I'm no Martha Stewart!!

Yes, I'm sure most of you who read my last blog post have read that before. :)  It's supposedly Martha Stewart's letter to Erma Bombeck.  It just made me giggle as I thought about how ridiculous it is.  As I watch myself running around in a tizzy trying to accomplish necessary?....required?.....desired?....tasks, it causes me to pause and ponder a bit. I find myself more able to relate to what is supposed to be Erma Bombeck's response:

Dear Martha,
I'm writing this on the back of an old shopping list, pay no attention to the coffee and jelly stains. I'm 20 minutes late getting my daughter up for school, packing a lunch with one hand, on the phone with the dog pound, seems old Ruff needs bailing out again. Burnt my arm on the curling iron when I was trying to make those cute curly fries, how DO they do that? Still can't find the scissors to cut out some snowflakes, tried using an old disposable razor ... trashed the tablecloth. Tried that cranberry thing, frozen cranberries mushed up after I defrosted them in the microwave. Oh, and don't use Fruity Pebbles as a substitute in that Rice Krispie snowball recipe, unless you happen to like a disgusting shade that resembles puke! The smoke alarm is going off, talk to ya later.
Ahhhh, making memories! :)
