Reasons I don't blog more

It's baseball season around here.  The math hardly does the reality of the situation justice.  Four boys {times} two games a week {equals} insanity.  But it's just a season.  A short(ish) three month season.  As I told a friend earlier this week, I'm learning to enjoy drowning in a storm of constant activity.  Great pics of them in action are a consolation.

But it's not all fun and games around here.  I've had lots of late night laundry dates with my washing machine, making sure uniforms are clean for looming games.  Entering the hallowed ground of the laundry room the other night, I was stunned by an unknown stench.  There was a pile of clothes waiting to be washed, but even after I finished that load (plus two others behind it) the odor remained.  It smelled like your car might smell if someone left a soggy, wet diaper in it over a long hot weekend.  And I couldn't find the source.  Anywhere.  When I called in the entire baintrain,  stringbain suggested it smelled like someone had peed in the dryer. 

Of course that suggestion met with all eyes on the youngest, butterbain, and me googling my memory banks trying to recall if I'd ever specifically said NOT to pee in the dyer. 
 Nothing.  No confession and no culprit.  

Until the next day when I received this text from our Fairy Godmother/Babysitter:

Getting to the bottom of these stinky mysteries takes lots of time away from my computer - sniffing around our laundry room/office and help from outside sources. 

When I'm not busy drowning in baseball or laundry, the need for non-emergent medical care also keeps my fingers away from the keyboard.

No big whoop, just a block of wood to the eye during a little game they made up called Deadliest Warrior. Nothing like 12year old tears and the horrific realization that he could be blind "on accident" to keep you away from the keyboard. The game is now banned from their playlist.

This afternoon's payoff to all the recent insanity is unplugging for a few hours in our ice cold creek
Consolation indeed.

Do we live in the same house? Hokey pete! I have a list of blog posts I need/want to get up, but not time between track, travel basketball, softball, and soccer +umpteen recitals and concerts! Help me.... Thankfully the only stinky smell in my house was tracked down to a rotten garlic bulb. Hang in there, it's only a season.
