I Need Mary Poppins

I'm in a kerfunkle, and have been for a couple of days.

I feel out of sorts, tossed about, and just plain lazy. I don't like being lazy...laziness always make me feel crummy.

I need Mary Poppins on days like today. I want her to sing to me "a spoon full of sugar" and snap her little fingers until my home is clean. I want to fly a kite, and maybe even soar into wild blue with it. I want to jump into a painting and frolic (love that word) through the field with no cares at all. I want to curl up in a cozy bed, and instead of doing the singing, I want someone to rub my head and sing me to sleep.

I even want to feed the birds.

Okay, not so much on that last one. Actually, when I'm in a kerfunkle, I'd rather shoot the (loud, chirping at dawn) birds.

I don't really mean that.

On most days, that is.

Anyone have a chimney I can borrow?

I'm sorry you're in a kerfunkle (saw you with that word on twitter yesterday!)...just singing those songs makes me want to get up and move though....♫Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down...♫ or how about ♫Supercalafragalisticexpialadocious even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious...♫ Ok....that last one will be stuck in my head all day now! :-)

Don't let that Mary Poppins fool you! Have you seen that movie lately? It is so demeaning to men - Julie Andrews has been fooling us all way too long.

Go splash some water on your face and tell yourself, you're the mom! Then make sure you get a good night's sleep and try not to dream about web designs. ;)

I love Robin's advice! She obviously knows you well Sarah! We all get into kerfunkles and tomorrow is another day!

READ "Mary Poppins" and discover the "Real" Mary...she's a bit of a lush, actually...
The housework and laundry can wait...well, not Indefinitely...but it can wait :)

I think I have been in a post-vacation kerfunkle! I really need to snap out of it! Hope you are feeling better soon!

Yep, just went and ordered Mary Poppins the movie from our library! Thanks. Need to introduce my children to that one.

lol! I just mentioned to someone a couple days ago that I could use Mary Poppins for a few hours myself...she must have been busy though at your place cuz she never stopped by mine ;0) Blessings, Katy
