This will make being a soccer mom a lot easier!

BOO'd my neighbour across the street. I did not get caught so I considered my mission a success! Every day I have been looking out my front window and she still hasn't put her sign up! Do you have any idea how hard it is to bite my tongue and not ask her why she isn't playing along?! I think I will have the Suburban Prince drop a hint of some sort!


On Friday I


On Saturday morning my housekeeper showed up an hour late, and since I assumed she wasn't showing up at all I resigned myself to doing all the cleaning myself. I wouldn't have bothered but I had company coming and little or no patience for this sort of drama. When I stopped screaming after she snuck up on me (Ok to be fair the hoover was running and I didn't hear her coming in so alright, she didn't actually sneak up on me) she told me it isn't working out. Huh? No kidding! The moment I had to start the search for the mop I knew this wasn't going to work out! I just don't understand why she came here an hour late to quit! Nice eh! Fortunately housekeepers are a dime a dozen and I have someone coming tomorrow to meet us and hopefully start this week!
Before you think I am a terrible boss - don't...this didn't work out because I just cant tolerate an employee who lets their personal issues interfere with their job. I am very kind to people who work for me but this isn't the first time she was late or just didn't show up. One time she actually called in because she was too hungover to come to work!


I have everything ready for this week! The lists are made, most of the groceries have been purchased and I have my schedule laid out. I am ready! I think Halloween is my new favourite holiday - it's kind of like Christmas with the decorations, candy and fun but without all the annoyances like trying to find a gift for my 75 year old mother in law who doesn't want anything! I cant wait to see the Little Prince in his monkey costume!

Have a fabulous day!

I love my LV but my goodness...oh who am I kidding...I know I will see a soccer mom or dad with this bag eventually! With any luck they will only be sold to professional soccer players!

You are a busy lady, I hope everything goes well for you for Halloween! The monkey costume sounds adorable and that LV bag is amazing!

Is she in college? Isn't that the only time a hangover is an acceptable excuse? Ah ha ha.

Aw, it is such a shame your neighbor isn't participating in the BOOd extravaganza yet. The little Prince will HAVE to drop a hint to get these neighbors into the holiday spirit. Have a wonderful week! It sounds like you're well prepared for the upcoming festivities. :)

We don't do that Boo thing here.

I can't wait for Halloween. My son is aching to wear his costume out.

You're so right :)It's so important to give back. Someone once said, "The rent we pay for our time here on earth is the service we render others"...Glad to hear your booing is still a success! XO

So sorry your housekeeper didn't work out : ( That is so frustrating when people show up late for anything job-related, especially when it's always personal issue-related.

I can't believe your neighbor isn't participating in the Boo thing! If I was your neighbor, I'd be playing right along with ya! : )

I love your bag... major bag lust here.

Hey, does being the daughter to a soccer coach count? :)

Can't wait to see the pictures of your little monkey on Halloween.

Gorgeous LV! Remember the LV soccer balls when the world cup was in France? I always wondered who bought that because I just couldnt see anyone buying that because that was the equivilent of kicking around an LV purse in my opinion! Househelp hunting drives me nuts- I am willing to pay a premium for a good, reliable one, I also cant stand ones that show up late or do a half-arsed job!

Aw, that's too bad that your neighbor isn't playing along. I have a girlfriend that will not celebrate anything Halloween for religious reasons. Maybe that's why?

Good luck getting a new housekeeper. I'm so particular I just can't bring myself to hire anyone even though I spend most of my weekends cleaning!! at least you tried with this one!

I love that bag!!!

And you should totally tell your neighbor to start BOOing people. Party pooper.

I know you'll find a great housekeeper in no time. Too bad I don't live closer or else I would do it for you. :) XOXO
