Some days you just can't get ahead

Lately, I have had waaay too many days when I felt like this. Oddly, being that it was a Monday and I'm sure by now everyone knows I feel about Mondays, yesterday turned out decent. Better than decent.

Wrote about a character with anger issues and how he dealt with betrayal.

Started the new index cards for Brooklyn's revision. Half way done.

Loads and loads of laundry cleaned, folded and put away. (How did all these clothes pile up anyway? Are the kids hoarding dirty underwear under their beds or something?)

At sunset, the kids and I sat around in the backyard, enjoying the sweet smell of freshly mowed grass and talking about everything. And to end the night, we watched the newest Doctor Who.

Does it get anymore perfect?

Sweet 16

After the crazy, anything and everything could go wrong week, it was time to sit back and party some. Okay, no party. Girl didn't want anything resembling a gathering. And the Girl looked ready to rip out throats if anyone attempted to sing Happy Birthday.

I hummed it.

Girl swore she was disowning me.

Five minutes later, she was back for more teasing.

Favorite present? Johnny Depp's character the Mad Hatter.

Because everyone needs a little Johnny in a box.

The MOM Challenge

My week kinda looks like this so far: disinfect the house from sick girl germs, play nursemaid, cleanup dog vomit, pay bills, take care of multiple phone calls, order flowers for a funeral, plan a birthday, supervise the lawn care, make something edible to eat, laundry, more laundry, dishes, deal with doctors, teachers, more teachers, juggle the legal yuck over the boy’s car accident, listen to one child’s rants, another child’s mad ravings from fever, sounding board for my husband, visited the drug store so much that I’m on a first name basis with the pharmacist--and I still found a little bit of time to write.

And it’s only Thursday.

Back from vacation

It was great to see some family. We had a lot of fun in Orlando at Universal. We had Easter dinner with some friends. The downside to all this? I’m dragging this Monday morning. Bah. I need a longer holiday.
