I didn't pet the dog,
because he chewed up both A/C wires today.
And I didn't touch the laundry,
I'm not as young as I once was,
and so I took a nap instead of doing half the chores.
Notice I said, "Half."
But the half I neglected are the most obvious.
No one will care that I did the grocery shopping,
and ran the errands.
They will only notice that I didn't clean my bedroom again,
and the kitchen didn't get mopped.
The presents are purchased and wrapped.
There will be no sneaking of any peeks this year.
And I am officially finished doing the single-mom thing.
I will have to repeat my song all week until I finally finish my chores,
hopefully before next Sunday :)
Things I found interesting this week:
- The 6th grade boys are circulating the Hunger Games series.
- Maryn monkeys around saying, "Ma, Ma, Mommm, mom, mom, mom." She is a parrot, repeating the rest of the kids. It's amazing how many times a day I hear my name.
- People at Walmart are crazy. Colin is a people observer and was way too entertained by the midnight frenzy. Sydney has some video footage she might post to youTube.
Something I found sad this week:
The fire guys worked a few codes (near death/dead).
Our friend worked one that was a two year old on Thanksgiving who pulled a gate down on himself and got trapped. He was dead, and they revived him.....mostly.
He said it was really, really sad.
We can't be too careful with our kids.
Really, more than 2 minutes out of sight is too long.
And for me,
it's an enormous challenge.
There is a constant paranoia that battles my inability to be in all places at once.
