Make Work for Mom day

Here is a recap:

7am - rip off sheets from bed and dangle them from rafters of top bunk to make fort

7:30 - rip off clothes from hangers in closet- spewing them everywhere - to make mobile out of said hangers

8am- spray garbage can with Lysol only to find out in mid-spray that I am "pledging" it instead. It will fear all dust bunnies under the sink now.

8:30- on our way out the door to drive to school when small child decides to have a poop. Cannot drive in the van with the stench, so proceed to put in into the dust free rubbish bin instead.

8:50 - arrive home and sugar my coffee twice - drink it anyway, as I think I may not get a chance to eat breakfast and so I will need the sugar later on.

9am- pull all toys out in the living room, only to decide that outside play is more fun.

10am- drink coffee that has been nuked already once, with too much sugar and count the hours until my day is over.

11am - start lunch, which is now a proven fact that takes twice as long to make as it does to inhale/dump on floor/complain about/pick apart.

11:30-sweep hardwood floors for the 1 millionth time this day.

12pm - get one daycare kiddie up from morning nap and proceed to lay another one down before the blankets even cool down.

1pm-blog about my morning.

Thanks for letting me vent. Girls road trip cannot come fast enough.

Ahhh triple nuked coffee, my favourite. Though my is decaf so it's sans the caffeine buzz. And 7am is the BEST time for forts, really.

ya, that day sounds about right. Throw in a temper tantrum or two or six.
What girls roadtrip? Was I invited? Are you coming to see me??????
That would be awesome. I promise to make you some hot coffee and let you drink it in total peace!

Hey, I recently added a news widget from to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.

That is so funny and so incredibly tiring at the same time. Hang in there.
