Monday Morning Musing
Some random thoughts inspired by my busy weekend. (Is there any other kind?)
*Never again do I venture into a grocery store on Superbowl Sunday. I don't care if it's milk, tampons or dog food that I'm out of. NEV-ER.
*Lone gunman--or conspiracy? No, I'm not talking about JFK, I'm talking about laundry! How is it that skipping one day--just one day!!!-- of doing laundry means the next day, there are at least three loads waiting. There are only four people in this house and at least one of them doesn't change his undies every day (my ten YO--he thinks I can't tell!) so where does it all come from??? I'm betting on conspiracy.
*McCaffrey's Law (since I'm no relation to Murphy): It is a scientific fact that while you are cleaning one room, your hubby and/or kids are trashing the others. You think I'd stop bothering after a while!
*Lastly... why is it that the more determined you are to have a quiet weekend, the less likely it is to happen? (or in other words--can I get a blizzard, please???)
I'll leave you with a quote from a woman who undoubtedly understood.... the late, great Erma Bombeck.
Do you know what you call those who use towels and never wash them, eat meals and never do the dishes, sit in rooms they never clean, and are entertained till they drop? If you have just answered, "A house guest," you're wrong because I have just described my kids. ~ Erma Bombeck
So how was your weekend? Did you get time to relax or spend it watching the clock, waiting for Monday to get here so you could finally have your house back?
