Mrs. Nurse Boy here.
It is Monday, so that must mean it is time for some randomness... or mess. I'll let you decide.
~This morning I awoke to my 10 year old whispering in my ear. I lifted my head CERTAIN that it was 3 AM. I was wrong. I couldn't have been more wrong. It was 45 minutes later than I normally emerge from my sweet slumber!!!
~I knew one day that my dear friend, The Snooze Button, would fail me.
~Waking everyone up abruptly with lights and a "PLEASE hurry this morning!" didn't go over so well with the younger two.
~I had to skip my shower and wash my hair in the kitchen sink.
~Yes, I know that is a little white trash. I'll own it.
~Reflecting on my morning, I am now worried that Sweet Pea never brushed her teeth. Yep, I am up for mother of the year.
~My thirties have not been kind to me. I REALLY need to wear makeup. However, this morning did not allow for such luxuries.
~Miracles do happen. The boys made it to school on time and Sweet Pea and I made it to work on time. I am NOT kidding, it was a miracle.
~Although, I probably looked like anything BUT a miracle.
~The brake light would not turn off in my van today. Figures.
~When Bruiser came home from school today, he asked me if I was sick. When I said I felt fine, he said my eyes looked red and weird.
~Um, yeah. Those are called dark circles under my eyes. They happen to be the ONLY Italian gene that was handed down to me. Yeah, I am so thankful.
~More like my Mary Kay lady is thankful. Thankful that I buy concealer in mass quantities.
~I could have inherited the thick, dark hair or the olive complexion. But, no. It was the dark circles (under my blue -very Irish- eyes) ever since the tender age of 3. And, they have only gotten darker.
~Our Christmas tree is STILL not decorated.
~My kids think they are abused since our tree is still not decorated.
~To top it off, my Christmas shopping has barely begun.
~I think I need a personal assistant, don't you?
Happy Monday! Here's hoping that my best friend, Concealer, and I get to spend some quality time together tomorrow.
