Mrs. Nurse Boy here.
Last week flew right by and it is, somehow, already Monday. This weekend was busy, fun, and germ-filled. I am on a mission to clean EVERYTHING since the stomach bug reared it's ugly head yesterday, so random thoughts are my gift to you:
**Murphy's law: Last night, right before bed, Bruiser planted his forehead into a piece of furniture that was in his way. Yes, he has a HUGE bump on his forehead. Of course, today is picture day at school.
**At least he didn't try to cut his own hair the night before pictures. I may or may not have done that once or twice during my childhood. Never could pull off that uneven bang look.
**I don't think I am going to survive the boys' homework this year. Some afternoons it feels like I am homeschooling. Thankfully, they are excellent students and are pretty independent workers. If it weren't for that, I am afraid I just might lose my sanity.
**I have been on a baking kick when I should have been on a CLEANING kick. My freezer is full of goodies and my house is a mess. Which makes me want to sit in front of my freezer and eat frozen cookies instead of cleaning.
**I am a bit of a procrastinator, if you couldn't already tell.
**Sweet Pea is obsessed with having her nails painted, only to peel off the polish a couple of hours later and demand a new color. She is already showing signs of her Diva nature. Pray for me.
**Why is there always one kid in the house who just can't move faster than a snail in the mornings? Bruiser, I love you, but only one of us can be a slow moving grump in the mornings. I have already auditioned and accepted the role, thankyouverymuch.
**A free People Magazine showed up in my mailbox last week. I am embarrassed by just how much joy it brought me.
**Yes, I can be a bit shallow. I'll own it.
**Why is my kitchen full of pens that no longer work? Why can't people actually THROW AWAY the pens that refuse to write? Instead, they promptly return them to the drawer for the next fool (me!) who desires a writing utensil. Next thing I know, I am writing with a crayon.
Happy Monday to you! I am off to spend the day with one of my BFF's... Clorox Wipes!
