Quick – make a wish!
What did you wish for? Don’t worry about it not coming true. This is the internet, where dreams come true in droves, right? I wished for abundant energy. And a clone. And the skin of my youth. And a steak (I get hungry after 10:00). And for the clock to tick a little slower so I could have a bit more time to make more wishes.
Lee is out of town this week. I think I mentioned that already. So far the kids and I have survived three days. Just five to go. It’s not bad, really. When I know Lee is going to be gone, it’s not much to dig my heels in and take the bull by the horn. I switch into survival mode. It’s all about going from one minute to the next. Breakfast? Done. Teeth brushed? Done (most days). House picked up. Meh. Homework? Check! Baths? Got it! Bedtime? Hallelujah!
This week is a bit different, though. Painters are here doing that which I can’t…painting. The house is being beautified and I must say it is looking spectacular. Could I have done the painting myself? Probably. But not likely. I hate painting. It falls in line between walking on glass, rolling in fire and visiting the lady doctor. Let’s put it this way…I’d rather do laundry and mop simultaneously than paint a wall.
So painters are here, which means the kiddos and I have to be out every morning and we stay out until the evening. That’s a lot of time away from home. And we’re all camping out in my room because the rest of the house smells like paint. We’re all a little tired.
I’ve also had more than one person give me more than enough to think about as far as how I manage my time and what I do in my spare time. It’s been great food for thought and has had me mulling over a few things lately.
So tonight I will sleep for a short while. And tomorrow out we’ll go, wasting time, living life, surviving until daddy gets home.
Speaking of daddy, I didn’t even get to talk with him today. *sad face*
It’s 11:22 and I still don’t have a clone, the clock is still ticking, no one has brought me a juicy steak and I can feel wrinkles developing. I guess I shouldn’t have told you my wishes after all, eh?
Does anyone have good news to share with me today? I could use a little cheering up to get me through the halfway point…
