Good Job, Monday

Good job, Monday!  You lived up to your reputation.  In the course of the day, my car found a sneaky dip in the road.  Not only did it scare the bejesus out of me, but there is now a nice new hole in the plastic undercarriage of my vehicle.  Then, there was the debacle at the playground involving Noah and a younger boy, who suddenly went ape and wrapped his arms around Noah's head and began yanking, to which Noah responded with a few slaps.  When I asked them what they were playing, Noah said, "We were just playing banker." Hmmm...now, that's one disgruntled customer.

This evening, I felt like I was sinking in a quicksand of dirty laundry and clutter.  It seemed all the work I had accomplished earlier in the day, had been undone during the hour I ran to the grocery store.  The scene I returned home to reminded me of a quote from one of my favorite writers, Erma Bombeck, "Cleaning the house while the kids are still growing, is like shoveling snow, while it's still snowing."

Good night, Monday.  It's time to put you to bed. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
