The continuous flow from the caffeine I-V contraption has been so needed today.
translation: I love Treat receipts from Starbucks…buy a coffee in the morning and get another one in the afternoon for $2!
Normal morning filled with the tired-achy-whiny complaints from peanut gallery.
translation: The weather is dealing my hubby’s sinuses fits and he had a headache. My 20 year old is doing a new workout…OUCH! My youngest just wanted to stay in bed and could not understand why he could smart-mouth back at me this morning…
The spaghetti-twined-route between each errand was like a tangled strand of pearls.
translation: I incorporated every back road to conserve gas…Isn’t that smart?
Watching reflections and shadows on a cement pond!
translation: Waiting in the car outside the tinted TKD studio.
I can go home in 30 minutes…and fix dinner! Then my feet can go up!
“All In All…Who Could Ask For Anything More?”
“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”
It is one of those days…
An event filled Monday…is there any other kind?
Just Your Average Run-Of-The-Mill Mondays!
I woke up before my alarm could jerk me from my peaceful slumber…which was way before the butt-crack-of-dawn. I followed the same path taken every morning in true automatic pilot fashion. Once the lattes and breakfast were complete I was off again back up to hubby’s office to enjoy a quiet 55 minutes before he got ready for work.
I planned the day and and shook my head. “Combining trips are essential to my survival!”
*I wrangled the laundry into the washer early this morning and headed back upstairs to pick up after my own laziness.
*I opened the cabinet under my bathroom sink and started throwing things away.
*I took all of the empty coat hangers out of my closet and took them to the laundry room.
*I woke up the huddle masses yearning to sleep just before “Precious Princess'” groomer arrived for a pamper and cut.
*I ran to the bank…to Starbucks (added nutrition of course)…and to the dry-cleaner.
After lunch I am…
*Trying a new method and product to refinish the wood floors in desperate need of help.
*Make a decision about what we will eat for dinner.
*Leave for our first Basketball practice of the season.
Once home…RELAX…WITH FEET UP!
I have managed to accomplish other errands and chores which I find myself doing everyday as well as connecting with an old friend and making a lunch-date on Monday…back to school celebration!
(Woo Hoo…oh boy…YeeHaw…goody goody…)
Please excuse my momentary celebration!
Well I am off to move the laundry and fold the next load. All in all it has been a great Monday…Wow! Did I just say that?
One last thought…my oldest is an official resident of Dallas, Texas. He left yesterday and arrived safe and sound!
Till next time…
“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and some really fabulous coffee!”
It’s Here! It’s Finally Here…Friday! The day we all love to dream about Monday through Thursday! This Friday is unique for several reasons…Let me explain!
There is only one more Friday left on my son’s school calendar…8 days until school is out!
This is the Friday before Mother’s Day
This is the Friday before my hubby’s birthday…and NO! He is not old!
This Friday means only 2 more Fridays until vacation…( Yipee…Joy…Yea Me…) “Oops…Sorry!”
This Friday means only 3 more Fridays until VBS (Vacation Bible School)…I will need to fit in some planning before I leave town.
And to push the proverbial envelope…10 more Fridays till my birthday. “No it is not on the 10th Friday…”
Excitement is beginning to set in as “General Mom” puts on her “strategic planning and preparation” hat and climbs in her tank with a huge-oversized-coffee-cup. “Nothing is getting in my way…so move or be run over!” I have started the various lists and have been planning a soft itinerary. My poor phone and pad are getting a real workout as I bounce back and forth as one is often on the charger while I use the other.
I am not that bad…”I don’t think!” Let’s call it “OEADHD” (Overly Excited Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
My youngest is leaving to go on his first official “Youth Retreat” with our church on the 27th. My incredible-dear-sweet-loving-hunk-of-a-husband informed me the other night of another retreat…ours! Here is the biggie!
BY OURSELVES…NO KIDS…JUST US…
It has been a long time since we have done this. “Did I mention it had been a long time…12 Years! Told you it had been a long time. The rest if the family…my 3 older sons will be staying home…working…manning the fort…taking care of my Precious Princess. Hopefully they will not kill each other. Hubby and I will be visiting two locations neither of us have ever been. “I have been to one location but was only on the outskirts never the tourist part of the city.” I will not spoil the surprise but reveal it while on vacation.
Spoilers! No amount of arm twisting will force this information from my lips…don’t forget I am in “General Mom” mode and am driving a tank.
What am I doing?…I have more planning to do and lists to make and errands to run! “I’m off!”
Have a great day!
