Monday (insert big sigh here)....
Why are Monday's so...... Monday??? I got up early, ironed JD's clothes, did a load of clothes, got my coffee, sat down for my 5 seconds of "me" time (while Kaden was chattering in his sleep... pretty cute I must say) JD comes out ready for work and looks and me, hesitates because he knows what is coming, and says "I forgot about my meeting this afternoon. I need a suit and tie." OK- I had to stop myself from morphing into the Devil-Drea. SURE- iron your clothes AGAIN- let me get right on that........" GRRRRRR....stomp stomp.....
I hate ironing and he knows it. I would love to claim the homemaker of the year that keeps all the ironing done weeks in advance, blah blah blah, but our closet is so cramped that I REFUSE to iron things twice (into the closet, then out of the closet)and all of you with children know that anything done after 5 pm consists of feeding, bathing and putting someone to bed..... so I iron in the mornings, EVERY morning. This may change when the kids go to school.... but I doubt it. That just means I will be up at 6 instead of 7 because who needs sleep at this point- I am almost 7 years into it- I can do most daily operations with one eye opened.
OK- Ironing rant ended.
We had a great weekend. We didn't have church all weekend due to a death. The kids and I got up Saturday morning and went to the mountain (aka Skyline) for the grandkids celebration (we hadn't had a party for anyone- so we had a "Happy Birthday Kids" cake for all of them. (My 5 year old nephew Brayden saw "Birthday" and said "There is MY name" like he was the only one cake worthy ... he is a ham)The kids had intended to swim in Nanny's pool but opted for playing in the rain all day. They had a blast and came home SUPER tired.
The kids and I spent our Day of Rest yesterday doing just that.... at our fave hangout... Uncle Jimmy's and Aunt Sissanne's. JD joined us later in the day for supper. It was nice hanging out with them all day- we see their house and pool more than we get to see them :)
And here we are- headed into another week of BIRTHDAY :) Kaylee takes all year to plan out her birthday- so I am anxious to see what I am going to have to do some compromising on :)
OH - and if you want a New Harmony CD- we have them. we have lots of them. we need you to want one. :)
