they say if you want to hear God laugh then tell Him your plans.
i think i heard a chuckle today.
you see today i had big plans:
volunteer at the school library, work at the hardware store, make sugar cookies, teach a craft class, update my shoppe, catch up on blogs and so on.
you get the idea right?
here is my day in reality:
share bed with sick husband, wake up to discover kids have lice,
panic, keep kids home from school, call friend in panic, panic more, forget to show up at school library, throw a load of bedding in the washer, go to walgreens to pick up lice treatments, obsess, come home to discover the cat has vomited in 3 different places, start 2nd load of laundry, begin lice treatment on son, continue with daughter, strip another bed and start another load...oh, did i mention that my dryer has a high pitch squeal so the wet laundry is piling up in the kitchen for a trip to the laundry mat, nitpick jude's hair, shave jude's head, rinse said head, another load, soak all hair products & brushes, nitpick delia's head, deal (or not deal) with tears, rinse, nitpick some more, get kids snack, obsess, nitpick, vacuum, laundry,
and so on and so on.
now we are off to the laundromat with about 8 loads of wet laundry and the slipcover to the sofa.
the life of a mother is so glamorous.
now can someone please get me a double shot latte.
don't you wish you could live my extraordinary life?
