Thursday Smursday

It is not even noon yet.

  • The Monkey (my new name for the Mad Toddler, since he outgrew his name) has been climbing on furniture all morning, liberally throwing out exasperated "whatevers" to me at regular intervals. You know, just to make me feel good.
  • I discovered that Romeo and Cookie Boy have not brushed their teeth with toothpaste for over a week.
  • I totally lost my temper over the whole Non-Toothpaste Brushing Sessions.
  • Another book is yet again rejected. They are all so nice in their rejections. Do they mean it? Or is it publisher code for "you stink, but since we are nice people we will soften the blow"?
  • I have already raided the forgotten Easter candy ArtGuy and I shoved in the Monkey's closet (or, as we refer to it, "the closet in the extra room", since the Monkey seems to be our permanent roommate)
  • I have already hit the Diet Dr. Pepper!
What does all this mean?

IT'S THURSDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I always know when it is Thursday, because everything goes south! All the energy I began the week with is gone, baby gone! My deepest desire is to crawl back into bed with a bowl of snacks and a good book.

But, in good news, ArtGuy finally scheduled a date for us tomorrow night! And no one is sick (yet) or injured (for now), we have a babysitter (at the moment), and somewhere for The Young Adult to go hang out (since he is 13 and the babysitter is a 14 year old friend).

Just gotta make through today.

Ironically, we are probably going to go see "Thor". (You know Thor - Thursday).
