Okay, so it’s not Monday, but nonetheless, I’ve had better days when life feels chaotic….
My youngest is sick again. We, as an entire family, have been stuck on a vicious cycle of being sick since September. This week, it’s my husband and our youngest who are coughing like crazy. My husband thinks he has allergies, yet sounds like he is coughing up a lung (or two). Our youngest, has bronchiolitis (for adults, they call it bronchitis). Unfortunately, her asthma is making it difficult for her to breathe. She’s already been hospitalized twice this year due to her asthma messing with her colds (or her colds messing with her asthma). Either way, as a mom, it scares me whenever she gets sick. The slightest wheeze, I am on her like a hawk monitoring her breathing. The other day, she was prescribed some heavy artillery asthma meds; in which, we hope will keep her from having to go to the hospital.
I’m A Lazy Cook. We’ve been indulging in many nights (mornings and afternoons too) in deliciously expensive addicting fast food. Ever since the dishwasher caught on fire, no fault of my own this time (the calcium build-up was burning), I haven’t been in the mood to cook again. I’ve lost all motivation. I am just tired of wasting food from the grocery store. Today, is my shopping day and I am just frustrated trying to come up with a satisfying meal-plan. It seems as if I’m constantly buying food – but, where does it all go?
A “Soon” Deadline Maybe, it’s just me, but I don’t like unknown deadlines; mostly, because I am a procrastinator (I openly and honestly admit). I do my best work during the last “crunching” hour. However, the project I am tasked with right now, is going to take me a couple of days to complete. I’ve gotten most of it together, but some of the things left, require a lot of typing (yay, me) and a few other things are time-sensitive that require to be processed closer to the deadline (not a procrastination thing); yet, the so-called deadline is in limbo. People just keep telling me, “soon.” What does “soon” mean?!
I Just Cleaned My House At some point, in between 7pm last night and 6am this morning, our house looks as if it exploded! I remember cleaning it yesterday, but this morning, I cannot figure out what happened; however, my bets are on the 2 year old. I mean, that would explain the donkey on the kitchen counter (a bouncy seat toy). Generally, no big deal, but family is supposed to be visiting tonight!
Lost Glasses In The Room of Doom Our oldest wears glasses and this morning, she lost them. She lost them in her room. Her room looks like the Temple of Doom, booby-trapped with a minefield of toys, stuffed animals, books, and pesky legos! The rule is that she cleans her room every night, so that I do not break my neck trying to get to her bed to wake her up every morning for school- and of course, cleanliness is a good habit too. Most nights we are on it, but last night, we had family movie night; in which, we all fell asleep afterwards. But, had I known her room was going to swallow her glasses whole this morning, we would have cleaned it. So- finding lost glasses is on my list today.
Halloween Is Still Here On my to-do list is to take down the Halloween decorations (outside). BUT it is soooooo cold today!!! Maybe…we’ll try again tomorrow. I read somewhere, that putting up Christmas decorations early can make a person happier (well, probably not so much the neighbors). I thought about it, but again, my OCD doesn’t like decorations in the house. I can clutter the outside of our house until my hearts content; but inside, it must be subtle with a warm, inviting, decor flow.
Ugh….Christmas, I haven’t even thought about my Christmas to-do list!!
A Laundry List Of To-Do’s, But It’s FRIDAY Although I have a long to-do list, those are just a few things that are stuck on my mind. In fact, it’s not really that bad. I feel better just talking about it, plus, it’s Friday! How can a Friday act like a Monday anyway – it can’t, it’s against the rules of whatever rules govern the days of the week (no such thing, btw). I mean, you know, every day of the week is something: Mondays are terrible, Tuesday is for tacos, Wednesday is hump-day, Thursday is catch up day, Friday is happy, Saturday is fun, and Sunday is relaxing. So, Friday’s are just not allowed to be like Monday’s. But, every day, can certainly be Taco Tuesday! 🙂
Thanks for enduring my rambling nonsense today. I wish everyone a Happy Friday and hope everyone has a great weekend!!
