I had such grandiose plans for this evening....I was going to (please put immense stress on those two words going to) get dinner done~~kitchen cleaned~~ baths taken~~ books read~~ boys kissed and in bed~~a basket of laundry folded~~and then
the next hour or so the rest of the evening would be mine to read some of the things that people had written for Mrs. G's "What's an average day for you?" project.
After picking up the boys at their respective places this evening, I really should have paid more attention to THIS....as we were coming home....it might have saved us all a lot of heartache and Advil.
Take one 6-year-old whose afternoon naps at the daycare, in preparation for 1st grade have been taken away
One 10-year-old older brother who couldn't care less about what his little brother is all about right at this moment
A room full of Lego's, a small table (from where I couldn't tell you!), ALL the futons and blankets from both beds, and the small pillows (5 in total) from the living room, AND about 15 various stuffed critters thrown on the floor of the room
And what do you get?!?!?!?
Well....keeping in mind that at dinner time, yours truly could completely sympathize with her own mother when it came to two little boys at the dinner table, laughing and being total goofy while trying to eat and being reprimanded by me and the K-man just making it worse and dinner ending with both boys being sent away from the table for some "get out of here before someone chokes or gets a spanking"-time....yes, this was the proverbial "icing on the cake", "straw that broke the camels back", the moment where "Mommy has left the building". Yep....this was me.
So...let me just say, here and now that
The only things standing between my sons and being exiled to Siberia were...
A can of this.....
while sitting in this for about 20 minutes....(but with hot, steamy water, of course, silly goose!) And then an episode of this man. Mommy is all better now....man....talk about going ballistic!! I may have to apologize to my neighbors for the ruckus. I wonder if there is a special present for that I should take to them?!?!
I will get to the G-Factor's site and read what people have written.....but later.
Right now....I'm going to do some junbi ("preparation") for tomorrow's classes and then I'm "hitting the hay".....Say "Goodnight Dick"!
Sweet dreams. Oh...and before I go....check out the moon tonight...It really was beautiful ...but...be careful, okay? :-D I'm just warnin' ya!!
