Just because I feel like I deserved it, dang it.

As far as Mondays go....it was a Monday in every sense of the meaning.

Waking up with some hoojiness still in my system and needing an extra cup of java to get my butt genki. (awake)...

Crabby little boys not wanting to get up in the morning...

Backpack not ready to go to school, even though Mom was told last night
"Of course, it's ready...I told you it was."....

Realizing that I had forgotten a load of wash in the machine yesterday and having to do it again because it didn't really smell very good....

Headache starting about 2:00...just in time to walk over to the school for my "walking home patrol" duty and walk 3....three...little 1st graders from our neighborhood home...3. I cancelled a class so I could do that because it's my responsibility......

Coming home about an hour later than usual and having to get dinner on the table...

Having an argument with little "dr. jekyll/mr. hyde" Koji about bad manners and yelling at Mommy and how both of those are pretty much NOT what we do around here.....

Realizing that a)the hoojiness was, yep, still there and b)there were no beers in the fridge.

Yes...because of all that (and a few other, smaller little tidbits)...

I deserve THIS tonight....
...and a little bit of this....

....and...oh yeah...some of this......

Just saying a little prayer thanking God for all the beauty and goodness that surrounds me that makes me feel better when I truly reach out and embrace it (oh Lord, if I only could!!).

Amen.



Gosh....prayer really does help. I feel a little better already.


Happy Monday everyone....you may come back for inspiration anytime you feel a need for it...or if you just want to look at something vrrrrry nice.

Mmmm, thanks for that pick-me-up! I've been very lucky lately because Nickelodeon is running lots of commercials for their Kids' Choice awards and guess who is hosting? Mmm-hmmm!

Feel better!

If you figure out how to have the backpack ready by the door (without my having put it there), let me know, k?

Yes, I agree with smalltownmom, thanks for the pick me up and the smile! That's my kind of praying!! :-)

Hoojiness is my new favorite word--thankfully mine was gone this morning.

I hope Tuesday finds everything just a little bit better for you.
