Mondays of the swearing variety.

I may or may not of/ have (someone please explain that rule to me) muttered words of the four- letter persuasion when the following things did or did not happen.  Possibly, maybe, almost certainly.

One of my children came home from school with head lice.

I stepped on the scale last Monday morning and found that all of my sweat, spinach and sit-ups produced a loss of one HALF pound.

I stepped on the scale again this am and found that a diligent repeat of the three S's produced a loss of NOTHING!  That makes me want to swear again.

I walked away from my computer for approximately 3 seconds and found that one of my children had "edited" my paper.  The paper due that evening and that I had already poured the majority of my working brain cells.

Yesterday morning my daughter stepped on my bare toe with her church shoes.  That made me feel nice and spiritual.

Smelling dog poop in the middle of the grocery store and realizing that it came from my son's shoe.  The same son's shoe that was wrapped around my waist as I carried him into the store.  The same son's shoe that was so nicely tucked between my jacket and my jeans.

Hearing my son dumping domino's all over my laundry room floor.  All one hundred and ninety million of them.  In case you were wondering they make a very distinctive sound that says "you'll never find all of us, sucker!"

My youngest son got us suspended from the gym for 30 days.  That means 30 days without the gym and their 90 (per day) minutes of childcare.  I may go insane.

Happy blankety blank Monday!



  1. I do NOT blame you one bit for using a 4 letter word for any/all of those events.

    I hope Tuesday goes better. And as for the 1/2 pound thing- at least it wasn't a gain of 2 pounds. Yup- gained 2 pounds this week. Hoping it is water weight.

  2. Boo. My Monday was filled with yucks, but yours are definitely more intense. So you made my day feel better. You did me a service, so thank you :).

  3. Dog poop = ewwwww
    Head lice = my worst nightmare! I hope that your other kids don't get it and that you don't have to wash every piece of laundry and bedding in your whole house.

    And, how did your son get you get kicked out of the gym?

    And, the correct choice between of & have is "have" -- I lost a few too many points on high school essays over that one. =)

    1. Thanks to Mrs. Himes, I don't even think I can write "might of" in anything... Not even sure if I use it on FB posts...

  4. now i'm curious what you have to do to be suspended from the gym! ;)

  5. A day like that would've produced a whole lot more than a few "choice" words from me! ;) Here's to hoping for a much better rest of the week.

  6. Oh man!! Days like that are the WORST!! And of course being a Monday on top of it doesn't help!!


I wanna hear what you have to say, so write. Pretty please.
