it’s 7:58 p.m. the dishes are still piled up in the sink. there is flour all over the counter and the stove. i hate making gravy from scratch. there is half an acorn squash and the rest of dinner to put away. i’m behind on some reading i’m supposed to be doing. the girls need their hair brushed, and their nails clipped and books before bed. the dog keeps staring at me to go out. this annoys me. the cat threw up on the bed while i was at work. this annoys me. i have to find someplace out in all that snow to throw the rabbit litter. the compost will have to wait until tomorrow. it’s the 5:00 a.m. morning tomorrow and the girls have no school….again. snow is supposed to start falling tomorrow afternoon, again, after we just shoveled and plowed over two feet. my back kind of aches. a lot. i want to go to bed…now. but that stuff up there, well, that has to be dealt with. and perhaps my children should go to bed. and the dog, yep, should go out. i need a maid. or a nanny. or a husband. or something.
see why i haven’t been posting. it’s kind of not sunshine and rose petals and goodness here this week… just to keep it real.
