It's THAT kind of day!

It's 1:14pm and I'm ready for bed!  It's been one of those days.

As I type this, I'm watching Amelia stand on the window sill in the living room.  It's pouring rain...and has been since about 11pm last night.  There are piles of folded clothes sitting on the coffee table surrounding the bird cage.  For the last 30 minutes, the bird has been trying to get out of his cage.  Perhaps he hates the laundry as much as I do. He can almost get the door up far enough to get out....he just needs another bird to help him and he would be on the Widener's most wanted list!  Clearly, this is how he broke free from his previous owners.

On the homeschool front, we've gotten very little done today.  Sigh.  To tell you the truth, I'm not into it today either.  My re staging PET Scan is tomorrow and that's all I can think about.  It's scheduled for 7:30am.  I need to be there by 7:20am and I can't have any caffeine for 12 hours before the test. Yuk, yuk, yuk!

I didn't want to miss any of the Superbowl (or the commercials), so the dinner dishes never got done last night.  Consequently, they are still in the sink.  I ignored them as I fixed lunch.  I need to get them done before Dan gets home so he never finds out about his slothful wife.

I have resisted sitting the kids in front of the television, but, my resolve is faltering.  To be honest, I just want to curl up under a blanket in my recliner with the cat on my lap and let the kids drink in some Spongebob for the rest of the day.

Now, if I could just get the bird to put away all the folded clothes...

You are in my prayers.

You are in my prayers! I hope your PET scan comes back good. I think we all have days that we just want to curl back into the blankets. You are a wonderful woman though and you need to be sure you cut yourself some slack. Give the kids some reading assignments or pop in an 'educational'/'spiritual' DVD for them & relax.
