Monday, Monday

I woke up this morning feeling awful -- not a fever, not a cold -- just not good. Therefore, I decided that other than a few self-directed activities, the kids were going to get a day to enjoy the lovely spring weather.

Naturally, every time I leave my room, I notice that the house has deteriorated a few more steps into chaos, but I was expecting that.

Then I heard from upstairs, "Mom, the toilet is clogged!" I just didn't want to deal with it right then and yelled back that the child should find another receptacle. At which point I heard, "But Mom, you don't understand! Water is flowing all over the floor."

Well that got my attention! Toilet plunging, several towels and some bleach later, I think things are relatively ok. The floor probably needs another mopping, but I plan to leave that for later, because I still feel awful and mopping stinky bathrooms doesn't help much.

So how is your Monday going?

Much better than yours, I must say. I'm feeling all kinds of achy today, so walking very slowly and as little as possible. Only three weeks to go until this baby is out in the world and I think I am ready. I hope Tuesday is better for you!

Relatively speaking - fantastic.

Oh no!

Incidents like that are sometimes the only reason I get the bathroom floors scrubbed.

Ugh. So sorry for you, Jordana! Why is it always when we can handle it the least that we have to handle it? Don't answer that. Sanctification, right? ((hugs)) coming your way!
