An Easy Saturday

I woke up in a really good mood and ready to attack the day. My son woke me up and said "I wanted you to have enough time to wake up and drink coffee before you had to drive me to the bowling alley" This absolutely cracked me up! He's 15 and perfectly capable of walking or riding his bike the 1 mile, but the way he said it (or maybe I'd actually had enough sleep for once) just made it sound like the funniest thing I'd heard in ages. Anyways, that all came crashing down as soon as I came downstairs for coffee. My father was up and I began to tell him this hilarious story when he began yelling at me "Why did he wake you up?" Suddenly I was a 7 year old with no good explanation and was about to get the third degree. I stammered "I don't know" and tears began to well. So much for my good day. My father continued to yell at me about how he had taken my son to get my son's bowling ball out of my car (4 miles away where the car was stuck until some Fix-A-Flat was put into it) and how he told my son to let me sleep. For the next hour I just kept recounting the incident trying to come up with an explanation of why *I* got yelled at, but couldn't come up with one.

I really did try to get myself motivated after that. I did some basic house cleaning, but for the most part, I just wanted to go back to bed and have the day over with already. So, instead I pretty much played on Facebook all day. The be all, end all of time waste.

I did do sweep and mop the kitchen floor, which was sorely needed. Don't believe me?


This is the section of the floor near the sink and coffee pot and is the worst (okay, besides under the garbage can). So, now it looks more like this:


Today my main goals are the attic space in the boys room (I mean Jordan's room). Sighhhhh, I really have to get used to only having one child left in the house. I'll basically be taking everything out and putting it back in some form of organization. My Christmas stuff is in there as well, so I'll be able to start my Christmas list and see who I still need to buy for this year.


  1. I am so sorry you had to go through that and I totally understand you not being able to shake it off.You should not have to deal with that witah all you do for everyone. Hope today is better for you.

  2. Good job on that floor! When can I expect you over to do mine? ;)
