Ahh… yes. It is Monday. Again. This means that I must first try and gather my sanity and organize my thoughts. Oh, and yeah… do that cleaning thing again. On top of all of the cleaning and picking-up after everyone, I must squeeze in the time to homeschool my Noah boy. Oh! And all while attached to a 9 month old (I swear, the boy is ALWAYS hungry… or thirsty… however you want to weigh that out.).
AND… not to mention… today marks mine and Ben’s 4 year Anniversary. Heart. Heart. Heart. Ex-Oh. Ex-Oh. Ex-Oh. (insert doves, ribbons and all things LOVE – here.) This means that I have to find the time to shower and get dressed-up. With makeup. In something pretty. And spray on that little sweet smelling stuff that he likes so much (reminder: NOT the one that smells like his mother-in-law).
BUT… (no, not butt. I knew that’s what you were thinking – dirty!)… we live in this super small town and we don’t really have anyone that we can leave the boys with for a short night-out together. Not to mention that it has been… well… lets see… um… lets just say a VERY long time since Ben and I have done something like that. I am talking, where we’ve been able to have a nice romantic dinner. Time where we could relax without distractions. Where we could talk our mildly-mature strategies on our future with the boys (Yeah. That is what I think we would do IF we were to have our alone-little-special-romantic-get-away-dinner.).
So… while I procrastinate on chores and all the other important things that I should be doing, I will sit and ponder on a special night-out with the hubby while I sip on a nice tall glass of York Peppermint Patty latte and drown out the ambiance of my screaming children.
Here’s for a
manic controlled Monday, my friends!
