Monday mornings...

Sometimes no matter how much you plan, things just won't work out well on Monday mornings.

My boys HAVE a little check list to make sure they've got their "i's" dotted and their "t's" crossed before bed. And, they have another one to go through to make sure they're ready for the day in the mornings... and it never seems like on Mondays they've looked at either one.

Drew is missing a belt.... it's no where to be found. Luckily he has a backup but seriously... how hard IS IT to walk in your room after school, take off your shoes and put them in the closet as you reach for a change of clothes only to put your dirty ones right there IN THE HAMPER (gasp--what a concept!) as you're changing. When you remove your belt, you simply insert it into the next day's space that is already filled with socks and a shirt. Imagine the simplicity.

Better yet, imagine if you'd gone through your "Before Bed" routine where it says "Lay out your clothes for tomorrow." At THAT POINT you'd see that you needed your belt that was MIA.

Josh was jammin on The Rolling Stones and now I have "I know, it's only rock 'n roll, but I like it" stuck in my head! I walked in there to give him a time (five minutes to go) count so he knew how long he had to primp.

When we were at Wal-Mart the other day he said he needed deodorant. He wanted the spray kind. I bought said spray kind. That shit is a toxic fume. I don't know how much he put on but that stuff.... OH.MY.GOSH is the most awful smelling stANKy stuff known to man. And it toxified the ENTIRE UPSTAIRS! GROSS. Until the bottle is gone, he is only allowed to use it in his bathroom with the door shut AND the vent fan on. It's that pungent.

And speaking of deodorant, I don't get all the weird smells. I've been wearing Secret Solid in powder fresh scent since I was in junior high... JUNIOR HIGH PEOPLE. I've tried a new one here and there but it seems odd to me to have something that is highly perfume-y emanating from my pits. They're pits, not a cologne counter. The smell of your pits shouldn't over power any perfume you may put on. What a mess of competing odoriferous orifices (say that ten times real fast) you would have. YUCK!

Today, the sprinkler system repair people are supposed to come. Yippie. I'm also supposed to go to lunch with a good friend. Not looking forward to that. Not because I don't enjoy her company but where we're going... let's just say I would gain back all 6 pounds that I've lost. Ugh! Sigh. What to do ... what to do...
