Sunday night I went to bed with high hopes and big plans for Monday.
Man, I was going to get back into the homeschooling mode, finish whipping the house into shape after the Christmas un-decorating, go to the library, clip the dog's nails, do laundry (it was laundry day, after all), and do several of the "key" items on my to-do list.
I was going to exercise and eat better and ignore the almond roca in the fridge and certainly not drink any diet pepsi or eat any Costco-670-calorie-poppy seed-muffins.
Monday morning rolled around and I could barely drag myself out of bed. I pushed that snooze button one to many times.
If you are on facebook with me, you may remember that I spent some time whining about not having any diet pepsi until my oldest took pity on me (or wanted to shut me up) and brought me one.....forever redeeming himself for all those middle of the night diaper changes and 2 a.m. drinks of water.
I think I avoided eating any almond roca for maybe 30 minutes after I woke up. I downed the muffin while I drank my diet pepsi. The only exercise I got was bending over to pick up a piece of almond roca that I dropped on the floor......do you really have to ask whether I ate it or not? Hel-lo, chocolate!!!!!
I did manage to throw some meat into the crockpot, but that was self-preservation. I didn't want to be scrambling for dinner at 5:00 p.m.
However, while making the rest of the dinner I managed to start a small fire, which I also mentioned on fb just in case you missed it.
Mostly, I sat around telling myself that there was always hope for Tuesday. Goodness, why is it so hard to get back into a home and homeschooling routine after being on vacation for two weeks?
So, now I am pinning the hopes of the civilized world onto today, Tuesday. Tuesday is the day that I will wash 15,000 loads of laundry, organize every closet and drawer in my home, cook a 25-course dinner, lose 20 pounds, decorate every room so that even Better Homes & Gardens magazine would drool, and homeschool my son so well that he will be able to get a job as a college professor at Harvard by lunchtime.
While I'm doing all that, you can pop over to the Five Mom's blog to see who the winner of December's giveaway is!
