Today’s Mantra – I will NOT go crazy.

Today is one of those Monday’s where there aren’t enough hours in the day for thinking, let alone work, chores and kids.

For example – every time I sit down at my desk to ‘work’ my daughter yells at me from her computer, ‘Mom, you have to come see this!’ My son won’t do anything that requires clean hands, and seems to think that three layers of dirt on each finger is not sufficient enough. One of the dogs decided to be clever and managed to open the fish good container. I found the container (partially chewed) and the lid (decorated with teeth marks). Where all those fish flakes went – only tomorrow will tell, when all three dogs have had a chance to poo. Lovely.

I keep repeating in my mind today:

I will not go crazy.

I will not go crazy.

I will not go crazy.

I will not go crazy.

It seems to be working so far. But I’ve not finished with laundry yet, and I’d be willing to bet there’s at least one load of clean clothes the kids managed to stuff back into the dirty hamper because they were too lazy to put them away. Or ANOTHER pair of chewed up pants, socks or underwear that the puppy thought needed extra holes for ventilation.

And if my daughter loses her Social Studies workbook one more time this week, I might start slamming my head against the wall. To the beat of this…
