How I KNOW it's Monday

It starts out quietly, I'm sleeping, having a dream about being in a singing competition with Brittany Spears and low and behold, she gets disqualified....for lip singing. (Didn't see that one coming!) And then it happens ... the alarm goes off! Push snooze once, irritated because it was so nice to have just turned it off all weekend.

Fall asleep again, this time not long enough to remember a dream before the alarm goes off again! UGH

Small bicker between me and the husband about how he should get out of bed.

And now I'm awake.

Husband hands me the lap top and I check all my blogs and my emails and TRY to stay relaxed. I figure if I ease into the day things will go better. But alas, impossibe!

Shirts are missing, must go for a treasure hunt through the laundry. Kids are up and wanting to eat, but as I enter the kitchen I see that dinner is still on the table! UGH That's what I get for staying upstairs and reading all night directly after dinner. Someone didn't do their chores...

And then it happens. 8:30am. I don't know what it is about this time of the day but it never fails. Every Monday morning at 8:30am they start.

"Give me my car back!"

"Stop touching me!"

"Don't do that, you're going to break it!"

and in perfect three part harmony, "MOM!"

After I hear that three letter word - and the creeping sensation runs through me as though I'd just heard nails scratched against a chalkboard while seeing a nest of spiders sitting on my bed- I KNOW it's Monday!

ahh the pain of Monday. Glorious isn't it? That old familiar feeling comes rushing back into us first thing Monday morning. I was determined to sleep in today, I really was. I had it planned, penciled right into my diary...right there. Sleep in. Because you see my youngest children are away on vacation for 2 weeks without Mommy. Bliss you say? Would be....except my friggin body clock doesn't forget I'm a Mother and THUS wakes ME UP BY 7AM TO GET OUT OF BED!
I hate my body. I want a new one. x

LOL, so true! Why must the drama start so early, that's what I want to know. Why can't they be quiet and somewhat cranky for the first three hours after rising like me? ;)

Mesina...I so know what you are talking about. It happens to me EVERY weekend. Sigh....

T. Anne... Seriously!!! Don't they know that is how they are SUPPOSE to act in the morning? It comes naturally to me, how come not to them?

Maybe you should stay in bed until, say 8:31. :)

Love this picture as we had two newly added kittens to our home this weekend, and let's just say they like to play a LOT at NIGHT when we are trying to SLEEP!

Is it Monday morning already??

Mondays belong in the Yick category. The world would be so much better if we only had six days a week instead of seven.

Jessica said...

LOL! So do you homeschool?
Yuck on the dinner dishes too. I would NOT like that. Heehee. Glad you enjoyed a book though. ;-)

It's not only Monday--it's late August Monday--which is like a 30 foot tidal wave compared to the gentle lapping at the shore.

We'll survive. I hope?
