I Will Hug Today, Love Today, Squeeze Today, and Call it George

Monday is not my best day of the week. I am usually frazzled, wrinkled, and stressed.

But today?

The girls were fed and dressed by 7:30.

We left for daycare and work by 8.

In a clean car.

I am wearing “new” white pants from Banana Republic (hand-me-downs from my mom, so technically they are new to me)…and they are still white.

Miss C was excited beyond belief because she and one of her best friends at daycare are wearing the same skirt today.

I thought I’d made a mistake in a document I’d sent to a client for work, but it turns out I didn’t.

Two out of three beds in our house are made.

I am caught up on laundry.

I listed a few things on eBay last night and people are already stalking them.

I have a vague idea of what I am making for dinner.

I heard some vintage Dwight on the radio on the way home (now you know I have an inner honky tonk girl just dyin’ to get out.)

And yes it’s a fine day, despite the fact that when I got home from taking the hubby a turkey sandwich and started to make one for myself I couldn’t find the package of sliced deli turkey anywhere. I called the hubby to make sure I hadn’t put the package of meat in with his lunch and then he asked, “Have you checked the yard?”



I went outside and sure enough there was the tell tale mangled plastic package on the ground. Of course I’m the idiot who left it out on the counter and didn’t shut the dogs out.

Oh no, Jack’s not feeling guilty.


And yes, he’s notorious for doing this sort of thing.

    Wow- send some of your white pants wearing good karma my way. Speaking of beds, I did get mine made today, and I thought THAT was great. Hope the rest of your day is just as grand!

    What is with the dogs today – mine slipped through the fence and was missing for a couple of hours – very scary! Glad your day is the best Monday it can be.

    Sounds like a great Monday to me. Hope it continued to go well. Mine was pretty good too, imagine that.

    I’m going private blogging for now and I’d like to send you an invite. If you’re interested let me know!

    my head is spinning at the thought of white pants. I think maybe I’ll get to wear those when I am old and gray, assuming I don’t have any incontinence issues. you go!

    Lately, getting out of bed and getting me and the girls dressed is a real accomplishment.

    Reading your blog cheers me up!!!!!

    You rock with the white pants and making the beds.
