Hello Monday!

This morning, I meandered into the kitchen to start the coffee pot and discovered it was.... MONDAY. There was no bread for toast, no frozen waffles for the B, no milk for cereal, no butter so even if we'd had waffles and toast... eh... Also no juice for the baby. It was in a word: wonderful. And I mean that from the bottom of my bitchy sarcastic heart. *laughs* The kids ended up having go-gurt for breakfast this morning with some dry cereal on the side, and then I loaded them up to head to the grocery store.

Can I just say how much nicer the store is early in the morning when most people are still sleeping or at work? It's nice. Much nicer than going mid-afternoon. Now we are home and Nadia is happily munching on powdered donuts and chocolate milk (I know, I'm like champion mom today for the meal plan!), Calvin is napping, and I'm going over the long list of things I need to do today.

For starters, as I was putting groceries away, I realized it was time, yet again, to clean out the fridge. Then I need to do some dishes and make some phone calls. After that, there is a large pile of laundry waiting for me that I at least need to put a dent in today if nothing else. There is tons more, I'm sure, but that's probably about all I will be able to manage if I'm being optimistic, and despite it being monday, I'm trying to be. *laughs*

How is everyone else's monday going?

i didnt do much of anything today. laundry. thats about it.

whenever i do 'big shopping' (ie-a weeks worth of groceries at least),i do it first thing in the morning. my daughter is better behaved then, no one is cranky, and the store is virtually empty. it made the whole trip much more pleasant.
