Mondays...not just for the 9 to 5 ers

Earlier in the day I found myself with no shit...14 items on my to-do list. I am not ashamed to admit that one of those items on the list was a shower. The usual nominees made it as well: laundry, running the vacuum, errands and my personal fave cleaning the bathrooms.

Speaking of bathrooms, I came head to head today with one of the filthiest when my son had to "pee potty". The place: Big Lots. The urge to throw up at the smell: 9.2 (on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest). But we made it without incident and an obliging employee led us both there matching our same haste. Big Lots is kind of a dirty sort of store anyways so you always have to wonder at what the john looks like.

The kids are finally off to bed, and I am settling in to the time change. Grey tried to surpass his 3 book quota for the evening. So I negotiated "park time" with him for tomorrow. We will see what happens.
