Monday Monday

I'm yawning, but now I have no choice but to ignore it. DH left for work before 6 (he's strange that way) and I managed to get up by 6:40 (only 30 minutes later than I set the alarm). I managed to shower, dress, swish and swipe the bathroom, and pull together a load of laundry before the kids got up. Not bad. I had stressed to them when they got ready for bed how great it would be for them to get dressed when they heard the music at 7 o o (clock radio let's them know it's okay to get out of bed), and they did! Fabulous!!!

The kids and I have now eaten, we're all dressed, I have a load of laundry to fold, and they are playing on their own. A babysitter is comig over in about half an hour for a good portion of the day so I can sort through lots of paperwork and at least finish all the bulletin boards in my classroom. Hopefully I'll also have time to start making the activity sheets I'll need for Hebrew School.

And I keep on yawning.

I have a big post brewing about the purpose of life and the idea of striving to be the best you can be, but that will have to wait for another day. I have laundry to fold!

Good job!! You can keep it up!

Often I have the best ideas for posts when I'm laying in bed nowhere near my laptop. Of course I don't remember when I am at the computer, LOL.

Hi Rachel

A paper on the meaning of life to write and a large pile of laundry to fold?

Ever considered that perhaps the laundry is all there is? That the laundry IS the meaning of life? (in a bleak existential kind of way, obviously).

Picking up after kids often feels that way to me…
