It's Monday. The start of a new week. I can't believe that I am starting my week feeling so tired. Maybe it's the fact that 23 weeks worth of making a baby is starting to catch up with me now ;0) Somehow, I blame the Monday blues though. This morning was one of those mornings where I totally overslept. I blame that on the fact that we had no electricity this morning which is why the alarm never went off ... which more significantly meant that there was no coffee to face the morning with!!! Thank goodness my eldest gets a lift to school this week (we alternate with our neighbors) and Angelee's school times are way more flexible. Once I finally got myself ready and walked outside I spotted a pair of Angelee's shoes which she left outside overnight that the puppy found and chewed to pieces! Trying not to loose it with the dog, I FINALLY got her and myself in the car. As I took a breath, I almost threw up! She had stepped FRESH doggie doo over the seats as she got in ... and to make matters even worse, I sat on my chair before I realized what she had just walked all over my seat!!!!!! So instead of easing into my day I had to rush to drop her off in the smelly car ... then drop it off at the car wash for a valet. Oh my goodness!!! What a day!
So to de-stress I am off to our mid year book club function tonight where we be doing a fun gift exchange game and enjoy a yummy supper (and when I say supper I actually mean a table full of yummy deserts - hee hee) over much needed girl catch up and giggle time. The gift exchange game is so much fun! We all get to pick a number out of the box. The person with the first number gets to pick a gift first and open it. It remains theirs as long as the person with the next number doesn't like and choose to "steal" it from them, where they then have to unwrap another pressie. Each pressie can only move 3 times and then it becomes safe. The game goes on until the person with the highest number then gets to choose which gift she would like the most out of all the gifts. You can imagine the shrieks of laughter and protest when a favorite pressie gets swiped. So here are my pressies all wrapped up and ready to be swapped. I'll post an update tomorrow on how the fun goes.
Well, I've got to say that after unloading the days events I feel so much better. I also realize how many comical and special moments have been unwrapped in all the busyness. Even Mondays can make us smile :0)
