(What? This isn't your favorite day?)
I'll admit, I was dreading this one. My in-laws were here for the weekend. (That isn't dreadful; they're wonderful people). But the kids stay up later when they're here. Our guests had to get up and leave even earlier than I normally wake the kids for school. I wanted to be up to have coffee and tell them goodbye, before waking the kids. But I don't do early, well!
While I was trying to get a few last winks in before I had to get up, the dog heard our guests getting ready and began BARKING. So I rose to quiet her, started with the coffee, and have been going ever since. The youngest child (the only one who does not have to be anywhere, today) was the first child to wake, of course. So I was thinking we would both shoot for a nice NAP today. But by now I've had far too much coffee to ever actually sleep, anytime soon, so I'm typing, cleaning up, chasing the dog, forgetting what I was typing, reading blogs and then standing in my kitchen trying to remember what I was doing. I'm moving, I feel busy but I haven't accomplished much. I look much like this:
So I stopped, tried to stand still and check in here. I read the comments for my last entry. I had not yet made to Joshilyn Jackson's blog this morning but Tracy had! I was so excited to see her comment (thank you, Tracy!) and hopped right on over to FTK. There is my name, right there on her blog! You can go see it--under "Winners and a whiner!" (I often fall into the latter category but today I fit in both!) Thank you to you all! (If it weren't for my readers here, I'd have no reason to link to her.) I can't wait to read American Rose! (OK, one more thing to "fit in" but it'll be worth it. Look for a review here, soon!)
