tragedies

I know, there should be no heartache on a Friday evening. So much hope and freedom a Friday brings - it's time to forget about school and think about all the footloose woooooohooooo that is possible for two days. There should be dancing and cheering.

Yet I am feeling drained. My hair is so straight and patently uninspired it makes me sad just thinking about it, much less witnessing it in the mirror. I haven't taken off my coat since I got home, nearly two hours ago, simply because the closet feels far away. I've spoken perhaps 10 words to my kids, and most of them had to do with getting off the computer and doing something constructive (ha). I'm supposed to be preparing dinner for those kids so my man & I can hit the town. In an hour. Our cat's litter box is making my eyes water but I can't find the garbage can we empty it into, and I'm too frickin' lazy at this point to bring the rolling one around. I won't look directly at the mess that is my kitchen. I'm trying not to panic about getting this house cleaned before my parents & cousin arrive Wednesday. I don't know yet if the Cowboys/Redskins game is going to be televised this Sunday.

Calgon, take me away! But then I'd have to clean the bathtub...

Oh dear. Long day? Hope tonight cures you of all that drains...It will all get done. It typically does.

(I won't outline the fact the no happy gnomes or fairies do the heavy lifting, but you knew that already, huh?)

ahhh, I so miss the Redskins/Cowboys games of my childhood (growing up in Maryland)when Monk was great. That rivalry brought family and friends together to cheer. I, however, am a Redskins fan... and I'm taking from Kate's comment that you are a Cowboys fan. *sigh* I shall try my very hardest to not hold it against you, and I hope that you will afford me the same. I really liked you before I found out you like the Cowboys... *barf*
