Life By The Numbers

12 - The number of shoes strewn on the living room floor.

45 - The number of minutes the baby napped today.

37 - The number of minutes he screamed before he took the nap.

4 - The number of times I had to ask #1 Son to take out the trash (one for each can in the house).

6 - The number of dirty cups in The Princess' room.

2 - The number of times The Princess was reminded to take towels when she went to shower.

53 - The number of minutes she stubbornly sat in the bathroom "air-drying."

3 - The number of times I calmly asked them to quit fighting.

5 - The number of times I "strongly suggested" they leave each other alone.

7 - The number of times I screamed "KNOCK IT OFF!"

13 - The number of days until school starts.

About Me: I'm the mom of three: #1 Son (20), The Princess of Wails (17) and their baby brother - The Baby (6). I was a grad-student working on an MA in history until we were surprised - I mean blessed - with The Baby. I'll get back to it...someday (the thesis, not the kid - I have no choice concerning the kid). I am one of only a few people I went to school with who is actually using their history degree in my career (and to think my Father called it Basket-weaving!). I live a very hectic life amongst massive clutter. I call it a good day if we have managed to get home at night without losing one of the kids (no matter how hard I try!). Friends say I have a humorous take on life's happenings. The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying.
