Canna getta hella YES

It’s Friday and there have been 3 days of school and now we are bouncing around without knowing what to do, or being dissatisfied with our options. I may or may not have housework to do and perhaps I pine after my book or to finish that hat I’m working on. Inevitably,  there are interruptions if I do settle on something, and they are indicative of the life I lead…

Reasons Why I Rarely Ever Finish Anything:
* Someone needs to go to the bathroom but refuses to do so by themselves
* Someone has waited too late to go to the bathroom…
* Someone wants to help me clean up, therefore there is now twice as much to do after every act of cleaning
* Someone has stopped being interested in helping me clean up, so I need to start over
* I should put on the washing machine to wash while I do (insert repetitive task), therefore I need to gather, sort and convene all dirty clothes in the laundry
* Someone had an accident in their bed thay was not mentioned which I find while collecting dirty laundry upstairs
* Someone didn’t flush the toilet upstairs since last night. Cheese and rice, the stink! Open all windows and power clean upstairs bathroom
* Mini-clean all toilets since I have the gear in my hands now
* Do that load of laundry from 2 hours ago
* Go to the bathroom myself
* Interrupt constant bickering
* Sort through laundry in my own bedroom after walking towards the bathroom intent on a shower
* Tidy my wardrobe after putting away clothes
* Yell at someone to make their own bloody snack
* Admire handmade jewellery from 3 weeks ago, being thrust threw the open door while I shower
* Attempt nonchalant conversation with Husband while trying to hide the mess
* Give over in favour of wine.

I don’t usually have wine until dinner, but almost poured myself a glass after the school pick up. Nothing nonchalant about that!


Ways My Life Is Like a Soccer Game

Husband was watching the US v Portugal soccer game this afternoon, and the boys were jumping around on the couch being generally unhelpful. The similarities between the action here at home and the business onscreen were laughable enough to take notes.

* Lots of people running around in an overexcited manner;
*Injuries that are mostly exaggerated or fake;
* Time in half takes for-ev-errr; I just need this to be over already; when is bedtime?
* Bouncing things off heads and chests;
* Often kicking people instead of designated kicking items;
* Onlookers often in crazy outfits;
* Sometimes unfair refereeing;
* Yellow Cards (timeouts) and Red Cards (early bedtime);
* Cameras and phones everywhere to record all and sundry;
* People standing around holding their junk;
* Extra time for who ever cares, get in bed already;
* Exaggerated drama when things don’t go their way;
* People rehashing events of the day on social media after full time.
