I lay there, desperately needing to go back to sleep. The clock glows 7:13... not bad, but for a Saturday morning, I could do better. I cuddle deeper into the blankets, trying to stay warm and hope to doze off quickly.
Unfortunately, that doesn't happen.
Within minutes, there are two little monsters in my room, fighting over who gets to lay where. There's also a pouncing, excited dog digging her bony elbows into my marshmallow center. OOWWW! One of the three starts licking my face... which one, I'm still not sure...
Before I even get to the bottom of the stairs, I hear the two previously mentioned monsters fighting, yet again... And again... And Again!
"I hate this cartoon!"
"I had that first!"
"I get to play!"
"You let the dog out!"
Here we go... a day with everyone fighting and crabby... my favorite! This, of course, makes me the happiest of people to be with!
I muster up enough energy to reheat some left over pancakes for the kids. Cereal for me and the Monster King, a pot of coffee and "happy pills" on the side. Will it get better from here? I guess we'll see...
