Monday: Wake up. Uh-oh. What’s this? A cold? I HAVE A COLD? WOE IS ME. Oh, wait. I’m not a man. Proceed with day.
Tuesday: Wake up twenty seconds later than usual due to cold. Notice Husbandrinka having breakfast with the kids. Notice that Young Ladrinka is sitting next to a tube of Benadryl Cream.
Turns out that Young Ladrinka is covered with hives.
Take Young Ladrinka to the pediatrician who confirms that Young Ladrinka is covered with hives. Tragically, they are contagious and despite Young Ladrinka’s protestations that he doesn’t want his class mates to “catch the itch” and go through the hell that he’s been going through, he’s Claritined and dispatched to school.
Marinka: still sniffly. See, Monday. Cold.
Wednesday: Wake up. Thank the Good Lord in Heaven that Beautiful Daughter’s High School Applications are not due until December 1st. A whole month to work on them together by the cozy fireplace!
Get email from guidance counselor saying “Where’s the draft application, dumbass, remember they’re due on November 1st not on December 1st, you demented moron” (or words to that effect.)
Thursday: Wake up. Coldless. See that Kristine’s son reviewed Wanted:Cat. Automatically place Kristine & Son on Preferred Blogger list and demote everyone whose child has not reviewed Wanted:Cat to a different list. Not necessary worse list. Just different.
Oh yeah, high school applications. Send Beautiful Daughter a text reminder.
Friday: Wake up. What? A Wanted: Cat review and giveaway?! Stasha and her son are now on the Preferred Blogger list and Kristine and her son, well, they’re on a different Preferred Blogger list.
Thank you, ladies for giving birth to such wonderful boys with great taste in literature!
So. How was your week? Did you wake up?
