here it is 6:30 am on Monday December 20th...leaving 4 days till Christmas.
I think I may need to panic here soon, or something.
You see I have yet to do any Christmas shopping, haven't yet determined the budget,
I have to head to work in a bit and will later today have a meeting with the loss
Prevention guy from corporate...
Oh and Monster is puking everywhere! Thunderous has a headache and a stomachache...
not puking yet
Eldest is being extremely responsible (or just trying to avoid the vomiting) and is
insisting she must go to school as she has finals.

I have a headache.

and tummy kinda hurts too.

wonder how fast the week will go...

Little things

One way I have tried to keep me out of jail or an asylum is to be amused by the little things.
Laugh instead of scream.

It may sound cruel but today I abut died laughing when Thunderous yelled to Monster "I do not have an issue!"
Of course it was in reply to her comment, "You have issues." After he explained to her how he was using a ruler and some math the figure out how to draw Denmark's flag so it wasn't off center, but was still accurate...

Thunderous is literal, obsessive, and abhors chaos... and chaos is anything that is not even, precise, orderly: classic for his 'Issues'

This is Denmark's flag for those who don't know:

Do you see his dilemma? To be accurate and precise he must show it EXACTLY as it should be...but... "Do you know how hard it is for me to draw off center?!" he exclaims after explaining it again to his dad & I.

I am so impressed that he is trying...not screaming tearing the paper up and destroying a room...just using what he knows works for him (art & math) and trying.

It may still come to tears, but till then at least we laughed.

a haiku to wake up too

I can't decide yet...
Doctor Pepper in morning,
or coco better?

it seems either way
I am dependent on them
to start the day well.

Maybe I should change...
get more sleep and vitamins,
not fake stimulants.

hummm...asleep on time?
that's not going to happen.
Doctor Pepper then!

cold dose of caffeine!
(and maybe a bran muffin)
I can pretend health :)
