Random Thursday

money, machine, manic, menaces…

I got up today with my only desire being to drink some coffee and goof off, but that wasn’t in the cards. Well, of course I had my coffee, but goofing off has been put off. And so has relaxing, napping, playing, watching television… For one, the children are still home sick (and I’m not going to mention the money needed for them to go to daycare/camp) and, for two, as I was cleaning off my desk last night I found all the papers and notes that reminded me of things that I’m behind on or that I need to take care of.

Let’s just say it’s a good thing I found the electric bill last night. Nothing like the threat of an off switch to make one take money from another obligation and put it somewhere else. That’s neither here nor there.

Or is it?

Obviously my brain has been tuned to the money channel. Or is that the lack of money channel?

Oh, did I tell you the washing machine is broken? Yup. Again. Remember it hasn’t been that long since I replaced it. … Ask me how many loads of laundry need to be done and what I’m going to do about it.

Uh, did I tell you I’m thinking about money?

So far I like the Mohawk haircut just fine. We’ll see how it looks as it grows out. Andre is quite pleased. In case you’re wondering what happened to his forehead: A little devil boy pushed him during the last week of school.

Andre, who is feeling a lot better today and still running a slight fever, went on a little outing with his father to get his hair cut into a Mohawk. Does mom like Mohawks? No, not really. But he’s a boy and it’ll grow or can be cut so no biggie.

Anna also wants a Mohawk. Although I made a deal with her that I would braid it into a Mohawk.

Then Amareah said she wants a Mohawk. Mind you that was after she said she didn’t. So now I have to braid two heads. Sigh… I’ll have to remember to post pictures.

Where was I?

Oh the kids. …

Except for the mastered skill of balancing a basket on my head while dressed in my self-made wrap dress that I later wrapped into a halter top and wore with shorts.

When RP came in from work this morning we had a few moments where I had him laughing about my attire and my desire to remain cool throughout these muggy days. If I’m going to be trapped with the kids then I might as well be comfortable, right?

Please excuse the dark circles under my eyes and the disheveled hair…

How’s your Thursday going?
