I have the computer today, so as I ate my breakfast I was reading Facebook. The house was quiet. Why? Hotrod was eating and Princess was in time-out. As I read, my thoughts started to turn....
'man, I could use a cup of coffee. I will potty and then go make me a cup.'
Princess- "momma, stinky!"
Me - "go to the bathroom, I am coming!"
We make it in time. As my little one sits there my brain starts to turn again...
'this bathroom needs to be cleaned. I will add that to my list today. Wait, why is there pee all over the toilet?'
Me -"Hotrod!!!!! there is pee all over the toilet!!"
Hotrod -"oh, sorry."
Me- "Hotrod, go and get your sister some panties, please"
'I could sure use that cup of coffee...wait, I still have to potty. I will do that next.'
Princess is done, so I put on her panties and realize the dryer is now complete.
'the kids need clothes and the dryer is done I will do that now."
Me- "Princess, Hotrod! come get dressed!"
As I sit on the floor getting Princess dressed it dawns on me....
'wait...I still have to potty...and I have yet to get to that cup of coffee.'
I finally make it to the bathroom and then head to the kitchen to make some coffee.
I grab the compost container to put in the coffee grounds and Princess sees the orange peels.
Princess - "orraannggggeee, please, momma, please."
Me - "Alright"
So as I am peeling her an orange, Hotrod comes, sees, and wants one. So as I am peeling his orange, he wants to draw on the counter with chalk. I have yet to clean the kitchen.
Me - "Let me finish with your orange and then I will wipe the counter for you to draw on."
As I am wiping the counter, my thoughts go back to that cup of coffee I was supposed to be making...
'oh, that's right. coffee...'
I turn to my percolator and start to clean it out. I only get half way through when I stop to clean the kitchen. Why? I can't get the percolator in the sink for the dishes.
'I think I will call ________ while I clean the kitchen, it always make cleaning easier.'
So I go find my phone, make the call and leave a message. I make my way back to the kitchen and find the diaper that I had laid on the buffet to throw away, pick it up, throw it away, and start to do the dishes.
Finally done with that chore, I wipe down all the countertops, put all the glasses that I didn't see earlier in the dishwasher, and finally get the coffeepot rinsed out....and the coffee made!!!
I am now enjoying my cup of coffee as I sit here writing...wait...aren't those my breakfast dishes???
