funny stuff on a less than stellar day

I have no discernible reason, other than a wee bit tired, but I am just not in my groove. Maybe I got woken earlier than I’d like, but if you knew the not-so-early hour that I was awoken, sympathy wouldn’t be a natural outflow.

1. You go on a trip away from the kiddos and always return home with pencils and books. Keep it educational. 2. You lock your kids out of the house so they get fresh air. Or I’ll bet all moms do that? 3. You insist that you all sit outside in winter jackets on frozen … Continue reading
