How to Make a Manic (agitated, frenzied, frantic) Monday.

I wish it was Sunday. That's my FUN day.

Actually I don't really care. I mean, it IS a manic Monday, but the rest of that just got stuck in my head. I really DON'T wish it was (were) Sunday because then I'd have to do this morning all over again. And um, no thank you.

So what ingredients make up such a Monday?

I'm gonna get to that in just a second but let me switch gears for a second and first say:
Thank You for all of your comments on yesterday's post. I want to express my sincere gratitude. It's always difficult to throw something like that out there, but y'all are so gentle and encouraging - you make it easier. Sincerely! You really, really warmed my heart.
Y'all are the best. Fuh real. :)


Okay, now back to How to Make a Frantic Monday.

1) Find clothes in dryer on Sunday that didn't finish drying when the electricity went out on Friday due to Ike. Clothes now carry the repugnant stench of mold. Clothes are darks. So they cannot be purged with copious amounts of Clorox that may or may not make clothes disintegrate. But hey! It gets rid of mold. Or at least the foul odor of the mold. Clorox 2 not as effective at exorcising mold demons. What to do?!

2) Add to that one over-flowing toilet with someone's business floating around, as my excited children said, 'like little boats'. When the water FINALLY receded, after much shrieking and yelping and plunging and flushing, the kids wished aloud excitedly: "I hope it does that AGAIN!" Who knows WHAT they'll tell their teachers today!

3) Mix in more FILTHY, REPULSIVE, VILE towels with still no Clorox and a Mom with hair too ratty to go out in public to buy some until after she's showered (even at Wal-Mart which has no standards)...

.... and you could have your very own manic (agitated, frenzied, frantic) Monday morning.

Dude.

I hope this isn't setting the pattern for the rest of the day.

Love the "little boats" comment ... oh, kids say the dandest things.

I cannot stand when clothes don't dry all the way. The mildew smell makes me sick. I would just throw a little Clorox in and hope for the best. There's nothing worse than drying your clean body off with mildew-ey towels. YUCK.

Your week will get better.

Hey, you never answered my questions from the previous posts? What up?
