I am a TOTAL creature of habit. I like things to be done and am not a fan of surprises when it comes to daily routines. I have two children, so I know that all days aren't going to work exactly like I like them and I know that unforeseen circumstances will occur.
At night, before I go to bed, the dishwasher is unloaded, the floors have been swept and mopped, all mini toys have been picked up, my coffee pot is set, and things are pretty much neat and tidy in the Molly Lou house. I know this may seem excessive, but I am "a clean freak" as Mr. Molly Lou so lovingly describes me and if I get the basics like coffee set and dishwasher unloaded, then it is one less thing that I have to do in the morning.
Last night, we had a lighting debacle. We have been trying to put a new light up in the dining room for a few days. There is some problem left from the "interesting one" regarding the wires, so this is why it wasn't hung days ago. Last night, we hung the light and then started to tackle the wires. It got dark, mini #1 was still up, and Mr. Molly Lou decided to call his hear ol' dad for some help.
Mini #1 knows just how to sweet talk me some nights and wanted me to lay with him. I gave in and went upstairs with him. Of course, I fell asleep snuggling with him and when I came down, I just couldn't get it together.
I hadn't swept or mopped, the dishwasher hadn't even been started, there were pieces of wire, tools, box pieces all over the table and floor, and more tools strewn about the hutch and other places. I decided I would take care of it this morning, started the dishwasher, and made my way to my bed.
Fast forward to this morning, Mini #1 is in my bed at 3:00 am and feels that it's a great time to chat it up with Mom and Dad. I get up early, didn't realize that Mr. Molly Lou wouldn't pick up ANY tool strewn about and leave his soda can, bottle, glasses all over, and that he turned the kitchen breaker off (half of it) and didn't turn back on! YES, I said it. The laundry is included in said breaker, so the clothes I put in to wash last night didn't finish their cycle and were a lovely mush in the washer. The dishes hadn't even been ran in the dishwasher, but the worst, it turned off the clock on my coffee pot and therefore automatic timer...NO COFFEE WAITING FOR ME THIS MORNING! AHHHHHHHHHH!
I know these are REALLY minor things, but ugggggghhhhhh!
