what I SAID was that I wanted the carpets shampooed.
what I MEANT was that the carpets were dirty and I needed to hire someone to clean them.
what RHENA HEARD was that I wanted her to dump shampoo in her brother's room and on her head. today. when I have a list a mile long of things to do.
What I SAID was that we have a lot of things to do today.
What I MEANT was that *I* have a lot of things to do today. outside of the house.
what THE KIDS HEARD was that they have to pull every trick in the book so that the morning will turn into one long stream of 'one step forward, two steps back' in efforts to get the children and myself dressed and suitable to actually leave the house.
What I SAID was that I would be blogging more.
What I MEANT is that I WANT to be blogging more cause I think I have a strong enough grip on my daily routine again that I can cut out some time for myself to do a little on-line fun.
What GOD HEARD was that I needed more shit to do around the house, including fun new ways to challenge me from NOT going past the brink of insanity and/or hiding under a pile of dirty clothes.
