My house is clean. Abby is dressed and her hair is brushed neatly into pigtails with bows. J.T. is quietly reading a book on his bed. I am lounging in my PJ's with a glass of wine and a very good book. Everything is still. Everything is neat. Everyone is behaving.
But then..... I open my eyes. There are 150 index cards strewn across the carpet in the den. A wet towel lies forgotten in the hallway. Abby is naked as the day she was born and is refusing to keep both panties and clothing on. Her hair would make Medusa's look like something in Vogue. J.T. is doing gymnastics off the couch (whose cushions are NOT where they are supposed to be). I am not in my PJ's, things are not quiet as I am repeating the following over and over: Stop that! Leave him/her alone!! If I have to tell you one more time....., and please, please, please don't do that anymore! If ya'll don't quit that, I'm going to sell you on ebay. I'm NOT kidding!!! There are two small people who are a constant blur of motion.
Not a great time to misplace my corkscrew is it? My bottle of wine sits on the counter. Yellowtail Shiraz.... still tightly sealed with cork firmly in place.... mocking me. Sob!
