... and other Monday musings
Yes- my dogs wear diapers and that is the only reason they still live under our roof- otherwise they were doomed for the pound last week- the doggie diapers have saved them! No more “marking” and peeing on our furniture, and they’re not even trying to take the diapers off surprisingly… it’s a good thing.
Lessons I learned this weekend:
1. It’s OK to throw caution to the wind and let the kids play in the play place at Burger King. I prayed that they will not be infected with some weird play place disease. As a family we ate lunch and had a great time, and oddly enough we had the place to ourselves almost the entire time. (Maybe the other parents know something I don’t?) Seriously, the place was very clean and we did go a little later than normal lunch-time, so I am guessing & hoping that’s it…
2. When getting ready for church and you’re late- (hey- myself, 3 kids, & a husband to wake, feed, & get ready in the morning—if you have it figured out please drop me a line) -it makes no sense to have an attitude when other adults in the house are dragging behind and you have to be on-time for nursery duty… I had a bit of a bad attitude and it didn’t pay off one bit- with my hurrying and snippy-ness I ended up dropping an entire bottle of red wine vinegar in the kitchen, shattering it & splattering it all over myself and the rest of the house… not helping us on time at all, and in the end I felt bad and had to say I was sorry about the attitude anyway. Got to church at an OK time (not on-time, but OK) and there were no babies in the nursery yet anyway.
Learned to think of the big picture: rushing like a mad-woman, Mrs. Snippy Snappy to hubby & kids, all just to be a “good” Christian servant and on-time for the nursery? Sometimes our priorities do get a little skewed.
That was my teachable moment in all its vinegary goodness. Have a very happy Monday!
