Monday, Monday – Random Monday

Uggggh. Why are Mondays so Monday-ish?

Seriously, is it not enough that we have to stress over Swine Flu and Somali pirates? Must we really add to that teenagers that are overly tired and overly stimulated because they had prom and the Dave Matthews concert this weekend?

Tonight I’ll put some pictures of kids from the prom- because doesn’t everyone like to look at the newest prom fashions? I’ll tell you a funny story about two boys who are best friends and attended the prom together…as one another’s date…AS A JOKE…one in a powder blue tux and the other in a UT orange tux (again, that’d be Tennessee Orange, not Texas- Citrus, not Burnt). One of the funniest things I’ve seen the kids do in a while. I talked to their mammas right after presentation – they were both so proud.

But for now, I’m grumpy. I’m grumpy because the kids are grumpy, and they are grumpy because they are tired, and it’s beautiful outside, and all they want to do is lay in the grass and sleep.

Which makes me think about my dogs, who are currently at home in the grass asleep. I know this because I became quite accustomed to their schedule when I was home sick the last couple of weeks. If I were home today…I’d be right out there with them underneath the big Maple tree snoozing away listening to the windchime and the creek babbling.

But, I’m not…I’m at work…trying to spread salt and light to lemmings. And that’s okay I guess- but it makes me wonder sometimes how irritated Jesus must get with us when we’re moody like this. And then I get really scared to listen, because what if I actually did hear what he would say to me in that ugly moment of my life? Yikes.

So, I have to go adjust my attitude, fake it until I make it, plaster on a smile, or whatever you want to call it.

Looks like it’s time for big girl britches.

I’ll post Sunday Supper (belated and prom pics tonight!)

    Just found your blog and enjoyed reading. Good points and good sense of humor! I cringed with you at the post where your child told an inappropriate joke – mine like to pass gas in front of grandparents who DO NOT think body noises are all that hysterical! Have a great day.
