What A Way To Start The Week!

Today started badly. I went to bed late last night thus I got up late this morning. Big Surprise. Then I went to wake up the girls but they were already awake - half-dressed and fighting. The morning routine turned into a yelling match between the three of us. Them yelling at each other. Me yelling at them trying to get them to stop yelling (counter-productive I know) and get ready for school.

Then they did this at breakfast:

They propped up the place mats so they wouldn't have to look at one another.

Which upset me even more.

Which made me go hide and get on this:

Which breaks the only resolution I've kept 100% since January 1st.

Resolutions broken this morning: 3/5. What a way to start the week.

I am so sorry, but I can't stop laughing. I think it is ingenious that your girls put up little dividers at the table!

But at least I saw you at the gym today working up a good sweat :) !! Hope your day went better!

(And I remember making dividers myself to hide behind while eating as a child!)

Hee hee. When I was a kid my siblings and I would build walls out of cereal boxes, milk jugs, anything we could find to keep the other person from looking at you.

And if it makes you feel any better, the day you just described was my daily routine the whole of 2008.
