Fishpond orders that never arrive
Finishing the fifth book in a series... when the sixth book isn't written yet
Chores that won't stay done
A vacuum cleaner with no suck
Endless Dust bunnies
Endless School holidays
Nits on kids... again
Fleas on Cats...
Fleas from Cats on kids...
Itchy bites, itchy hair
Endlessly zapping nits
Wet beds in the middle of the night
Washing piles that stink of kid-pee
Endless Washing piles
Waking up tired
Waking up with a headache
Waking up to endless complaints, Nits on kids and washing piles that stink of pee
But Still Grateful for...
Sunshine through my window
A house to keep
My trusty Nit Zapper
Eyes that can see the sunshine and read the books
Ears that can hear the complaints (even if I'd rather not)
Children to love (in spite of endless complaints)
School holidays (in spite of their endlessness)
Heroic Husbands who swoop in on their black chargers
and take complaining kids to the Park for a Picnic and Pies
Thankful for a new day
Breath in my lungs
Love in my heart and a life to live
in spite of all the mindnumbing drudgery
I still have a lot to be grateful for.
