Manic Monday

Remember that song from the Bangles?

Manic Monday....oooooooo...I wish it were Sunday....oooooo....That's my fun day...ooooooo...I don't have to run day....ooooooo.....Just another manic Monday

What lyrics. Gotta love the '80s. I'm a total Bangles fan. Bring on Eternal Flame any day.

Moving on, that is how my Monday felt. Get Jillian up. Go to work. Work, work, work. Go home. Take catnap with Jillian (okay that part wasn't manic). Start laundry. Make dinner. Now it is bathtime. I'm sitting in the bathroom blogging while Jillian takes her bath. Such a responsible parent, I know.

My busy Monday made me feel a little jealous when I heard that Jeramy and Jillian met up with friends Clint and Dakota this morning at McDonalds. A daddy playdate, I joked to him. I guess some old ladies thought it was just wonderful that daddies were staying home with their babies. It probably wasn't such a common sight in their generation. Clint's wife Amy told me all about how he said that being a stay-at-home daddy is the new "thing". I was just happy that Jeramy was able to get so many errands done today so that I don't have to on the weekend.

My Saturday was super busy because I decided to have a last minute BBQ for my friend's birthday. That meant cleaning. I usually do most of my housework on the weekends, but having people over always provides extra motivation. My mother's housekeeping philosophy was to keep the front room clean and then ONLY clean the rest of the house if guests were coming over. The problem was that they only hosted gatherings about once or twice per year. I figure if I can just have people over every month or so, I can keep my home much cleaner.

Sunday was nice and relaxing. Jillian and I met up with Sunny and Danny for cupcakes at Common Ground. I was thoroughly impressed with the cupcakes. Of course, it's not like there is such a thing as a bad cupcake after all. I got some cute pics of Jillian and Danny that I'll have to post later. But unfortunately I have to run now as Jillian's attitude is starting to indicate that bathtime is now over.

Oh I love the Bangles!! Especially Eternal Flame:)

Hopefully your week will slow down a little so you can catch up on some R&R... and maybe some more of those cupcakes;)

When I was a pre-teen, I used to play Eternal Flame over and over and sing my heart out to it every time. I fancied myself quite the rock star. haha.

Manic Monday was one of my first records. Can you believe it? RECORD!! I think I still have it and Thriller stuffed in a closet somewhere.

I had a friend in high school who was OBSESSED with Eternal Flame. She and I and two other friends dressed up as The Bangles for Halloween one year. She had a tape of that song playing in her backpack.

Those cupcakes were great, weren't they? DH loved his Boston Creme Pie... he gave me a bite and it was fantastic! Next time (because there WILL be a next time) :) I might try that one. Hope Jeramy liked his pink fluffy one. ;)

Admittedly both songs are on my ipod...

Jeramy said...

What the hell? Why did I get a pink fluffy cupcake when I could of had Boston Creme Pie?

Walk like an Egyptian, baby! (And yeah, my very first record was The Bangles, too.)
