I know that's not the most creative title to have ever been used on a blog but I'm too tired to come up with anything else. Besides, it's true.

I started out the day a little later than normal so I didn't have time to make coffee. I'd have been up at a decent time but staying up late last night to watch House did me in. I stopped at the convenience store by work to get some coffee and just couldn't pass up the white chocolate flavored cappucino. At least I wasn't completely a bad girl and I mixed it 50-50 with plain coffee. I still paid the price for too much sugar and didn't feel at the top of my game for most of the day.

I got to work and found out we're twice as far behind as we were last week so we're once again on 8 hours of overtime. Ugh! I'm already tired. How am I going to find the energy to fit in another 8 hours?

Adding to this, Gooey's been sick for 2 weeks with a cold and as soon as it begins to go away, it comes back full force. Today, it came back with a vengeance. Runny nose, terrible cough, and just sheer crabbiness is how it's been with this poor kid for weeks. He's barely eaten anything for 4 days. I sent Daddeee to the store (in truth, he volunteered) to get Pediasure so that at least some vitamins get into the child, and he comes back with gatorade. What? Gatorade for a 2 year old? He says the Pediasure was too expensive. He doesn't know it yet, but he's going back to the store for Pediasure. Hey he volunteered, didn't he?

I also had every intention of posting a meatloaf recipe with pictures to my blog today. It was going to be Monday Meatloaf but when I got home from work, one of my neighbors was outside dealing with drama with a neighborhood child. I feel so sorry for the kid. The mom's rarely home and he's left with his 14 yr old sister. When he got home from school today, his sister was no where to be found so he was home alone....he's only a kindergartener. We made a call to the school counselor to find out what our options are. Maybe the mom just needs a wake up call.

So the meatloaf was quickly put together and thrown into the oven without it's photo session. Maybe next Monday.

So now that dinner's all done, I'd normally sit down to watch my favorite Monday night TV shows but because of this writer's strike I have nothing to watch.

I guess I could just call it an early evening and go to bed. What an exciting life I lead.

Aww, I'm sorry your Monday was so crappy! I hope your Tuesday was much better! Hoping Gooey gets to feeling better soon! Sick kids & crappy Monday's are no good.
