Today was not one of those. Rosie and I woke up really late only to discover Bill, Theo and the dog MIA. My head ached terribly, so I talked Rosie into going for a run. When we got home Bill was already at his computer. While I felt much better, nobody had eaten any breakfast and the house looked like a tornado hit sometime in the night.
I thought I'd be clever and set Theo up with a history lecture while I got myself cleaned up so we could jump start our day. Rosie occupied herself with an art project. One lecture turned into to two and still no-one had eaten, craft supplies littered what tiny part of the floor was previously visible and everyone was grumpy.
After a few deep breaths, I convinced everyone to eat a big snack, do a 15 minute clean up and watch a language video. So, now it is noon and we've finally achieved our normal 8:30 state. I'm ready for a nap.
