locked in

wow! what a morning!
so far we have:
~found out we are "locked in". yes, dad, aka. my darling husband, God bless him for getting up at 4 am to go to work in the pouring rain, left with all three sets of house keys in his truck. so i am locked in this house with three very-anxious-to-go-out-and-play-in-the-puddles-boys.

~a badly cut finger. as they were going to surprise me with fresh-squeezed orange juice middle son cut his finger with a new knife that is very sharp. i know because i just cut myself the other nite. "can you just pretend you don't know what we were trying to do mom?" says my little guy." "just put super-glue on it so it stops bleeding," says oldest son. "that's what you'd have to do in the wilderness so you wouldn't bleed to death."

~someone changed the settings on my blog to enable the Hindi language, so every time i wrote something, these strangely beautiful letters kept appearing as my words disappeared and i couldn't figure out how to fix it.

~i am out of dish soap AND laundry soap and have no way to get 1) out of the house and 2) to the store AND you can imagine how much laundry there is and dishes to do, after all it is monday

~the dishwasher, the appliance, (not me), is still about penance, penance, penance.............

got to go.......i hear plans for a "great escape". something involving climbing out windows, bedsheets, extension cords, etc. they are letting the cats in through said windows right now.
i have to take this kind of thing seriously. oh the thinks they can think!!
