Some days Friday feels more like a Monday…

Kiddo woke up before I did and I was still groggy and hadn’t gotten much sleep.  I’d been up way too late again- I haven’t been able to fall asleep well since John died and I’m a night owl.  So, I usually let kiddo get up before me and go get himself some yogurt, play, or watch DVDs.  Today, I was exhausted!  So, I let him go.

I was jolted to consciousness by the sounds of kiddo running across the floor followed by ticking nails of the not really housebroken Beagle dog.  UGH!  Kiddo and Gadget had played like this earlier this week and all had been fine, but I hurried to get to him, so I could get him outside.

I stumbled downstairs to find out from kiddo that “Gadget had to go potty, so he just used the floor.”

I will give kiddo credit, he did put paper towels on top of the mess, or as he said, “I cleaned it up!” and at least Gadget just peed right on the floor without lifting his leg on something. Some days, it’s the little things…

Happy Friday, everybody!

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
