It's a mom thing...

Monday, March 1, 2010

As you know, we have three cats and a dog. They know when it's time for their meals, and if I'm late with the food, they're very vocal about it. The cats will meow and the dog will whine until I finally get up and get their food.

Today was laundry day, and I had five loads of clothes to wash. The third load was in the dryer and I was working at my desk. I was in the middle of some fiendish html code and didn't want to stop, so when the clothes were dry and dryer buzzed, I ignored it. When it buzzed for the fourth time, I said (exasperation apparent in my voice), "Hush now, Mommy will get it in a minute."

Yeah. That's what I say to our pets when they're whining for food. It might have been my imagination, but I swear the cats were laughing at me. I'm just going to pretend it didn't happen.

It's Monday, right?

My husband just randomly said to me last night "So you talk to the appliances now?"...guess he read my blog. :-)
