Mommy's Zen 2020-03-something

Image may contain: indoor
Usually I only fill that with wine to the bottom of JUICE. Maybe the top of JUICE on a bad day.
Tonight it was full.
I'm not sure that I will leave the tub in a graceful manner.
I know that I will not leave the tub on a graceful manner.
I'll be lucky to make it to the bedroom without embarrassing myself.
EDIT to add:
Omigod I just sat up to scrub the pits. Never mind getting to the bedroom. At all, embarrassment or no.
I'm going to be lucky to get out of the tub. At. All.
Contemplating sleeping in it. Will have to warm the water shortly.
Hubby will be up soon for his midnight shift. Might be safer to wait.

Random Thoughts 2020-03-28

I made a quadruple batch of banana muffins yesterday. With chocolate chips. Got 3 dozen muffins and 1 loaf. 1/2 of the loaf remains.

I'm blaming my mood on PMS, but really it's the stress of trying to keep my kids quiet while Hubby sleeps. He's working nights so that people have shelves full of food to buy.

I think that if my kids were in The Quiet Place, they would die fairly quickly.

Captain's Log 2020-03-27

Captain's log, Spring Break Day 10/10.
Got up. Went pee. Stared at a Giant Black Spider in the bathtub. 
Worked out. Canine 2 very upset that she was jailed at the time.
Decided not to make coffee because I wanted to spike it, and I actually have to drive to the office today.
Went to shower. Spider still there. Smelled armpits. Good. God.
Fed Canines instead. Called in Feline from his hunting trip. He came back empty-handed, but didn't eat much, so apparently he self-supplied. Selfish.
It rained on the spider, and it floated down the drain.
Showered, dressed, etc. Checked to see if spider was still gone. 
Told myself that I can abstain from spiking coffee.
Made coffee.
Texted Supply Officer a shopping list. Essentials only: milk, crackers, furnace filters.
Made banana-chocolate-chip muffins. Wondered if maybe there is such a thing as too much chocolate chips in a muffin. Not if you make chocolate banana muffins.
We are now out of chocolate chips. Texted Supply Officer.
Drank some coffee. 
Started Work-from-Home project.
Argued with Ensign #2 about whether Some Assembly Required is an acceptable show to watch for the 4th time through the series. Not sure why Ensign #2 is arguing with his Captain. Consequences incoming.
Re-analyzing decision to not spike coffee.
Fed both Ensigns muffins for breakfast. Tactical error.
Should have spiked the coffee. 4 hours should be long enough in between alcohol and driving, right?
Continued Work-from-Home project.
Still questioning decision to abstain from spiking coffee, but also not because alcohol and payroll probably wouldn't be an acceptable practice.
Currently eating lunch.
