II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I am THAT somebody!

Does this sound familiar?
"Somebody needs to take out the trash."
"Somebody needs to fold the laundry."
"Somebody needs to scoop the dog poop."
"Somebody needs to call ___ about ____."
"Somebody needs to clean up this mess."
"Somebody took my stuff."
"I didn't do it, it was somebody else."
"Will somebody please turn that down?"

Ya, well, for once, I'd just like to be a nobody. Nobody has to do anything around here except for Somebody and I'm ready to retire from "somebody's" job. And by the way, "yah, somebody took your stuff--she also put it in your room where it goes until you leave it out again when somebody will have to pick it up again!"

So, so, so, true! On days where I'm about to have a meltdown I often say "who is taking care of ME?!" Grrr. Moms are definitely the glue ... but sometimes it would be nice if "SOMEBODY" was someone else!!

P.S. Mason didn't have to miss school after all. Thanks for asking about him. His fever broke the next morning and so I sent him. Perfect attendance still intact :)

P.S.S. He'll be sending something to Brooklyn VERY soon!

It is so true that "somebody" is "mom" 99% of the time, even in our house and I consider myself fairly well trained!

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. And, yes, I know people hate me for it. But Chuck really is good at sensing when I'm overloaded and taking some of that stuff on for me. I think I'm spoiled!!
