"I'm pregnant" is a great excuse for most of my failures right now. Examples:
I DID make my children a non-cereal-based breakfast (fresh strawberries and milk) but totally let Bart put maple syrup in his bowl. Not good maple syrup either. Generic-brand, corn-syrup-based, regular ol' pancake syrup.
I have a meeting with a client and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to make it out of my pajamas.
There's a strand of Christmas lights that has blown off the top of the house that hangs attractively next to the front door. It's been that way for a week. It will probably stay that way until Christmas.
I'm sure I can think of many, many more... but right now I'm too tired.
