~ A supposed law of nature, expressed in various humorous popular sayings, to the effect that anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
Apparently ‘Murphy‘ was an America aerospace engineer who didn’t like all the more jokey interpretations of his ‘law’… which figures. My father is (was?) and aerospace engineer and they are not known for their sense of humour when it comes to technical theories and the like. But I’m going to offend poor old Murphy one more time because I’ve had one of those weeks, when anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
Here’s how Murphy’s law worked out for me this week…
If you leave even one chair down, the Smallest will climb onto the table.
When you draw a line in the sand and say no more obligations or work until after Christmas, the coolest opportunities will fall into your lap to tempt you to cross that line.
If you really need just a half hour of peace to finish something important, the baby will only sleep for ten minutes.
It is insane to consider letting your eight year olds take a third dance class, but you’ll spend way to much time thinking about how you can fit it in anyway.
When you finally buy seedlings for the veggie garden it will rain, and rain, and rain so much that there is no chance to actually plant them.
It can be sunny all day, but if the forecast says rain, it will always rain at school pick up time.
The day you give in and agree to your four year old having a green, sprinkle covered, dinosaur doughnut after doing the shopping, is the day that they have sold out.
When you promise the big kids 30 minutes of internet time to play Math Blaster, the wireless connection will be so flaky it takes 30 minutes just to load the game.
So how has Murphy been treating you lately?
