The Gremlin Run!

I slept wonderfully last night!  I tried to stay up and have a late night party in the blog neighborhood, but not much luck with this time change.  Though, this morning?  The sun rose beautifully and blindingly in Farmer, Jr.'s room, where I fell out.  I checked my watch and it was barely six a.m.
Sweeeeeeeeeet!!  When I heard Lil'Gal's voice and Daddy in the kitchen I rolled out of bed feeling like I had rested until 8:00 a.m., but it was only 7:00.  Love it!
I walked happily into the main room and ACK!!  The Gremlins!  And, as I approached the kitchen Double ACK!!  They hit there too!  I went to the laundry room to escape and catch my breath only to find that they scrambled the laundry!  I had one tiny wee-little basket last night of the mix-matches that don't make a whole load.
This morning?  Three loads to wash and four to be folded!  How does this happen?
They got me too.  I'm totally disheveled and in dire need of a shower.  Stupid Gremlins.
My FIL has a pest control business as a side line to the farm; and it also works with the farm.  I asked him if he had anything for Gremlins.  He said he used to but the government band it because it was too environmentally unstable.  He said I just have to let them run.  The Gremlins that is.
He did share some good news.  Apparently?  Gremlins run seasonally.  Meaning, every season of the year.  But, they tend to have cycled out about the time the children are off on their own or away at college.  He says he hardly ever has a Gremlin run at his house anymore.  The Clutter Monkey sometimes, but no Gremlins.
Hmmmmm.  This has me thinking about who these Gremlins really are.  It's no wonder I don't sleep well at night.   Who can sleep when the Gremlins are sneaking around wreaking havoc on your peaceful home.
Anyhow.  I have to go shower off the Gremlin dust.  And, sweep up their shedding from the floor.  And, then tend to the laundry they left strewn everywhere.
But, it's Saturday!  And, I feel great!  Gremlin dusty, but great!
Happy Saturday!  [Watch out for the Gremlins.]

Ha!! Gremlins, indeed! Give me about 4 days warning before you ever come to my house. It would take that long for me to catch them all and cage them up for your visit!

Hey, rocking cute bowl up there FW!
Glad you got some rest. Wanna fold some laundry over here later? We would be happy to share since you're an expert!

We've got some MAJOR Gremlins in our house. They seem to hit the hardest when I'm not feeling well (pretty sure it's a sinus infection).

Give me a few more days, and I'll be ready to kick some Gremlin butt!

I bet if I dropped off my laundry you wouldn't even notice the extra. Right? ;-)
