In the spirit of Murphy’s Law, here is “Smockity’s Law”:
On the morning you decide you will begin your new, rigorous homeschool schedule because all of the holidays, and weddings, and company have come and gone, the entire contents of the toilet tank will leak out onto the floor exceeding the bounds of the tile, thoroughly soaking the carpet.
And don’t forget about piano lessons.
And the baby just had a Scatter Poop.
And the dog just threw up.
Actually, that last part is completely fabricated, but I figured something like that is bound to happen at some point today, so I’m just leaving it in.
