Is it too much to ask...

As a parent, I'm pretty laid back.
I expect my kids to do their chores.
I expect them to do their homework.
I expect them to throw their dirty clothes down the laundry chute.
I expect them to throw the food containers that they've emptied into the recycling bin so that come Monday morning, when I attempt to make lunches, I don't discover that there's NO LUNCH FOOD.

This is what happened this morning. Needless to say, I was pissed. Not surprised...just pissed. This discovery required a trip to 7-11 where I had the high point of my morning.

Cashier One: "That'll be $7.11."
Cashier Two: "Oohh...that's not a good sign."
Me: "It just means the apocalypse is coming today."
Cashier One: "We'll still be open."

I heart Cashier One...he makes me laugh.

In other news, I finally got my first review for Ronan's Grail!!!! I got four and a half lips from Two Lips reviews - here's what the reviewer had to say.

Torrid Tarot: Ronan’s Grail is a gripping and tender love story. Bronwyn Green does a magnificent job in creating this time travel quest. I loved Ronan; he was strong and confident but didn’t miss a beat when he was thrown into an unknown time. Morgan was a little headstrong but eventually allowed herself to feel. The passion between the two was heated and intense. This is a fantastic book.

Here's the rest of the review if you feel like checking it out.

Squeeeee! I love the review! It's about time, too. I loved that book the best of all. I want to marry Ronan.

And if that conversation with the cashier at 7-11 isn't material, I don't know what is. LOLOLOL.

I am sure you really actually deserve five full lips but still...who can argue with four and a half lips?...even if it does give me an odd mental picture.

I like your conversation with the cashiers. Makes me think of clerks.

And yes. To answer your question at the beginning of the blog. YES. IT IS TOO MUCH TO ASK. Trust me. I know.

Congrats on the well deserved review.

a well repeated favorite phrase - I love my children. I love my children. I love my children. I promise not to throttle them. :)
