Just another day in Paradise

Jeff could have written the lyrics to Phil Vassar's song, Just another day in paradise...after all, it is practically word for word about our life.

The kids screaming, phone ringing
Dog barking at the mailman bringing
That stack of bills - overdue
Good morning baby, how are you?
Got a half hour, quick shower
Take a drink of milk but the milk's gone sour
My funny face makes you laugh
Twist the top on and I put it back
There goes the washing machine
Baby, don't kick it.
I promise I'll fix it
Long about a million other things

Well, it's ok. It's so nice
It's just another day in paradise
Well, there's no place that
I'd rather be
Well, it's two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn't trade it for anything
And I ask the Lord every night
For just another day in paradise

Friday, you're late
Guess we'll never make our dinner date
At the restaurant you start to cry
Baby, we'll just improvise
Well, plan B looks like
Dominoes' pizza in the candle light
Then we'll tippy toe to our room
Make a little love that's overdue
But somebody had a bad dream
Mama and daddy
Can me and my teddy
Come in to sleep in between?

Yeah it's ok. It's so nice.
It's just another day in paradise.
Well, there's no place that
I'd rather be
Well, it's two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn't trade it for anything
And I ask the Lord every night
For just another day in paradise

Well, it's ok. It's so nice.
It's just another day in paradise.
Well, there's no place that
I'd rather be
Two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn't trade it for anything
And I ask the Lord every night
For just another day in paradise

For just another day in paradise
Well, it's the kids screaming. The phone ringing
Just another day
Well, it's Friday. You're late
Oh yeah, it's just another day in paradise


So just for shits and grins, Let's see how many references truly apply to us and our crazy life:
Kids screaming- check
Phone ringing- check
Overdue bills- check
Broken washing machine- check
Kids sleeping in between- check, check, check, check
Just another day in our paradise- check

Today was just another day in OP-Paradise...still in Overland Park, still enjoying high temps, sunny skies and playground action. Check out the compass and outside thermostat on my van: Headed west on 119th street, it was 66 degrees at 2:00 in the afternoon. Hard to believe it is January, but I am certainly not complaining! When you are trying to manage 3 three year olds, it really helps if you can take em outside and let em run and jump. Here they are reeking havoc on the playground.







Now why would I rush back to Columbus? Why? Why? Why Mommie, why?
