Due to a series of extensive house and yard projects that are languishing in various stages of incompletion, time got away from me this past week. Happily, there's always time to report on your week if you do it in rapid-fire, headline-style fashion. Last week on the Pink Dryer Lint Facebook page, I posted this prompt: Tell me about your week in headline style.
I asked. You responded. Here's a brief recap of my week -- and some of the funniest headlines that you left in FB comments:
Mom gets seven hours of sleep, still wants nap.
Woman leaves dinner dishes on table overnight, regret follows in morning.
Despite 50/50 chance, toddler puts shoes on wrong feet 75% of the time.
Child asks "What can I do?" 23 times in one afternoon, mother develops eye twitch.
New household record: only 7 Cheerios discovered stuck to kitchen floor after breakfast.
Toddler still newly potty-trained, mother nearly demolishes endcap display with cart en route to Target restroom.
Mom too tired to go buy bread, gives daughter cake in lunch instead of sandwich. (Lisa Polley)

Now it's your turn. Would you tell me about your week in headline-format?
