You know it's going to be one of those Sundays when it rained the two days before, so you haven't been able to do the laundry (line drying), it's going to rain again today (so you will do the laundry and try to hang it indoors as best you can, which means smaller loads and other problems), someone left the kitten food out the night before and the adult cats gorged themselves on it and got sick, #2 Son is sleeping on the couch with a barf bucket next to him, you have Sunday School to teach and have to get one kid to the church an hour ahead of everyone else because she has to be there to run the pro-presenter for the service, the dishwasher is running already after you got up to find the family raided the kitchen half the night, and it is only5am.
