Why This May be a part of my Night:
5:45-Leah wakes up from a dream. Consequently, Miss C wakes up as well. I decide I will just get up. Thankfully, the two go back to sleep.
5:50-Weigh myself, and discover I lost 2 more pounds! Think that this has got to be a great day if it starts like this!
8:30-Drop Leah off for her 2nd day of kindergarten.
9:00-11:00-Do some work, discover Mr. C & Miss C have emptied a Carmex container and written with marker all over themselves.
11:00-Try to do dishes, as my dishwasher is not working.
11:03-Discover the C's in a bedroom with diaper cream (retrieved from the top shelf of a closet) spread all over themselves, their clothes, the bed, and the carpet.
11:15-Clean the kids up, and get them in the car to get out of the house.
11:30-Discover I have forgotton my purse at home, and realize there is something in there I need.
11:31-Turn the van around, go back home.
11:45-Retrieve purse, head out again.
12:00-Order two hamburgers from Sonic for the kids, ketchup only. Receive two hamburgers with everything BUT ketchup.
1:30-Return home. NAP TIME!!!
2:30-Receive long-awaited package from Amazon in the mail. Open it, and find $120 worth of Wii games. Weird, since we ordered two books. And we don't have a Wii. Checked the packing slip, realized it belonged to a neighbor two streets over.
3:00-Throw a load of laundry in. I have to do SOMETHING productive today!
3:15-Get kids up, leave to pick Leah up from school.
3:20-Sit in very long car line, and watch my gas tank slowly empty. It flat lines. I start praying. All I need is to hold up a whole line of cars by running out of gas.
3:30-Make it to the school, get Leah! Now to get gas!
3:33-Nearly get hit head on by three teenage girls racing through the neighborhood. I blared my horn, and they blared something else. I felt very old.
3:40-Find the gas station, only to discover that every other pump is out of order. I wait, and am impressed by my van's ability to keep chugging along.
3:43-Finally get gas!
3:55-Stop by neighbor's to drop her Wii games off. She wasn't home, but on her front porch was OUR Amazon box. Weird. So I made the exchange and went home.
4:00-Open the washing machine to put the laundry in the dryer, discover that I washed the clothes with a paper grocery bag. Brown paper residue and chunks COVERED the clothes and the washing machine. Lovely.
4:01-4:45-3 time outs and a white flag of surrender later, Mike finally comes home!
6:00-Suppertime. Surprisingly enough, fairly uneventful!
6:30-Mike fixes dishwasher. Things seem to be coming back to some state of normalcy.
6:39-I finish the blog post. Showers are next, followed by an early bedtime. You know what comes after that. :)
Here's to a more relaxing tomorrow!
