When your day starts at 2am you should just assume it is not going to be a good day.
This sweet innocent little kitty. He must have been possessed by some dark force, cause he was jumping out from under beds, throwing himself into doors to gain attention, and playing fetch with himself. Up the stairs, down the stairs, up the stairs, down the stairs. Two in the morning is too early for this kind of nonsense. I was not impressed. He knew it, he didn’t care. I think he was grinning at me. I might have said bad words.
I finally managed to ignore the crazy cat, and his one cat circus, and drift off to sleep until the alarm clock rudely told me it was time to GET UP. 4 1/2 hours sleep? Meh. Sleep is overrated anyway.
Poured the oh so nutritious cereal for my girls, added milk. It was sour. “Eww it stinks Mom.” The little girls felt the need to repeat this over and over and over. Why? Why must we repeat the same story over and over again. “Can you believe how bad that milk smelled?” “Oh Mom that milk was really stinky!” “..and then we poured the milk and it was bad!” I am a bad Mama, cause this morning, it just wasn’t cute. I just wanted to say “Shut up about the milk already!! By now even that stupid cat understands your milk was stinky this morning. It’s not that big a deal now Eat Your freakin Toast”. ..but I didn’t. I just
bit my tongue real hard nodded, smiled and begged for the coffee to be done faster.
SweetGirl is wearing the same orange sweatshirt for the third day this week. I was too tired to fight her on it. Quality parenting. I’m sure the Mommy gossip circle will have a field day with this one.
Get the kids off to school on time. Run around and get to the chiropractor. Barely make it there in time and he is running late? Love it. Even better, just noticed I have a hole in the bottom of my right sock. Classy.
While I’m sitting there notice my nails look really really bad. Like teenage nail biter bad. Attractive.
Run home after the appointment to throw on a quick coat of polish. Wave hands like a lunatic because clearly this will make the polish dry faster. Why the rush? Cause now I have to pee. Like right now. Can’t wait. Try to undo fancy belt without touching it with my nails. FAIL. Fancy manicure ruined, belt has addition of silver/grey polish, but bladder is so much happier.
Re-do chunked up nails. Look at clock. Crap! Must be at the school in 5 minutes to help serve hot lunch to my daughters class. Jet.
Miracle. Make it on time. Put on the latex gloves and serve up chicken nuggets all hot lunch lady style. Get a hug from my sweetie and clean up. Make a discovery. You know what does not mix? Freshly painted nails and latex gloves. Take gloves off..most of re-done manicure is left behind in the gloves. Sexy.
Grab a coffee at McDonalds on the way home (such great coffee there) Promptly spill it all over myself.
Is this day over yet?
Will hide at home until the sun goes down.
Go upstairs and notice sink has a fancy new drip.
Repair estimate for SUV that was stuck in the snow is in. $1200.00. Well that’s fabulous.
Discover crazy cat has chewed a hole in the GIANT bag of cat food and spilled it all over the poker table. Just leave the mess where it is. Don’t judge me. I’m tired remember?
…now I have a headache.
I surrender. Not the worst day in the Suburbs, but certainly not the best. Think I should have just stayed in bed. Going there now.
