I wanted to share a post today, but my day did not go as planned. I busted my booty cleaning this house for people to come in and look at it today. I am very happy with the progress I made and I am now way ahead of schedule. I will not be slacking by any means. There is still plenty of work to do – it is nice to have a little breathing room though. There were two appointments one at 11:30 am and one at 1:00 pm.
We made plans to go to the park with the neighbors for a little while.
Then, I was going to drop the kids off at my mom’s so I could have a little time to myself. Well… it started pouring down rain and we had to cancel the park. Change of plans – I took David to the coffee shop for him to work, and the kids and I went to mom’s. I decided to go to the store for a little bit to get some birthday items for Joshua’s early birthday party next week. I went to Wal-Mart, and wished I had not.
However, it was the only place that carried what I needed.
I left frustrated and overloaded, but surprisingly calm. I think it was the drive I took on the island listening to music before I ventured back to go to the store. Another tidbit is that I was calm driving in the pouring down rain, I could barely see and was not a nervous wreck. Strange. (Oh, the CD player in the car is now broken… not happy about that.) Come to think of it I had to go to two other stores first thing this morning as well, but felt calm. Hmm… Good for me! (Maybe it was all that bleach I used to clean.)
It was around 1:15 pm so I decided to go get David to take him home.
When I arrived he seemed not too pleased – apparently, he tried to call me and texted me several times to let me know that the people who were supposed to be there at 1:00 pm rescheduled for 2:00 pm. Oops! My bad! I must have turned my ringer down or something because I was completely unaware.
Since I was already there we decided to go to mom’s and wait.
The people never came. All of the kids are out of sorts because of everything I have been doing this week. David cleaned his upstairs and the gate was off which means that the new obsession has been climbing stairs. The kids going upstairs – change. Me not doing our normal schedule - change. We had our day changed on us a few times today and with the anticipation of moving, meltdowns have been waiting – just bubbling at each second.
Yeppers, poor Daniel lost it at Grammy’s.
It took about half an hour to finally get out of there. I had to sit in the back with him, after I finally got him in the car. We got home and it started again. Ariel and Joshua have had their meltdowns today as well. I have been bracing myself for them. Overall, I am amazed that it took this long. Things are settled now, but I am sure there may be a couple more waiting to come out. I am really amazed that I haven’t had one.
I almost had one yesterday.
I was cleaning the refrigerator and threw a bottle of soy sauce away. I despise the smell, feel, and look of soy sauce. The bottle shattered, but I didn’t know it until I picked up the garbage bag and saw brown liquid on the floor. However, before I realized what it was it got on my hands and I stepped in it! BLAH! I started yelling “Oh, God! Oh, my God!” while flapping my hands and making a mad dash to the sink. Soy sauce makes your hands smell and it’s sticky! The kids thought I was hilarious. Daniel started to laughing and then, imitating me yelling the same thing. Lol!
I told him not to say that, I shouldn’t have yelled that.
I was seriously overloaded though. I had been using cleaning supplies and touching cold things so the soy sauce sent me over. I was able to snap out of it quickly because the kids made me laugh so hard by asking me why soy sauce makes me freak out. (giggles) I think I am not going to do anything tomorrow. I will pile on my 50 million blankets – stay curled in bed, and cover my ears with pillows. Yeah, that is not going to happen. What a grand fantasy….
I wanted to post something from my drafts tonight.
I currently have 134 drafts. I started to go through them and found my titles to be very amusing. While I scanned through them, I decided that I was not in the mood to edit or post any of them. Instead, I decided to list the first twenty titles and share them because they may make some people laugh. We can laugh together. I am also sharing some pictures because I think that they are pretty and others may enjoy them too. I might have shared some of these before I can’t remember tonight.
So ta-da! Here are some post titles waiting to be edited!
