Dude. I had so many big plans for today.
None of them were realized. It was a regular Monday gone bad. And Mondays aren’t usually my best day anyway.
And the big cherry on the top? Chris is working verrrry late. So no break, no respite in sight. It’s all me today, baby. And that just ain’t pretty.
I won’t bore you with all the details, but I will share a few of the days highlights:
I went to visit my new dentist, assuming I’d be able to cross “teeth cleaning” off my to-do list. Keep in mind, this requires fine tuning my schedule with my husband’s, so he can wrangle the littles. Evidently they don’t like patients to visit with four kids in tow.
Instead of getting anything actually accomplished, I was informed I needed to make two new appointments. And the dentist used the words “root canal” more than once.
Isabelle got in trouble at school today. I’m told by her teacher that she was trying to put her paper behind the heating system, and refused to listen when told several times to stop. When I explained that doing that is dangerous and might cause a fire, she said, “Oh.”
Dinner never seemed to materialize. Since it gets dark at approximately 3:45 around here as of late, I’m all out of whack. Once 5:00 hits, it feels like bedtime to me. I did manage a pot of Ramen. Dalton’s dinner consisted raw carrots and ranch. Asher managed two cheese sandwiches, that he made himself.
My chores didn’t even get done. The kitchen table is currently covered with partially folded laundry. The counters are covered with a mixture of clean and dirty dishes, all needing to be put somewhere. And me? I’m in here, not tackling any of it.
I even hoped to get the new Christmas shopping list updated and posted. You know, this one? You guys have added so many great ideas… it’s going to take me a while to get all those links included and organized.
But I will.
Tomorrow certainly has to be a better day.
