Did you ever just have one of those days? You know the kind, the sun is shining, the birds are singing and you get out of bed and trip? Yeah, that is the kind of day I am talking about. Yesterday was a holiday. No school. The only redeeming quality about this is being able to sleep in. After the day I had, sleeping in is entirely over rated.
Let's a play a little Status Quote here. This time with my own status updates:
1. "I am being lazy. I need a dose of ambition though." I was given a radioactive dose of ambition from a friend. I still feel shiny. It must have worked, because I finally took a shower, got dressed, and started a load of laundry. Of course by now it was 11:30.
I already promised a trip to the mall to the teen. Hey her babysitting money was burning a hole in her pocket. I had designs on making sugar cookies. I even bought cookie cutters. I really am not fond of the mall. IDEA! She can call a friend and go with her, while I run to Target and take the other two to the duck pond! I am so good I scare myself. Hmmm...maybe that radio active stuff was working after all. That or the second diet coke kicked in. After a trying lunch "break" we went were headed out for the first stop...the duck pond. (I will post pictures of this tomorrow) It was a bit chilly for us CA types. 50 degrees with a cool breeze. The ducks were not real hungry, but that didn't stop the kids from tossing bread. After the bread was gone, they went to the hill to roll down. As Emily slowly made her way down, a random child jumped over her. Yes. Jumped over her.
Next was Target. I bought a baby gift for my daughter's drama teacher plus a couple of other things I needed. And because the flesh is weak, a little toy for Ryan and Emily. Now this seems okay so far right? But every thirty seconds it's "Mama, Mama, Mom, Mom'" followed by, "No! Don't! Stop touching me!" Yeah that's always fun. And I was THAT mom. You know the one. "Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom,...." 'WHAT!?" Yeah.
Then as much as I wanted to go home, a promise is a promise. So off to the mall. It was crazy busy like at Christmas time. I just wanted to go home. More than once Ryan said, "Can we just go home?" Not because he was bored, but because it was too crowded and he doesn't do well with crowds. We got snagged by one of those kiosk people. For flat irons and curling irons. Yeah thanks, but I don't want your $129 flat iron.
Home...beautiful wonderful sweet and messy home! Who cares! I am home and I am done....
