Sigh….how is it Monday again already? I swear I just sat down to type a round of confessions, yesterday! I hear it’s a holiday but factoring in the amount of crazy humans packed into the grocery store today I can only assume a Zombie Apocalypse is coming. Apparently, zucchini is the number one weapon to use since two stores were completely wiped out. I immediately rushed home and checked my fridge to see if a miracle had occurred and I had any left over. Thank the stars I do in fact have one zucchini left so am well prepared for any attack. I hope it will help protect me and my offspring from eminent threat.
Meanwhile, yesterday we went to the “Discovery Center” which is basically a really small version of a big city’s science museum. It includes some interactive things and games, but mostly a bunch of things that aren’t conducive to toddlers. I spent more time keeping Boden from throwing wooden balls at peoples heads, grabbing him off the simulated tornado exhibit and making sure he didn’t fall down the stairs that seemed to keep appearing out of nowhere. I’ll confess, it was about as fun as a root canal and I felt like a horrid mother for thinking that. In my very poor defense I was exhausted…still am… and was considering climbing into the giant mouth exhibit and taking a nap. Every time I tried to read a fact about torque and velocity I felt my eyes literally closing and thought I may just succumb to zzz’s right there on the concrete floor. I even snuck in coffee and pretended I couldn’t read the 25 signs saying “NO food or drink” but alas even that didn’t pep me up. Sigh…please tell me some of you don’t always enjoy mom stuff.
I ran out of diapers the other day. I swore I had more in the closet but alas I go to find them and bam…they have evaporated into thin air. Most probably would have panicked but I just grabbed one of Gavins pull ups and somehow rigged it up to fit Boden’s little booty. It took me 2 days to actually leave the house and get diapers. I’m pretty sure something might be wrong with me. bahahahaha. Funny thing is Gavin is using a package of hand me down pull ups from the only cousins he has..which are of the female variety. So I’ve had two boys running around with pink zebras on their little jewels. Dying!
I have spent a ridiculous amount of time looking for luggage for my upcoming trip to Michigan. My one suitcase is broken and so I need a new one and dear lord are there some ridiculous options. While it has kept me entertained at 2 am for a couple of weeks now, I am very much looking forward to finding a freaking suitcase so I can stop reading about weight, height and expandable zippers. Seriously, I never though this would be this difficult. I will confess I don’t do carry ons because the thought of having to haul the thing above my head into the compartment while everyone is impatiently waiting for me to move, sounds like a horrifying experience. I also picture me trying to beat the dumb thing into the compartment while my big butt jiggles in some old mans face as he sits in his seat. I’ll just avoid the whole embarrassing scenario and check my bag. Besides, with it being cold I’ll need bulky things anyway…or so I tell myself. If anyone has any luggage recommendations please send them my way. My eyes are about to bleed.
Speaking of trips, my countdown has begun, since today marks one month till I get to leave MO for a few days. Normally, I’d be a little more apprehensive about leaving the kids with school and their activities but this time I’m like “See ya later, alligator.” I am ready for a break and I know they will all survive just fine without me. Probably won’t even notice I’m gone. The older I get and the more children that inhabit my living quarters, I realize that taking time to yourself and to do those things you want to do is so important. My kids will leave me someday and I really don’t want to have spent an entire lifetime dedicated to them and forgetting about myself. I’ll miss them terribly but am having zero guilt about leaving for a few days…..course that may come the closer I get. haha.
Someone is having a meltdown and begging for Craisins. The other has ran off with my overpriced coffee and is sure to either spill it or start acting like a kid at a rave from the caffeine kick. Must go adult now. Hope you had amazing weekends and see you soon!!
