So I decided that you can’t count holidays as Mondays, even when they fall on a Monday!
Yesterday was all about goofing off… I wish I would have had a better attitude, but I felt so lousy! I woke up with a headache and it never really went away. And the thrill of being out of school, added to the energy level and it’s ensuing chaos! There was no way Capri could nap cause she could just sense the excitement! My poor cleaning lady I am sure was freaking out as all the kids were running in and out and all around… I think that there may have even been a scooter shortcut created from the backdoor through the hallways to the garage door at one point.. but it was kind of a blur! I had to get the kids out of the house. So we all loaded up and went to see a movie. The goal was to see Eragon at 1:55. We got there at like 1:45 after parking a mile or so away… only to get in and have the movie SOLD OUT. I wanted to die. I still couldn’t go home, and I couldn’t gear myself up for chucky cheeses or anything like that… so we killed time until the next showing by going to eric’s warehouse and letting the kids run and run and play hide and seek in there. SO we head back to the theater, and this time I don’t want to risk it so we get there and HOUR early. (I know- I am insane; mind you I did leave Capri with Emily, so she could at least take a nap!) and we buy treats to pass the time… all the kids go in the theater to save seats and I am left trying to carry all the stuff… which included 4 icees. I got all the way to the theater… and right inside the door, I dropped it all… splattering blue icee from here to next week. NIGHTMARE. I was SO over it. and I think there was like still 45 minutes until the movie even started!
After that, the kids were REALLY well behaved. They felt really bad. LOL. Quincy kept telling me “mom, I feel really bad we didn’t help you”…
I said the “h” word. Cory keeps reminding me.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed the movie. I want to be a dragon rider.
So, I am claiming today as an honorary Monday.
I have done 4 loads of wash.
Planned some meals.
Changed some sheets.
Completed work for a deadline.
Paid bills online
And now I have to go workout.
But I think I am still recovering from the icee incident.
