Here we are…the dawn of a new day…my dog “the pug” as the boys call her snoring away…and it is time for CNN and MC to head back to school. The winter break wasn’t as long and awful as I was worried it would be! There were no play dates or big adventures, except when they all took their matresses off their beds and lined them up down the hallway…I guess that was kind of an adventure…total blast all day…I was thinking, “what a cool mom I am…my mom never would have let me do this!” and then I realized, “what a boring kid I was, I never would have thought to do this…my kids are awesome!”.
Anyhoo, it all went really pretty well(except for this moment where I just happened to have been distracted and was still in my robe at 11 which freaked me out a bit and I had to let the dogs out to do the pee pee and while they were out and roaming over near our neighbors, our neighbor came home and I didn’t want a crazy dog scene and I sure didn’t want to say have a great lunch in my ROBE, so I motioned the lab in the house and he came in – I know Mr.Z’s dog listens better than mine, but people the pug is deaf now and when she could hear she didn’t listen so whatever – I was trying to get her and CNN shouts that I need to come quick and pull the boys apart because they are fighting and biting…so I leave my deaf pug dog to fend for herself with the neighbor and put the boys in their rooms grumbling about the stupidity of biting over a shirt(they are only 14 months apart and I fear this deal might just get worse) and then jump into some clothes and go out to grab the deaf pug…only I don’t see her…anywhere…so I head to the back and just as I’m on my way down the hill I notice her little self POOPING in front of said neighbor’s bushes…ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? so I scoop up my damn deaf pug and take her home and get a bag and tromp back out threatening the boys about moving or hurting each other and go get the poop and get back in just in time to fall in a chair and shake my head!). So yeah, just one adventure or two really…
So today we’ll begin the driving adventures again…MWF drop off in the am, pick up at lunch, and pick up at 3..TR two am drop offs, two lunch pick ups, and a pick up at three…with all this driving I do love the Rover beast when it is working…it’s fun to drive, creaking and all so we just turn up the radio and move on down the road. There has only been a child left behind once and it wasn’t my pick up day – that’s all I’m sayin…
I’ve accidentally done a lot of test driving this fall…let’s see…each time there is an oil change or repair…so there have been 3 mercedes, 1 ford Flex (decked out! people stared and the kids had a blast – this one was for a week when my neighbor and also my insurance agent backed into me in the Rover beast), 1 jag(MC asked if we could keep it – the kid knows his cars), and 1 Dodge van…it got to the point that the kindergarten moms would just shake their heads and laugh when I’d poke my head out of yet another car that was not familiar!
Time to switch gears and get the kids stuff all lined up I guess(I know…many of you non procrastinators did that two days ago – there is comfort for me in knowing that if I did it two days ago someone would have moved it by now!)…I did make some serious laundry progress when my name wasn’t bellered as I stepped into the laundry room – every trip down takes about three tries because there’s some emergency somewhere!
May your commutes today be accident free, coffee spill free, and full of mind blowing music!
