Lesson Learned

Don't throw nail clippers to the bottom of your purse.  You will lose a valuable layer of skin.

Always put pants on a baby who is taking "upper respiratory" antibiotics.

Music does not stop the crying of said baby, but rolling down the window makes a nice "white noise" sound to block it out.

*Hello blog friends! It has been, and will continue to be a busy time for me at the office.  Don't give up on me.  I will return regularly.
Is anyone watching Once Upon a Time? or Revenge? LOVE LOVE!!!

Day 12: [15 Day Challenge]




Day 12: Bullet your whole day.

Ok, I was DRAGGIN BUTT this Sunday, so this should be silly list.

  • 3 am: Wake up with hacking cough.  Go get water.  Peek outside front window.  Stray cat sleeping on front bench.  How sweet.  Oops! I woke it up.  Tip Toe back to bed.  Don't wake Callen.
  • 6 am: Wake up with pounding headache and burning sensation in throat from Cajun Crawfish boil at the Schroeder's last night.  Go back to sleep.
  • 730(ish) am: Poke husband in side when Callen wakes up.  Stay in bed. Oh the horror from the headache. 
  • 8:30 am: Arise from morning slumber.  Stumble down hallway to.  The boys are the in the kitchen.  Ryan is making breakfast.  This is great.  Make a cup of coffee.  Oh, the sweet coffee.  
  • 8:45 am: Sit at the table.  Close eyes. Why are they talking so loud?  Dogs barking? Why do I have dogs? They are so LOUD!
  • 9:00 am:  Sit down to eat turkey sausage and eggs.  Take pain meds and happy pills.  Oh, I need the happy pills.  Give dogs heartworm pills hidden in turkey sausage.  Laugh (quietly) at Callen putting eggs in his hair.  
  • 10:15 am:  All three get ready for church.  This is Callen's first day in the nursery.  Make sure his outfit is cute.
  • 10:20 am: Brush and pin hair up so that it doesn't look like I was at a party last night.  Use fancy Benefit eye pencil thing to look awake.   Brush teeth. Sad. No more coffee.  I am too old for parties.  Why did I go again? Oh, Kyle's birthday. Man, we are old.
  • 10:23 am: Mad dash for church. Why are we always so late?  
  • 10:40 am:  Follow maze to underground where nursery is.  Sign paperwork.  Drop sad faced child off in his mobility appropriate room.
  • 10:49 am:  Follow maze back above ground to sanctuary.  Services start at 10:50.
  • 10:54 am:  Find a seat, during worship music.  SQUEEZE by.
  • 11:55 am: Take maze back to nursery.  Pick up happy child.  First day, CHECK.
  • 12:00 pm:  Hungry.  Tired.  Drive.  Home.  Fast.
  • 12:30 pm: Put pajamas back on.  Carve a spot on the sofa.  Wait, I was hungry.  Eehhh... I'm comfy.
  • 1:00 pm:  Eat celery and peanut butter.  Easy.  Back to sofa lounging.  My head hurts again.
  • 1:45 pm:  Callen is overdue for a nap.  Work this out.
  • 2:30 pm: Callen down for a nap.  I'm down for a nap. 
  • 5:30 pm:  Whoa, what day is it?  Stumble down hallway.  Am I still in Oz?
  • 5:45 pm:  Guess its time to make dinner.  Go to the kitchen.  Feed animals.  Get out fruits and such for Callen.  Put away clean dishes.  Put in dirty dishes.  Move laundry from washer to dryer.  Start washer for new load.  Start dinner.  Go get clothes for new load.  Start new load.  Finish up dinner.
  • 6:30 pm:  Eat dinner.  
  • 6:50 pm: Callen in swing outside.  Water lantana
  • 7:15 pm: Back on sofa.  That was a rough hour and a half. Callen play.
  • 7:30 pm: Crap.  I need to check the DVR queue for this week for conflicts.  My head hurts. I don't wanna.  
  • 8:00 pm:  Callen bathtime.  Thank goodness daddy can do it.  I'm still on the sofa.
  • 8:15 pm:  Sad I'm missing bathtime.  Get butt off sofa.
  • 8:30 pm:  Daddy in shower.  Mama and Callen watching TV having a bottle.
  • 9:00 pm: Callen in bed.  Pull out the Nook COLOR and read some of I Don't Know How She Does It.   I tell you how she does it... She doesn't go to a Windthorst Party and then expect to function the next day.... that's how. 
  • 10:00 pm:  Sleepy time.  I took a 3 hour nap today.  No sleepy time.
  • 12:00 am: Are you kidding me? Am I still awake? 
By the way, this is what my Lantana look like now!  I managed to keep them alive and they still bloomed through the WORST SUMMER EVER.  I am very proud of myself. 

I keep rotating it, but it keeps going back.. Just turn your head 90 degrees to the right.
