OH NO: Our TSS is SICK, SICK, SICK which means I have no extra help this weekend. I e-mailed The Best Babysitter in the World but didn’t hear back from her yet (I need to find her phone number). I’m thinking I’ll hire the teenager to help me at LEAST get some housework finished.
OH YES: The dog is fine (give or take a kidney tumor). I mean, she just eats stuff she shouldn’t, like DEAD VOLES, SNAKES AND FROGS. And rabbit poo. And Cujo’s food when he visits. Stoopid dog. Cost me $30 to find that out.
OH NO: I haven’t showered since Wednesday and it is now Friday. I should go do that right now. I just can’t get moving today. Even after the tea and breakfast.
OH YES: Today is Friday, which means the husband is home this weekend and we actually get to see him! Although I will only see him in the garage and cutting grass and fixing toilets.
OH NO: Bugaboo decided to have another part in the middle of the night last night, from 2:30 am to 5:30. I really wish he’d party by himself and not involve me. I am soooo not a night owl, even if he is.
OH YES: I can hand him over to the husband to take one of their “rides” and go to bed early tonight.
OH NO: The boy is already asking to play his DS this morning.
OH YES: The DS keeps him from freaking out on me and getting all OCD-like. And he doesn’t ask to watch tv. Win-win!
OH NO: I have abso-smurfly no motivation to cook this week. None. Nada. I hate food (can you BELIEVE that I am saying that?).
OH YES: I have veggies coming out my ears and food I can nuke.
OH NO: We leave for vacation in two weeks. I feel like I am not ready, even though I have TWO WEEKS TO PACK, PEOPLE.
OH YES: I still have TWO WEEKS TO PACK, PEOPLE.
OH NO: I am too tired to deal with my own kids today, y’all. Hormonal + lack of sleep + half-day for Bugaboo + feeling blah = Worst Mommy Ever
OH YES: At least one of them will play with the neighborhood kids today and I won’t see much of him while they make the “tallest popsicle stick tower in the world” and “grow our own rock crystals”. The other one? We’re going to his favorite stores to window shop while he holds his pack of m&ms in his hand.
OH NO: My parents are coming for lunch today.
OH YES: The never stay more than an hour, which is good, because the smell of Estee Lauder combined with cigarette smoke makes me want to vomit.
OH NO: My house is a mess
OH YES: I don’t care.
Happy Friday, y’all.
