For making today SUPER crappy. Of course because since we got up before the alarm, we must not need coffee right?! WRONG. Coffee is the happy little fuel that keeps us chugging along and keep that smile on my face until at least 3pm, when I have another cup, which gets me through bedtime.
Oh no, not today. Today we left the house at 8am, stopped at the grocery store for those organic milk boxes (the kids love them as a treat and hey they're a buck each) as well as some baby treats for Adam to munch on. We had to go to the lab at the pediatrician's office today to redo his bloodwork. When they did his lead levels in February his platelets were very low and they wanted to resest. So he got poked, screamed, thrashed around and hated me for about 5 minutes.
Rough experience for us all, all three of us were crying by the time we were done. Adam for obvious reasons, me because I have to be the bad guy and hold him down and Hailey because she sat in the corner horrified watching them do it (she wouldn't stay around the corner with the nice nurse). So we got packed back up, Adam got some tylenol, chocolate milk and some nummies. Off we went to our Mom's Club meeting. That went fine and I got some cuddles and they kids both got to play with friends. After that we headed out to the grocery store AGAIN, to do half our shopping. We do half at Hilander and half at Aldi's to try and save money on groceries each month. It's working pretty well for us so far. As long as I remember to save a quarter....
We got home, I got the mail, picked up everything in our yard (what is UP what the WIND?!?!) brought the kids in, put Thing 2 down for a much needed nap, brought in the groceries, put them away, made Thing 1 lunch, did some laundry, cleaned, ate lunch and CRASHED. I think Thing 1 and I were cuddled up in bed for like 4 hours total. At some point I went to get Thing 2 and next thing I knew we were all a jumble in the bed and I was watching them both sleep. Thing 2 hasn't fallen asleep with me since he was a newborn, so I tried very hard not to cheer :D
Then it was dinner time, Daddy came home and it was bedtime. Today went SOOO fast, TGIF. I'm enjoying a bowl of chocolate girl scout thin mint ice cream and then I think I'll head to bed early. I don't have nearly as much snark in me as I do when I have coffee. I'll remedy that tomorrow.
On the agenda tomorrow is a craft fair and lunch with my favorite girl and I'm thinking someone at Sprint is going to get my phone up a painful orifice tomorrow. Which one remains to be seen.
Zombie Mom out.
