one of those days

You know when you have one of those days...

The ones where you snooze the alarm a half a dozen times before crawling out of bed ... oh wait, that's every morning! 

Ok, well how about the ones where your kids argue about everything from what to eat for breakfast to what to wear and every single other thing before running to catch the bus to school... oops, did it again!

How about when you go to unload the dishwasher and realize you forgot to turn it on last night and there are no clean plates/bowls/spoons/mugs for your morning coffee/tea/breakfast.  You know it's not going to be a good day.

Ditto for the washing machine.  Being told at 7am by your daughter that she has no clean underwear is not a good way to start the day.  Oh but wait there's a clean load in the dryer... that was started!  Thank goodness.

So it's obvious that you must begin your day by organizing the laundry but before you can start it the door bell rings wth a delivery.  You start putting the delivered supplies away and realize you've forgotten to order something specific.  You better write yourself a note because if not you'll forget again!  This is when the smell hits you... almost knocks you over.  There's been a poop explosioin a la Caelan!  Ugh.  This is going to require a bath and more laundry.  Get Caelan ready for his bath.  Have a great time with the rubber duckies.  Go to get Caelan out and ... oh yah, the towels are in the washer, great!!  Note:  babies are very slippery.

Or how about when something that's supposed to be charged isn't.  How frustrating!  You're probably thinking cell phone or similar device but in this house that would be Caelan's feed pump.  Nothing like having a "battery low" alarm ringing off every 10 minutes during a two hour feed!  This would be during the same feed that I find a big puddle of formula leaking onto the floor.  Guaranteed to occcur at least once a feed.  Seriously.

Vacuum the floors and run a quick mop over them and five minutes after the kids get home from school nobody'd ever know you'd cleaned them.  At least you know it's fresh dirt.

You know those days where you tidy one room only to turn around and find another one a disaster.  Or you put the same toys away three times.  Why bother?

It's those days when you start a million things and accomplish nothing. 

Good thing today's not one of those days...
