Yesterday is Over

And I'm so glad about it.
Totally just one of those days that random, odd things happen.
And once it starts, it's like a domino effect of craziness.
I blame it on deciding to put baby powder in my hair in an attempt to skip a day washing.
Because after that, nothing went right.
Including the baby powder.
I just feel like Martha Washington now.
And smell like Secret deoderant.
So after that, I discovered our kitchen sink was leaking underneath, for who knows how long.
I discovered this while in the middle of making homemade biscuits, something you can't just stop in the middle of.
So that was an adventure.
Couldn't get a hold of Bryan to tell me what to do.
Spilled water all over the kitchen floor switching out bowls to catch the leaking water.
All while listening to the Hannah Montana movie playing for Lo, who, unknown to me, had snuck downstairs.
So I was left with the vocal stylings of Miley Cyrus as a background soundtrack to this kitchen madness.
Mya wouldn't eat anything yesterday.
Everything was thrown as far as she could get it.
Got an email from work informing me I would need to come in to get some required immunizations. What??? Never required in the past. I feel like I'm going into Kindergarten.
Got another email from work informing me that today is really going to suck. Thanks.
Naptime freakout because Sleeping Beauty's dress sleeve is torn. And I mean FREAK OUT.
Forgot to put the ribs in the oven at 1:30, had to compromise.
Cooked them at a higher temp to compensate, and almost completely dried them out.
Bryan said he liked them better. Liar.
Lo then refused to eat dinner. MAC & CHEESE! Again, what????
Got sick from ribs. I think I'm developing an aversion to pork.
Kids were both up numerous times in the middle of the night.
And how can I forget the nonstop headache behind my eyes from the moment I opened them in the morning? Seriously.
At least I had an enjoyable text convo with J somewhere in the middle of all of it.
And managed to squeeze in some good reading between the water leak & naptime freakout.
So I guess the entire day wasn't horrible.
Hello today.
Please be nice.
Thanks.

Oh, what a day! I'm really hoping for you that today is better. That your girls sit in pretty little dresses and quietly play and eat everything placed in front of them with their best manners while you float around the kitchen whipping up the best meal ever in your bouncy shiny vivacious freshly washed hair. I'm hoping all of that and maybe even for you to get flowers as an unexpected surprise from your work today with a note attached saying, "You're the best!! Sorry we made yesterday so rough on you!You get a free paid day off!"

Yep. I think that would do it.

Wow! I wanna sign up for the day Lindsay described above! Hope today is better for you! I also hope you have many hours of fun reading ahead! I guess you'd recommend those books to me huh? Funny that I own them and never read them!

Oh my gosh I can't believe your day! I have to admit this post made me giggle, because I think there are so many of us that go through all those things on a daily basis! LOL, I love that you tried baby powder in your hair. I've done it before! Is that why you asked about dry shampoo on FB? LOL. Your post made me laugh today so thanks for cheering me up! I'm so glad I'm not the only one with constant daily irritants! I love you Kierst!

You are hilarious Kiersti! I don't mean to laugh at your misery, but the Martha Washington part really put me over the edge! Have a better day today!

"don't be caught without your shot".. I saw that and thought of a gun.

Baby powder? Who knew! Next time I'm going for the Martha Washington look, I'll remember that...
