The ICS kept me hopping until three yesterday, then I HAD to come home and die on the couch. Because of the holiday weekend, the entire family had been commissioned to work - and understandably, my youngest was not able to be there with all that is happening in his gf's family, and Mark was the one good enough to stay. So, I was asleep when he got in. All of my kids were crabby yesterday, I proclaimed it "mom's tired of this crap day" and came home. I needed to crack the books but my brain was way too fried to begin anything of the sort. After a couple of futile attempts, I took a nap. Much better strategy, wouldn't you say?
So, that leaves me with two days to re-learn the entire state of Iowa Insurance book of rules and regulations. No problem.....
Here are a few bullet points of wisdom I have discovered these past few days:
- One should never, EVER bump the emergency button in the elevator with a bag from the grocery store, as it sends out the entire West Des Moines fire department...and there is no WAY to cancel that call from the elevator...
- Do not, under any circumstances, make a large strawberry malt without putting the milk in the middle or the bottom of the mixing cup, unless of course, you like strawberries in your hair.
- Always Scotchguard your several hundred dollar area rug, this is especially true if you have kitties that enjoy sport puking...as they will avoid every other surface in the house.
- Never, ever ask your husband to sleep on the balcony with you, he will look at you like you have two heads, and make you feel quite stupid.
I hope these pearls of wisdom can help some of you, I know that so many of your lives mirror mine...HA!
Have a very happy Sunday. If you aren't happy with your chores and activities for this day, think of me, with my head in the MOST boring book on the planet....:)
