The very bad, horrible, no good morning!

Well I certainly am not going to win any mother of the year awards now!! Lets see where to begin.

First of all I spent most of yesterday in Grand Junction picking up clothes for the kids and a blouse for Mom McCracken to where to Arlenes wedding, then I picked up Wade & McKenzie from Vel's house to take them back to Grandma McCrackens, then I stopped by Tonya Wilsons to pay for mom & dads 50th Anniversary cake. So on the way through Delta I stopped at this convience store that sells milk for $6 for 2 gallons, which would be a very good deal if the milk we not spoiled!!!

I love birds as much as anyone, but they start singing LOUDLY at my bedroom window at 4:45 every morning! So of course I get up and shut the windows and try to get back to sleep. Dosen't work!
I didn't discover until late last night that the milk was bad (both gallons), I got up at 6:00 and drove to Olathe and bought a new gallon of milk. Driving home, due to my own failure to really look, I was almost T-Boned on my side of the van by a huge truck!! If he had hit me I wouldn't be writing this because I most certainly would be dead now. After that narrow miss I decided to drive more carefully.

Upon arriving at the house I discover that my teenager did not in fact load the dishwasher last night, after assuring me he would. So I was very unhappy about the sink full of dirty dishes. I loaded it then took care of the laudry. The proceed to make pancakes for Alan & Tyler. Tyler didn't eat his and instead got himself a Coffee cup full of cereal and milk. "Why didn't you eat a pancake?" "Well, I didn't have time." Grrrrrr. So he gets made and DUMPS his cereal and milk into the sink (that I had just cleaned out), my you we don't have a garbage disposal, then he makes a beline for the door!! Needless to say I have not been a very happy mom this morning. Thanks for listening to my rant!

On a different note I have decided to list things that I am looking forward to.

1) Pictures that I am sure someone will post of Ashleas wedding. Since I am unable to attend.

2) Getting Arlenes veil completely finished. It is looking pretty good but I think I need to add some more lace to it.

3) Getting through Arlenes wedding week and just enjoying her day.

4) Getting through Alfred & Minnies 50th anniversary party. So I can stop worrying about it and maybe get some sleep!

5) Going to Nicole Herrmanns wedding, where I have to do is watch!

6) My 40th birthday. It means I am still alive and kickin

7) Getting my house organized and my homeschooling finalized for next fall.

8) Tyler coming home so I can apologize for being such a jerk this morning.

I think we all have those days. By the way I love your list.

And thank you for the invite, I am not sure on the route that Lee plans on taking. But I will let you know if we go through that way.

Was #1 some kind of a hint? haha. I love # 9 the best. It always feels good to get the bad feelings all cleared up. I feel the pain of your morning with you!

Trina said...

Oh those types of morning are such a DRAG! I'm sorry, but I don't think that day counts you out of Mommy of the Year, after all look at all that you do. I was tired just reading it...hehehe You are a sweet mom, that's for sure!

JoAnn said...

Thanks everyone! After reading these I feel much better. I played in the pool with kids this evening, we had a great time.

Sylvia said...

I agree with Trina. Your list exhausted me. I know we all have those kind of days.

I am glad you had a nice evening. I sounds like you have a lot of things coming up. I hope you enjoy them. Love you Sis.

Marisela said...

I like your list. Sounds like you have been really busy.

Jules said...

Wow, I'm not the only one having a bad day. I wish neither one of us did. Sorry about yours. I would take those gallons of milk back to that store if I were you. Do you still have the receipt? I'm SO happy that you wasn't in a wreck. That would have been horrible! I hate waking up to a sink full of dirty dishes. I'm sorry that Tyler didn't think before he acted. It won't be long before I have teenagers, and I'm sure they will aggravate me also ;) I hadn't heard that Alfred and Minnie were celebrating their 50th. How cool! When is it? I wish I could go to Arlene's wedding. Please post some pics for me :D Who is Nicole marrying? I can't wait to see you in August. Take care, and hopefully you'll have a better day.

Well, it definitely shouldn't count you out of "Mommy of the Year", after all, you were prepared to apologize, while some people might have seen their mistake but let it slide. Sorry that you had such a bad morning. Like Mom, I especially liked number one on your list. Bethany was in here, and wanted to know why I was laughing, so I read it to her, and then added "Hint, hint!" I will try to be one of the ones with pictures, but I don't know how that'll go.
