It's Friday again and my kids attend a school for homeschooled kids so we needed to get there by 8:30am. Well, recently our transmission in our van went out so my dad kindly offered his car. My husband needs our other vehicle for work.
|What I felt like inside|
I woke up with plenty of time to get ready but because I had such bad morning sickness I was stuck in the bathroom for half hour. By the time I got out the kids only had 10 minutes to finish getting ready. I didn't have time to dress the two little ones because I didn't want to be late and the kids have a field trip today. I put Caleb in with just his pajamas and Ashley also. As I'm loading up the car seat for Caleb I realize that the straps are so tight I can't fit Caleb in them. Since it's a new seat I couldn't find the release button anywhere. I searched all over and just couldn't find it. By now I knew we were going to be late to school. I finally put a booster seat in the car for Caleb and I hated doing that because it's more for kids one year older than he is. All the way to the school Caleb was trying to escape his seat so Kyle had to hold him down. Well, Caleb didn't like that so he was pulling his big brother's hair. I was on the freeway so there was nowhere to pull over.
Finally..... FINALLY, I pulled up to my house. I had made it home. I felt like crying I was so happy to be home. Then it dawns on me.... when I left with my dad's keys I had forgotten to grab my own so that means we were locked out of the house. Sigh. "Why? Whyyyyyyyy?!" Charles usually comes home around that time so I was pleading with God to not let him run lots of errands or anything like that. Caleb pooped his diaper really bad and in the rush of just getting the kids to school (and thinking we'd be right back) I didn't grab anything. Ashley starts to dance because she has to pee. About an hour later of just sitting there I finally just get out and starting thinking about hopping over the fence to at least let the kids play in the backyard. I didn't want to hurt my pregnant tummy so I began to "build steps" so I could climb over the wall rather than jump. It had already been an hour and now I needed to potty. Out of frustration I wiggle the front door and it opens right up? What? "AGgggggghhhh!" First I thought someone broke in but then I remember that the boys had went out the front door to get something and forgot to lock it. You mean all this time I've been sitting out here I could've just walked in my house? Oh man, the frustration and joy were all mixed together. As soon as I discover the front door was unlocked my husband comes home. Sigh. I walked in and just sat on the couch. I didn't want to do anything. Not wash clothes. Not wash any dishes. Nothing. I was just so happy I made it home. It was only 10am and I was completely burned out. I laid the kids down for a nap so I could nap but the phone wouldn't stop ringing. It rang about every 5 minutes and so the kids only napped for about 15 minutes. Sigh.
