The Day Didn’t Really Get Much Better

After dropping my kids at my friend’s house for babysitting and driving 30 minutes towards what I thought was my destination, I realized I had taken the wrong road and had to backtrack.  Which made me late for my appointment, so I had to wait for another client to go first.

I made good use of the time by walking down the street for a latte and biscotti. 

By the time my hair was done, it was pouring rain.  Joy.  I picked up my kids, and we made our way to Target, where we grabbed lunch and made a few returns and exchanges. 

While I was at the return counter, the baby walked away, and another patron found her standing near the exit door looking for me.  I don’t know if I’ve ever felt quite so low.  I plunked her in the cart for safe keeping and promised myself and God that I would be more careful from now on.

Back at home I tried to catch up on computer stuff while my kids bickered and nagged, and then I took advantage of my husband’s early arrival to grab a quick mani/pedi.  That was by far the highlight of my day.

I ran back home in plenty of time to get my son to his friend’s 6:30 birthday party, except that the party was at 6:00.  D’oh.  He tried to be gracious when I told him that I was doing my best, but I know he was disappointed.

After fighting rush hour traffic and two wrong turns (are you sensing a pattern here?), I dropped him off and then ran to the mall to pick up a present for the bride-to-be and do a couple other errands. 

Now it’s 9PM and I’m still not packed.  Which means I really need to get off the computer.

I plan to check in from Nashville, and I’m sure I’ll have oodles of pictures. 

Today is my dad’s birthday.  Happy Birthday, Daddy!

  1. I lost Kiki in Kohl’s one night and I was completely panicked. Finally they called my name over the loud speaker and they had her in customer service. Later that night I went into labor with AJ!!
    Have a great time in Nashville! I’m looking forward to hearing about it.

  2. Hi JL,
    Yesterday was my dad’s birthday also!
    Have fun down south, some good ole southern-ness is awesome for the soul 🙂

  3. I lost I at the aquarium this week. My mom was supposed to be holding his hand and well he wandered off. PANIC!
    Happy B’day to your dad and hope you have fun this weekend.

  4. But at least your haircut probably looks good…i got butchered 🙁 I tried explaining not to cut it too short because with the curls it shortens a foot when it dries, but it must’ve been lost on her. *sigh*
