This afternoon started out innocently enough. A school project sprung on me at the last minute, a quick trip to Grandma and Gramp's house for supplies, and a drive thru dinner. I thought we could do all this, zip home, get all the crap out of the car, throw the girls in bed, and get to work on the project. And hopefully leave myself enough time to blog about a quick project of my own. Easy peasy.....no problem.....or so I thought. After making at least 5 trips in and out of the house unloading the car, we locked it, shut the doors, and came in to get the girls ready for bed. My middle son went to look for my phone to call a friend from his class to get some more info on the project that's due tomorrow. He yelled down the hall that he couldn't find it anywhere. Well, duh...it's where it always is...in my purse, in the laundry room. No mom, it's not there. Well of course it is...it has to be! Guess what? It wasn't there. No purse. No keys. No phone. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Breathe I told myself, don't freak out self. So I calmly put the girls to bed and did a lot of deep breathing and counting. It didn't help much, by the way, but I did it just the same. Finished that task, went to the neighbors to use their phone, called my insurance for a locksmith, and waited. But not for long, because then they call and tell me my debit card expired today and it won't go through. Did I mention that the extra key is in Georgia 10 hours away with my husband??? Yeah...lovely!
This is the story of my life. Have you ever been so overwhelmed and distracted that you do the silliest things that turn out to be the hugest hassle ever? Or is it just me? Here's hoping for a good night's sleep, a better day tomorrow, and hopefully a solution to my problem. Oh...and thank goodness my kids ride the school bus or we'd be up crap creek (even deeper than we already are)!
