And it's only noon. Can I have a do-over on today?
*We have mice. They are outside on the patio right now. But, since my children leave the door open all the time I'm expecting them to invade inside pretty soon. Mice completely freak me out. They are on my list with roaches. I'm not deathly afraid of them like snakes, but I don't like them and they creep me out. We have them. Mr. Mayer thinks I am being completely unreasonable about the situation. He thinks I should man up and kill them when I see them. I don't think he should be so mean about the situation. A little understanding about my dislike would go a long way. I mean, I kill spiders for him.
*My garage door is not working today. I discovered this at 5am. It's been an ongoing guessing game for a few months now. Some days it works. Some days it doesn't. At least it picked a fair weather day to not work. It's usually raining.
*About 5 minutes after Mr. Mayer and Diva left this morning I fell all the way down my second level of stairs and landed in a heap in the entryway. Luckily I was carrying two laundry baskets with me so I had laundry strung out everywhere. Owen and Carter were just staring at me.
*During my fall I broke a toe. I have never broken a bone in my life. This is a first. It's swollen and purple and hurts like the devil. Carter gave me kisses to make it feel better. It worked a little. My first thought when I realized my toe was broken was "How am I going to get my spin shoes on?!" That's normal, right?
*I had to pee. As I am sitting on the toilet Owen comes into the bathroom with his diaper around his knees saying "Buckle diaper Mommy!" in his whiniest voice possible. I reach down and start to fix his diaper only to realize I had just grabbed a handful of poop. Yup, he had a poopy diaper around his knees. And he had walked from upstairs. Oh-Em-Gee....
* I start cleaning Owen up. Carter comes into the room. Completely naked. He says "Where my diaper go Mommy?" What the hell is going on today?! I asked him if he diaper was poopy and he responds with his best "I don't know." Great. I get Owen cleaned up and Carter diapered and go on a scavenger hunt. Thank goodness the diaper wasn't even wet!! Whoo Hoo!! Score one for Mommy!
*The Dudes and I went and ran some errands. We picked up lunch and came home. The garage door isn't working so we unloaded and walked up to the front door. My hands were full with what we bought, lunch and drinks so the Dudes refused to open the storm door for me. Thanks guys! After I managed to get the door open I punched in the code for the front door. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. &*^%$^*(*!!! Crap. Just to make sure I do it a couple more times. Still nothing. We unload everything and traipse to the backyard. That back door opened! Whew! I was really close to losing my cool by that point.
*The Dudes wanted to eat lunch outside. So we did. And I sat there paranoid a mouse was going to run across my feet or something any second.
On the bright side I am about to go lay the Dudes down for a nap. Hopefully they will sleep today. Or, at least play quietly in their room? Maybe.
