My day started of rotten yesterday. Scott was mad at me cause he couldn't find a file that he needed that I "moved"...., I searched for 45 minutes for Barrett's baby so we were running late for school, I never could find it..and then he walks into the bathroom holding it, saying, "I found it MAMA!!", NEW RULE: Baby isn't to leave the house anymore, Barrett picked out a NEW animal that will accompany him to school, "school bear"...., as I was looking for the baby, I found puke in the back of one of the boy's dump trucks, nasty!! Barrett is a big puker, if he runs after he chugs chocolate milk or jumps on the toy room couch he throws up..., so no worries that he was sick and I didn't know it., just not exactly what I wanted to see in the am while rushing around.....I still have Christmas crap ALL over the house and it's really bugging me. It was my turn to car pool...Barrett cried THE whole ride (approx. 30 min) to school, then I realized as I was unloading him that I had forgotten to feed him breakfast!!! Poor little guy with NOTHING in his tummy. I told his teachers that if he scarfs down his am snack that is why, at least I'm honest right?
Then I continued to buy more Christmas crap for the house, LOTs of it, so much in fact that each of the boys, including Will (our carpool buddy) had to ride home with something on their lap..more precisely, one Santa, one sleigh, and a bag of garland...I need a bigger car for sure or maybe one of those mini u-haul silver things....I've decided I don't really like doing the holiday decorating, it's just a lot of work. So much for my big idea to have a tree in every room THIS year. I set a budget for new stuff to fill the bigger home than I'm use to decorating... in past Christmases and after slightly (well maybe a lot) going over the budget, plus being sick of decorating, I've just plain decided..., is ALL this really worth it...my kids are only 2 and 3 AND they are boys!!! I've ALSO decided to simplify a little this year and only do the rooms that we will be celebrating in...I'll do the other rooms in the future, like in 2020....I'm almost finished with the hearth room/kitchen/staircases/Scott's trophy room/kid's desk area and that is IT this year!!!
As the day turned to night, it did get better. I went to a friends girls night out party where there were 3 different crafty people that made fun cool funky things...just what I needed to end the day, a great friend to accompany me, yummy food and something fun and unique for Mama to wear. After my day I thought I'd treat myself to something deserving!!
