Trying To Cram It All In...

From Wikipedia, Lower Sabie, Kruger National Park (South Africa)

Since I slept most of the day away yesterday, I'm cramming a weekend into today. I did a pretty good job since I was up by 10:40-ish, I think.

Better than yesterday's scream from Faith, "It's 3:40!!!"

Oh shit!

Elijah is able to get the toaster (the pop-up kind) going along with the frozen pancakes so he was pretty set.

I imagine that Faith did alright until she really wanted a hotdog so I had to get up.

I know I'm the worst. Truly. I was pretty out though. Exhaustion may be the correct word. Whatever, I know, no excuse.

So, I worked on making it up today.

I went to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription and sunscreen, went to the garden store, worked in the garden, and typed and printed up information for Faith's cheetah cubs project which is due Wednesday. The kids played outside in the sprinkler with Daddy. I took Faith with me to the garden store. We went to McDonald's for sodas to cool off. Brought Elijah home a McFlurry which was really not bought for him since Faith and I had taken a few bites. But, when Elijah wondered what was for him, I gave up the McFlurry much to Faith's dissatisfaction. Oh well. I do the best I can.

My husband has brought me a rum and coke which only means that he is going to try and cram a little more into this day. Wasn't it enough that I went to pick up the sunscreen?!? haha

We still have to watch The Tudors. And, I brought work home.

Man, I'm going to be up all night which is what causes the Saturday sleep-ins. Vicious cyle.

And, I've just been notified that I didn't sleep with the kids like I promised so can I sleep with them tonight? Since I promised?!?! [say it all whiney, please]

Have a great week all.

I'm sure the cheetah cubs project will be amazing so I will definitely have to show it off!

An interesting idea...
Blog from work by email so the real me can be seen.
The me that wants to run far from work.  The me that is being driven insane by the many people that I speak with daily. The me that is about to cry.

Friday, April 17, 2009

So, we are getting the hell outta here today...

We haven't really gone anywhere in the last few weeks to a month...except to crazy and back.

While my husband finishes packing as I've instructed him, I thought I would mention a little tidbit even though I realize I'm pretty much talking to myself's okay...that's what I do alot of...talking to myself...trying to talk myself down off that ledge, etc....I kid.

Anyway, my husband tells me this morning about how all Elijah has wanted to do this week is go to D.C. already, since that's where we are going.

Daddy says to him yesterday, "Well, we have to wait for Mom. She planned the whole trip."

Elijah replies or whines, "Let's just leave her and goooo."

After Daddy and I laugh over this and I call my son a bastard, I go to speak with Elijah about this.

ME: I can't believe it. You wanted to leave and go without me yesterday?!?
E: [He looks at me. Looks at the time.] It's 10:10.

As if to say, get it going, Woman!

I walk off in a huff. Unbelievable, this kid. Watch! As soon as we get to the Verrazano Bridge, he will be ready to get back home.

I can see now that waiting a year to take him anywhere may not have helped.

Only time and liquor will tell.

Hope all is well.

[I'm escaping from work to spend some time with my peeps!]
