I'm grouchy today. I know when I started this blog it was to record my life as a SAHM to two sometimes wild little boys. Now it would be pretty boring if all was peaches and cream wouldn't it? So again I might rant a bit. Today was a pain in the you know what. Here is some random venting to make me feel better. It may make you feel better, too.
1- Why is that when you spill something in your house it seems to multiply 10 times over before it lands? Today mini#2 spilled half of a half glass of milk at the table and didn't bother to tell me. I never totally fill his glass for this very reason. Doesn't matter. It was everywhere. You can't cry over spilled milk, but you can mutter a few choice words under your breath.
2- Example #2 of aforementioned vent. Lunchtime. Made mini#2 grilled cheese. He was happily eating and I reheated my black bean chili. This is an awesome low fat recipe I'll post when I'm less grouchy. Poured myself half a glass of sweet tea I had made for relatives (read: our parents) last weekend and no one really drank it. I only make this for company, being southern and all. I had just put the pitcher back in the refrigerator and it fell out of the refrigerator, onto the floor and on me. It looked like a flood. Sticky flood. Mopped forever. Chili cold. Me ticked!
3- Mini#1 will. not. listen. Drives me insane. He gets home at 4:15. We have one hour for snack, changing, homework before karate class. That's a long time...by yourself. With mini#1 (1st grade) he sometimes needs about 3 hours to accomplish these tasks. Needless to say it wasn't pretty here today. I yelled. A lot.
4- Tomorrow there's no school. I think I promised the kids I'd take them to see Horton Hears a Who. Should be real rivoting. I hear Oscar buzz. Normally I love taking the kids, but I still might be grouchy.
5- I got my April Southern Living. For the second or third month it's so flimsy I almost tossed it out with the junk mail. What has happened to this magazine? Where did the rest of it go? Does this mean they're planning to charge less?
Ok, I feel a little better. I'll be sweeter, nicer, calmer tomorrow. After all it's Good Friday. I have no reason to be grouchy on Good Friday. I hope your day was better than mine!
