As soon as the girls got up, we jumped in the shower (remind me to blog about that!), had breakfast, packed our bags and were out the door!! I should mention that we got up at 7:30am and it was 10:45am when we got out the door!!! Grrr... not a good start...
My list of things to do was huge. Get gas, go to the bank, the Dollar store, Winners, PayLess and then to Walmart.
Walmart was the most important so I thought I better tackle it first as I was beginning to get a feel of how this day was going to play out.
Good thing I did!! We got through Walmart okay, but by the time I got to PayLess which is 2 minutes away, I had a 3 year old in meltdown mode and a 1 year old following suit! Fantastic!!
We lasted about 2 minutes in the shoe store and I said "Lets just go home!"..
Why do I bother? What's the point in trying?
In my girls defense,, they were tired, they were hungry and they really didn't want to be looking at shoes. In my defense, well, I just NEEDED to get things done!!!
I didn't get anything done, and now my list for tomorrow is twice as long! I just couldn't handle buckling/unbuckling one more car seat, or take one more kick in the gut from my Lylah because she wanted down..I couldn't take the whining! Enough was enough!!
As I was driving home, I wondered to myself why some really smart mommy couldn't think of a way to open a place that has everything all in one place!! Like really, would it hurt to put a Bank of Montreal in Walmart for me??? C'MON!!!
I thought about it once I got home,(while beating myself for not having more patience!) and if I were to have done everything that I had planned today, I would have buckled and unbuckled car seats 23 times!!!!!! Yep, 23!!!!
Is it really worth it??
That my friends is why I don't get things done, why I don't go out in the winter.
That is why I am one miserable mommy sitting on my couch bitching to you while drinking a coffee. AND.... that my friends is why Peter will be getting his butt to the liquor store after work (Mmmmm wine) And finally, that is why he will also be grabbing some takeout(Mmmm Thai) for dinner!!
I'm staying home!!!
Have a great weekend guys!!! Hopefully mine ends up better than it has started!
