On Tuesday we went to the laundry mat because the dryer broke down! SO MUCH FUN! And my new friend, Bill, even offered to buy me an A&W. He asked if my ring was real or just a deterrent. Lucky me! I’ve always had a thing for toothless men….Bonus: Maddox found a HUGE dead cockroach under one of the washers. Free science lesson!
On Wednesday, Reeve tipped over a table at McDonald’s (don’t give me that look) and it landed on his head knocking him out. Just as I’m pulling the table off of him, Maddox announces, ” I have to poo-poo.” When a 3 year old says that, it doesn’t mean in five minutes. It means NOW. A trip to the potty, the doctor and one concussion later…. How exciting is that?
Add to this all the fun of being home alone with 4 kids under 7, packing suitcases for 6 weeks while our stuff is on the slow boat to China, organizing and preparing for an international move, trying to sell a house, car and every electrical item we own. Par-tay!
The best part is since we are not allowed to ship any booze, I gave it all to my friend for her party tonight, (which I’m clearly NOT at), because I definitely DO NOT feel like a drink tonight. I mean, who would in my shoes? I’m riding on the natural high of life! The party is just beginning! I’m having so much fun that I’m not even sure I can get to sleep tonight. And it has nothing to do with the fact that my oldest has a friend sleeping over and I’ll have two 3yr olds and a 4yr old in my bed with me tonight. Can you just say AWESOME? And the last thing I would ever want is to be drinking beer, childless, with all my friends. Think of all those carbs and boring gossip I’m saving myself from!
Coy is sure to be green with envy. He’s probably trying to find a friend to babysit for or some laundry to do at this very minute!
And did I mention that I’m well aware of the rule, “Never start a sentence with And?” And did I mention that I think that rule is ridiculous? And can you all tell that I’m clearly losing my mind?
All joking aside, I really do miss my hubby. He probably cannot read my blog since he is already in China. Everything good is blocked there, ha ha. He is the only one who knows just how hard this crew can be. We make a better team when we are together in the same country, that is for sure!
Have a nice weekend everyone! By the way, I’m TOTALLY fat again. Fat Tom is sure to be gloating.
