When it rains, it pours.

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.

  1. Oh dear… What a nightmare. I’m so sorry about Reeve. It’s just awful. An isn’t always that the 3yo has to poop at the most in opportune times?? I mean seriously?? How the hell do they know the worst possible time to have to potty? Hailey pulls that on me ALL THE TIME!!! And will you quit with fat talk?? Makes us “bigger” girls feel worse about ourselves!! Haha 🙂 I hope you survive the next 3 weeks…. Without developing PTSD 😀 lol

  2. Love this post… Make sure you download VPN Express before you go so you have your blog reading AND Facebook! A life saver if you ask me and a bargain for just 5 bucks a month!

  3. You’re not fat, girl! You’re an amazing Mommy to those cuties and you’ve got the best broad jump I’ve seen yet! I’ll trade you legs any day:)

  4. That is EXACTLY how I felt before I moved to China the first time. We’d just bought a house that we had to turn around and sell plus I was 6 months pregnant with 4th kid.

    BUT that family photo makes up for all of it. I LOVE it! Makes me happy to zoom in to keep looking at it. Your kids are hard now – that’s just a fact, but they are nice & cute to the rest of us and will be to you too (as soon as you’ve got Ah Hua back!!)
