I just finished clipping my too-long toenails on Snickerdoodle who is sitting in my sink napping and I was musing over this week. It wasn’t super bad or anything, I just managed to screw up like I wrote about in another blog. I decided to hi-light the best of the worst:
-so TODAY, for example. It started out good, Summit woke up around a quarter to 8 so we put him in his swing to get an extra hour of sleep. We hadn’t used the swing in awhile and it’s a treat for Summit. I woke up and hit Ben accidentally at 10:45. When church starts. When we were suppose to be there to do nursery.
I sent Summi in his pj’s with Ben who got ready in 5 minutes ahead to church so at least he would be there to help and tell them I was on my way. I was going to just go with them, but I realized that I had a baby shower to go straight to after church so I couldn’t just go in jeans and a tee-shirt. I had to look nice as a hostess! I nearly had a heart attack getting ready as quick as I could after Ben left, I was so pissed at myself. What is ‘funny’ is as soon as I got to the nursery at church the other worker told me Kim’s water had broke this morning so the shower was canceled.
-Also TODAY. I forgot to call my friendship family student from the U of A that I had invited to watch the super bowl with us. Oops. Great American family. I am the worst Friendship family host ever. I invite her to do something with us and don’t follow up. She couldn’t go last minute (surprise) but I guess at least I tried… sort of. If you think I’m being hard on myself, think again…
-last Saturday. I am running LATE for the Friendship Family Hosting Luncheon. Its from 10:30-12 and at 11:20 I’m running around the U of A campus trying to find the location. I get a CALL from one of the guys who runs it, “where the heck are you? She’s been waiting an hour for you.” We make great first impressions in the Clark household!!!!!!
-Thursday. I was working on an important mailout from last Friday for the church that had, I mean, HAD to go out by the end of the month which was this Thursday, the 31st. I actually insisted that I could do it all, talked Karen into it, and told her I’d put it in the mail MONDAY. I completely let her down. I’m still sick to my stomach about this one.
-Thursday Night. This one is alleged… Some friends called me to hang out and I apparently told them I’d call them back and didn’t. hmmm. I “dissed” them. lol. I don’t feel that bad about this one, I think it’s kind of funny. Sorry though!
-I forgot to bring cash for the pizza at the Super Bowl party
-I forgot to bring cash to Julie’s for babysitting Summit for the second week in a row
-Have I mentioned that Summit has NO photo album to speak of and tons of pictures on the camera card??!! I’ve GOT to get on the ball before his first birthday!
I have been told being a mom makes you crazy, but this insanity is beyond anything I could ever have imagined!!!! Even as I’m typing I’m making a mental list of things I HAVE GOT TO DO this week that I’ve procrastinated doing for awhile. Take your birth control, my friends, this rodeo isn’t for the weak and I’m about to get thrown.
PS. I just did spell check and I’m ecstatic that I didn’t mis-spell ANY words, unless it isn’t working! Rock ON!
Son of a blank. I just re-edited this post for labels, and I misspelled like 10 words. The spell check must NOT have been working. (I freakin’ even misspelled “misspelled”.)
