I guess I am having one of "those" days. I didn't realize it at first, but now looking back at my day and my current mood, I can tell I'm having, what I call, a deployment day (the kind of day that doesn't go your way and only happens when the husband isn't home to help or for you to vent to). First off I haven't heard from the husband in awhile, which of course always puts me on edge. Then I had the issue with work, which did get fixed thankfully. Little L woke up in a bad mood from his nap and has been whiny the ENTIRE night! I decided to go to the grocery store with the kids for the first time by myself since Baby E was born, figuring that getting out of the house would help get Little L out of his funk. I was very proud of myself for making it successfully through the store, and was in a better mood, that is until I got out to my car and noticed that some one parked like right next to my car! And I don't mean a little close like hugging the white line, I mean like so close I could not open my back door to get Baby E and her car seat into the car. I thought seeing as I live in the land of the retired that going to the grocery store after dark was a good idea, I guess not. As I was contemplating what to do and cursing the person who drove this car, the owner walks up. Of course the owner was a little old lady. I asked her if it was her car and she said yes and that she would wait for me to get the kids in, and I could take my time. Really?!?!? How did she expect me to get them in when I couldn't open MY door???? Didn't she notice it was hard for her to get out of her car when she went into the grocery store? I explained my situation to her, which I didn't think needed to be explained, I thought it was pretty obvious. Then I had to wait as she put her groceries in her car, then decide what to do with her cart, slide into her car and back out. Any excitement I had at making it through the grocery store with both kids was just trashed because of her. Normally stuff like this annoys me, I complain about it for a min then move on, but today it just pissed me off.
Now that the kids are finally asleep, which of course they fought tooth and nail, I think I will go to bed and hope that things tomorrow go more my way.
I need to get husbands Valentine's care package in the mail ASAP. Anyone have any good ideas for what to put in the Valentine's care package?
