Hi all. It is monday monday monday.
This weekend was pretty low key. Of course...the boys passed their colds on to me...and I am feeling cruddddddddddy.
We went to tball on Sat (mom and auntie spent the night on Friday) and then daddy took the boys to his mom's for a picnic without me. I SHOULD have gone...but was so tired (after being up with the boys) so I opted out. Then we just hung out that night
Sunday the boys and I played and then went to a play date at a friend from schools. then we went to Walmart. What oh what oh what possessed me to do thatttt?
Come with me if you will.
We pull into the SuperWalmart parking at 3:45pm Sunday afternoon. I got a parking spot right upfront so thought...yayya me...this will be cool ( mind you...I thought at first...you should not go on a weekend) We got in...looked a little busy..not too bad).
After 5mins I realized everyone was drunk and or on drugs. Why else would they stop in the middle of the isle talking like they were the only ones on earth? Why would they suddenly make a left turn...from the far right of the walkway? Why would they let their children stand (barefoot and with out pants) up in the little sitting area of the cart yelling at top of their lungs?? Why else would they not see me as they try to occupy the same EXACT same spot of the planet I was standing on...and not even say excuse me as they grabbed the FLIPPING LAST box of infant's Tylenol cold medicine! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRr
So...we get to the grocery part of the store. It is now that Hayden starts to voice his displeasure. Momma. I too tawred...me need my blanky....cudda me momma. I assure him he are almost done. I fight my way through the pork section (I want ribs for some reason), grab the bevarges, cereal, yogurt etc. Then we get to the produce. Don't ...........get............me............started. People. Please. Single file line...grab what you need...move along. It is produce. Not a car. Not a house. Not even a pair of shoes. Nothing that takes a lot of thought. Grab it, bag it and MOVE! Ok...I am starting to lose it. Hayden is now whining at full volume. Chase has his fingers in his ears and is starting his mantra of "I can't take it anymore I can't take it anymore I can't take it anymore" over and over and over...and did I say over again.
So...we round the corner and I see...no...not relief in sight...but about 15 lines of person after person. My goodness people...it isn't disney land...it isn't your chance to meet your fave ball player. It is Walmart. But, my dear Tracy....it is Walmart on a Weekend. Ackkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk. Note to self..never ever ever ever will I ever ever ever go on a weekend. AGain. eVERERERERE. so not worth the money you save. How many bottles of wine will I need to down to fix this CRAP?@?@
Now...we are almost to the middle of the line. Hayden starts crying ever louder. It ISSSS possible. He now wants to be held. So I hold him and sing twinkle twinkle as I smile at the burly man with dog food behind me. Chase now has to go "PEEEEE" as he yells top voice. sighhhhhhhhhhh. hold it son. please. now hayden is hiccuping. but a noisy wet sounding hiccup. and tellign me "my tummy hurt momma". oh please oh please oh please...nooooo. (friday in school...one of chase's classmates starts puking all around me. I then learn there is a tummy bug going around the school). I am now starting to feel caged. To feel on edge. To feel like just leaving the dang cart and running for starbucks ( do they put a shot of something else wink wink in their mocha's). We now get to the front of the line. Hayden is now on floor (I am never ever one of THOSE mom's that get THOSE looks from the ppl around them. Now is my turn) The clerk is hurrying his way along...no one wants to see/hear this. We are all loaded, paid etc. I look at him and say "have a nice night" as he is already scanning the dogfood man behind me. I hear nothing. I stop and turn and say "Excuse me....you DID tell me to have a good night too. Or at least you too or uh huh or something right???????" I think I had a really crazed look on my face at this point. The scared clerk says...uh yeah...I did. EVERYONE around me starts giggling and I start laughing...I tell him...Always always always say that to your customers....especially the crazed looking moms."
We aren't even out of the parking lot before the monkies fall asleep. My hubby empties the car and I go hide in the bathroom...hey...when I get to be in there for any amount of time ALONE...I don't want to come out, :)
So...we are all tucked in for the night. I even got to play on the puter here and there.
I played with Janel and her CT member Rez to celebrate the opening of Pink Poodle Studios. I got my layout using Janel's Alexander kit in the newsletter and that won me a GC. I got to use her beautiful Freebie kit she is giving out for Same Kit/Different Ways Challenge for this layout.
I won a free alpha and we get 50 percent off her goodies~~~ wow I had a good scrapping day ;)
I played at Blue Flombingo and am loving the chance to hit a Karah sale!!
I did this layout which I love...of my grandbaby. It is my first layout as SaraAmarie's Guest CT!!! I used her Natural Collection:Pacific at Oscraps.
And of course...since you made it this far....I made it into a template for ya ;)
Click here to download...only if you leave me love and promise to not share, sell, claim and all that jazz.
Chase is on spring break (hayden still has preschool) so we are going to do some art work that is a little hard to do with Hayden around. He is excited to have me all to himself, so I am signing out!
