Numb

This has been the WORST day!!!!

- Matthew refused to come out of the bedroom this morning and when I went in there, he was crying on the top bunk because he had wet the bed. He did not want to come off the bunk at all. It took a lot of time to talk him down and get things fixed.

- We were running late to get the boys to Karate camp, and I forgot to give them anything to eat for lunch.

- I went to my pain doc because my back had been getting so bad. I got refills on my pills, and he was going to start me on regular massage therapy (SCORE!) but said he wants to give it another month or so because of the incision in my back. He also X-rayed my neck because he thinks I have some arthritis or disk issues starting there as well.

- I got home and started frantically working on two documents that I worked on all last week, which I had promised people by close of business California time today. I got one fairly close to finished, and was working on the sixth page of a very in-depth project plan for a very high priority project I am running when my computer starts spewing some sort of 'Main memory' error and froze up. It won't even boot now. I can't even get to the boot prom. Not even to setup. All of my work is GONE and there is no way I can recreate those docs in one day. I'm fucked.

- Working so hard on those docs, I look at the clock and see it is 3:15. The boys' camp ended at 3 and we were admonished to not be late picking up our kids. FUCK! Thankfully, I didn't get pulled over speeding down there.

- One of the dogs spread poop EVERYWHERE downstairs today, and it took me about an hour to clean the carpet of all of the trackmarks.

Can we just call today over? Fast forward to tomorrow?

On the lighter side of things, when Scott saw me so frustrated he grabbed the kids and took them to see the new Fantastic Four movie. They just got home and went straight to bed.

God, I love that man :)

What a perfect icon for this post. It sounds like an entire month attacked you at once!

I wish I could waive my fairy godmother wand, sing *bibbity boppety boo* (or however your spell it) and make things all better. But alas, my magic wand is missing. Blame it on the three year old who lives here. When we find it, it will probably be broken and covered in peanut butter.


Given the recent developments in your household, are we still on for the end of this month? If so, can we stay someplace cheaper? Please?


P.S. Oops. I just realize I'm logged in as my travel journal. Sorry about that.

You can stay real cheap if you want to! :) You're welcome to stay with us! Michael and Matthew can sleep with my mom and you, me and LG can share a bed. Or we can get cots brought in for the kids. You can stay with us as long as you like.

I won't let you get out of this visit ;)

Wands make me think of the bubble wands you sent the kids. They are so awesome that I have a hard time letting them use them for bubbles.

I haven't checked yet, but I wonder if a suite would be cheaper than two separate rooms. It sure would make things easier. Are you interested in doing that?

We can see if they would let us. I used Scott's points to get that room for free, so I don't know if they would apply that towards a suite.

Doesn't hurt to check, huh?

Yeah, I checked about using points, but we've used them all up for our hotel stay in San Juan before our next New Year's cruise. We've got 3 days there before we set sail.

Here's the message I have on my answering machine. I think you could use it!

"Hello. You have reached blah blah blah. Due to a severe lack of interest, today has been canceled. Please try your call again tomorrow. Beep."

I wish I really could cancel a day here and there. I'd cancel this one just for you kiddo!
