Just when you think that you are having a rotten, never ending day, something happens to make you reflect upon what has occurred since waking up. It is then, that you actually realize that you have had incredible success so far and that you should be patting yourself on the back:

  • Both kids actually got up at 7:30 am this morning as opposed to 6:30 am.
  • Daycare kids did not arrive until 8:45 am this morning as opposed to 7:00 am.
  • Despite Masyn and daycare girl bullying each other (even though they are also true friends), we have avoided injury of any type including bite marks, pinch marks, nail marks, bruises and cuts due to pushing from behind.
  • I have managed to grind only my teeth rather than strangle said girls for being beyond difficult today.
  • Enrolled Kaelen into Kindergarten with all five kids in tow because you can't enroll over the phone or internet.
  • Applied for an office job by dropping off resume in person (I had to bribe the kids with donuts and turned on DVD players in van to do so).
  • Paid bills and still had money (not much) in the bank account.
  • Managed to drop a bowl of vegetable soup on the kitchen floor, resulting in splatter marks in every nook & cranny of the kitchen. This (at the time) fatal mistake actually resulted in making me hand wash the cupboards, floors and yes, even ceiling. The kitchen is now nice and sparkly.
  • Have managed to get supper almost ready (and it isn't even 2:00 pm yet!) so it is slowly simmering, gathering delicious flavour for 5:30 pm.
  • And yes .... actually posted twice in one day!
