Wow, it has been a BUSY day.
First off, it started at 3:30am. I had a super creepy dream about my ex, so much so that I couldn't fall back asleep because it had freaked me out so bad. By the time the kids got up I was so completely wired that I ran five miles and lifted weights. which normally wouldn't have been a big deal but I had made plans to go to a free Zumba class with a friend.
Side note: funny story, but shortly after I had The Boy Child, this same friend and I signed up for a hip-hop dance class. We were SO out of place it was downright mortifying. I still had all my baby weight, was completely out of shape, and we were easily ten years older than every girl there.
It was a moment I wish I could forget.
Back to the story.
Lucky her, she got more sleep than I did and missed the class.
I however, did not, and I have to tell you that it was an intense class. I'd say we started with maybe 30 people and ended with half that many. I guess I envisioned it more like a fitness dance class, but in all actuality it was a repetitive jumping and lunge class.
After the class and a second shower, I needed to give the car a quick tune-up. The Boy Child thought that was fabulous and pulled his chair right up to the car so that he could watch. View of a car, Mickey Mouse lawn chair, pinwheel. What more could a 3yr old boy want?
Try to pry it off now, I dare you.
Of course, the kids had to watch (I mean I love being so popular, but can I please get even two minutes to myself!?)
After that we ran a solid two hours of errands and then I came home to tackle a ginormous pile of laundry. When I was finished with that, I went to put the tools away and I saw a paint brush (have you ever read the book "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie? I totally had that day) and decided that I was finally going to paint the downstairs bathroom vanity.
Who the hell just decides on a whim "let's paint the house."
So I grabbed a can of paint out of the closet and got to work.
Oak, there is too much oak!
So you can just go ahead and add "play tooth fairy" to my to-do list.
Then came the whirlwind of dinner, little people bedtimes, and for some reason I decided that it would be the perfect time to WD40 the door hinges that are now squeaking because of the temperature change. Now I'm about to throw the last coat of paint onto the vanity and get ready to get my party on, because IT'S MY HOLIDAY WEEKEND PEOPLE'S.
But before I go, because I love you all so much, I will leave you with these.
First on the list is possibly the most passive aggressive post I have ever written. If you happen to know my ex, please pass along the message.
"7 Things I Desperately Want For My Ex, Even Though I Despise Him."
When I shared this next article on Facebook earlier this week, I got a lot of messages from you guys saying that this article was your absolute favorite of mine. While I love that you love it, it makes me sad that so many of us can relate.
"To My Children's Former Father, This Is What I Wish You Knew."
The following article really surprised me, I am SHOCKED that it took off the way it did.
"I Breastfed My Broke Friend's Baby - And Have Zero Regrets About It"
Next up, as always, a little something for my child-free readers. How about some animals?
"Do You Judge People Who Give Away Their Pets?"
Also, I recently started writing for a super neato website called "The Small Animal Channel," and had a goofy little post run there this week, so if you think rabbit tongues are funny, check this out! (Yep, you read that right).
"Ten Rabbits Who Speak Entirely With Their Tongues"
Alright everyone, have a great weekend and Happy St. Patrick's Day Weekend!!
