I feel like I haven’t been on here for a while. Tension has been high in our house the last few weeks. We’ve had lots going on busy lives, unexpected expenses, somewhat not feeling well. I’ve been getting loads of headaches. I used to get them a lot but since running I haven’t had one for a long time, but before Christmas I started getting them again and have had a headache every couple of days. Anyway. All those things combined…. I’m short on patience (did I spell that right Greg?) okay on with my story.
So this week we have snow….. oooooohhhh scary……. I’m from Alberta……. nuff said… snow…and -5 that’s a nice day…… but my kids, well they feel just because there is snow on the ground they should automatically have the day off school. I contemplated allowing them to skip doing homework on Monday night thinking it might be a snow day, but luckily I made them do it anyway and sure enough we had school on Tuesday…. WELL… that damn near caused a revolt… Katelyn threatened to walk off the job, Mckennah refused to get dressed and Matthew rolled on the floor moaning. I yelled.. I screamed, I threatened them with everything they hold dear and got them off to school.
So this morning, it looked a little more snowy out there, but checked the school website and sure enough school was on. Everyone knew better than to pull that crap with me again so everyone got ready and was pretty quiet about it. Got everyone in the car and the morning went fairly smoothly until we got in the car. I mention a few days back our lease was up on our car, so we got a new car, we decided to go a little bigger so it could fit us all a little better. So last night Greg got the garage all organized so I could park in the garage with the new car. This morning I got everyone in the car and started to pull out and hit something. Looked behind me again and the garage door was part way down….. What the…. how did I miss that? So I pulled forward and pushed the button to get it back up and it wasn’t budging. What the. So I got out of the car walk around and look up and when Katelyn closed her door that red rope that hangs down so you can unlatch the door was stuck in her door and when I went to back up it unlatched and as I moved back the door closed. Knocked the door out of the track and I had to figure out a way to get the garage door closed so I could get the kids to school. I forced it down, kicked it, swore kicked it again, got in the car, swore some more, then started driving. Then I swore some more. It took me 45 min to drive the kids a normal 10 min drive. We were late leaving and now we are driving 3 km an hour. Come on people its just snow….. got to school, got a guy to come fix the garage.. checked the car for scratches, and now my cat is trying to bring a dead bird into the house… omg its in the house, omg its under the….. WHERE IS MY HUSBAND…. HE’S EATING IT……. WHAT DO I DO?….. IT’S GONE…. HE ATE IT… I’m sure reading my blog helps you to appreciate your lives all that much more! I’m glad I can help Cheers to the weekend.. what’s that? It’s only Wednesday ? Cheers anyway!
