If I had a Top 10 list of the
Worst. Days. Ever…
Yesterday would have been on that list.
But it was really my fault.
I made an amateur strategical move.
My husband was out in his shop working.
And I went out there to ask him a question.
And I left 5 children, 7 years old and under, inside.
The quick question I had for my husband turned into a 5 minute conversation.
I was outside the garage door talking to him, and I could see in the window on the side of the house.
I didn’t see any kids running by the window screaming.
Or on fire.
So I pushed it just a little longer.
And then Number 5 came to the window.
She wasn’t crying.
So I kept talking.
Until Number 7 appeared.
With a razor in her hand.
I ran inside. No one was hurt.
I had averted a major razor disaster.
But my bathrooom was not unscathed.
Neither was my bedroom.
Number 6 and 7 had a little cover up extravaganza.
It was everywhere.
I almost lost it.
But I knew it was my own doing.
I took a gamble.
And I lost.
So while I tried to clean that up, the chain reaction began.
They seized the opportunity.
And the powdered sugar.
There are parts of my house that may just stay sticky forever.
So when I posted this on the facebook page:
The chances of me being sober tonight have officially gone from
And someone commented with this:
I never drink but always have fun… and a bonus I remember what happened so I can mess with the drunk people…. hahaha….
it kind of pissed me off.
Maybe it was a just an innocent remark.
I wasn’t exactly in the best frame of mind.
But I thought it was more of a judgement.
So I replied with this:
Feel free to come mess with me tonight 🙂
I don’t think she picked up on the sarcasm.
Since she replied with this:
I don’t think you live anywhere near me…
I also know she doesn’t read my blog.
when I posted this:
I have about 472 things to cross off my to do list.
2 kids aren’t home.
2 are downstairs watching a movie.
3 are sleeping.
Screw the list.
I’m taking a nap.
She replied with this:
Omg you have 7 kids??? Did not know that. Enjoy your nap
So, do I think using alcohol to deal with my problems is the smartest or healthiest decision?
But yesterday it sure as hell was.
So don’t judge.
Keep your sobering comments to yourself.
Come walk a mile in my shoes.
screw the mile.
I bet all it takes is a couple of steps here in my house to take you from this:
