Here I am at 11:06 pm and I am not even close to being done for the day. As I predicted in my last blog post, I spent the entire day running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Got up this morning, started laundry, got dressed, fed the kiddos, and off we went. First stop was the dreaded financial aid department. I HATE that place with a passion. Thank God I was only handing some paperwork in. That meant I only had to stand in line for an hour. If I had needed some actual financial aid counseling, I would have waited in line for an hour to sign in, then sat in the smelly waiting room for another 2 hours, holding my breath every time the loud speaker clicked on, hoping my name was the next to be called. After that, it was back to the bookstore to purchase 4 USED books for a grand total of $311.87. USED BOOKS!!!! Ridiculous.
Then it was to McDonald's to feed my children a nutritious lunch of fat, grease, cholesterol, caffeine, and sugar. After lunch on the run, we headed to the bank and the post office, then we were off to my mom's house. I spent the afternoon photographing art (that's a whole other blog post). Then we ran to Lowe's where my wonderful, beautiful, loving, precious mommy bought me a DISHWASHER!!!!! I want to scream it from the room tops! I HAVE A DISHWASHER. No, it's not installed yet, we haven't even picked it up from Lowe's yet, but I have a receipt that says it belongs to me and that is good enough to make me giddy! Now, I might actually be inspired to cook. You see, I loathe hand washing dishes. In fact, I would rather go hungry that have to hand wash dishes. Unfortunately, my children have to eat, so I've spent the last several months letting dishes pile up in my sink. So my lovely mother (whom I adore, by the way) decided to buy me an early Christmas present! God Bless that woman!
We ate dinner at her house, then headed back home. I put the kids to bed about 9:30 and they still aren't sleeping. I can hear some screaming, them some crying, then "Mom! She's kicking me!" or "Mom! Bubba slapped me!". Then every 15 minutes or so, one of them will sneak out hear, hoping I wont notice. Dream on!
I still need to do laundry, wash dishes (damn I wish my new toy was here already), clean the house, and pack. Did I mention that the kids and I are going down to Mobile tomorrow when I get out of school? Actually, we were planning on going down there tonight, but then school snuck up on me. So I put it off until tomorrow. Since Jimmy is working down there, we are going to spend a few days down there with him. My sister in law is off tomorrow, so we're gonna hang out with her. I was planning on having everything done tonight, so we could leave as soon as I get home, but it's looking like I'm gonna have to put some of my to do list off until tomorrow. It's already 11:30 and I have to leave the house at 8:00 am to go to hell, uh, I mean school.
Alright, I guess with that I will close this blog post. I have way more important things to be doing than blogging to all of you people.
