Let’s recap the day, shall we?
1. Frank came to school telling everyone and their brother about his new shotgun. He failed to mention it was plastic and used plastic pellets until AFTER the girls ran crying to the bathroom.
2. You know how most kids in kindergarten follow the rules? Well, apparently today was OPPOSITE DAY.
3. I drove home at the speed of light after picking up Golden boy to grab Munchie for an important meeting. We drove AGAIN at the speed of light to make it to the vet so that Munchie could have his jewels removed. Apparently it was Munchie’s lucky day, as I got horribly lost and couldn’t FIND THE COUNTRY VET. A half hour later we called it quits and I decided to call them tomorrow and beg them to reschedule.
4. After dropping off the cat at home, we managed to help the DOG run away, and spent another 45 minutes driving my brother’s hundred year-old Honda Accord through fields of FIVE FEET HIGH weeds of some kind behind my house. I’m sure if you had been watching you would have seen just the antenna of the car zig-zagging above the fields of grass. We went home, only to find him in the yard COVERED in poop that was NOT his own. Again. For the second day straight.
5. With 30 minutes until Golden Boy’s father was to pick him up, I hooked up a printer, googled facts about plants, and helped him finish THREE PROJECTS that would surely raise his science grade from the bottom of the barrel to perhaps the middle of the barrel. (Waiting for the last minute only makes life exciting, right?) I guess homework and checking on grades is something only a mother helps with. (That’s about all I can talk about here. I think.)
6. While the images for his projects were printing and Bitchy was SHOWERING, I loaded three card tables and a huge canopy folding tent into what USED TO BE MY car, so she could return it to her friend’s mother.
And the craziness that was this day? The incredible WONDERFUL craziness that was this day?
It has reminded me that life is good. Life is wonderfully, deliciously, fantastically good.
