Must be Thursday

We had a crazy day around here. No matter what I did, I was behind. I barely ate breakfast by lunchtime. Then we had an appointment to get little K's (2) cast off - yes, she broke her elbow three weeks ago, but all better now. The appointment got moved (by their office -at the last minute) from early afternoon to smack in the middle of naptime. Then I had to take ALL the kiddos with me - seems my built-in-babysitter that I've been waiting fourteen years (!) to enjoy is having trouble controlling the former BLT (a.k.a. A) when he's not asleep. So unless I wanted another broken bone to occur in my absence... they all piled in the overcrowded waiting room and joined in the fun. hooray. :)

The check-in lady was gruff, the x-ray tech chided me for K's paci, and the doc missed the day in med school when they handed out bedside manner. Oh, and I had a headache all day.

Relief came after dinner when I was able to get to the Y and burn off some stress and then come home and LMAO watching The Office.

I'm sharing all of this because it gives me an excuse to use my favorite new quote:
"This must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays."
-(Arthur Dent in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.)

I'd laugh but there is nothing funny and I can relate all too well, well minus the extra 2 kiddos :)

oh, I think it's a little funny, that's partly why I posted it -sometimes there's nothing to do but laugh! :)

What's LMAO?

Oh, dear. Bless you. I think one of my worst fears is having to take all of my kiddos to a crowded waiting room. And I only have 3! And I've had those critical paci comments before, too (we didn't drop pacis until late), but it's OK. :)

Hope your Friday was better.

Oh yes. I know these days. The Thursday quote is perfect.
