Ebb and Flow

This week has continued to ebb and flow, mixing good and bad.

Tuesday, it seemed like I was cleaning up pee puddles and poop piles off the floor everytime I turned around. I know, what did I expect, getting a new puppy and all? But she's been sooo good! Not only that, I was cranky and suffered from a headache all day (I blame it on the muffin I ate after donating blood, since it had been 2.5 weeks since I had any carbs and sugar).

Yesterday, however was a good day. It started when I logged on and saw MA choose red (or Brown) to fill U.S. Senate seat. Yay, MA. Then I had a relaxing day, despite being called to pick up my daughter from school because she had a headache (side note, she seems to be suffering from chronic headaches, complaining of having them often :( ) Laundry was for once, all washed and dried (I just have one basket to fold before the kids put it away). I cleaned and de-cluttered some junk. And the puppy had one accident yesterday. Unfortunately, that accident happened to be on Moe's backpack :(

Not paying attention, I tossed Moe's backpack into the washer and then dryer. Like I had done so many times in the past. I pulled it out this morning and..... there were holes in it where it looked like the material burned in the dryer. So yeah, I totally ruined her backpack. Which I know I've washed like that before. I asked her what type of backpack she wanted this morning and she told me "purple and blue like the Yankees". Seriously, doesn't this kid know she's a born and bred New Englander? (side note: we really don't follow any sports teams.)

And then, of course, 7:30 this morning, Meenie informs me she can't find any pants to wear to school. She got stuff on one pair the day before which no biggie, after all, we have at least two pairs of dress pants for school. Only I cannot find the second pair anywhere. So I had to hurry up and wash and dry her pants for school. I'm sure they were probably still damp since it takes forever! But whatever, they made it to school on time and in pants.

But, I refuse to let the horrible no good nasty morning get to me. I'm drinking my latte and regrouping. And then I'm going to have a good day.

And since I totally missed out on delurking day because, well because, *insert some lame as excuse here*, your job is to delurk and tell me something. It can be your favorite sports affiliation, where you get your favorite latte's (or any coffee) - I prefer Baker's Dozen (local place) over any of the big chain's, or what you do to de-stress. Tell me anything, just leave a comment :)
