What is with my Wednesday? I could star in my own version of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. I slept poorly, again, and then overslept, again. Which means we missed the school bus, again. Hopped in the shower only to have the little man barge in to deliver bad news. The damned cat had pooped on one of the couches. I took the time to properly clean that up and check the litter box, but that was fine (as the cat had pooped on the couch instead). Got in the car (without taking my claritin and have been sneezing my head off all day) and hit the highway only to get stuck in stop and go traffic thanks to multiple fender benders along the way. The boy was marked tardy and I got to work much later than I’d intended with crazy hair, a crick in my neck, a mysterious stain of mystery on my shirt and without my gym bag. And I discovered a long-time friend has de-friended me on Facebook. And everyone seems to want my money. And I only just remembered that there is a paper wasp nest forming IN MY BEDROOM WINDOW, on the second story above the window a/c unit. And oh yeah, my son is allergic. And and and and…sigh.

Five good things:

And before everything went to hell…the lad and I had some lovely pizza farm adventures last night.

    Synchronous kind of week.

    1. My sister just referenced A&TTHNGVBD the other day.

    2. I also have a wasp nest forming in my second story window, above my air conditioner. I am not allergic though so I keep peeking at it and then just putting the curtain back down, like it’s going to magically disappear rather than grow.

    Don’t you LOVE the extreme passive-aggression of FB-friend-removal? Since my episode with this phenomenon there is no way in hell I’m going to WI for Thanksgiving this year. I can’t imagine sitting across the table from my SIL, much less being in her home. Hella uncomfortable!

    I know I’m late commenting here (I am often late at reading things) but those chopsticks are awesome! I’m so sad they don’t come out until 2010 too. Wesley’s birthday is October and he would LOVE them. I also want that R2D2 cup for myself. ;)
