days off.

No school on Thursday or Friday...



Thursday:

* took Lawson to pre-school
* Sophie to Jessi's
* spent the rest of the day shopping and having fun with my mom!
* realized that evening that I totally spaced on ballet. Oops. Luckily, Sophie didn't realize anything and I am not about to point it out to her!


Friday:

* Corey up and around early to head to the farm and meet his new cows that are being delivered from Tulsa this morning
* kids and I sleep late
* they will spend the day at Jessi's (celebrating 2 birthdays!)
* I will spend the day working on the 17 things on my to-do-list

This was the plan, anyway.


What actually happened...

* Corey up and around early to head to the farm and meet his new cows that are being delivered from Tulsa this morning
* kids and I sleep late
* heading out the door to Jessi's, I realize... my keys... are in my mother's van. Crap.
* call Corey (who has the only extra key to my car). He is already halfway to the farm and agrees to turn around and bring me keys, but with a loving little warning that if he misses the "cow guy" he is not going to be happy. Crap.
* call Jessi (because the kids are obviously not going to be there on time) and do some brainstorming/thinking out loud with her (and some laughing about the whole situation, because really, you just have to laugh)
* hang up with Jessi and wait for her to call back
* run to the car and try the key that I found, even though I'm sure it's a key to Corey's truck. Crap, it is.
* Jessi calls back.
* call Corey and tell him to turn around and head back towards the farm (actually, it was more convince him to go back towards the farm... see how much he loves me?)
* Feed kids breakfast (since they have missed breakfast at Jessi's)
* wait on "NeNa" (Jessi's mom and our neighbor) to stop by after dropping Lilly (Jessi's daughter) off at pre-school.
* say good-bye and wave as NeNa delivers my children to daycare. (love her. thank you, thank you!) (fyi: on any other day, this wouldn't have been a big deal, I would have just kept the kids here and not sent them to Jessi's. But... one of the birthdays they are celebrating today is Sophie's. She kind of wants to be there for that.)
* blog about this so in 5 years I will be able to remember this day and laugh about it
* now I am going to enjoy a bowl of Trix, a big mug of hot chocolate, look at my long list of things to do today and figure out a way to do some of them without a vehicle.
* and figure out a way to get my kids home from daycare at 4:30.

It's gonna be a busy day. :)

That's twice now ! I'm thinking maybe an extra car key is in order.
