We have definitely had a serious case of the Mondays around here.
Last night Reece woke up saying his ear hurt and ended up in the bed with me, right next to me. Carson also woke up wanting to be comforted at 6am. Needless to say I did not want to get out of the bed this morning, and I didn’t until 7:50am! So I went with the no make up, “I look like I worked out but really just went to the grocery store” look today.
And as usual on school days I had to wake up Sarah Ann and Reece to get them ready. But I also had to wake Carson up today. I just picked him up out of his crib and put him straight in the car in his pajamas when it was time to leave for school, which was way later than we are suppose to leave by the way!
Next I couldn’t find my debit card, and I had no idea where I left it. Luckily I had our credit card while we went grocery shopping and to get the oil changed. After searching the house and no debit card to be found, I called the bank on the way to pick up the big kids from preschool to cancel it and get a new one. By chance I asked Sarah Ann if she knew where my debit card was, and she told me exactly where it was! Too bad I had already cancelled it!
Monday also brought rain with it, and of course it started raining even harder right when it was time to pick up the kids from school. Good thing they all like the rain! And that I wore my hair in a ponytail today!
We spent our rainy lunch time at McDonald’s with friends; that was a bright spot in the day! Carson needed his diaper changed and not a single mom in the group had wipes in McDonald’s. They were all in the car. I’ve had a kid in diapers for the last 5 and 1/2 years. I should know by now to always have wipes!
Whoa! What a day!
But there is also so much to be thankful for…
Reece was feeling all better this morning. We enjoyed a fun lunch out with friends on a rainy day. And I got a sweet tea too! We were kept safe while driving in the rain. Our fridge and pantry are now fully stocked again, which makes everyone in the house happy! And this afternoon was really, really smooth. We did our afternoon work, had a dance party and fashion show in the living room, ate breakfast for dinner, played with Daddy, and took an evening walk in the rain before bed.
And tomorrow is a brand new day! And His mercies are new every morning! Thank you, Jesus!
