so…
the other day…
on about the last five hours of our drive from Texas…back to Wyoming…
i felt about like this…

 

 


ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
i wanted to pull out some grass or MY hair!
that is one LONG drive!


FIRST… let me say… i REALLY AM a good mom!  :)
this was after a LONG day… LOADS of fun… no nap… and not getting HER way!
i am CONFIDENT you moms can SO relate!
she really is a doll!

i could probably count on one had the number of fits she’s had…
this was the BIGGY
she was just EXHAUSTED!
long story…
but basically what caused her meltdown…
was ME not sitting where SHE wanted me too on the four wheeler!
silly goose!
i just look at this and think…
she will be one STRONG & DETERMINED gal one day…
i am SO glad nonny got it on video…
AND
we could win some big bucks on America’s Funniest Video!
ya think!!!!!!!
i sure love my little drama queen!

 

we HAVE made it back to Wyoming…
and are SO looking forward to getting into our house!
we did hit a small delay… and will be closing a few days later… boo!
but… soon!
our “living out of a suitcase” days are coming to an end!
beside ourselves ready & excited!

looking forward to the LITTLE things that make BEing home so great!

 
big hugs to you
AND please tell me your kids have had a tantrum like this too before… PLEASE!

"you looked stressed"

crazy day yesterday...


last day of school... and all the silliness the goes with that! 
 

got pulled over by a motorcycle cop for speeding...
who proceeded to tell me "you look stressed"...
REALLLLLLLY...
i burst into tears...
such an utter embarrassing moment!
i was rushing home from the school swim party...
to get the house "presentable" for a showing that called!
they were sitting in our cul-de-sac & wanted to see the house ASAP!
the officer LET ME GO...
luckyyyyyyy...
he also proceeded to tell me i looked like i needed a Corona & lime...
oh yes he did!


i wish i had a video of me getting the house clean...
you would laugh your head off AT ME...
HYSTERICAL mad woman cutting some serious corners!


then picking up Campbell from school... someone ran into my suv...
we are fortunate... we're all okay...
it just WON'T be cheap for him to fix...
and a MAJOR inconvenience for my plate right now!  oh well!


i did not have a Corona... but i did enjoy a glass of wine last night...
it never tasted so good!


and one more thing...
speaking of EMBARRASING moments...
my neighbor's ten year old son just saw me naked...
did you HEAR me freak!
they were playing outside... when came into to use the potty...
where i was just getting out of the shower!
hellooooooo... you live right next door... you can pee there! 
needless to say... at my age...
i don't look all cute like my four year old TOPLESS!
bless his heart!


today... i am hoping for a mild one!
sipping on an extra cup of joe...
hoping to catch up on OODLES of paper work & email replies! 


here's to fab friday...
mild or wild... it should be a good one!
