How many weeks has it been since I've done a random post? I don't know.
I have a lot of things I was going to talk about. But everyone else already beat me to the punch, and said it much more eloquently than I could.
For instance, I recently had a minor flood in my house. But, it never occurred to me to name the incident after a famous fountain in Vegas. Apparently, Motherboard and I ordered from the same menu this week.
Last Monday, after taking the kids swimming, I let them all have a bath in my jetted tub. During which, I was teaching my brother, Charlie, a piano lesson. Suddenly, TJ came running into the living room, dripping wet, saying I needed to turn off the water, and that the tub was overflowing. I told him to just go turn it off, thinking it was just the faucet (not Farrah). I went in, and the jets had been turned on, and were shooting EVERYWHERE! Water shot all the way into the back of my closet (that's probably about 10 feet!) All of my shoes were filled with water. There was about 2 inches of standing water on the floor. The carpet in my closet was soaked. Oh, and there was water leaking into the smoke alarm, and through the ceiling in my basement. Yeah. I was just way to pissed off to think of anything funny to say about it. Still am.
Because right now, I have a disassemble smoke alarm, so if our house burns down, we'll all die, and I have no carpet in my closet because it wouldn't dry, and it started to stink, so we had to pull it out. And my kids have more than once stepped on the tack strip and poked their feet. I'm still pretty peeved about the whole ordeal. So, no funnies here.
I was also going to talk about how I'm already sick of hearing about Michael Jackson, and how I'm bugged because I couldn't watch 30 Rock reruns last night because the damn Today show was too busy reporting who knows what about the Freak. And how he totally stole Farrah Fawcett's thunder. I mean, she died first. It should've been her day! Not his.
Yeah, but then Melissa wrote a whole post about it. And it's just way funnier that I could even think up.
I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Well, not me, really, but my kids did, and that just put me on the wrong side. I slept in. My visiting teachers were scheduled to come over at 10:00 this morning. My house was a disaster. Peter decided to have a melt down. Something about how I helped her wash her hands in my bathroom, but she went potty in the other bathroom. (Yeah, I think she might have OCD. I'm worries). So, in reaction to Peter's meltdown, I kind of, sort of blew my top. Five minutes before the VT-ers were supposed to be there. I sincerely hope they weren't standing on my porch waiting for me to stop screaming at my child before they rang the doorbell. So, the last thing I wanted this morning was for some of my neighbors to come in to my chaotic home and see what a train wreck I was. For the record, I don't like to pretend. What you see is what you get, and it is incredibly hard for me to be pretend to be polite when I feel like screaming. But, I still invited them in. And vented a little.
Can I just say, it seems my visiting teachers always come at moments like these. And I'm pretty sure it is divine intervention. It was just what I needed. To be forced to sit down and have a conversation. It really calmed me down, and calmed my children down. My visiting teachers are two amazing women. I love them dearly. It is obvious that they had the spirit with them today. I know they don't read my blog, but I just want the world to know who much I love and appreciate them.
