I'm BACK - did ya miss me....

Yeah yeah yeah - I know the last time I posted was last month...but the only thing ruling my house now-a-days is chaos...

you think I am kidding...in the last 24 hours this has been my life

  • Threw my back out - made emergency Chiropractic appointment
  • While on the way to the appointment with Third Child in tow various lights (parking brake, ABS, battery, etc...) begin going on and off - this is the same minivan we spent $1200 (yes $1200) on last week - we brush it off as a loose wire and say "Oh we'll take it in tomorrow and get it looked at...
  • Finish appointment go to car - won't start
  • Find sketchy looking dude in parking lot to give us a jump
  • Make plans...Third child drops me off at home for me to get 2nd car - pick up the girls and meet him at Goodyear to dump the van...WE WILL NOT TURN OFF THE CAR
  • Realize plan won't work when car makes weird noise and ups and dies while sitting at a red light
  • Realize that 3 Sheriff officers conversing in the parking lot of the 7-11 across the street could give a flying fig about us and get in their cars and drive off in different directions
  • Call Insurance company because we have towing through them...explain to the lady FOUR times I do not live in PA...(apparently she got me confused with her previous call)
  • Find out we have nice neighbors when one of them stops to help Third child move car to side of the road while wifey drives me to my house (While TC was waiting for the tow truck 4 other neighbors stop to see if he needs help...I LOVE my neighbors)
  • Get to daycare to find them feeding my children dinner (Got to love the hospitality of those Southern Baptists)
  • Go to Goodyear to pick up Third Child after he has been deposited there by the tow truck driver...
  • Get home to find a nice letter from the IRS stating we OWE $3300...apparently of allllll the things I could have screwed up on my taxes I somehow typed in BOTH of the girls SS # wrong...call and amazingly talk to a very nice man who gets everything straightened out (or at least I hope so...) - but we know know how much our children are really worth to us in the eyes of the federal govenment - $3300....
  • Go to slather Biofreeze on my back only to find the power of it has somewhat dissipated and all I am left with is a gooey substance on my back....
  • Toss and turn all night trying to find a position where I feel comfortable and it doesn't feel like 101 gnomes are stabbing me in the back with tiny pitchforks
  • Get a call from the school nurse who informs me that TW has somehow fallen on a game box and "hurt her privates" and upon looking in her underwear spots some blood...tell nurse it is ok if she takes a closer look and talk to TW on the phone and tell her it is OK for the nurse to touch her privates....

All of this since 11am yesterday morning....

OK be on the lookout - I am going to try my best to blog at least 3 x's per week... so the 4 of you that read my blog will have something to look forward too...

Good lord, woman!

Have you looked into the fact that you may have a gypsy curse on you?
