Two more days till school starts... and I just found out yesterday that I have strep throat. High temp, white sores and all!
Yup. How awesome is that? ugggh
My girls are at a pretty awesome age and they just do their own thing, but it's hard to completely zone out and sleep when you know you have kids at home.
Luckily my Mom took the girls last night so I could get to a doctor and gather prescriptions... but I hear my kiddos downstairs now, and I'm pretty sure that they're making their own quesadillas for lunch, which means there's going to be remaining shards of a Costco sized bag of colby jack cheddar sprinkled on pretty much every surface of my kitchen counters and floor.
I LITERALLY watched one of my girls pinch the smallest handful of cheese to pop in her mouth the other day, while simultaneously spinning and humming a song, (welcome to my house) and you would have thought she had acquired special shredded cheese multiplying powers. Cheese EVERYWHERE people.I still wonder if any of that "snitch" actually made it to her lovely pie hole.
I'm just grateful that I GET to be home and don't have to go to work outside the house and feel this way today. Strep is seriously so awful.
It's a funny thing how we take something as simple as swallowing for granted.
My girls want new backpacks for school, and I told them no.
Their old backpacks are JUST fine, and basically look brand new.
Plus, I honestly don't have ANY extra money for back to school stuff right now. Am I alone here? I can't even afford paint for my dumb entryway. Why can't we all just wear our Summer clothes for the first couple months of school? It's still blazing hot, and if they're good enough for Instagram pictures with filters thrown over them, then they're good enough for 6 hours of sweaty recesses, dirty classroom floors and messy cafeteria lunches.
Can I get an amen!?
I will definitely be searching for the most worthy "back to school outfit - that was probably worn last year" for that traditional first day of school photo.
I figure if I wash my picks on the hottest setting in my machine, and actually get an iron out... they'll basically look brand new, right?
I'm going to have to slowly stockpile jeans and long sleeved shirts, jackets and sweaters as the paychecks come in.
Speaking of paychecks, why is it that they always tend to come right AFTER you really need them?
Well, I'm off to ...
you thought I was going to say "to clean up spilled cheese" didn't you?
I'm off to TAKE A NAP.
Hope your Monday is rockin' as hard as mine! **insert sarcasm here**
P.S. - My kid are getting weirder as the Summer drags out. And I'd love to say that this "traveler in a suitcase" game is a new thing... but alas, it is not. The breathing straw just is. Smart kid.
You should see the twins trying to haul the "traveler" down the stairs. I always just walk away at that point. #mypoorwalls #mypoortraveler #oneoftheirfavoriteactivities
