I opted out of the shower portion of the day, just didn’t have the energy (nor did I care); and frankly I’ve taken a shower every day lately and I deserve a break. Luckily before 7AM my peace and quiet came to a screeching halt, I guess I’ve had too much morning time to myself lately. Good thing he doesn’t want breakfast yet, because I really don’t feel like getting up right now.
|If you're just going to go back to sleep, stay in bed.|
I can tell already, this is going to be a trying day. I can feel it. I was going to wear yoga pants today no balance out not showering, but I decided on a velour track suit instead. (Not far off really)
Maizie miraculously got ready in less than ten minutes. Since I had a bunch of errands to do this morning, we drove the two blocks to school. We somehow were almost late, but made it on time. Three days in a row, this has to be a new record.
Stella and I head off on our long list of errands. We need to finish up Halloween accessories before the big party tomorrow night. From the looks of things, Sandy may take a bite out of Halloween, so they better enjoy themselves.
We starteded at BJs and I needed to get a temporary card because mine disappeared from my wallet. This sort of thing happens all the time, one of the hazards of living in a haunted house.
Stella and I went on an incredible journey.
|I should really stop and get gas, but do I have time? So much to do (before noon)|
|This truck was spewing "waste juice" all over the highway and my car EEEWWWW!|
|I mat not have time to stop, but I definitely don't have time to run out.|
|On the hunt for Captain America.|
|This was Stella's impression of the Walmart bathroom, she's the one that REALLY had to go.|
We went to Hobby Lobby to get more tulle for Stella’s costume, but it didn’t feel the same as the other tulle, so I didn’t get it. Instead we went back to Jo-ann’s where the original came from, you know what that deal is don’t you? (I told you it was going to be a tiring day.) They were sold out!
At that point, my “extra ankle” hurt so bad I didn’t care if we got it or not. So home we go, besides Teddy had to get to school.
Ted was a sweetie and brought him to school before he went to a meeting.
I finally get the candy corn costume finished. Thank goodness.
Ted came home sooner than expected, so Stella and I head out for a few more errands. We obviously need more tulle.
|She was tired, but was given the option of staying home with Ted, she refused.|
|Off to get the tulle.|
|Had to buy accessories for my costume.|
We meet Ted and the kids at the play ground. (Left my phone/camera in the car) Head home and Maizie tries on her costume and then Captain America tries on his. He may have gotten the last one in his size.
|This is one happy little boy.|
Since its tuna salad week, Maizie hasn’t been eating anything (I mean NOTHING) at school. The only thing she has while she’s there is a juice box and a milk. So tonight I made her favorite…spanikopita (I didn’t really make it, it’s frozen) and salad.
Showers went smoother than usual, good thing because I am exhausted and I still need to finish Holly Golightly’s skirt.
Kids in bed. Check!
Stella’s costume completed. Now that my own personal Project Runway challenge is complete, I am going to sit on the couch and see if the All-Stars can handle the pressure (and to see how bitchy Ivy’s going to be).
Head on over to Adventuroo for more Wednesdays.
