Humor Me!

I don't know if I want to laugh or cry.

Tonight Mike arrived home and we had an early dinner, as I had a small list of things I wanted to do and get out of the house for a little fresh air.

1. Pick up laminate flooring offered on Freecycle.
2. Return shredded moldy cheese to Costco.
3. Return things to Fred Meyer's.
4. Get Coffee!

A bit before we leave the house, I like to make sure the babies are fed (nursed) and happy - there's nothing worse than 4 upset kiddos in the car! Well, Christian decided to throw up all of his dinner on my shirt and in my lap - I'm used to him spitting up, but he really threw-up! And was really crying. He was having a not-so-good time today, really fussy. I realized he hadn't pooped in a few days, so, I tried to help him with a suppository - it took 3 suppositories (and pee all over my couch and multiple layers of wipes) to make this little kiddo feel better.

Ok, so the throw-up, pee-pee and poop incidents were done with. Perhaps we could get in the car and get my list of things done?

I really wanted some Coffee, really bad, you know, the $4 coffee that that I like to treat myself to about once a month when I can make it out of the house, and we passed about 4 coffee houses, and they were all closed! I ended up compromising and getting a drip coffee at Breeze-in, but was so out of my element that I didn't know what I was doing and didn't really get what I want. Coffee Flop!

So, we did end up making it downtown to pick up the laminate flooring pieces, but it didn't fit in my Explorer! Ugh. Duh! I hate wasting gas! Now Mike's got to take his truck tomorrow to pick it up.

On the way home we drove past Costco, which was closed as well, LOVELY!, so Mike will have to exchange the moldy cheese tomorrow, or maybe Saturday, whenever they end up opening!

Wow, this evening has gone smoother that I expected (hah!) - at least the kiddos were all content (and sleepy).

At least the last stop at Fred Meyer's was a success and all items we wanted to return we were allowed to return (now we had a whopping $13 extra to spend) and I really need another shower rod (which I will explain in the next post).

I Hope that your New Year's Eve was just as exciting as mine!

Well, I guess since the kids weren't crying, it'd be best for you to laugh. But if they were crying, then I guess you could have just joined in with them! HA!
I understand your frustration with places being closed on New Year's Eve. I was running around at 2 pm trying to get some pre-wedding errands done and was surprised that there were so many places already closed at that time.
Hey, if you're ever wanting a good coffee and it's too late for Heritage try Waffle House or Vintage Fair. They are usually open later into the evening. (Except they might have been closed already that night too.)
