Wowsers! Thank you for making me not regret quite as much the fact that I don't have children (or a spouse, but that's a different matter altogether).
And in the spirit of the holiday, and of your wants, this is for you: http://www.landofcadbury.ca/lo/mompop/products/cremeeggs.htm
Hope you survive the day on the couch..you deserve it. Had hoped to hear the Snow Drop baby was coming. She has been on my mind since your post about giving her the shawl. What a wonderful gift, to start life wrapped in love and have that beauty with you always. She surely will wear it on her wedding day!
I was "shushed" at work yesterday for laughing so loud while reading your blog (I have a very loud laugh- I wouldn't be surprised if you could hear it in Canada). Today, I resorted to giggles... my head almost burst.
Meghan's got the right idea.
Oh, Stephanie. What a terrible way to start the day -- and all before morning caffiene, too!
At least you got a funny blog post out of it. :)
Thank you, thank you, for the much needed laugh. My darling 8th grader just called, begging to come home from school. I have a fever, he moans. Your temp is 97.4, I remind him. Isn't that a fever? he whines. No school, no camping this weekend, I firmly admonish. Screw it, he thinks sulkily. Love dem teenagers!
Sorry for your morning... but you are doing so well. Can I send you another teen girl?
You didn't have to hide any bodies. You are a saint! LOL!
What a rotten start to the day. The knitting Godess is telling you that your place is on the couch...don't leave it.
On the PTA types. I always used my Mom's method (if you run, they just hunt you down). They would open their mouths to ask her to do something, and she would look them in the eye, and before they could speak, say, "you want me to pour tea don't you? I can't possibly. I don't own a hat" Made no sense whatsoever, they all thought she was nuts, and avoided her like the plague. Which was her goal.
The difference between you and me - when I sit down to have aforementioned chocolate (and a lot of it too, you can count on that), the pager would go off and off I'd go for that hour long drive. Hope you get to sit for a little while. Try not to stare at the ceiling too much.
I agree with LisaK: if you didn't have to hide any bodies, you ARE a saint. Hope your day's getting (a lot) better!
What a morning! It definitely sounds like a day for couch, chocolate, knitting, and tea. (Maybe that's why I have a hard time destressing. I have no couch!)
You describe it so eloquently! Find that chocolate and DON'T SHARE!
Growing up, our telephone number was one digit different than the taxi company. Terrible! My folks recently retired to Florida. Now, however, their telephone is one digit away from the Domino's pizza AND one digit away from the hospital. Talk about crappy. I'll have to share your pager spam story. They will definitely have sympathy!
Oh dear, I just laughed so hard that I was sitting here with tears running down my face. Now my kids really think I'm crazy! Thanks for reminding me that other peoples' lives are nuts too. You write very well and your blog is a lot of fun to read. I hope the snowdrop baby arrives soon.
Oh. My. God. And all you want is chocolate? I'd be reaching for the tequila myself.
Oh, you poor harlot, you! Sounds like tea and sympathy is in order. In fact, I think I'll make some tea and set up camp on the sofa in your honor!
My folks' phone number was two of the digits reversed from that of a large department store in WashDC. Dad would answer the phone, and to "GIVE ME SECURITY!" he would sweetly respond, "Why, sir? Are you insecure?"
Do you prefer milk or dark chocolate? Personally, I buy cocoa by the 25 lb bag. Seriously.
Beeper spam is the worst kind of spam. Been there! You post had me laughing. Hope the rest of your day was less eventful.
Claudia, if I wan't on-call (and if I didn't want to be the kind of mother other mothers say "drinks in the afternoon") I'd be corked.
Alison, I prefer dark chocolate...although, any port in a storm.
My mother had a number here in Toronto that was two digits reversed of a local pizza joint. On bad days, she used to take their orders.
Jon? Thanks for the tip.
I am thankful I found this blog! I am thankful I have eaten my way through half a bag of chocolate today. I am VERY thankful I don't have children.....and sympathize regarding the hairball.
I don't miss my pager one bit, and pager spam is the definition of Evil. Personally Steph, I don't feel the need to go to such extremes to earn myself a day on the couch knitting and eating chocolate. But if you need a chocolate delivery, I'm always happy to oblige!
Dearest Harlot, what is your email address? I cannot send you chocolate without it. Maybe its on your blog, and I am braindead...
I hope today is going a little better...
And all this before 9 a.m. sounds like chocolate is the only cure! Thanks for sharing your delightful view on a chaotic morning!
