Just one of those days

Yesterday was plain awful. Isn't that how the song goes?

My day started with this:


and also this:

That is the result of pushing the snooze two extra times and your children not getting the memo. They usually play in their room for a little while in the morning so I thought I was safe. Nope.

These pictures are after 30 minutes of cleaning and I didn't show you the tub because well its was full of paint and painted children.

Here is what I learned yesterday morning:

  • water based poster paint is the only paint that should be in a home with children
  • stainmaster carpets are THE ONLY WAY TO GO with children
  • Ripping out the carpet in the masterbath and replacing with tile was a great decision
  • SEAL YOUR GROUT SEAL SEAL SEAL (a lesson learned too late)
  • shop vacs are your best friend with paint in carpet
  • 20 extra minutes of sleep might cost you 4 hours of hard labor cleaning
Yeah pretty much a bad morning. I went out for some retail therapy after this and that seemed to make it worse. It's Alexander's birthday tomorrow and I went to pick up some spiderman cupcakes with rings. That is all he wanted for his class oh and hats. I had the hats went to smiths they said they were out of spiderman rings. No big deal I will get the rings from Walmart. Walmart is all out of rings. Target doesn't carry rings. Albertsons is out of rings. WHAT IS GOING ON. Nobody has rings. So I run to Party City and they don't have any rings either!! Who is buying up all of these:

So I finally go to Party City and find these:

I bought 18 of them and called it a day. That took 5 hours with Jamison and Eva. FIVE HOURS. But when I drove home I was grateful to come home and be home. So much for retail therapy more like retail trauma.

I hope your days don't start off like that.

The bathroom is all clean the paint came right out of the carpet but the rugs are lost. Can't win em all. Heres to tomorrow a much brighter and warmer day!
