Ktjrdn and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

I woke up in the morning to the sound of Anya yelling. She had woken up and wanted to be fed. It was 5:20 which is the time I was supposed to get in the shower. She wouldn't go back to sleep. I could tell then that is was going to be a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

Rob took her upstairs so I could take a shower. I stripped down and stepped on the scale. I hate scales.  I think I'll stop eating.

Anya and I woke Ally up and got ready to leave. Anya wouldn't lie still for a diaper change. Ally tried to help and almost dropped her toy on Anya's head. I started off the morning yelling at the kids. It would definitely be a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

Maybe I should send them to Austrailia.

I spent the whole day blowing my nose and coughing so hard my lungs hurt. I had a doctor's appointment at 1:30. it's a pain in the ass to get across town, so I left early. Even if I got there too early, I could work on my crocheting. I sat in the wating room for 30 minutes crocheting. Then I sat in the dr office for 15 more. just before the dr actually finally decided to see me, I realized I had made a mistake in the crocheted name and had to rip out 6 rows.

The dr gave me a prescription for antibiotic for my bronchitits and Nasonex nasal spray. He told me to keep taking the Claritin like I have been. Uh? It hasn't been working, obviously. I asked him to refer me to an allergist. My doctor is an idiot. Maybe I should send him to Austrailia.

When we picked the kids up, I found Anya already whining. Their lunch sucked, so she was hungry. My head hurt. This was the last thing I needed. If Anya didn't eat lunch, odds are very good Ally had less. Great. Can I go to sleep yet?

Had to pick up our prescriptions at Walgreens. Rob parked the truck. I told him I had already dropped them off, so they'd be ready - we could use the drive thru. My Nasonex rang up at $110. What?! why? the lady was an idiot. She didn't know. gave a couple reasons before finally figuring out that he wrote it for 3 months at a time and they filled all three. Still. It cost too much. While I was trying to process it all Rob was trying to talk to me and complain about how it would've been simpler to go in than to try to do this through the drive-thru. Thanks, hon. Your bitching is making it even easier. Not. Finally had them not fill it and called the dr to have him write something less expensive. Argued with husband all the way home about how I "made him" drive thru. Uh, I made a suggestion. He was free to say no if he had a better idea.

Maybe I'll send him to Australia.

It's dance night. Crap. Rob asked me if it were possible to leave Ally for class and go back to pick her up. He didn't want to listen to Anya cry all night. Me either, dear. but Ally's not old enough for that yet, and she's certainly not well-behaved wnough. So Rob decided to take Anya shopping instead to shut her up. shopping for fishing stuff. Great. Just what we need. Another $45.61 worth of fishing crap. Stop spending money already!! Anya screamed the whole time. Serves him right. He never remembers that he's doing something specifically to keep her occupied. If it's not working, quit and do something else. He went shopping so she wouldn't be bored at home. It obviously wan't working, but now he was committed to shopping. That wasn't the original point of the excursion. So Rob was in a crappy mood. It was almost the end of a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Thank God.

I had to put Ally in time-out twice during dance. It could have been more but my head hurt too much. I wanted to go to bed.

I met him at the dealership to drop off the truck, whose alarm system has been screwing up. On the way over, my contacts decided they don't like me and tried to make me crash. Ow. My eyes hurt. "Ally, stop talking for 5 seconds please" Why can the kid not shut her mouth? When I got there, Rob wasn't there. He went to the wrong dealership. He called me and asked where I was. I explained and he argued with me a bit then figured I was right, but did he tell me that? no. Bastard. He can join everyone else in Australia.

Ally wouldn't shut up. She had to go straight to bed with a spanking. Anya went to bed too. I sat on the couch and tried to make my brain stop. Oh sweet blessed sleep. Thank god the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day was over.

So what did I do first thing this morning? Slammed my thumb in the car door. Fuck. This better not be another one.

Oh, Katie.  I am so sorry!  That really is a bad day. 

Maybe you should go to Australia and leave everyone else home.  :)  

I have thought several times that I might not want to pursue the whole speech thing with Emily for the very reason that once she has words, she might NEVER shut up again.  Of course, its not like she's quiet now.  She has started on the "mama mama mama mama MAMA MAMA!!" phase and when that doesn't work, she switches to the ultra-high frequency shriek that makes every dog in a 5 mile radius start howling.  Lovely...  :)  

Hope your thumb is ok.

Man, that stinks Katie. That was my favorite book as a child though so this post made me smile.  Don't we all have horrible days like this? I get it, I really do.  Better today I hope?
