Karma is a bitch

I called in sick to work today. I told my boss that I was up since 4 a.m. with diarrhea. Can't prove that I wasn't right????

In reality, I wanted to get the house cleaned. No kids, no husband underfoot to make a mess as soon as I finished something. Vacuum, dust, do the windows, go through the massive piles of toys, straighten the bedrooms, hang my spiffy new mirrors in the bedroom...you know, spring cleaning type stuff.

I dropped the kids at daycare & went home. Pulled out all the supplies that I would need. I had just put the Prince Greatest Hits Volume II in the player when the phone rang.
It was Miss Amy at daycare. Will had just filled his diaper (again) with diarrhea & had vomited all over himself. I had to go pick him up.

The moral of the story is:

Don't fuck with Karma. She's a bitch & will get you back EVERY time.

2 in one day!

I found this particularly ironic...

The snow plows buried my car. I should have parked in the driveway, but I didn't think of it.

I just shovelled my car out of 3 or 4 inches of HEAVY, wet, slushy mess while listening to the Phillies play ball. The Phightin' Phils won 3-2 over the Yankees. C'MON already, Spring!!!


Our lil' leprechauns.

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!!

Mag's shirt reads I Like Irish Boys. She tells me that Daddy is an Irish boy, so is Will and Pop-Pop. Well, OK. I guess I like Irish boys too!

Busy Busy Busy

Blogger tells me that this is my 100th post. YIPEE!! I've bored all 5 of you silly 100 times!

ANYwhooo, in regards to the title, I'm one busy lady lately! This coming weekend I have 2 functions on Saturday. The Ancient Order of Hibernians St. Patrick's Day Parade steps off at 10 am. Joe is in the AOH, so the kids & I will be required to go stand on the sidewalk and watch a bunch of people that we don't know walk by. (I'm not real big on parades) After the aforementioned parade, there is a KICKASS partay from 1 5 pm Food, drink, Irish music, face painting & a magician for the kiddies & a lady who makes stuff out of balloons (do they have official names??)
THEEENNN, at 5 o'clock is a "scrutiny" at church (????) Father W. who teaches my R.C.I.A. class is presiding over mass that day and has asked us if we could make it to the mass. "Uh, no, sorry, Father, I'll be tying one on right around then" probably wouldn't look good in the eyes of the church so of course I said, "Sure! I can be there." Never giving another thought about the par-tay or the kids or how I'm getting to church or what I'm wearing to church!!! AAAACCCKKKK!!

Next weekend, I have a wedding to go to. Very informal, justice-of-the-peace-type thing, but I still would like to wear a dress or a nice skirt.

Following this is my baptism on Holy Saturday. I need to find a white (!!) dress/nice skirt-sweater-outfit. I have been to 3 malls already and there is not 1 WHITE dress out there. I asked a saleslady for help last night in Macy's and she said, "A WHITE dress??? In MARCH???" So I got all cocky with her & said, "What the hell, I can buy a friggin BIKINI in March, why not a white dress??!!" Bitch. I hate Macy's.

My brothers' wedding is the weekend after the baptism. Need something to wear to that. Maybe the same outfit from the wedding..... THEN, eventually, we are going to have to have Will baptized. I'll wear the outfit from the weddings. If I ever find one.

Looks like I'll be out tonight again, looking for a white dress. I wonder if I went to a bridal store??? Would they carry something that's not too, too dressy, like for a casual wedding???
There's a thought. I also know where on is. And right across the street is an Annie-Sez.
OK. I have a PLAN!!!! Go pick up kids, run home, change Will, run BACK out to the shopping center, try David's Bridal, then if THAT fails, try Annie-Sez, if THAT fails, go to Borders and buy a bunch of books, then stop at the wine store & pick up a big ol bottle of Merlot.
