but before i get into it, i apologize for the completely inappropriate lack of capital letters and punctuation other than periods. the left shift key on my keyboard isn't working and i don't know how to use the one on the right. so there.
the baby slept well, hb slept well, wee man and miss o slept well, the mister slept well. i slept on the edge of the bed, carefully poised to neither fall off the bed into the co-sleeper nor roll to my right on to hb. who has claimed my bed for his own. meh.
miss o got on the bus, no muss, no fuss.
i got a little work done, and even showered. because my scalp had this itch thing going on and it was fifteen kinds of wrong and nasty. possibly sixteen kinds, but i was so grossed out i stopped counting. or ninety kinds. so. ick.
we went to the playground, i had some adult conversation... no, not adult-themed conversation, just a conversation with another adult. wee man can do the monkey bars pretty much by himself. and hb can jump off things onto my head. it's awesome. and elliott... well, he can sleep in the hotslings like a champion.
we went to the grocery store and i bought reese's pb cups and skittles in the bulk bags. for myself. the children are under the impression that i am going to share but that belief just adds them to the growing numbers of misguided youth in america.
we stopped to see the mister at work. that was nice. he told me i was the hot wife. i was having good hair today. because i washed it. that always helps. and also it was about 80 percent humidity, so my hair was about 80 percent curly. yes, the correlation is that spot on.
we got home. whilst i took elliott in the house, i heard the garbage truck. a certain person cough-mister-dayton-cough did not pull the waste management container out to the street. of course, i'm just calling it a waste management container because it manages our waste, not because it's necessarily the company who fetches our waste. cough-yes-it-cough-is-cough. i ran up the stairs in the house to fetch the stinky bag of overnight pee slings, ran down the stairs and out the front door. i ran down the sidewalk.
except i didn't run down the sidewalk.
my left ankle bitch-slapped me by rolling in a certain direction that is unnatural, and i flew, headfirst, down the sidewalk. oh yes, yes i did.
and the garbage man saw me.
and so did the two guys putting siding on our neighbor's house.
and so did my kids.
it was awesome except for the part where, you know, i couldn't stand up, and my head was resting on a bag full of stinky vile diapers, and the only pair of jeans that really fits me had a two holes in the knee and were covered in blood, and also the huge gross open wounds on my right knee.
go ahead and thank me for not posting a picture. because those suckers are oozing the yuck.
i'm walking around a little because i don't know how to sit down, and also i'm in this twittering contest and i'm in the lead right now with the number of followers and i think that's cool and the mac laptop in our possession is crap and i can't tweet from the sofa.
what... you didn't know i was in a twitter contest sponsored by hotslings and miracle blanket... well hop your little self on to twitter and sign in or sign up and follow me, i'm @Mom_17 .
i like winning things. and there's good things to win in this game. so go follow me, please, pretty please.
also i'm walking around because i told a friend i'd make a bunch of bread for her this week and i don't know how to back out of things. also i can't really back out of the bread making because it was half made when my ankle hated on me.
it feels like it's on fire right now.
at least i'll be cozy warm in bed tonight.
