and just like all other holidays....it has totally, and completely sucked. I can't even go into the depths of suckage, just imagine your worst birthday, and I am sure you will be close.
Onwards and upwards I guess. Tonight is the girls dress rehearsal for their recital. Sounds like fun to be in a HS auditorium with all four kids until way past bedtime....oh and we need to leave before dinner time. To combat the angry, hungry child syndrome, I made some oven baked honey mustard chicken strips, pasta salad and strawberries to combat the hungry crazies. I will pack it up and bring it with us, and I hope it will ease the beasts.
Tomorrow I get to spend the day cleaning up, and then Friday I need to be out the door by 7 am to go to a conference. I am just hoping to make it home by bedtime for the kids :(
Saturday is recital day, but again I need to leave at 7 am to go to a conference then leave there at 4:30 and rush to the show hopefully in time to see my girls. Ugh...did i mention I need to go on Sunday too? And that grades are due? And my normal work? BLECK...I need this weekend to be over, today to be over, and I am skipping my birthday and all other holidays from now on, they are just a huge disappointment. Oh I wish my husband could just be thoughtful once.
