|Doesn't everybody have clowns at their wedding rehearsal?|
* I had a very low moment in mothering yesterday. I have got to go to the grocery store. I mean GOT TA GO. I had made pizza rolls for the kids using crescent rolls, pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni. I couldn't eat them because of the cheese. I was just about to make a pb&j when I realized Kate had the last pieces of bread. You have to understand, there was no other food in this house I could eat. Y'all, I fought my 3 year old for the bread. It was totally a moment that I was extremely grateful there are not hidden cameras in my house. (Please tell me there are no hidden cameras!!!!!!!!) It wasn't pretty. Thankfully, I found one more piece of bread in the bag so I was able to make her half a "shamwich". Before you immediately get off the computer and call the authorities, Josh helped run his Dad's bread route yesterday and came home with more bread than 5 families could eat. So, we're good y'all. I promise not to fight my children for food anymore. I promise.
* Maybe my irrational behavior will be better understood if you know that I had also gone all day without a Diet Pepsi. Speaking of that, I seemed to have switched from Diet Coke to Diet Pepsi. I think I just needed some change in my life.
* I picked up my Jeep today!!!!!!!!!!! Woo-hoo! I've been without it for a week and my husband has been having to drive me around like Miss Daisy because I won't drive the church van or his car. Yes, those are my options. Actually, I can drive his car, I just have to physically stand up on the brakes to stop it. And, I can drive the church van, I just can't park it. Anyway, I am THRILLED to have my own ride back.
* Yesterday Josh picked up my wedding dress from my Mom's. It's been hanging out in her closet since the day after our wedding. I couldn't wait to get it out and put it on. Don't be impressed. I gained a lot of weight before our wedding, so it's not really a big deal I can fit in it. Anyway, Sarah said it is pretty. Kate said, "Yeah, kinda." Then, Sarah asked if I was just trying it on or if I was going to wear it somewhere. I joked on my Facebook status that I might wear it to church or to Wal-Mart. Several of my friends thought that was a great idea. Can't you just see me in Wal-Mart in my wedding gown? I would tell the cashier, "Yes, I'm getting the expensive, extra soft toilet paper and the name brand peanut butter. It's a special occassion."
* Our doorbell has rung (rang? runged? ringed?) 15 times in the last two days. I'm not even exaggerating.
* So, after a quick pit stop during the writing of this I realized that it is no longer strange to me to see a book about war history on the side of the bathtub or pliers on the counter in the bathroom. I guess I've gotten use to living with a boy. :)
