One of THOSE Weeks

Coming off an extreme weekend of every emotion into a week filled to the brim has made me a wee bit ornery. I was hoping to get to posting about the amazing Vegas Ragnar, but that will most likely be coming later. Instead you get to join in a pity party with me. You know the weeks when you just can't seem to get on top of anything? Throw in a couple extra things like, Halloween and a new job and it gets that much more hectic. Here are a few things that have been happening this week:



  • Preschool field trip to the museum. I don't have any pics because I rented a locker for a quarter and as soon as I locked the door I realized my camera was still sitting in my purse. And I didn't have another quarter, so there it stayed.


  • Book Club. I just got the book on Monday and the party was Wednesday. Needless to say I didn't finish it. And upon arriving to Book Club (45 mins late) I found out I was supposed to be the one leading the discussion. Luckily my group is awesome and Amber took right over.


  • I had mutual at my house where we made mini donuts and watched Thriller. I love my Mia maids.


  • I made more donuts the next day for Aiden and Andrew's class party. I don't care if I see another mini donut for a long time.


  • I was in charge of a craft for Oakley's party and drove around to several different stores(even the same store twice) to find something to do, finally settling on a mediocre craft. Luckily Kindergartners don't care.


  • Waiting for the most important part of my costume to come in the mail only to find out this morning that they "can't find the package" anywhere.


  • Having to schedule a drug test and find babysitters because they won't let you take kids with you.


  • And finally, the worst one, we are speaking in Sacrament on Sunday. And when I say we, I mean all seven of us. It should be a grand meeting. Anyone is welcome to come, you might get a few laughs.

And all you moms know what it is like to do everything while taking care of kids, so while I was making my second batch of over 100 mini donuts:


Paige, Morgan, and Oliver decided to empty out their entire wardrobe into the living room.

Let's just say it was the icing on the cake....or should I say donut.

Amy!!! Call me when you need a sitter. I'm always happy to come help watch the hoard. This sounds like a crazy week for you guys. I hope it slows down next week. It'll be nice having the talks out of the way...That is the scarriest thing for me. :)
