I got 3 pages written today. Not bad considering it has been one of those days!!!
This morning was a fight with the kids to make a quick raid on the library. What should be a quiet peaceful trip has turned into snatch and grab. My son plays with the two toys they have there for about 10 minutes tops--assuming no one else wants to play with said toys because then a tussle ensues, and my boy is small, but fierce :/ My daughter scoots around and grabs about 10 books that she fancies and we leave. That is it. End of story. No quiet storytimes, no peacefully curled up children engrossed in story after story. Smash and grab.
Next was cycling to my friend's house a couple of blocks away. Normally my daughter is a safe biker, but not today. She fell off twice and crashed into me once. Son fell asleep in the seat on the back of my bike, which makes riding/steering a little tricky. So he missed dinner, because we had swimming and had to go. So we went and DH got a parking ticket from the Gestapo at the U of M.
DH was very pleased and made us all miserable until even the dog gave him a look, after which he relaxed and laughed about it. Of course, now he's determined to get off this violation--just because I got a refund from the one and only parking ticket I ever received. Now I know he has the gift of the gab, but I was nine months pregnant and carrying a two year old when I got my ticket--I wouldn't bet on him :)
