Ever Have One of Those Days?

I really think I need to stay home and lay low for the rest of the day. I am a little afraid of what will happen next.

It started this morning when sweet Hubby was awakened by the sound of Maggie "woofing", now that is not so unusual you say but she was "woofing" at the foot of the bed instead of from her crate in the breakfast room. The little escape artist had made her way into the bedroom and was making her presence known. I am searching for presents today since I don't know how long she was out of her crate and where all she visited before coming to see Mama and Daddy!

I got up at 6 am to get darling daughter off to school and the alarm was lit up saying a door was open, so panic sets in really quickly but it turned out to be just the door from the garage into the house did not get completely shut. Hubby leaves for work and I walk to the bus with darling daughter. The bus stops on our corner, so often I just go through the yard to the side of the house, thankfully I did not today as Hubby left the garage door open when he went to work. These are minor things but when you can't hear, you learn to be very meticulous about things beings shut and locked.

To say the idiots were out today would be the understatement of the year, I was dodging them right and left all the way to the doctors office. So I decided that the safest place for me today is home. I come in and the puppy wants attention so I put her in my lap as I check my email. She bites my necklace and all the beads come sliding off. Unfortunately, some of the tiny ones land on the keyboard and get stuck under the keys. After a lot of hard work and some muttering under my breath, I think I have managed to extract them all.

It isn't even 3 pm yet, I am really afraid of what the rest of the day has in store for me. Did I meantion that I have 10 people coming to spend the weekend with our little family of 3? Fortunately, they have decided to leave the dogs at home, so we will only have our little 5 lb troublemaker to deal with.

The doctor said I was anemic and need to eat more red meat (how often do you get a doctors okay to eat red meat?) I guess I could use that for an excuse for being so tired and go take a nap instead of finishing my cleaning for my guest this weekend! Oh well, better go get hopping on those dust bunnies! Hope you all are having a better day than me!

Wow! You're making me tired and paranoid just reading your post today! I had a day not quite that bad yesterday and decided I needed to chill out a bit because I was getting hyper.

I can't imagine having 10 houseguests for the weekend even if we were already in our new house. That's a big much . . . as in a BIG bit much in my books, so hope it all works out for you.

In the meantime, I think I would lie low and rest up a bit. I suffer from chronic anemia due to being diabetic for so long and all of its complications, so I can identify with that and needing extra rest.

Take care and . . .

Cheers & Blessings to you today! Dee

I really don't mind that everyone is coming here, I know we will have loads of fun together. I am just really tired right now and I am angry at myself that I did not pace my time better so that my house would be cleaner. It is getting down to the wire to where there is a limit to what I could do even if I had the energy which I don't. Wow, I must be tired that sentence makes sense to me! Ha Ha!
