Craptastic days that end with rainbows

Stressed. Behind on every single thing I could possibly be behind on… and maybe then some. I have half finished posts and articles everywhere and my desk is a mess. My brain is fried. I started this day with the feeling that this is the day I would get caught up – and then some. 


Not so much.

Instead I spent half the day getting the boys costumes ready for school tomorrow. They will each dress up as a character from a book they like. While I spent part of the week stressing over what the boys wanted and I could not make, I took the advice of Cissa and gave them choices of what I could make.

It took me an hour and a half to pick up the craft supplies but I came in under $16 so that was pretty awesome. I did however have to break my ban on Jo-Ann…but it was for a good cause because I love my kids (even though walking through those doors after all this time made me die a little inside).  The things we do for our kids, right?

The costumes came out really cool and the boys are excited to wear them tomorrow.  It did however eat a giant portion of my day, so nothing got written or posted anywhere.

Straight from dinner we hit up Reading Night at school and all I could think about when we pulled up is the work I should have been home doing instead.  The boys were yelling with glee over this rainbow so I stopped and snapped a photo for them.  Here it is.

At the time all I could think about what my craptastic day.  But in the end, I enjoyed the time with the boys at school.  Tomorrow is another day right?  Which I will kick off by dressing the boys as a hedgehog from Apple Trouble, the tree (yes I said the tree) from Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and the man in the yellow hat from a Curious George Christmas book we have.  And after I take the twins to their class, I will go into the Big Guy’s class with him.  I am telling the class tomorrow about what its like to be a Blogger.

Wish me luck.  (Maybe after that I’ll actually get home and you know, get caught up on blogging or something.)


  1. It is nice to be reminded that the world keeps on turning no matter what kind of day we've had. A rainbow is a perfect end to that kind of day. šŸ™‚ You will have ot post pics of the kids in their costumes!

  2. Good luck and thank God there is another day call tomorrow.
