This day......

Today started out OK. Well, kind of. Yesterday afternoon and all night we had a lot of rain. At about 0300 or thereabouts, a COCKROACH fell on my FACE in my bed. Seriously. So what if his house is rained out DO NOT COME IN MINE AND LAND ON MY FACE. I woke up this morning with a renewed desire to CLEAN!!!!! I have no idea where that little bugger went. He will regret seeing me again as I am ready with my can of raid. (we have windows that are above our head, but fairly high up. I'm assuming that is how he landed on me.)

I asked a friend to watch Lucy so that I could clean and not have a little girl destroy it right behind me. She had a great time, and I did get quite a bit done. It was a bit warm in the car, but not enough to turn on the AC. So, I decided to roll down the passenger side window to let a bit of breeze in on our very short drive home. I had barely touched the button to make it go down when that window went down so fast I barely saw it. And then I knew. It wasn't coming up. How is this possible? Both windows in less than a month? At almost $300 each they are not cheap. And the guy can't see our car until tomorrow. Which is just as well because Matt has to spend the night at the hospital tonight to be on call. Which I didn't know until about 1800. Which is fine.

I also forgot that Wednesday is early release day for Andrews school. So I get a phone call from the teacher reminding me. Geez. 20 minutes late to pick up my kindergartner. He wasn't upset though. Luckily we live just down the street.

And nothing sounded good for dinner, and it felt like I didn't have anything in the house to make. But I managed meatloaf, mashed potatoes and broccoli. And I make some good mashed potatoes. Just add whipping cream. Seriously. So good. It is almost bedtime, so I will get some quiet time very soon. My robe is coming out earlier and earlier every night. In fact, I think I'm going to go put it on now. I just feel better in my robe. Here's to hoping tomorrow goes a bit better.......

Wow, sorry about the roach in your face! I bet you screamed so loud!!

Well if you need a vehicle again while your other window is being fixed, you know where to call :)

Well, we don't get nearly as much rain as you do, but the exact same thing happened to my car window last week during our monsoon season. These things always happen at exactly the wrong time, am I right?

Here's hoping that today is a better day!

The roach on your face. YIKES!!!!! There was one coming out the vent just above my head while I was feeling pretty vulnerable on the "throne" a few months back before we moved out of the rental. I screamed hard enough to wake Don up. I can just imagine how traumatized I would have been if it had actually landed on me. I shudder at the thought...
