Yesterday I also went to the mall and got new bras (I needed a strapless one for my red dress, and once you try on a new bra, they are like potato chips, you can't have just one) and also got new foundation and some white eye shadow. That was a tip I got from Cecily, and figured I could give it a try. AND I got my eyebrows waxed. So this morning, I was ready to face the day - new hair, shaped brows, make-up and uplifted boobs!
This morning was a good test of my new routine. If by good, you mean MORNING FROM HELL. But I digress. Tonight, after work, I want to go straight to the cabin. So last night I got the car mostly packed, and took a shower (but didn't wash my hair). I woke up this morning, brushed out my hair, quickly washed my face and did makeup and got the kids. And this is of course where things started going south.
Cam is SUPER excited for the cabin. He apparently thinks we are going fishing. So he was up and out of bed and ready to go. Packing up his bag with his binkie and his blankets and books.... while I was getting Maggie dressed. Maggie then wanted to be held. While I was trying to dress Cam and get everyone downstairs PLUS the big bag with every single blankie, stuffed animal, book and pillow Cam could fit in. So she was at my heels crying UP UP UP UP - which was a nice touch.
Then I got downstairs, and realized that I didn't have a decent 'car' supper to fed them - so we would have to swing my the grocery store. Have I mentioned I can't get Maggie to stop crying? THEN I remember that someone is coming to pick up the music table I'm selling, but of course it's raining and I'm leaving it outside, so I need to figure that out too.
Get downstairs (in about three trips with all the baggage), with Maggie crying the entire time - to see that one of my tires is low. It's hot and muggy, so I'm sweating. And running around in the rain trying to pump up my tires... and I finally get everything set, in the car (Maggie has stopped crying, thank the gods) and we are off.
So, that picture is after sleeping on the hair and just brushing it out, sweating on the makeup, walking around in the rain.... and I think it's a success!
