X-AHH-STED

That says Exhausted, in case you weren't sure. And that's what I am. The past two days:

three-mile walk to Starbucks and back.
Kids to open gym at GymQuest.
Mall.
Ice cream and pretzel treats.
Lunch out with six kids, where I spent the better part of the outting in the bathroom with kids who had to poop or pee.
Attempt at bowling - too long of a wait.
Kids yelling, crying, being ungrateful B-tards because we couldn't go bowling and would go see a movie instead.
Nobody wanted to see Nanny McPhee again.
A trip to the Discovery Museum in which every single solitary mom and their non-Florida-vacationing Spring Break kids also had the same exact stupid idea.
A trip to Cold Stone Creamery.
Back home.

And now someone is crying about something but I've turned off my sensory buttons so I can't really hear anything anyone is saying.

Now she's yelling, "TURN ON, TURN ON, TURN ON!" and I'm like, "WHO ARE YOU YELLING AT?" and she says, "THE TV: IT WON'T TURN ON!"

Get off your ASS and push a button!

This, Day Two of The Spring Break From Hell.

Tune in tomorrow, for Scenes from the Zoo, where I will definitely start the trip out by swallowing two Xanax. (Just kidding, don't want to make any readers mad. I will really start the day with my usual grandenonfatsugarfreevanillalattenowhip, and then, after the caffeine buzz wears off, well, then I'll take the Xanax.)

Fun times!! I could totally use a Xanax right now. Got an extra? :)

**Disclaimer: Obviously I am not condoning drug trafficking, I am JUST KIDDING. Mostly.

Wow! No wonder you're tired. Have fun at the zoo!

Manic Mom said...

Swish--Are you kidding me? Sharing prescription drugs is like, COMPLETELY illegal. I could go to jail for doing something like that. WTF?

Manic Mom said...

How many do you want?

Manic Mom said...

K I D D I N G!

mostly.

Manic Mom said...

Caryn--yep, I'm tired, and it's 3:01 a.m. and I'm at my computer leaving MYSELF stupid comments on my own blog. What kind of loser am I?

Dear Readers--DON'T ANSWER THAT ONE!

Yes, the zoo will suck.

Are you going to Brookfield? Good luck with the weather! Sounds like a crazy day. You are an awesome mom to entertain your kids and their friends with all of that.

Can I come live with you?

Manic Mom said...

Cubmom--yes, Brookfield. You can come live with me only if you promise to be my nanny and drink margaritas and wine with me in the evenings. Oh, and you can bring your boys too!

Sugarmama said...

Ack! Sounds like kiddie hell! I take it you don't have a backyard you can just kick them out into with, like, juice boxes and PB&J sandwiches? So sorry! Xanax it is then, and no one will fault you for it.

That may have been TMI.

Are you a flatlander?

Manic Mom said...

Sugarmama--we do have a backyard, but it's pretty cruel to send them out with PBJ's in 30 degree weather! Ha! IF the sun were shining, we'd definitely just be hanging around the 'hood.

Derph--that was kind of you to delete the comment you thought was TMI, but yes, I am right about where you thought I was. Very close to LaG (code)... you coming to visit anytime soon?

And I never heard of the term flatlander!! But I guess it makes sense. No hills out here!
