When you get maybe 4 hours of sleep, you eat your coffee with a spoon, your toddler head butts you in the face, you can barely open your eyes, and you’re not sure whether it’s because of the headache caused by the toddler, or the lack of sleep. When it doesn’t really matter because I just feel crummy. What do I do?
I dig through the pantry and find the coffee filters that have been sitting in there for 5 years, untouched because we don’t use a drip coffee maker. Espresso all the way baby!!
Anyhow, where was I? Oh yeah. I also get food colouring, beads, stamps, markers, paint, fake flowers, tulle, and say, “Have fun!” While I try to figure out when our company is supposed to arrive, only to discover today is NOT Monday after all. It’s Sunday. Which means I will not have a second adult all day long. Instead it means I just gave my children a huge messy mess and I’m on my own.
On my second double espresso now. The table’s all cleaned up, the toddler’s asleep. And they’re crafting again. That means I need to clean again. And it’s lunch time. My food plan for company isn’t happening today. I need to figure something else out. Quick!
Where’s a food cart when you need it? Why oh why do I not have an ADR made for right now?!?!
Oh right, I’m not at Disney. Instead, I’m at home, and I already fed my children peanut butter (no jelly, we ran out) sandwiches for lunch yesterday, followed by grilled cheese for supper.
I need a different lunch plan today. Sigh. It’s one of those days. If we were at Disney, we’d stop for a salad and a Mickey Bar somewhere, maybe a dole whip. Hmmmm. I have pineapple, lemon, lime, cream and sugar…I know what we’re having for lunch today! Yay! It pays to think about Disney when things aren’t going according to plan!
Now all I need to do is make it through the rest of the day!
