Ever since Valentine's Day my week has gone downhill. I'm not sure why but here are a list of possible reasons....

-I washed a load of laundry on Tuesday without knowing that a roll of toilet paper had somehow been dropped into the washer. Yes, a WHOLE roll. And, it was not just a small batch of clothes I was washing, it was a HUGE load (you know, the kind where you push the limit of the washer because you don't want to do laundry all day long?). Needless to say, I have been cleaning up little pieces of toilet paper from EVERYWHERE and I still have about 6 or 7 shirts and pants that I just don't know what to do with. AHHHH!!!

-There is still toilet paper falling from the tops of our trees from our house being toilet papered AGAIN a couple of weeks ago. I'm totally okay with the youth rolling our house if they need something to do, but seriously, the day before it rains???!!

-This morning I sent the girls off to school after being totally irritated and snappy with them for taking WAY TOO long to get ready. Yes, they did make their beds and they did go to school dressed BUT I'm pretty sure they didn't brush their teeth or brush their hair. I was also sick of fighting Cloey on her outfit today so she went to school in a wrinkled dress mismatched tights and her hair...oh her hair!!! Our blow dryer died last week so the girls and I have been without for way too long. I need to go buy one TODAY!!! The girls went to bed last night with their hair wet and apparently Cloey must have gone through some kind of crazy night sleep in order to have the do that she woke up with. I wouldn't be surprised if her teacher sent a note home asking if everything was okay.

-I'm totally stressed about upcoming travel plans.

-My house is a disaster AGAIN and I'm so sick of cleaning this week.

Wow, this is a really depressing post isn't it? I do feel a little better now. I guess I'll go and pick off some more shreds of toilet paper.

Sorry you're having a bad day! Sounds like you're not having much luck with toilet paper ;)
As for your girls getting ready on time- check out this website I just started it last week with my kids & so far they have loved it. (We had to kind of stop this week since Morgan's sick) but every morning they make their beds, brush their teeth & hair, etc.. and we still have time left. It has made a HUGE difference & I'm not yelling all morning trying to get them going. The best part is it's all free & you can set up your own rewards.
Hope your week goes better!

I feel your pain...New puppy...Just sent the dogs home that we were dog sitting...Jake is sick...House is a disaster. I came in this room to clean it up and I decided to check out some blogs instead. It does feel good to vent though doesn't it? I guess I will go clean now. :) Hope it gets better and think of it this way it could have been a tube of red lipstick in the wash...That is about the only thing I can think of that would be worse. Luckily you aren't really a red lipstick girl...I don't think I really know anyone who is! I had tissues from Jake's pocket go through a couple of days ago and that was bad enough. Have fun with your toilet paper. :)

I now KNOW that you are a saint! I can't believe that you said you are okay with being toilet papered! just so the youth have something to do!

That totally cracks me up!

I hope your week is better from here on out!
