Whine: YouTube is down! Or something! Apparently "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page" (has there every been a more annoying error message by the way? No. There has not.) What if I wanted to watch some kittens roughhousing? Or a skateboarder do an Ollie right onto his rump? Or embed a McDonald's talking bear commercial?!?!?! What then, YouTube? What do you suggest I do?!
Wish: I wish my county hadn't run out of salt money. Or plow money. Actually, I"m just speculating but I'm a really good speculator and I can't think of any other reason my very busy road is still not plowed after Sunday's blizzard. Ee. This sounds like another whine doesn't it? Yes, I guess it sort of is. Ok, I also wish to always wake up when Molly yells for help in the middle of the night. Last night I didn't. (I was TIRED ok?) Luckily Jim was home and came to her rescue, but it has me wondering how many other times she has yelled for me and I haven't heard her.
Woo-hoo! For the SECOND day in a row Jim has taken Molly out for the afternoon to run errands! This time I thought they were just running to the corner store but that was two hours ago and they are still gone! A better wife and mommy (one who wakes when her daughter cries, "help!") would be worried, but I'm just pumped to have some quiet time! (A is napping). Glorious quiet time. Except for the dishes, laundry, and dust bunnies calling my name. But I can drown them out just as I do M in the middle of the night.
Note: Sorry, no commercial today thanks to YouTube. :(
Another note: Do you want to know why M was yelling for me? She got her hair tangled up in her bedpost. Yes. Her hair. In the bedpost. Bizarre, I know. But this is the same girl who trapped herself between her mattress and mattress cover when she was a baby. And the same girl who screamed for me during nap time when her thumb got stuck in a buttonhole and turned blue. And the same girl who cried out from her crib a couple years ago because she took her barrette out of her hair and pinched it on the inside of her cheek. So. Really this was just another day in the life of M.
