Thing #1: I bought an entire flat of strawberries at the farmer’s market. This is a huge amount of strawberries. I’m not sure why I got an entire flat, when what I was staring at the entire time was a half flat; but for some reason I said, “No, you know what? Make that a full flat.”
What was I thinking? (Well, other than rum + bananas + strawberries + triple sec + ice + blender = Happy Hour) But that flat of strawberries has now been mocking me for three (and a half) days. They do not have a long shelf life. Many of them have already been discarded due to fuzzy mold growth. I’d better get drinking baking.
Thing #2: Eldest went to a birthday party Saturday. After I dropped her off…I took the other three to Wendy’s for lunch and Frosty drinks.
That's right! I took the children out for something that could be both exciting and messy by myself. And then I bought them kid’s meals. I never do that. It is both expensive and pointless. They don’t eat the food. They eat maybe a couple fries and a nibble of hamburger then declare themselves full.
The fact that this was a really dumb thing to do didn’t occur to me until we got home. It didn’t even strike me as I was forking over $14 for three kid’s meals and one junior bacon cheeseburger meal – it wasn’t until I was unloading bags of uneaten food from Homer the Odyssey that I suddenly thought, Wait…what the @*^&@ did I just DO?!
Thing #3: I lost my cell phone Sunday morning. Walked around forever trying to find it. Tore apart cupboards, moved piles of laundry from one side to the other, dug through backpacks and checked under every piece of furniture in the Den. Then I picked up a phone that was sitting right in plain sight and tried to call it in hopes that I’d hear my lost cell phone ringing. It went straight to voicemail. Possibly because I was dialing from my cell phone.
Seriously, I think I need medication.
And also, it was a very much extremely weird weekend.
