It Can Only go Up from Here.

Today is kicking my butt.

Myer woke up at 4:30 Ante Meridiem due to a gas bubble, and after screaming for 15 minutes or so, he was up and raring to go for the day.

(I got woken up at 4:30 because of a toot? Oh, the glamour that is my life!)

He went down for his first nap at 6:30 AM. He slept for about 45 minutes, and ever since then, he has not slept, but has fussed for a total of... (sixty times eleventy nine... carry the one... subtract the fifth... to the... uh ...) all the other minutes.

We tried to get out of the house and go to Barnes & Noble but I forgot my stroller and the baby is too heavy for the sling now-a-days and so I let Myer crawl around a bit but then got ooged out by the carpet and Ezra started to throw a fit because he wanted a train and Myer smelled like poop and there was a mom with judgy-eyes so I bribed ezra with a happy meal (ugh) and we left the store but when I was trying to change myer the woman whose car was next to mine was waiting and couldn't get to her door because my door was in the way so I switched sides of the car but when I went to leave I realized I hadn't shut the other doors hard enough and they were about to fly open on the main road and then mcdonalds gave me the wrong food and put a girl toy in ezra's happy meal even though I told three separate employees that he was a BOY.


You know... one of those days.

Anywho, we're all back home now, and Ezra just looooves his American Girl book & paper dolls.

No, really. He looooooves them.


*blink. blink.*

Here's why things are looking up, however... even though today has been somewhat suck-tastic:

- it's Friday!
- Ezra has his first official sleepover at a friend's house tonight!
- one of my articles got a thumbs up for possible publishing!
- I get to go to an Emmy party with these fabulous women, and I am so excited about it that I may or may not already have my dress picked out and hanging in a special place in my closet...

Wow! Glad you're upright and breathing so you can recount that all to us! Hilarious!

Oh I'm so glad I'm not the only one with my dress picked out ...

Oh dear heavens! I do NOT have a dress picked out. So much pressure now!

Hang in there Emery! Can't WAIT for Sunday!
