Do you ever look back on something you've done and think, "Wow, that was... really dumb."
This morning, 4:49am.
Do you know what kind of people are out and about at that unsightly hour? Psycho people, like... joggers and over-achievers, that's who. (Oh... I'm just teasing because I'm jealous)
Okay fine. And people who work to help accommodate said psycho people.
So why was I, who is neither a jogger or an over-achiever... though I suppose the psycho part is arguable, doing up at such a time?
I was on my way to the store... in all my freshly-rolled-out-of-bed-glory.
I've never seen Walmart look so barren.
And why in heaven's name was I going to the store to stinkin' early?
Well, we were completely out of life's basic necessities.
Otter pops and ice cream.
Oh, and diapers for Claira. I suppose those were important too, considering we discovered we were clean out last night.
But that still doesn't explain WHY I was there so early!
Well, two reasons. First, I just... really, really, really didn't feel like taking all five kids with me just to get diapers.
True, I have made such sacrifices for chocolate, but diapers? Pish... totally unimportant.
Some of you might not understand but, the summer experience of taking all kids with me to all places you ever go is starting to wear on me... just a bit. It drives people to do insane things... like go to the store at five in the morning.
And also, because Hubby CLAIMED he was going into work early. But really, I think it was an evil ploy to get the covers all to himself. The only reason he was out the door at 7:30am was because Claira was crying for a bottle and I was in the shower!
*humph* I could have slept in a little longer after all! He owes me... big time.
Well when I got back I decided to pretend for an hour or two that I was a responsible adult.
I spent some time with my scriptures then did something I haven't done in a long time.
I even dug down deep into my health arsenal for moral support.
Then I... well I... went all psycho and... exercised! *gasp* I know right! Maybe those joggers and over-achievers are onto something here!
Or... maybe not.
'Cause now that I've blogged about nothing of consequence and all the kids are awake, I'm ready for bed!
