Today I am taking it easy. Well...from the gym.
No workout for me today. My body is tired. I have lots of kids around me sick and my thought was that I need to make sure I take one day off so I hopefully won't catch all the nastiness that is going around. (As I was typing this earlier I got an e-mail from the CDC stating there was an outbreak of whooping cough in our area...nice :) Been there and had that one already!)
We are in the midst of being without a dishwasher in our home. Let's just say this...doing day care and being a mom...this just isn't something that is fun. I have enjoyed a few of the moments as I am washing the dishes and seeing the kids playing outside. I have not enjoyed needing to do dishes for about 3 hours a day though.
I wrote this just a little bit ago on Facebook and thought others might enjoy it as well:
To the dishwasher repairman coming today: I am just going to apologize in advance. Sorry if I appear rude, tired or a little put off by your visit. I am a mom, I am a day care mom and I have 8+ kids in my house everyday and next week I have 11. I don't want my dishwasher fixed. I NEED my dishwasher fixed. I really don't have 3 hours in my day to be washing dishes and my hands are soft enough now so I don't need to soak them in dish water any longer. If you are planning on telling me that this won't be fixed today I may not be very polite with your response. In fact, I may roll my eyes and give you one of those teenage "huggh" breathing responses that I am starting to hear in my own house. Now, here's to putting a smile on my face, hoping that you don't come during snack time or ring the door bell while kids are still sleeping. :)
