kids woke up early. then refused to get ready so we could go to the family fun science activity at our library. so running a few minutes behind i was reminded that my clock was 10 min fast and we were going to be ontime. then i broke my sunglasses when i was closing the garage door (its manual gotta pull it down by hand) and was not happy. then while driving down the main drag i get pulled over for talking on the phone. (the phone that was on the floor of the passenger side and not in use.) the cop made me get the phone off the floor and prove to him that i was not on it by showing him the recent calls list. last call was yesterday at noon. he gave me a warning and sent me on my way. i am still peeved about it. i see drivers in this town doing illegal stuff all the time and i get pulled for nothing.
after all that we did the library thing, and then i had to bring my wedding ring back in to be fixed (a whole other story... the diamond was loose and the ring came back with a missing side diamond, a gouge in the gold, a shard of sharp metal on the side and a dollop of solder from when they reset the main diamond.) they said that it must of missed its quality check and that it would have to be sent out and fixed. i won't see my ring till feb 5th.
the jeweler is in the mall so we went to the food court for lunch. i got the kids what they wanted and they refused to eat it. spent money on lunch that they didn't eat. fought them tooth and nail to get back into the truck to go home and once we got there we drove home. 5 min into the drive i hear mommy i am hungry..... can we go get lunch? WTF? we just did that. only to get home and the dog (that refused to come in before we left) was caked in mud. then dd had a major meltdown because ds sat on her sleeping bag... (like a 20 minute long crying kicking screaming session because he sat on it. he was off of it within a minute of sitting on it ) fun fun fun!
