Bitter, Party of One

What was supposed to happen:
  • Work until 2:30 and then run a few errands
  • Do 4 mile training run
  • Babysitter to come at 6PM
  • Chubby Hubby and I were to enjoy a pre-Twins Game cocktail
  • Enjoy Twins Game 2 rows behind the team dugout
  • Come home to 3 sleeping kids and a sitter that could drive herself home

What really happened:
  • Left work at 11AM with fires still burning on my desk
  • Cleaned up 7 Diva vomits
  • Changed clothes 2 times because of vomit
  • Washed 6 loads of laundry
  • Did not do my errands
  • Did not run
  • Did not go to the Twins Game
  • Thought about drinking at 2:30 this afternoon (I resisted)
  • Currently eating stale McDonalds cheeseburger and a luke warm beer for dinner while watching for Chubby Hubby and my son on TV.
I am whining and feeling sorry for myself.  I am disappointed that our plans were shaken up by sick kids but I am used to this kind of thing happening.   It all come with being a parent.   I am most disappointed that I didn't get my run in tonight.  ***gasp*** Did I just say that???  Yes, I am feeling worn out and pissy.  I really could use some endorphins right now.  Scratch that.  I have moved on to beer.  But I really like myself better when there is exercise involved.  Again....did I just say that?

Anyway, that is enough of my pity party for tonight. I am off to do something productive like read blogs and stalk people on Facebook do a laundry and  pack for this weekend.

What a bummer! I would totally be pissy about it too. There's nothing worse than a let-down. :-(

Sorry your evening didn't go as planned. Sometimes it sucks having kids. But mostly it's awesome. Just gotta deal with the bad. Enjoy the rest of your evening!

Imagine if they get a foul ball?

My word verification was "fries" - can't make that up.

Bummer! I hope everyone feels better soon and you get a nice run in. Can you run during lunch tomorrow?

Tish said...

My comment to your last post didn't reflect any of the empathy I feel for you. Sorry about your day. I hope the sun comes out tomorrow, everybody's better, and you get your run and all's right with your world. (and the fires haven't burned a hole in your desk)

Meg said...

Aww, that sucks. It's a double whammy when things go wrong and you don't get that time to yourself to exercise. Hope things have been looking up since this post!
