Saturday Recap

Saturday, March 11, 2006

I woke on the proverbial wrong side of the bed today and couldn’t crawl myself out of the funk that began at 6 am. Saturday is my day to sleep in, and by sleep in I mean 8 am. But today the three boys were just one wall away and LOUD…Mr.C watching car racing (on low volume, mind you) and the other two acting their respective ages.

I tried many things to get out of my funk….starting with a nice walk in the recently positive degree weather. But my son fell in the pond (only elbow deep, mind you, but a full body soaker, nonetheless).

I tried to relax and work on my scrapbook, but it only lasted for a half an hour because both children got cranky at the same time.

I tried to enjoy cooking dinner for my parents, but got overwhelmed by too many new recipes on the go. And both children cranky and crazy all at the same time. It must be a full moon tonight. The babe is getting his two front teeth in and letting us know it. Our older son is craving the attention diverted to the babe and letting us know it. My parents got up from their seats to go with the food barely in their stomachs. Again.

And now the day is over and I am too edgy to even enjoy blogging. Where has the day gone? It has passed me by in a blur of distraction and constant cleaning and cooking and caring for children.

Calgon, take me awaaaaaaay…..

P.S. I’m not seeking soothing or sympathy, just dumping frustration. By tomorrow I’ll be over it (so long as I wake up on the right side J

    I hear you. Not only was I in a funk, but my hubby was too. That means we were at each other most of the day. I'm glad this day is almost over!

    So hugs from me to you!

    I am working on a great invention
    -like a mini fork lift - grabs
    people as they get up from their
    seats - if the timer is still on-
    and plunks them right back down.
    And hands them a "comment"
    card...

    Pick One and SAY it...
    "Can I help with the dishes?"
    Let's play Monopoly boys!"
    "Who wants to go for a nice walk?"

    Smiles!

    I worked all day yesterday with a friend in his appartment. He wanted to have parquet - well now he has parquet!
    So my saturday wasn't a bit better!

  1. Blogger Devil Mood said:

    I know it's not even remotely funny but I laughed when you said your son fell on the pond - it's just something unusual for me. I'm glad he's alright, of course!
    Hope you're feeling better today. It's definitely not easy to have two kids and work and cook and have parents round and do a scrapbook...:)

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    okay you are entitled to these days too.
    (otherwise hallmark would go out of business -sending you once more)
    i managed to piss my friends and M off yesterday.
    I'm being nice today. :)
    You be nice too xx

  1. Blogger Heidi said:

    Cathy It's Sunday morning and I hope your funk has passed so you can enjoy the day and sleep in a little.

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    Better today? Hope so! Sounds like you'd suffered a pile up of all the "little things." :( Remember all those little things that make you happy too - one of the good things about blogging is they're probably in here somewhere too :)

    Love those Calgon baths. I recently posted my feelings about such baths at http://adoptingfromrussia2.blogspot.com/2006/03/bath.html

  1. Blogger Connie and Rob said:

    Those days sneak up on you and ya just can't help it! I know I have them and wonder if I should even be out driving with such a cloud over my head.

    Hope your Calgon bath gave you a break so you could get a good night
    of sleep.

    Take care,
    Connie

    I've woken up there too. Nothing but another good nights sleep can rectify waking up on the wrong side of the bed.
    Hope the rest of your weekend is better.

  1. Blogger PI said:

    There is something to be said for getting older - but not a lot.
    Hope today is heaps better. Am very blog-site concious at present, after my disaster last week and I must say cathy, yours is so pretty.

    MomyBlogR, Sarah;
    Tomorrow is another day; a better one :)

    Madelyn;
    When does it go on sale?

    Rabsteen;
    Welcome! Yes, it is a calm blue ocean; Thanks for the reminder...yesterday the waves were huge!

    Michelle;
    Bookstore, lunch out, gardening, plus 10 degrees....much better.

    Green eyed girl;
    You speak the truth; I keep reminding myself of this truth.

    Gurgo;
    How is(was) your Sunday?

    Devil Mood;
    It was funny; I totally know what you mean; he was in no danger but he has the drama down perfect...he may be an actor some day.

    Chloe;
    Thank you for the cards, my friend.
    I am nice, and so are you, so who says otherwise? Just because we assert our opinions doesn't mean we're not nice! :)

    Heidi;
    It has passed; how are you doing?

    Stephanie;
    Another wise friend, you are...yesterday has been removed by the internal delete button.

    Jen and Connie;
    I never had the chance to have one because I fell asleep on the couch at 9pm...but I will check yours out.

    Angel;
    It was much better. Thank You.

    pi;
    Tell me the good bits, please :)

  1. Blogger Heidi said:

    Cathy..I'm glad your has passed..I hope it stays away for a long time..Mine on the other hand has has stalled and has yet to move.

    Thanx for asking.

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Mary;
    Sunday was another day; much, much better.

    Heidi;
    Oh dear, that is bad news...it is really hard when you are in a deep funk. Maybe you should treat yourself to something tomorrow, even if it is a small thing, like a nice new magazine or a special coffee?

  1. Blogger Meow said:

    Cathy, it's Monday afternoon for me, and I hope you are over your Saturday Funk. Sorry you had such a poopy day. Take care, Meow

  1. Blogger Gurgo said:

    my sunday was quite relaxing. I stayed at home reading, watching tv and did the first time for a couple of weeks nothing!
    here it snows for 3 das ery heavily. In some areas of Saxony we have about 50 cm new snow.
    (In spring!!!)
    I can't remembre the last time we had such a long winter.
    But staying in bed is lovely!
