Today hasn't been a bad day, but it has been a ridiculous day.
If I told you how many times today I've said "this is not a good time to take off your clothes" and "please put your tongue back in your mouth", you'd probably think my life was far more exciting than it actually is.
I also think it's amusing how many little things preschool requires. Today, my son needed something for show in tell, a picture of something that starts with the letter "C" and it was our turn to bring in snack for his class of 15. This is also the day he stays late for an extra class so I needed to pack him a lunch. I know none of things are hard by themselves, but it gets a little out of hand when they all stack up.
I had a 1-5pm window for a plumber to show up this afternoon to fix a slow leak on the hot water pipe leading to a sink in a bathroom. This was also the morning when I happened to host a coffee for some neighborhood moms so there were about a dozen extra bodies in my house when the plumber showed up well before expected at 11 am. (The company did call to check if I was home, but I wasn't about to say no and risk the plumber going MIA.)
Turns out the main cutout valve that shuts off the water supply to the whole house was also leaking and covered in rust. Add in a few more minor things and the bill was almost $900. I am grateful that we discovered that the cutoff valve needed replaced before something was flooding our house with no way to stop it, but it wasn't exactly part of the plan for the day.
I'm looking forward to curling up on the couch with my husband today and having a glass of wine.
Anybody else have a ridiculous day?
I'm thankful that tomorrow is Friday and we have nothing planned!
