Just Another Typical Day

May 31, 2013

Sometimes people look at me like I live in a circus, or something when I tell them about my life.  You can be the judge of that.  Today was just another typical day.  I got up, and worked out.  I went to work, and juggled balls in the air, and nudged people and work along.  Somewhere along the way, the delicious purple dye in my hair started bleeding down my neck.  Yes.  I had purple everywhere, purple ears, purple neck, and purple hair. The only thing I had intended to have purple was my hair.  Whatever.

After work, I went flying by home, and grabbed 2 kids.   The husband went out the door with another one, and the other one was meeting us at Grandpa’s place.

Next we went to dinner with my dad.  Who was not in 2013.  Apparently it was sometime in the 1960’s, but I was here, and we were in Ft. Worth, not in North Carolina.  he had no idea who my oldest daughter was.  He was also lunging across the table to set down his glass.  I guess we have another UTI- which causes delirium in older folks.  Between the Delirium and Dementia, it is a never-ending challenge.

Towards the end of dinner, my youngest got sick and hurled.  Being the awesome mom that I am, I managed to deal with that super quick and get him OUT of the dining room before any of the other diners  there was the wiser.

After cleaning up kiddo, and diverting a minor disaster, I got him delivered home, to be babysat by his eldest sister, while I went to my younger daughter’s band concert.  Of course, I was late due to the minor disaster above, so I had to sneak into the back of the auditorium.

Once the concert concluded, it was a mad dash home, to drag all of the camping gear out, because one of my Girl Scout Troops is going camping this weekend.  My co-leader is graciously setting up camp, and we’re meeting her out there.  Co-leader asks me if I know that I have purple down my neck while we’re hauling stuff out and spreading it out all over the garage.  Now, if you’ve ever been camping with Girl Scouts, you’ll recognize the sheer volume of stuff that gets packed.  We made about 6 lists which went back and forth while we perfected them this week, and tonight was packing time.  3 dutch ovens, a box oven, a grill, dunk stations, mess kits, tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, and enough STUFF to fill several cars entirely full.  Fortunately, tonight’s haul was just about one full car-load, and passengers still fit- provided they didn’t actually attempt to breathe.  (Somewhere in there, I’m pretty sure there was a partridge in a pear tree, to go with the camping gear)

Finally, I was off to the shower to deal with the purple. And we had purple splatters all over the shower.  It looked like I killed a purple monster in the shower.

Sometime tonight, I’ll finally manage to wander off to bed, and then wake up in the morning to do it all again.  Hopefully, it will be a little less purple though.
