Hold your fork!

Ever have one of those days where EVERYTHING goes wrong & the things that come out of your mouth is out of order or just plain wrong!? Well the past two days have been that way for me. Yesterday started out good. We were at Grandma's & she went with us to run a few errands. I was FINALLY able to get two pairs of work pants exchanged. It is SO hard to go anywhere that is not a drive thru with these youngin's. It is just SO much easier to bring Grandma along to watch them while I run in to do what I need to do. Well, it took more that I expected & we were driving ALL over town to get my pants. I almost wanted to forget it all & turn the BURB around & go home but we perservered. We drove about 40 miles & in the end they had to order my pants. On our way back to civilization is when my day went from good to bad. We were in an accident. 4 cars in front of me stopped quick which started a chain reaction and I ended up hitting the vehicle in front of us. LUCKILY my mom, the babies and I appeared unscathed. The woman in the car in front of me & her kids were ok too. However for the BURB it's a different story! It needs some major work done! I could not even drive it! UGH! Needless to say I was upset. I am now in a TOO SMALL rental van until the BURB gets fixed. Funny how no vehicle ever fits us! I feel SO out of place, like I am missing something. I find I am thinking about what could have been & even short tempered at times. Now fast forward to this evening at dinner. My WONDERFUL hubby picked up Chinese so I did not have to cook. Wasn't that sweet of him!? He has been trying to ease my mind ever since the accident but it does not seem to help. Here I am making sure the kids are fed. I made them Macaroni & Cheese, one of their favorites. They are all chatting away telling me that they want more & instead of me saying "I'm coming!", the only thing that came out of my mouth was...

Hold your fork!...

Glad you are all okay! Don't you just love how you have rental coverage that you pay extra for, but when you need a replacement it's never what or near what you wrecked in the first place!!! Hope tomorrow is a much better day for you!!!

Insurance should pay to replace all the kids car seats.
