Just another Tuesday


It’s the day after the day after my big event for the spring–the Biker Bash–benefiting Valley View Elementary School which is in the Eanes School District in Austin.  My boys went to visit their Amaw over the weekend–to get out of our hair so we could focus on the event, and to see their grandmother over the long weekend.  They came home last night, tumbling down the escalator like a bunch of blonde heathens carrying huge Lego bags and fighting like crazed cats.  That’s fine, I’m used to that.  Then, when they got home, they started fighting over the Alienware laptops.  Keep in mind that they each have their own.  And they each have an iPad and an iPhone.  They are not deprived.

I love my children, there’s no question about that.  But like most moms I don’t always, how do I say  this, enjoy their company as much as I do at other times.

Cut to today–the day after the day after–it’s now apparent why they were all so grumpy, and why I’m going to be grumpy later (but I can’t let myself be a bitch just yet).  They are all sick.  Not just tired, but freaking sick.  Sore throat, headache, yadda, yadda.  For heaven’s sake.

Who comes out the winner in this entire scenario?  Only the doctor’s office.
