The next time that you wake up to a thunderstorm (oh how I miss the days when that meant I could stay in bed and be cozy and linger over a book)
and you get the kids all dressed and ready to go and one by one take them to the car
and you set off to run some errands and then go to the children's museum/playspace in town
make sure that you also call a friend to ask for a recommendation for a dry cleaner since you're new in town; and mention what you're planning to do.
That way, she can let you know that the children's museum/playspace is usually closed on Mondays.
And when you're driving in the pouring rain and you hear a funny noise
and then think it's probably just the rain.
and then the noise goes away so you forget about it.
And then you go to Sonic to buy cinnasnacks for a fun rainy drive to distract your four and two year olds from their disappointment that they can't play at the museum/playspace.
Make sure to ask for plenty of napkins because the cinnamon part of the cinnasnacks is really messy (that's why you ignored the frosting in the bottom of the bag in the first place.)
And then when you drive by the mail box at the Post Office, be careful to not run over the curb like you do EVERY time.
But make sure that if you do, there is a nice older gentleman nearby to tell you that you have a flat tire. But not the tire you ran over the curb with, so who knows how long you have been driving on a flat.
Then be very thankful that due to the thunderstorms, your husband's flights have been cancelled so he can come and change your tire.
And that someone could fix the tire very quickly for $10 since your baby is 45 minutes past her scheduled feeding and it's also lunchtime now.
Then, go home (forget about the dry cleaning this time) and stay warm and dry.
And enjoy the peace of having three (I know THREE!) sleeping children who are sleeping at the same time. (That's two days in a row for your oldest!!!)
Hope your Monday has been wonderful but less "eventful" than mine!
