I Slink Down the Alley Looking For a Fight, Howlin' to the Moonlight On a Hot Summer Night

We had a wonderful weekend, and I even had the opportunity to meet the awesomely wonderful Laeroport at the Renaissance Festival.

However, today HAS BEEN SHIT. I went to the gym for the first time today since breaking my stupid fucking foot (hello, I need endorphins, eeeeennnnndddooooorrrrfffffiiinnnnsss, to try and alleviate my constant foot pain) and while I was there Darwin took it up on himself TO BEAT UP A BABY AND SPIT IN HIS FACE.

My baby. My sweet, precious baby that can do no harm KICKED THE FUCKING SHIT OUT OF ANOTHER KID AND SPIT ON HIM.

He's not that innocent.

Then we got home, Aaron called to say he's getting sent out of town.

Then this afternoon, Griffin took it upon himself TO WHACK DARWIN UPSIDE THE HEAD WITH A SHARP, POINTY DINOSAUR BY DARWIN'S BLIND EYE.

FUCK YEAH, I'M YELLING FOR A REASON, I'M YELLING BECAUSE I'M PISSED OFF AND I WILL GET NO HELP TONIGHT AS MY HUSBAND IS OUT OF TOWN AND IT'S ONLY TWO O'CLOCK AND I CAN'T HAVE ANY OUZO YET BECAUSE I HAVE ABOUT FIVE MORE ERRANDS TO RUN WITH THESE LITTLE HEATHENS AND I'M QUITE CERTAIN I'M NOT GOING TO LIVE THROUGH THE DAY.

Help.

I hear ya sister. Sounds like a shit storm. Batten down the hatches. deep breaths and insanely early bedtimes for the boys. You need some Mommy Time.

estea said...

oh honey i am so sorry. if m traveled i would be in a catatonic state in the corner most of the time. i don't know how you do it.

you wants to drop off your boys over here and run your errands or just go stock up on ouzo or just go sit somewhere with some coffee???

i am totally serious. it is beautiful outside and i have banished mine to the backyard. we just got back and are hanging loose over here, just doing laundry and surfing and eating crap.

email me newbuck at socket dot net

Dawn said...

That's some serious shit there man. Seriously. Some seriously shitty shit. I'm sorry. Seriously. Pass the Ouzo because the down pour made it over this way. Seriously.

kristi said...

Oh, no. Sorry Darwin picked today to be a little hellraiser. If there's anything I can do to help out, let me know. I hope you're getting close to ouzo-time by now...

breeeaaath sloooowwwllyyy.

aaaand aaaaggaaiin.

ok, you're calm. They're only little. You could hang them upside down from the nearest tree, of course you could. BUT you're not going to. Because YOU'RE STRONG. And they're NOT going to wing.

Just give the ouzo to them. They'll sleep.

Ali said...

Your pennance as a mother is to live through it today, so they can dream up new ways to torture you tomorrow!!

Ouzo sounds like a good remedy.

LLA said...

dear lord - it really does pour on, doesn't it.

Bubba's outta here as well. So I'll commiserate with you, and have me some of that virtual ouzo right along with you....

Those cute little kids that were climbing all over the pirate ship and shaking hands with the jester?

Sigh.

Well, here's the clink of a shot glass. How about instead of the pumpkin patch we get a sitter and go to Tasso's?

laeroport said...

And what's with the "awesomely wonderful?" Come on! Man, now I think I should go back and edit my post because I only said you were sweet and funny. ;)

I'd suggest running away from home but looks like your husband beat you too it. Next time you go on a business trip.

Are you still doing no tv?

amy h said...

I second the idea of a business trip for you! It sounds like you need one. What a day!

Angela said...

oh man. oh crap. sucky. sucker mcsuckerson. hmmm...Well, I hope the day ends quickly and that tomorrow is better. ;-) Take deep breaths.

linda said...

Hmmm...well, I guess you're still alive since I just heard from you. Breathe deeply and go to bed early - extra sleep does wonders for me, although I hardly ever take my own advice.

Is your foot supposed to be in pain? That doesn't sound good.

Alicia A. said...

Oh, I hope it wasn't so bad after all. :(

I'm around this week if you wanna play.

Marsha said...

When Mandy was little she had this book called, "We Eat Dinner in the Bathtub". Sometimes when I am having one of those days and Jeff is out of town we have a picnic somewhere silly. Like on the floor in the living room or outside, at the park. Anyways something silly and out of the ordinary is what helps me shake off the funk.

Emily said...

Did you make it??? I am so sorry you had such a crappy day. REally I am. I can relate somewhat. Mine used to be little and beat up on others....
I will cross my fingers that they didn't tie you up and you got your Ouzo!!!!

Amy said...

The Ren Fest -- HUZZAH!

Did you guys watch the jousting etc. - sounds like your boys picked up some new skills.

Hope things are calming down w/ or w/o ouzo.

Cathy said...

that is a BAD day! I hope things got better or that the ouzo erased some of the ragged nerves.
