My Day

Could it get any worse?

Today went from bad to worse. I keep wondering what else is going to happen. We started out okay. I got up early so I could get to church early to set up my Sharing Time activity. Just about the time I was ready to leave Brad had locked the bedroom door to keep the boys out, then he came out of the room and closed the door. So we all were locked out. And of course it's the one door we can't get open from the outside without a key! So I yell to my Dad for help, having never dealt with this kind of situation, I hoped he could get us out of it quickly; but no, he could not. So he proceeded to start taking the window out so we could put one of the boys through it and open the door. Brad stayed behind with Brent and Jake because his clothes were in the locked bedroom and he didn't think it would be right to show up at church in his garments.

Well at this point I grabbed Teegan and left for church. (Thankfully all my lesson and sharing time stuff was in the laundry room.)

When we got to Primary Teegan had an accident in his pants so Brad (who finally made it to church) took him home and Brent ended up giving Teegan's talk. Then by the time they were ready for me to present my sharing time acitvity I only had 5 minutes to give a 20-30 minute presentation.

And now we're onto class where I spent most the time reminding one of my girls that we don't kick the walls in Heavenly Father's house. I'm suprised I got the lesson taught and the other kids actually payed attention enough to remember what I was teaching.

Finally church was over and I came home to find that the window broke in the fiasco of trying to get into the bedroom and I had sheets to change and some mess to vacuum up. Which isn't done yet and it's 6:30.

Then I was in the bedroom for ten minutes and the boys were playing quietly, or so I thought. Jake had come in the room and was messing around so I sent him out while I finished checking my email from Carla (she left for a month out on a carrier). What I didn't notice was that he had taken a huge garbage bad full of paper shreds out of my room and spread it all over the family room. I did manage to clean it up with grin.

I think if I don't laugh about what a "Murphy" day I have had I might cry.

So I hope you get a laugh out of My Day. I sure have.
