Losing my marbles!

Today has been one of those mornings. Luke spilled a whole box of cheerios, smeared ketchup all over himself and his chair, climbed into the bathroom sink and then filled it up (fully dressed mind you)...all before 8:30 a.m. and usually with me in the room. He is just too quick! I finally headed to the store to buy some sale items and to be able to make large batches of pumpkin bread (it's the first day of autumn and I think I am going to start a new tradition of handing out pumpkin bread - my favorite fall treat! - on the first day of autumn).

I was trying to collect myself, looking at the ad and pulling out coupons as the kids were looking in the toy isle of Albertons. Suddenly, Luke had reached a bag of 100 marbles, bit through the bag and they spilled out, heading every which way direction down the isle. I groaned and sent the boys after them. A nice man was nearby and started helping. Embarassed, I thanked him, and he said not to worry about it, that he had three kids too. Though as he left, he laughed as he said, "Well, you can tell everyone today that you really did lose your marbles!"

Let me know if you find any extras rolling around - I am pretty sure I am still a few short!

We've all had days like that! Hope your afternoon is better!

At least now you can say that for real, right? It's funny how some days never end and some you wish wouldn't but they do anyway. Have a great day today!

My day was like that yesterday too. I needed to hit the park to unwind but didn't have time. Sometimes it almost seems scripted. How can that many crazy things happen one after another? I am glad the guy in the store was friendly and nice about the whole thing.
