Most of us are in the same boat today. We are taking down Holiday decorations, and trying to get back into the swing of “real life”. Also known as WORK.
Today, like many other days was a typical work day, but only worse. It was a Monday but on a Tuesday, which should never happen. We need to just skip all the way to the next week, and not muddy up the waters for the rest of the days. Plus it was the dreaded first day back to work and school for most families. While this day already had the odds stacked against it, let me tell you how the last 36 hours of our lives went.
All Monday, hung-over from celebrating New Years. For no good reason as 2016 was a bastard of a year, and should have been given back.
Now, let me take you to 8PM where our daughter trips, falls, cuts her tongue open and we end up at the emergency room with a tongue that will not stop bleeding. Sounds bad right? Just wait.
Get home at around 11PM, and start getting ready for bed, everyone is getting settled in. Daughter jumps in our bed (she’s 4) at 11:30. For some reason when this girl sleeps, she is only comfortable if her feet are pressed against my throat or face. For those reasons, i sleep in the guest room. Not bad enough?
I get to sleep around 12:30PM, where i am awakened around 2AM by our 9 month, 110 pound, labrador retriever puppy who is selfishly raping a hot pink 4 ft stuffed unicorn in the upstairs hallway. This is his guilty pleasure. We would stop him, but he likes the big girls. So now, i am trying to wrestle a 4 ft tall soaking wet unicorn away from a horny 9 month old puppy, who doesn’t care that i have to get up at 5AM for work. I lock the unicorn in the closet for safe keeping, and go back to sleep. (Now 4AM)
Again, awaked by wimpers. From a baby. A labrador baby. Missing his girlfriend. At 4:45AM. Then I go to work.
With all this being said, after now returning home from the office exhausted and miserable, i can confidently say i love my life and love my family. If i didn’t i would have left these crazies a long long time ago!
