Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Ya know, I'm not much for cloning. But I could certainly use about three of me this weekend.

I had yesterday off, and so did the girls. I hear Fate laughing now.
So off we go to shop and pay bills and ogle hot people and yell out the window at passersby and crank the radio so loud the van vibrated and walk roughly sixteen hundred miles at the local mall.
I had the first two on my list. Apparently the girls covered the rest of them.
Let's just say it was a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG day. Because just when we finished shopping, it was time to head back to the house to ready ourselves for the school's Fall Carnival.
And when we finished getting ready, off to the school we went. Now. The school is a small one. Which I like and dislike. And the Fall Carnival is always held in the Ag Building. If you have NO idea what an Ag Building no further. You'll have no idea what the hell I'm talking about for the next couple of paragraphs.
We arrive early. Because the chickens are all about getting there early and then promptly checking everyone else out. There were hardly ANY kids dressed up. SERIOUSLY~!
The girls became disillusioned, and I was irritated. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
But I sucked it up and moved on. The carnival started at 6:30 pm. Supposed to end at 9:30 pm, I believe.
But I had to leave around nine and take MC to a friend's house to spend the night for a Halloween party. So I leave OC and BC there and shuffle off MC into the night. Then I head BACK to the glorious Ag building to watch the heiney end of the festivities and prepare for clean-up.
Let me explain something. ALL monies raised from the carnival go to the separate classes for their collective hallowed Senior Trip. That's all good. So everyone is supposed to participate. I get that.
But BC signed up for (or was signed up for-stories vary) the clean-up shift.
I WORK Saturday. And wait! Not only that...I have to go in early because I have to leave work at take Oldest Chicken back to the college so she can get on a bus and go to Dallas to check out the King Tut exhibit.
By the end of last night, I'm a tired, tired girl. But can I sleep? Oh hell no. Not to mention my room is ladybug central. But that's a blog for another time.
As for today, I had to be at work at eight so I could take time to run OC to the college. Then I had to pick up MC and bring her back with me to work. So that was my lunch. Lovely, huh? After work, we will be going grocery shopping. Then I will promptly go home and die. If I'm lucky. pft
Tomorrow will be fetching OC and hearing about her travels. God, and I KNOW there was something else. *tapping finger*
It'll come to me, I'm sure. In the dead of night when I wake with my heart pounding and fear in my eyes.
My golden lining?
I took Monday off with some Comp time. Don't think I'm not hugging THAT thought closely to my chest.

I hope you were able to enjoy your time and write your heiny off!!! I'm off today too but the monsters are driving me nuts. (They're out of school since they use the buildings as voting locations.)
