How was your day?

Being in my 30's now I definitely think I feel a lot more comfortable in my skin (for the most part) even the sagging skin on my belly! haha I think I have learned to laugh at myself and appreciate myself even on the days where I get it ALL wrong! Yesterday was a day where I got it ALL wrong :) There are certain things in life I have accepted like my children NEVER have matching socks on, I mean never! Even Chandler who cant wear shoes to hide the fact that she has mis-matched socks on goes to school with one pink sock, one yellow sock today. I'm ok with that. I know that my laundry will never fully get done, EVER! It sits clean and unfolded on a couch and there are days we make headway and days where I have to re-wash the same clothes 3 times because they sat in the washer for too long. That's my life.... I have learned that this stuff comes with the territory of being a working mom to 3 kids and at the end of the day if mis-matched socks and piles of laundry are my biggest problems I have had a SUCCESSFUL day!

So back to yesterday (side note we have all been passing around the stomach bug since Friday, just keep that in mind)
I love to document these days because they are the "real" days, in my "real" like.

Got woken up at 6 am (didn't have to be up till 7:30)

Was puked and pooped on by 6:45 and in the bath with my baby who likes to smack my less than perky boobs the WHOLE time she is taking a bath! I think she likes to watch them shake! HA!!!

7:30 Running around getting people clothes because Oh, Tex has the stomach bug and we ALL know how Tex is with the stomach bug....

9:00 took both kids to the dentist (need I say more)

10:30 Decided to be "fun" mom and take the kids thru McDonalds and go to Palmer's school to eat lunch with him Ann Mason and his buddies. Apparently, I didn't receive the memo that told me that parents weren't allowed to bring McDonald's!!! So, the teachers assistant hurried up to me and whispered "You brought McDonalds?" Um, yeah! Teachers Assistant "You aren't allowed to do that!" So, I took the walk of shame with both kids down to Palmer's room to eat alone in quarantine! (Mom Fail!)

So, I finally got to work and had to explain why I had this on my face.....

(see the sore on the upper right hand side) upper lip waxing gone wrong!!! I like to blame it on my neighbor Sarah! haha But really I did the waxing myself, I just used her stuff. I am assuming it is a chemical burn but I am hoping it gets a lot better and SOON!

As if the mysterious and questionable looking mark above my lip wasn't enough I realized that all of my knuckles were dry and bleeding probably from washing my hands 105 times a day to keep the germs away! I had to resort to putting lotion on my hands while wearing moisture locking gloves at work! Here I am! SO glad I didn't have hardly any appointments or clients come in yesterday! I looked like a freak show!

My day didn't end until late getting home from work at 8 and picking up pedialyte, diapers and phenegran for the sickies at home~! To say yesterday was long and tiring was an understatement oh and I ended this glorious day with getting the stomach bug myself last night! (luckily it was a light case)

I just have to laugh. I never claim to have it all together, far from that actually but yesterday takes the cake in mom fails and beauty fails!

So far today has gone better but it is only 11 am, we shall see!
