OMG. I'm so tired of packing. At least the last 2 times (in June and early July) were only clothes and toiletries. THIS time it's ALL the things! Clothes, bedding, food prep, food, toiletries including towels, etc. I'm losing my effing mind!
I am so the Mean Mommy today. I'm fed up with: the 3-yo demanding food in between meals and not eating his meals; both kids directly disobeying my requests; the 6-yo refusing to say Thank You to friends for parties he is invited to (why does he act so entitled and ungrateful???). Their behavior is incredibly disappointing and makes me FURIOUS!
Yesterday was the worst day ever. After a really emotional day, and a series of driving obstacles, I missed the checkin cutoff for luggage essentially missing our flight. Had a massive ugly cry at the Virgin counter. Got a hotel with an outdoor pool we can't use because of thunderstorms. The kids are bouncing off the walls. And my grandma died. =(
My grandmother had a massive stroke today. I fear the end of her life is near. My mother is driving to the hospital tomorrow. I'm glad(?) I'm on the east coast when all of this is happening, I just really hadn't planned on going to a funeral on this trip. =(
