Not very often (a little long)

Yesterday was one of Those days....I didn't want to get out of my comfortable warm bed...it was raining and cold out....I didn't want to get the kids up and go through the process of getting them ready for school and the mayhem of the morning.....but I did.

Then I had a busy day....a piano being delivered.....geek squad coming over to install a new tv and surround sound....a meeting with a couple of moms (at my house) from school to talk about a project for the new remodel of Megan's school....take Joseph to preschool and pick up....go to the grocery store....this all on top of the daily chores and playing and what not. This is why I wanted to stay in bed. But I didn't

So the piano comes at 9:30am.... I am excited.... it was free... I knew it needed alot of TLC. But I see potential and I think it will look nice....someday, but I was disappointed at how much TLC it needs, I need to say that again, it needs ALOT OF TLC.
When I went to look at it, it was covered with stuff so I wasn't able to look at ALL of it...now getting it here in our bare living room, you can see it ALL. I knew Brent would not be to happy and see it as it was and not the potential....but hopefully I can take care of it......

I continued to wait for geek squad to call or come, by 12:30, time to take Joseph to preschool, nothing, by the end of my meeting, now 2:00, nothing, by the time I pick Joseph up at 3:00, nothing, I go to the store, which was a Nightmare.... kids asking for EVERYTHING.... crying in the middle of the store.... I was hoping to be in and out in 20 minutes or less, I didn't need very many things.... it took us 40 min. to get out of the store.....aaaahhhhhhh..... get back home at about 4:00, put groceries away, still nothing from geek squad.

Mind you, in between all of this I am moving toys and trying to get things in order for the new tv and install, plus dealing with kids.

4:00 I am annoyed..... With the whole grocery store drama and just being on the go from the
time I got up and not hearing a thing from geeks.... I call them and they tell me it is UNSCHEDULED! Can you believe I wait all flippin' day and they aren't even coming when they even called friday and said they would.....long story short....I talked to 4 different people and got nowhere....they are coming out thursday.......all the while talking to them on the phone I am down on the corner of our street waiting for the bus and Megan...which usually shows up at about 4:35, it didn't get here until a couple minutes before 5:00!!!!! (they had a sub driver, not a nice one either says a couple of kids)

By now I am on my last nerves....I get up home....kids put a movie on -fine keep them busy for awhile.....Brent gets home.....disappointed by the piano and says so.....I am frazzled.....they also came to aerate our yard and seed the backyard and the note says "water everyday for 2-3 weeks"!.....I am asked "so are you going to water it everyday?!" .... I am more frazzled.....I change a dirty diaper.....I go in the bathroom....turn on the light and fan and have a good cry.......This is what does not happen to me very often.....

There are days that I feel annoyed or things aren't going to well, but I can usually get over it....but not yesterday.....I had had enough.....I get emotional just typing about it. It was just one of those days where everything just wears on you......I am not a real emotional person anyways, I don't cry often and I don't let things get to me....who knows what was going on with me yesterday.....

I finally composed myself and continued on... made dinner.....did the whole night routine.....I felt drained...

Today, is a new day though and I just want to move on. I am going to go eat lunch at school with all my kids with Megan, get Joseph a very much needed haircut, look for new pants or shoes for him also, and just try to have a better day.

It always feels good to just let emotions and thoughts out in black and white.

These are a few photos of our "new"piano....The bottom one shows how much TLC it needs, the whole thing looks alot like this, scratches, paint splattes, worn finish. Any suggestions? Maybe it doesn't look to bad, but I want it to look better.
And it will someday!!! so help me!!!
