It was a rocky start to the morning. I woke up to a messy house because I passed out last night before straightening up (which throws me off because I’m pretty anal), the kids were super whiny, the dog was hyper, and I’ve got contractors using a jack hammer on my bathroom floor. Not a good combo when you already have a splitting headache. But since I’m trying to say goodbye to my so-called Dr. Crankenstein, I came up with a plan that would keep me happy and sane: Flee the scene!
I packed up the kids and headed straight to Dunkin’ Donuts. While their coffee isn’t quite as satisfying as my Caramel Machiatto, they do have munchkins. The mere mention of the word gets my kids out the door and into their car seats in record time! After our DD run, we went to the park, and I bumped into someone I haven’t seen in about 15 years. It was great to see her–and even nicer to hear that I haven’t aged (especially after what my son said last week)!
And I’ve got exciting plans for the afternoon (read this with a sarcastic intonation). We’re going to Michael’s craft store to buy some multi-colored chocolate wafers and molds to make our own Easter candy. Hopefully it’ll be a fun project. I know eating it will be! And since chocolate is known to be a natural mood-booster, I’m expecting that it will crush out any crankiness that remains. We’ll see!
