Drama Queen

Sometimes I wonder if anything can happen in my life without drama? I guess not, so I'm officially crowning myself Drama Queen of the year. Don't get me wrong--I hate drama and do most everything in my power to minimize it, but it just doesn't work out.

Do I have examples? Oh yeah...and these are just from today. I made hummingbird food, my mom mistakes it for water and dumps it out. I wash sheets and make Wyatt's bed, he goes in there and totally unmakes it (Why???). I wash clothes, Amelia spits up on them while I'm walking with her past the clothes basket!

And this wins best drama of the day: UPS Freight was a no-show two times last week. Today was their third appointment. Of course, today, Doug gets stuck in traffic. So, at 6 pm, the 18 wheeler is parked on the road in front of my house, blocking the entire lane; thunder is booming closer and storm winds are blowing; I can't get my father-in-law on the phone to come help the delivery guy wheel the washer down my driveway; and I have the three kids who it'll take 5 minutes for me to get loaded up (and that's a conservative estimate if Wyatt balks at the car seat or if it starts raining). D-R-A-M-A.

On a less dramatic note, I told you all last week about one of the Christian sister bloggers, Ginger, whom I'd met recently. Well, this week, the other sister, Rena of the blog "Insert Grace Here", is celebrating her one year blogaversary. She recently blessed me with a post about chasing rabbits and how sometimes we get sidetracked from the Lord's mission for our day. She's worth a visit...and she has some funny toddler stories, too.

  1. Oh, how I feel your pain!

    Frustration over such days is a hard thing for me to surrender. I suppose I feel justified. Hate those days...

    Pray today is calm for you.

    Thanks for the shout-out! I'm so glad I found your blog...

    We need to plan to meet for lunch one day with the kiddos.
