Yay, it's Easter. Celebrate... eggs... church... pastels... florals yaaaay, ok.
So let me kick this post off with a strange tale of our weird run of bad luck recently. It all started last Saturday...
A bottle of lotion busted in my purse and clogged up my phone.
I bought a new phone and found I wasted $25 on the wrong kind of pre-paid card to add minutes.
Phone service won't transfer, soooo- no phone.
Old phone kinda starts working, but phone service still won't transfer to the new phone.
Phone service still won't transfer.
Husband had a flat tire while out running errands.
A bottle of water busted in my purse and soaked my old phone that was already near death AND my camera (also chewing gum, some bribery candy for River, a bundle of tampons and my wallet).
I had removed the battery from my phone to let it dry but after seeing my husband was trying to call me on our land-line (which also doesn't work) I figured something must be up. Indeed he had ANOTHER flat a few towns over on his way from work. We managed to communicate (barely!) with texts.
I get home... aaaaaand
my laptop crashes.
After my Nieces' birthday party at a golf place in the mall, River threw about five limp-bodied, screaming hissy fits all the way to the car. At dinner I burned my fingertips on a pan I just took out of the oven. Then, that night I stubbed my pinky toe so hard on the kitchen table that it's still throbbing with pain and I'm pretty sure it's going to fall off soon.
I slept in rollers and got all gussied up for Easter, stepped outside and...
It can't get any worse than falling curls!!
NOOOOO!! My life is ruined! Forget the phone. Forget the laptop!
LOOK AT MY HAIR!
(Please realize I'm just kidding.)
EDIT: My husband just announced that we now have ANOTHER flat tire. That makes three, folks.
Something smells fishy... and it ain't me.
I showered last night.
Well here's what's keeping me sane through all this though:
I was able to save my phone and camera by drying them out in a bowl of rice. So I still have a phone, I can only text on it but it's better than nothing!
And I'm not sure what the heck is going on with the new phone and why I can't activate the darn thing. Also, we have a desktop computer and a friend recently sold us a tablet for super cheap so I'll survive quite nicely until I get my laptop fixed.
Here's the golf place I mentioned earlier. That's the birthday girl, my niece doing... golf things...
I would very much like to have this neon hippo head in my living room.
The great thing about letting a toddler play in an arcade is that you don't have to spend a dime. Just set them in front of something and watch 'em go. They don't know they're not actually playing the game.
Oh yeah, it's Cedar's first Easter!
Ok, that's it.
