It's just been one of those days. It started this morning when I took Logan to school. I wanted to walk to school- he didn't want to so we drove. I found a parking spot up front, go to pull in and some lady is taking up both spaces! She's now in her car trying to back out but I'm in her way now. The way the spaces are angled, I can't just pull out (have to pull out onto the road) and keep going. I had to pull out, drive back across the tracks, do a U turn in the church parking lot and head back towards the school.

Got home and Ian is still whining about a popsicle! He wanted one this morning and dh told him to ask me. Uhhh no. You can not have a popsicle at 8am. Why didn't he tell him that? Then I heard more whining and more whining about various other things.

Went to pick up Logan and decided it was too damn hot to walk as we had to go to tumbling tonight and I didn't want to be sweaty/stinky. Now Ian's whining about not walking to school. Oh and I got bit by an ant waiting for school to let out.

Later on I sent the boys to clean up their room. I popped my head in and Ian is butt naked. He looks at me and says "I didn't peepee in my underwear." Yeah, that means he did. I sent him straight to the bathroom to sit and told Logan to keep cleaning. He's been having too many "accidents" lately and it's really getting on my nerves. He knows he has to go but he doesn't want to stop what he's doing and go. Now I hear from Logan that his floor is wet. Ugh!!! I wondered why all the shoes were neatly placed in matching pairs in a circular area of their room when I popped my head in. Now I know. Ian had put them there on top of where he had peed!!!! He was trying to hide it. So now I have to wipe up pee, wipe the shoes, spray Clorox disinfectant and dry it all while trying to make dinner because we have to leave for tumbling class in less than an hour. I was so mad!

Got dinner done, had the boys sit and eat, got Logan dressed for tumbling, called dh to see if I had to drop off Ian at his office, ate my dinner, fed Bella and when dh walked in, we walked out. Phew. Got to tumbling and the minimal air conditioning they have is apparently broken. It was broken last Thursday too so I thought to bring my Squeeze Breeze fan in to keep Bella cool and me as well. I was melting even with the fan! Logan looked like he been in a shower after he was done with class. It must have been 100 degrees in there.

Now we're home, Bella is in bed, the boys are bathed and getting ready for bed and I still have to go grocery shopping. What a day!
