Mad? Just kick it!

Very Brief.  Tired...  Today was so busy!  Ethan had Mother's Day Out, and I had a meeting at Clay's school for a 504 Plan for him.  Just some modifications for his classroom teacher (and language arts teacher).  Then on to deliver girl scout cookies, make a bank deposit, pick up more meter strips for Mary Claire, pick up my Banana Republic clothes, back to Target for a return, then to Wal-Mart for a few more groceries, and finally to pick up Ethan!  I got a lot done!!  Then to the car wash, home, made dinner (beef stew on the stovetop), picked up the kids, took them for drinks at Sonic, took them all to Clay's Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor's appointment (long story, longer appt, not going there-the nurse wanted to know why they were seeing him today!  Umm..because you told me to come back in 6 months?  Do I HAVE to be here?), home to eat, Ethan icky poop, kids baths, some Olympics, and bed.  I'm SO tired!  Did I say that already?

And Ethan fell down (again) off a bar stool.  Ches hates them, wants new ones with backs, but the only ones I like are $300 each, and we have five. : (  Blech.  So, he was mad (yeah, at the bar stools) so he kicked one over after Ethan fell.  So mature.  I got all mad, and we aren't talking so much.  I don't like for the kids to see aggression like that, and he apologized to them.  I get mad, but I don't kick things.  Ugh.  And then he was ultra-calm.  He has the patience of Job, then cracks up.  I think he's mad we haven't already replaced them, maybe he's mad at himself.  And Ethan was up there to get closer to the cake.  What a day.

Ok, I looked at the barstools. I liked the expensive ones. In a dream world, I want wood, no fabric, maybe dark wood or ivory distressed, I want Ballard Designs barstools. I know what I want. I just would rather take a small vacation than spend $1500 on barstools. : P I'll keep looking. If I get a shower, we could run down there today. I have to pick Mary Claire up at 3 to take her to the orthodontist, but Ethan doesn't tap, and our company isn't coming (I don't think!). I'll call you! : )
