stinky rotten kind of day

I know the great scheme of things, it's not that bad of a day, but I am frustrated so it is a big deal at the moment. My dumb internet connection keeps dropping. I thought it was the port in the monitor that was on the fritz, so I switched the connection to a different port. Nope, still dropping. That is if it can actually find the silly connection at all!

Then I tried to upload some pictures off of my memory card. Nope. Can't get the computer to find my card reader. I have tried every USB port that I have and nothing! Even tried hooking the camera straight to the computer, nope. Can't get the pictures off of my camera! Man... this stinks.

Plus the weather today has been simply horrible. Started as rain, turned to very heavy wet snow. Almost didn't make the turn onto the street when dropping Kira off at school. We slide AROUND the corner. Very gently and made it okay.

Then it was just plain slippery and sloppy when I had to drop Alex off at school. Yuck. We had a heck of a time getting out of the driveway. I had to slide back to the end of the driveway and get a running start to get out into the road. Thank goodness no one was coming from either direction when I flew out of our driveway!! Felt a little like the Dukes of Hazzard getting away from Roscoe P. Coltrain. (totally dating myself there)

When I went back out to pick him up, it was raining. And by raining, I mean buckets of the wet stuff slamming down from the clouds. Not fun. Drive home was very very sloppy with the heavy wet snow being melted by the downpour. Pant legs went, feet a little damp since you were just walking through major puddles. No way around them. Alex got into his jammies and is quite happy.

I worked on some laundry since that is a never ending project. Seriously, how much clothing does one family of four need? And why do we have to wear every piece of it every week?? Small exaggeration there... but I'm sure you feel my pain.

Went to the school to make copies for the PTA Ice Cream Social on March 7th. Trying to get ahead of things. We'll see how long that lasts. You know... best laid plans!!

The rain was still coming down like there was no tomorrow when Kira and I made our escape from school. Now my pant legs are dripping they are so wet and she has already changed into jammies. I think my kids have the right idea here!

Between computer issues and the dumb weather. I can see an early bedtime for me. That might help with the attitude I seem to have sprouted as the day progressed.

One ray of sunshine for me today, I am working on a very happy project for a friend of mine. I can't say what it is, because I know she reads this and I want to surprise her. I will say, I love the smell of mod podge!!! oh yeah baby.
