A Series of Unfortunate Events

Seriously did my luck run screaming? Here's my last week....

Thursday: Our TV died. We have had this TV for 5 years and now it just DIED! And we just bought a couch so no money to buy a new we are left with the 18" that's in our room. Oh well. Not too bad right?

Friday: Dallas and Kaden were wrestling, it was so cute I was so happy that they were playing so nicely together. Then Kaden starts screaming and runs to Peter, Peter then started to tell him to buck up, then he saw the bruise starting to form on his cheek. By bedtime he had a black eye.

Saturday: Kaden decided to try walking down the front steps with out holding on to anything. Needless to say he didn't make it and landed flat on his FACE. I thought it was going to be hamburger. Luckily he only got a fat lip.

Sunday: A day of rest. It truly was. No accidents. Thank goodness.

Monday: First day of Spring Break. Keep my fingers crossed. Then the screaming started. I hear Kira say, "Mom can you get a band aid, Kadens bleeding." Great....Kaden got his finger slammed in the door and had a chunk of skin taken off the pad of his finger. Poor guy...he cried all day.

Tuesday: Where are my keys? I NEVER loose my keys, NEVER. I always hang them up. As a kid my mom always lost her keys, so I have been very careful about loosing my keys. The problem is the kids grab the keys and go get the mail and then don't put them back. I couldn't find them anywhere! We had an apt at 10am and I started looking at 8. I finally found them in the new couch in a hole they fell through at 9:53 am. We were a little late but I HATE being late. Ok so not too bad right? Then Kira was playing outside when we got back and fell and scraped her knee and hands. For kids this is a normal thing, for Kira its the end of the world as she knows it. She screamed for an hour. And was still whimpering by bed time.

Wednesday: Ok lets turn this around. I'm not going anywhere today. I did really well I got Logans closet cleaned put in two dressers and organized their clothes. Then I decided I was going to do laundry and match my 3 baskets full of socks. Ok so if I'm going to do that I'm gonna watch Hello Dolly. I've been wanting to watch it since Wall-E came out. I got all settled and got 1 basket of matched socks and two more to go by the end of the movie. I went to go get Kaden some milk and passed the kids bathroom. The door was closed the light was on and it sounded like the shower was on. I don't have a shower curtain in there yet so I rushed in. First step was in an inch of water. Not the shower. It was the toilet overflowing and still running. I rushed over and turned the water off. Kaden followed me in and slipped and hit the back of his head on the floor and was wet...He started screaming, Dallas then scared starts to cry. Logan and Kira come running and they both go grab towels. I ask Logan to go check downstairs to see if any water leaked through. He yells that its all over the kitchen table. I run downstairs and water is pouring in a waterfall like manner from the light fixture onto the table onto the chairs and onto the floor in a huge pool of water. AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! Ok so now I have 8 holes in my ceiling and carpet up from the floor trying to dry and 4 loads of towels to wash and dry. FABULOUS.

Yep my luck ran screaming!
