Wow, so many guesses as to who is who! So fun! Most of them were correct - Katie is on the left, Charlotte on the right. As someone mentioned, Katie's birthmark is a giveaway, if all else fails. But it does seem to be the consensus that they look a LOT alike to everyone. I wonder if some day I will look back at their baby pictures and have no idea who I'm looking at.... I'll just have to lie. "Oh sure, that's, um... Katie. RIGHT, yes, definitely....." LOL.
So today, today, today. Today sucked. Really, really badly.
I try to be all 'zen' about life now, I really do. I try so hard. To keep things in perspective. To say, this is nothing! I've survived so much worse, I will not freak out about small things, I will not let the little every day problems beat me. I understand what life is all about now. I'm even sort of holier than thou about it... all the little people who worry about piddly little problems, they're so naive, so oblivious....... I know problems!
But today, it tested me. And my whole zen attitude went flying out the window. Zen is for suckers. I FREAKED out.
It wasn't when everyone decided 5:30 am was a great time to wake up.
It wasn't when Katie woke up soaked in pee.
It wasn't when Charlotte was covered in poop, and Katie put her hand in it.
It wasn't when Katie threw up all over my mother at the food court at the mall, and we had to leave.
It wasn't when the air conditioner in my living room blew the fuse for the second time.
It wasn't even when I tripped over the baby gate (for the third time) and went flying, breaking a glass vase, bruising my leg and arm and scaring my poor babies.
No, it was none of those things.
It was when I discovered the SPIDER INFESTATION....
IN THE NURSERY.
Tomorrow has just got to be a better day. Got to.
Wait, did you say 'spiders'?
That's it... we're out of here.
