It is definitely one of them for us!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Its my partners birthday today... while we don't really celebrate birthdays too much we generally still make a nice dinner and a cake or somthing. The first strike on the weekend is that we didnt really get one. My partner has been working 11 hour days all week and found out friday that our weekend would be cut short and we wouldnt get saturday off. There goes our plan for going to the first farmers market of spring and to the kids marimba earth day celebration. ( poo number one!) Also didn't get paid on payday because of temporary finance trouble with company... which ment that we didnt have groceries.( poo number two!)<br>
Woke up this morning on the birthday... had to plan to arrange for community car share ... car wouldnt start. ( need need need to have a car to get groceries because we only go in once a week or once every two weeks for a shop... including huge bottles for clean water!)( poo number three!) Arranged for a car to use from another neighbour( hooray.... right?!) and ds starts vomiting with a good ol stomach bug that we will probably have withing 24 hours or so!( poo number four five six plus) Got our goodies and prepped a beautiful dinner , go to pop it in the oven... and the oven isnt working! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

Oh, my.<br><br><br>
I think you should pitch a tent in the backyard and starting chewing on roots and berries before you starve to death or your house is struck by alien warheads <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

I guess the bonus is that we get to eat spaghetti for dinner!

Add the BIL calling to wish DP a happy birthday at 4 am! Waking everyone in the house up of course... what could he have been thinking?! (our house is about 900 square feet... not like he thought he could leave a message discreetly!)

I'm having one! House is a disaster. DS1 has tons of new bday presents but instead is playing by creating 'nests' around the house to play animal. You know- random crap and all the blankets thrown in big piles. ABS light going on in car. Then not. Then on. Late to preK pick up because of giant toddler poop and then endless funeral procession. And then bus blocks my car in the parking lot. And just everything. Make it stop!
