I Want to Run Away — So Sue Me

sea0583l

Do you ever have those days when you just want to run away from your life for the day?  Today is one of those days for me.  My son is home sick from school today after a night of vomiting (yes, that’s right — more puking! Seriously, I don’t think I really deserve all this barf, but maybe it’s just me.) Why does it seem that my kids always pick the absolute busiest times to get sick?  I was supposed to have a parent/teacher conference with my daughter’s kindergarten teacher this morning, get Mother’s Day presents squared away, host a lunchtime playdate, go to a nail appointment, run a thousand errands and drive the soccer carpool.  At no point in today’s “to do” list did I leave any spare time for vomit.  I guess now, I have to chuck that list right out the window and swallow the reality that we will be stuck inside all day long.  (And it would just HAVE to be an absolutely gorgeous day outside today, too, wouldn’t it?!)  So, if my neighbors happen to see me running down the sidewalk like a wild-haired, cross-eyed crazy woman later this afternoon, will you please forward this post to them and explain that I’m simply looking for a temporary evacuation route from my life for a bit?  Thanks!
