The Project: Make a float about a state. Al got California. It is due today of course.
Saturday: "When are we going to start on my project?"
"We'll go tomorrow to get the supplies."
"Shhh. Mommy went out last night. We'll do it later."
Sunday evening: "Oh shit. The stores are closed."
Monday evening: "Oh shit! The printer broke!"
Last night, the day before it is due:
4:30 p.m.- LP arrives home, to find me desperately trying to apply pipe cleaners onto a shoebox. He tries to cop a feel, I punch him.
5-6 p.m. – Soccer Practice. I stay at home, desperately trying to apply pipe cleaners. Frigging pipe cleaners!
6-6:30 p.m. – Dinner. LP and I stage a "California Fact" Dance Off to see who has the better ideas. Ironically enough we come up with pretty similar facts.
6:40 p.m. - LP decides to go and BUY A NEW PRINTER. Oh I wish I was joking.
6:30-7 p.m. – More pipe cleaner application. To no avail. Wrap the shoebox, apply foam backing that does not stick. A lot of cursing. Rug is getting in the way, still singing High School Musical songs from the concert Monday night.
(*side note* The concert was SO much fun, and the girls had a blast. And Mommy enjoyed the boy who replaced the original Troy, who is busy off shooting a remake of "Hairspray" ***shudder** another frickin remake!)
7-8 p.m. – The new printer is calibrating.
8:10 p.m. – Still calibrating.
8:15 p.m. – Friggin calibrate already!
8:25 p.m. – LP stomps off as I get anxious with him trying to apply text to a picture and he is taking for-ev-er. Hello? We have NOTHING done. The picture can wait!
8:30 p.m. – Divorce proceedings begin.
8:35 p.m. - LP and I are laughing hysterically as we both attempt to provide spellings for 'sequoia'.
8:40 p.m. – Al starts crying because “You and Daddy aren’t taking this seriously and I’m going to FAIL!”
8:50 p.m. – I figure out a way to put those pipe cleaners on. Just shove them in the box!
8:55 p.m. – All the pictures are printed out! Woo hoo!
9:00 p.m. – The Golden Gate Bridge is sagging. Let me rig something up.
9:15 p.m. – One more interesting fact and…..WE ARE DONE!!
Hooooooooly Cow that was a task.
This morning on the way to school the Golden Gate Bridge fell down. I'm sure Fergie will do a song about it.
