One of those days . . .

1. I am way more annoyed than I should be about a snarky comment made by a work colleague today. Mostly, I'm annoyed at the herd of people who walked into the meeting right after said snarky comment, so I didn't have the opportunity to respond.

2. I am trying to get the house cleaned up because tomorrow we have friends coming in to town. MrWheezy and I are very happy to see our close friends. They have twin three-year-old boys who are Fred and George in training, and an almost two-year-old girl who is more of a handful than her brothers combined. These kids are my adoptive nephews and niece and I love them dearly and am glad to see them. I am far less glad to be babysitting them in my house while their parents attend a wedding on Saturday. They are all currently potty training, and not being overly successful at it.

3. While cleaning, I thought I would make myself a cup of tea--relaxing, right? Apparently I spilled something on the burner last night which began smoking and set off our fire alarm. Usually I turn off our fire alarm at our alarm panel for the house. The panel is not currently functioning, because we have it disconnected while we are having a very expensive leak repaired. I didn't know how to turn off the smoke detector! So with this extraordinarily loud alarm going off, I called MrWheezy at work to ask him how to turn the @#$% thing off. He told me to get the step stool and unscrew the thing and hit the button. I got the step stool . . . and standing on tiptoe on the top step, could not reach the thing. I grabbed a kitchen chair, which was taller, and tried holding on to the door frame to be MORE on tippy-toe, and still couldn't reach the !@#$ thing. Finally, I whacked it with the handle of the swiffer (mop) I was using and it shut up. I really hope I didn't break it, but at least I can hear myself think. Forget the tea, I'm breaking out the merlot. ;)

*hugs my flist for listening to me vent*

It does sound like this has not been your day. Relax while you can and enjoy the little people who are coming to visit. They will be going home soon enough.

Very true. I know I will have fun when they are here (I always do) I'm just in a bad mood. Maybe the twins will even inspire a little person Fred and George story . . . ;)

My fire alarm went off last night too... from excessive grease smoke... luckily all it took was me waving my hand in front of it to shut it up

I'm trying to get my house clean for weekend guests, too! Bleh!

The only time I clean is when guests are coming. I hate cleaning.

aww, I'm so sorry hon. It sounds like you've had a rough day. Wine is an excellent idea. And cake. :)

Thank you. Cake sounds like a good idea, but I don't have any. We do have ice cream sundae fixin's though . . . ;)

*Hugs you back* That's what flists are for right -- to listen to your vents and sympathize. God knows I do it enough. Speaking of which...

Have a good day with your friends tomorrow!
