It's just little things but I think I need a day out of the house...After Michael being gone all weekend, the week started out okay. He took Monday off, we did a little shopping and took Zeke and Olivia to lunch with their Applebees certificates. Tuesday the bad weather started and so we were stuck inside for a few days. That is also the day my washer broke. Wednesday there was no school and I got another washer. Wednesday night Zane threw up. This morning Maddi threw up. I also am babysitting all day today and tomorrow. Today I spent the entire day doing laundry. During one of my drying loads I heard some clanging in the dryer and discovered Makenna's ipod. It is ruined. I feel horrible. I tell them all the time to empty their pockets and I was in such a rush to get caught back up with the laundry that I didn't take the time to check everything. She just bought it 6 weeks ago with her money that she had been saving. She listened to it all the time. I can't afford to buy her another one, she doesn't have the money to buy another one right now. It was just a little ipod shuffle that only costs $50 but that's huge to her. Anyways, now I don't want to tell her when she gets home because I know what will happen. She already is having a hard time with all the emotions and excitement of Christmas and her baptism. This will put her over the edge for a few days. Anyways, I know it could be worse. I just feel bad. I really need to go shopping and get groceries but I can't. It's below freezing out there and I have sick kids. Tonight we have swimming lessons. Tomorrow I am babysitting again. Saturday we are doing pictures on the sleigh, then Makenna's baptism and then I have a church thing that night. Hopefully everyone else will stay healthy so we won't have that to deal with too.
Sorry about the downer blog. It's one of those days:)
