Let's face it. Not every day can be a great day on the farm, right?
Today started out so innocent and great. I got Evan up and to the school bus on time and got Sierra ready and watching cartoons with about 35 minutes before needing to leave and take her to school. Here is part one of my day...I take a medication that I have been taking for quite some time now to help with my blood pressure and when I miss a day, it gives me a drunken like head-ache. Not the kind that hurts, but one that makes me feel like I have had about 30 drinks to0 many. When I turn my head, it takes my eyes and the rest of my senses about 7 seconds to follow. Not necessarily a great feeling, plus it makes it hard to get things done. Guess what, I forgot to take my medicine yesterday and now my head is driving me crazy trying to suck the medication out of my body up into my head to control the funky feeling I have had since waking up. YUCK!
After taking Sierra to school, I went to the grocery store. I do not like to go grocery shopping. In fact, in my book it is right up there with going to the dentist. Yes, I pretty much hate it. Anyways, I got that done and came home and put away the groceries. I was in a little bit of a hurry because I needed to still feed animals since I didn't get that done this morning. So, groceries away and then out to feed. No problem! Done in time to change back into decent clothes, not chicken, cow or pig poop stained clothes, and off to pick up Sierra from school.
Now picture this...since Gordon is working and the kids are in school, I haven't had any conversation for a few hours. Other than telling the checker at Safeway that my day was going ok. I am in the car, thinking about the fact that the end of my quiet time is almost over when all of a sudden....Yeow! Yeow! From the back of the Suburban the sound of a person being consumed by a pack of hungry wolves erupts. Now, you know how you get scared by something and you start screaming and then realize what it is that scared you, so you should stop screaming but can't? Oh yeah baby. That's right. I CAN'T STOP SCREAMING!!! AHHHH....AHHHH....AHHHH! Finally, I calm down and guess what jumps at me from the back? Yep, a harmless little creature know as our pet cat, Cassie!!! Holy crap! Dumb animal must have climbed in when I was unloading groceries and got stuck in there. Of course, instead of letting me know he was in there, he waits until I am half way to Sierra's school before letting it be known. He must have been terrified of being in a moving vehicle.
Yeah, I know you are all laughing hysterically at the thought of me screaming uncontrollably about a little ol' cat, but really! I could have had a heart attack or my vehicle could have gone off the road. Who knows. Anything could have happened to me. Don't you all feel a little bad about laughing at my misfortune? NO? Well, just remember, it could have happened to any one of us. How would you have handled it? Not by screaming? Yea, right!! Dream on. At least Sierra thought I was the best mommy in the world by bringing her cat to help me pick her up from school.
And no, my headache did not suddenly get better! Screaming actually made it worse. Whew, I need to go put my feet up for a while and try to regain my composure.
