I appreciate your thoughtfulness Scarlett, but when I said I wanted some artwork for your walls, this isn't quite what I had in mind.
ai yai yai yai!
so yeah, anyway. the above happened last Monday, the same day I had my interview. (you'll see why that last tidbit of information is important once you get to the end of this post.) I'm pretty sure, like 100% positive, that Rowan was an accomplice, although he was too embarrassed to admit it, nor was he going to pose for a picture. yeah. he obviously knows that scribbling on the wall is indeed naughty. Scarlett, on the other hand, was as proud as a peacock, boasting over her latest masterpiece by excitedly yelling, "look what I did mommy! lookit!" oh, why isn't that so sweet of you, dear! now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go sob into my pillow.
attention: whoever can guess the title of their masterpiece gets to take these two monkeys for a week. actually I changed my mind. how about a year? I promise, they're really sweet and funny! artistic, too! heh. oh, and I almost forgot. each guess will be counted as correct! ready, set, go!
also on this same day, Scarlett decided to take it upon herself and change her own diaper. which was number two, I might add. let's just say it wasn't pretty.
I wanna say the kitchen sink nearly overflowed somewhere in the course of this same day as well. again, thanks to Scarlett. as it was, I had to sop up a huge water and soap mess.
aaand as I was blow drying my hair on, you guessed it, this same day (do you see a trend here?), I happened to peer out the window only to see the two punks running around on top of the van. which wouldn't have been a big deal except that Rowan had a pair of pliers in his hand. no, just kidding, it was a big deal. aghhhhh! be still my heart.
by the time I arrived at my interview I was so frazzled that it took all that I could not to wrap my arms around the lady who was interviewing me and beg her to "please, for the sake of my sanity, just hire me! I promise, I'm not as crazy as I look!"
fortunately, I saved us both the embarrassment and instead, the interview went smoothly and well, what do you know?! I was offered a job! it's very part time, like max one to two evenings a week. just something to get me out of the house so I can catch a quick mental break, more than anything else.
I'm pretty sure the entire household will benefit from this.
