One of those days!

Have you ever had a day where you just felt behind all day! First of all, I woke up 30 minutes late this morning. Unfortunately, it wasn't one of those days where I could throw clothes on and get Mikayla ready and dropped off at school and then come back home and get ready. I had alot of things that I had to pack in today. Thankfully, I took a shower last night, so that was one thing I didn't have to worry about. I somehow managed to get Gavin fed, Mikayla dressed and me dressed in 40 minutes and out of the door in time. Mikayla did eat her breakfast in the car, though... That actually happens more than I would like to admit.

Once I got Mikayla to preschool, I realized that we had left her Easter basket at home. They were having an Easter Egg Hunt today and didn't want her to be without one. So I ran to CVS and paid $3 for a little basket - I didn't want to spend alot of money since I already had cute, matching baskets for the kids.
After driving back to school to take the basket to her, I ran to Target (my favorite store, lately) to get some things before her Easter party. They had some great clothing deals there this week. Their shorts for kids were on sale for $3.50 - I stock up on these every year. It's nice to have cute shorts that Mikayla can play in - with such a good price you don't freak out too much about stains on them. Their shoes were also on sale, so I stocked up on some cute sandals for Mikayla. I even found some cute shoes for Gavin. Well, while I was having so much fun finding good deals, I lost track of time and was almost late for Mikayla's party. The only reason I wasn't late is that I drove much faster down some backroads than I would care to admit. (I am really bad about this!)
Once I got to the party, I realized I forgot my camera. I was really bummed, but I included a picture at the top of Mikayla playing with some Easter playdough stuff that her teachers gave her.
After her party, we rushed home, because I had to make some food for Enrichment this evening at church. I am on the Enrichment Committee so I was supposed to be there at 5:30 to help set up. Jeremy was supposed to be home by 5 to be with the kids while I went there. Well, he thought I said I needed to leave at 5:30, so I was late for that as well. Thankfully, everything went well. It was a wonderful Enrichment Night and it was nice to have an evening with just adults.
Even with ending on the positive note, I am very glad this day is over!
