I Wanna Get Away

Ever had one of those days when you just wanted to run away? That was me yesterday. Everywhere I turned there were disgruntled customers and messes to clean up. No, I am not talking about at work. Sassy & Co. was in full blown drive mama crazy mode. In just 2 hours I was ready to turn in my 2 weeks notice. Who am I kidding? I was ready to turn in my 2 hours notice. It seemed as soon as I made one customer happy, another customer had issues. Each mess I cleaned up was followed by a bigger mess. Little Red dumped the toy basket in the living room at least 10 times. Miss Sassypants was just so daggum bored. But apparently not bored enough to feed the dogs, fold her laundry or lift a finger in general. Mr. Sass had a hard day and his legs, back, arms, feet and hair (ha!) were hurting. He complains more than any girl I know. Never mind the fact that I had zero sleep the night before, am cramping like a football player in the 4th quarter and had an exceedingly challenging day at work. My brain and body hurts, people.

I can guarantee you customer service will be closed tonight. I'm fresh outta compassion. Heck, I might not even go home. Think they'll miss me?

We just relocated from Denver to Kansas City and for 7 months, I was on my own. Husband moved to start his new job and I stayed back to sell the house. Nearly lost my freaking mind. 3 kids, 2 in diapers, and no help. Sometimes I felt like I just walked from one room to the next like a zombie picking up toys or cleaning up messes!

The husband came to visit every few weeks and when he would, I would escape to the movies or to shop, etc. He had the audacity one day to ask if I'd wait until naptime to make his day easier.

BRAVE man. I very much understand your need to get away!

I am three days into summer vacation and already want to quit my day job. If I have another kid climbing on me, I might run out of the house screaming!!!
