My day...

My 9 yr old soon to be step-daughter refused to take herself to the bathroom. She wanted to pee outside with the dog. I sent her inside the house. Upon returning to the house, I found a trail of "wet" from the front door to the bathroom, and then to the kitchen and to the stairs. She came in, didn't make it to the toilet...so she proceeded to walk through the place eventually hiding her wet clothes in a plastic bag and shoved them into her suitcase. Ugh. I cleaned the floors and put the bag o' wet clothing into the laundry room.

So, if YOU were an open can of Tahini and you knew your owner wanted you as an ingredient for her Hummus, WHERE would you hide? I made the Hummus without it, I have no idea where the Tahini is.

I was very scared when my 9 yr old soon to be step-daughter decided to empty my sons dresser out completely and put it all back together because "it was messy". She did alright...

I was also scared when I checked on her and she looked like the Sta-puft Marshmallow Man and realized she had on at least 10 layers of my sons clothing

I was amazed when she dragged the entire laundry basket upstairs on her own.

My King had to do his "normal" Friday 7 hour round trip drive today ~ but it was for work so he got paid for it. Made it a little easier I suppose.

So how was your day??
