pants, shirts, knees, squirrels ...

another post about me ... had to share ... today was not so good. It all started this morning. I woke up happy. Lucy was still asleep, it was 7:00. I put some pants on and headed to the kitchen for coffee. Had a couple cups. My parents (Monday child-care) showed up and I finished getting dressed. Hung out with Lucy for awhile and headed to work.

In my car on the way to work I looked down and realized I wasn't wearing my khaki cargo capris at all ... nope ... I was wearing my "fancy" pants ... a black/grey herringbone type pattern with a very subtle pinkish accent stripe and some fancy buttons at the ankle area. Fine pants, very fine EXCEPT when you happen to be wearing a very casual tshirt that's brown with a blue design on it ... nice. Totally flashed me back to when I wore a fancy shirt inside out while interviewing daycares for Lucy and then again when I wore a polo shirt backwards to the mall of america. Not a fashion day not at all.

THEN I get home and have a nice dinner with my parents and mel and morgan. I was taking some garbage out when I noticed our demonic backyard squirrel staring at me from the fence. I had noticed that he started chewing threw the garbage bag in the short time it was outside. I had his dinner in my hand and he was staring at me. As i headed toward the garbage cans he moved in and tried to block my way by standing on the gate. He then 'chattered' at me very aggressively. I was distracted thinking about how to get past him when i stumbled off the deck and landed on the bricks on my knee. I nearly passed out (seriously) some how made it in side where my dad, lucy and morgan tended to me and my mom cowered in the kitchen shouting orders and saying 'oh it's bad, it's bad'. It was bad for about 20 minutes and now it's feeling under control. Lucy was so so sweet saying "I'm sooo sorry momma" and later looked at my dad and shrugged her shoulders saying "should I get her a diet coke?" oh Lucy, you do learn by observation, diet coke cures almost any ailment.

Squirrels are evil. I blame it for your entire day.

Go open another DC and call it a day!

Not only once but twice I've managed to wear a pair of pants backwards... I think I might have to label them, "front" and "back" :D

Hey anonymous (aka Lucy's Grandma),
Remember when you woke me out of a NyQuil nap to fix up The Grandpa when he got cut? Hahaha...we are all telling tales on you :)

Stacy - I hope the knee heels and that the squirrel relocates to a different house on the block.

What is it with these angry squirrels? I blogged about one that was terrorizing our family too a while back. And now you have a squirrel related injury. Down with squirrels!!!

I hope you are feeling better today. Kudos to Lucy for knowing just what to do for you.

WWK! Not good about the knee. As for the squirrel maybe you can try shaking a diet coke and giving the sucker a good spraying!

Oh my gosh, I am so sorry but I can't stop laughing!! I think the most hysterical part is Lucy asking your Dad if she can get you a DC. I am seriously going to pee my pants.

The healing powers of DC. Even an evil squirrel is no match.
Hope the week gets better.

Ouch! Sorry mama, that must have hurt. Did the Diet Coke help? :)

Stacy,

I needed that polo shirt laugh before bedtime. Thank you for your constant transparency and for sharing your awesome life with your STUNNING daughter.
