I LOVE to be busy. I would much rather be “on the go” than have time to watch tv or work on my blog. Today was one of those days packed with appointments working with children: three home visits, a meeting with a school department, two evaluations to complete, not to mention traveling all around the state to do so!
When I finally finished work, around 6:30 pm, I still had a church council meeting to attend. Needing a “pick me up”, I drove to the nearest Dunkin Donuts to get a nice, caffeinated, cup of tea. Putting my window down so I could hear the server, my head rested in my hand as I took several long deep breaths, trying to reinvigorate myself. The car behind me beeped, bringing me back to the real world. Gee!! It WAS taking quite a while for the server to take my order.

I looked out of my window and noticed I had pulled up in front of the trash can to place my order…no wonder I was met by silence!

    Ha ha ha! You must have been tired! I’m glad I’m not the only one that has done things like that. Too funny!

  4. LOL! Well, it all did work out eventually! What a day!

  5. You did have a long day… Made me giggle. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Oh dear…poor you! Now that’s being tired from a long day

  8. That’s funny! Isn’t it great when we do such stupid things and can laugh at ourselves!!??

  9. Thanks for giving me a laugh! I totally have had those moments too!!!

  10. You really did need that pick me up. Funny story! (I’ve gone zipping past the place where you are supposed to place your order, and then had to back way up. Fortunately there was no one behind me!)

  11. Oh I feel so guilty that I giggled at that you poor thing it sounded hectic I really hope you got to rest abs recharge x

  12. The outstanding wife said:

    Brilliant! I stopped at a green traffic light once when I was enormously pregnant and it took me a good few seconds to realise my mistake!

  13. Oh excellent! Much better than me asking a mannequin for directions!

  14. haha!! now that’s a long busy day. i’m surprised the smell didn’t wake you. haha.

  15. Recently, I drove up to Target, parked the car, thought I was going to take one of those deep breaths, and 45 minutes I woke up still sitting up, with the car still running. Fortunately, the kids were at home with my husband, which is probably why I fell asleep. Too quiet…lol!

  16. hahahaha too funny! The days of being busy are exhausting and entertaining all at the same time.

  17. Heartfelt thanks for starting my morning off with a giggle. You have the most wonderful way with words. Your spirit and goodness always come through.
    Every single time I visit your site, I smile.
    I will be back.
    You inspire and entertain. Thank you.

  18. lol, although I have done that exactly I can relate ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. That made me smile. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Hahaha! Oh goodness. Well, at least you figured it out. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. I know I shouldn’t laugh…I’ve had days like that too…balancing homework and kids and work is a lot of fun…not! I was working on some math homework one evening and my son wanted me to change the channel so he could play Wii and I grabbed my calculator …yep…we need to take a breath and have a laugh…even if it’s at ourselves ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. ๐Ÿ™‚ ha ha ha I could tell ya stories! ๐Ÿ™‚ Good to know I’m not the only one.

  23. Such is the life of a writer. We notice what others would have never given a thought.

  24. I feel ya! Too many times lately have I put the cereal in the fridge and caught myself on the way to the pantry with the milk! Thanks for sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Successful Exceptional Education (SEE) said:

    Lol!! I’ve has those days too! Cheers to an easier day tomorrow

  26. Oh no!!! That happens to me a lot- the perils of being busy…

  27. Isn’t it amazing how exhausting life can be? I applaud you for your strength not to immediately back up into the person honking behind you and to be able to laugh at yourself. After a day that seemed to last a whole week I once got into to someone else’s van (they had left it unlocked, parked right beside mine), buckled the seat belt and then noticed my feet didn’t touch the peddles. A true Mommy Moment.

    • That is so funny! I have never done that, but then again I drive a huge, 12 passenger van with a wheelchair lift…there is no mistaking THAT for someone else’s car!

  28. This sounds like me! Thanks for sharing your chuckle, and I hope you got some rest!

    I have many days like this, but I to love to be busy ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I love to be busy, too. (That’s why I have 5 kids…) The only downside is that life goes by sooooooo fast!

      • ocdcpnmom3 said:

        I agree, it sure does, I have made my schedule a little less busy these days to be there more for my oldest son with aspergers, I have 3 kids, I bet your days are crazy, but you wouldn’t trade them ๐Ÿ™‚

      • You’re right. I think I’d be bored it I didn’t have so much to do!! (At least I sleep well at night!)

  30. I did more than giggle…I, too, have had those days. I work a 40 hr. week, then come home to another 30 hr. week with an online business. I’m on the computer a lot! I can’t tell you how many times I have tried to “answer the mouse” when the phone rings!

  31. HI,
    I found you from your comment on Under the Cover of Prayer. I can’t see a contact me or email. I have a book that I have been told is excellent for children with disabilities.. I consider them “different abilities”. It is geared to ages under 7. It is a picture book and I did the illustrations in watercolour. Do you do reviews? I would love to send you a PDF if you are interested. My email is authorjaniscox (at) gmail (dot) com.
    PS just love this post – almost like cereal in the fridge.

  32. Oh, how totally hysterical! Only you could make a funny blog post about something else that most people would never admit to! Way to go! And do try to get some rest!

    • I was born not to feel embarrassment…I don’t know why, but admitting doing stupid things doesn’t bother me! (I think I secretly enjoy it because it gives me something to blog about…as soon as it happened, I thought “Oh! That was soooooo funny! I’ll have to write about it in my blog!”

  33. Hey…waves through all your comments, wow your busy. I have been wanting to have a suitable award to pass on to you and here it is, wooh oo I am excited can you tell? LOL…it is the dragon award, here is the link if you want to look and its just to say I think your ace!


  34. Great story ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. Have a restful weekend, you’ve been busy!

  36. Now that was a long day. Good job the other driver beeped; the day could have been even longer ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. ha ha ha ha ha! Very funny indeed, you are awesome you are, xx Carol anne

  38. Haha. Good one. You are my favorite blogger and I read every post. I, too, like to be on the go. But I will take laying in the bath tub blogging over on-the-go just about any day. So funny you are such an amazing blogger, but would rather be on the go. My husband says the more I go, the more material I have to blog!

  39. […] It seems as if I was not the only one who had a difficult day mommy training wheelsย has a similar story to share and also Raising 5 Kids with disabilities and remaining sane blog. […]

  40. This is just the best story! Thanks for the chuckle with my morning cuppa!

  41. Had that same day yesterday!

  42. LOL – Oh dear! Here’s hoping the tea helped energize you for the rest of the evening!

  43. That’s funny. I’m glad you got your tea. ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. I’m glad I found your blog and began to “follow” after I read this post. I have had my share of speaking to trash cans, as well. It’s good to see we are not alone in this world, no matter the bizarre circumstances of our situation! I look forward to reading more…
