Let's not do April 15th again, mkay?

I am assuming there is someone up there that I have really pissed off. And Matilda Jane also continues to be mad at me?

If I can take you back quickly - MJ launch #1 - lice...MJ launch #2 - lice...

So when Eloise woke up sick with a high fever at 3am this morning - for MJ launch #3 - I have to say I did not expect much less.

I love having people coming in and out of my house, attempting to enter orders, feebly trying to properly mother a very sick child, and nursing a baby all at the same time..not to mention my 5 year old was following me around all day asking for a snack and wanting to read.

We ate cheerios for dinner.

..and the new cookie tank sold-out in minutes..and how many did I snag for my customers - ZERO. Flipping ZERO. So, I got to spend my afternoon apologizing to dozens of women who were none too happy.

On top of this, I got to write a check for a gazillion dollars to the IRS today. Really a gazillion.

So 7pm finally came, and I was able to pour my wine, sit down to finish my orders, throw in a load of laundry, watch the SNL special.

..and moments ago, my dryer breaks. dead. burned.made a moaning sound.started smelling really bad. and died right in front of me. Now, I have 3 load of wet clothing hung all over my house. ALL.OVER.MY.HOUSE.

I have no money for a new dryer as I gave the IRS a gazillion dollars today and didn't earn any commission since I could not snag a cookie tank to save my life.

I am so damned lately.

Do you think someone is trying to tell me something.

Happy Tax Day everyone.

I'm so sorry Tracy, that is a REALLY rotten day! Tomorrow is a new one & I hope that you have a nice, quiet, restful weekend...and that no one even says the word "cookie tank" in your presence! Praying that you have a good night, maybe Astrid will 4 hours tonight! Sorry about the dryer, appliance problems always happen at the MOST inconvenient times.

I hate to say it, but someone is trying to tell you that MJ is bad for you.

Jen said...

Okay, just remember things *could* be worse..........I thought you were going to say "MJ release #3........lice again!" lol

Kristi Pohl said...

I agree with Tifani, I think someone is trying to tell you something...let Mike know if you need to come over and use our dryer!(just keep an eye out for mice....)

Thanks for the nice text this morning, hope your weekend is far better than yesterday was-I'm not coming back until Monday night-talk to you next week!

Melanie said...

what a day. praying for you, tracy!

Ann said...

ACK! What an awful day! Do you think your MJ curse is related to Nina's birthday curse? Maybe we need to do some sort of exorcism!

That sucks about the cookie tank! I hope one of these days MJ figures out a better inventory plan!

AFC said...

oh NO!! I am so sorry you had a bad day.. if you lived here, you'd have a soggy wet basement and another weekend of flooding, but at least you'd get a one month tax extension! Hope today is better..HUGS!

I know your pain, oh I know it. March 22 was craptastic like your April was a Monday and a black cloud rolled in over our house that entire week. It's taken about a month for me to get over that week. Why is it when it rains it pours?

Amanda M. said...

oh honey, that is an awful day. here's hoping today is mucho better. <3

Sahnya said...

maybe it is a sign that you need should create your own cookie tank .... I know you could pull it off well (and have just enough stock on hand).

Sorry it was such a rotten day!

Rachelle said...

That sounds like a terribly stressful day! Ugh~ no dryer. I hope it gets fixed quick. I hope your day goes MUCH better today. That sure is a darling pic. of Esther in the little dress.

no solutions, only sympathy.
