What A Day!

It has been a long day and and no stitching for me today. My day started off with grocery shopping with the kids. I came out more frustrated and with only about half of what I needed! Then we went and picked up a couple of the girls' friends and went and visited my FIL. We had a nice visit and the kids had a blast in the hot tub. We got back to the house in time for me to get it cleaned before Mike got home from work. Of course while cleaning, the girls asked if their friends could spend the night. Mike was in a good mood when he got home so the answer was yes to the sleep over.

Their friends don't live too far from us so we drove back to their house so they could get their overnight stuff. Somehow by the time we were ready to head back to my house Krissy and 2 of the friends decided to stay at the friends' house tonight. So Allie, her friend, and I headed back to the house when I hit a bird with my van. I swear, that bird came out of no where and what was worse was both 12 year old girls saw it too. Luckily, it just hit the front bumper of the van and I was able to keep it on the road. However not even 20 seconds later three deer jumped out in front of the van. Let's just say my brakes work excellent and so did the driver's behind me! After my heart slowly went back to it's normal spot I politely told the girls that once my van was parked tonight it was not going anywhere else tonight.

The evening did get better as we dyed Easter Eggs. It was kind of bittersweet for me since this year my youngest informed me he doesn't believe in the Easter bunny. We had a blast coloring the eggs and Zoey even tried to help a few times. Luckily we were able to keep her from coloring her paws pink!

You certainly did have quite the day. I hate shopping with all the kids at once. Not fun at all!

Sorry to hear you had a bit of a rough day! Hopefully some stitching will take care of that!

Goodness! That's some strange car phenomena, eh? Good decision to stay in after that. I hope you were able to find some time for yourself to stitch. :)
