Jail Break Needed

Today is our official first day of spring break. I may not make it. Here is a glimpse into the last twelve, yes only twelve, hours:
12:40 am: Technicolor jelly bean puke all over MY bed.
3:00 am: More puke.
7:30 am: Connor is eating saltines and feeling better.
9:30 am: Connor has Justin in a head lock. When I tell him to apologize, he says "I'm sorry Justin...that you smell like a monkey."
Noon: Connor again, "Can I color on Justin with a marker? It's peach, so it won't really show up." While I appreciate the considerate thought, the answer is still no.

Anyway, I sent my husband an email asking him if he could take a day off this week to set me free. Still awaiting news from the outside.If anyone wants to bake me a cake with a file in it, or share some good ideas so I don't lose my mind, let me know. I'll be the one in the orange jumpsuit.

Update, 12:23, same day: My husband's new boss said yes, as one mom to another, she understands my pain. Thankful for the new boss and my husband for asking in the first place. I'll still take a cake though if anyone has started baking...


  1. Too funny! My kids go back tomorrow so yeah!!! We only got Thursday, Friday, and today off, but seriously, that's long enough:)

    Enjoy your wonderful time and get some fresh air...actually, lots of in a park...with lots of room for them to run!

    Hey, by the way, I forgot to thank you for the wonderful card and extras that you mailed me. Thank you for being a blessing!

  2. Hang in there, my friend! You need STUFF to do. I always have done better with the little kids when I had stuff to do - even going to Walmart or running errands. They have to be in a car seat and the cart - and don't be afraid to use McDonalds as a bribe! : ) My kids always did better if I mapped out the day for them. First we're going to... then doing this...then doing that...then McDonalds! Glad I could help on Friday.

  3. You are too funny. I feel your pain. I'm in jail too. Pass the cake.
