Glad It's Over

This was an off-kilter day.  Some intense emotional stuff going on for Mr F and just regular life stress, appointments, the town blocking my driveway with snow boulders, and a very badly timed surprise science test prep for Kid tonight. There were tears... thankfully cut with some crazy amusing delirious hysteria.  It was a LONG day.  I'm glad my part is all over for the night.  Now to price out flights for Mr F and watch last night's Downton.

I will leave you with pics from the day:
 This is why we need that snowsuit! 
Baby's climbing one of the parking lot mountains at school this morning.

 Sunrise coming up over Baby's school.  I can never capture it with my phone but it was spectacular.
 While I was gone at drop off the plow came by and left some surprise ice boulders in its path, making my driveway completely inaccessible. That big lump right in the middle of the driveway was literally 4 feet wide and 2.5 feet tall and so heavy I could not move it and could not drive over it.  
I had to chip away at it with an ice breaker.  
As The Cougar would say "Don't worry about me".  
It's not like I had a car full of groceries and a dentist appointment I had to get to.  

 Love that crinkled nose.

 Kid's stress response
 in action
I'm always happy when her overwhelming stress crosses the line from sad/mad to wound up silliness.  She had me on the ground laughing at her weird impersonation of a Prepper thinking they could make hydroelectric power from their yard hose (hey, it was even on topic!... Big Boy was apparently less impressed).  She definitely inherited this awesome (Mr F might argue annoying) stress management trait from me.  Also the tendency to get overwhelmingly stressed... but who's counting?

My Monday pretty much sucked too.

And M. is home today so the hits just keep coming.

Argh.

Oh no! The ice blocks' timing couldn't be better right? I hope they’re already gone by now. Anyway, what happened to your dental appointment? Hope there's nothing wrong with your oral health. And you're right, you’re really lucky to have an adorable daughter. :)

It’s really annoying when your appointments are messed up with harsh weather conditions. It’s been a while now, and I hope you have already rescheduled your dental visit. Well, I think all your stress flew away after having fun with your daughter, am I right? How are you now? :)
