It is so fitting that today, the day that my good friend, Shell from Things I Can’t Say is reviewing our book The Mother of All Meltdowns, was another meltdown for the books. Before I get to today’s meltdown, let me tell you about Shell. She is one of the reasons I am still blogging. She helped me grow my blog and has helped me more than once when I’ve had difficulties. When people talk about connecting through blogging, they are talking about writers like Shell. I am so blessed that I met her and can count her among one of my real life blogging friends. She one of the sweetest writers I know and her blog is one of my favorites. She is the mom of three beautiful boys and she and I often commiserate on Saturday morning soccer or football games. Meeting her at BlogHer was one of the highlights. Sometimes you wonder if bloggers are really as sweet, funny and down to earth as they seem and she was all three and then some. I asked Shell if she would review The Mother of All Meltdowns and she not only said yes but she wrote a great post to go with it. Please show Shell some love by visiting her site to read the review. Click here. While you are there, check out some of her other posts. You will not be sorry.
As for my meltdown today, let me just say: Nico can’t find shoes, backpack and sweatshirt and that’s my fault. Somehow I was supposed to know that I had to sign something for school and go in his backpack and get it. He got frustrated and knocked down a fish tank full of rocks…gravel rocks.
Tommy has to go and sell coupon books at Stratford for a fundraiser for baseball (if you are there between 4 and 6, go to Carson’s and you’ll see him and grab a coupon book, too…good deals). He managed to get all of his baseball stuff but got on the bus and realized that he forgot the coupon books.
I argued with Leo for a bit about helping me out and he kindly brought them to Tommy’s school. Or at least I thought he did. I got a call from the elementary school that Tommy went to LAST year. Yep. Leo dropped off the books there. Tommy, by the way, is in middle school this year. I’m headed there and then need to drop them off.
Nico and Tommy decided to clean their room. I now have two overstuffed laundry baskets full of every piece of clothing they own. You know, because I have nothing to do all day long.
Belle is still complaining because she had a bad reaction to the flu shot (I think this might be the last time I have her get one).
So make my day and go over to Shell’s and leave her some comment love.
