Yesterday, I found an awesome Geo Trax Train Set and Table, for sale on KSL. It was a great deal, so I worked out a way to go see it in Provo. When I got there, I realized that I left my purse on the kitchen counter. As the man came up and I looked at the set, I couldn't believe the excellent condition it was in!! Totally worth what he was asking for it (in fact, I think he should have asked more). Well, I didn't want to drive all the way back home, so I called Jason and had him find me a location of our bank. When I got there, it was still business hours, but there was no one there . . . weird! I really wanted the train and the guy said he had someone else coming to look at it! Aaaaa, what to do?! Finally, I decided to ask the guy if we could paypal him the money. He agreed and after an hour of driving around and trying to get this guy some money, Paypal came through and I got the train.

Well, last night when we unloaded the train table from the car and took it to our basement, we decided to hide it in our cold storage (the kids never go in there). As I was backing up, I accidentally bumped into the water line handle that turns on a hose spout in the storage room. As water started pouring out, I hurried and tried to turn it off, only to find that I turned it on, all the way. Water shot everywhere - all over my Christmas decorations and I was NOT happy. It's a good thing I don't cuss, although I did say the word "stupid" and I know my kids would have GASPED at that! We got everything cleaned up and in the end it was really no big deal. But these two moments just made me Grrrr.

(So, on another note . . . to add to my Grrrr'ness . . . Keira just majorly pooped in the bath tub! What!!!!! Of all six kids, this is the first! Grrrrrr again!!!!)

It was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Mom says some days are like that. Even in Australia.
Hope today is better!
