Are you SURE it isn't Monday?

Quite simply put, today sucked big ones. It started with little sleep last night from my son's hacky allergy cough. NEXT, came him refusing to go to school and continuing to hack up a lung, which resulted in a doctor's office visit. BUT, my doctor wasn't available, so we went to a new one. THAT, resulted in waiting almost an hour to see the doctor, WHICH in turn meant a screaming toddler who was past her naptime. THEN, I finally got him to school and came home, sans workout as planned, to a messy house, a wired toddler WHO then wouldn't nap, and an exhausted self.

Things did improve, but because my brain is mush, here is a meme I lifted from Kym over at Extraordinary Mundane. Thanks, Kym!
