August Break 2011 - Day 13 (Zero Tolerance)

Today was so weird. I had weird dreams the entire night before and then everything else was weird after that.

I was rude to the Jehovah's Witnesses that came to the door today while I was trying to feed the kids their lunch. No friendly chit chat from me! Instead they got an annoyed 'We're busy!' and then the door shut firmly in their smiling, ready-to-brainwash me faces. SO not in the mood.

I took the kids out to the lake today. I stopped on the way to snap some pictures of a herd of cattle that are always hanging out by the side of the road. I contemplated tossing the children over the barbed wire fence and driving away, but then reconsidered.  

The cows stopped grazing and stared at me grumpily while I took pictures.  

A couple of them even put on a bit of a show.

Catie explained to everybody that 'they just really liked each other'.

Once we arrived at the lake, I sat poolside like a zombie and simply observed. I'd worn my bathing suit but didn't feel much like swimming. The pool was packed with screaming toddlers and large, hairy men wearing speedos and frankly, I just didn't want to have anything to do with that today. 

Brad Pitt could have walked up to me and I would have swiftly kicked him in the testicles and then kneed him in the face. That should give you a pretty good idea of my mood today ;) I was like a firecracker. Actually, I'm probably just in dire need of some caffeine or a nap. :/

The kids were frog catching at grandma and grandpa's yesterday. I dropped my phone in the bucket shortly after taking this picture. Fortunately I grabbed it before it got too wet and it was fine. I managed to avoid squishing any frogs either ;) 

Never a dull moment around here.
