Ok, this is one for the record books on screw-ups.
This weekend was the Mall Lock-in for area GS...about 500-700 girls locked in the mall for the night...music blaring...shopping...squeeling...you get the picture. I had one mom actually tell me that she doesn't know how I can stay up all night to which I repeated...about 500-700 girls locked in the mall for the night...music blaring...shopping...squeeling...
Anyway, Friday I get prepared. The house was clean, laundry done. I was looking forward to sleeping all weekend. So Friday night I drink about a pot of coffee...this thing starts at 10pm...and I take a shower to be all nice and ready. My dd also gets all cleaned up and is sooo excited. At 9pm I am out the door to go pick up a few of the girls for the event. I arrive at the first girls house and knock on the door. Her twin brother comes to the door and just stares at me. She pops in behind him and I say...all caffine like..."Ready to go have some fun?" she says "uh, I am in my jammys" I am really confused at this point. Her mom comes to the door and tells me that it is Saturday night not Friday night....I am dumbfounded...I have never gotten dates wrong. Anyhow I get the tickets out of my purse and sure enough it is Saturday night. I am soooo embarrased and confused as to how I could have managed messing up the date.
Anyhow I rush home to call dd's dad, who was suppose to pick her up Sat. for the night and explain that I got the wrong day. DD is so mad at me she is not talking to me as I pack her stuff for the night. Once she leaves I realize that I have dunk enough coffee to keep up a horse.
I tried to sleep in the bed, but when dh got to sleep before me it was useless...he was sucking in the windows so I went to dd's room and tried her bed, but it was too small LOL so I went to the couch and there I sat eyes bugged staring at the wall for hours. I think I did get a couple of hours.
Anyhow, Saturday rolled around and I am dead tired. I still took a shower and left to pick up the girls for the event...this time it was not a drill LOL. They had fun...I stayed by the coffee machine...Sunday when we got home I was too tired to sleep. If that isn't an oxymoron, but I was. I finally slept last night, but I am in a daze today...I think I need a nap.
This is probably one of the silliest things I have done. Have you ever done something like this?
ps. DH says I need a vacation
