Beer for Breakfast?

Anyone want to partake with me this morning? Although it's only 9:45am here in the Mountain time zone, my guess is that someone, somewhere is enjoying a nice frosty beverage as their breakfast of choice.


So what do we have today??


A crappy night's sleep due to a combination of insomnia, a snoring husband and the residual effects of a migraine?

Check.

Ants in the kitchen this morning?

Check.

Husband cranky because of the ants?

Check.

Husband slamming stuff around the kitchen while killing ants wakes the toddler an hour early?

Check.

Toddler is cranky because she's up early?

Check.

Toddler is also cranky because she's teething, AGAIN?

Check.

Contractors here bright and early to pour concrete?

Check.

The sounds of sledge hammers, a skid loader and dump trucks resonating through the house?

Check.

Two dogs running frantically from the front window to the sliding glass door because of the ruckus?

Check.

One screen door with a new rip in the screen due to one dog crashing into the screen since the rug was tossed outside this morning in an attempt to clean up ants?

Check.

Two dogs barking constantly at the contractors they can't see, but can clearly hear?

Check.

Dead batteries in a bark collar?

Check.

One package that needed to go to the post office yesterday to be mailed out but is still sitting on the kitchen counter?

Check.

No power steering or air conditioning in the vehicle parked on the street?

Check.

No other vehicle available for use?

Check.

Edits that need to be done on a manuscript about phosphorus fertilization?

Check.

Statistics that need to be run on an article about nematode infection?

Check.

A solid assumption that very few work-related tasks will get accomplished today?

Check.

A husband with an office job that gets to avoid all of this drama?

Check.

Cold beer in the fridge.

CHECK. CHECK.

Wow....that's alot of "checks". I'm so sorry your day is starting out crappy. Hopefully it gets better as the day goes on.

Beer...what? What was the problem? If you need a ride you can call and next time check the batteries. Nap time will be fun. How many teeth is that girl going to get?

Hey, if you get beer for breakfast than I want one too. :>) Sorry for the shitty start to your day. I hope it gets better!

Sucks, sucks, sucks, sucks, sucks!

Sorry things aren't going well for you. We've been dealing with ant issues this summer too. Not fun.

Yet one more time I wish we lived closer together. I'd pick up KT (maybe even the dogs) and run them ragged in our yard, send 'em home worn out and exhausted.

Hugs.
