Mommy's No Good, Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Day

1:00 a.m. - Little Philip wakes up, a bit feverish, still fighting some awful bug. Mommy gives him Motrin and gets in bed with him since he will not go to bed without her (again, sleep issues continue to plague us).

3:00 a.m. - Mommy realizes she is still in Little Philip's bed, so she carefully gets up and goes to her bed.

7:30 a.m. - Little Philip wakes up, feeling great with a temperature of 99, pretty much normal for his age. Mommy and Daddy decide he needs to stay home just the same.

7:55 a.m.- Mommy goes to her car to go to work to discover that someone has opened the door (unlocked, bad Mommy) and worse, taken Mommy's wallet from her purse.

8:30 a.m. - Homewood police officer arrives to file police report. Little Philip is thrilled to see a real live police car and real live police officer. Mommy is not thrilled when the officer asks for Mommy's height and weight. Insult to injury to an enormous pregnant woman.

All bank accounts are frozen, and police report is filed. So far this morning, we are told we are one of about nine calls to report car thefts in our neighborhood.

9:30 a.m. Mommy drops off new checks for tuition at Little Philip's school since she had to cancel the entire series of checks from her wallet and tuition checks turned in last week have not cleared yet.

2:30 p.m. - Daddy emails Mommy to say that he smelled smoke during Little Philip's nap, only to discover that the TV seems to have caught fire. He turned it off and now it won't go back on at all. Also, Little Philip's fever seems to be back, this time, 101.

And to top it off, the robber seems to have taken most of Mommy's hershey kisses from the console of the car. Too bad he/she didn't take the Barney DVD we've seen about 500 times.

Oh Renie! I'm so sorry. I hope they catch the thief.

In our neighborhood we've had somebody running deliberately off the road and making track marks across about a dozen yards! We haven't been hit yet, but some of them are really bad.

Hope today is a better day for you!

that really stinks! I thought I lost my wallet once and for the 30 minutes until I found it, I was freaking out. On the bright side, you get to go wallet shopping!

I'm so sorry Renie! I hope y'all get it all worked out and they catch the thief! I'm mostly bummed about your hershey kisses...I know how nice it is to have little treats in the car!
