I guess jumping the battery yesterday didn't completely revive it. It was like a zombie for a day, functioning but not really. Today, as I go to leave the house (of course--when else except when you have your children buckled into car seats and you put the key in ignition are you going to notice these things?), the car won't start. I realized at that moment that we had a bigger problem: the battery had run out of its own juice. I needed a new one, or I'd be jumping it after every stop.
Sigh. Jump car. Buy a new battery.
At least the tatooed man at the car shop was complimentary, telling me I looked like a cute little hippy fairy. He invited me to a hippy festival. Thanks, dude! (I don't look like a hippy, btw, nor even know how to act like one. But I'm wearing a long, flowing skirt today. I guess that counts.)
Next month I'm not spending any money on this car. I promise. My fingers aren't crossed.
So! Next item of business. Because I know you're all dying to find out how I plan on cleaning my kitchen, let me detail it out for you. First, I'm unloading and loading the dishwasher. Second, I'm getting everything off the counters. Third, empty the cupboards (yes, I know I changed sentence structures. No parallel structures here). Fourth, clean cupboards. Fifth, reload cupboards. Sixth, clean counters/stove. Seventh, restock counters. Eighth, sweep floor. Ninth, mop floor. Tenth, clean laundry room. Ignore the fridge.
There. It doesn't sound too hard now that I have a plan.
And an update on little Asher! He hasn't thrown up since last night!!! Let's see if we can make it all day...
