It's a Witchfest Up In Here!

Well, this is fo sho' a side of me the blog world has yet to see. I was super bitchy yesterday. Ugh. Lawdy. To all my new readers I am not normally like this but I feel like I must keep it real for errrbody! I would hate for y'all to read my blog and think that crappy days don't exist in the House of Smith! Ha! I haven't been able to go to bible study the past 2 weeks and I can tell! I think it all started with the storm from Tuesday night.

Anyways, it was storming really bad here Tuesday and my DIRECTV craps out! Of all times! We just switched to them and I am not impressed! At all! So, I get out the laptop and watch a live stream, and our weatherman, Tim Simpson, is talking some noise about take cover and a bow echo (I need to google that because I am clueless) so I get my 1 and 4 year old up to seek shelter immediately like the man said even though the sirens weren't going off. They were so wired. Apparently sitting in a closet with mommy in the middle of the night is fun! Who knew?! Then there was the loud crash in the attic that I have yet to figure out. Water was leaking in one spot up there. What a mess! I am thankful that it wasn't that bad! See I'm not a total witch!

When it first started to thunder Carter said, "Don't be afraid, mommy. I will protect you." My sweet little man. He's a mama's boy!
They are beautiful even in the middle of the night. All Carter wanted to talk about was his wiener and Caleb kept farting. Ugh! Story of my life! Hahahahaha! Aubree was at her dad's but had she been her she would've been a wreck. Girlfriend does not do storms! She gets it from her mama!


I went for a morning run again. It was tougher today for some reason. Maybe all the wind blowing in my face? Not sure but I pushed through it. I have to confess that my blog friends are big motivators for me to run. I am sure I would've said screw it today had I not read so many stories that have touched my heart. Thank you runner blogger friends!

Women be shoppin' runnin'!

While cooking lunch for the boys today I noticed it had been a couple minutes since I'd seen Caleb. I looked for him and couldn't find him. Then I noticed the pantry door was cracked. I guess I didn't shut it completely and there sat my little monkey. Ha!
He was so calm and just sitting there like he was thinking, "hmmmm...sooner or later she will come find me but I'll just sit here until then." He is into everything!!!!!!!!!!!

I still spent my day cleaning up lots of poop and snot. What mommy post is complete without mention of snot, boogers, poop, puke, etc? Anyways, I'll be so very glad when his teeth come in. He is quite miserable. 

On a happy note, I went to see my friend Jamie at Southern Glow Airbrush Tanning to get sprayed. You can find her on Instagram at Southernglow! She is awesome! Thank you, Jamie for making a tired and grumpy mommy glow! I got a cool t-shirt from her that says "Glow Me"! Love it! FYI to any of my friends out there that get airbrush tans...if your child has massive diarrhea in the hours following your spray tan and you MUST bathe him and you notice that your tan is coming off because said child is splashing as though the tub  is a wavepool, all you have to do is apply lotion to the area and rub it in thoroughly! Works like a charm! Ha!

I mentioned Stephanie from The Not So Secret Lemne Life a couple days ago.  She is having a giveaway so go visit her page!

That's all I've got for y'all! Finishing off this snotty/poopy day with a nice bottle glass of red wine. Cheers to being out of this funk tomorrow!

    1. Thanks, girlfriend! I might be a little too real at times...it's a blessing and a curse! I hope y'all are feeling better today!

    2. Definitely a blessing cause it reminds the rest of us that we're not alone. PS...girls fart & burp & laugh about it too. We are feeling a little better, but all still rocking out the low-grade fevers & starting to have complaints of throats & ears hurting. So we will be off to the PCP again tomorrow upon the advice of: if fever more than 5 days on Tamiflu come back to the office.

  4. You boys are too cute. Great job getting your morning run in. Most mornings I hate it, but it's so much easier to get it over with first thing in the morning.

  6. Haha! I was cracking up at the "women be shoppin/runnin" caption. haha!! Girl, I know what you mean about the bad, grumpy day. I was in an awful mood yesterday and making a big deal out of nothing then something actually bad happened and made me put it all into perspective. I also saw a cute "Let Go and Let God" quote on fb and that really make me relax some. Hope the teefs come in soon so you have less snot and poop to deal with! lol

  8. Holy crap, I swear I though you had posted a picture of Brian and some other boy baby. It looks like Brian when he was litte and used to run around in his scooby doo underwear all the time. I can't believe Caleb was just chilling on the shelf lol. Congratulations on running again!!! Stuck in a closet with 2 boys- alway fun lol!

  10. I swear boys are obsessed with their wieners and farting. I thought I would get at least five or six years before I had to deal with that stuff. Love the other side of you:)

  11. Oh, I can relate to this in so many ways! First, I live in Nashville and got slammed by that storm on wed morning. My hubby and I set our alarm for 3:00 am to start watching the news. At 4 am we put the kids in the closet. I was really hoping they would stay asleep, buy no. They NEVER went back to sleep! = a recipe for a grumpy, long day!!! LOL
