Everything today sucked

Seriously. EVERYTHING. Ugh. I'm glad it's over. Both of my daughters hated sleep. Miss Eloise summoned up super-hero powers to manage to stay awake from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm with only two twenty minute naps. I even drove them around for 45 minutes in the late afternoon to no avail. Naps were not happening. No way, no how.

Iris managed to kick me, throw a block at my face and basically act like an a-hole every chance she got. Being that I was not in the mood for her being on super-sassy mode, we butted heads alot today. Oh, and it apparently was a heat wave today, only I didn't know it until we piled in the car close to 4:00. Probably all of our problems would have been solved had I just taken them out to run around in the morning, but noooooo, I have to do things the hard way around here.

We had a counseling appointment tonight that I was not looking forward to. We had to bring both of the girls, neither of which had any decent sleep, to an appointment that ran in to their bedtimes. Amazingly, they both pulled it together and did fine. Of course, it makes me look like an asshole complaining about my hard day with the girls when they are both sitting there being perfect little angels.

Matt got a chance to pay back good karma tonight, which was actually the one good thing that happened. On Friday our bag with my wallet was left at the swimming pool. The next day we got it back, completely untouched. Well, tonight, Matt saw a wallet on the ground. He picked it up, looked at the ID, called 411 to get the guy's phone number, left a message, the guy called back and Matt met him at the grocery store to give his wallet back. Isn't that awesome? Eight million karma points. Or at least, earned back the deficit we created on Friday.

Eloise is going to be seeing the pediatrician tomorrow to figure out why she's had a cough for four weeks now. Fun!
