Skyler had a bad day too and other weekday adventures

I took both kids for real haircuts this weekend. (To fix Skyler's do-it-yourself job, and to fix Reed's return of the strung-out-surfer baby look).

When I picked her up from school:

Me: How was your day?
Skyler: Not good.
Me: Why?
Skyler: Nobody at school said "I love your haircut" OR "I like your haircut"

The nerve!!!

Everything is much better now, by the way:

The car damage isn't so bad after all {"a scratch, a scratch!" as Mercutio would say}
I got a pound of French Roast!
I got new {cute} travel coffee mugs!
I bought a new iron!
I ironed my pants for tomorrow already!
I finished my grading!
I made enough dinner for tomorrow night too!
The dryer still doesn't work but I don't care! I'll buy a freaking top-of-the-line dryer with the credit card tomorrow if I have to! I'm not fixing the dryer any more! I'm going to huck it out the window!!!! WOO HOO!

Oh, and I have this to look forward to: Reed makes us laugh the second he wakes up lately. He comes out of his bedroom yelling:
(skyler, wake up!)
