When I went to pick him up, he had been in underpants all day, with no accidents. This is largely because they walk the kids to the bathroom every hour on the hour. I panicked a bit when I realized he was not in a diaper and I had not brought anything to protect the car seat. They told me to take him to the bathroom before leaving...but of course he started screaming when I tried to walk him over there. So we got in the car and I white knuckled it home...thank God he did not wet the seat. But immediately upon entering the house he peed his pants. I cleaned up that mess, put on a new pair of underpants and shorts...and minutes later he took a huge crap. Then I had the fun of cleaning that up. You know what? I'm just going to let the school deal with this mess for now. If he keeps having good days at school we'll revisit. But until then I've scraped all the shit out of pants with my fingernails that I care to for the moment.
I finally got back to focusing on work this week and it is a handful. I have about fifty plates spinning at the moment and have discovered a major scheduling glitch that there does not appear to be an answer for. The problem is my contests are getting huge and they are no longer fitting in the allotted time slots. Limiting participation means pissing people off; taking time away from the live music also means pissing people off. I don't have the slightest idea how to solve this. I sure wish my bank account reflected all this sudden enthusiasm.
Have not heard from Craig's List Guy since yesterday morning. But he also has not renewed his ads in two days when he normally does it every day which says to me he's been busy. Either that or he's just not that into me. Join the club!
Facing yet another 40-something birthday with zero plans, I decided to use my hotel points to book myself two nights at a fabulous luxury resort in Palm Springs. I'm going to use my sitter that will be taking care of the kids during my event. I haven't decided who to take with me yet. A man would be ideal but in the absence of that option I do have a nice coterie of single girlfriends who I think would be game. Oh man, do I need something fun to look forward to!
