morning o' fun

Get to bank with pockets full of rolls of change, cash and checks from Run Like a Mother. Get kids out of car. Look down and notice boogers on my pants. Charge ahead and pull on doors. Locked. Look at time. Not open for 15 minutes. Get kids back in car. They are both crying, she because she doesn't want to get back in the car already and he because he didn't get a bank treat. Go to UPS. Park right outside. Leave kids in car. Fear for their lives despite being 15 feet away with only a glass wall separating us. Fill out form wrong. Fill out another one. Then two more, the right way. Leave UPS and go back to bank. Get kids out and go in. Realize I don't have an account number. Go outside. Call Portland office in hopes of getting the number. Pray someone got an early start to their day on the West coast. Dial wrong number. Call right number. Success! Someone was in early. Get number. Go back in bank. Boy steals cookies. Boy steals candy. Girl pulls info sheets off counter. Sunglasses fall off and break. She grabs paper out of my hands. I take it away. She cries. Simon steals more treats because I'm distracted. Teller takes FOREVER. She cries more. Employees look at me with empathetic eyes. We get the hell out of there.

Go to park.

Take pictures.

Couple from afar tells me they thought I was photographing a doll.

Play for awhile.

Go home.

Feed kids.

Start laundry. Clean kitchen.

Look at said pictures :)
