I'm a Mombie...Rawr

Hi Strangers! How was everyone's 4th of July? We had a good one...at the beach and amongst the mosquitoes. There was crabbing (aka don't let your kids fall into the less than a food deep water).  There was sand play (aka Kate don't eat it). There was kite flying (aka you better hold onto the end so you don't cry when you lose it). There was food.  And there was less sleep than usual. My sister in law put it best when she said we don't go on vacation...we take trips.  Yes...very true.

I took Kate's sound machine, and everyone humored me and helped me to foil the windows and OH OH OH I was celebrating how great Kate slept the first night and day of naps.  And then night 2, was downhill, and then night 3 was more downhill, and then night 4 we were underground, and then night 5 we were into the depths of H E hockey sticks and all. Let's give her a break because the mosquitoes almost ate her alive and she is and was getting her first tooth.

So, lack of sleep aside, I used to be all put together riiiight?  Well there is only one bill I don't have on autopay here, because our tiny town doesn't offer that.  They would prefer I come inside and shake their hand and write them a physical check....silliness.  Anyways, around 11:00 AM I sent my neighbor a text asking if they had water and they did.  Hmmm.  Well my neighbor did see the water man at my cutoff thingy so maybe they were just working on something.   Hmmmm.  A tiny little itch in the back of my head.  Maybe I didn't pay the water bill?  That is silly. I am too put together for that. A little more itching in the back of the head.  I log onto their website (at least they have that) and the status says disconnected!!! Noooooo. And my total bill is $175ish?  So $50 of late fees and reconnect fees later, we have running water.  Whooo hooo. Mom-bie...rawr!

Other Mom-bie moments.  I cut up the wrong credit card when I got a new one in the mail.  I tried to give Costco a gift card instead of my membership card and it took the lady 3 times of explaining for it to sink in.  I tried to go to a social event on the wrong day.  I was so confused when nobody else was there.  I almost called the person but luckily, I checked the date first.  Boom. Not today.  I am emailing the wrong people at work (super embarrassing). There are some other mom-bie moments I can't remember because I am such a mombie.

Here is hoping I find a cure to the mombies.  It's nothing that a few months of good sleep and time around other adults won't cure.  Rawwwrrr!

P.S.  To hide some of the mombie symptoms (under eye circles, general state of confusion, etc), I am wearing the Younique 3D Fiber Lashes these days and I love them so much I am having an online party ( you know...like pampered chef, thirty-one, tupperware but for makeup).  If you are interested in trying out some mombie-scara, check out my link here.  They are $29 pre shipping, but are worth it so far to me.  They are not fake lashes.  It is a layer of fibers you paint on with mascara.  Not going to go into my speech here, but contact me if interested.

Oh my gosh you have no idea how many times I have paid the dang water bill late due to the fact that you can autopay etc!

Haha, at least you tried! Sounds like fun even if sleep wasn't happening. Poor baby Kate!

Your eyelashes look amazing!

Small town life. That's so funny! I'm glad I'm not the only one that forgets important stuff!
