What is really going on here?

Today is not a good day. I know Ice Cube says that today is a good day, but he isn't right on this day. To start out with, the daughter was almost inconsolable for most of the morning. I have no idea what got into her, but she complained her stomach was hurting and begged to stay home with me. I checked for a fever, no, did she have to get sick, no. She said she just wanted to spend some time with me. I couldn't get her to tell me the reason why she was crying huge tears at only 6:30 in the morning and trying desperately to stay home. Then on the way back home from getting them on the bus... I ran over a chicken. That's right, a chicken. This is how I know that I live in the far reaches of the the boondocks. I see these chickens occasionally running around in these peoples' yard when I drive by, but they usually avoid the road. But today, my friends, no. Apparently the whole flock, are they called flocks?, had to cross the damn road. I swerved a bit, but there was a bus coming so I had to make it a quick swerve and this chicken comes out of nowhere and wham! Except it was more like....BWAK!! I looked in the rearview mirror...why did I do that?!... only to see, yep you guess it...feathers flying everywhere!!! Ahhh, wonderful.... Getting home I find the cat on the counter drinking from the leftover milk in my son's cereal bowl. Even better than the chicken, I know that this drink of milk will lead to my cat now having diarrhea in some random spot in the house that I can smell, but not find. Today, I hate my life.

  2. See, she thought you should have got the chicken for dinner too...lol Is Kaia ok now? Kenzie did that in 1st grade... she missed almost a WHOLE week of school before I got wise to the fact that she just wanted to be mommy's girl- I even took her to the doctor and he said there was nothing wrong.
