It was about time...

It had been quite a while since I'd spilled something.

That being said...
The streak is over.

It all started after my lunch break. Not sure why. Usually my clumsiness occurs in the wee hours of the morning.. while my brain is still in go-back-to-sleep-mode. But not today. Nope, today it definately had something to do with lunch. Maybe it was the odd combination of Raisin Bran and a turkey sandwich that heightened my typical clumsiness to an all new level. Maybe it had something to do with the 3 small children that I was supervising/child advocating/whatever you call my job. But, boy oh boy, did I have quite the spill. First, I stepped on a juice pouch... it squirted in an upward stream for about 10 seconds before I realized what I had done. (insert screaming child here) I had emptied his juice box. (a mortal sin, for those of you who aren't aware) Then, while running (well, walking...pregnant women don't run) to get some paper towels to wipe the grape juice off of the crying boys' face, I knocked over my water bottle. Not on the floor. Oh nooo.. it couldn't have just been on the floor, now could it??! No, it had to be where the outgoing mail gets stacked. That's right, folks. I soaked checks. I soaked receipts. I soaked thank-you notes. I soaked contracts. I soaked medical records. I soaked documents marked "CONFIDENTIAL" and documents marked "IMPORTANT". There was no discriminating. No envelope was safe from the wrath of H2O. Remember, the boy is still screaming in the next room... so I put the soggy envelopes on hold and came to the rescue with my slightly dampened paper towels only to find that the boy has now wet his pants.



  1. Now that is funny!!!! And to be honest...makes me feel good that others have the same things happen to them. I swear I am surrounded by people who rarely have these things happen to them!

  2. THIS is why I am not a parent and work out of my home! You are soooooo getting this patience and grace award!

  3. if it weren't so funny in my head laughing at how you wrote it, I'd be crying at the Hopefully it wasn't YOUR check that got soaked??
    thanks for stopping by today to show your support, I really needed to hear what you had to say :)

  4. awww! Sounds rough! Here's to survival!
