Another week behind us, and what a week it has been! I can’t even. Let’s get to it.
Tuesday was just like any other weekday – worked, mommed, texted. When mail time came though, my lovely Colourpop order was here! You can see swatches of these beauties on Instagram.
I’m not going to tell you about Wednesday, because you got all the details in my Day In the Life post.
Thursday, I spend a good chunk of the day working in my journal to get ready for June. I caught up on my DVR and did normal parenting stuff.
On Friday, my world came to a halt. About 1 pm, I was in the kitchen with Nick as he made himself lunch. I suddenly saw something move on his head. I took a closer look and it was a fucking bug. I wasn’t sure what kind of bug. I picked it out and kept looking. LICE. MOTHERFUCKING LICE. This was the first time in my entire parenting career to deal with it and let me tell you, I hope you never have to. Every single person (myself included) in the house with hair had lice. I immediately texted Stuart an SOS and he brought home what we needed to start the Cetaphil method. I chose this because I like to minimize my kids’ exposure to toxins and my BFF Nicole had sworn this worked better in her experience. I went through it with all four kids, then myself. It took 5.5 hours to handle everyone. I was exhausted and my back was aching. Claudia fell asleep as I dried her hair.
Saturday, we got up and started washing and checking everyone’s hair. Turns out, I must have combed out too much excess Cetaphil, because all the kids still had live bugs. I decided to redo the boys, but not Claudia because hers takes over an hour and she only had one bug and few nits. I flat ironed her hair to fry anything I missed and we headed out to take the kids to Dustin. Back in town, we went to Total Wine and stocked up. At home, I found a dead bug in my hair and decided to have Stuart comb me thoroughly. Everything in my hair was dead, thankfully. With that behind us, we sat down to a dinner of chips and assorted dips and watched Dateline. With the kids gone, we were able to actually be all over the house and not confined to our bedroom.
Sunday was the first full day without the kids and we absolutely took advantage of it. We spent the day on the couch. I never bothered with underwear. I ate my brunch at the coffee table while journaling and we watched a lot of TV. In the evening, Stuart went to work for a bit while I straightened up and did some doodling . Then he came home and grilled. Such a great Sunday.
Another week behind us and now a week of deep cleaning, errands, and some Me Time. Ashley is coming here this weekend and I can’t wait to share the shenanigans with you all. Make sure you are following our IG account (@rageagainstthemomachine) and snapchat (RAthemomachine)!
