Today was an exceptionally weird day. I took a floating holiday from work so that I could go take a blood test to check on the status of Baby Anyah. I had an appointment at 8 a.m. at the local blood lab so I was totally cool when Layla woke up at 7 a.m. and then my mom ended up running late so I called and canceled my appointment and asked if I could come in as a walk-in. Sure.
So I turn up just before 9 a.m. to get my blood test and there is literally half an old folks home of elderly people in line in front of me. It smells bad in the lab when it's stuffed with people and the heater is running. I haven't eaten since yesterday because it's a fasting test. I get to the front and they let me know it's going to be about a 2 hour and 15 minute wait. Only to try and make it sound nice she says... it will probably be just before 11 a.m. if you want to go somewhere and come back. There is no way I can go to 11 a.m. and then an hour past that before eating. So I make an appointment for my day off next week and then call my OBGYN from the parking lot to explain my test results won't be there before my appointment next week if they want to reschedule me.
So I come home and we decide to go check out the new Hucklebee's in town. It was an ok breakfast but the place was adorable. Layla though went totally bipolar when we got there and alternated every 5 minutes between happy cute toddler and alligator tear crying, with a brief break to eat sausage. Longest 45 minutes of my life.
When we leave we go to the park where we ran into Layla's little friend North with his Grandma. We played at the park for awhile where I played with my daughter and my mom battled her new iPhone addiction by taking a ton of videos and occassionally stopping to play. Then we came home. Layla likes to play with Nannie in the car so they did that for awhile.
When Layla came in she wanted a snack and being as breakfast was late she just got the snack before naptime. I laid down with her just long enough for her to go to sleep then I got up and blogged pictures to the Bug & Bean blog. She woke up from her nap very hot (too many blankets) and aggitated. That can be cured with apple juice and sesamestreet.org video feed. Just saying.
After that Nannie came over to watch Layla and she brought her dinner. Jon and I snuck out to see Book of Eli. Easily the best movie I have ever seen. I love me an end of the world movie with suggestive adult themes and biblical faith. Yes. Yes I do.
Then it was fend for yourself in the pantry/freezer for a later dinner for Jon and I. While Layla watches Sesame Street on DVD I'll go take a shower and then I'll be off to bed so that tomorrow I can get up and go to work.
I work this Saturday which is always a pisser. But with the floating holiday at least I am not working 6 days straight. Silver lining officially noted. It's officially a case of normal parenthood and live in the middle class over here right now.
