I Hate That Fairy Anyway!

I wanted to blog this morning. I had nothing to say but that wasn't going to stop me. I was gonna get struck by the inspiration fairy, as I sat staring at my very dirty screen and come up with the wittiest,, most introspective, most hilarious post I had ever created. I was gonna sit back in wonder when I was done and feel so satisfied by my writing that I would have lit up a chocolate cigarette (I don't smoke so chocolate would have to do) and look contentedly at my creation.

But it was not to be.

When I arrived at work the cook called in sick. Two new babies started, one teacher was running an hour late and two others had emergencies and could not make it. I had to cook pasta for 56 kids make 24 baby bottles. Change 45 diapers. Comfort six crying children. Give an orientation to one new teacher deal with two perspective parents and nurse S. And poke seven little bellies.

Needless to say the inspiration fairy did not come to call. She was chased away by mountains of pasta and baby bottles.

Wimp!

Suzie, It's impossible to imagine all that work that you accomplished this morning. Your post couldn't have been more inspiring, more creative than the one you actually wrote. BUT...let's get together and hunt that fairy down! :)

I love the title of your post! With all that was going on she probably did come and you just didn't have time to notice. Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back.

Sweet mother of mercy! Those are the kind of days that make me want to cry. A lot.

What a day! I can't believe you actually had the time to sit down for 5 minutes and type that out! You poor thing! It's hard enough doing all that for 2-3 kids! ;) Let's hope tomorrow is much, much better! :)

Found your blog through Courtney.

Sounds like you have had one full day already, bless your heart. You need a drink, I'm sure it's five o'clock somewhere!

I don't know how you did that.Congratulations, to you and every other unsung hero that works in childcare,aged care, and the disability sector.Along with police, firies, and nurses you guys are the best, and should not have to fight for pay rises like you do.Inspiring. I am in awe, while you, I am sure, take in in your stride and just think of it as a monumentally bad day.

Ok that is just crazy crazy stuff. I will no longer consider myself swamped at work again -- at least diapers are not involved.

Holy moly. Did a fairy at least come bearing Advil or something??

Your sidebar says: People who comment are sexy. I wanna be sexy!

I wish the inspiration fairy would come to my house too. :)
