Wow and a Freebie

You know how you have those days where you would be better off just getting back into bed?  If only I knew then what I know now!

My day started off rough because I was running late.  Not just a little late.  SUPER late.  The kind of late that you get stuck behind every slow car and get stopped by every traffic light. 

So, I have spent most of the day trying to catch up, but never fully succeeding. 

This afternoon, I had just put my seat belt on and started the car, when I saw it.  I took a picture of it at home.  Are you ready for this?

Seriously?!  Do you SEE the foot long crack in the windshield?  I promise that it wasn't there this morning.

So I am driving along getting really annoyed by the stinkin' crack and the way that it is distorting everything and getting really, well, let's say irritated...that's a good description.

I get to my Mother-in-Law's house and tell her all about the windshield and she looks kind of sheepish and says that, on top of everything else, she thinks that my youngest has an ear infection!

One trip to Urgent Care and an hour later we have a diagnosis of a double ear infection. 


Okay, onto happier things!

Yesterday I promised a freebie, and a freebie you shall get!  The adorable clip art is courtesy of The First Grade Diaries.  It is an ABC order activity with response sheet.  I hope that you enjoy!
Hope your Thursday is a happy one!
