Anyway, long story short, after 3 HOURS on the phone and on hold, I thought I got it figured out! I was so frustrated though! By then my kids were awake, and 2 more came over! Trying to juggle two 3 year olds and two 1 year olds while messing with your computer, your cricut, and trying to hold your phone is not fun!
I decided to put it away until after the kids went to bed. I pulled it back out and it started doing the same thing! I.WAS.MAD! I seriously wanted to scream! And of course customer support was closed! :(
Shaun came home from church at 11:30 last night and I was still working on some stuff. I decided to try it again, and it WORKED! I'm not sure how or why, but it did!
And then all morning it's worked! So I think it might be fixed!

I need to organize/clean my computer desk! Most of it is couponing stuff! But I know the look of this desk makes Shaun cringe every time he walks in our room!

I went to Wal-Mart today for bananas (and to get out of the house!). I got distracted by the Halloween clearance, spent WAAAAAAAY to much, walked half way to my car, and realized I forgot the darn bananas.
At least I can blame it on being a mom!

First of all, we showed up late! I know I've expressed this before, but I hate being late. I had to run up to Portland to a book store in the morning!
Second, in the last 2 minutes of story time I realized Gage had a poopy diaper. I didn't have any extras with me, so I figured we'd be real quick checking out books after story time and then I'd just take him home and change him. We were downstairs and Gage was playing with the toys in the children's section while I was helping Maisey quickly pick out books. This boy was playing at the lego table by Gage and started yelling, "Oh man! This boy smells! That's disgusting! Ohhhh, get out of here! That is gross! He is stinky!" It was a little embarrassing! I've got a smelly kid!
Third, We were at the checkout desk and Gage was pushing the handicap accessible door button over and over again to open the door to the library. I figured I'd let him do it because it was keeping him busy while the lady scanned our books. I sent Maisey over to check on him and she came back to tell me he wasn't there. My heart sank. He could have been out in the street, pulling books off the shelf --that's what he's famous for at the library--, in the bathroom playing in the toilets, riding the elevator, who knows! I frantically looked all over for what seemed 10 minutes when really it was like 30 seconds and found him half way up the stairs! I scooped him up and ran back to the check out desk where Maisey was waiting for me.
Fourth, the line to check out books was growing longer and longer because it was taking us forever! I was trying to hurry and put all of our books in our library bag when I smacked Maisey right in the mouth with one. She started screaming and crying, Gage was trying to wiggle out of my arms so he was screaming! I just looked at the lady and said, "It's days like today where I wonder 'Why did I even leave my house?'" Then walked out with a bag full of books, a screaming girl, and a screaming and SMELLY boy!
Oh, and to top it all off. . . we had a late fee! $2! And that's two times in a row. You'd think after going to the library for 2 years, we'd have it down. These are the only 2 late fees we've ever had there. I don't know what's going on with me!
