We aren't usually like this, really, I promise.
Daughter was up screaming all night. Totally uncharacteristic and just miserable for everyone involved, especially her. This morning it turns out she was getting bit by little tiny ants. Probably 2 dozen small little bites on her head and neck. No wonder she had a terrible night. Just couldn't see them in the dark and ants biting people in apartments is a new thing for us.
Went to tell the manager lady they needed to spray this dump to kill all the ants. Her "shocked and semi apologetic" act is wearing thin on me. [It was semi amusing when she faked surprise after our initial inspection I mentioned the fridge smells like death but this is ridiculous. My kid got hurt so I am pissed. Also she had a big thing of bug spray in the closet of her office. Additionally despite a lot of lysol the fridge still smells like death. Thank goodness this is not our permanent residence]
Walker had those packaged chocolate doughnuts which were purchased at some point during our trip and dry cereal washed down with juice for breakfast.
We ran around all morning looking at houses. After lunch Walker tossed his milk shake on the floor of the car. Thankfully it's contents spilling was mitigated by the mountain of junk on the floorboards of the back seat. Wifey said "I am not happy with you" to which he replied "That's OK with me."
This afternoon he tossed a toy truck out the open window of our vehicle while driving. Walker then proudly told the folks in front of us at the store that "He tossed the monster truck out the window." I mentioned that it was one of parenting's finer moments which got quite a laugh out of the 50 year old couple in front of us in line and the 40 year old cashier.
At several points the door was left open for the dog to roam outside on his own recognizance. Thankfully he is well behaved so Dog only explored the front yard and looked around to check out the new area. One time he actually walked back inside without any direction.
We had ice cream sundaes for dinner. It wasn't planned but just sort of happened.
Tonight they are wearing yesterday's Pajamas again because almost everything we own is currently dirty. Sort of didn't keep the best track of our clean clothes inventory so we noticed when everything was dirty. OOPS!!! That the kids go through 2-3 outfits a day plus Pajamas's doesn't help any. To make matters even worse could not give them baths tonight because somehow we do not have any towels. They were packed at the last place (for this transitional period) but either are still in the storage place or were lost during the move.
Short of spending the day at our family single wide trailer/ meth lab then leaving them with creepy Uncle Larry so we can smoke meth and do home invasions today couldn't have been much worse. On the plus side that means there is ample room for improvement tomorrow.
I sprayed some ant stuff this morning so hopefully that helps. Tonight Daughter will be sleeping in an elevated position to hopefully deter the ants, plus we'll know to check that if she gets way overly fussy. Also got our vehicle cleaned out from the trip so that is good. We went grocery shopping today so tomorrow we can eat some actual food that doesn't come in a greasy paper bag. We'll do laundry tomorrow and get some towels so at least our little rug rats will be clean.
So that was my day.
Edited to include: Wifey mentioned that I forgot to include that Walker wore a black plastic batman rain coat for about half of the day. In 90 degree 100% humidity Louisiana August weather. He really wanted to for some reason. We checked repeatedly to confirm he was not too hot but the kid just wanted to wear the rain coat.
Edited again to include: I forgot that he also ate an entire box of tick tack's all at once. Emptied the container strait into his mouth.
