Have you ever just had one of those days? I am so frustrated right now. With the kids back in school, you would think life would get easier, but it just seems to get more complicated. Since when did school become so complicated? You can't have a backpack because it's uncool, but you have so much crap to bring to and from school every day there is no other feasible way to do it. The arguing with our oldest has become impossible. I try to solve the problem by getting a cute tote style bag, just shy of being a messenger bag trying to make both camps happy and still there is an argument. Kat has 7 binders to bring to school because the teacher's don't like spiral notebooks because they make messes in class, but really a dedicated binder for each class? What ever happened to tab dividers in a binder? I swear my daughter has misunderstood the teachers, I don't think each teacher can really ask for a student to carry a dedicated binder for each class on top of a book for each class. It seems so far fetched - she won't even be able to fit half of it all in her locker. But she insists that it is a dedicated binder for each class, which only spawns the argument for a backpack even more. Someone save me! I swear I am going to have to go to the school and get it straight from the teacher's mouths myself. I am so stressed and frustrated I don't even know what else to say. She refuses to listen to reason, like we just have no clue. Let's get friggin real, if this is what the teacher's want, then they are all clueless idiots who have not thought this through at all. Can you tell I am just a little on edge? I left work early yesterday to try and get some stuff done that I needed to get done, but instead my time was spent on all this back to school crap well into the night. So now I need to schedule to take more time off just to get my stuff taken care of. But I am super busy at work and can't really take more time off. I am ready to throw in the towel and just give up! I am one person, I can not do it all. I can't work full time, start my own business and be a full time mom all at once. Even with all Juan's help, there is still always more that goes undone. Add this kind of crap in the mix and I am ready to go over the edge. Did I mention all this stress is bringing on a migraine? Oy! My head is just pounding. Did someone not get the memo? I don't have time for a migraine right now!!! Ugh!
So since I'm already frustrated, how about showing a nail polish fail. This is Savvy Prince Ala Charm. This looks so pretty in the bottle. I hate when I buy a polish expecting the color in the bottle and it comes out sheer. Most of the time I can tell if a bottle will be sheer, but not this time apparently. Here it is with one coat.
Three coats later and it was a bit more opaque, but still way to sheer in my opinion. Just a big fail!
At least I like to layer polishes, maybe I can save this by layering it over something instead. You win some, you lose some. Here's to hoping that life with a teenager gets better....
