Oh my. It’s only been two days since my last post but it feels like it’s been forever. My days have seemed so long. When I have time to breathe, it’s bedtime (for me!).
Here’s the rundown on The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly:
Ummmm. Let’s go from worst to best, shall we?
*I have run out of patience. If you know where to buy more, please let me know. No price is too high. I really need it. Yes, I am an addict.
*I have twenty kindergartners that task me each and every day. Rules don’t apply to them, did you know that? See above. I enjoy them all but they are pushing me over the cliff. And rather rapidly. But only 59 more days to go.
*I miss my naps. I don’t think it would bode well for my future teaching in my county if I chose to take a nap and let the kids play. Do you?
*I am behind on blog reading. This really bugs me. I like to catch up each day with everyone but haven’t had time this week.
*My girls have been “a mood” this week where non-compliance was the only way we existed. Yeah for me. What one does, the other copies. Note to self: perhaps the three year age gap of the big kids is a good thing-----as opposed to the fourteen months with the little ones.
*Case in point: I was very nicely sitting there eating my pizza (lazy dinner time), when a pair of jammies hit me in the head. Got to love a four year old.
*I am so tired of Wal-Mart and Kroger. I dislike being there every other day. Don’t you? Even if I plan ahead, some nameless teen needs something that was not mentioned earlier.
*Soccer has started again which means a weird night time schedule. Ordinarily it’s not a problem since Dave is the coach and does the driving. However, since he is in China, it falls on me and Katie. But it’s baseball season so Katie is off watching her boyfriend pitch (with MLB scouts watching----whoo hoo!). So that leaves me…..and the girls…..to pick up Alex at 8:30 when we (well, they) should be in bed. Ugh.
*Tonight, while Skyping with Dave, I had to fuss at Anna Grace. Dave just started laughing so I fussed at him too. He said it made him feel like he was at home. Geesh. Maybe I should ditch the webcam!
*I got my new name charm necklace from Suzanne Myers. I love it!! Already had many compliments on it. I have tried dozens of pictures but nothing is turning out. I am sorry. My zoom isn’t zoomy enough. But if you go to her site, I have one of each of the borders (one for each kid!) and the rock crystal as the stones.
*I ordered my t-shirt from Gwen and received it yesterday. Mind you, her daughter was having surgery so the fact she mailed it just amazes me!! Click on her button on my sidebar, Support the Oatsvall Team.
*Daddy comes home from China on Saturday!
*Katie did bathtime tonight….for a fee of course. But sometimes, I’ll pay anything for her to do bathtime. It’s normally a daddy thing. When he’s gone, they have me (grumpy Gus) or they are dirty. Figured the school wouldn’t appreciate dirty kids to I’ve had to step in. But paying Katie works for me too! Plus then she has money for the baseball game tomorrow.
*Skype is cool…..so glad we got set up. It has been great this trip to actually see Dave when we chatted. It will come in handy this summer when he is back in China.
*Tomorrow is Friday!!
Yeah for the weekend!!! Hope you all are doing well.......
Back to watching Dora until bedtime. Only a few short minutes away.
