Brain woke me up at 4 a.m. (This hour is not even legal in my house), so since I was up, might as well do my new Hello Mornings Bible Study: Abounding Hope. I should have spent more time in my Bible Study! I have very much been looking forward to my second Bible Study with HM and I love the accountability and support offered! It's always been an area I struggle with.
There was only one volume today during play time - that would be scream level. Baby screamed and cried most of the day (except when held) and that alone made me want to jump ship. She had finally dozed off in her car seat when Fed Ex knocked and our German charged the door barking (of course) her loudest, waking the said sleeping baby, whom was screaming again. I finally said a bad word
|Miss AB cleaning the toilet.|
It had been rainy all day, freaking the dog out, so she spent her day in the laundry room with her
Oh, did I mention that Miss C had black beans for dinner last night because she DID NOT digest them one iota!!! ewwwww!!! Gross!!! Raisins and black beans are a no no for little kids!
The kids were playing after naptime when the tornado sirens went off... and we sprinted into action by gathering kids, diaper bags, my purse, phone, shoes, the all important paci and special blanket and cramming into our safe room - the laundry room. Course Miss C was not happy about this one bit, especially having to have the dog's paw touching her or maybe it was Lady panting and drooling on her.Meanwhile AB and Youngest are playing I Spy in the laundry room and she didn't want to leave it when the warnings are over...
Oh, Did I mention that Miss C somehow got the cap off her sippy cut and was happily slinging it ALL over the kitchen? um, yes she did and I do believe she quite enjoyed it! I did not enjoy wiping it all up. Oh, that reminds me, I need to mop in the morning.
In the end, I must say, I should have put myself in timeout somehow, but thankfully Youngest was such a tremendous help that I cancelled school for him and didn't feel bad about doing it. We'll call it a Sanity Day. When all the girls left and it was so totally quiet, Youngest and I sat down on the couches and started watching season 1 of Psych. Well, I attempted to watch most of it, but it was the much needed nap that won out. Felt so much better after even 30 minutes of rest. Fixed breakfast for dinner :fluffy pancakes, Blue and Gold Sausage, and Buttery Skillet potatoes. After dinner it was nice for the whole family to settle down to watch the season premier of Top Gear. It felt so good to laugh, but oh the evenings are not long enough!
The kids screaming, phone ringing
Dog barking at the mailman bringing
That stack of bills overdue
Good morning baby, how are you?
