#103 - Bliss to craziness!

Well today was a trying day around here.  The kids were grumpy with a capital GRUMP.  I was going crazy inside, I am proud that I managed to keep myself from yelling/getting really angry at them.  We are going through a 'testing' phase with Boy1 and boy is he testing me.  Boy2, I am thinking he is still sick, at least I hope so as he was a whole new kind of miserable.  I had to have a rest in the afternoon when they all went down for their naps/rest time as I was shaking inside, if that's possible.

Then hubby came home,  I guess he was pissed that the 4 dishes in the sink weren't done.  I loaded the dishwasher and cleaned up, I just didn't get the misc stuff done.  Oh ya and I forgot to vacuum around the kitchen table.  I suppose that set him off.  He was ignorant to me all evening.  Then after I said I had a very bad day, he left me with the kids to go out and shovel.  What he was shoveling I will never know as we got a teeny bit of snow today.  Just what I needed.  Well I guess tomorrow will be a better day.  If not I may have to 'cool off' by rolling naked in the snow!  (As if! :) )

I did manage to get a few Christmas decorations up with the 'help' of the kids (that means they were just getting in my way, but that's ok!).  After they went to bed I put up our tree and I have been enjoying the peace and quiet ever since!

THINGS THAT BUG ME
- The fact that the stupid government is more concerned in themselves than the economic crisis that is going on in the world
- Having grumpy kids and not being able to un-grump them!
- Not enough time to read all the blogs on my blog list!

THINGS THAT I LIKE
- Peace and quiet after a long hard day!
- Kisses from Baby
- My MAC!  I had to call Apple support today, I must say it ROCKS.  From what I could tell they didn't seem to be following any script, they listened to ME and sent ME to the right place, they didn't assume I was stupid aaaandd they actually understood what I was saying!!! WOW!  Oh ya and they fixed my problem too.  (my wireless kept dropping when I was running on battery power!)  It was so weird to actually explain my problem and to be answered without being asked a bunch of stupid irrelavent questions first.  I think this is the first time in a long time I actually enjoyed talking to a help desk! Oh ya and no sitting on hold.  I booked a time on the internet and THEY called me!  Cool!  I am so glad I didn't buy another PC!  (I always wanted an Apple back when Apple IIe's were cool... you know green screens, c prompts... ok so I am a geek!  Lets just put it this way I am going waaaay back here!  Well I finally got my Apple/Mac and I am SOOO happy! )

KIDDO NOTES
Baby has a shoe thing already.  At least once a day she brings me one shoe to put on.  Just one??  Hmm I wonder what this will lead to in the future, should we plan to add on a shoe room for her?  Yikes

I am sure hoping that Boys get through their testing phase soon... I may pull all my hair out if it doesn't end quickly!  Although I suppose it's just a start of what's to come, isn't that what all teenagers do too? :)

Off to bed!

Sorry for the grumpy kids and hubby too. Roll around the snow naked? Why not? That sounds like fun and might help my perimenopause!
You are so not a GEEK, I love all your techie ways.

Glad to see someone else can go from bliss to craziness in a matter of days. Hope everyone stops being grumpy soon.
