#142 - I could use a nap!

Well for some reason I didn't go to be until 1am last night, then I couldn't sleep because of the wind.  Now I am just plain exhausted.

I did manage to get a few things done for the practice teaching I have to do for my course on the weekend.  Now I just have to finish all the 'other' stuff that goes with it!  Lesson plan, notes, presentation etc!  (Not sure when I am going to do that, sometime between now and sunday I suppose!)

Obsessive me washed the living room/play room floor while the kids were eating lunch, then it was off to do the hallway.  Swiffer wet jet you have created a monster! 

It was off to JOB #1 this evening.  I was concerned about leaving crabby boys with the hubby but apparently they were good for him.  They even went to bed easily for him.  *insert jealous mom here!*    Work was OK tonight, not to busy but lots to ammuse myself with!  I was really tired so it's a good thing it was slow.

Guess what!  The house guest is coming back this weekend!  GREAT!  I have to pick him up after my class tomorrow night and take him back in on Sunday! Well at least we won't have to feed him supper friday too.

- winter is back  -27 (-16 F) with the windchill today!  Who invited January weather to come back anyway?
- people who cut you off in an 80km zone (turning left into the lane??) then go 60kms the rest of the way... what's your rush dude?
- the number of people still suffering through Infertility... that sucks!
- bloody house guest is coming back again!

- putting my feet up after a shift at work
- a good friend who 'gets it'
- my blog buddies
- the fact that I have visited almost all the blogs on the ICLW blog list for this month!


I just don't know what is up with my boys these days, fighting, crabbing, screaming, grumping, hitting, toy stealing.  I am just not used to that as they can actually be really good sometimes.  It seems as though they have rolled all the craziness into everyday these days.  Just trying to drive mom crazy.  I usually tell the boys to clean up their toys themselves as mom is not their slave.  So today I asked Boy1 to help clean up his toys he said No Slave do it!  Looks like I have a new roll around here!  :)  (Now I am thinking that Slave probably wasn't the best term to use, not that I meant any disrespect to any person, race, etc.  It was just a word.  Now Boy1 thinks it's a good one, I guess I will have to really start thinking what I am saying as I don't want him saying stuff like that to others!)  What's a mom to do!  :)

Baby is officially 3 days off her soother (or sookie as she calls it).  I just stopped giving it to her one day and that was that.  (I sort of felt bad, I did with the boys as well.  I wonder if it was something they really needed to sleep with, but she seems to be fine so I guess I can stop worrying!)  I imagine she has probably already forgotten about it?

Well the new toys, that are on the counter, seem to have really motivated Boy2 to try to poop.  But nothing yet.  I think he is getting really annoyed that he hasn't gotten one yet.  Hopefully soon.  Boy1 still doesn't care.  I am glad to hear that it takes a while for some boys, it's not just me.  Oh well it will happen when it happens.  Potty training is not for the weak though.  I really need to get a seat that fits on the toilet though as I almost get sick everytime I dump the thing.  Lets just say I have potty issues.  I would rather change a diaper for some reason?  Mornings are the worst YUCK!  I think that I still sufffer from morning sickness that I had when I was PG, it seems to like me so it just stayed.  Some mornings are awful, I don't get it!  

To bed I should go since it's going to be a busy day!

It's amazing how many floors you can get clean with such a simple gadget.

I have zero interest in cleaning our floors... you're amazing.
Your houseguest is coming back? Already?

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind words. It sounds like you have been on quite a journey to build your family. I am happy for your that after all you have been through that you have three children and seem to be in good place. I like the part of each of your posts where you talk about what bugs you and what makes you happy. That is a fun and interesting feature. Have a great weekend!
