The good, the bad, and the ennui continues

New babies (Yay, Naomi!!!) needing blankets. Socks on needles, wanting attention. Children slacking on their math studies. Same children building a box-fort and staging all-out territory wars over it... during open hours. It's never a good sign to be reaching for the chill-pills before you've eaten lunch, but that's the way it was today. As much as I dread the long road trip ahead, it's almost a relief to not have to worry (for that one week) that my kids' shinanigans will get me kicked out of my lease. The winter drags on, spirits are sinking, and another storm is predicted for Saturday. I'm stocking up on hot chocolate, sweeties, and freshly washed wool socks, along with all the Mister's favorite mixers. Is it nutty to be praying for a "snow day"? Off to knit while trying to get youngest tyrant to fall asleep. I hope you're all having a more relaxing evening than I am. C

Oh, I don't think it would take much, Cami. I hope you get a good night's rest, and feel better in the morning.

And the next time you're at the health food store, grab some "Natural Calm". It's a magnesium supplement you mix with hot water; it comes in yummy flavors (I like raspberry/lemon), and it really does wonders for taking the edge off that rising feeling of wanting to scream and strangle small humans.

Sweet dreams . . .

I totally hear you. It's a been there...done that kind of thing. My night went a little smoother than yours. It was knit night so I got a reprieve from the kids for a few hours and lucky for me it's right at bedtime so they were all tucked in and asleep by the time I got home. I've only recently starting going to knit night and I am LOVING it. I don't know why I waited so long!!! Good luck girlie..and may the force be with you on your trip.

grr, blogger ate my comment. And it never feels the same typing the second time.

remember when you are with me, you will have none of your own children in tow. I have officially gotten the afternoon of the 18th off. (and I'm totally cheating by putting that in the comments instead of properly emailing or blogging which I'm totally behind on)
