Don't get me wrong, I love my family......but......
Yes, there's a but. There's always a "but" when you say don't get me wrong.
All freaking week with the hubby home and all 4 kids.......ugh!!!!!
Have any of you gotten ANYTHING done with your families home???? I've been plotting my new book in my head, but I haven't written a word. I am a routine kind of girl. I have always had my kids on a schedule from the time they were born. Being a stay-at-home mom, that's the only way I stayed sane. I have to have peace at some points of the day. I can handle the rest, as long as I get "mommy time". Well, I haven't gotten any mommy time since before the holidays!!!!
The problem is, no one naps anymore. (I tried to get my husband to take a nap, but even he wouldn't;)) My husband worked on the basement all week, so he was busy, and of course, no one wanted to help him. My daughter has had a nasty cold all week, so she's cranky. My boys are bored, so they are irritating. Or I have every kid in the neighborhood at my house. Where does that leave me????
Back on the flipping crazy train.
I haven't been on a computer all week. My laptop is sitting right there where I can see it, calling my name, flapping its lid as it tries to beckon me, but no...... What have I been doing instead? I have been trying to get my house back in order(a useless attempt with everyone under foot) , build a 1000 peice lego set with one son(I won't even mention the direction book. If the finished product turns out more like Batman's cousin's cave instead of the Batcave, it's not my fault), figure out the i-pod with another son(electronic gadgets, shudder. I repeat, shudder) , attempt to download music onto a psp with yet another son (there's a reason I write books, people, I'm not a freaking techy), and watch yet another disney movie with cranky sick daughter.
Meanwhile, hubby's all smiles and honey this and honey that as he wears his toolbelt, cranks his music, and has a grand ole time working on finishing the basement. But I can't complain since....yes, you guessed it....it was MY idea!!!!
Sigh. One more party to go on New years eve, then everything comes down, and my schedule resumes.
Have a great new year everyone!!!!!
