Homework and Stripping

Sunday evening is here, and I feel like I can relax a little. Just a little though. The kitchen is a major mess, so technically I should be cleaning it, but I think I'm not going to worry about that for now. Mike will be spending yet another evening watching hockey, so I guess I'm stuck on my own again. I got my homework done at suppertime though, so now I don't have that hanging over my head. I do have a slide show to complete though, for my Grandma's 95th birthday party, which is next Saturday. That is next on my list of things to do. There is just not enough time in each day to get everything done that I need to do.

I spent most of my day stripping. Yep, stripping. Diapers, that is. I couldn't resist throwing that in there. It is a process of deep cleaning that needs to be done now and again, if they start to hold odors or repel liquid. Mine were not severe, but were smelling pretty strong as soon as they got wet so I decided it was time to do some stripping. I did a bunch of research online to figure out what to do, and it turned out that I did not have what I needed to do it properly. Bleach. Not that bleach is always a necessary part of the process, but in this case it would have been. I did a bunch of other stuff, but I will have to buy bleach for the next time, which might be really soon if what I did turns out to have been ineffective. So, I guess I do not have what it takes to be a good stripper. Don't tell Mike.

The weekend has gone well with Cody. He has had lots of attention and lots of activity, and it has been good. His attitude has improved and he has even slept in two mornings in a row, although last night we did not get him to bed until after 8 p.m. which frustrated me to no end. It wasn't his fault. He had napped in the van and then had a tough time falling asleep once we did put him down, so that compounded things, but he wasn't really bad or anything. It has been nice to have back-up for the past two days. Mike has tomorrow off too, so that makes this officially a long weekend for us. Much needed, at that. Hm. I can hear Cody having a major tantrum in the bathroom right now. He is with Mike. Thank goodness. My emotions and hormones cannot handle any tantrums right now other than my own. Well, some of Jamie's are pretty cute and funny, but Cody's are downright nasty. Anyway, it is story time for the boys, so I guess I better go. I am too tired to write much else right now anyway. Perhaps I'll have time again tomorrow, seeing I will not be alone with the boys all day. Woo hoo!
