I'm back again.

Phew. Long week. Had a bit of a break from this blog, but not intentionally. On Wednesday we went into town, but for the life of me I can't remember why. Oh yes, a banking appointment. At any rate, the boys all came with us and we did not get home until about 8 p.m. Ever since then, things have been unpleasant around here. Poor Cody. I think he just doesn't do well with late nights. Yeah, I know. That probably doesn't sound that late. My boys go to bed at 7 p.m. every night. If they stay up later, they still get up at the same time every morning, so late nights do not make for positive days afterwards. Yesterday was terrible. Right after I told my sister how level and rational I have been recently I turned into some kind of psycho mom, yelling and acting like a crazy person. The day was a total write-off. I had to invoke the cone of silence for a full half hour over lunch time. It seemed to confuse Cody. It probably confused all of my boys, but it seemed to snap Cody out of his terrible state.

Other than battling with kids all day every day, my computer cord broke so I could not get on here to update anything. I now have a brand new cord, so I'm back online. Amazing how lost I felt without my laptop. My battery had about 5 minutes left on it so I had to avoid it altogether.

Today, Mike finished work just before lunch time and he is now on holidays. Woo hoo!! He is still doing homework for the course he is in, but he'll be done that by the end of the weekend and then I will officially have back-up for a while. Good thing too, as I am not feeling so hot. I am almost 100% done my Christmas shopping. I think we just have one item left to pick up, and I do not look forward to doing so. I really do not enjoy shopping at the best of times, but in December it is about the last thing I want to do. I might see if Mike will do it. He doesn't seem to mind the crowds.

Anyway, super tired here and Micah is getting a bit impatient on the floor, so I will have to end this here. I have laundry to check anyway. I will probably post more often now that I have my laptop back!!!

Micah just wrapped himself up in a blanket on the floor. All I see are his legs sticking straight up. Silly baby. Goodnight.
