Battles

Today was not a great day. Cody and I battled for much of the morning, and more of the afternoon. It was hard on both of us and left me feeling like a bit of a loser-mom. He and Jamie are both sleeping now, and I am feeling drained and a little discouraged. Tomorrow we start again. I just feel like I am getting grouchier and grouchier. Maybe I am just stir crazy. Maybe I need to get out of this house. I don't know what I need.

Other than my kids, all I can think about these days is horses. It's like I'm a teenage girl or something. Or a ten year old who wants a pony for her birthday. My favorite horse disappeared off the classifieds today, so I can only assume he got sold. He was a really good one. It's frustrating, but I am not really in a position to buy one just yet. However, we are going to look at a mare on Sunday. Yes, crazy, but we're just looking. If she's awesome, we might buy her. If not, we'll let things stand and see what happens in the spring. Maybe I should stop looking. I just don't know. All day I check kijiji to see whether any new horses have been listed. Maybe I should take a break for a few days. I just can't help but be excited at the possibility of having a horse to ride in the spring.

Micah is rolling around on the floor. It's pretty adorable. He is trying so hard to crawl. He is getting close, but he's not quite there yet.

Phew. I'm hungry. I didn't really eat supper. Guess I should go get a snack of some sort. I'm off for now. Oh, and for the record, I really don't like this Beattles song "All You Need is Love", and I'm sick of hearing it on every commercial and in movies too. Just had to vent that out. I'm not a Beattles fan. Sorry if that offends anyone. I just never really liked their style other than a few songs. Gold medal hockey game is on tonight, so I guess I will not be having any exciting plans. Maybe I'll finish my book. The one I'm reading, that is, not the one I'm writing. Pretty discouraged in that area today too. I'm off for now.
