Day 2 of single motherhood...

The morning is nearly over, and so far, so good. The sun is shining so brightly in this house, and it is looking rather clean in here. I worked my butt off yesterday to get it clean, and though there are many things I could still do to improve it, it's looking good in here. I might get really ambitious and wash a few floors later today, but I have not decided yet. Washing the kitchen floor is such a big job, and the boys usually destroy it within hours, so it's hard to motivate myself to do it. That's not the kind of job I'm willing to do every day.

At any rate, we are surviving here. I decided to keep Cody home from school again today. I was torn, as he is feeling much better, but when I thought about putting him on the bus at 7:40 a.m. for a long day at school, I decided it would be too exhausting for him when he is still fighting this strep. His stomach is still hurting on and off too, so I just figured it would be best to keep him home one more time, and hopefully he will rest when he needs it. Right now, they are all running around like little maniacs, which is not unusual around here. I will boot them out later. It's another gorgeous day here. The snow is melting and everything, as it was yesterday too. Very strange winter weather we are having this year.

Everyone has eaten lunch now, and things are...energetic. They are loud and running, but they are happy for the moment. We had a rough patch before lunch, but here's hoping for a quiet afternoon. I might even bake. Exciting times. I suppose I don't have much more to report for now. I had a scare with Micah this morning, but I don't think I'll share it in here, lest anyone think I'm a terrible mother! Let's just say I thought he was lost, and after a good five minutes of adrenaline and terrible imaginings, I found him safe and sound...and grinning. Now I'm off to continue trying to hold this place together in the midst of so many boys.
