Single Motherhood Nearing an End.

It is Thursday night, just after 10:30 p.m. I just settled my last kid about half an hour ago. That was Lauren, thankfully, and it is not unusual for her to be up this late. I have not established a very consistent routine for her, for some reason. Maybe because she is my fourth. Either way, I'm glad that so far, none of the boys have been up. I'm tired, and still have another full day on my own tomorrow, even including bedtime. Bedtime really is my worst, but I got through it tonight by being a bear and not tolerating even the slightest fooling around in their room. I worked very hard today, but my house is still very messy. I was so hoping to surprise Mike with a clean house when he got home, but it's looking less and less likely. I guess I will just tackle whatever I can tomorrow and hope for the best. I have most of the morning to do so. Then we are heading to town to watch Cody swim at his lesson, and to pick up a vaccination for our horse. Because I will be flying all day, I will not be posting in here, I don't think. But hopefully I will get a chance soon because I have something on my mind that I need to say.

For now, I just need to sleep. And write in my journal. I wish you all a good night. And, if I haven't said it enough already, hat's off to all you single parents out there. May God bless you and your children in an extra special way tonight.
