Busy, but good day!

Posted free drawing contests in both my Posh group and Colorstreet group,  worked on some photo editing,  and always laundry! 

This afternoon, Munchkin and I had a water balloon fight.  The teenager showed up during it, so she snuck up on him when he got out of the pickup. Of course, he and his friend joined in with us for the last few filled balloons.  

Munchkin’s reading lesson went very well today! She was so proud of herself. I love it!

She wanted star nails this evening,  so I did Colorstreet on all fingers for first time on her.  It only took 2 1/4 strips! We’ll be able to do both of our hands from one package, and still have left over strips! 

So much Fun!!

The concert was a blast!   My nephews, middle son, and myself decided ahead of time that we were NOT going to let the oldest back out on us, he might be mad at us on the ride, but once we got him there, he’d have FUN. 

Thankfully, by Saturday night, he had calmed down, decided on his own that he really did want to go, and there wasn’t any problems.

It was youngest son’s very first concert, and it was a great one!  Friends of ours from our hometown were also there, we met up with them and ended up staying in a group.  They have a daughter the same age as my youngest, and they’re friends, so it made an even better time for my boy, he wasn’t stuck with just us “old folks.” 

Middle son and his girlfriend, her brother, and their friend managed to be up at the front, so we didn’t see them again until it was almost over, if they moved, they would have lost their spot! 

Oldest even stood up for part of the time, someone would stand on either side of him for support.  It was so good to see all my boys having FUN!!!!!

I am thoroughly exhausted today. We didn’t get home until about 2:30.  I did sleep in a little, but, I think I should have just really slept, instead of getting up and trying to get things done this morning.  I probably would be feeling better if I did.


An overwhelming day

This morning has been overload!!!! 

Oldest is being difficult, has decided he doesn’t want to go to the concert (expected)  he’s being grumpy, and has even broken up with his girlfriend. (happens often when he’s in this mood!  She’s a saint for putting up with it!)

14 yo has been a fight to get out of bed, and stay awake to do his school work and chores.  He keeps falling asleep while reading, then arguing with me, telling me he wasn’t sleeping.  I’m sorry, I just stood there watching you for several minutes with your eyes closed, and no page turning going on, you even jumped when I said something!!

Munchkin has been peeing all over the house!  She’s done so good staying dry all week, but this morning, she’s gone through 4 pair of panties in 2 hours.

I have tons of editing to finish, like always.  At some point, I really need to get some groceries in this house, laundry is piled sky high, and I have mentioned I’m sick this week?  Kidney infection, my back and hips are killing me!!!

But, you know what? You suck it up, buttercup!  Some things just have to be done, whether you “feel” like it or not. It’s called responsibility, and being an adult.  Remember, there are always things to be thankful for, and if you look, you can always find reasons to laugh, or at least smile!  Life is what YOU make of it, even on the bad days!  You have the choice to sit back on your pity pot, or shake it all off and move on!  I am choosing to put a smile on my face, thank God that we have all these clothes, even if they do need to be washed, at least I have a washer and dryer!  Yes, my boys that are home today have horrible attitudes, but, they are home, alive and well!!  And, their bad moods will pass.  And, sooner or later, things will “click” with the munchkin, and she will use the bathroom all the time, and the time potty training is no time at all when compared to an entire lifetime. 🙂
