Last day of June

Where did it go?? The entire month of June, gone, in the blink of an eye.

The days seem to creep by so slowly sometimes, then I wake up one morning and the entire month is gone.

Maybe I should look into physics, there's got to be a way to make this weird form of time travel work to my advantage??

I haven't been updating this blog as often as I'd like, because there hasn't been much new to report!! It's been terribly rainy, too, so I haven't had lots of pictures to post.

We're still here, doing our thing. Rayce is a couch potato, some days I have to fight with him to get him to turn off the TV and go outside to play with everyone else. The kids really enjoys Noggin... a little too much!! Rayce got a tomato plant yesterday, to plant in the Topsy Turvey we bought months ago... and he thinks the plant will grow one tomato every night, because on the cartoon Oswald, that's how it works. LOL!! Holden is trying hard to learn some manners. Lately, when I have to talk to him about something, he'll say to me "You can't tell me what to do". Ummm... scuse me?? Yes I certainly can, and I will, and you will listen to me or you will be spending a lot of time in the corner and eventually in your room!!! Charlize has been growing an attitude the last week or so, too. Out of nowhere. I'm not sure what's going on... maybe she's getting sick, maybe she hasn't been getting enough sleep, maybe it's this funky weather. I'll probably never know! Dante surprises me every day with the things that come out of his mouth. For a kid who was barely talking 6 months ago, his speech is incredible. He's a little parrot, he repeats everything! Liliya is starting to talk more, trying to repeat sounds and words. She has always had so much more personality than I remember the other kids having at her age. She's so happy-go-lucky so much of the time, and she throws these incredible temper tantrums in the next moment. She is a very intense kid!!!

As for me... I saw the dentist for the first time in 8 years yesterday. The hygenist tore my mouth up with an ultrasonic water scaler. Ouch!! My mouth is still sore. But it feels great to have super clean teeth!!! Considering my lack of dental care, I'm doing wonderfully, no cavities, no problems.

Some days I have to make a conscious effort to not lose my mind. Really!! The kids are crazed sometimes, bouncing off the walls, being incredibly loud, fighting like cats and dogs. Other times, they'll all be sitting on the couch together, cuddled up with their arms around each other, so sweet and placid. Just like everything else in life, I suppose... up and down, pros and cons, black and white, and all over the place.

Busy day

I'm spending today on a super cleaning marathon. Once I get moving, that is. I've got to clean the upstairs. The bedrooms are a mess, and I need to wash all of our bedding and then get the beds made again, vacuum, dust, etc. Then I've got about a million pounds of clean laundry to put away. Seriously. I've got like seven 2 bushel baskets piled high with laundry. It's a lot of laundry.

We've got a graduation party to go to at 4, so we have to leave at 330.

I want to make sure the downstairs is picked up, swept, and mopped before we leave, too. I hate coming home to a messy house. Especially since I'll have 5 kids with me... things have to get done before I have 5 kids. Or they won't get done at all.

I've got to get 3 kids and myself bathed/showered and dressed, hair fixed, blah blah blah. But I can't do that until right before we leave or we'll be messy again in no time. So we're doing all of this in our PJ's :o)

I'll pick up the boys after the party and keep them for the rest of the weekend.

Tomorrow is *supposed* to be nice (knock on wood???). I'm keeping my fingers crossed. And my toes. And my eyes. Ok, maybe not my eyes, I can't see straight when I do that, and I don't want my face to freeze that way :o)~

If it is nice, I'm gonna put the slip'n'slide out for the kiddos. Hopefully. Maybe just the kiddie pool. We'll see how it plays out.

I also want to get this stuff hung up in the kids rooms. I've had these pictures and wall decorations for a year now and they're still not hanging up. Airplanes for the boys room and dragonflies for the girls room. And we need to screw the bedrail back on to the thing on the top bunk so I can keep the boys seperated at night... Holden and Rayce do NOT go to bed, they just keep messing around, long into the night. It's gotta stop!!

Maybe I should have titled this post 'Busy Weekend' instead?!

Anyway, gotta get moving before I try to fall asleep again :o) Man, you would think 9-10 hours a night would be enough sleep!!!
