It was a long day.
We spent the night at my sweetie's last night.
We usually do on Friday nights.
I cleaned up and vacuumed his house this morning.
Then came home and cleaned up and swept here.
We all took a nap.
I picked up the boys tonight.
We watched some of the Kids Choice Awards.
I bathed the youngest 4.
Got everyone into bed.
Chased everyone back into bed.
It doesn't seem like a lot of work.
Doesn't seem like a long day.
But it was.
I have been in a really bad mood for a lot of the last week.
I've been really irritable.
Down in the dumps.
I don't know if it's the time of year.
Almost that time of the month.
But I do know I'm sick of feeling like crap.
I'm really hoping that some sunshine and getting out of the house some more will help.
Hoping that the kids and I can spend a lot of time outside tomorrow.
It's supposed to be 48 degrees! Whooooooopie!
I need to get into a routine.
We have no routine.
In one of my books, there's a test to see what kind of parenting personality you have.
And I can't remember what my type was called, but one of the shortcomings of this particular type was following a routine (or lack of following a routine, anyway).
If you know me, you know that I love to make lists. That I love to make plans.
But then you also know that I SUCK at following through.
And I've gotta do something about that.
For my kids.
And for myself.
Anyway, that's enough deep thought for now.
Hoping for a good day tomorrow :o)
