When I disappear, I disappear, huh?
OKay - so here's the scoop - the beautiful computer Daddy got me has a nasty stinkin virus and I can't even turn it on because I'm afraid of losing all the pics and things on there. I think I have them all backed up on cd's, but I want to do it again before we get it fixed, JUST IN CASE.
Been extremely busy at work, the piles keep coming and i"m not complaining because it makes the day go faster.
I have still been waking up everyday at 4:30 - 5 to get us all ready and out the door by 6 so Daddy can get to work by 6:30. Kids go to the sitter for 7. And i am tired. 
Daddy's cousin is supposed to come and fix my baby for us, but he's taking forever to come to the house...but he's real quick to get to the house when he needs a place to crash, funny the way people are, huh?

"Duh, Mommy..."

Picking the kids up at the sitters today, I notice Little Man had his sneakers o with no socks. I remember sending him with a fresh pair of socks this morning.
"Baby, where are your socks?"
"I don't have them Mommy."
"Well, where are they?"
"I had to take them off because they were really dirty."
"Okay...." I'm looking at the sitter, she is smiling.
"We were playing over there in the dirt, and I was wearing my socks and htey got dirty so I took them off."
"Well, why didn't you put your sneakers on, or just take your socks off and play in your feet?"
"Because then my feet and my sneakers would get DIRTY."

Rollerskating Number 2

A friend and I went rollerskating with the kids yesterday. It was all rainy out with Ms. Hanna trying to pass through but she hadn't reached us yet. So it was my two and her five year old god daughter. Boy - did they have a blast. No pictures today, unfortunately, but can you imagine a skating rink full of kids no older than 12 and almost every single one of them hanging on to the wall for dear life? My friend and I were actually on the floor with Little Man and the Little Ms. (while I was holding Baby Girl, she thought it was hilarious) holding their hands while they attempted to skate. Little Man did much better than the last time, spent less time on the floor, and it was only his second time. I love that. We played a few rounds of air hockey - we ended up kicking Little Man and Little Ms. off so we could get a round in. We were like children ourselves, air hockey brings out the best in everyone.
It was a nice relaxing day, and no more than an hour after we got home the kids fell asleep. Hanna zoomed through a little after Daddy got home from work, and all the channels had tornado warnings along with the tropical storm warnings, but it was harmless. The lights went out for a minute (literally). Today is a nice sunny day, and I"m actually going to walk to the corner market with the kids to see what we can make for dinner tonight. I felt a little "blah" when I looked at what we had. Maybe something to throw into my crockpot - I got that thing for Christmas and I still have yet to use it.

Why, yes, I am alive....

I have always had a certain respect for single mothers. My mother was one and I alays watched the struggle and the emotional aspect, and the bullshit she had to go through.
With Daddy's job I feel like a single mother A LOT.
I don't want to complain, because I'm ever so eternally grateful that he HAS a job, but I'm worn out with these kids. I can NOT sit down in front of the computer because they will start "Mommy, I need..." (Little Man) and the arms up to be carried (Baby Girl) or they start to fight over a toy...normal kid stuff. But my fellow referee is not here to help. The cooking is impossible. The cleaning, yeah right! good joke! My daughter is at the stage where she wants everything he has, and there is constant screaming (mostly from the two of them, but some of mine thrown in for good measure) going on. I'm looking at my kitchen floor right now : clothes. shoes. toy cars. a hanger (WTF?) and a chair has been pulled in front of the fridge. I should get to all this... I really should...
Whatever, I'm dealing.
Right now as I write this, they are fighting over a ninja turtle 'action figure' because Baby Girl only wants to play with Little Man's toys and he's not having it, but yet he wants to play with hers.
the wonderful life...LOL!
