I finally am feeling more human today. I thought I could loaf one more day before I got back in the swing of things. But as I was showering Chrissy came hauling ass in the bathroom and puked and couldn't lift the lid up on the toilet seat in time. It was so pathetic. Mommy, she cried, I'll clean it up. So I let her. Just kidding.
It took me two hours to clean the bathroom. Once I got on a roll I didn't stop. Walls, windows curtains etc. Now my nose is bleached out. It's all I smell.
I wanted to really clean tomorrow but we have to go get wood. That really sucks. The wood lot is two hours from the house so we have to leave by 6am. I would let Dave go himself but if he cuts off a limb or a tree falls and crushes him he'll need someone there to laugh and scream. Today I got the van stuck because I took it out back to spin on the ice and he slipped pushing me out. When he got up he said," You were laughing weren't you?" No, I lied, I wouldn't laugh at you. I guess if he reads this he'll know for sure.
I think my mom is doing better than when she first got here. Although she is cold all the time and wants the heat to maintain in the seventies. It just isn't gonna happen with a house that is this old. I tried to explain that some people we know keep their thermostat on sixty at all times. She doesn't like when I say that. She also doesn't think I discipline my kids enough. So much so that she attempts to do it herself. I'm not sure what to do about that yet. Her grand kids now stay away from her for the most part. Any ideas?
We haven't done anything else in the room. I think I'm going to explode! Sharing a room with the girls is fine but we homeschool as it is and there is not any alone time. If you know what I mean....
