Think happy...


Today is one of those days when it is really hard to think positively.

The children are driving me insane!  I want to reach through a phone and choke the insurance company.

Frustrated I didn't have the correct adapter to run the paint sprayer I bought for furniture and then when Mr. Finn went and got it, I couldn't get the sprayer to work correctly.  So, hours and hours after beginning the paint project, I am finally done with two coats and it is 7 p.m.  Sad that I started at 10 a.m.

The sad part is that I love painting and it relaxes me, but I had to do a lot of prep work so I could spray, that it took a long time to get to the painting.  Had I known the sprayer wouldn't work, I could have skipped all the masking.

Did I mention the kids are driving me crazy!!!!!!!

Why will they never do as they are told or go to bed at a decent hour without yelling and fighting with each other?  And to think that I acquiesced and let them go to bed in our bed, with the caveat that they wake up in their own beds.

That's a recipe for disaster!

Big one!

So, after yelling at them, lots of yelling.  One really sad little boy face.  One defiant girl face.  Two scared kids because their furniture was mysteriously moved.  I vacuumed today.  Maybe I need to vacuum more so it's not such a big shock.  When was the last time I vacuumed?  Hmmmmmm... I am thinking April, the end of April.  Really! It was before my Aunt Lois came to visit.  That is really sad.  Really, really pathetic.

They are now in their own beds.  I apologized to said children for yelling.  Blew some raspberries on their bellies and feel a bit better.

Mr. Finn is at the fishing hole.  Just called me to tell me it is "Fish-ageddon", that he is having the time of his life and will be late getting home.

I think I need to go to bed and call it a day while my children are semi happy with their semi psychotic mom.
