Ever have one of those weeks?

Yeah. I'm having one of those weeks. Too much shrieking, too much running away, not doing what told. Errands I have to do but the fear of taking the kids anywhere when they're like this. Gah. I need more chocolate, but that would involve going somewhere, and besides, I'm fat enough as it is. Things just have to get better.

Back from CA

We soent a week+ in Cali visiting family. I'm still in recovery mode and too tired and busy to get it all down. It was good to see family and friends; sucks that we had to go to the Central Valley. I HATE the heat and bad air. Going to mother in law's grave was an emotional experience. I think it went as well as a 19 hour drive with three young kids can go.

And when it's good, it's very good.

Today Boy Caesar got me up earlt. After breakfast I had time to do two segments of my exercise DVD before schoolwork. And he mopped the whole house. Turbo slept way in, so we were able to get all the schoolwork done by 11. We went and got Boy Caesar a scooter from freecycle lady, and went to the health food store for lunch. Had coffee with the Warlord. Took the kids to the fountain before we got home. Oh, and chocolate. Chocolate is good.

First Day of School

Sometimes I don't know who stresse me more- Boy Caasar, with his decalrations that "Death is better than math"; HRH the Fairy Princess, who can't concentrate long enough to write a whole word in one go, or Turbo, who takes advantage of me being occupied. No lie- today I told the kids to finish their Latin worksheets while I cleaned up Turbo's poop from the yard. Will someone tell me why I decided to teach a dead language to a hyperactive 6 year old?????
But the schoolwork is finally done, and even a load of laundry, and we are taking a break before the end of lunch chores.

Out of my head

I feel so disconnected the last few days, as if my head were floating around independantly of my body. I feel off, and it doesn't improve my interpersonal relations or my efficiency any. Next week school and work start back up, so I'll have to push through then, no matter how I feel. I don't know how to come back into myself.
