Lets here them.

For me it's that I'm sleep deprived. Yeah, it's for a good cause, but it still has me grumpy.

So many today for me!

My biggest is that I still don't have anyone to watch the kids after school & school starts next Tuesday. We interviewed 3 candidates and they all would be ok but just ok..... Each has positives and negatives which are completely different. Dh is not being very helpful. We are so spoiled because our summer nanny is sooooo awesome! And I knew right away that she was a fit during the phone interview. We did the family interview & hired her on the spot. Unfortunately she has to go back to college. She has spoiled us for everyone else!

Other than that, I'm really achy due to the weather change - it's cool & wet here which kills me.

I'm exhausted too, although I don't have as enjoyable a reason as you do, Liz. We've just been super busy and to top it all of I didn't sleep well at all last night, nor did dh. We were supposed to go grocery shopping tonight but I think we're going to push back to tomorrow night because we're both so beat. I hope you get some rest soon!

Kris, I'm sorry you're having trouble finding someone who fits as well as your summer nanny! I hope you can decide on someone you feel good about!

Kris, yeah it's hard finding a replacement when you truly loved your past person.

Kayla, yeah it's enjoyable. You'll be here before you know it.

I am taking care of my neighbor's dog for who knows how long. They had a family emergency and they do not know when they will be moving back to the house. (long complicated story) Non of their family wants to take the dog. She can be a really good dog or a really bad dog depending on her mood. I feel bad for the dog. So I get up 20 mins early to take care of the dog. 4:40am comes way to early!!!!

Not Monday any longer, but here goes:

I hate the Pokemon game that all three of the boys have. It allows them to link up their DSs and play together, but it also gives them something else to fight about. Plus when they have a friend over, it's another kid with a Pokemon game. Urgh.

Will.

Keelan is teething and still doesn't sleep all night.

Oh my Tuesday by far makes my grumpy Monday look like a walk in the park. Ethan has been cluster feeding and won't sleep anywhere other than on my boobs for longer than 30 mins. This started around 1 am last night, well technically this morning. Amazon f'd up my order and over charged my debit card, now my account is negative. My amex gift card gave me trouble and if I want to use it online I lose $1. The post office never left me a slip for a package DH has been waiting on, good thing he asked me about it. Then I go to call the local post office and the number wasn't in service. I mean really?! The doctors office screwed up and charged us for Ethan's first visit and now the insurance company won't refund us, we have to now fight with the doctors office for the refund. I had to pay a huge medical bill before it was reported on my credit. Ughh there's more but I'm getting a headache just thinking about it all.

Ugh that sucks Liz!

My Tues was sucky too! We're dog sitting the neighbors 1 year old boxer. He's a great dog but untrained & ruly. Well his bad behavior has been escalating the last few days. Last night the kids were playing outside & he was out too. I went inside for a bit & he jumped on dd. She has multiple scratches on her face & body. Thankfully he isn't mean & she didn't get seriously injured. But she was very scare.

Today when the owners come back, I am telling them that we will not dog sit again. And that I recommend he get some serious training as it could be serious next time.

It's all week for me. I seriously can't wait for school to start Monday. My dsc don't help at all around the house. When I do finally get around to cleaning it, they just track more dirt inside. Brea is crawling and getting into everything. She doesn't sleep through the night. I go back to school on the 27th and she still refuses to use a bottle so I'm not sure how she is going to do with dp. Af is here and I'm a bit testy. Dp is constantly telling me I'm to hard on his kids, sorry for wanting them to keep the floor clean because Brea puts everything in her mouth. My laptop keeps flashing a blue screen and restarting and our Internet keep going down.

Ugh why can't the kids help out with keeping the house clean. I don't get that notion. When there are younger ones who don't know any better the older ones need to pitch in and make sure things are safe for the little ones and/or pets. I expect one of the girls to sweep daily. I expect my son who is 7 to put his plates in the sink. If not, then the dog will have a field day with anything on the floor or left behind in that plate. Once Ethan starts becoming mobile, he's going to shove whatever he finds in his mouth. Forgive me for wanting help in keeping things run smoothing around the house.

Eekk sorry for the rant. Guess I feel your pain.

They used to have chores. But it didn't last long. Now they are just suppose tonput the dishes away after I wash them. Dp would make them do dishes and put them away but I woke up one day to get a cup and noticed chocolate with chocolate sauce still in the bottom of it and decided forget it. Its harder to go after what they were suppose to be doing then for me just to do it.
