something has to give here. i've had 4 kids for the last 2 weekends & with working all week, out of the house for 10 hours a day then getting all 4 every weekend has just been too much. i'm wore out. hubby has had to take it easy due to stress. i'm ready to hit the hospital just to get a break.
nah, can't do that. someone has to run the house. the strangest thing is you wouldn't believe all the things i've gotten done even with the kids.
maybe being that busy just keeps me motivated. i don't know. i just know i need a break.
i received an email this week that showed a drunk, beat up turtle & the caption said 'my mind has snapped & my ass is draggin'. i thought that summed it up pretty well.
this past weekend we had the kids ready to go & has i started out the door i saw jammer in the street. he's not allowed in the street so for starters he was in trouble. then i saw 3 other little boys in the street & one was pretty much nose to nose with jammer. as i reached them the little boy took a swing at jammer & jammer slammed him back with a left then a right. i said 'whoa, whats going on here?'. jammer replied, 'i'm taking him out.' i thought i'd lose it but i held back the laughter & asked him 'where to'? he looked at me like he could hurt me. i've never seen such a look of meanness. i could tell i was in for it too. he said 'memaw, you need to go in the house.' i asked how old the boy was & he told me he was 6 years old. i informed him jammer was 3 & he surely didn't want to stick around to get whupped by a 3 year old did he? he left. without another word or punch. guess he decided he didn't want that embarrassment. after all if you live in this neighborhood you never live anything down. just ask sonny. he'll tell you how these kids can be.
well, i have nothing else to say tonight. i'm tired & it doesn't look like i'm gonna get a break this weekend. i have another weekend with all 4. they will be here by noon today.
oh, i forgot to mention this weekend was our major fundraiser. i was out of my home for a total of 18 hours. part of why i'm so wore out tonight.
there will be no rest for the wicked.
damn me. why do i have to be the wicked?
