When it rains it pours. Our garage door stopped working just a few days after our small garage door cables broke. Then one of our cars needed a big repair. Then I came home to find that two of my boys broke our pencil sharpener-- the third one in less than a year. And these are supposedly the heavy duty kind that cost $50 on sale!. Had I sat down to write this post a few hours ago, my list would have been a lot longer. Oh yea, and our printer stopped working right when we needed it most-- the beginning of the school year. Three printers now occupy our trash can till Friday morning. Needless to say I was having a mini pity party as I tried to help Dennis and Alex with their homework. I can't believe what the school already have the boys doing. One page of their homework was unscrambling sentences. I think I wasted 1 hour of our life.
Oh and then there is the news that two of my boys who go to public school have been taught to play Bloody Mary. Not happy about that. All I have to say is what a stupid game.
On a happier note, Nolan is 100% better. Oliver is noticeably moving from here to there doing the army crawl. My son Adam has morphed into this super helpful son of mine that I still can't think of what I've done to deserve him. Caleb pumped gas for the first time with me. And Galina got an A on her Wordly Wise test last Friday.
William tried some of my coffee this morning because it had some creamer in it that I had splurged on for the birthday party. He liked it and I threw out, "Hey maybe it will make you behave better." :) Then I forgot about it. Just a while ago, William came to me exclaiming that after drinking the coffee (it was two sips BTW) he had zero urge to bug Paul. Could it be? He even peeled 30 potatoes for dinner without complaining.
Life is definitely hectic around here. The dogs barking at night don't help my beauty sleep either-- LOL. Out of sheer busyness and an upset stomach I canceled my dentist appointment for the 4th time in a row. But home school is going well. And the garage doors are fixed. And John bought a printer that was the last of its kind in a damaged box for $50 out the door. And it works great! And I know what two of my boys are getting for their birthdays making my life a whole lot easier. :)
Hope your week is going well.
