Ever in the mood where you know there are things to be done but you'd rather do other things?
That's why I am here and not doing what I have to do...
We had a rather bad end this evening for a pretty good day. I was already tired from all the excitement we had with the Cuddle Family (Thanks, Angelia). Grandma is not well, so I made dinner for the boys (noodles), Gadget-daddy and myself (egg sandwich).
Then we played and read books and played some more. Got the boys to clean up and brushed their teeth. Then Max slipped downstairs and raided our bag and came up with 3 containers of biscuits. I was too tired to think right and let them have bite-size biscuits in the room. Then he opened another box and started munching on the animal biscuits. Then the storm from Mommy started:
No more eating in the room.
Stop! There are crumbs every where! Do you want the ants to come sleep with you?!
Go eat downstairs or no eating. Choose!
Then I had to sweep and mop the floor, so more scolding in trying to stop them from walking/running around.
It's exhausting to be angry.
Finally, Gadget-daddy came to their rescue. Played with them while I mopped the other rooms.
Then I put a batch of laundry into the machine and came back to our room. The boys were still playing, so I asked, "Anyone ready to sleep?"
"Nope. We are still playing."
So I said good night and crawled into bed and hoped they follow suite. I fell asleep almost immediately. Then I woke up to see Gadget-daddy fast asleep, Micah, asleep, snuggled right beside me and Max asleep on the cold floor! Oh, and movie still running on the computer.
So tonight I did not get to kiss my boys good night, but they still get kissed anyway...
Now to get to the laundry.
p/s- Gadget-daddy finally bought the card-reader, so check out the last few posts for the shots, Tracing as far back as "Earth Day" :)
