The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

Our weekends generally leave me more tired than the work week.  All of the stuff we procrastinate doing during the week, for the kids, for ourselves and for the upkeep of the house get shoved to the Saturday To-Do list.  Perhaps it's not the most healthy way of doing things. 

Friday night Steve was stuck working until past midnight.  I was struggling home alone with the two kids, trying to take care of Andy, feed them both and still manage to keep my sanity.  I did have the joy of Andy's GORGEOUS school picture proofs.  I have to scan and post them-- all 11 poses came out fantastic.  If I could buy them all, I totally would.  After dinner I called usedmonk and talked to him for an hour-- totally making my night.  I miss having him around so much.  I fell asleep waaaaay before Steve got home. (This is the Ugly)

Saturday morning was the rush cleanup before the arrival of my mom and Foobie.  We were taking Foobs and Rachel to see Harry Potter and then he was sleeping over.  My mom was staying at our house with Andy. 

The movie was awesome but I felt like they cut so much out of the story (they had to, that was one seriously long book) that the pacing was rather fast and a lot of key details that will be important later were kind of glossed over.  I will probably make a separate post filled with spoilers about it.  Still, the movie is the good.

The rest of the day was spent dealing with the kids.  I had to run to the grocery store for stuff to make dinner with (spaghetti and meatballs!)  My mom never put Andy down for a nap while she was here, so he finally concked out at 5 and slept until 7.  But then he was up until 11 pm, playing with Foobie and Rachel.  All in all, a nice day. 

By Sunday morning, Rachel and Foobie had had enough of playing with each other and started getting on each others' nerves and hence, on my nerves as well! (The bad.) We went up to my mom's and had dinner there.  I did some work on Christmas projects, made my mom a no-sew fleece blanket and listened to Steve gripe about the Steelers game, which the network cut off one minute before it was over.

Yep, that does sound hectic! You're amazing girl wanting to add yet ANOTHER baby into that mix. I'd tear my hair out! :)

How's the Foobs doing these days?

Foobs is adorable. He's so smart and you can't put anything past him. I love that kid and his curly hair.

I am ready to tear my hair out. It's been very hectic and I am looking forward to maternity leave.
