I'm tired. So very tired. I just really want to go back to bed. Mercy.
It is just after 7 am and I have been up since 5:30 am. Last night we skipped Awana (kid's club at church) because Aiden was so exhausted after school- he almost fell asleep on the floor. Poor kid. On the upside he stayed at school all day and didn't try to run away at all! He even told me he had fun! So that's a relief.
Anyway, I had foolishly given Owen a nap earlier in the afternoon in preparation for Awana. This meant that Aiden went to bed and fell fast asleep at 6:30pm. I was so tired I could have gone to sleep then too. But tragically Owen was wired from his nap. And Olivia was refusing to go to sleep in case she missed something interesting. The little monkeys didn't go to sleep until after 10:00pm. Then Miss. Olivia and the cat tag teamed me all night making sure I woke up at least once an hour.
There is no justice.
Did I mention Doug is away at a pastor's thingy?
And so here I am this morning getting Owen ready for picture day at school. Making lunches. Getting the boys to eat breakfast. Wondering how I am going to convince them to EVER take off their halloween costumes... which they have been wearing steadily since we got them on monday.
Aiden's picture day is tomorrow. Doug comes home tonight.
I really think the boys would like to wear their costumes for picture day. I wonder what their teachers would do if I just let them?
And I left the stroller outside in the open last night and it rained on it. So now I get to take Olivia to school with the boys in a wet stroller. I'm sure she will enjoy that.
I am thinking that after Owen is at school I am going to come home, put a movie on for Aiden, put Olivia down for a nap and lay my lazy self down on my couch.
