Perfect Timing

Seriously? Why does it seem that my kids are naughtier when I'm feeling sick? Do y'alls kids act that way too? Or is it just a heightened sense of "naughtiness"?

Anyway, I woke up today to get the kids ready for school, and SO wanted to go back to bed after they left at 7 and 7:30am, but had a child care appointment for Jim at 8am. So I got him ready, and had him there by 8:15am. And came back home. But stopped at the gas station first to fill up the truck. And rested for a little bit.

My throat hurt, and I was feeling stuffy. Head congestion, I guess? I did get a little bit of stuff done, though. I cleaned the garage, and put things back where they went. And swept it a bit. And removed the clothes/toys/dishes. Really? Why are those things in my garage??? Freakin' kids... hehe.

Then I moved the broken shelf into the garage and stacked it nicely (finally, right?), and all the boxes of books went under the trailer. And it still looks pretty good. And the dining room looks a TON better. And I sorted the laundry into piles, and did a load.

And it was time to go and pick up Jim. But first, I filled up the Saturn with gas, then got Jim. And dropped him off at the bus stop. And then headed back to home. And had a little bit of lunch (though it hurt to swallow), and watched a few episodes of V on and off. And slept most of the time. Because I didn't feel good.

And soon it was time to get Jim from the bus. And we came back home, and I cleaned a little bit more. Then it was time for the bigger kids to come home, and it was Library time. And yeah, I still felt like crap. I brought some crafty stuff to make a Mothers Day flower as an example for Achievement Days on Wednesday. It turned out pretty good. Here's the example from online.

The kids were mostly good at the library, but I wasn't feeling too well, so they seemed super naughty. hehe. I brought them home, and got ready for Joe's baseball at 5:30pm. Tom was gonna babysit, and I was gonna get an hour in the sunshine with my chair. Sounded ok. I didn't have much energy for much else.

The house was clean, so Tom and the little kids got free electronics time while I was gone. And they did great. I made Joe wear his uniform to practice, and NO other kids were wearing theirs. And he was SO mad at me. He hid behind the car, and refused to come out. I had to drag him, crying, onto the field. And he just sat on the bench. And refused to play. sigh.

Finally, the assistant coach came and talked to him, and I don't know what he said, but he started playing. Thank goodness! And he had a lot of fun playing. We found out that they're having Wednesday practice, same time, same place. Tom has practice at the same time tomorrow, just a few fields over. So we can drop him off, come to Joe's practice, stay with him, then go and pick up Tom, and continue on to Scouts/Achievement day.

After practice, we swung by the Youth Center (not really on the way, hehe) to pick up Jake, then came home. And Jake was feeling pretty crappy too. So I loaded him up with some cold meds, and fed everyone dinner.

And I'm totally taking some meds after I'm done blogging. And going to bed early. It's only 7:35pm here. And I'm gonna finish this up, put the little kids to bed, watching something quick with the big kids, then head to bed. Drugged, of course. hehe.

Jake has his big Autism test tomorrow at 8am. I need to look for the paper that shows the location BEFORE I take meds. hehe. Wish us luck. Think Autistic thoughts tomorrow, so he can qualify for an IEP and more help. ha!
