We had a pretty good weekend.

My weekend was overly stressful. I am having a VERY hard time with my boys arguing with each other. I swear I could have worn black and white stripes and carried a whistle around all weekend...all I did was referee! I've had people tell me to just let them work it out unless they are hitting each other, but that's SO hard to do. They just plain don't get along and don't play well together. They seem to lack that 'brotherly love' I thought all children were supposed to have! The only time they weren't bickering was when we all watched Planet 51 together and a short period of time when they played Wii together. Please tell me that as Alex gets older, they will be able to play together without tears and screaming!!! (Remember, Alex just turned 4 and Sean is 7.) I was instructed by Eric yesterday afternoon that I was going to go buy a new pair of shoes or a new purse. I found neither, but bought 2 new bras. I hate shopping and I'm trying to replace a particular pair of shoes which seems to be impossible!

This week, Eric starts working days, which I am so grateful for! He's been working 4-midnight and Friday and Saturday nights kill me. Every little sound puts me on edge. Something crashed in my house Saturday night and I had to call my dad because I was scared to go investigate (I never did find what made the sound). Sean's 2nd grade Open House is Wednesday evening. My classes for this semester started on Friday. I have College Algebra & Trig and Personal Health & Wellness. Other than that, I have no plans that I know of. :)

I'm jealous about the Container Store- sounds like my kind of place!

What is this brotherly love thing you speak of? ;) My boys bicker all day long and it can be sooooo draining! My boys just really need a break from one another so I'm glad school started today. Hopefully you'll see a change once Sean gets back to school!

I'm glad your DH is moving back to days! Nights are so hard on the entire family. I don't blame you at all for being on edge all night- I'd be the same way!

This weekend I took the boys to the college football scrimmage in town. There were 16,000 people there and it was SO hot! I don't think the boys really enjoyed it too much- bummer! Sunday we went to my FIL's house for a BBQ and I did a bit of shopping. Last night was filled with getting stuff together for school.

This week things get busy. Boys are back in school and PTA is in full swing. Cub Scouts starts up too and Larry has two meetings. Add to that my work and a few appointments and we should be running around like crazy people by the end of the week!

It's totally one of my favorite places.

Haha! I need that kind of aura to follow me home. Sounds like an awesome store!
