Hugs Chelle!  Yes, it is nice to be able to get up and see them off every day, but there is no reason at their age they can't get up and function on their own in the mornings if needed.  Matthew goes off to college in 3 1/2 years and he will need to be able to do all of that on his own, I would politely/gently remind Tim that you are raising your kids to be self sufficient for when they go off on their own, not relying on you to do everything for them, that's your job as a parent.

This is absolutely crappy morning I've had in a long time.  I got up woke Matthew and Natalie, Katie stayed home again, and ended up falling back to sleep.  Tim came down at 7:30 and I woke up and discovered they never got up.  So I woke them up again and told them the time.  They had an Oh crap! moment and jumped up.  Natalie had to catch the bus at about 7:40 and did manage to get out in time.  I got Matthew to school on time also.  Tim procedes to tell me that it's my fault they did this.  That if I hadn't gone back to sleep wrapped up in a blanket on the couch they wouldn't have.  What the heck?  I am one a a few moms who stay up and see their kids out the door!  I know so a many who never get up and see them off to school.  They are old enough to get themselves up and out the door.  Anyway, I told him to shut up and to just go to work.  I didn't need that from him first thing in the morning.  So he tells me I will if you will.  What the........  That made me blow up, he snuck out the door without me knowing after that.  I am still so pissed, I am tired of his comments and digs.  so, nice morning huh?  I am so fed up with all this.  Sometimes I wish I could kick him out or walk out the door with the kids and never come back.  I do not want to spend too much time alone with him anymore and it's sad.  I am just cleaning things today.  What else is new?  Scopping the litter box out.

Tomorrow, I am helping my mom take her dog to the vet and then later is the Christmas parade.

Sunday, who cares.  Nothing that I know it right now.  I am sure I get to referee between Tim and the kids again like I do every weekend.  He likes to stir the pot and I get to deal with the fall out.

We are getting an early start.  On load 2 of laundry, dishwasher emptied and reloaded.   Zeph has already taken a history and a literature quiz and is now working on a history project.  Hoping to leave the house by 11 and go out for breakfast followed by seeing the Lincoln movie, Kohls, doggy boutique, DSW, Target, ToysRus, and then picking up Buffy.  He'll have some school work when we get home or he can do it over the weekend.

No exciting plans for the weekend.  I'd like to watch a holiday movie, continue with the laundry, and deep clean the kitchen and downstairs.  I have to rewrap a gift that the cat unwrapped.  I think we might put tgether a gingerbread house too.

Well, I"d like to think the board just doesn't like me, but I think its a pretty non-discriminatory board right now and spreads the "not working" love around. Tongue Out  Forgive me for my blahness, its been a long and frustrating week over in my patch of the world. 

Today, not real sure.  I am working on a project, possibly an errand at lunch, or a nap.  After work I have a chiropractor appointment depending on traffic, and I have no idea what's for dinner tonight.  DH is going skyudiving, and yes, I"m just a tad jealous, not of the skydiving, but of the ability to spend a week day doing something like that... Jordyn's pep rally was moved from before school to 11:45, so she didn't have to get up early.  She has team dinner tonight after school and then is going into work to prepare and blow up balloons for the birthday party she is working on Sunday. 

Saturday, probably a chiropractor appointment first thing in the morning.  Jordyn has to be at the school at 10 for the bus to the varsity football play off game.  It starts at 3, and its a 2 1/2 hour drive, so I am not sure why they are leaving that early, but oh well...  She won't be home til late tomorrow evening.  Emma has a birthday party from 3-5, its a "sophisticated tea party" and she is excited about it.  Its right down the road from us, so if I haven't gotten Madison down for a nap by then, I will try and get her down for a nap while Emma is at the party and then get the stuff out of the attic to put up the christmas tree I suppose. 

Sunday, Jordyn has a birthday party she is working at the gym as well as her normal work shift and practice, so she'll be gone most of the day.  I also need to remind her of some scholarship deadlines at the end of next week she needs to work on this weekend if possible.  I have to get groceries and start on my meal plan for next week, lots of laundry and paperwork for DH also.  A cold front is supposed to come in over night Sunday, going from the 70's into the 50's starting Monday, so I want to try and finish raking up the leaves in the yard.  I've tried the past few weekends and its been so windy I can't get it done, and I need to see if DH can get us some firewood also for the cold weather setting in.  Nice to finally see some in the forecast.

Have a great weekend ladies!!
