Re: Happy Basic Monday

Good morning. I am enjoying a quiet morning with GMA. Haven't done that in long time. MH is sleeping, Jerry is doing some car work.

Going to be a good day for a car ride, miserable outside. Windy. Steady at 40 with 60-70 gusts.

Re: Happy Basic Monday

Morning mamacitas.

I am almost caught up from being away. We have groceries now, the laundry is caught up, the house semi-presentable. Made a list of all the April events (and there are too many, ugh) and will do the calendar/meal plan later today.

Lost it this morning. Rosie is being an extreme PITA, and she pokes the bear with Ginger constantly when not complaining how unfair her life is. I have no patience to deal with her when she is constantly setting Ginger up to get in trouble or make her brother cry. I try to reward her when she's good, but those moments have been few the last couple of days. I know she's coming off of Spring Break/grandparent withdrawal but lordy she does not have to pull everyone else down with her.

Sipping my coffee and eating breakfast, in a bit I will tackle the day.

Re: Happy Basic Monday

Lordy, I think you described my kids. Bella spent about 6 hours doing 3 sheets of homework yesterday. (with a few sanctioned breaks in between) Every time she complained or whined I gave her a basket of folded laundry to put away. After 3 baskets she shut up She also lost roku privileges for the week. It is an awesome age.... Mari is to the point that when she starts on her woe is me routine she gets sent to time out. She is ever the dramatic pessimist.
Lydia is running a low fever, chunky sounding cough. Trying to decide if I stay home with her (how glorious would that be??) or make her try. It is only 99.5.

Re: Happy Basic Monday

Oooh, I like that idea Jess. Taking away privileges doesn't seem to have the same impact it used to. Making her do chores she doesn't like for each infraction sounds better. I don't care if she takes 3 hours to do homework, she is taking herself out of privileges as far as I'm concerned. But the other stuff I have lost all patience for. And of course Ian is going through a constant whining phase and Ginger has no attention span post-break, so it is a perfect storm going on up in here.

Ugh Kari. I need to take my car in for maintenance, but I don't want to bring Ian there. Or waste a "day off" to do it. Ugh.

The house is almost clean now. I swear we swept and vacuumed before we left, but you could never tell it now. Floors are my least favorite chore. I'd leave it for Rose but I have the sitter coming less than 30 minutes after she gets off the bus.

Hey girlies


Windy here too! I'm loving it.

We just got home from our homeschool group. Jim went with us today, which was lovely to have him along. One more group session and we're done for the year! Mixed emotions on that one we still have lots to get through at home though, before baby arrives

Now for a little relaxation, a little organizing, then obgyn appt.

Enjoy ABQ, Jen!
