I'm still here!

Whew, it's been a while, huh? Things have just been crazy busy, with all these little people! I haven't been able to do much with the house, other than the bare minimum cleaning so the CPS doesn't come pick my kids up. But after today, I could call them myself, and beg them to come get these children. The long weekend was nice, in a way. It was laid back, go with the flow, doesn't really matter what time it is... just living. But. Then the kids got bored. And lost their minds, all at the same time, and decided that they needed to get Momma to loose her mind too!

They succeeded. 
But tomorrow, they're all back to school. I love Tuesdays and Thursday when they all go. But I also love Monday, Wednesday, and Friday when it's just me and Peyton. And I love the weekend when they're all home.

Right up until the point where they drive me insane. Then I'm waiting on Tuesday again.
During this spell of doing the bare minimum, the laundry piled up on me. There were three baskets of clean clothes in the living room, and dirty clothes that seemed to be reproducing while I wasn't looking. But yesterday, I sat my children down and explained to them that I had to do the laundry, I was going to fix them all something to drink, lunch would be served at 11:30, made sure that Peyton had a clean diaper, and told them not to bother me until I was done, that it was their fault I couldn't finish the laundry because every time I start, I hear "Mooooom"... and I'm slightly ADD, and forget what I was doing before they called me. 

Yeh. That talk I had with them?
 
They forgot all about it within 10 minutes.

"He pushed me."
"I'm thirsty." (Please remember I fixed drinks for everyone before I started the laundry. When I pointed this out to him, that he had something on the counter, "Oh. I forgot.")
"Mooooom! Peyton just pee-ed in my floor!" (He took the diaper off, put his pants back on, and then let it go.)

"Get out of my room! MOOOOM!"
Some how, I got it all done. Whew.

And now, I promise I'm never going to let it get like that again. I know that the best plan of action is to not take clothes out of the dryer until I'm ready to fold them. I know this. But, it never fails, someone needs something washed, rightnowomghavetohaveit, so I just put what was in the dryer in the basket and... forget about it. 
Oh, laundry, why do you do this to me?

And ya'll, we're having the most lovely weather here in Louisiana. It's heaven. The kids are playing out side, I've had the windows open for the past 72 hours, and I think my most favorite part: I can walk around my house barefooted and my feet not freeze off! I wasn't quite sure that I would survive this winter, a few weeks ago we had snow and ice and UGH, and now it's heaven. This I can live with.

About Me

My photo
I have three kids:
Blythe Anne, 8
Jonah, 7
Peyton, 4

My husband and I have been married for 6 years, and I spend my days being a stay at home mom while he's a driller on a land rig. So for six months of the year (he works a week on, a week off), I'm raising these kids by myself. I would write more, but I hear children screaming :)
