They've been off school a week now, and the effects of the looser structure is showing. Too much TV, too much video games, too many late nights, too much holiday food, and now too much of eachother's company. They're getting on MY nerves now, too! I think tomorrow we will place a moratorium on all electronics, load the bikes in the van, pray it starts and head down to the park for some fresh air and sunshine. I'm tired of husband laying around watching House marathons and me picking up everyone else's dishes. Just because it's a holiday doesn't mean the maid comes to our house. I'm tired of the difficult child-ness coming out in a big way, the bickering, the pestering. difficult child 2 was very prone to loud angry outbursts today. difficult child 1 only took Focalin in the morning and forgot his patch, so he was just delightful this afernoon (not!). I was ready to throttle him by 5:00, and eventually gave him another dose of the Focalin. easy child and I tried to watch a movie around 7:00, but the boys were just being PITA's, so I sent them upstairs to annoy husband. He did manage to get them to shower and then they all watched House until 11pm. I just finally got them medicated and to bed. Although difficult child 2 is wanting to sleep on the couch again. Tomorrow, that's it! Everyone is going out... Out... OUT!!! Or else I'm running away! P.S. I did take my mom to see "Yes Man" today -- so that was a nice treat. Funny movie -- inappropriate for anyone under 17 in my opinion despite the PG-13 rating.
