Ssshhh! Don't tell the difficult children I told you guys this... My house has been quiet enough to hear a pin drop ALL DAY today!! Wow! I must be in the Twilight Zone or something. difficult child 1 is in her room with her laptop (actually, she and difficult child 3 share it - they saved their allowance/extra chore money all summer to buy my old laptop from me.) She's been working on her online assignments most of the day. difficult child 2 has been...OMG...I can't believe I'm saying this about Mr. I HateToRead, but he's been on the couch reading all day!! (He read an entire book yesterday and started on the 2nd book in the series today. OMG!!) difficult child 3 is sacked out on the other couch sleeping. Poor guy has had so much trouble sleeping at night what with a cold, and ragweed season, and half his eye/nose still bruised and slightly swollen. He's just miserable trying to sleep at night. Wow! Shhhh. Just don't tell them I told you guys.
