Today I woke up in a bad mood because I had errands to run.
I had to mail off a book I sold on ebay.
It cost me $8 to mail that book. EIGHT DOLLARS! I mailed it to Wyoming which is only two states away. That is the last book I ever mail!
I also needed to stop at the store for milk.
My kids were noisy today. Whining, complaining, screaming, crying.
I fantasized about sending them to daycare and public school.
The kids wanted to go the library. I was so tired that I lied and told them the library was closed.
Brooklyn got a timeout for laughing at Payson being naughty after I’d told her not to.
Brooklyn has a major problem with encouraging and telling her siblings to do bad things. She loves to see them get in trouble. Brooklyn gets in trouble for not only the bad thing she tells Sierra to do but also for telling Sierra to do it.
She’s finally stopped telling Sierra to do bad things thanks to this.
For the most part.
My kids asked for McDonald’s on the way out of the store today and I responded, “Yeah freaking right.”
Payson screamed the entire drive home. I blasted music and successfully fought off the urge to drive into oncoming traffic.
During lunch the girls laughed at Payson wrinkling up the pages in my scriptures. They got 15 minute timeouts >:-(
Questions about my schedule-
I’m not a schedule person. At all. I am very go with the flow. But Brooklyn is the most dependent-on-schedules child I’ve ever met so I made that schedule 100% for her benefit. She thrives on it. We follow the schedule 3-5 days a week. Definitely not on the weekends. And most often not on Mondays because I’m recovering from the weekends and can’t stand to be “told” what to do when I’m playing catch up.
Weekends are cruel. Mondays come around and are so dang miserable as I go back into the next five days without Allan around 🙁
Several of you are asking me what I eat every day and I don’t want to answer. I don’t eat well. I usually get so busy I forget to eat until 1pm. Then I’ll have a salad. At 2 I’ll have a bite sized candy bar or some chips or a bowl of peaches. At 3 I’ll have a sandwich. At 7 I’ll have a normal dinner with Allan.
If I force myself to eat in the mornings it’s usually a yogurt before Payson gets up. A banana while I make the kids breakfast. And a hard boiled egg while the kids eat breakfast.
I look better in the pictures I’ve posted than I do in real life, I guess, because I look huge in real life. I’ve even received a couple comments of “you must be due soon” this week. I need to lose 40 pounds after the baby’s born to be back at my ideal weight. If I gain more weight that’s just going to be more weight on top of that 40 😛
Though I don’t typically gain much weight at all during the last month. Thank goodness!
I can’t believe it’s the last month of my pregnancy. In two weeks I’ll be full term. 3 weeks after that she’ll be here!
The pregnancy, extra iron, and fiber combo are making my intestines unhappy. Though unhappy gives me a visual of my intestines off in the corner crying. No, my intestines are angry. They’re in the middle of the room kicking and screaming.
I want to get a t-shirt saying something about how staring is rude. I’m really sick of people staring at me. Staring is RUDE! For any reason!
I’d like to go take a nap now. Too bad it’s actually the worst part of the day. Dinnertime! UGH.
I took just a few pictures today. When I’m moody I tend to dislike my camera.
I don’t enjoy having a toddler. I never have. They can be so cute and funny and make life so fun. But the majority of the time all they want to do (at least my toddlers) is destroy stuff.
And with two other kids the opportunities to make messes come all too easily.
Like Sierra going pee doesn’t even bother to tell me that Payson is in there unrolling all the toilet paper.
Payson loves to hang on the edge of the cart while shopping.
Even the shortest shopping trip exhausts me.
I attempt to kill my bad mood with scripture reading.
But it didn’t really help because my kids screamed the whole time and I got up over 20 times to get them stuff and then Payson tried to ruin my scriptures while I was up refilling his drink. *sigh*
Sierra… she’s such a good kid.
I ate another one after I took this picture 😛
