Getting Closer

...To losing my mind, that is.

 I just spent 45 minutes writing a blog post.  Then I accidently pushed the wrong series of keys, and my screen went blank.  Then this wonderful program did an auto save, and all my work was lost within about a 6 second period of time.

That lost post was titled "One of Those Days".

Indeed.

We're also getting closer to finishing the house Luke's been working on.  I think we're all ready for it to be finished.  That poor guy has been working himself into the ground lately.  A single man is not meant to hold 3 jobs...and be married to the likes of me.  I'm trying to ease his burdens as much as possible, but I'm pretty sure I'm getting a C- on that assignment.  Graded on a generous curve.  And oh, my poor kids.

I want to be a fun and easy going mommy.  My first clue that I was getting even less than a C- on THAT assignment was when Samantha asked me recently, "Mommy do you enjoy screaming, or do you just do it to scare us?"

Great.

Okay - time for either a long run or a long cry.  Haven't decided yet.  Based on my craving for nachos right now...should probably do the run.

I hope your weekend got better and you got a little time to yourself...and time to see Luke.

I'm sure most days you get an "A" . . . isn't it funny how our kids call us on our behavior? I think it is healthy for our kids to see us being "real" every once in a while and I think it allows us to have the chance to apologize and set an example of asking for forgiveness. :)
I really like your blog . . .
