Still Here....

I am still here. Hannah's room is coming along. I will post some pics tomorrow night. It has been another crazy week. My two big kids are grounded and therefor "unplugged"...no cell phones and for Ben an added bonus of no x*box. The fighting reached an insane level and Chris and I could not take another minute. My dads advice, "Make them miserable enough to unite against you." So far Ben has read three books and Hannah doesn't seem to be missing her phone much, but is a little ticked that she can't go to the school dodge ball tournament tomorrow after school. BUT they are not fighting:)

Work is crazy. My sweet little behavior and emotionally disabled child kicked me this week. Was there a full moon??? She also had another meltdown on Tuesday. Now the system has assigned her a personal assistant...which can be a good thing or just one more person I have to manage. Only time will tell.

Apparently I could have possibly given my family a touch of food poisoning Tuesday night. I made breakfast for dinner....eggs, hashbrowns etc. Our neighbor gave me double yolk eggs so I made omelets. Everyone who ate eggs was home sick on Wednesday including me! Hannah and Sophie didn't eat any eggs and their tummies were fine....I knew those double yolk eggs were freakish.

I promise pics of three kids this weekend. Pictures of all three kids in their "new" rooms. crap and I need to take a christmas card pic this weekend too. Don't be surprised to get a Happy January card instead of a christmas card this year:)

Love your Dad's idea. Can't wait to see the photos. Never even heard of double yolk eggs, good thing I guess.

What on earth is a double yolk egg? I don't think I could ever eat one, after reading your story... ugh.

Looking forward to the pics! Oh, and Maryellen... COME JOIN MY NEW CLUB. It's called the "Chinese New Year Cards Club". You can send your cards in January!!! You know you want to join. :)

Ohhh, I like the idea of a January card. Hey, better late than never, right?! Needless to say, we don't have a picture for our cards either. Haven't even taken the super-on-sale cards down from the closet that I bought last year before I even knew about Alayna. Guess I better go dust them off and start taking some pics for my January card:)
Oh, and the full moon was in Maryland this week too. We had a sped teacher get taken out by ambulance after one of our SED kids punched her in the trachea. Lovely!! And she's a single mom of 4. Double Lovely!
Anyway, the kids were wild this past week so I am soooo not looking forward to this week. The week before Christmas break is always useless, stressful, and completely unmanageable at times. Should be fun!! Good luck!

Hi, sorry to hear about the food illness. Thank goodness everyone is okay.

Yes, I think there's more than Santa in the air this week and last! Odd behavior, meltdowns, picky eater, yeah, I hear you.

Well, take a deep breath, tomorrow is another day!

Look forward to your New Years Card!

Hugs,

Ivy
