Easier talking to a brick wall

2 days ago, we signed a contract with EJ, stating (among other things) he will do what he is told without whining or throwing a fit. Today, I tell the boys to clean their room. EJ opts to play on his Wii, so I take the Wii remote away. then he opts to watch TV instead. When I unplugged the TV, he told me I am "being nasty". I reminded him of the contract he signed. Wound up having to take away a couple other things from him. (as he is worse than Connor in THAT regard). Had to sit back there yelling at Connor to get him moving because he will focus intently on one teeny tiny thing (like putting a single lincoln log away) and forget the world around him, so the only way to bring him back to Earth is shouting.

So, it has been around 3 hours since their task to clean began.. and they still are not done. they should have been done 2 hours ago! Dealing with these kids is like talking to a brick wall!!!

We survived yesterdays storms. power went out sometime after 5pm (like, 5:30?) and came back on around 11pm. When dealing with two small children, that is an eternity for EVERYONE! No damage here at the house, we havent looked up at the property yet.

Zoey is doing well, blending in great with the family. She sleeps in our bed every night. She and the cat get along great, she hasnt been having too many accidents in the house lately, so that is a plus. And she is very very sweet and loveable.

Would you live in the perfect house or apartment rent-free if you found out a brutal murder had taken place there and it was rumored to be haunted? Why or why not?

Well, sure. I mean, sad as it may seem, murders happen. If everyone refused to be anywhere where murders happened, there wouldn't be many places left to live/go. And as far as 'rumored to be haunted'... we have ghosts here, and you don't see me running away screaming LOL. we have ways of dealing with entities that wish to do harm, and we have no issues with the peaceful spirits that are all around us.

i MUST be crazy

I am getting ready to go camping for 2 nights with my adorable little pests. We are going camping with the cub scouts, jim is staying home to get work done without the kids in the way. So, 2 nights with the kids, fishing and doing cub scout-y things.. then church on Sunday. yeah, i think i will be nuts by sunday morning....

If your parents were transformed into their true animal spirits, what animals would they be?

i am only doing this because it is cute...

OK,if my mom was still alive, she would probably be transformed into a panda, as they were her most fav animal of all- she had panda stuffed animals, a panda latch hook picture, panda wallpaper in her bedroom, panda bedsheets, pillow cases, etc, a panda painting hanging in the living room, and a dog we nicknamed "panda dog".

my dad- a cat, or maybe a sloth *snicker*

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last Friday I broke wanderingdream's X-Box (-12 points). In April I put money in jkrtrialblog's expired parking meter (14 points). In July thingswrong and I donated clothes to the needy (11 points). In May I set clockworkblack's puppy on fire (-66 points). Last Tuesday I invaded Iraq, broke it, and couldn't glue it back together before Mom got home (-1012 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-1065 points). For Christmas I deserve a moldy sandwich!

small bit of an update

Jim and i were discussing EJ's "behavior problems" at school (like telling a teacher to 'go away, i know how to do this!' for instance) and the fact that school is STILL just SO EASY for him. EJ said he IS bored in class, the work is so easy.. which REALLY explains to me why he has problems with always bouncing out of his seat in class. So we talked to EJ and asked him if he wants to keep going to school with Ms. Christy as a teacher, or does he want to do school at home again? we told him we do not want an immediate answer, to think about what would make him happier.

HE has been home sick for a week at this point. he and Connor still have coughs and stuffy noses from a month ago. last week took them to the doctor, both had an infection in their right ears. put on antibiotics and other meds, still werent showing ANY improvement so i took them back yesterday. Ear infections were worse (EJ now has a full blown DOUBLE ear infection. Again.) so changed antibiotics. I went to the school and picked up the work he has missed over the past week...

So just now, EJ was talking about wanting to go camping. He wants to go like, TONIGHT. I said we cant because he has that ear infection, plus if he is feeling better tomorrow he can go back to school. "The school up the street?" yep. "Oh. I'm still sick, I need to stay home" thats my boy!

got stuff from the Boy Scouts yesterday.. if you remember, I signed up to be the assistant den leader for EJ's cub scout den. Well, according to what was sent to me.. i am Cubmaster. eep!
