Thank JEEBUS on a cracker the snow is finally melting, even the kids are ready to see the end of it. Husband and daughter went snowboarding yesterday with Stepdan and the Aussie visitors and coming home he got STUCK at the beginning of our gravel road, approximately 100 steps from our house. He had to chain up the car and rock it for quite some time to get it un-stuck. Guess what a great mood he was in when they finally got home around midnight.
Begone evil snow, begone!
I kicked everyones ass today and we put away all the Christmas decorations and cleaned up the pine needles from every nook and cranny. You see, I had the bright idea to host a New Year's Eve party (come over about 7ish, everyone is invited!) this year so in order to get ready for that party, we had to clean up from the Christmas festivities first. Then I will have four days to recover from New Year's Eve before I go back to school.
We made the boys take a day off from the television, video games and computers today. I know it is good for their BRAINS to not be sitting in front of a screen all day but my ears are bleeding! They rode their new scooters all over, shot nerf guns at each other while they were "helping" clean up Christmas and were so freaking loud I put earplugs in!
Time for a cup of tea and some quiet time. The twins are duct-taped to the walls in their bedrooms so they shouldn't give me any trouble.
