I’m exhausted. Today was a long day. Even though I went to bed at 8pm the night before, waking up at 6am was no easy task. With two little ones pulling and tugging on various body parts, it was hard to sleep in. However, by 8am the boys were fed (devouring all three bowls of oatmeal between the two of them), we were all dressed and headed out the door to work on the Kensington house. And I had consumed not one cup of coffee… yet.
Working on the Kensington house while the boys are with me is pretty much a nightmare. For an empty house, there is a ton to get into and hurt yourself on. Every time I tried to cover the floors, the boys would jump and play in the paper. Then I would chase them out, only to have them fighting over toys less than a minute later. I don’t know how I got both bedrooms, the hallway, and the bathroom prepped, but I did. I even primed the blue wall in the front bedroom. It must be because I’m awesome.
After Mylo tried repeatedly to eat the primed wall, I decided that it was time to go home. Mylo went down for a nap, Jaxon “rested” in my mom’s room and I got to work on Don Giovanni. I forgot how exhilarating it is to be working and doing and acting and singing and LIVING! So much better than moping around worrying about what should and could happen. And I guess it helps that last night moving back to Texas was crossed out of my future. One down… a few more life decisions to go.
My sister was supposed to come over for dinner, but canceled. I knew I shouldn’t have dropped $35 on dinner. Sigh. Oh well, c’est la vie. Isn’t that something that Yo Gabba Gabba would teach us?
Who else but parallel universe me would say “Listening and Dancing to Music is AWESOME!” It is. Totally awesome.
