Interesting week

My kids have all of next week left of school with Friday being a half day. Then I'm committed for the rest of the summer, literally. ;) While I look forward to summer, I can't help but think this one might turn out to be tougher. 8 & 14 fight like cats & dogs often. 14 is always doing little things to antagonize 8. ALWAYS. I guess he loves to hear the screeches & whines that come out of 8's mouth, even though he's constantly complaining about it.

The week was interesting because the dynamic between the older 2 has gotten worse. I'm thinking for the earliest part of the summer, they will both be spending much time in separate rooms.

My niece & nephew are here for the weekend, both for the first time in a long time. My 2 youngest are stoked! 8 keeps telling me "I love my cousins!".

14 & my nephew are participating in an overnight air-soft war. 14 has been looking forward to this weekend for over a month. I know when he gets home from school he'll be an impatient wreck. He's done these air soft wars several times & the last big one had around 80 kids. The family that hosts these things is a good family with at least 2 acres, so there's plenty of room for it. I know it'll be something he's talking about long after it's over.

I am already over summer vacay 2 weeks into it! Maybe if I felt better it'd be different...thank goodness my sister bought the new DS's for a gett'n outta 4th grade gift, very convenient for lay on the couch Mommy ;).

I wore my magical (they seriously are!! All kinds of cool stuff happens to me when I wear them!) pink earrings to the Dr's the other day and EVERY nurse that saw them wanted them!!! They couldn't believe they were hand made! I need like some biz cards or sumth'n for your Etsy shop!!!

Good luck with all the chaps!

Miss you! XOXO
