About Me

My Photo
My real life is a lot like THS (True Hollywood Story) except there's no fame, fortune, or drug addiction. Instead, I'm happily married, have two children, and a dog who's prone to barfing at 3 am. I love them all, but I also have to run away from them every day. I always run back, though.

Weekend Summary with Houseguests:

Drive to the beach with all 6 of us in the car. Endure 45 minutes of kids: "How much longer until we get there?" "Mom, Colby's touching me!" "I'm not touching him; he's touching me!" "Mom, I don't wanna sit here, how come I have to sit here?" "How much longer until we get there?"

Spend several hours baking in the sun, while the 2 boys run back and forth in the waves and do not tire one bit.

Drive back home with all 6 of us in the car and endure another 45 minutes of kids: "How much longer until we get there?" "Mom, Colby's touching me!" "I'm not touching him; he's touching me!" "Mom, I don't wanna sit here, how come I have to sit here?" "How much longer until we get there?"

Repeat on both days.

So...yeah, I'm beat. Between the time in the sun (which means I now look like a cross between a leather handbag and a lobster), and the constant kid-noise, I just want to return to a quiet home and sleep for about a week. But instead, I'm here at school (where there is an entirely different kind of whining to deal with); thankfully, our guests depart tomorrow and we get our house back.

Having kids around for a weekend is the best kind of birth control I can imagine.

Sounds like a lovely weekend. :) Keep the weather warm down there for another couple of weeks ok?

Marcy said...

LMAO, def birth control for you right there. You know what's sad (for me) is that nowadays when the house is quiet and the kids are gone, it feels really lonely and empty :-(

ROFLMAO, yep best BC ever.
I have to agree with Marcy when I do get some peace and quiet, I miss it.
Not even the ocean tired them out?! They are gung ho :-)

Those are some hard core kids. Usually a few hours on the oceanside wears them out, 10 minutes tops and out like a lamp.

I feel for ya! Rest up!

That is the best way to see if you are ready for kids.
