You absolutely must stop scaling the doggy fence and escaping into the big yard. I know the squirrels taunt you, but you're not that much bigger than they are and if they enlist in the help of their dear friend the hawk you will be gone forever.
You absolutely must do a better job watching your sister. This would be the perfect opportunity to use that annoying bark to get my attention so I can let both of you back inside.
Please explain to me the fascination of pulling an entire container of wipes apart one by one!
When you asked me Friday night if I could make a 5 shirt for you for your birthday party on Saturday I said I would try my best. Sat morning after Pa and I ran to the bank we made a quick trip to Hobby Lobby to buy a t-shirt and some fabric. Your party was at 1, we got back home at 11:30. We still had to shower. I made it a quick one and while Pa showered and shaved I was working like Gus and Jacques. Cutting, ironing and stitching your 5 shirt. I was just a little sad that after all of that you refused to wear it. Five needs to be more cooperative and aware of other peoples' feelings.
You've been a real mother with your wintry ways. I'm glad to see you leave, don't let the door hit you on the way out.
You may have noticed that I last posted ten days ago. I've been having a rough time. The gray days and the never ending snow aren't helping. But like The Little Engine That Could I kept trudging along. Hoping that things would get better. When you mix perimenopause with PMS and SAD you get someone who is cranky, irritable, and exhausted all the time. I put on a happy face but I wasn't there. It's not the way I wanted to be, especially not around the boys all day. So I'm trying new meds and I wish I could say they work just like a light switch, but unfortunately they don't. And the side effects, yeah they suck too. Except for the one where food doesn't taste so good and I'm not really hungry. I like that one! Hopefully it won't be too much longer before I feel normal and get my mojo back.
