No, kitty, there was no snow day today, because the snow didn't show. :(
And, from the moment I woke the kids this morning, it was all downhill from there. Overtired, cranky, ornery kids, who decided to give me hell and fight me for an hour.
It got to the point where I was feeling sick, exhausted and ready to scream, so I gave up. I called them in sick.
Now, they are punished. Fuzzy and Pumpkin are grounded all week, 'unplugged'. That means no computer, no handheld video games, no console video games.
New rules have been instituted for bed times throughout the end of the school year, and early wake-ups for weekend mornings, in order to keep them both on 'ready for school' schedule.
Yep, they shot themselves in the foot big time. And, this is a milder version of the original punishment and plans that their Dad had for them.
Hammer is not included in the punishments or restrictions as he never, ever, has pulled this difficulty. Not with school when he did attend, or with homeschooling.
Ugh. Not a fun day at all. No one said parenting was easy or fun all the time! Nope, more like nailing jello to a tree. <sigh>
However, it is now behind us and we are all moving forward.
My dad and I went to finalize our kitchen plans with Lowe's and get our estimate from them today. It was more expensive than we hoped/guessed, but not outrageously so. We are waiting on another estimate also.
That was the best part of my day! LOL I really enjoyed picking out the cabinet and countertop styles and colors!
Tomorrow will be a busy day. I have two doctor appointments for Hammer. First for his maintenance appointment at the Asperger's center, and then with the orthodontist.
Pumpkin has piano lessons tomorrow, and will have homework and make-up work to do. Fuzzy will also have much work to do afterschool.
Here's to better days for the rest of the week!
I am still so thrilled about the Giants making it to the NFC Championship Game! Yay!
