Well, we survived the weekend. Sunday was a long day after a long week, I hit the sack at 6:30 and never got up! Yes, I slept 13 hours and boy did it feel good. I must have needed it although I missed my hubby on Facebook. Kyle's game didn't go so well. We should have beat this team, they couldn't beat another team that we did beat, so it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense why we lost 0-2. We played one of Skagit's select teams, silver division but select all the same. The weather was crappy, it was probalby in the 50's perhaps high 40's, although I think it was the wind that made it feel that way. We had high gusts and wind throughout the game and it rained for most of it and not sprinkling, it rained! No score at half time, but then they slipped one in and then sadly we ended up with a PK against us and they scored that one. I think by that point we were falling apart. Kyle played a great game, he played with no breaks, but played as defender and most of the game was actually played on their side if the field suprisingly enough. I only got a few shots since it started pouring, I posted the best one I got. Anywho, on the up side to all of this, we had Labor day off! Yeeeeha!
So, got up about 7 this morning and got going on the house. We made eggs for breakfast, watched a movie and then I came downstairs for the afternoon to clean our room...whew, what a mess. Got all the laundry done and put away and the kids in bed by 8:30...we're on our way to a school schedule! They've been staying up way too late and so with school starting on Thursday it's time to crack down to a schedule.
Sadly today was a little rough, Kyle was great, cleaned his room, very well, I might add. I gave him a few hours on War Hammer, but as usual that bit me in the butt! He was fine getting off but everytime I asked him to do something, it was half ass. Man, I get sick of that crap. I hate that I can't give him computer time, I hate that he continues to turn on his TV and do what he wants when I'm not looking which is a blatent disregard for my authority. So he's going to Stacie's this week. He's grounded from the computer, Wii and TV. Every single thing I asked for this afternoon wasn't done to completion even after I specifically asked him to do that, he argued with Brooke repeatedly and Brooke got in trouble too and he didn't do the dishes after I've asked him all weekend. I even did what dishes I dirtied and left only the nasty crap he left in the sink and he still kept putting it off. I hate being the bad and guy and I know because he has his moments, that life can go smoothly and we're all happy, but he always screws it away! Why? Why do kids do that, was I that bad growing up? How did my parents survive if so? All these questions and no answers.
So on the lighter side, Kyle's room looks great, all his stuff is ready to go for school. We have open house tomorrow night and because they changed the teachers around, he will remain in ACE and get the teacher I wanted for him. On the darker side, I didn't get to Brooke's room and I can't even see the floor....ugh! I wonder if Kyle will ever figure out that he can't compar himself to Brooke either! That would another argument precented tonight! On the lighter side again, while everybody was getting along, Brooke was playing in the backyard and I couldn't resist getting the camera out and taking some shots. She asked me earlier what do birds eat that we have the in the kitchen. I told her probably only bread. She asked for a piece and I told her she could have one. So she carefully planted small pieces of bread in one of her small toy bins strategically in the back yard. Then she wandered the back yard trying to catch either a small bird or a butterfly. She was puzzled when i told her that bread won't attract a butterfly. She asked what do they eat...I had to tell her I hadn't a clue. So she continued in her search with her little pink babie case. Then I had to get some candids of her and actually got a few good shots.
Now that I've written a book...I sit her thinking it's late and I was really hoping to hear from my hubby. He's probably tourning Singapore, so I think I'm out of luck tonight. I would have liked to hear his voice although because of e-mail we run out of things to say. Sometimes I miss the good old days when we had plenty to say because we hadn't spoken in so long. But I don't miss the phone bills! Anywho, if you read this honey, sorry I missed you but I have to start getting to bed on time or else the children may not survive deployment! Hope you have a great day and I love you!
