The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Sisters!
THE GOOD

I ran 2 miles tonight and it felt great!
Everyn has been awake a lot of the day, and I am hoping for a good night!
It is a full, beautiful moon and I am not going to be at work!
I got a picture of the girls together that does not have Berean acting as if Everyn is toxic.
Our house is full of life!
Our church has brought us awesome meals, and they have been such a blessing!



THE BAD

My kitchen is still in disarray.  I am trying to take deep breaths and just go with it, but it is taking a toll. I am not irritated with Noah about it- this is just the way it goes when you have 5 kids and jobs.

My whole house has taken a beating.  I don't think it has been this big of a mess since Lincoln was a baby.  I am determined to pull things together, but it is not going to be easy!

This week we get back into our routine.  I need to spend some time tonight trying to stratigize our activities and how they will be handled with all the children.

AND THE UGLY...

We have had some tough behavior lately with some of our children.  It is hard to know how to deal with it- especially when they refuse to give us any inkling about what they are thinking...

I have been sleeping on the floor for a couple hours a night with Everyn.  The reasons are perhaps crazy, but they are there none-the-less.  My back hurts, I am too old to sleep on the floor.

The mounds of laundry are ginormous.  That is all I will say about that.

love the picture
like the good
if the kids need to have a little heart-to-heart with their Aunt Karla I can skype with them...I am sure that is the reason they are acting up- not enough time with A. Karla:)
