Guh, Im so frustrated! Ive put Josiah to sleep two times tonight already and he is in his room fussing again because my overly active older children CAN NOT GET IT THROUGH THEIR HEADS that they need to be reasonably quiet when he is sleeping. He woke up this time because Rayden decided it was a good idea to run around excitedly because I told him he could wear his favorite shirt to school tomorrow. Like some excitement is ok but seriously you don't have to make the house shake!
I look forward to the point when all the kids are in their beds and I can finally sit down for a few minutes and not feel guilty about it. Tonight though I don't know if that is going to happen. And, AND my favorite show is coming on in a half hour. They made me miss the first half of it last week so hopefully tonight will go a little smoother but probably not.
As for the freaking election yesterday, the conservatives got in again and with a pretty high minority. Like has the whole country been hiding under a freaking rock the last few years? Harper has ruined us! Just because he lowered the GST two cents and gave a few groups some extra cash (like parents of kids under 6 get $100/month for child care expenses)does not make him worthy of leading our country for a second term. He will ruin health care and destroy any positive feelings that other countries have towards us. The guy is a slimy douche really. In my own riding, my chosen liberal won out but it didn't really matter because I went back and forth over NDP and liberal for the last month and in the end conservative wasn't even close. My province is the only one that did not give a single seat to those smug conservatives! Um so ya, to sum up I don't like Harper or the conservative party! Hehe
Today has been one month since I moved into my new place. I planned to have pictures to show you all by now but my mom still has my memory card thingy for my camera and without it I can only save like 5 pictures at a time. Tomorrow is her birthday and I will be going to her place so I should get it back then. If I have time Ill take some shots of my messy little house and post em all for you to see. We do have a busy day tomorrow with errands all day and my Momma's birthday so I don't know if Ill actually get online to do so or not.
On Friday Rayden has the day off of school so we are going to a local farm to visit some animals (they have an emu that scares the crap out of me! I wont go in the barn if it is in there so I guess we *might* see some animals), pick out some pumpkins for the party and to carve ourselves, and buy some local, fresh veggies. It will be a fun outing! I obviously don't get a chance to do much with all the kids but where this is outside with lots of room to run and fences to keep them in, I think I can manage. I plan to use the wrap for Josiah, the umbrella stroller for Michael (then Rayden can push it if need be as opposed to my big, bulky one), and both Rayden and Chris walking with our wagon for the pumpkins. Sound a bit crazy? That's cause it is! Ive been thinking about this for two weeks trying to figure out how to make it work. See also: trick-or-treating on Halloween.
So now that Ive been writing this for about an hour and the kids are all asleep, my show is on and Im going to go watch it. Oh wait nope, there's Josiah crying again...
