Early bedtime tonight YIPEE

The kids went back to school today. Ahhhhhhhhhh. That's a sigh of relief, you know the one. Seriously, we had a great two weeks holiday, and as much as I love my little angels/devils, it's always good to SEND THEM BACK.

We had a few days just laying around home, playing all morning then watching dvds and eating popcorn in the hot afternoons. I think I played every sport imaginable with my son, baseball, tennis, handball and of course football.

We did lunch a couple of times, met some friends at the park twice, did the Mcdonalds thing with every other mother and child in town on this particular day, made pizzas for lunch several times and of course went to the movies. So I can say that all in all we had a great time.

So today when the kids came home from school it was as if they were raging animals or something had changed their DNA to frickin annoying. They were fiesty in the car, and when we got home, they basically trashed the bedroom, you know, the one space where I want peace and calm and comfort and unclutter.

No amount of calm yelling! would get them to behave. BEHAVE. I thought to myself "right, it will be dinner and early bedtime, you cretins"!

And to put the icing on the early bedtime cake, whilst The Hubbster and I were up on the house admiring the work done today, the buggers ate all the cooking choc bits left over from the lovingly made muffins I cooked today.

Now they are eating dinner and *snigger* they don't realise they will be going to bed at 6.30pm. This is my way of not having a mummy tantrum.

You should hear protests in about 14 minutes time.

It is now 6.45pm and the kids are in bed. And my plan backfired.

Miss T said "I'm tired, I wanna go to bed"

Mr C said "it's good to be in bed".

Miss D is reading quietly.

WTF? Now I just might have a mummy tantrum..... But at least I can have an early wine and some Trueblood.....

Darn - nothing worse than kids liking their punishment!!!

We had a pupil free day yesterday (I hope) so today is first day back.

Just caught up on a few posts - hope your hand is okay now, and I thought your house was already half-done before you got to it?

"calm yelling": I so know what you mean!

Hope everything goes smoothly (and less painfully) w/ the biopsy.
