What is with today?

I think it started yesterday evening. Brent is officially home now, but the first few days he has an off sleep schedule, so we go along with our business while he naps. He woke up around 6 or so and was starving. When he is hungry he can usually wait for me to cook something up, when he is starving he wants to eat NOW. Introducing my husband, Mr. Instant Gratification. So, since I was missing my magical 7 course dinner on the table wand, I opted for Pizza Hut. I had let my kids play outside yesterday since they have been on the ball with keeping their rooms straightened (notice: straightened is different from clean), well when I walked outside to open the gate and tell them to come in while I went to town I saw all three of them on the other side of the gate, covered in mud. OK, first off the mud thing doesn’t bother me, I used to take mud baths in my front yard, it’s the being on the other side of the gate. Our gate to close off our driveway sits right next to the road, a busy one, one where every Tom, Dick and Speed Racer drives down. Yes everyone in Texas moves slower, but this road holds magical powers to make everyone go 20 miles an hour over the speed limit. The speed limit is 30. Do the math. Oh and teenagers drive down this road. I didn’t pay attention when I was a teenager, I know they aren’t either. So that was strike one for the end of the day.

I wake up this morning around 7, a couple hours later than usual and decide to plop down in front of the TV with Brent and watch 15 Shocking Crimes of Violence (I think the name of the show was) on E!. An hour later I’m passed out and Brent is back in bed. DAMMIT! The kids got me up and had me make them some breakfast and I had them straighten up the toys they decided to drag out. Well they decide to go into my room and pick up the toys they “hid” in there. Instead of cleaning they used my exercise bike as a Ferris Wheel. Strike two, as they are screaming ‘weeeeeeeeeee‘ my husband is only feet away sleeping on the bed. Brent is a morning person mind you, but not a nice person when screaming is his alarm.

Strike three is pretty amusing, yet confusing. (oh look I rhymed) They all went into Brodie’s room and sat around calling each other names.

Brodie to whoever: Yeah well your a poop eater.

Dayton to whoever: Well your a boy.

Tristan to whoever: Your a princess.

Brodie again: Your an ugly booger.

Dayton again: Your a baby.

Tristan again: You smell like fart.

Laughter for a few seconds.

Brodie to Tristan: Your a little baby boy.

Dayton to Tristan: Your Lindsay.

Tristan: Aw man! And then the tears start from her.

I yelled once for them to stop, no results so I let it slide. I mean so far they weren’t getting upset and they all found the name calling to be humorous. Well for one, Tristan does not like to be called a boy, dammit she’s a ‘gwirl‘. For some reason her being called Lindsay is comparable to being called a very bad word and many of other ugly things. Why me and why today?

So now they are all getting along for the moment, Tristan threw on her back pack and told me she was going to school. Good luck with that one. And the high pitched screams are spreading through the house like wildfire. I am going to double the strength of my coffee this afternoon.

And since this Saturday at my house I have a sign out on the other side of the road (that’s invisible to us so I can’t take it down) that reads: COME KNOCK ON MY DOOR WITH NO GOOD REASON TO SPEAK TO US, I must get out of my lazy clothes and put something on half way presentable to the Spanish speaking bible study ladies, my MIL and the nice old couple from down the street who I should come visit but wanted to know if the stray dog was mine.
