Good night boys. Hello Pinot.

Today has been the longest day of my life.

In part, I think it's due to the time change. Brian is getting up an hour earlier and then we're all tired by noon.

In part, I think it was due to the boys and I having a day off in the middle of the week. But Josh still had to work. He actually had to work a double. So I had no back-up.

In part, I think it had to do with the fact that I'm still stuck here with no vehicle. No pressure Dad, still excited you are saving me hundreds in labor costs!

In part it's because Brian had what seemed like hundreds of bowel movements which led to hours of cleaning. It's because I have three HUGE projects due next week that I've been trying to work on. It's because every time I sat down to work on one of them the boys became extremely needy. It's because Corbin decided to make homemade lemonade on the table right next to my professional portfolio. It's because we played five different board games, did three "homework" games, one science experiment, played "Lego Town", allowed time for video games and a movie, had outside play time, went for a walk, and I still heard "I'm bored" a gazillion times today. It's because I'm stressed about everything lately. It's because I really, really need a break. And unfortunately, I don't see one in the near future.

Bed time is coming early tonight. And I'm thanking my lucky stars that I needed white wine for our shrimp scampi last night. Cheers!

I definitely have had nights like this. Usually it involves my daughter who needs me and my son with autism screaming at the top of his lungs for my attention. It is great to hear that I am not alone with these struggles.

Mid-week days off of school are the devils work. And this time change this is making me mental. This has been the worst week. Which I knew it would be. But it still sucks every freaking year.
