When does school start?

How many more days until school starts? I need to go and count...the boys (especially Danny) are driving me nuts...

6 more days...or 3 more days without Peter to keep "the calm". Danny believes that all day every day should be about fun. He is going to be in for a rude awakening when school starts. He will need to get all of his work done before any playing happens. The sooner he gets his work done the sooner he will get to sit down and do your homework now and not later. I can see this is going to be a big problem. I'm trying to not let it get to me but the anticipation is already getting to me. His attitude today did not prove anything else to me but the impending doom...I wish I was a much more laid back person than I am, but with my genes, that was never gonna happen...

Alex just came in and asked what to do with something. All he did was argue with me.

I'm falling apart here...I can't hold it together without getting annoyed anymore. I need to have one of my children do something...anything...the FIRST time I say it. That is something that NEVER happens in my house and I am trying to figure out how to get it to happen, BEFORE I lose my mind.

It's a pity I don't like taking baths...or I would say"Calgon...take me away..."


  1. You are not alone.

    I'm still working on them doing something I ask before I have to scream it.

  2. yeah...but my kids are older than yours...shouldn't I have the hang of this already?
