I. Am. Exhausted.
I could seriously fall asleep sitting here right now. It's been a very long week.
Last Sunday, our truck took a poop. Specifically, it had a bad fuel injector that fouled up the oil lines and burned up the catalytic converter and caused it to misfire on cylinders 5 and 6. Nice, huh? It took 3 garages four days to diagnose and repair. In the end, Praise be to God, it was covered under warranty.
There was open house at school on Monday. We got home at 9 and while the boys showered, I made Andy's birthday cake.
Trevor switched to the small town football team and began practice this past Tuesday. Every night, until almost 9. That is a big change for us. The kids are usually in bed at 7:30.
Tuesday was also Andy's birthday. So, while the boys showered I iced Andy's cake. We had a quick slice before bed.
Then the boys started school on Wednesday.
Mabel has been very upset that we're forcing her to be awake past 7:30. I keep trying to explain to her that she is free to nod off at any point and she refuses to hear me. She screams instead.
So, yeah. It's been cold cut sandwiches for dinner 3 nights a week now for over a month (first baseball and now football). I'm sick of it already and there are like 8 weeks left of football. This is baptism by fire to the whole youth-in-sports thing. How do parents do this successfully? Seriously - please share tips if you have them!
I barely got any laundry done this week.
I found out that the home I had my eye on isn't going to work out. The same day, I found another home to rent that WILL work out. We'll move some time around October.
I haven't cooked a good home cooked meal in a couple of weeks and I want to.
I need to vacuum. And start packing.
