J has been gone for not even 48 hours and the kids have given me such a HUGE headache...... I really don't know what to do?
They are fighting like crazy.
Being completely disobedient.
Arguing with me constantly.
Fighting with each other.
Screaming and hitting each other.
Have I mentioned fighting yet???
I am at a loss......... my throat is sore from yelling....and the climate change here is dryer and so my nose and throat are so dry.........I know I sound like I am whining and not grateful......I am extremely grateful to be here........just not sure if I like the idea of me being here by myself!!! J is not sure when he will be back yet. He has a meeting tomorrow at 10 am with someone very interested in buying the business........please pray, we would really love it to sell so we can not have any obligations on the coast anymore. Also pray for us as we complete on Monday, we were able to do things backwards and have possession before completion which is SO rare and was such a huge blessing! our lawyers have made a HUGE mistake and so they are under a bit of a crunch and we just need peace that they will get it done in time.
I have been unpacking boxes all day and set up the girls bunk beds by myself. It feels good to make the house more a home and put things where I want them. I would like to try to have most of it done before J gets back. Maybe I am adding too much pressure to myself? I signed our family for membership at the YMCA. With that we get 3 free core sessions each so so far I signed H up for Ice Skating lessons and E for Highland dancing. I figure between those 2 days and me going to the gym and Foo to preschool that that will be enough running around!!
I am going to try a church out tomorrow, I will let you know how it goes! I hope it doesn't take long to find that family I am so used to having! Well there are my ramblings for today! oh and E and H rode our neighbors quads on Wednesday when they had us over for dinner (which was so great) and they both wiped out on the quads........like really wiped out! Em's elbow is literally black from the scratches and I have had a heck of a time getting the dirt out! she got it on her back, elbow and ankles. H got it on her elbows hand and knee...............just brutal! so we are thinking of waiting a year before we get them quads!! the one Em was on flipped with her still holding on and then rolled over her. Mind you they have governors you can put on them so they don't go so fast! and of course once our girls felt even remotely comfortable they tried to ride them full tilt......apparently fear is not a factor for them!
thanks for listening to my rantings!!! any suggestions for the fighting and creative and effective punishments would be greatly appreciated!
