I've been up late at night with a lot of insomnia lately. I know part of it is just the time of year and thinking about Christmases past and those no longer with us. Part of it is worrying about the future. Some of that is silly or not controllable and some of it is understandable. Lily starts preschool next week. How will she behave? Will she listen to her teacher? I'm sure it will all work out and that there will be some adjustment. My biggest concern is getting up early enough to get her to school. I've been working really hard this week to get Madi on some sort of schedule so that I'll be able to get up earlier in the morning. I was in bed last night at 10:15, which is good for me. But I laid awake until almost midnight. Pedro came in at 4:20 with Madi, who had peed the bed. SO, I got her to sleep around 5:40, and I didn't not wake up until 9. Lily starts school at 9. See the problem???

I did think that maybe Pedro could take her to school. As long as everything is ready, clothes, snack, bag packed, etc. He should be able to get her out the door. It's a new exciting thing that's going to take a bit of getting used to. Add to this the fact that the house is still in flux because the construction isn't done. WHEEE! There's just no place I can pick to put Lily's school stuff. I mean, I would put it somewhere but someone else *cough, Pedro, cough* will probably put his stuff there too. We're not good at sticking to rules. :P

Anyway, here are some pics from Christmas and a video. wheee!

I'm pretty grouchy. I say that I'm not sure why - but I'm pretty sure that I know why. The house isn't finished and everything is in flux. I did hang some pictures up tonight and Pedro grouched. I just can't take things being such a mess. ALL OVER. I was proud of myself for taking the time tonight to go through a couple of boxes and sort through things.

You see, we are waiting on having our new windows put in SO I don't feel like setting things up in the house only to have them covered in construction dust. So we wait.

Also, Pedro wanted a new desk and that's fine, but he took mine apart (I have his old one) and now all the things that were in/on my hutch don't have a home. And that's a lot of stuff. So I'm going through what I can but it's tedious and heck it's almost Christmas? bah!

So I'm feeling bogged down from all the chaos and grouchy because I can't do anything about it until the house is all done. *grouch*

But we did get a good pic with Santa this year.

Merry Christmas, y'all and happy thoughts for the New YEAR!

PS (I'd like to throw things out but our garbage is full and garbage day was yesterday so I have to wait a week and we already have garbage from an early Christmas so *SCREAM!*)

So I'm sick. Actually, the girls and I are sick. I know you might be thinking, oh good for Pedro, he's not sick. Oh he will be. And by then I'll be super tired and having to take care of his whiny butt. Ever notice what complete babies men are when they're sick???

Anyway, I'm also a little grouchy. I didn't sleep well last night but it wasn't because of Madi. Well, mostly not because of Madi. This cold is AWFUL. Are colds getting worse?? I know germs can mutate. It seems like they're getting worse. GAH

Anyhoodle, it's going to be another low key day at home. I might run out to the post office and then to get some milk because someone *cough* Pedro *cough* has been drinking all the milk. hmpf
