The Wednesday Write-Up....On Friday

-Wesley is on round two of swimming lessons. He did well the first time but his teacher suggested enrolling him in another class this summer to learn some more and become more comfortable. She said with that age it's best to keep them in water so they don't back track and lose all they learned. This time he's got a guy teacher that has them in a deeper end of the pool. He sure is trying but he's going to have to learn how to relax before he'll go much further. He's my little trooper.

-Each evening, after the kids go to bed, I plunk myself down on the couch and sculpt. I watch tv during this so I don't die of boredom. My newest show is Mad Men. It's streaming on NetFlix and I'm darn near through Season 4. It's a show I don't particularly like but I'm so invested in it at this point that I must finish it out. I really hope it's not an accurate depiction of the 1960's.  It's quite depressing and I find myself wishing they'd somehow insert some humor into the show. I swear when I'm done with it, my next series is going to be a comedy because I'm in serious need of some humor.

-It's not helping my mood any that my kids have gone nuts. I don't know if there is something in the water or what, but ever since we got back from Colorado they've been at each others throats. I've set mandatory nap time for Greta again since she seems to be the instigator. She's such a bully! Luckily she goes down easily and sleeps for a couple of hours. As much as I'd like to think the nap is for her, in reality the nap is for me....I need a couple of hours break from her. The screaming, crying, hitting and all around bad attitude is for the birds! Who ever said it's the "terrible two's" knew what they were talking about.

-Can you tell this week has been rough? It has. I'm in need of a mental health day more than ever. And by "mental health day" I mean a day out by myself without children. Some people call it shopping therapy, what ever you prefer to call it, I need one. So tomorrow is officially my mental health day....and by golly I'm getting out early.

Have fun! I remember mental health days. They are truly a lifesaver...the boys, not mine!
Miss you and love you.
