Life this week has been challenging to say the least yet once again. Well the good news is that I'm back to work, hopefully for a while this time. Bad news, my furnace went down again on Friday. The same man that fixed it the last time came back and this time, he and my husband crawlled under the house and he showed him how to fix it so when it happends again, we can fix it without having to call them again. Yikes! 400$ worth of repairs in one week! I'm so ready for spring its not funny. There are more signs of it happening sooner then the groubdhog says so. The redwings are back, the critters are stirring, but were in for another round of below zero temps next week. I guess it'll get here eventually just whenever it so darn pleases really. I got to spend some time with my brother yesterday while the kids ran ramshod over my moms house along with their cousins. It was fun to watch and see what they can get into. Then yesterday afternoon, my littlest "chef" decided to try and create his own scrambled eggs....the only problem was it was on my kitchen floor and before I knew it he had broken 11 of the eggs I had just gotten in the early morning! Sooo now I'm stuck getting more eggs and I pray the next time he gets an inkling to cook that I'm paying more attention to what he's doing. I was trying to wake up his daddy while he was "cookin"! Ugh what a mess that was! Well I hope everybody has a good week and thanks to all who have written on my blogs!

Well february was certainly a stinker, for the lack of a better word for it. Between the fridgid temps and calamities we've had around here, its a wonder I'm still here. My goal was to cut down my texting to my one friend....acomplished! She has gotten the hint after many times trying to tell her, in her mind it relaxes her by stressing someone who is already stressed to the max out. Which to me doesn't seem fair or right. March has certainly started off where february left off! Yesterday, I had to have the furnace repairman out to fix our inside propane furnace. It wasn't firing right...come to find out it had about a foots worth of ice in the tubing from under the house into it. From the condensation of the propane trying to get into the line, it formed ice and as it warmed up pushed the water into the furnace itself. Sooo causing it to misfire and be a problem. Then there's the little matter of our tub waterline freezing. That has just freed up from 3 days of being plugged. Then there's the next matter of my sister being back in the hospital for this week. Same symptoms, all he did this time, was adjust the flow to her shunt and wait to see if it needed a revision. She's due to be home tomorrow...if things don't change between now and then. Other then all these calamities, things have been ok. Some of my friends asked me why I'm stressed, you got about an hours time to listen? Oh my these last few months have been brutal...praying life will get better soon. I don't know how much more I can handle seriously! My insides have turned upside down, eating habits have faultered, and my nerves so very frazzled. One thing I've got to look forward to is april 5th I've scheduled a back massage, a pleasure I haven't taken part in all winter long and am badly overdue just to be pampered a little. I think I'm due for it....id like to get my hair cut as well, but that will need to wait some. Well thanks for listening to my ramblings....what's ahead? Not sure yet. Whatever is thrown at me I guess. Here's to a good one...maybe?!

The robins are singing, skunks are confused, the bunnies are hopping, and I saw a dead ground hog this morning on the road 1st of the season.
My kids bus driver has been mia for about 3 weeks now. I hope he gets back from florida soon, I'm getting tired of being stressed out about my kids bus trip. I never worry when they're regular driver has them. He's an exmarine who doesn't let anything happen to them. I've come to respect him and adopt him as a "dad" figure for my kids. Besides that they love him. Lifes just not the same without him. But anyway, I wish spring would hurry up and get here! I need a vacation from my world a day to say..."take it easy, kick your feet up, ill take over for you" its not going to happen. My husbands stress is boiling over onto me and I don't have any idea how to help him. My world seems as though its crumbling into oblivion really. My mom thinks something bad is going to happen because my brother and sister in law have moved in, same as my other brother did before dad passed. Don't know how to help her either. Any words of advise? I don't know how to help myself, how can I help anyone else? Well other then that, my lifes in the potty right now and I'm afraid somebodys gonna flush it soon and the rest of what I've got left in strength and patience is going down the drain!

These last couple of days has been very painful. I've had such a headache along with a very achy back doing things has been difficult to say the least. I try not to complain but man this weathers been rough, had to haul extra wood over because of it. Ugh I'm soooo sick of it its not funny. I guess were in for another month worth of temps that aren't going to be very high for march. Which means more work for me as usual. My husbands been mia for the last couple of days or atleast a little less around. He's been sleeping till almost 4pm then out the door till the next morning. I've felt very neglected and lonely and like I'm a single parent again. I'm always being left to answer the question why isn't daddy home or where's daddy? It hurts so badly when I hear it because they want him around, but can't have him here. Its really sad because they need him, and so do I. It doesn't seem to register in his brain that lifes not the same. He hasn't left me, he's just getting too busy again for us all. I don't know what to tell them when they ask about him. I get aggrivated when everybody says oh he's so tired, yeah I know, but no one seems to care about how tired I am, or how I feel about the situation. I'm tired of the excuses and want to ring his neck. Tired of the consstant fights between the boys, playing mediator constantly, or referee basically. I'm tired of lugging wood, keeping the furnace going, always having so much to do with little help. But on the up side of things, my mil gave me a huge compliment yesterday when I told her at 6 I was getting baths done, she says, "boy you really keep a tight schedule don't you?, when our kids were young they often missed the bus because they weren't ready". That means a lot to me because my dad was army, we were like his drill team really. Guess I'm trying to do the same with my boys. Even though last night was easier because there wasn't any homework for my middle son to complete. Gave me some leway in my "schedule". I never realized how scheduled I am until last night. I get thrown a curve by adding or subtracting something and I'm lost. So I guess that's a good thing but then I feel in a rut every so often also. Oh well, life goes on as crazy as it may be. Hope everybody has a good day, I'm gonna try anyway!

Hopefully within the next week my tell tale sounds of the redwings will be back! I ache to hear them in the winter and dream of it somedays until they're here finally! They're due back sometime next week, let's just hope they don't wait much longer. On the unfortunate side of it is that the weathers going to turn sour again and hit below zero....but I've got my little promises to hold fast to that tell me its almost time, just a little bit longer I've gotta wait!
Atleast I'm not dumb enough to be doin this! How crazy is that?! My brother and his family are now living with my mom and my sisters back on her feet and doing better. Its just gonna take some doing to get her back to "normal" again. Hope everybody has a good rest of what's left of your weekend! Yeah its almost spring!
