I can't Sleep !


It's 3:00am and it's been a crazy, stressful day. I wasn't even going to post this evening, but for some reason I can't seem to sleep - my brain won't shut off. So here I am.

I found out this morning that Roy's negotiations with our landlord seems to have broken down, so it's looking like a move is in the near future. I've gone back and forth on how I feel about that and I've finally concluded that it doesn't matter how I feel, it's going to happen and I have to trust that all will work out. And it will.

Let's see, what else is new around here? Hmmmm . . .

Heather has been running a low grade temperature all day and feeling generally yucky so we took the day off.

Jacob came home from school, and announced that he wants to change his name to Rinaldo. Now why didn't I think of that when I was picking out baby names ? Sounds to me like he is thinking about running away with the circus. I hope that works out for him. I don't know where he comes up with this crap.
My kids are so strange.

When Jasmin was little, I used to tell her that if she didn't behave herself, I'd sell her to the Gypsies. Now that she has her own "demon daughter", she threatens Ana with the same fate. Recently, she took her kids to the Renaissance Festival where they had a Gypsy camp set up. As soon as Ana saw the camp and all the Gypsies dancing around the fire in their beautiful costumes, she gave Jasmin's sleeve a tug and said "Mom ! I wanna go with THEM !!! They're so cool !!!"
Sorry, it's late. That was just a random memory. Has nothing to do with what I was talking about.

What else . . . Jake and Heather instigated a food fight at dinner this evening. That was fun. They started tossing french fries into the air for the dogs to catch, it quickly escalated to "fry slaps", and after that, it's all a blur. I don't even care any more. It was fun, and the dogs REALLY enjoyed it.

Since Nick has been home, he's been working with Roy to earn some extra money. However, during income tax time, (now thru April) things are usually pretty slow for them. So this morning, (actually Tuesday am) Nick went down to a temp service and started working for a guy who is opening up a furniture store. So he spent today unloading the truck, and for the next couple of weeks, he'll be assembling and moving furniture for him. Nick is happy. He doesn't care what he does, he's just happy to work. He has always been that way, he can't stand to be bored, it's one of the things I really like about Nick.

Uh oh, the big old bear just wandered down stairs and gave me one of his looks that says he disapproves of me being up so late. He's been in bed since 9:30 pm. Maybe he's slept long enough for me to get a cuddle. Wish me luck, I'm going to give it a shot.

Good night all.
Love ya,

P.S. Mel - My blogger has been doing weird stuff all night too. Not the same things as yours, but it won't let me do certain things.

I think the thought of a food fight is divine right at the moment. However, I'm going to have to come over to your place as my Bella would have diarrhea for two weeks from "people food"; yet it seems a great stress reliever.

Hopefully all your family will get to feeling better in short order and that snuggle will be there waiting for you at the top of the stairs.
