It's madness right now

We disappeared again, but the reason is different this time.  The children have all gone mad.  Completely bonkers.  Attitudes, arguments, nitpicking, mess making, breaking things.  Did I mention arguing?  Oh my gosh, I want to run far away right now.

Plenty of cool fun stuff is happening too, but all the in-between crap is wearing me down.  I finally said, "You know, it takes two to argue and I'm done."  Only this didn't stop them from still coming at me, nor anyone else from going at it.

I have to admit I've been in a terrible mood for weeks now.  Ever since I got sick, I am just off and I can't get back to where I need to be.  We all got sick actually.  Everyone went through the cough, Geshtro has a never-ending runny nose, the girls keep complaining of sore throats.  This cold/allergies/whatever has really sucked the big one.

But I can't end this post on such a sour note.  Here are a some of the good things going on that I hope will bring us back "normal."  We are reading The Borrowers with the plan to see The Secret World of Arietty before it leaves the theater.  Geshtro made a video to go with one of his remixes and finally put it up on YouTube (linked below).  He's over the moon with how well it's been received.  He's working on a few more.  I'm so proud of him!  Dimples has a new habit of complimenting people everywhere we go.  Most people are completely taken aback and seem genuinely thrilled that someone would say something so nice to them.  Funny Girl is probably going through the hardest time right now, but she still amazes me every day with her wit and intelligence.  I really should try to find some time for just the two of us.
