Tuesday Again...

   It's Tuesday, here in the land of chaoticness somehow resembling something that once was considered to be my life. I'm at my mom's house, as per usual for this time of day midweek. I mowed half of her front yard this morning, before the mower died. The electric mower doesn't like it when the grass gets this tall. But she'll still do her work, just takes a bit longer and she has to be treated nicely. So I'm waiting for her to recharge now.
   Took Odie to school this morning, gas is at $3.49, which really sucks. It means the $40-45 a week I was paying to take him to school is now more like $50-60 a week, an extra ten bucks we really don't have. But oh well, we're gonna make it work, just like everything else.
   This last weekend was visitation for B and Odie, and it's been hell since they came back. B's stomach hurt really bad all day yesterday, so I was having to force her to eat. It hurt so bad from not eating enough during the weekend, again. You'd think someone would catch on eventually. She also had that prissy attitude that's inevitable the day of her return. That only takes 24 hours to break with her though... Odie, however, is a whole different issue. Yesterday, he was back to wetting his pants, outright ignoring me, and refusing to do anything he was asked to do. We spent hours trying to work with him, and unfortunately, today is proving to be a repeat, aside from the time he was in school. Thankfully, he has always done well in school, and is at the top of his class for behavior and top of the boys' for academics. I'm hoping that doesn't change...
   KiKi finally figured out that he can climb out of his crib, which means we have to get him a new bed soon (if he climbs out again anytime soon). We're hoping that he decides to stay in a bit longer, which is an even shot considering how much he scared himself. He wasn't trying to get out, he was trying to pull a toy from outside into his crib... He has been expanding his diet a lot lately, which is very good. We still have to grind up everything, but we've gotten used to that part of life... He's trying to run now, which comes out as a very fast walk. But it's awesome progress! :)
   ZoKo was allowed back on her computer yesterday. She hadn't been on it in a few months. The games she was playing were all educational, and she managed to rack up 4 hours of schooling throughout the course of the day, while playing games... No, I don't let her normally play for that long. But I had my hands full between other chores, projects, and dealing with Odie. And B was watching her and took a few turns, so it kept both girls occupied for the majority of the day... Typically, they're allowed on the computer for more like half an hour, 1-2 times a week...
   Time for lunch, and I'm out of things to say of a semi-positive nature, so I'm closing this out. I will be posting again shortly, in order to reveal some changes to the labels index on here, and to discuss things that normally are not to be discussed according to the wonderful stipulations of our beloved society... ...anyone else sense a little sarcasm there? no? good, it's just me then... love ya :P
