"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Out Of Whack


When our daily schedule gets out of whack, we are all out of whack. Yesterday we spend a wonderful Sabbath with Grandma and Grandpa and enjoyed church at Pacific Church of God. The drive for us, one way, is 3 hours. By the time we got home last night, all the little people (and the big, if would just admit it) were tired and crabby. We had a small dinner, and then bed time.

Andrew is working on his last baby teeth and has been crabby the last couple days. Last night was awful. He was up a lot (every 45mins about) wanting his mama. I was out of teething pain relief, so I just had to cuddle him lots. Aaron slept great and it was a good thing too, he got a call at about 6am, just before the kids got up. Andrew was in bed with me, when Clara came in and told me it was day time and I "had" to get up. Silly girl. With in a matter of a couple minutes, Flora was awake. Into the living room we go and cuddled on the couch until Daddy got home at a bit after 8. Back to bed I went for another hour.

The kids are all a bit crabby today, and Clara is even taking a nap. She must be tired, since she doesn't nap at all these days.

Flora, orney streak out in full force, is driving her brother nuts. He just wants to be left alone.

On day like this, when I have not had enough sleep, and it doesnt matter how much coffee I have, and just can't get going or into anything. These days seem to be the ones I have packed full of to-do's!

This next week is going to be crazy busy for us, and all out of whack. Tomorrow we are butchering the meat birds. Then Tues-Thurs Aaron is going to be at classes all day. I am planning on getting some sewing done while he is gone. Still, nothing will be normal.

What are some of your tips for helping little's when your schedule is all out of whack?
