Christmas Break with a side of nagging!

My monster in law was over. She is a neat freak and I am not! Nag, nag, nag. She was so bossy and drove me and hubby nuts. Also she does things for you and then makes you feel guilty after its like if you are going to do something for me, don't do it if it comes with a guilt trip. We spent 3 days cleaning the house before she arrived but it was not good enough for the lady that came out of the womb with a broom and a mop in her hand. Omgosh, she said she is not coming back again even though by our standards our house was immaculate when she was here Wish she could come for a good visit but nothing is good enough for her. She gave us money for Christmas though and I got a dirt devil and clothes so that was good. MIL and her kitchen assistant(me) also made a yummy Christmas dinner for us and my parents and 2 bros which I did appreciate and she also made a whole bunch of goodies and brought them down with her. YUM! So I guess it wasn't all bad.. We were going to have a get together for new years but I guess didn't give enough notice so went to my parents instead and monster in law was gone by then. We did talk though and didn't leave it on a bad note. She invited us for lunch after she left since she went to stay with another family friend and then we took her dog to the dog park where my boys chased the dogs and had an absolute blast. Who knew dog parks could be that much fun for kids. lol Then we went to the park then home.

Where did I go???

Well, If you read my last blog you know that I was diagnosed with tendinitis. I was resting my wrist for a while then last week was the week from HELL! Maybe it was puberty starting, I don't know. (Billy bob is starting to get zits so...) Billy bob was just tantruming over everything. Everything I told him to do even the simplest task it was on the floor with no, I cant or no, I don't wanna do that. He usually only has those tantrums in the morning cuz he doesn't want to go to school. He also had a very rough week at school. It took a long time to get him on task,he was tantruming quite a bit and he didn't do work for half the day sometimes. This is not like him, usually he has a rough start then the rest of the day is alright. Of coarse friday was a pro-D day. I really dont like pro-d days. They just make a longer weekend and the boys fight because they around each other 24/7 and hubby gets stressed out with the boys. By Friday I was at the Dr's telling him about it and got his meds increased. That is what he needed the last time he started acting out like that. It must have kicked in pretty good because he didn't even have tantrums in the morning on mon-wed. Minor tantrums thurs and fri morning though. Oh, well, cant have a perfect week lol. Oh,btw I just wait out his tantrums and when he is done he is told ok, now go down to the storage room and get the can of mushroom soup, I dont let him off the hook just because he throws a big tantrum.
Also I have taken up crafts again which I am really loving. I am making medicine bags and I burned a wolf in the aboriginal(I hope that is the politically correct word lol) style onto a peice of leather which I think I will make into a dreamcatcher. I am not aboriginal but I have always been facinated with their arts and crafts and culture. My kids are finally old enough that they are not running away with my supplies and constantly bugging. Even if the kids are around I can sit on the couch with them and sew and It still feels like me time!
