I'm so tired, Oh so tired...

I think the title says it all; I'm exhausted! What a day it's been. At 5:30 this morning I got a call from Preston's school, one of those automated messages. It started off "This is a message from the Comal ISD" Well, I am forever running low on Preston's lunch money account because I never remember that he's getting low on funds. So I'm forever getting an automated call reminding me to add some mula. When I heard the message I was pretty p'od thinking it was a lunch money call at 5:30. I almost hung up but the automated lady started talking more and come to find out it was the district letting us know school was cancelled till Monday because of the swine flu. Good think I listened. I would have been more mad about driving Preston to school when he didn't have it than waking up at 5:30 for a phone call. So I get in bed and turn my alarm off, happy that I can sleep in a little. I start to doze off and 30 minutes later my phone is ringing again. This time it's Tana, my good friend, calling to tell me Preston doesn't have school. She's always up at a time that should be illegal so I'm sure she was watching the news and knew I sleep in till the last possible second and probably wouldn't have known if the school hadn't called. So I get off the phone and go back to sleep, fantasizing about sleeping in. I probably slept for an hour before Preston comes and hops in my bed and informs me that he is late for school. I told him he wouldn't be going to school and he thought that was the coolest thing. Needless to say I never got back to sleep. Come to find out he will actually be out of school until May 11th - 8 whole days! It's nice to have him home with me.

It was a long day though because when he's home there is more fighting so when Grace just so happend to run out of diapers tonight I was more than happy to get out of the house and make that run to the store. Then I come home and the realize, the genius that I am, that I had purchased a lot of things on my trip to target (some really cute yoga pants on sale for $3.24) but diapers was not one of them. So I go in the bedroom to tell Troy my big oops and he says "you'll never believe what happend when I called my parents tonight" I was really wondering what it was because he's laughing pretty hard as he's saying that. Well apparently my dear, sweet little girl Bellarose got on the phone with her Grandma Bonnie and went to the corner of the room and told her "my mommy doesn't think your pretty and she says your witch" and who knows what else because at that time she moved further away from Troy into our closet so he couldn't hear her. He got onto her for fibbing but still couldn't help but laugh. I felt horrible because I'm hoping my MIL doesn't actually think I said those things. Now I've got to head back out to get those diapers I forgot. Well, I don't feel like driving all the way back to Target so I decide to go to the closet gas station. Luckily they have diapers but it was a mini pack of 10. I happily told the clerk I'd take them and then nearly had a heart attack when he told me they were $10.00. That's more expensive than the full size pack at Target and I'm only getting 10. I had no choice though because Target had already closed and I wasn't going to drive all over town to go get the diapers. So that was my exciting day.

The next few days will be busy because I'm trying to get ready for Preston's Birthday party Saturday. Hard to beleive my baby's going to be 6 already. Anyways, Good Night!!

Anyhow, this blog is really for my in laws. I told them I'd post a few videos of our house and the kids so, Mom and Dad, here it is. Enjoy!!!!
