I'm Back - Sort of.

Our computer overheated. So we let it rest for awhile. When we tried to restart it, it sparked. So we have a new one on the way, and have finally managed to get my laptop to stay connected to the web. I'll catch up soon, both on your lives and mine.

While I was away, I learned/really learned a couple of things.

I adore my children, and now that I've accepted that they are driving me crazy I can see my way to becoming sane again. So thank you for all of your support, encouragement and love.
Here are three parts to my plan:
- housecleaner (two candidates sound like good possibilities, one afternoon per week, very reasonable)
- yoga
- cutting back on caffeine (again)
but here's the thing: heavy drinking might be safer for you.

I also discovered something else: my children behave perfectly (no screaming in the car! no tantrums at bedtime!) when we stay at their grandparents. So from now on, perhaps we'll spend every weekend with their grandparents.

Why yes they do.

I think all kids like to drive us crazy from time to time. :) Glad to hear that you're hiring a housecleaner. We've hired a few from time to time and it's well worth the money!

I think spending every weekend with the grandparents is an excellent idea! ;)
