Recovering from the weekend

What a weekend....I was exhausted!  Saturday went very well for the Ladies' Tea at church.  I enjoyed myself a lot and I was even pretty responsible when it came to my points.  I picked Oliver up in the afternoon and when I got him home he was unbelievably cranky!  He just threw fits and temper tantrums on the floor.  It was mentally draining since I didn't know what to do for him.  As best I could tell, he was just really tired.  Charlie was supposed to be home to help me but he ended up detained at a scout function for 4 hours instead of one.  When he did make it home I was exhausted and Oliver magically cheered up.  By then it was like an hour to bedtime.  At least he slept all night.

Sunday was another exhausting day.  I was trying to let Charlie rest from all the work he did for scouts on Saturday so I tried to take care of everything....laundry, cooking, dishes, cleaning.....I finally passed out on the bed after hours of running around.  In addition, I still have May DT projects to complete, Breezy's birthday favors, a birthday card for my sister and I have to buy her a gift....eek.  Not mention I'm glutton for punishment since I'm allowing Breezy to have six friends over to spend the night....six girls that I'm sure once they all get together it will turn into wild children.  I hope hope hope its nice outside Friday so they can run around out there for awhile and get some of their energy out.

I will have to say that I am SO PROUD of myself for what changes I made last week.  The laundry, even after getting through the weekend is still caught up, kitchen is still clean....this week is Zone 3, bathroom and extra room.  Since we have 3 bathrooms, I will have 2 bathrooms to clean plus it will include the kids bedrooms.  Thank goodness two of my kids are older and I can just supervise :)  Joey has already gotten a start on it for me.  The kids' bathroom is looking good!  Laundry is in the washer, dishwasher has been emptied, bed is made....I'm feeling good!

Tonight is weigh-in night.  It's probably not going to be good since I start TOM yesterday and am super bloated.  I would love even down .2....anything is better than up so we'll see what happens.
