Drill Sgt Mom is in the house! Take Two (Day Two)

February 3, 2010

I am tired. Or at least I was yesterday. After about five hours sleep and a full day of things to do I was beat. I was still going to get up at 6 this morning, just to prove a point. But truth be told they were good yesterday, not really too much attitude at all. I mean AJ was not impressed with me yesterday morning but after she made a comment about — well let me show you how the conversation went;

Her: You are picking on me!
Me: Im not picking on you. You are the only one still throwing attitude at me.
Her: Well I just dont like being woken up at 6 in the morning
Me: Well I dont like disobedient and disrespectful children, so I guess we are even.
Her: *silence*

After that there was no problems. Truth be told they didnt hold onto their attitude at all. They were fine when I went to go see them at lunch time and after school they were on the ball and did what they had to do.

I wasnt in the mood to be mean. They learned their lesson. So I decided to write them a letter instead of waking them up. I tacked it to my bedroom door, and told Dad to let them know when they woke up that there was a message from Drill Sgt Mom.

The message read;

I am going to let you off early this time so long as you get yourselves moving. If you pull this again it will be there days and I will not be letting you off early.

Sincerely,

Drill Sgt Mom

Needless to say they got the point and were downstairs long before i was. I think I am going to leave that letter there on my door for now. As a reminder of DMWM 🙂
(Dont mess with Mom)

Me on the other hand despite being insanely tired I got a lot of things done yesterday. I wrote my usual quota and did a whole unit from back to front in school. Now I can get into this massive text book that got delivered earlier this week. Its about an inch and something thick and weighs a ton. I have to go through the whole thing. There must be something like 3000 or 4000 thousand math problems in it.

Oh! And I started working on a christmas gift the other day. I am going to write up the pattern for it. It is a checkerboard for one of my nephews. I thought I had made all of the blocks I needed but only ended up making half as many! HA! And I am supposed to be the accountant and I cant even figure out how many black and red squares are on a checkerboard. (For the record there are 32 red and 32 black).

Either way I sewed up the blocks I had already made and it is looking totally fabulous! I am hoping I will be done by the end of the week.

As for work. I went to my evening job last night. Was a wash. I am just not sure. I mean I am trying to get the appointments, but no one is biting. As for the bike shop. Welll I have to work this friday, which is not something I am looking forward to. I mean I am in the sense that I will get more money for it, but, who wants to be stuck with my boss after hours on a friday night when he wants to go out. Not me. But it has to be done.

The good news there is that I am almost done year end and the worst will soon be over. He doenst think that I am. Not sure what he thinks I am doing there, but he seems to think that I have this insurmountable pile of things to do, and that there isnt a chance in hell of my getting it done by the time out C.A. comes in on the 10th.

God the man has no faith in me what so ever. Thats half the problem of working there. But I do so love a challenge and my boss definitely classifies as that.

Ah well I have blathered on enough for one day. Time to stop hiding from the cat litter which needs to be changed today. *gag*
