Dare I Say It? WARNING: Vent Ahead


I'm sure you're wondering just how I can be bored being home with 6 kids on summer break?   I guess I have just fallen into a rut.

Get up, make the coffee, silently pray that the kids don't get up yet...drink the coffee, check email and Facebook...and then, the chaos begins.   Still, how can I be bored in the midst of chaos?  It's because just about every day is the same, I suppose.  

I feel like all I do is clean up sticky messes, referee fights and squabbles, do laundry, pick up toys, ...basically run around in circles trying to stay on top of things.  

Honestly, it's boring.

I try to plan things to do...things close to home and mostly free, but by the time it's all said and done, I am worn out by the bickering whining children, I'd just rather stay home, which only perpetuates the cycle of whining and squabbling children.   I just can't win for nuthin'.

I know, now I'm whining.

Only 53 more days till school starts.   Not that I'm counting.  Nope, not me.

Time to make the coffee...
