A whole week already...

Last Sunday was back to work and now here we are a whole week later... Sunday I went to work, 6am-2pm... It was an easy ad set, stocked the sale tables, went to lunch and opened boxes... Came home, don't remember what we had for dinner, hmmmm, we watched the second Harry Potter... We are watching them again getting ready for the new movie coming out this year... and then it was get the boys to bed as they were back to school on Monday...

Monday was hubby's day off... we were all up early... son2 called us from the bus stop that son1 had text him asking to do laundry after work... hubby said yes... I said what time is after work... I got son3 off to school and went off to work myself, 9:30-4:30... I just opened boxes all day getting caught up from when I was on vacation... I got home at 5, hubby and son3 were still doing homework... Monday's spelling words: stood, nervous, dangerous, simple, laughing... Hubby had put a lasagna in the oven... I told son2 to text son1 that the lasagna would be done at 6pm and what time was after work... son1 text back that he was getting off in fifteen minutes and would be over by 6pm... We ate at 6:30pm, son1 arrived at 7pm... he was having a bad day... woke in the morning at 6am to his car alarm going off, his car was being towed, since it was too close to a fire hydrant but everyone parks there... so pay the tow driver and get his car off the truck... After leaving work he got a fix it ticket since the officer felt his muffler was too load, yes he has it modified to his liking, however he said he had been stopped before and that officer had checked everything and found it to be legal, so don't know why this officer disagreed... he then went home to take a shower and get his laundry and then to our house... also found out he quit his job on Friday with no notice to employer and took a full time job with his part time job with more pay... so he was coming from his new job in the next city over... asked how and he and girlfriend were doing... mumbled answer... he only had three loads of laundry to do but the dryer was still running at midnight... son3 had been asleep for hours, son2 refused to go to bed til his brother left, hubby was falling asleep on the couch, son1 was asleep on the couch... I finally sent hubby and son2 to bed and told son1 just to spend the night... he had to let girlfriend know... and then I went to bed....

Tuesday morning I'm up with hubby, get him and son2 off to work and school, get me ready for work, get son3 up, fed and dressed for school and then finally get son1 up twenty minutes before we have to leave... he has breakfast, finishes his laundry from the dryer and we are all out the door at 8:20am... He gets a call from one of his new co workers that they need a ride, they live all the way in the foothills... He had to be at work at 10am... Hope he made it on time... I work from 9:30am-4:30pm... Finish opening all the boxes and stock women's athletics... I get home at 5pm, hubby is still doing homework... spelling words: wrote, delightful, answer, traveled, interesting... We have left over lasagna for dinner and watch Castle, Reaper and Fringe... and go to bed early...

Wednesday is my day off... Get everyone off to work and school and spend the morning on the computer... It was about 96 degrees that day... I did not even wanna cook dinner so I sent hubby to Taco Bell when he got home... It was my day to do homework and we were done before hubby got home... Spelling words: Dodgers, Broncos, Forty Niners, Falcons, C.S.U. Fresno Bulldogs, White Sox... We had to make sentences with these words... they are not even allowed to wear team shirts to school... What the heck kind of spelling words are these... We watched The Secret of the Magic Gourd... had a good lesson in the movie but was a Japanese movie adapted by Disney with dubbed English... Boys to bed and hubby and I watched Criminal Minds...

Thursday got hubby and son2 off to work and school, got me ready for work and son3 off to school... I worked 9am-5pm... I scanned the reports for mens and athletic shoes, stocked the shoe accessories, opened all the boxes that came in on Wednesday, went to lunch and rearranged the stockroom... Got home at 5:45pm, homework was done and son2 was sulking in a chair from he and hubby having a heated discussion about cheerleading... Thursday was the information meeting to get the DVD of the routine for tryouts... Hubby did not take him... Son2 is not accepting our no cheerleading and desperately trying to persuade us to yes but not listening to our reasoning nor showing us the requirements that we requested of him to show that he really wants to do cheerleading, not just 'wanting' and 'it would be fun'... I thought he had calmed down so I asked a question that got he and I in a heated discussion, then we had Easter egg salad sandwiches, soup and cheese pizza for dinner and watched Smallville and Supernatural...

Friday off to work and school... Do you see a pattern here... I worked 9am-5pm... I stocked and stocked all day long between men's boots and athletics and then toward the end of the day organized the stockroom a bit more... no new boxes had come to open yet... we are caught up... Got home at 5:30pm, egg salad sandwiches again... and we watched Bones, CSI, Harper's Island... recorded Ghost Whisperer, Dollhouse and Numbers... and went to bed early...

Today is Saturday... Hubby went in late today... So we got to sleep in til 8am.... I made scrambled eggs, kielbasa and muffins... Then we made the mistake of bringing up cheerleading again and then that went back and forth between upset and discussion for three hours til hubby had to go to work... But I think we may have made some breakthroughs with son2... some actual understanding on his part... of why we are saying no, there are a ton of reasons... but that he wants us to understand that he is not going to let it go... fine, but we need to see the desire and not just the want... So got hubby off to work at noon, son3 on his games and me in the shower... son2 had three invitations from three friends today and was getting the details so he could make a plan... He decided not to go to a bday party, we said it was not in his best interest to be the third wheel and go out with his two friends that are dating, so he opted for the first invite and is spending the night at his friend A's... of course that was not til 4pm... So I did a couple of quick chores and started watching The Secret Life of Bees with son2 while he is waiting for it to be time to take him... It is now 6:15pm, hubby will be home soon and I have gotten nothing done today... and I work about 40hrs next week... I just can't seem to balance my time between work, home, boys, computer, TV and me... Is that too much, lol... of course if I gave up computer, TV and eating... the house would be immaculate and I would be skinny... no....
Happy Journaling...

You're turning into me writing a week at a time.
I been wanting to buy the HPseries and save it for when Kyan gets older. I've not watched any of them. You know me when I get started I have to watch the whole thing in order.
Wow everyone's party is over now back to work and school.
Awww yes older children. That is how laundry happens around here too. Everyone wants to wash and dry until wee hours. In our case, there is no excuse for not doing it during the daytime school lets out at 2pm. Well at least son1 had a job to go to. Hope that works for him. Sorry to hear him and gf are still whatever.
Dontcha just love cops like that. Same thing happened to Kaitlin but for another reason. No other cop ever said a word to her except for one Ahole.
Tuesday fun never ends just a new day. I'm up on Fringe behind on Castle.
96! Wow. Usually when it's hot like that we grill. Cooking gets done outside the house, but with that heat don't blame you on the to go food.
Okay I've missed it son2 wants to join cheerleading? since when. I guess I should start back and work forward things would make more sense that way, but I have to be difficult. So everyone is fighting over this. Umm wonder who will win.
Yes I see the pattern..you robot. Harper's was good. I watch GW. I have all the Dollhouses, but have yet to watch because I haven't seen the first show uh me and my have to watch in a row.
Secret Life of Bees is a good movie. Glad you took time to write.
Hope you all have a great Sunday.

I don't think I could do a whole week at a time. I wouldn't be able to remember all of the things that I did,,much less which day it was..lol..
I hope working full time at one place works better for son1 than working two seperate ones..
Hope you get to relax today..
Hugs, Sheri

Love the music on your journal Linda... I am playing catch up and have been way behind in journaling lately. Wow what a week. LOL I had to laugh about the spelling words on day three or four was it.... what kind of spelling words are these LOL... and at the end where we would be skinny if we did not journal and the house would be immaculate. I say amen and amen to that LOL! I need to get moving today too but having too much fun catching up on blogs.
