Can I just tell you that this morning feels weird and strange to me....I can't put my finger on what it is. Maybe it's because all of the kids were up by 6:30. (can I say that I'm especially not looking forward to the end of daylight savings time if the kids are already waking before the crack of dawn) I dreamed so many dreams last night that I don't feel like I got a bit of sleep. One involved being awakened by the garbage collector - meaning he came to my bed and shook me awake - to tell me that I was behind payment for my garbage and I had to go downtown with him to pay the bill at this moment. I had to leave my sleeping children alone in the house while I went to town to pay my bill and I thankfully made it back before they woke up. In my dream while the garbage man was taking me downtown I totally said, "I'm am so going to blog about this!" And here I am blogging about me wanting to blog about the terrible treatment I received from a municipal employer in my dream....kind of pathetic.

I think it was also just a strange weekend of a lot of uncoordinated efforts that went bad. A frustrating weekend and here I am trying to start another week when I feel like I never "rested" on the weekend...I need to stop complaining and just get on with it - maybe I need to send my kids to their room for awhile in order to be able to get my mind right to start the day/week.

And can I just tell you something completely unrelated right now. I went to fix my kids breakfast this morning - good ol' peanut butter and honey toast - and out of sheer boredom I grabbed the jar of peanut butter (it's a new brand, the new packaging distracted me) and I actually read these words on the side of the peanut butter jar - Allergin warning: contains peanuts. I mean seriously, come on people, are we that stupid and irresponsible in America these days that manufacturers feel the need to warn the public that their peanut butter contains peanuts?? Kind of goes with my frustrating, ridiculous weekend...come on everyone - join me - let's get a grip and just figure things out! Let's revolt against stupid labeling, uncoordinated efforts, ridiculous dreaming concerning garbage collection agencies and children that feel the need to pester their mother from 6 in the morning until 9 at night!!! Who's with me??

Oh, Friend! It's the little things in life that keep us mildy insane! :)
My kids are making me nuts today, too. Did you know it's a full moon tonight?

Amen... peanut butter has peanuts. Come on!

And how in the world did all these kids get allergic to peanuts anyway? What is in our environment that caused it? In my days at school, we never ever cared anything about peanuts or things containing it. So where were the allergic kids then?

Ok, I might be severely overtired!
