All that and the kichen sink . . .

So, I have nothing to blog about. I suppose I could tell you that Dustin is doing well in school. He has been in school for 7 days and only has had one time that we received a call. He would not stop talking and would not stay seated. He would just wander aimlessly around the room. Oh and he tried to use the restroom 27 times in his 5 hours day. Serious. What did I say when they called and told me this? "Welcome to my world". They were not whining, they were just informing. I love the special education department at his school the teachers are pretty realistic (it's the para (aide) that has the issue with that) so we don't get too many behavioral reports anymore. Woot.

The two littles are enjoying he heck out of 1st and 3rd grade. They go to bed relatively easy and they get up well in the morning. Harrison struggles with going to sleep as always, but I have maxed out his Melatonin and he still gets up well so I don't push the issue much. Their ability to absorb information astounds me! They are both pretty voracious readers which makes me proud.

The husband is doing well. He struggles with sleep issues as well. (that's where Harrison gets it) But the last week or so has been really pretty good for him. I can sleep at a moments notice ANYWHERE on the planet. Robert cannot go to sleep to save his life. He is jealous of that ability. I can also have a full on conversation while sleeping, complete with questions and answers that make sense, all while seeming completely wide awake and I am SO NOT!! I have be known to spill secrets on occasion this way, so don't tell me any! Shhh!

My house is reaping the benefits of a particularly hardy run of OCD right now. I am patching walls, touching up paint, scrubbing, cleaning, repairing, and trashing clutter. I have no ideawhy it is hitting me so hard right now, but I am not really stressing about it I am going with the flow. Work has been particularly stressful, so maybe I am simply pooring some energy into the OCD pot and it is spilling out into my home. Projects are getting done and things are looking good, so I will not look a gift horse in the mouth at the moment. Rest assured if it gets much worse or it spills over into other parts of my life, I will get a handle on it.
