Wednesday

Here is what my Wednesday looks like this week -

Woke up with Johan next to me, and Gaute nowhere to be seen. When I fell asleep Gaute was next to me, and Johan was in his bed. I didn't remember any switcheroo during the night, but when I got up I saw Gaute in Johan's bed. Hmmm... Time to have a little chat with Johansen - that's the second night in a row he's come into our room at night - although when he doesn't wake me up, then it's not really such a big deal. :-)

While taking my shower I made the decision to blow off my religion class today. My excuse was that I was going to prioritize, and write a paper which is due on Friday instead. Which means that I have no excuse not to write the damn paper...

Espen woke up in a bad mood, which is unlike him. He hasn't gotten out of spring break mode, though, and doesn't go to bed until much too late. I told him that he was supposed to walk Anders home from school - which he does every Wednesday - and he threw a fit. Then I said that I wanted to take him out after school and buy him new football shoes. "Why do we have to do that today?? I want to play with my friends!" Then I got pissed off because he's been complaining constantly about his football shoes and how they're too small and too old, and bla bla bla. Then he refused to eat breakfast. Nice start...although he did manage to snap out of it and ate his food and admitted that he did want new shoes.

The two oldest left for school, and I told Johan that we could ride bikes to barnehage today - the weather is gorgeous! We rode over there - he wore his Lyn uniform to celebrate their victory on Monday - and I managed to drop him off without any major crisises.

I then sat down and managed to write a rough draft of the paper that I'm skipping school to write. I also vacuumed and washed clothes, so I was pretty proud of myself. When I realized what a good job I had done, then I lost all motivation to keep working on school/house stuff and decided to go shopping. I looked at lots of shoes, but ended up spending money only at the grocery store - although I spent more than enough there. I could buy lots of shoes if I stopped buying food...

While I've been writing this Espen and Anders have come home. They went straight out to the trampoline, though, and from the sound of it then Halvor is here, too. Soon I will have to go out and ruin their fun... Football shoe shopping time.

Tonight after dinner then the boys have to go up to the football field. They're taking team pictures, and they're all going to be on football teams this spring. Johan is especially excited. Then after that Gaute and I are going to a meeting at barnehage. Johan is going to camp next week for 3 days with his barnehage. Just the kids who are starting school are going. He's excited/nervous about it. The meeting tonight is to fill us in on what they need to take and what they'll be doing. Should be interesting...

Time to go bug my kids...

Looks like Johan is back to his old tricks. Clever little guy---He's realized that the key is to keep Mama from waking up. Hehehehehehe.
Sounds like things are busy......
I know what you mean about getting a bunch of work done and then feeling like you're off the hook. I do that all the time and I end up with everything halfway done and money spent! At least you only bought groceries. I would have bought shoes. Damn shoes.
We shouldn't have to choose between starvation or nasty shoes!!! Impeach Bush. Tookie lives.

I enjoyed this little "slice of life"! Life will be full of adventure [and drudgery!] with 3 little boys in the house! Love, Mom
