I can't hear you over the jackhammer in my head

What do you get when you cross:

A headache infested Mom

A grounded moody 11 year old

A clingy whiney 6 year old

And a husband gone for the entire day?

A miserable Mommy.

Today has been a rough day, for all parties involved. My head has been SCREAMING since about 4, and Hubby has been gone at his brothers all day. Normally, not a huge deal. But when you through in the 11 and 6 year old, it gets interesting.

Hunter is doing time for his crime (homework, grrrr) and LORD KNOWS what is going on with Boo today. Both are in rare form, and not all that pleasant to be around. So what did Mom do?

Banishment!

Boo took some quiet time watching a movie and laying down. Hunter, well that was a bit more fun (for me at least). He cleaned, doing two of his chores for the weekend back to back. He, for some strange reason, is not a fan of me. Not quite sure why...lol

After dinner, quiet time continued, until Wizard of Oz got a little too scary for Boo. Hunter finished his chores in record time (and not in the fast way) and went to bed. Boo finished the movie, while laying on her pained mother and crashed for the night. Quiet has come...and I am so glad.

I am going to listen to some tunes, finally got some new songs, and then crash. I need sleep, especially since Boo has a friend coming over tomorrow. That is always such a blast (see Brooke, not sarcastic at all).

Man....there is just no better feeling than going to bed at the end of a less-than-stellar day!! I hope tomorrow is better!
