shhh... I don't want to say this too loud (or type it loudly as the case may be) for fear that the children will discover us....but... Alex and I are creating a secret hiding space... one that the kids never have bothered with before.... a space in our house where- we are actually going to be able to GO to, WORK in and CREATE in... without stepping on those dear (*$#^!) little legos or getting tangeled in those darling (gosh-#@*% it!) little babydoll clothes that are strewn through out the entire REST of every surface of our home.
We have a secret door, behind a fireplace... and there's a room in there- and now it's becoming all ours (mwaaaa-haa-haa-haa!)
Also in todays news:
*Kat has strong inner struggle with wanting to pay bills vs. wanting to be at home with children ie: work and "is this really worth it?" and "how do I convey to my bosses that they really need to make this worth it?"
*Alex spends a glorious weekend in the Western part of the state at a "songwriting retreat", where he writes an amazing, heart touching song for his babydoll girl.
*Alex returns from said retreat, enters the house as if on a cloud; refreshed, renewed, rejuvinated... only to have wife (that's me) hand him children quickly and rush off to sanctuary of bedroom where she escapes from a single parented weekend full of puke, snot and fighting children who were puking and snotting. With fevers!
*Babydoll girl gets double ear infection
*Bigbug boy gets shag-nasty virus
*Babysitter quits causing much mayhem and pandemonium. (this is only a day and a half babysitter but STILL... how COULD SHE!)
stay tuned for more updates from the sick-puking-"I wanna be a SAHM again"- "soon to be on her OWN soul seaching SOLO retreat in the western part of the state" little mama and her squishy squashy, feverish little urchins (and don't forget Alex, the songwriting singer)
