I now have all the grass up where the pool is going. I started working on getting the ground level... for about 10 mins. Then I heard this unreal screaming (Abbie) and lots of giggling (Andy). When I looked over to see what was going on, Andy's shorts were around his ankles and he was peeing on Abbie! THIS IS NOT GOOD! Most things I can deal with and not totally loose it. BUT peeing on your sister or brother is NOT going to happen and if it does, heaven help you! Andy was wishing for some of that help today! And I made him do the worst thing I could think of for peeing on his sister... He had to tell her he was sorry and that he would never do it again and then... are ya ready... I made him hug her neck and give her a...KISS! This just about did him in! It is so nice to know there is one thing, well 2 that I can get to him with! No TV is the other - but it was to long until bed time for that one to work.
Anyway, I am so tired! You would not think clearing a 13 foot circle of all the grass would take so long and be so tiring! I think the fact that it was 85/90 degrees out side played into it!
But I have to agree with the kids on this one, I am ready for the pool to be up! I want in it! I got a solar blanket to put on it but I am not sure I am going to need it right now!
So as of right now, I am hoping to get the pool up Monday. Mike will be here and he can finish the leveling up of the ground. Then we will have to fill it up. And get the wrinkles out, as best I can. So maybe Tuesday we can get in it and play. We shall see.
Gave the monkeys baths tonight. I thought that Abbie was really dirty. Nope - she is that tan. Got that from her daddy - Not me. I wish I tanned like she does. But for me to have a tan it takes LOTS & LOTS of work. I plan on doing some of that (in new pool). Maybe the monkeys will go to granny's for a couple of days!
Well my kitchen looks like all
h@$$ broke loose in there so I guess I need to get started on it. I don't even want to think about the clothes that need to be washed. Maybe I will think about that Monday, if I have time!
Night all!

Hot Summer - already!

After much thought I went and got the monkeys a pool with a filter. I am so tired of trying to wash all the slime out of the small pools. What I was not thinking about was that the ground where said pool will be going is anything but level! So for 4 hours this morning I worked on leveling up the ground. I might have 1/4 of the 12 1/2' circle that has to be leveled up. And that is a really big might! So for the next several days I will be working on this. To bad Mike is at work for the next few days or he could help! I am so glad that we decided not to get a big pool. I don't think I could have dealt with that! When I get it all level with in reason, I will be making pictures.
It has been for the most part pretty quite around here. I have been trying to get the monkeys out of the house as much as possible. We have not been doing a lot of loafing. The van is sick. We have had it worked on and it did no good. Alan is taking a shot at it, maybe tomorrow. I want my van fixed. It is much easier that the car with the monkeys. Maybe soon!!!!
Today has been a "fun" day. I was working in the yard - leveling for the pool. The kids were fighting. And fighting. And fighting. And when they got over their fighting they fought some more. It took me awhile to realize what the problem was. Last night they wanted to stay up and play, stupid me let them.
Let see, just the high lights from today:
*Andy & Levi throwing rocks (BIG rocks) up in the air over their heads and then running! I was on the phone with Alan when they did this, I started yelling for them to stop. Alan was horse laughing! He thinks it is funny they are into everything!
*Andy told Levi "Back up some, I am going to throw this rock at you". Yea, I was still on the phone with Alan. He liked this on also!
*Andy and Levi got in a fight in the bathroom over who was going to wash their hands first. This turned bad fast. They both came out of the bathroom with bite marks. Sorry to much fighting today. Sympathy is all gone!
*Andy came running into the dinning room and ran into the wall. His nose and the wall were not getting along and the wall won that one! He like to have never caught his breath. Then he cried for 15 mins. I know it hurt!
*Abbie went into Andy's room and picked up his walkie talkie. Andy did not like this so he leaned over and bit her on the hand. THEN the screaming started. And this girl can do some screaming!
It was like this on and off all day, mostly on! Needless to say, they went to bed at 7:00 to night. Abbie went to sleep before 7:30. The boys were awake later but they were in their beds resting. So I am hoping that tomorrow is a better day! Not sure I can take another one like today!
Well I am heading to bed now, got to get some rest just in cast they are not in a better mood tomorrow!
