tummeh ache.

I am sitting here with a raging tummy ache... I kind of just want to go to bed (even though it's not even 8pm yet) but it's my tv night and I want to watch True Blood. So I'll wait.

Nolan is up right now... last night we made him go to bed first, as for the past several nights when we put the knuckleheads to bed, shenanigans ensue and someone ends up hurt. Usually Sethy. One night Nolan bit him (not hard enough to leave a mark, but still.) and then the next night he kicked him in the eye. Which is kind of odd considering that they are in bunk beds, it is bedtime, and thus, they should be SLEEPING DAMMIT. This is of course interspersed with various and sundry trips to the bathroom, trips out to the living room to ask us a question ("um, is it...... Tuesday today?"), trips out to the living room to tell on each other ("Nolan called me a baby"). Last night we were DONE. And pulled Seth out and made Nolan go to bed first. I don't envision having to keep doing this too much longer; Nolan starts school on Thursday, he should be good and tired once that begins.

Speaking of which... first grade. Damn. I'm excited for him, as I believe he'll be in with the same teacher as last year, she is moving to first grade with her students. She was awesome and he did so well, I'm just really excited for him to go back. I think he's feeling a bit nervous, as he's been acting out a bit more than usual. Talking back and the like. He did this at the end of the school year, and I didn't really recognize it until weeks after.

September is going to be... busy.

I am finally sitting down after spending the last two hours on my feet... peeling, chopping and slicing veggies for snacks for the week, preparing dinner for tommorrow night Hawaiian Chicken with Coconut Rice... then spilling about 1/3 of the marinade all over the counter, cleaning that up and then doing some laundry... lather, rinse repeat.

This is after I spent a lot of time on my feet helping throw a bridal shower for one of my oldest and dear friends. It was a great time, but I am feeling it now.

The point? Mah feets hurt.

On tap for this week... the boys have a dental appt on Tuesday, I am going to my first church choir practice on Wednesday, Thursday Nolan starts school, Friday night I am meeting up for more wedding prep with my girlfriends, Saturday morning I get to go back to the Seamstress to see if she was able to work any magic on my bridesmaid dress... THAT TOTALLY DOES NOT FIT. ACK. Saturday night we are having my nephew over to spend the night, Sunday looks like we'll be hitting the zoo... the next few weeks/weekends we have hair appointments, seamstress appointments, tux fittings, bachelorette parties, etc etc etc... oh and a 5 year old's birthday party to plan as well.

From now until 9/25 it's just going to be crazy busy and I need to deal. But I swear to God, the weekend after Sethy's birthday we are doing NOTHING.

anyhoo. I am going to go veg out to the VMAs now.
