This is the day. This is the day we are going to get some sort of schedule in this house. The kids are running amok. My brain is willy-nilly. We have been on holiday time so long that time is inconsequential, a non-factor a mere detail. Ryan asked what time it was yesterday and I actually said, “does it matter?” In retrospect that sounds a little catty, but I assure you it was said with a loving voice. The time really didn’t matter. The only time that has been consistent is the boys’ wake up time (which has NOTHING to do with actual world time) and the boys’ bedtime (which has more to do with when I get so fed up with the chaos that I put them to bed for some personal peace). The thing is that life just goes more smoothly when the kids know what we are doing and when. They act better. They act calmer. They act nicer. I act better. I act calmer. I act nicer. So, I am getting organized in a step toward world peace…
