Ammon and glue

So life has been crazy around here. But what do ya expect with a name like that? My wonderful darling Ammon, what will I do with you? On Friday, Ammon's teacher called me from school and asked that I come pick him up. He had so nicely smeared glue all over his desk and on himself. This comes after he spent Monday at home, suspended from school(for stabbing a kid in the back with a pencil), yes again. This is now the third time in his 1+ years of schooling. Well when he got home he had glue in his hair, up to his elbows and some on his shirt. He wanted to make plastic. Where does he come up with these ideas? Who could do something like this except my Ammon. Not only did he smear the glue on Friday, but he also colored on the teachers bookshelf, just cause he wanted to.

Why is that the answer for everything, not just Ammon but all my children, is "cause". Cause I wanted to. Why would they want to do some of the things they do? Where did my children learn these things? I really am going crazy.

So we're going to be redoing our roof this weekend. The master bedroom sprung a leak last winter and now we need to get the new roof on before we have snow again. What a pain. Not only do we have to redo the roof but when we're done with that we have to put my bedroom back together, see, when it leaked there was so much moisture in there that we got mold, so that had to be romoved and now we have to basically rebuild half of the walls and ceiling plus replace the carpet. Since we're using the insurance money to do the roof, the bedroom has to be done just little bits at a time. So I'm sure it's going to be next spring or summer before I'm back into My room and have some privacy.

Hooked on Twilight Series

So I finished the second(New Moon) and third(Eclipse) books in the series and I am now halfway through the fourth(Breaking Dawn) and final book in the Twilight series. Wow! Now I'm wishing that I had read them when my sister-in-law recommended them. But then again...I would have finished the first three and had to wait for the fourth one to be released, so maybe it's better this way. I guess Stephenie was going to write a fifth book called Midnight Sun but someone posted it on the internet and she's so upset about it(which she has a right to be) that she says she's not going to finish it. I think it would have been cool to hear the story from Edwards side. Too bad, some people just can't be trusted.

Okay, so I was quite skeptical when my sister-in-law told me that I should read the Twilight series a few months ago. Vampires just didn't interest me. So I had no intention of reading them. Friday night my husband sent me to the library for some books for him and I thought why not I'm here and haven't seen anything good to read lately I might as well at least look at it. So I checked it out and took it home. Well it sat on the counter for two days before I actually opened it and started reading. I was hooked, I couldn't get enough. I just finished it this evening, so I've been reading it every spare moment I got the last two days(which isn't much) and now that I've finished the first one and read the teaser first chapter of the second one in the back of the first one I can't wait to get my hands on it.

Eight-year old

I have this really stubborn eight year old that lately has been driving me crazy. It starts in the morning as soon as I wake him up from bed and it lasts until he's in bed asleep at night. He has been yelling at me all the time, he doesn't even talk to me in a normal voice, it is always yelling. Everything I say to him makes him "Angry". He did this because he was angry or that because he was angry. Last week he threw a glass bowl on the floor and busted it, this week-today actually-it was a window. He picked up the small plastic kiddy slide and threw it at a window. It is a double pane one and it only busted the outer one, so I'm glad that I don't have glass all over in my house but it is all over my porch.

I just don't know what to do with him anymore, he is only eight but he is almost as tall as me, and me being on the extra large size, when he runs away from me I can't chase him. He has no respect for me, none whatsoever. He even yells at me that he hates me. And since he yells it the other kids have started yelling it too.

What's a mother to do???
