Fox does have a Reality Remix station on the satellite so I am currently watching last year's Idol on that. It's REALLY fun to watch when you KNOW who it going to win! LOL I did this last year as well - they had it as a nightly marathon (2-3 episodes in a row) leading up to the new season. This year they are doing 1-2 nights with only one episode. I missed them this week. However, J helped me watch part of last night's that I missed! LOL How you might ask?
I was doing a last check on the boys before heading off to bed. It was about 11:45 (after kitchen clean-up, reading - it was late) when I heard J crying in his bed. He doesn't feel great right now. He has a very nasty sounding cough. He didn't want to settle back down & he had woken up N (who just wanted a drink & to go potty) so I brought J in to bed with my dh & I. That lasted about 10 minutes. LOL We then went out to the couch together & I realized I had missed Idol earlier in the day. It was on again from midnight to 1am. I started it. I fell asleep. J didn't. I woke up at 1am & put him back to bed. He asked me to sing a song & then he finally went to sleep. I headed back to bed.
My 10 year old came running in around 4am as he'd had a bad dream. I got him calmed down & found out he had dreamed a monster had chased him down our hallway & caught him. We went out to the living room & I turned on the hallway light to show him it was okay. He decided to sleep on the couch anyway. I went back to bed.
J came in to my room around 6-6:30 am this morning & climbed in to bed with me. I stumbled out to the couch to catnap away the morning which I did. My hubby called me at 9:15 to see if I was awake. I wasn't. I FINALLY dragged myself off the couch around 9:45 & ate brunch - since it can't be called breakfast that late in the morning - & took a shower. It was about 10:30 before I felt normal. I don't like mornings like this.
Obviously we have done NO school today. I may try some table work after B gets back from his daily walk for the mail. Although, I'm seriously considering taking off the next two days & focusing on house stuff & chores I need to get done. Some are school related (like working on my SWR learning log
Our church is also having a baby shower on Saturday. It's for a friend & homeschooling Mom's older daughter. I making two no-sew fleece blankets. One for the baby & one for her 3-year-old daughter. They are quick to do but I need to cut & tie them. I may bring it all with me tonight (Awana night) & find an empty spot at the church to cut them & work on that while J plays.
I have my lunch cooking (frozen pizza) & the boys have all eaten. J is down for a nap now which he did NOT want to take AT ALL! We have our AWANA marathon this afternoon - our last Christmas rehearsal & Awana all in one night so that won't make for such a long afternoon/evening next week. Christmas rehearsal moves to Sunday afternoons this Sunday. I think that will work better though.
Yeah, I just re-read this post. It's kind of rambling. Sorry! I guess I'm still tired...............zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...........
