Happy imp.

In another hour or so, I'll be packing a backpack for him, and then he'll be going with Daddy to the halfway point between our house and Grandma & Grandpa's house to meet Grandma and Grandpa.  He gets to spend tonight and tomorrow night there, and then we'll go get him on Thursday. 

Happy HH--we're going to have someone coming today to give an estimate on how much it'll cost to replace the tub and faucet in our hall bathroom (the one the kids use).  I'm pretty sure it's beyond repair.  When the tax refund comes in, that's the top of the priority list. 

Unhappy pixie.  She's not going with the imp, and she's been testing her boundaries which brings the wrath of Mama down on her head with every tantrum.  She threw a jumping, stomping, screaming tantrum yesterday, right next to me, over the fact that I was answering student questions and wouldn't let her up in my lap.  The imp went "Uh-oh," and put both hands over his mouth.

Do you know just how hard it is not to start laughing when one child does something that the other child knows is going to bring a butt-spanking, and the other child reacts like that?  I thought my ribs were going to break, trying to suppress it.  Because that really would have sent a mixed message--laughing while spanking the pixie. 

Odysseus is going to be working tonight.  He'll be off on Wednesday and Thursday, and Saturday for the next two weeks.  We're looking forward to him having two days in a row off.
