I am not sure what is up with me, but I am so sleepy in the mornings lately. I get up at 6:20 to get the kids off to school. When they leave (by 8:00), I go back to bed. I usually read a little bit, but eventually I fall back to sleep. Yesterday I slept until NOON!!!! Today I *made myself* get up at 10:30. I hate being tired. I feel so lazy.

I've been lazy today, though, that's for sure. I've done very little, but read blogs and take care of my dogs.

Jake had a half day today, so he and his buddies from next door have been playing. Luckily they have been playing outside as opposed to the usual which is playing in our house. (I don't know what it is about our house, but oh well...). I was enjoying the peace and quiet until Jake yelled at me from the door....

"Mom, we have a problem!"

Ugh. Words no mother likes to hear.

I run outside and THIS is what I found.



















Yeah...small problem. Those are balls...about 6 maybe? All stuck up in the gutter of our roof--way up high!












My question to the boys was...."WHY??" I mean, I understand ONE ball getting stuck up there...then maybe throwing another ball up to try to knock the first ball down maybe...but SIX???? At some point around the 2nd or 3rd ball wouldn't one think that maybe, just maybe this plan isn't quite working?!
Ugh.
Richard is NOT going to be happy. I have a ladder, but I am not about to climb up it as I am terrified of heights. As much as I'd love to protect my youngest child from the wrath of his stepdad, I just can't do it.

Jake has a football scrimmage tonight, then no school tomorrow for my kiddos. I will be going to a parent-teacher conference with Jake's teacher tomorrow morning at 8:40. After that, I might take Carly to buy a new outfit as she is going a bar mitzvah this weekend.

Hope everyone is doing well. I'm really enjoying getting to know you all through your blogs.
