Wednesday 2-1-06 and I am tired...

Mei Mei is cranky and Dallas is being hateful... he hates me and he hates kim. we are 'ruining his life' he says. what a way to start the teenage years. kim and i are losing sleep and getting cranky with each other due to all the stress coming from all sides. no one feels like the other is helping with anything. nice, huh? life is not bad. really. just challenging now! i'm sure that kim and myself were not difficult kids, were we? nah. just ask OUR parents! goodness. dallas has a friend that is 'pro school' and into studying so he is helping him bring his grades up! he is also into the outdoors so they are becoming good friends. we approve. Mei Mei has been moody lately but is that a reflection of our overall feelings at home in general? is she feeling the strain? wow. we are all working things out but the stress is def. there. big household. lots of responsibilities. different ages, sexes, backgrounds, etc. normal family life! who said that it would be easy? i'm not as patient as i once was and that is not good/helpful. i'm working on that. we've been through a lot in the past year and it's def. showing! we'll be fine, i promise. we all love each other very much and are all investing in our future together. what a trip! i wouldn't change a thing...

hey! love you guys and we miss you.

i was also really cranky the last month or so. it is a stressful transition and addition. but, things are getting better. i know the times now when i'm grumbling under my breath (usually at 3am) i will miss dearly when these guys are all growed up and off to change the world!! people - when it's winter we wish for summer. when it's summer we wish for winter. but i know you, of all people, have a great handle on all this.

we love you. and i agree with 'chelle - pictures!!
