I have one week before beginning the next chapter of my life. Today starts day one of zen. Heh. I kinda have to laugh at that because today has been anything but zen.

I woke up this morning with a chip on my shoulder and just crabby! I was under the impression the boys would have been up, haircuts done, showered, and ready to begin the day. I got out of bed and stumbled to the bathroom to find Nick still passed out in his bed. That set the tone for my irritation level for today. I went to the bathroom and then woke him up. He grumbled and groaned. I know he wasn’t up to that late last night because the time on his internet for his tablet turns off promptly at 10 pm. I went to be roughly 11 pm. They were both in bed and watching their tablets, or maybe even asleep when I went to bed.

I came downstairs and got myself some coffee. Mikhail was playing on the Xbox. He hadn’t gotten a haircut either so I was really confused. I finally went downstairs after some time to question Mike as to what happened with haircuts and he informed me the place didn’t open until 10 am. Oh. Well, don’t you feel dumb? A bit of my irritation melted away.

Skip ahead for a little while, I was still wound up, but relaxing anyway. The boys did go get their haircuts. I talked to my mom on the phone for a good hour. I expressed my irritation from topics ranging from Disney to family. Nothing was calming me down. Ugh. Today was just going to be one of those days.

The boys took their showers. Mikhail wanted to play with their friends at their house. Well, about 20 minutes later, I have a group of kids headed towards my house. Four of them total, mine included. Mike goes, “You’re not playing on the Xbox.” Nick, of course, threw an insta-fit. “WHAT!? WHY!?” So, they went upstairs and played doing what Nick wanted to do. At some point in time, Nick whacked Mikhail in the face with a lightsaber. Before I knew it, the kids were playing only with Nick and Mikhail was downstairs bored because his friends weren’t even including him. He was clearly upset.

Well, the kids just left, so I guess it’s time for me to talk to Nick about his attitude and actions to not include his brother even though it was Mikhail who wanted the friends to come over!

I’ll finish this with saying I came here to talk about all the things I was planning on doing this week before starting my new job but I guess I kinda got sidetracked. I do plan on doing a bunch of stuff this week. Lots of chores and getting the cleaning done. Gotta gets the house clean. Gotta spend this week off doing chores! Do exactly what I was told to do.  — Ugh. That’s for another entry that probably will never be spoken of because I don’t hide this blog from anyone anymore.

Let’s just say, people irritate me. I am not a people-person. Ok. Time to go discuss with Nick what he did.
