Late start to the day today. Everyone went to bed at the same time, but they were all struggling to get up this morning. I appreciated the silence at 6am and not the usual dulcet tones of arguing. Just when I thought I had got rid of them for the day, I was reminded that I had school photos this morning at their school. This usually takes an hour, but I got out of there 15 minutes shy of 3pm. I feel a little ripped off.

Took 4 of 5 to town to get Halloween stuff. Worst idea ever. I always run away from Mitchy when we go to town with her tribe in tow. Needless to say, dropped some imperative F-Bombs in the KMart.
