What a long week. I mean looooong. The country kids have been sneaking downstairs at night and were a hot mess from lack of sleep. I was a hot mess because I am battling a sinus cold and am exhausted from being woke by them sneaking. Guess they don’t sneak very well.
Luckily by Thursday we managed to get sleep and attitudes turned around. Mine included. Maybe it was because the stars aligned and the Cubs won the World Series!?!?!
The oldest country kid spent the weekend helping around his grandparent’s property since my mom broke her ankle and they had a lot of outside jobs that had to be done before the snow flies. I will be picking him up in few and I hope the positive behavior he has been displaying before leaving and while there continues.

|Hubby raked leaves and I took this photo less then 24 hours later. Mother Nature has a sense of humor!|
|So for those of you who were wondering…. The (elusive) oldest country kid was a Lego brick and the littlest country kid (minus makeup, so glad I bought it) was a clown for Halloween this year.|
