a peaceful afternoon

Chris took such a long nap yesterday afternoon that he didn't want to sleep last night. And in the process of him not sleeping, he decided he wanted to talk and watch a movie in the bedroom while I was trying to sleep. So with that and the time changing, I woke up this morning feeling like I hadn't slept at all.

I made everyone breakfast and did dishes. He got dressed and left for Etown. I had told him yesterday that since he had to work, he could go today and I wouldn't bitch about it. Of course, I didn't anticipate feeling like death warmed over either but I didn't say anything. Just gave him a kiss and told him to have a nice time.

Elizabeth and Nick have argued all morning. Over what to watch and what to do and Nick spent most of the morning looking out the Jimmy had told him that they would pick him up today and take him to see Hope and Miss Jean (Dawn's sister and aunt) with Dylan so he was all antsy. Finally about 1 pm, he tells me that he had counted his chickens too early...lmao. And he stopped looking out the door. I tried to explain to him that Aunt Dawn doesn't get in a hurry and it's Sunday so more than likely they hadn't left yet. He wasn't convinced. At 1:30 there was a knock on the door and Dylan was standing there asking if Nick could go so I shooed him out of the house. He'll be happy now. He got to go and he doesn't have to look at me and his sister all afternoon. At least his spring break week ended well. He's had people over or been to someone's house every day since Thursday. I told him I was going to clean his room while he was gone which probably made him happier. He hates to clean it and I know for a fact that Elizabeth is the one who messed it up this time so I decided to do it.

We still have a ton of work to do on the history project. I have laundry going and Elizabeth is on the couch watch the 3rd Harry Potter movie. I've been wondering if they are going to make movies out of all 7 books? Because the kid who plays HP will be old and gray by the time they get to the 7th I'm amazed at how much he's grown up from one movie to the next. And someone else playing his part won't be the same. He is the face of Harry Potter now.

I've got a headache brewing. I can feel it behind my eyes and I took some medicine in the hopes of holding it off. I don't think it's going to work.

Going away now. Got to get stuff done.
