Today is December 5th....and we're all still alive!!! :-)
Really though...the kids are awesome. They are well-behaved and a lot of fun to be around!

That first Sunday night- at 7:30 my eyelids were drooping and I was like...."umm....really!?!!? 10???" I painstakingly made it to 10pm. I precisely sent everyone to bed and went to bed myself. Evidently I passed out right away because I had several text messages from 10:06 and 10:08pm that I never heard!
I got the kids off to school, headed to work, then came home, made dinner, did homework, etc.....
I made it to 8:45 pm before getting too tired. Progress, my friends...progress. :-)
On Tuesday night I made it til 9:30 before hitting my wall. I told the guys that at 10pm they were needing to go to bed. I got a fight that evening....so I had to take these:
