First Day of School

this mom is excited but mostly just for the peace and quiet i dont seem to get that when kids are here. the kids have been bickering like mad. about anything and everything. they need their space and they get that at school. we added another cat to our house they faught all day yesterday but i just caught them cuddling in my bed lol !!! one was born may 23 hes so sweet and gentle he has moments when he gets really crazy . the female was born july 7 she is so fuzzy. very sweet and loud lol!. the kids adore them its nice to have kittens in the house again. randy has been working like crazy which is nice we actually had money left over this pay check awww breathing room again but we are banking it . i am having surgery sometime this month and i will be off for 6-8 weeks which will be a nice break from the drama. girls and drama goes hand in hand i am off to enjoy the rest of quiet day ......
