You know how some people run marathons?
Christmas break is my marathon.
Seven straight days with 4 boys (one being 43 years old),
three rapid-fire-40-disc-shooting Nerf guns,
two Star Wars 330-piece Lego sets,
three remote control helicopters,
two sets of boxing gloves,
assorted candy wrappers,
wet boots and mittens
is an exercise of enormous self-control for me.
I have been using every muscle in my body
to try and keep my mouth shut (successful some of the time)
and not not yell (all of the time), "Pick up your crap!"
