Its 2:30 am and I can't sleep

I don't even know why I'm writing this, I don't really have much to say. I'm just here and can't sleep, so I caught up on my blog readings.
I had some good recently, my hands are finally washed 100% clean of the legal battles I've been going through for the past too many years. I've had lots of people ask if I feel any different, and I can't say I do sadly. Maybe once it settles in? I don't know. But it is nice to know I don't have the added expense or stress of everything. Funny enough I'm going to miss visiting the girls at the legal office, and they told me I better visit in the future too.
We also had a good Valentines Day. A friend of mine sent some flowers over and made my desk smell fantastic. When I got back from work, my mom had dinner started for us that was delicious. The boys got some yummy candy as well from her and she helped the boys pick out a cute card for me. After that, we got a movie and had a night in. I couldn't think of a better way to spend Valentines, except maybe if I had a sweetheart of my own. But until then, I have three very handsome misters that I adore.
I also decided we needed to get back into the structure of a chore chart. I tried it this morning and it worked fantastic. We each have a room we are responsible for and at the end of the night we make sure it's picked up. We also all have dinner chores, bedtime chores and weekend chores. If someone is caught not doing their chores, then they get an extra chore or money docked off the allowance. Our routine this morning of cleaning took about an hour for the whole house instead of the normal four hours. It was a dream. I'm also having the boys help create a menu for our week which has made me want to cook more because they hold me accountable. Last week was Tyler's turn and we ate at home all nights except for Thursday when we ate at the parents. This week is Nate's turn and he has some good stuff lined up, I'm looking forward to it.

So thats the last few weeks in a nutshell. Its been full of fun times, the boys making me laugh and all of us just enjoying our time with each other. Its been nice. I look forward to the next week to see what it brings.
