I just want every female on this board to JAWM

Recommended Posts

I hate everyone.  The entire world is stupid.  Biology is idiotic.  People are stupid and should not be allowed to talk.  My children need to be locked up in their bedrooms for the rest of the day.  Maybe the whole weekend.  And I deserve an adult beverage and some dark chocolate.

I agree with the first 2 sentiments today. Still homeless since the appraiser & underwriter can't get their jobs done in a timely manner.

My kids poured popcorn kernals down a vent while I was resting from an injury (like I have been all week). I can't get the whole story out of them, or whether it was accidental or on purpose, or accidentally-on-purpose. They also ate a whole jar of nutella. And spilled a bunch of frozen peas, but cleaned them up, to their credit. This was all in the ten minutes all day that they weren't directly supervised.

But let me tell you, friends, margaritas make everything better.

Edit: it's fine, I can laugh about it now. And not just because of the margarita. :)

Popcorn kernels, frozen peas, and Nutella.....that's a very interesting set of items for them to have out.  I actually can't really imagine why all are out at the same time lol.  Of course it's usually pretty difficult to figure out what's inside a child's brain lol

Margaritas RULE. 

Sorry about the kernels and Nutella though. That might call for some top shelf Tequila. For both of you. Cheers.

An open invite for JAWM? I'll bite.

Fine.  I have no love lost for the medical profession today.  Yes, dd has had stomach aches for 7 months.  Sure, we'd love to wait another 6 weeks for the peds gastro specialist.  
In other news, I'm blunt.  It's a fact, often far too blunt.  Do not try to discern what you think I mean, just take me at my word, I say precisely and exactly what I mean.  There are NO "layers" to discern and distinguish.
Thus, I'm putting my family up for adoption today - all of them, DH included.  Stick a fork in me, I'm done.

I was leaving the dollar store when I got a text from dh that said, "Starting home" and "I'll be ready to eat lunch" Umm, I don't have lunch even planned. Good thing he found some sloppy joe mix in the freezer.

I just got home from a huge, all-day, end-of-season swim meet in the broiling sun.  Fortunately I had 6 kids swimming in it, so at there are plenty of races to be interested in.  

My 4 year old and 6 year old only had one race each--the 25 M freestyle.  The 6 Y.O has swam this before, but someone was in the lane with him (not touching him or really near him, but still . . . "assisted".  Well, he started last night crying about how he couldn't swim unassisted (even though he has been doing it every morning in practice), and he was back at it this morning, crying and carrying on.  While he was sitting and waiting on the bench to be called up, he was still carrying on, which caused my 4 year old to also start fussing and carrying on, in the midst of a million other kids, on a million degree day.  Eventually he got to the blocks, where he pitched a major tantrum and refused to get up on them, so needless to say, he didn't swim.  My 4 year old daughter, however, swam across the pool for the first time unassisted (although she had to grab the lane line several times).  And all my other kids did just fine, so overall it was a good day.  But . . 

Typing this out all sounds sounds so petty, lol--I mean, he's 6, and I totally get it.  I'm just fried from a day in the sun, and I wish *I* could have swam 25 M in a nice, cool, refreshing pool!  And there's nothing like having tons of other parents looking on as your child throws a major tantrum front and center! 😜

My dh is a saint and took the kids to the restaurant where the team is gathering to celebrate the end of the season.  I have a roaring headache and am happily not conversing with anyone in person, lol.

Agreed.

Right after I washed and wrestled the slip covers back on the chair my 2 yr old dumped out a box of cereal all over it, and on the area rug I just washed. She also dumped out a pencil sharpener full of shavings and half a bag of popcorn. 

Meanwhile I dug out an entire wheel barrel's worth of landscape rocks that were buried in my yard, by hand. My nails are ripped down past the quick, and i was covered in sweat, but I did it, and the dishes, and cleaned up the baby's mess, while DH hung out with friends today. When he got home I showed him the wheel barrel full of rocks I'd dug and he just frowned and said, "why would you do that"? Um, because I want GRASS in our backyard one day, and it won't grow on rocks?!? He KNOWS this. I've redone the entire front yard, and am now working on the backyard, and was hot and tired and it felt like a slap in the face. 

Then I had to run to the store to get stuff to get rid of the stupid sod webworms that are eating my brand new grass in the front yard, and when I got back the toddler kept crying to come out with me, while DH laid on the couch ignoring it all. I ended up pushing the spreader with one hand while carrying her on my hip with the other hand, since I couldn't put her down and have her run onto the grass I was treating. 

Oh, and when I let the kids have a swim, they were arguing and driving me crazy so i told them to stop playing the game they were arguing about. At which point my DD called me a party pooper. Yeah, that was the end of swim time. 

Very over today.

Forget the margaritas.  I go straight for tequila shots, dressed up.

So, had to update - my DH surprised me today with a new grill for the back patio as a present to show his appreciation for all the work I'm doing on the yard (and because the old grill was falling apart). I'd asked him to please pick up propane for the grill and he did, and a whole new grill! The old one had rust, two burners that were temperamental to get started, the bottom was rusting out, one burner cover was ruined, etc but it still worked as long as I kept heavy duty tin foil on the bottom of it, lit the burners in a certain order with a certain timing, etc, but man I'm excited for a new one! (I do the grilling and the yard work in our family, not DH)

So I guess I'll let him out of the dog house.
