Yesterday was the start of our journey an hour and 40 minutes away, to participate in a soccer tournament for both sons. I did have to work a half a day in which part of the day was cleaning out our building as we are moving into a new one. Occasionally I would see the… Continue reading Travel Soccer Journal Entry-Friday
I’m always looking for inspiration. Today as I sat in my car, praying the lighting would hold off so soccer would continue on, I found this amazing little nugget. I laughed like I do when I see awkward family photos or people of Walmart. I will try (really hard) to not pass judgement. And maybe… Continue reading Disney Princess Nugget
Now my son didn’t wake up Sunday and announce to family and friends, “I wish to be Tupac or Eminem.” No, he has simply requested, nah, demanded a set of luxuries that go beyond my husband’s and my means. Maybe these would be possible if my husband didn’t put hundreds of dollars a month into… Continue reading My Son Wants To Live Like A Rapper
My son wants to earn enough money for a desktop computer which is roughly $300-$400. Good luck, I barely make enough to feed you guys and pay utilities. I sent out social media notices that my son was looking for babysitting gigs. Sure, he would hit his brother’s head on any given day but for… Continue reading Hot Mess And Babysitting
My oldest wants to make money, nah…he wants to do nothing and make money. He’s really starting to piss me off too. Here is the conversation we had last week: “Mom I wanna make money to buy sweet shoes at Dick’s. What can I do?” “Lemme thing…umm….oh, the downstairs closet needs cleaned out!” “Ok, how… Continue reading Making Money
I am so excited to bring this to you guys I can barely stand it. Yesterday morning I placed my son’s bunk bed on Craig’s List for $600 OBO. Here is a screen shot. Seeing that many of my former jobs have been writing product descriptions, I think I did pretty good: About an hour… Continue reading Hot Mess Scams A Craig’s List Scammer!
So last week as I spent the 183rd day pulling my oldest son’s folder out to review his homework he would claim he didn’t have and sign his planner with a signature that made a Doctor’s signature look like elegant calligraphy I came across this little abomination: If you can’t see the image very well,… Continue reading You Want a Sandwich? Go Ask Your Stupid Hero To Make It-Part 1of 3
I never understood unconditional love till my children. I would never die for someone until my children. Sure, I write sarcastic posts about being a mother and may whine sometimes with a little wine but when it comes down to it, I love my sons more than anything on Earth. I’m sure you do too… Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day!
My title pretty much sums it up. I’m sitting at my table attempting to concentrate on this post while my sons talk NON STOP, NEVER STOPPING, MUST TALK ALL-THE-TIME. I’ve presented this question in previous posts and it never gets old as I wonder it 24/7. How do children talk this much? Seriously, one of… Continue reading I Am An Empty Shell of a Woman Tonight
My 6 yr old son wet his bed last night. I’m over it. But he didn’t just wet his bed, he wet his bunk bed. For anyone who hasn’t had the honor of changing a bunk bed, allow me to paint you a picture: If I go to hell, my assigned job will be to… Continue reading My Job In Hell? Changing The Top Bunk Of Every Bunk Bed
