Things I’ve Learned This Week

** If a day ever went by where a kid HADN’T peed on a toilet seat here, I’d swear I was in the wrong house.

** I seriously could not be more unorganized.

** Everybody needs a mental health day.  (Still waiting impatiently to cash in on mine….)

** Homework supervision is totally interfering with my tweeting and Facebooking.

** There are some days that I’m allergic to motherhood (like Mondays and Fridays).

** Casey Anthony couldn’t be more full of herself even if she stuck her own head up her ass.

** New Year’s resolutions are clearly not for me.

** There are evidently still “mean girls” in the adult world.  Sad but very true.

** 1,000 piece puzzles are extremely addictive, especially for nerds like me.

** It’s highly possible to be a little TOO neighborly.

** Legos, thank God, are still the bomb.

** Sushi makes a really crappy week a little less crappy.

** A crazy woman in the UK gave her daughter a voucher for lipo as a stocking stuffer. And here my kids just got candy canes….

** The shit and the fan are meeting way too often these days.

** Despite what I might think, God does not give me more than I can handle.

    The shit and the fan are meeting too often these days <<love it!

    This week I learned

    -It's a good thing I didn't realize my dream of having 5 children (after having friends 1 and 3 yr olds, my 4, 8 and 10 yr olds) all day yesterday.

    – Life isn't fair:
    A person can spend the last 10 months is prison and 1 month in jail, have 2 failure to appears and the judge gives him a month to pay $100 and encourages him to work off the rest thru community service. I go in for what I thought were 2 minor violations (expired license and tags) and walk out needing a lawyer.

    Sometimes I feel like you live in my house. Legos, allergies, pee and all.

    This week I learned:
    –Pretty shoes are attracted to mud like a magnet!
    –never a good idea to let a teen know the pulled muscle in your side hurts to laugh (they lack compassion & find painful wincing hysterically funny)
    –practice your “parent-stern” face, so when your kid tells you a story of bad behavior…you don’t start laughing.

    I watched the Casey Anthony video today. I was puzzled as to WHY she thinks we care enough about her “having something to call her own without having to give it back.” It made me stabby watching that at the start of the morning.

  5. My fave:

    “** Homework supervision is totally interfering with my tweeting and Facebooking.”

    DITTO! 🙂

    I also learned that 2nd grade homework is giving me a rash and the rash is now oozing and pussing.

    I wanted to write in for her homework this week this answer to this question:

    Q: Why is quadralateral A similar to quadralateral B?”
    A: Are you fucking serious, what grade is this homework supposed to be for???? I’m gonna stab somebody.

    But I didn’t.

    But someday I just might if this shit keeps up 😉

    Happy Weekend!!

    That card is AWESOME! And I totally need a mental health day: both my kids have had pink eye this week. Ick.

  7. Ally says:

    I so love Bluntcard.
    Those puzzles are indeed addictive.
    I heard about the lipo stocking stuffer today – crazy.

  8. John says:

    If Legos are ever not the bomb, I’m in a lot of trouble.

    I’m working from home today, which I’m considering as part mental health day, just because it means that I won’t spend the entire day with people stopping by my cube to ask me stuff.
