WTH??? It took me 2 1/2 hours to get home from Arundle Mills today. DH left base at the same time I left the mall, but he got off at 100E and looped back around to get on 100W while I stayed on 295. He went to a meeting and got back on the road. I then attempted to get on the beltway, ended up getting off and going on I-70 to Rt 97 to get home. He went that way from the start. He then stopped at the grocery store and we got home at the same time.

And the whole reason I went to Base today was to get a new dang blasted ID and I couldn't. GGGgrrrrrrr. It's been a llllllloooooong week.

Oh dear! (and it wasn't even snowing!) So sorry - and you didn't get your ID either - what a bummer! Hope you got some good shopping in at Arundel Mills!

I was wondering if you got caught in all that mess going home.

Morning.

New dryer should be delivered sometime this morning.

I've already had a break down with this family and their crapy behavior, so I think I will go lay in the tub and calm down.

Tracy, it must be something in the air! I had a meltdown Tuesday myself, was a basket case all afternoon and into the evening! Apparently my anti-depressant wasn't working too well! Thank God yesterday was better, I couldn't have stood two days in a row! Hope you feel better after your soak in the tub!

We all need to run away from home for about a week and see how they like it!

Thank gawd for bubble baths....the way things sound is Santa going to bother stopping by at ALL this year?!


Squidward said it was fine to drop me off at Amanda's, so we can start the party early.. Think he is going to do some shopping hisself..either that or come back home and sleep on the couch all day.....

Now refresh my memory, Cici's is the all you can eat pizza buffet thing for like $5 right? we had one in San Diego we ate at a lot.

Today I will be making Chex Mix just cuz I want some, a few extra cards need doing up for last minute people and if I am particularly inspired may get a head start on say February's submission for the Christmas Card challenge.. although I really need some nice plain generic ones to have on hand for RAK welcoming committee and just becuase cards. I have some images that I have gotten that might be good to sneak in to DH's duffel bag.....

does everybody want a Kohl's coupon?!

They would like to get together in January or February, so I hope to use some of the other projects that I had already made.

Overall, it was a fun day of stamping

Cici's is $5.99 now plus a drink, have military ID for a discount and yes it's all you can eat. Their buffalo chicken pizza is yummy! I want a coupon. Santa needs to go shopping for me and DH since the kids are getting NOTHING!

Santa is coming just to be mean! I'm the grinch this year! Tuesday the kids broke their bottom bed and didn't bother to tell me, so when I see it I'm mad, of course, so this morning while waiting for the dryer to be delivered I decide to make DH remove the broken bed frame so I could fix up the box spring and mattress so the room would at least look okay until I feel the kids have earned a new bed.

I don't for see any new anything in the house for at least a YEAR! Holy heck, that room was way beyond YUCK! All the clothes that they claim I wash and never give back under the broken bed and stuffed in the corner out of sight...mind you this is the younger two's room, but remarkablely all kinds of dirty clothes in there from the two older BRATS! Not to mention over thanksgiving break I made all the kids clean up that room since I see all of them in there watching tv and playing games but never wanting to help the two little ones pick it up, so you would think it should be somewhat clean right? Oh no, orange peels, Caprisun wrappers, candy wrappers, half eaten candy canes (from the tree) half eaten apples (at least a dozen) and so on and on it goes! Mind you there is to be no food upstairs...ugh...I almost throw up several times. I have half the crap picked up and it's still looks like a dumping zone in there, but I couldn't take the smell or touching one more thing...had to take a bath and scrub until the outer layer of my skin was gone.

I'm already on the third load of laundry from the room and there is probably at least 4 more to go. I think my head is going to explode! I told DH he might want to call CPS to give them a heads up that there is going to be some child abuse going on this afternoon at our house if they want to come witness it...grr! Darn kids.

I need to retype their Santa hate letters, so they really get the point this year why they are only getting underwear and socks!

Mrs Claus is madder than heck and the kids will pay the piper!!!!!! BAH HUM BUG!

If you're running away, please take me! DH keeps going over facts and figures for kitchen updating and I don't think I can take that stress! He'll go off to work and leave me to deal with the mess. I think it must be the time of year or something, doesn't take much for me to lose it!

Holy Crap, Tracy.

I will tell you what worked for my Mom on my younger siblings( I was bad, just not as bad as they were.. and I had a legitimate medical excuse for all the half eaten food in my bedroom, but I digress)

EVERYTHING they owned was thrown into giant trash bags. they got clothes for school that was it( and since we all wore uniforms....). all their toys, non school books, everything was taken out of their rooms.

we never were allowed TVs or computers or even stereos or game systems in our bedrooms. If they managed to go a week keeping their room clean and putting their clothes away, they got one extra set of clothes and ONE non clothing item back. and each week they managed to keep it up they got another thing. and when they screwed up, back it all went into the trash bags. My sister learned after one or two times. My brother never did care enough so he never got most of his stuff back.

Pajama weekend at my house after John leaves. No kids or husbands allowed. I will confiscate all cell phones and pagers at the door and my own phone will be turned off so we don't hear it ring. Nobody can call and bother us.

I so need a day off. I am going crazy. Nothing as bad as you Tracy, but my girls are bouncing off the walls and I can't take it. I have no motivation to do anything, and even the day of fun I had with you all on Saturday was negated by time I got to bed that night.

NOT for the faint of heart, those with young children within earshot or those who are easily offended. But some of us need a laugh.....

LOL! I don't give crap back I make them sell it at yard sales so it being taken away stings twice. BIG JERKS!

I hear ya! I feel like I'm going to go POSTAL real soon. As soon as the first round of kids get home I'm leaving to go shopping. I'm bringing them home tv dinners for them to cook themselves and I'm going out to dinner, so I don't have to look at them for awhile. I may or may not come home tonight. I haven't decided yet.

Pics are taken She even smiled. They will be ready for pick up the day after we leave for Ohio, but they weren't for presents anyway, so no big deal. I don't think I realized how huge she really is until they went to take the nakey shots and I stood back, I don't normally see her from that perspective so it was really noticeable. Hehe.

Have any of you gone to Angela's Happy Stamper in Reston, VA? I see they have a copic class (and a Bella copic class) as well. I signed up for the one in January and I am on the waiting list for the other two. It would be fun to have some of you join me!

It's a nice store lots of nice rubber. I'm not a copic fan.....well I like them but not willing to spend the money for them. Have fun at the class!

Santa is coming just to be mean! I'm the grinch this year! Tuesday the kids broke their bottom bed and didn't bother to tell me, so when I see it I'm mad, of course, so this morning while waiting for the dryer to be delivered I decide to make DH remove the broken bed frame so I could fix up the box spring and mattress so the room would at least look okay until I feel the kids have earned a new bed.

I don't for see any new anything in the house for at least a YEAR! Holy heck, that room was way beyond YUCK! All the clothes that they claim I wash and never give back under the broken bed and stuffed in the corner out of sight...mind you this is the younger two's room, but remarkablely all kinds of dirty clothes in there from the two older BRATS! Not to mention over thanksgiving break I made all the kids clean up that room since I see all of them in there watching tv and playing games but never wanting to help the two little ones pick it up, so you would think it should be somewhat clean right? Oh no, orange peels, Caprisun wrappers, candy wrappers, half eaten candy canes (from the tree) half eaten apples (at least a dozen) and so on and on it goes! Mind you there is to be no food upstairs...ugh...I almost throw up several times. I have half the crap picked up and it's still looks like a dumping zone in there, but I couldn't take the smell or touching one more thing...had to take a bath and scrub until the outer layer of my skin was gone.

I'm already on the third load of laundry from the room and there is probably at least 4 more to go. I think my head is going to explode! I told DH he might want to call CPS to give them a heads up that there is going to be some child abuse going on this afternoon at our house if they want to come witness it...grr! Darn kids.

I need to retype their Santa hate letters, so they really get the point this year why they are only getting underwear and socks!

Mrs Claus is madder than heck and the kids will pay the piper!!!!!! BAH HUM BUG!
Oh Tracy, I feel for you! Hopefully we can bring some cheer to your life on Saturday!!!!

Tracy,

I hope today goes better for you! My brother and I were horrible with our rooms, I had clothes everywhere!!! Now I am the complete opposite, everything is usually really neat.

My parents did the trash bag trick, but I usually didn't get it back...they also made me do the laundry that was taken down!
