I'm outta here

Yesterday I was this close (---) to walking out the front door, leaving the children to do whatever...burn the house down, I didn't CARE!

Between the heat, pms, and the kids...I just couldn't deal. It was one of those days. I asked boy to go change out of his swimsuit and he just stood in the kitchen staring at me eating a sucker. AHEM...I asked you to go change out of your swimsuit, and he still just stood there. If I could have picked his little ass up and carried him to his bedroom, I would've. But...I can't. DAMN KIDS!

After I got off work I went to see the Morman Tabernacle Choir in Oakland. I'm not Mormon, but whatever. On the way there I vented to my friend and got everything out of my system. I love venting to friends.

When I got home I found a home-made card on my pillow from the kids.

Dear Heather:
Boy and I (girl) are very sorry for the way we acted today. Tomorrow is a new day and it will be great...we promise! We love you, boy and girl.

Awww....I almost started crying (thats the pms).

This morning there was a note on the stove from HostMom thanking me for what I dealt with yesterday and surviving. It feels good to know that they are actual thanking me for what I do. Today was so much better.

Tomorrow we are leaving for Lake Tahoe. They have a condo up there and are in the process of selling it. This will be our last trip sad.


  1. Wow. That is a tough situation to be in with the kids. I am glad you stood your ground and handled it well.

    It is cool that the family recognized the bad situation and made amends.

  2. I'm amazed at how you handled the whole thing. You'll make a cool mom ;)

  3. Kids are so challenging. It's a tough job with their your OWN, let alone someone else's.

    Have fun at Taho!
