I can't cook properly

Today's gripe.....
I don't put milk in my scrambled eggs. - Funny you ate them completely gone.
Glad we survived breakfast. It's NOT called breakie. Oh and please stop commenting on what everyone else eats at the table. My kids have had enough of a strain on food issues I don't want them worrying about what they are or aren't eating.
Lunch....grrrr.... I make you soup and a salad thinking I was being kind. You stand in the middle of the kitchen staring once again. Haven't you ever seen anyone cut tomatoes and carrots before? Then we sit down and you tell me it's too much to eat. Well gee thanks for telling me that before I dished it all out for you. Oh and thanks for standing in front of the sink while I was trying to get YOU a drink of water because we all know that's too much of a strain while you are on vacation.
Oh and if you teese my kids again or comment on how you can't get on the floor one more time I may just explode.
Thanks for today's little gripe. Gee I will really miss these after Sept 18th.

I am amazed

It truely amazes me how someone can get to be 60+ years old and cannot do anything. One would think that by then you can get your own cereal bowl, make your own lunchmeat sandwich when the bread, meat, cheese, etc is all on the table in front of you.
Oh and my newest pet peeve is staring at me like I have grown a new eye in the middle of my head when you have nothing else to do.
If you want to care for my children and tell me you are doing so then please Please PLEASE don't take them outside and have me find you on the other end of the house or worse yet inside the house while they are still outside then look at me crazy when I ask where the kids are.
Please remember I am the mother in this house and when I tell the kids it's time for bed be courteous and stay downstairs you've been given warning they were going to bed.
Oh and when I tell the kids to get ready we are going away. If they are getting their shoes on and going to the toilet if you don't hurry up the next time I may just leave without you.

Just fun stuff

You Are a Black and White Cookie

You're often conflicted in life, and you feel pulled in two opposite directions.

When you're good, you're sweet as sugar. And when you're bad, you're wicked!

You Are Boston

Both modern and old school, you never forget your roots.

Well educated and a little snobby, you demand the best.

And quite frankly, you think you are the best.

Famous people from the Boston area: Conan O'Brien, Ben Affleck, New Kids on the Block

You Are a Cappuccino

You're fun, outgoing, and you love to try anything new.

However, you tend to have strong opinions on what you like.

You are a total girly girly at heart - and prefer your coffee with good conversation.

You're the type that seems complex to outsiders, but in reality, you are easy to please

Time's ticking

Thursday the electrician, air conditioner mand and construction worker were here and worked from 7:30 - almost 5:00 PM. Then Friday no one shows up until after 2:30 and then it's just to attach the vent tubes for Belle's new room. Around 8:00PM I get a call that the garage door man will be here at 7:45 AM today (Saturday) and the inspection of the electrical stuff is for early next week and they will be doing the insulation (or pensolashun as Libby calls it) as well as the wallboard next week. Gonna love painting my arm off next weekend and that whole week afterwards.

Only 13 days until the in-laws show up.

Oh and the girls had a cute little slumber party. Ok it was only 3 sisters but they had fun. I put Gwyn and Belle's matresses on Libby's bedroom floor and they slept in her room last night. They giggled and laughed so much I had to go lay down with them at 11:00 PM. They finally fell asleep at 11:30PM.

A new face lift

I figured that I needed a new out look on things so I changed my background to this blog. I didn't realize it was going to take me almost an hour to get all my links back on and have everything lined up the way I wanted it. But it's starting to look a little like what I want now so I guess it's off to clean the house.
Yesterday I did some steaming the boarder off the girl's bathroom wall to so I can repaint it.
Looked at house in Colorado Springs online last night. Seems like all the houses for sale are either 2001 or newer or something from 1965-1980. Guess those houses in the 80s and 90s either don't want to move out or they never built anything then.

Fun Filled Weekend

This weekend was so needed. It was the weekend for the NEOct moms to have their annual BBQ. This year it was at Kim's. We had so much fun. I got two sets of the DVD players that were on sale at Target for the girls on the trip and they worked pretty well until Gwyn just didn't want in the car seat anymore.
Allan sprung the fact he wants to look into moving to Colorado. I told him I'd do whatever is good for him. Which I would but I'm sure it's going to eat me up leaving family. Oh and why didn't he decide this before we added the garage and extra room?
The girls did well in the hotel and even were asleep within only 20 minutes of turning out the lights.
Now back to Monday normal things and start worrying about getting the girl's bathroom as well as 3 bedrooms painted before the in laws get here on the 25th. Hopefully the contractor gets one of those bedrooms finished to paint by then.
