I just shrieked at my kids for having their umpteenth argument. I mean, eyes closed, fists at my sides, foot bouncing SHRIEKED for them to stop it. Aaaaand I forgot that #2 had a friend over. You know what? I've had it with stupid fighting over remotes, who got the last popsicle, etc. DONE. Thinking about having multiple kids? Keep this in mind.

I did have a nice reprieve of silliness today, and that is in the form of the Guido-version of Leonardo da Vinci's "Man" I made. Yes, Jersey Shore is back, and they are in ITALY. I don't care, you guys, it is a work and a wonder and I am beyond happy about it.

Also, I have a regular writer pinch hitting for Project Runway, and she's playing a hard and fast game of catch-up, seeing as ep. 2 just aired, so be patient with us. Episode 1 juuuuust went up.

The Mr. is playing golf today. One, it's a million degrees outside. Two, I know he's still on his vacation before he starts traveling again next week, but Three, I COULD REALLY USE A VACATION.

I am absolutely burned out. Just all used up. I haven't felt like this since I gave birth. Calgon, take them away, (I like my house, I just want to be ALONE, omg.) I'm not even going to tell you about the ugly cry I had in the closet last night. Two more weeks, two more weeks, they go to school in two more weeks.

This is the reason that 1) I'm not a mom, and 2) why I have great respect for those who are. I honestly would not have made it this far! Even great kids (like yours are) can be overwhelming in large doses!

YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH. Ugh, motherhood: not for the faint of heart. Or me (at least for today.)

so I just replied to your email asking how you are today...you can ignore that as I see how you are. I will work on ways to fix it for you.

Crying in the closet...hey, I've done worse. :) And if you're gonna be in the closet for anything, it may as well be a big cry. Just sayin'.

I am so stoke Jersey Shore is back. Heading over to read right now...

Also <3<3<3 x infinity

LOL, you are super awesome. I've had enough "down time" now that I think I can pull the offenders into a room, apologize, and then make them apologize to each other. That should buy me... an hour of peace? *thunk*

AHAHAHAHAm true, true. I am SO HAPPY about JS, it's redonk.

<3 <3 <3 to you, too, you're good people, Mel.

FYI none of this would be happening if you'd just sent them all to that third world sweatshop SPECIAL INTERNATIONAL ARTS & CRAFTS CAMP for the summer like I told you to.

I want to run away to a beach SO BAD.

Of course, my hub has no vacay time right now, and I'm still not up to travelling, especially after last week's health issue. *sigh*

Can you have them put you in time-out? I used to have the kids do that, and it kinda worked. Well, giggles anyway. Seriously though, hugs all around.

You should come up and visit PA. I have a lovely spare room and queen sized futon for you to stay on, the temp lately has been a pleasant and breezy 82 degrees and best of all, we are right next to NJ without actually BEING IN NJ. It's win-win. Plus, you send your kiddos to live with the Amish for a week, learn 'em something about butter churnin', quilt sewin' and barn raising. It'll be educational! :D

That endless humid heatwave saps the will to live. Shrieking seems entirely appropriate!

This is why pillows were invented, to gently lull the shrieking child to sleep as you firmly clasp it over their head.

Next holidays: camp! It builds character, actually it probably only breeds pink eye and foot fungus, but at least they'll be out of the house.

HUGS AND GROPINGS!

How might one become a writer for your site? Because there might be something starting up soon that I might be interested in writing for. Maybe.

HEY YOU! I JUST WANT TO LEAP IN WITH OBNOXIOUS CAPS AND YELL HAPPY BIRTHDAY AT YOU!

May your day be filled with awesome people, presents, parties and ponies, but only because there was a p theme going. Get rid of the ponies, they'll shit everywhere.

Today is Your Day: which means you can kill a drifter of your choice.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
