Want Some Cheese with that Whine?

Currently Reading: I'm on Ch 7 of Breaking Dawn. And with the below complaints, I still haven't started Soul's Stone yet.

"Mo-om! My scout socks are dirty, and I need them in an hour! Didn't you do laundry today?"

"Mo-om! I forgot to tell you W had an accident last night. Can you please wash my bedding?"

"Mo-om! This is my last pair of clean underwear! Isn't Thursday laundry day? What did you do all day?"

Eye roll.

My teens know how to run the washer and dryer. I didn't know my scout had worn his new BSA socks to his meeting Monday night, and word had just arrived four hours before about the Eagle Board meeting to review his Eagle Project.

When W climbed out of bed yesterday morning, his nighttime diaper was DRY! Apparently, it 'shot out' a leg opening...and K didn't inform me of this fact until 5pm...

And finally, I finished the corrections on chapters 2, 3, and 4, plus edited Chapter 5 yesterday! What was Mom doing all day? Working! Back me up, here, witnessed me talking out loud, trying new phrases and frantically searching for my thesaurus. And agreed with me when I said I needed a new one.

What? You're taking the kids' side?


What the hell would this family do if I actually worked a 9-5 paying job? Oh the outcries...I'm forcing them to do their own laundry, wash the dinner dishes, feed the dog, and actually sweep and dust once in a while. Call Child Services...Mom's being neglectful...

Back up a minute: What is DAD doing all day long?

Sitting on his ass in front of the TV. So who's the lazy parent NOW?

I may move back to the least there I can work in peace!

Happy Friday:)
I heard that gas prices have shot up 20 cents again. The news this morning said some gas stations were selling it for $2.02, while others were still around $1.79. Since it was $1.96 around here yesterday, I'll find out later today if our prices went up or down.

The temps are hitting 70 today! We're going back to storage for some more organization. If you'll remember, I quit just as I got to the back wall last October. And since more has been added since then, this is the perfect day to go down there. Especially since we plan on adding some more, as soon as we can get a U-Haul truck to clean out the other one up north! (See last Saturday's post)

Today's To-Do List:
-Finish the laundry; my semi-incontinant dog strikes again! This time, it was on hubby's side of the bed; his blankets were hanging down, and she was laying on them. 'Nuff said...and yes, we took her to the vet and she's on medication.

-Chapter 6 edits. My editor is happy with the changes to Chs 3 and 4, but I've yet to hear back on 5.

-The aformentioned storage unit reorganization:)

Time for me to hit the shower and get moving:) TGIF everyone!

I think you need a vacation, my dear. No phone, no kids, no laundry or emergencies that just won't wait.

LOL:) I'd LOVE to join everyone at RT:) Actually, I'm hoping to get rid of the kids during Spring Break, and hopefully D will go back to work at the same time, leaving me with a quiet house:)
