    I am in a mean mood today LOL. We had horrible storms all night that kept me up watching the Weather Channel for updates. Daycare mom got off work at noon yesterday but didn't bother to come and pick up her child because she needed to get her hair done! Then she was 40 minutes late getting...

    My pickiest eater is my youngest. Been picky from the day she was born. Yes, she would stop breastfeeding give you a "What??" look if you had eaten anything strange recently. She drowns all her food in ranch dressing. So we gave up trying to please her and make the food the way we like as...

    I am going to put my 15 year old in a bubble! He has now broken 3 bones since July! I had him in again this morning since he had an accident playing ball last night. He broke his finger ( very obvious from the 90degrr angle it was sticking out at!) He now needs to go to a specialist to...

    I went to Walmart yesterday evening and youngest ds wanted to go with me. I don't normally go shopping with kids because of the pestering factor but decided to let him go. Anyway, he ended up being my coupon holder for the coupons I decided to use. I explained about product sizes, coupons, and...

    My ds Brad is extremely hard to wake up, this morning he laughed at me then I lost my temper, he woke up and punched the wall.:dis: Now I have to fix the wall. DS is very hard to wake up, he stays up late and takes hours to wake up. I worked till 12:30a.m. and got up at 5 to wake him up for...
  6. Homesteading and gardening
    Odd title....sorry. The niece wanted chickens back this spring. My plan was to hatch eggs for her, but she wanted birds that would lay green eggs as adults. Could not find eggs that both parents were Ameracaunas. We ended up with 12 chicks from TSC. I raised 6 and niece got 6. We each lost one...

    I'd forgotten how much fun little kids' programs are. We went to our grandson's Christmas program tonight at school, and it was so much fun!!! He's a first grader, and the stage was filled with squirmy little bodies in the process of losing teeth. They are learning to use rhythm instruments...
  8. Home Environment
    I can't think of a much more inefficient use of space than a standard closet in a kid's room - a hanging rod that they can't reach, a shelf they can't reach, and a pile of space left over between their little clothes and the floor. In our previous houses our kids had either walk-ins or closets...
  9. Drugstore & Grocery Store Deals/Product Reviews
    I found cold medicine, cold+cough nightime medicine, and 'pedialyte' dissolving strips (though the generic CVS ones) today for no more than $1.50 each. All kid's formulas, expire 10/11 or later! One step closer to being 'prepared' for 'sick season'.

    We rented this movie last night - it was hilarious!:) I don't believe that there were any cuss words and I would agree that its a great family movie. Personally, with me being surrounded by 6 goofy boys (7 including DH), I could totally relate to the theme of this movie:) Not gonna tell ya, b/c...
  11. Single Moms
    I'm really feeling kind of blah today I'm a single mom, my son is five. I don't usually get home from work until anywhere between 7-7:30pm. My son started school this week. The past two days when we get home my sons goes literally from the car to my neighors (a woman probably in her mid to...

    Well...along with the rest of his high school band, the football team, the cheerleaders,etc. ;) ESPN has a show called ESPN Rise which spotlights different high school football games around the country and my son's school will be one of the teams televised this coming Saturday. He's excited...
  13. Leisure & Media Arts
    When I was a kid (born 1960) we'd be out playing after we had our bowl of sugar laden cereal and wouldn't be back til lunchtime. I'd hop on my bike looking for adventure and would always stop next door or down the street to ring the bell & see if so & so could play. Then there was a round of...

    Was at CVS the other day. Some of the workers at CVS stopped a girl from leaving. They told her she could not leave because she had taken some things and she needed to empty her bag. Which she did. She had a huge bottle of sports drink and some other huge thing. Mind you, she was laughing...

    DS6 has them. He started getting them yesterday. He's such a trooper! He's rarely complained about itching and always asks me for more calamine lotion when he gets itchy. We gave him an Aveeno oatmeal bath that seems to really help. When I was a kid, I was in absolutely agony. My mom never put...
  16. Family
    When I was a kid, my folks for the most part allowed us to pick our own activities and interests. I was always reading or writing, and they just let me go my way on that. On the other hand, they insisted that we be a part of our church activities (which wasn't much since we went to a little...
  17. Household notebooks and home manuals
    Now we are trying to get the kids in order to do chores. But they want it written down. They want their own little manual so to speak. But truly, I'm at loss. After school - dd12 pick up dcg from bus. put school stuff away clear and set table load or unload dishwasher help hand wash...
  18. Dave Ramsey
    Well my university student ran out of money before the end of the semester. Our solution? We sent her the Dave Ramsey CD set. Told her to get together with her fiance and both of them listen to it. She's promised...and sent her father and I a list of things she needs that totals $1000CAD...

    Today I had to pay bills and catch up on some Quicken. (I still have a tremendous backlog.) Anyway, I gave DD instructions, unload the dishwasher make our breakfast then I'll come have breakfast with you. Half-hour or 45 minutes later, I called out, "What are you doing?" "Eating...
