I'm tired of everything today.

Before I arrived at work today I had already worked 40.75 hours this week. I know, I know. A lot of people work a lot more than that. I get it. But for me? It's been a lot. Especially because quite a few of those have been 4am specials, sitting in front of the computer trying not to gouge my own eyes out because what I'm attempting to do is either a) completely hosed or b) completely boring or c) a combination of a and b.

I should be listing half of everything I own on eBay tonight. I've only listed twelve things so far. I hate listing things on eBay, but I hate having a cluttered house more and Craigslist here just sucks.

In the morning? I have to get up at the asscrack of dawn and take the dog to the groomer. Because she smells like an unwiped anus and no matter how many baths I give her she continues to smell like an unwiped anus because her hair is so freaking long.

And the best part? This morning my son told me, as he climbed out the car to go to Elementary School, "Don't worry about anyone shooting and killing me today mom. We have cameras at our school. No bad men can get in."

My son, my ten year-old son, has to worry about that.

I want to eat chocolate and plan tropical vacations now.

that is just so sad. He shouldn't have to even think about such things.

ugh. I'm sorry. This morning my husband was reading the paper and he told me about a headline, "mother stabs her daughters and then herself." I said, "please don't tell me. I just can't take anymore."

I hope you ate chocolate and planned a vacation.

So often I don't get why life has to be so hard.

Hugging my boys closer,

Oh honey. That is so sad. I'm sorry.

I am totally with you on eating chocolate and planning tropical vacations.

My LIFE smells like unwiped anus.

Sorry your in the dumps too. Sucks to be us.

Good thing there are cameras at school.

I love dogs but even when they are washed they smell like anus. Washed or unwashed... they smell like anus.

Boy Child is awesome. A little strange... but so with it and totally awesome. :-) You really are lucky and I hope to be as lucky as you are someday.

If I was a guy I would want my name to be Pat Migroin! Ha! I just heard that on TV and I wanted to write it down.

Seriously, the first week of K5 my son comes home and tells me about how they learned how to turn off all the lights, lock the door, and all huddle behind the desk in the corner so bad guys couldn't see them and shoot them. I almost didn;t send him back!
I guess it's better to have an escape plan than a tragedy, but still!

PS - I had (have) a dog I nicknamed "AL" for anus licker. That was his favorite thing to do when I watched TV. Not just the smell, but the sound - he drove me nuts! So he licks his butt outside now. He seems pretty happy, I know I am!

Wow school sure has changed. Kids shouldn't have to worry about that stuff at all. It sucks.

Sorry to hear you're feeling like crap.

I like to plan vacations when I feel that way too, but I prefer potato chips. :)

Man, I've had a heartbreaking week, but that just killed me. Poor baby.

It disturbs me to no end that, as parents, we need to worry about our children when they're at school. It makes my heart ache beyond words that a CHILD has to even think about that.

An unwiped anus, huh? That's pleasant.

Or not.

Don't you love it when our kids remind us of things we happened to "forget" to worry about???

Ugh, it hurts my heart to know that he even has to think about that. That any child has to think abou that.
