about quiet reflection - well let's just say the moment is over. I'm glad I didn't make any promises to myself about that kind of thing for more than one day. HOLY BANANAS.
My children have been WHINING incessently since we walked in the door. I can deal with crabby. I can deal with sassy. I can deal with sad and mad and glad. BUT whining drives me insane. I can't listen to it. It makes me want to run out of the house and never come back. I don't even know where they learned this from because I may be a lot of things but I AM NOT A WHINER and I don't think there is anyone who can dispute that fact. I'm sorry I'm complaining and really what kind of real mom would say these things - but the whining - it has to stop. Besides I'm not going to leave - at least not until the HotY gets home.
My iPod Nano came today and right now I can't even find happiness in it's wonderful Hot Pinkness. Why? Because there is WHINING happening in my house and not only that but I accidentally set the language to Greek or some darn language that I don't have a clue how to understand (I could have navigated myself around if I had selected Spanish). So now I have to reset the language - but is there a manual included? NO, they refer me to their web-site - which is where I went and why I am here right now because I can't concentrate on a manual when there is WHINING going on so instead I'm here - complaining to you!
There was something else I was going to write but I've forgotten and why have I forgotten? Because of the WHINING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, I'm going to take some deep breaths now. I'm going to pretend I don't hear Lauren sitting on the stairs whining because she's hungry even though she has already had a cup full of colored marshmallows. I'm going to pretend she is not getting louder. I am going to pretend that I am far far away. Damn this is not working - I still hear her but the good news is I remember what else I was going to say - it's big stuff. Really! (oh but before we go one more step further let me just say that the HotY - HE'S LATE!!!! He obviously has super special ESP also and knows about the whining that is going on here. Lucky him).
ANYWAY, in the past two weeks four people have been in shock that I do not have a Facebook Page. At first I thought this might be hard for them to believe based on my social personality but then I was informed that it is surprising because of my overriding need to know stuff - in otherwords there are people who think I may be NOSY! I know! In order to appease all those shocked with disbelief by my lack of a Facebook Page I now have a Facebook Page. I don't have anything on it and I feel far too old to have a Facebook Page and I only have a few friends right now but I'm finding out more and more good stuff all the time :-)
Ahhhhh... the HotY just got home - and would you believe the whining has stopped - of course - AND he brought me a present - the Sex and the City movie - who knows when I will be able to watch it - but at least it's mine. OH AND BY THE WAY if ONE person leaves a comment telling me I am spoiled or a princess or high maintenance I'm going to delete it - seriously.
Okay I'm off to feed my family and figure out this iPod thing so I can take a walk by MYSELF and try to forget about the whining.
