Lisa gotta love those deals!!! our stores were nuts too.

I haven't even thought about christmas. Boys need nothing making it very hard to shop.

Nan hope they get the stove wired up soon. we're doing leftovers.

Same thing here Christy..
My boys are tough to buy for because they don't ever ask for much... I usually try to get them one thing that they have been really wanting... but the other stuff we get when they need.... although if DS16 keeps growing he may need new jeans about every month...

PJ gave me her list...but most of it was a CD she wanted and some clothes... Like the child needs any more clothes.. she took all my sweaters to school... LOL I went to find a sweater the other day... and it wasn't here... skyped with her and she was wearing it!

I want to make hubby an over the shoulder rice bag, U shaped for his neck and his shoulders. I also have grand plans to make the kids rice hand warmers. We'll see if they come to fruition.

my dad just made Levi a new bed @ 6' he no longer fit in his bunkbeds so we got an XL full he's only got 5-8" at the most. I was going to get him new bedding but he likes my queen sheets so I'm looking for just a bedspread in his hunting pattern.
I know we are getting them 2 reloading dies for their shotgun and riffle. They love spending time with their dad doing that so and those aren't cheap. Other than that I'm at a loss.

Nan I did the samething to my mother now she does it to me!!!!
Lisa I love doing redos!

Been a day!

DD#1 was late to Scrooge because she was being lazy and went back to bed.
Tried to get some work done and starting getting phone calls that DD was being nasty and throwing a tantrum at practice. Needless to say she is grounded from anything and everything, pulled from all activities, and now has nothing in her room but a bed and a dresser. She will also have to publicly apologize to the group and the teacher. I do not have anymore patience for nasty attitudes.

Ran some errands, gathered some items for my auction basket for the play and for DD#3's bday party.
Lost my momentum for the day dealing with the above, trying to get it back and orders finished tonight so I can work on the dance album for the dance studio director.
need to drop DD's off and run to office depot the envies I got at staples are just a smidge too small.
DBF is making dinner
Maybe hanging out watching some tv shows get caught up

Tomorrow
more of the same
try to get things squared away and projects done. need to get a handle on things.
DBF wants me to add inventory so maybe that.

Rachel
Hang in there! Those attitudes are the death of us parents. I thought boys would be better than girls but I'm thinking they are all the same.

Rachal,
It will get better.. it will... it'll just take time.. PJ and I had it out several times...
The boys are pushing my buttons too.. DS16 knows his attitude MUST stay in check as I hold the keys to his ability to get his license at the end of the month.. when he cops the attitude, I quickly remind him of that...

I have threatened to wear my tiara and make a sash that says "Mean Mommy of the Year" and wear it to their events... The one day I put the tiara on for fun they all were scattering trying to figure out who messed up!

Sorry you had such a rough day.. those days are awful especially when you have a list of things to do and then get derailed by those issues...

It's a hard lesson to learn and hopefully it will sink in fast. My 2 have had to learn it the hard way more than once, manly Eric. Thankfully right now it's just family getting the attitude. While that's still not ok in my book it's better to keep it at home.

I look at it as I rather loose mother of the year than have one of my kids be a brat. I've lost that title many a year, nice to know I have good company!

That is rough! You are doing the right thing too! I teach middle school, so I see attitude all the time from both boys and girls. That fact that you are giving a consequence for the attitude is tough, but what needs to be done as a parent!! There are so many parents I encounter that don't care or even worse-they encourage it! They try to be their kids friend instead of their parent. In opinion that is what makes you "mom of the year" because you are playing the role of a caring parent. Maybe not in your daughter's eyes, but she will come around.
