Listen, Bub

I know motherhood brings lots of surprises and challenges . . . I know.

But.

A SNOW DAY TWO DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS TRAVEL IS BEYOND ANYTHING GOOD AND KIND AND, WELL, NORMAL!

I don't find it beautiful,
and I don't find it festive,
and I don't find it funny.

And anyone who does think this is funny can join my daughter on the time-out step!  

Got it?

Good!

(Please excuse my tone . . . I've found that to be the most effective one here today.)

My almost 15 year old and my almost 12 year old will be joining your daughter in time out. Mine are much too old to be so wound up before a holiday.

I feel your pain.

Wow. I thought it was me for a minute there. Being an uncle who tries to spoil, I forget about those "mom" days. Though, Mike does get flustered with the cats and dogs at times, and has to make them go outside and play for a bit. LOL

Wonder what the deal is today? My 15 and 13 year old are also on the time-out step after bickering while I was on the phone causing me to yell at them while holding the phone away from my yelling mouth then apologizing to my caller who commiserated by saying her son had pushed her over the edge earlier today. Whew! That was a long sentence! Have they forgotten that Santa is coming in just a few days? I'm sure he'd rather haul a couple of lumps of coal instead of the huge pile of presents these mouthy ones are expecting!

Bah Humbug!

Hello my friend, no I haven't fallen of the side of the earth, just traveling to another country. xxx Am back now and sitting inside with the air conditioner on, it is so hot outside, can you believe it? We have such extreeme differences between our countries, enjoy the snow my dear, I miss it. Ok I will go to the timeout step right now.

It's cold here, too, but not unto snow. If it snowed in Florida, you can bet they would close EVERYTHING. ;-)

XO,

My teens are hoovering & mopping for me right this moment OR Christmas is Cancelled !

Daughter used to call little brother Bubs & one day some one in the village asked him what his name was & he replied " Bubs "
