Slightly Cranky.....

(BIG vent)

I have been slightly cranky today. Perhaps it is the weather….perhaps it is the walls are closing in on me. Perhaps I should consider continuing my medication a little longer……

First off! Why it is that something that belongs to “mom” is a free for all!? It bugs the heck out of me when everyone just thinks that they can touch my “stuff” This morning when I go to get my ponytail band…it is gone! But yesterday Sarah had *4* ponytails in her hair! Hmm..does she know where any of them are!? Nope! She thinks they may be downstairs someplace…or perhaps she lost them outside! You think ponytails, no biggie…well I have some that do not have metal that I keep for myself. We have the cheapy ones that Sarah can play with (and loose) so I go to look for mine and all I find are Sarah's….

last week, someone thought it was alright to play with”moms” video camera….(Mom had to beg and plead for this camera for along time)….well someone left it out on top of a pile and low and behold the thing slid off the pile and fell to the floor and broke. No one feels guilty! No one even cares that my camera got broke!

Earlier, Sarah was being 4 (according to dh) and she decided after all this time she didn’t know what 2+0=. SHE KNOWS THIS!!!! I know she does!!! So I send her to take a nap. And I worked with Timmy. Which he did really well with out her!!! After I was finished with Timmy, I wanted to sew, (I haven’t done that in a long time)I can’t just sit down to sew, I have to clean all the junk off from on top of and in front of my sewing table. Now before I go to bed, I have to clean off my bed because that is where all my junk went. In addition, I find Sarah in MY bed!!! Why is that you ask! Cause Sarah doesn’t have a bed! Well she does, but there is no room for it. So she sleeps with Timmy in the room with the 3 boys. Or in this case MY bed…

As I said earlier, the walls are closing in on me! We have such a small house! I am thankful we have a house! But I really NEED more room. The basement is full of junk because we cleaned out the kids bedrooms (which didn’t help any) so now we have a big mess down there….I have my stamp area in the basement but even though NO ONE is allowed in MY area….things keep getting put over there. And I find all kind of toys, trash, dishes and such that I didn’t put there! Where is My space!? (Don’t send me to myspace.com!)

And then there is always the money issue! I feel most guilty about that when I spend money on myself! Which i did this week.....

I have been working alot lately (as many hours as they will give me) so i am very tired and sore. In fact tonight is the only night this week i am NOT working!

and tomorrow is another day......

You know I'd do anything I can to help! Take some kids for a while, or store some stuff here for ya, or let you hang out here for a nice relaxing weekend. It would be easier if you lived closer. :( Or if we had a car that held more than four people.

I'm bummed for you about the video camera. :( I think your family owes you a nice one for Christmas.

I understand you feeling guilty about spending money, but on the other hand you are contributing a lot more money to the family income right now... I'm prob'ly a bit biased.

If it helps, Wildchild lost one of my hair bands just a couple of weeks ago. They are not very good of keeping track of their stuff either, or my stuff that they borrow. But I'm able to keep more stuff away from them, I guess. Oh, and Wildchild told me today that she can read, but she doesn't like to. Fun.

Deep breaths and a nice hot cup of tea. Sometimes when the Quipper is out of town bedtime gets moved up to 7 p.m. (and my older one enjoys reading in her room) so I can listen to the quiet all by myself for a while.

Just for the record...Emily found all 4 of my hair bands! :o)

I'm sorry Debbie. I could get all teary eyed with mother-to=mother sympathy just reading about it.
I think bad things happen in bigger houses too. My only advice - massive decluttering. I'm trying to do that here.

Thanks Polly!
i don't *want* a huge house! I think that would be too much work! lol We are just so crowded in this house. I agree with something Emily said...that we are fighting for personal space... or something like that.
A kitchen that would hold more than 2 people would be grand. or a dining room where we wouldn't have to pull the table out each day...a bedroom for Sarah.
the decluttering is going very slow...
