Overload!

I have at least nine things I want to blog, and can't seem to carve out any time to do it.  A few random musings instead:

    - "vacation" with four kids is fun, but hardly restful.

    - when you have a job where no one else can fill in for you while you're away, the first week after vacation totally blows.

    - 10 year old boys who cry because someone washed their chalk drawing off the driveway in order to start the fun over again are really, really fucking annoying

    - people who are subject matter experts on a particular topic and demand respect for their own expertise, but don't respect or even acknowledge the expertise of others are even more annoying

    - it's really hot and miserable outside, and my allergies are kicking my ass

    - firing people sucks

That is all.

at least you've come out on the other side alive and probably in one piece?

Austin is really 10?
that's scary.

Yep - he's really 10. He'll be 11 in January. It's nuts.

It's too bad we couldn't get the boys together... this was just such a short trip. This week is nuts because Lee and I are both back to work, Gracie has dance lessons tonight and tomorrow night, Lee's working 2nd shift Thursday and Friday, and then Austin goes home Saturday.

Whee!

btw - is your icon a photo of a shirt from Target? I saw one like that there the other night and immediately thought of you.

Yep, it is! We found it (and of course had to have it). I've been default-icon less for so long, it fits the bill for now. I need new, interesting icons.

my kids leave for VA beach tomorrow. This summer has gone by way too quickly.

I know - I only have a few icons on this account. I go over to my old account and gank them as I need 'em.

And yes... summer has gone by WAY too fast. Jonny and Gracie start school in less than three weeks.

Holy crap!!

LOL on all fronts.

And "I can totally relate" on many of them.

Babies who scream every time you put them down for a nap are freaking annoying too. I have no idea what his problem is but he's done this the last two days.

5 minutes of screaming, me going and trying to calm him down
5 minutes of screaming, me going and trying to calm him down
5 minutes of screaming, me going and trying to calm him down
5 minutes of screaming, me going and trying to calm him down
5 minutes of screaming, me going and trying to calm him down
5 minutes of screaming, me going and trying to calm him down
10 minutes of screaming...and we have an asleep baby.

Of course then he woke up an hour later and now he's in there being all mad and I have to go get him.

Ugh.

(sorry to invade your blog to vent.)
