Going on strike against unfair labor practices

I am sick of being treated like a second class citizen and I have told the perpetrators this repeatedly and yet nothing has changed...well I see no way around this impasse then to stop doing what I am doing and go on Strike.  I have informed them of my terms and let them know that I am not doing anything this week until I get some respect.  I am officially on Mommy Strike.

No meals, no clean laundry, no rides, no talking unless they have something nice to anyone.   I am done being disrespected and taken advantage of. (they can do all the above themselves, I am not helping at all.)

Zeke told me today while borrowing my lotion that to stop with the make-up it wasn't helping anyway....I told him to leave and that he is not welcomed back to my bathroom with that attitude.  Qatar got mad last week because I did not bring him candy home from the store(you never think about anyone but are a terrible mom) no one gets any candy because I am not shopping this week or cooking(good luck with having cereal everynight- we are almost out of milk and cereal)...Cenny yells at me when I tell her her room is a mess- so she is in her room until it is clean and if not done by 8PM tonight David is taking a garbage bag to what is left....JT thinks I'm stupid and tells me as much everyday...also the make-up things was JT's first...he told me that last week, he also informed that I am his maid.... think again buddy.  Gunnar BTW is on his 6th month of being my favorite child ever.  

Well this stupid, ugly mother is done and enjoying her week with class two nights, going out to dinner with David Weds, Thurs, and Friday....good luck kids there is no real food in the house only ingredients!!!

End of my Second Semester and on to my Third now

I ended my second semester with straight A'a again and I am relaxing a bit...I have been a bit intense, another student told me that an A is 100% down to 95% so relax to the 95% if you require an A....The A is on the transcript not the percentage you got in the class.  I guess I need to do that.  I freaked out this semester because the weather was just awful on Mondays and Tuesdays....Thursday classes were never an issue.  So I did miss two classes due to weather and not wanting to die on the road.

I have a 4.0 average....yeah!!!!!  I do need to channel a bit of the bachelor degree Lisa and relax a bit more. School starts again on Thursday and I am already starting to panic with all the new things I will have to do and the service hours I will have to fit in......I need a vacation.

Yes this is what I will do at least a few times to each child each year or so.

Then I will take the in-law out for dinner and a movie while my child puts up with the mess I made and the kids they have produced that I have just overfed sugar, caffeine and shown then tons of scary movies.  HAHAHA!!!!!  I will enjoy bugging my kids.

We came in 2nd in State

We lost the championship game, but we played well and the other team wasted lots of time just passing the ball running down the clock most of the game.  I am proud of our boys...they played their hearts out.

Packers at State

Article on Packers first state game here.

We are at state again and won the first game.  Qatar was in the Pep Band and they have T-shirts that say. "I'm with the Band." Zeke also went with some friends parents and had a great time.  The game was close...too close I quit listening and had to call a friend to see what happened after shopping.  Go Packers

We do everything...everything...

Girl drama at school and at home because of Facebook....oh man hating the internet for the first time in my life.

"We do everything in the house"  this is what I hear when they are asked to do anything around the house.  Zeke is on Accutane and the 1st month was fine and then the 2nd month started and the doctor doubled the dose.....the moody attitude started yesterday and I want to toss him out.  He does everything also and no one works as hard as he anything.  Grad school is nothing compared to 8th grade....8th grade is much more demanding.....I have no idea how busy he is and I expect him to clean out the dishwasher?  OH YEAH!!!!  But he forgets I already passed 8th grade...been there done that!

I hate teenagers seriously hate them and their moody moody selves.  Everything is bad, life is terrible, school is hard and no one understands how awful their lives smiles, mad all the time and grumpy!!!  I never do enough and if I think of doing anything for myself or buying myself something then I am so so so so selfish.  I don't want to drive them everywhere they want to go or buy them everything they want?  I am a terrible mother!!!!!  With a capital M or T.  Please take them away until they are older and then I will take them back....the terrible twos are bad, 8 is bad, but ...this is worse!  So much worse then I ever imagined.  David and I will be taking a vacation away from this misery, alone, this year!

Love At Home - Not Our Home

Fighting and yelling is all that is going on recently at our home and I for one and sick of it.  I decided to not plan a family vacation so far this year because of it.  Why would I want to torture myself with the fighting by taking them away for a week, I might as well save the money and enjoy it at home?  Crazy for sure.

Teenagers.....I have too many and the emotions, hormones and the rest is going to kill I think.  Moody and mad at everything and everyone.....I just want to be alone.   Me too!!!!  Trust me!

Busy life

I have finals this week and next and things are a bit crazy....I also have three presentations to do in the next two weeks and I have to write, plan and teach two different phonic lessons for kids to my class...with four word work stations each.  So we are going to make words and then eat them out of alphabet crackers and alphabets.  Then we will make words out of play-dough, then I have a few phonics wheels to make words out of and a few boggle boards to make words out of....I have a few other ideas that need a bit more work.  I need to go get play-dough tomorrow I don't have any any more surprise.  This is why I didn't choose elementary ed, but I have a few classes I need to take that seem to go that way.  I bought magnetic letters to show the lesson to the kids and then I printed off ten alphabets and covered each letter in contact paper.  I made wands for everyone since the lesson is on word wizards.  I need to practice tomorrow since I am here waiting for the appliance guy to install the new dish washer...the duct tape on the old one is giving out.

Ice Dam

We have one on the roof of the garage and Zeke and I spent a few hours up there yesterday clearing it away....thank heaven it rained and would be so much worse when it freezes again.  My hands were numb for hours and then stingy as they came back to life.  At first the tips I couldn't feel and when I touched them to my face they were warm...after the sting when I touched them to my face they were ice cold....strange...A huge pile of ice was up against the wall, under the siding in places, it took a bit of work to break it up and then to break up the ice in the gutters so they could run the melting snow and rain off the roof.  Home ownership is a pain some times.
