IS *this* WHERE I GET TO SCREAM ARRRRRRRRRRGH!!!?!!!

  1. OMG sometimes life drives ya nuts. Doesn't it?????

    First, (stupid me), I am soccer team mom this spring for my son and NOTHING IS WORKING OUT.---I had to change party dates due to the stupid bowling alley OVERBOOKING grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....I have had 2 photographers fall through or change their packages/prices on me....now it looks as if I will be doing dig pics myself/printing em myself cause NO ONE wants to spend 15.00 a crack for teams pics (who can blame em). If the trophies dont' turn out right, I am gonna go jump in the ocean at high tide. I SWEAR!!!!!

    WORK is driving me nuts. Between our horrible computer charting and EMAR systems that never get better and the crazy pace, I wanna SCREAM "CAALLLLLGONNNNNNNN take me away..."

    My kids and their spring fever is driving me to drink. Homeschooling has its rewards, at least I think so. RIGHT? right????? Lately, I find myself questioning my sanity doing this. Being together nearly 24/7 is making me coo coo. Someone tell me it's almost summer PUHLEEZE!

    My son is turning 13 and it shows. Boy oh boy does it. To anyone who says girls are horrible at 13, ok, I believe you---but hormonal boys are no dang picnic, either. It's gonna be him or me I swear. I think I will go lock myself in my bedroom for HIS safety. grrrrrr

    OH and what the HELL is up with his KNOWING EVERYTHING and MY suddenly being the most stupid and gullible creature on earth. Why did he think it was a good idea to pierce his friend's ears out behind the fence and then act like "everyone does it so it must be ok"? Hmmm???? Why are teens just arrogant toddlers in oversized bodies??? Why, oh why, when I say the sky is blue, he will insist it's fushia just to ARGUE WITH ME???? Why did I *have* kids? Oh I remember, I LOVE kids......heehehe right. Jeeeezzzz

    My dh has decided he is gonna retire from the military in Jan, 2006 (can't blame him)-----buttttttttt no line on a JOB!!!! UGH UGH UGH. We need to find a house/place to live we can afford SOON and this place (Seattle/Tacoma) is beyond expensive. The houses we can afford suck. I would not put my cat in some of em. Aww well, It's ok dear no pressure. I will just put in tons of overtime hours at my job so we can stay affloat. I need more practice on MEDITECH anyhow, right????!!!! That is IF I have a job after the sale of our hospital (which I just found out about yesterday) goes through to an as-yet unknown entity.


    Going back home to Wisconsin seems impossible, too, as there are not as many jobs for us there. Family is there, work not. EEEEEEEEEEUGH I am feeling the stress already. I am just praying something comes up for the dh before he retires oh PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I feel like screaming. I am so stressed out. Even my face is showing it----zits at my age????? DAMMIT. Where is the ******* chocolate?! WAh.......

    Ok pity party over. Thank you.....Now I can go lay down after my lovely long night shift and actually sleep a couple hours til one of the kids needs me. I hope I have given em enough to stay busy til then or SOMEONE will PAY.

    Did I mention, I need my CHOCOLATE?!

    Rofl I feel better.

    Oh (((Deb))) I have none of your dramas, but you have all my sympathies. Here - have some chocolate

    Deb, so sorry. It seems like everything always goes wrong at once! Here is a big chocolate brownie!
  5. by   leslie :-D
    to hell with the chocolate.

    ok deb, here's $1,000,000.00 and duct tape for your son's mouth.

    I can relate 100% about the teenage years. My son who is now 27 put us through Hell! I wouldn't wish that on anyone! Thank goodness my daughter who is 24 was a "good child" I told her if she had acted like her brother I would have run away from home! And you homeschool your kids? You are indeed Wonder Woman. Lots of luck.

    Don't hold back Deb, it's bad for your blood pressure.

    awwwwwwwwwwww.... DEB !!! :icon_hug:


    Here ya go Sweety !
    I can feel your anguish ! If you were here, I'd bake you my special "from scratch" chocolate pie !

    Wish I could help... spring IS springing, the kids will soon be able to get out and romp off some of that energy. As for the thirteen year old.. well.. sorry, Hon.. might as well just accept it.. he's going to be that way for a good while ! Heh.. Adam STILL will argue a point just for the sake of argument.
    Although the tone is more cheerful/respectful now than in his pubescent years, but still loves to "debate".

    I do hope and pray your dh will be able to find something which he not only LIKES but can also provide the financial support you all need.

    So sorry you're feeling so troubled... perhaps a good Calgon bath and a little chocolate.. and a little brandy.. heh... will help ease the tension. Maybe just getting it all off your chest helped a wee bit. Hope so. :kiss

    Sending you many (((hugs))) and happy thoughts.

    I want you to know how much I enjoy reading all your posts, too!

    Wishing you a peaceful rest of the week...

    Sorry Deb..been there done that (team mom) and never again! Wish we didn't live so far apart..my hubby is a photographer part-time..he would give you a good deal. But they balked at $15??? Crazy! But I can believe it..needless to say, he gave up on sports photography and went to weddings, where the $$ is.

    I have a 12-year old son, who as we speak is trying to be as annoying as possible while I am trying to type.

    Been there done that with a husband getting out of the military and no job..it works out eventually.

    I am sorry you having a rough time..BIG HUGE HUGS AND LOTS OF CHOCOLATE TO YOU!

    Oh honey!!! I am so sorry things are so hectic for you!

    Come back to Wisconsin, and I will deliver that hug to you in person!!!

    You're a great person who doesn't deserve this strife!

    I'll say prayers and keep fingers crossed for you that things iron themselves out with as little damage to you as possible.

    Just make sure you wear a life jacket.


    OH and what the HELL is up with his KNOWING EVERYTHING and MY suddenly being the most stupid and gullible creature on earth.
    Don't worry, when he is in his early twenties, he would be amazed how all of a sudden you become real smart.

    Why, oh why, when I say the sky is blue, he will insist it's fushia just to ARGUE WITH ME???? Why did I *have* kids? Oh I remember, I LOVE kids......heehehe right. Jeeeezzzz
    You love kids, but you did not know they will turn into teeagers.

    I feel like screaming. I am so stressed out. Even my face is showing it----zits at my age????? DAMMIT. Where is the ******* chocolate?! WAh.......
    I am confused, I thought chocolate causes zits?

    Ok pity party over. Thank you.....Now I can go lay down after my lovely long night shift and actually sleep a couple hours til one of the kids needs me. I hope I have given em enough to stay busy til then or SOMEONE will PAY.

    Oh, now I get it... you are just going through chocolate withdraw...

    wow the responses here are so kind. I already feel better. what a great group of cheerleaders you are. I am sure things will work out....I was just on a self pity bend today. I am having an anniversary of the loss of a pregnancy and a bit hormonal and all this stuff is just piling up and getting to me. I try hard not to take it out on family and friends, so I came here. You guys really came through. Thank you for caring so much and indulging my embarassing pity party. I "feel the love" rofl.

    where are you in Wisconsin?my dh family populate the Western part, from Eau Claire to the St Croix River. I do love it there. But jobs are tighter than here.
