One Of Those Days!

It's been one of those days and I am feeling like this~ My house is a mess, my laundry is about to reach the roof, I am stressed about this house being on the market and living here, I have no motivation to tackle the house and my girls are acting like this~
I've been trying to go to my happy place and think of this~

Frustrating, frustrating day. Hmm....Makes we wonder...why did I get out of bed today?
Anyhow.. here are a few funnies ~
Top Ten Signs That You Might Be A Frustrated Mom
1. Your children know how to read HTML code but can't operate a vacuum cleaner.
2. Your children tell you that you said "yes" and you don't even remember the question.
3. You go to the grocery store and find yourself having a good time.
4. Your husband asks how your day went and you rate it on a scale of 1-10 repeats of "stop that!" or "no!".
5. You can't remember the last time you didn't have to share your drink.
6. You mistakenly tell the kids it's "sanity" time when you meant to say "bed" time.
7. The laundry seems to have taken on an evil nature and you begin to feel that it's out to get you.
8. You dread hearing the phone ring because it's a sure sign there's about to be trouble amongst the children.
9. It's finally your turn on the computer and "Touched by an Angel" is just coming on.
10.You go to sleep with "I'm bored" or "I'm hungry" still ringing in your ears.
You Might Be A Mom If . . .
1. Your feet stick to the kitchen floor, and you don't care.
2. When the kids are fighting, you threaten to lock them in a room together and not let them out until someone's bleeding.
3. You can't find your cordless phone, so you ask a friend to call you, and you run around the house madly, following the sound until you locate the phone downstairs in the laundry basket.
4. You spend an entire week wearing sweats.
5. Your idea of a good day is making it through without a child leaking bodily fluids on you.
6. Popsicles become a food staple.
7. Your favorite television show is a cartoon.
8. Peanut butter and jelly is eaten at least in one meal a day.
9. You're willing to kiss your child's boo-boo, regardless of where it is.
10. Your kids make jokes about bodily functions, and you think it's funny.
11. You're so desperate for adult conversation that you spill your guts to the telemarketer that calls...and HE hangs up on YOU!
12. Spit is your number one cleaning agent.
13. You buy cereal with marshmallows in it.
14. The closest you get to gourmet cooking is making Rice Krispie treats.
15. You're up each night until 10:00 P.M. vacuuming, dusting, wiping, washing, drying, loading, unloading, shopping, cooking, driving, flushing, ironing, sweeping, picking up, changing sheets, changing diapers, bathing, helping with homework, paying bills, budgeting, clipping coupons, folding clothes, putting to bed, dragging out of bed, brushing, chasing, buckling, feeding (them, not you), PLUS swinging, playing baseball, bike riding, pushing trucks, cuddling dolls, roller blading, basketball, football, catch, bubbles, sprinklers, slides, nature walks, coloring, crafts, jumping rope, PLUS raking, trimming, planting, edging, mowing, gardening, painting, and walking the dog. You get up at 5:30 AM and you have no time to eat, sleep, drink, or go to the bathroom, and yet...you still managed to gain 10 pounds.
And..last funny..A spoof off of MTV's Pimp my ride. Sad thing is they nailed this! Can I cry already?

Evil video! I love it all! When you have a bad day, you have to have a good sense of humor. It's the only thing getting us out of bed day to day!

Oh Lauri, you never fail to make me smile! Hopefully tomorrow you can realx a little?

AHH, isn't that the truth. My ride feels about like that, though my favorite was: You get up at 5:30 AM and you have no time to eat, sleep, drink, or go to the bathroom, and yet...you still managed to gain 10 pounds.


Aaahhh, the joys of motherhood. Gotta love it! The video was perfect. I could hardly drive my van for a month because of the stench! Hope you have a better day today. You might need to do some retail therapy and get something for yourself!

I hope your day is better. Just reflect back on Week 37 eating at Anthony's and remember all the great moments. Sometimes then the bad moments do not seem so bad. Love the video.
