U is for....

I love a Saturday morning........It is rare for us to ever have anything going on Saturday mornings so this has become my time to acutally get the recliner.  PJ's still on, coffee brewing, kicked back in the recliner with my laptop.  Good right? This morning I awoke to Steriod boy and 6:30.  I did not want them to wake J so I got up and told them to quiet down.  How is it they can get up so early on weekends but I have to practically douse them with water on school days.   They are back there watching episodes of Full House and playing video games.

This is this AM.....
Excuse the mess in the boys room.  Its kinda the gathering place.  H is gone to his mom's for the K moves in. 

  It is very dark and omnious the house is all it. 

So.....I need to write about the letter U.  I am going to write some random...."I don't understands".....hope you can relate.

I don't understand why children are up at the butt crack of dawn on the weekends...but sleep in on school days because they are tired.

I don't understand why men are so damn moody.....and when you call them out on it....they say "Im not, you are!"

I do understand that this is why I am not married. 

I don't understand peoples fascination with Farmville and fish world on Facebook.

I don't understand why its so hard for the kids to understand why they have to do chores.

I don't understand school systems that are unorganized and sometimes seem to be completely inept. 

I don't understand school systems that serve food no adult there would eat.  My kids are so taking their lunches....

I don't understand men who decide they have to run errands in torrential rain storms.

I don't understand how to "A" personalities ever work it out!

I don't understand why it is never the Cubs year and on that note I do not understand why the Cubs employ Theriot or Fukodome for that matter.  I don't understand why they do not call me for consalltation!

I don't understand why I have to continue to write research papers.  I can't tell you how many I have written.  I get the concept already.

I don't understand why if certain classes fill up so fast why more are not offered in that subject.  Makes not sense.

I don't understand school fundraising.  Cookies, candy, shirts, magazines,wrapping paper.........Just let me write a check at the beginning of the year and be done with it.  I don't want to be involved in selling crap and I don't like you telling my kids they can not go to a magic show if they do not sell 4 boxes of said crap.  I love when my kids say they could care less about the magic show and we just chunk the fundraiser in the trash. 

I don't understand nosey neighbors

I don't understand why I procrastinate.

I definetly do not understand why I have not made myself a cup of coffee yet. 

ahhhhh.....thats better.  First cup in a few days other than the gas station cup yesterday.  The flu or whatever I had  makes you not want anything.  I wish it had made me not want to eat.  I could of totally used a week of not eating.  Damn bathing suit season coming too fast.

I'm glad you feel better and got that off your chest. I agree and wonder about lots of those, particularly school fundraisers. What the heck, already? Its PUBLIC school! ahve a great weekend!

It's not just school fundraisers, it's dance studio fundraisers, soccer association fundraisers, cub scout fundraisers...we homeschool, and I still get more than my fill of fundraisers. Maybe I should have my own fundraiser...the "Help-pay-to-educate-my-4-kids-so-I-can-afford-a-decent-haircut" Fundraiser, but somehow I don't think that would fly. (smirk)

Lots of those things are no longer a bother to me. Age has its rewards, you know. ha. i do empathize with you however. I have my own set of things that bother me, like the print on these blogs is so small, I have to retype a lot of letters when I get the red line underneath the words (poor eyesight). ha ha.
Really cute posting.
