I’m Back Like A Bad Penny…And With More Attitude

I’m back!!!

Well, I’m back but man…am I bitchy.

First of all, I have the single worst case of the Sunday Blues I’ve had in a while. My kids have been with me all week and while I’ve enjoyed them…it’s time for us all to have our own lives again. They are trying to kill each other at this point which, in turn, gives me the sensational idea to lock them in a room to duke it out and see who is left standing. A cage match for short people if you will. However, tomorrow means more corporate cage match…I’m better at fighting with 10 year olds than I am dealing with the nuances of advertising. Well, maybe not. Advertising? Bring. It. On. You are a cakewalk compared to my two warring hellions.

Also, twitter has shut me down. Twitter? WHY???? You told me I am at my follow limit but the annoying Australian person I made the mistake of following last week who sent me no less than a dozen direct messages to download her book on how to make a million in real estate (Thanks honey, perhaps you heard real estate right now is a bit scary? NO? Okay, how about I ignore you anyway?) has over 10,000 followers. (Note to her followers…I’m pretty sure she if full of shit but maybe I’m just cynical.) I’m following about 450 people now which makes me a newbie…so what the hell Twitter? You and I are gonna have a go-round tomorrow, I promise you that. (Also, in a moment of shameless self promotion, if you’d like to follow me on Twitter, please do! Click here: http://twitter.com/thestilettomom and if Twitter ever let’s me out of the time out box, I’ll follow you back…unless you try to sell me real estate. Then? Not so much.)

Lastly, I’d like to let Microsoft know that they are also on notice. Your movie maker looks so simple YET IT IS NOT. For an hour now, I’ve been trying to insert a song, just one stupid song…and I feel as if you are laughing at me. (Are you laughing at me? Are you???) The good news is, when I fly to Redmond to straighten this out on my lunch hour, I plan to stop in to see my buddy Ann and Ann Again and Again so that should lift my mood.

I think it best if I just slink off into the night now before I scare someone…you know I love you though, right?

Oh, I do.

PS: If you haven’t had enough of my rant for tonight, check out my thoughts on the “new and improved” Dora The Explorer on Deep South Moms by clicking HERE.

PSS: Because can you ever really get enough of me?

PSSS: Please don’t answer that given my surly mood.

    Honey, please. I’ve been hiding out in the office now for two hours listening to my poor baby scream while my husband bounces her on his knee while he watches basketball…..this mama’s reached her weekend limit too! Let’s slip out for a glass of wine, ok? Meet me in Tulsa?

  2. I must say I am ready to join the two of you for wine. No make that something a lot stronger! I have played single parent for 5 weeks now, while the husband works out of town. My son is two years old. Enough said.

  3. I am glad it’s Sunday, because that means tomorrow my lovely daughter returns to school. And, I only get to here “mom” 264 times a day, versus the 942 times per day while she was on Spring Break.

    Jesus H. Christ.

    Oh, and Movie Maker is the devil-incarnate. I swear, play any of your movie’s backwards and it’ll say something about taking your soul.

  4. Sticky says:

    I’m up for the stronger. Wine is just not going to do it anymore… Excuse me for a sec -”there is TOO enough water in the bathtub, hush” Ahhhh, can’t you just got to bed already? .sob.

    Spring break starts tomorrow… wah….

  5. I normally am not a fan of Sundays, but I swear to you, I woke up today and was gleeful that tomorrow is Monday and that means my kids go back to school and I go back to my day shifts at the bookstore (at least for the next two months, then it’s summer vacation! GAH!)! We had a perfectly lovely spring break, but it is all time for us to be apart so we can appreciate each other when we return home at the end of the day!

  6. Chris says:

    Our spring break has just started. I get a full week of this. And to make matters worse, the husband is leaving at 5 in the morning tomorrow and won’t be back until at least Saturday.

    Wait. I changed my mind. That makes it better. =D One less child to pick up after. Bahahaa

  7. Nancy says:

    The upside to being 54? My offspring are 21 and 23 whew, made it.
    Also, I now understand why some species eat their young.

  8. Oh, Great! Did I stumble on the wine drinking Blog?! I’ve spent hours looking for this blog. Count me in!

  9. Dana's Brain says:

    Our break is not until April, but I am taking the kids to FL to visit my parents. It seems like a good idea….but I have a feeling by the end of it I will need to be heavily medicated. Save some of that wine for me, mkay?

  10. I find I’m becoming anti-social on Twitter. Like, if you’ve got a thousand followers then no, I don’t want to be your friend. Or more to the point, I don’t want to be a number you can point at and go ‘ooh, look at all my friends!’ Or maybe I’m just awake too early and I’m a little bitchy.

  11. Robin says:

    Be sure to say hi to Ann for me when you stop by! ;)
    Glad you’re back.

  12. I keep forgetting about Twitter. I don’t have many followers, so not as many people get pissed off when I forget to update. Meh. Pass the wine, please.

  13. pamela says:

    I joined twitter yesterday…and can’t register my phone because the phone page is effed up and will not show me a place to enter my phone info.

    Twitter: FAIL.

  14. Ally says:

    Seriously, there should be a law!! No Spring Break without mandatory fathers paid vacation! And my hubby is self employed, which should mean “manages own time”, but in fact means, “never takes enough time off ‘cos needs to work all the time!” – Go figure!

    Welcome Back, we missed you – and Joy! I am now following you on Twitter!

  15. bex says:

    your rants always crack me up. email me with your movie maker q’s- i used it for years until i got bored and upgraded to sony vegas. not that i know EVERYTHING about movie maker – but how to insert a song is something i know how to do.

  16. a H.I.T. says:

    Sounds like you need a good romance novel and a tall glass of wine.

  17. tuesday says:

    Ugh, spring break I forgot! I have three more week to live it up until then!

  18. Sammanthia says:

    I’ll send you some duct tape- I keep rolls of it in the garage for times such as these.

  19. Keely says:

    You’re bitchy? I hadn’t noticed.

  20. We just had our spring break come-to-jesus ending too. Tears, tantrums, throwing books. Mr. M was cajoled into getting out of bed when I reminded him he had a “cool new (used but new to him) bike” to ride to school.

    Okay. I”m off to read the Dora Explorer escapade. Adios, Senora, I mean, Senorita.

  21. Me again. I read your fabuloso post at the Southern place and even tried to sign up so I could leave a comment. It wouldn’t let me . . . or it could be that I am computer-skills deficient. Probably the latter. But I completely agree with you and NOT the first commenter over at the Southern spot: sexualizing little girl toys is just plain wrong. And you are right to be outraged. Hmmph. So there.

    Swiper No Swiping! What the hell did they do to Dora?
    It was one of the few programs I could tolerate (I really have never
    liked cartoons and Disney movies). Please don’t tell me they have
    Swiper running around with an ear ring and saggy pants.
    Some things are just better when left alone.

  23. Meli says:

    Welcome back!! You are the world’s best ranter!!

    I am not impressed with the ‘new’ Dora. I was hoping that they would have her in hiking boots and jeans, keeping true to the explorer part of her name. But no apparently once they become tweens all girls have to become girlie girls and I find that very disappointing. I wonder what they are going to do to Boots?

  24. Sue says:

    Ok, just found you though Tattooed Minimvan Mom and I am addicted. I started at your husband’s post (which is hysterical by the way) and have died laughing ever since. New blog roll member!

  33. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
