Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
That picture is to cute for words!
I hate to be the one to break it to you, but this job is a life sentence. Even when they move out, they still need you and you still worry.
I’d say a little trip to Vegas in March is in order.
You have two of the MOST GORGEOUS CHILDREN on the face of the earth…. you cannot resign….. nor do you really want to…lets get real… YOU LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF MOTHERHOOD… but alcohol in magnificent quantities would help eh?
Friglet, by god, I think today is the day to break it to the mister that I’m going to Vegas in March. He saw the meltdown. It was nuclear. Yes, yes, I think today is the day.
Chris H, tipping my wine to you as we speak.
Vegas? Did someone say Vegas?
Thats the best pic…so adorable!
I told my hubby three weeks after the boy was born that I was going to take a vacation labor day weekend. When he has his 5 days off of work. He says to me “what am I suppose to do with the kids?” I say “umm, gee I dunno watch them, feed them, bathe them, and make sure they don’t die!” his response “what do I feed them?” My response is the door slamming. He then says “Don’t think you are getting a paid vacation!” Hell if I care; I get a break from the kiddos for more than the 8 hrs I’m sleeping (and I don’t even get that straight). I’ll take what I can get!!
Dude, Gavin had that same shirt that O is wearing back in ‘04. Its the coolest!
I’ve had my letter of resignation drafted more times than I can count.
They are too cute for you to resign…You just need to put in for some vacation time.
what a post at a good time! My 20 month old was up from 3:45 a.m. to 5:15, then the 4 month old got up at 6:15 and THEN the 5 year old got up at 7 wanting to discuss the intracacies of the newest episode of TRANSFORMERS with me. Ugh, Calgon take me away!
that cute little voice just melts my heart. Yeah, don’t resign; work on the vacation and the yearly bonus!
Great post! LOL! I am totally with you! GORGEOUS babies too!
I wish your frustration didn’t make me laugh so much. I’ve had more of these days than I care to count (the second paragraph of this post? I totally could have written it!)
This week I like my children, though. Who knows what next week will bring. Yours are adorable, by the way.
But look how beautiful they are and the cherry dress wearing one has such shiny hair and is kissing her brother, surely these cannot be the cause of your distress? I almost started to talk about 13 years time but I am far too kind. I have 6 kids, the oldest is 22 the youngest 4…...what can I say? Really what? My brain doesn’t work anymore, there, that’s something to look forward to, if you have more kids and manage to get through the teen years while having more toddlers, you stop caring, nothing matters, you go a bit deaf and only hear the screams that come with actual pain and blood… there is hope, cling to it…..oh and Vegas? Hell yeah.
Motherhood, a never-ending contradiction.
Damn cute kids, though…it really is worth it. Right? Please say it is, cause today it doesn’t really seem that way.
Yes, I’ve been stuck at the “it’s hard” and not finding the but here lately either.
God, they are cute. Do they give 401k?
I’ve had many a morning where I just look at DH and say: I don’t wanna play the Mommy game today!!!
If you figure out a way to get sick days, you *must* share.
I sprained/twisted my ankle a month ago, and it’s still sore and swollen and trying to heal - what with me having to chase up and down the stairs after poopy children and all. I got like 5 hours of “sick time” when dh stayed home the next morning so I could rest and stay off my foot. 5 hours. In over three years. Gah. I still can’t properly stretch at the gym because my ankle won’t lay flat. What’s this about Vegas in March?
such a timely post. I am ready hand in my resignation after the day I had. seriously. even a cute picture of my kids isn’t helping right now.
But I do have to say that your kids are beautiful!
Y’all are the bestest. Because right, the cute picture of my kid? NOT HELPING. I still see deamon child. But it’s so sweet to hear kind things about them. This was captured in a moment, quickly, before all hell broke loose. But still!
And that Vegas gig? COME! Y’all!! COME!!!
I keep forgetting to put my button up. (What? The button-whore won ‘t put up the DAMN BUTTON ALREADY?) But seriously! SERIOUSLY! It’s the best and only vacation I think I’ll ever get from these “beautiful” monsters of mine. It’s a party, yo! (And Kate, you can fly with me so I can hold your hand and squeeze the shit out of it whilst drinking through my fear of flying. Sound appealing? YES?)
Yeah…and whenever you feel that way look at a picture of them such as the one you posted and say, “Dayang! It’s a good think they’re cute!” and that’s about when you’ll change your mind, eh? I’ve been there. Lots of times. Like, say, oh…TODAY!
