Happiness is…

  • Getting screamed at when you tell someone you’ll ‘think about it’ (instead of no).
  • Hearing ‘what-EVER‘ about 136 times a day.
  • Being expected to be a taxi, no matter what.
  • Orthodontist appointments.
  • Saying ‘don’t make me regret letting you do this’ about a dozen times.
  • A dishwasher loaded with clean dishes – for two days (because being online is waaay more important)  Did I mention I have one of those old wheel-it-to-the sink models that sit in the middle of the kitchen?  TWO days, people.  TWO.
  • Being unable to use your own toilet because the bathroom is occupied 23.9 hours a day.

….in case you haven’t guessed already…my daughter is back from a summer at my sister’s in PA.  I was happy for about five minutes and then she spoke…

Just kidding, I’m pretty sure I’m happy she’s back.  ;o)

    I love your quote of the moment. Since I’m the oldest in a family of seven siblings I can total identify with your post and that quote.

    Bring back any memories of your childhood?

    I believe it’s called “payback”.

    Ah, good times…good times.

    What-EVER!

  • Bev says:

    My sympathies! It could be worse though, at least she’s not *sign* getting religion which is what I did to drive my hippie mom up the wall in my youth. Hang in there, it won’t be long before school is back in session!

  • MOM says:

  • Pumpkin Passport 5 April 2016

    2016 stitch-along from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery

  • StoryTime Sampler 3 February 2016

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    02-03-2016

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
