Sorry you're having such a crappy day! I hope you can find a really long straw and that tomorrow is a better day!!


Hang in there it has to get better.. right?
As crazy as the college prep stuff is it all does get done and they do finally go away! My daughter is in her first year of college and although I miss her (sometimes) I am really enjoying the peace and quiet. They do come back and still want your money but hopefully the college education will take care of that someday. Wouldn't life be boring with out kids and other people and all the stupid little things that go wrong?

Having the kids leave the nest is really a flurry of emotions...you look forward to it....but there is sometimes that little ache that is there.....we have one left to go.....and I'll check out that Teen Vogue for her!
By the way....it's always entertaining to stop by here....love your sense of humor! I'm not a wine drinker (but give me a cold beer) but I can really relate! I always seem to drop one bottle of beer on the way in from the car.....smashed all over the sidewalk...almost every time....hmmmmm maybe I should stop running!

Everyone has a day like that. Just hang it there, it's always better the next day.

I order from Zappos all the time, talk about good customer service! They are wonderful if you have to return anything - no hassles, no questions....

I ordered my daughter's school shoes from Zappos this year and also had my shipping upgraded. Before I knew what happened, there was a FedEx guy at my door with a box of shoes. Now I am completely and blindly dedicated to them. Thanks for the note flat order...they'll be there quick!


LOLOLOL Some days I think to myself..."gee, only 14 years until he moves out!"


Hope you're having a better day today! (I did laugh out loud about the screw top wine, and lighting the little snowmen on fire. Well that was sort of nervous laughter.) :)


Oh, I LOVE Zappos! I've been buying from them for years, and as far as I can tell, shipping is always upgraded. You can also exchange shoes for a different size for absolutely no charge - amazing for an online store.

I hope today goes a bit better (and that you were able to get to that wine!).


You crack me up! Ya know, even when they move out, they still come back and bring dirty laundry for me to wash..nice huh!

I love Zappos..I've only ordered a couple of things, but they're great!



Oh, No! Please don't light the snowman! Things will get better, I promise!



Thanks for the laugh! I hope you are having a better day today. I love your gift ideas too, I've heard of Zappos but never been to the site, I'll have to check it out. I use to work for JCPenney's all through college and people were never happy that you had to go get in line again to get the boxes!

ooh what a day! I do hope that you can think "well I can blog about that' while you are in the middle of annoyance (is this an english word?).

I love this post and it gave me a good laugh. I can relate to the kid drama. I was having a crummy day, too and if I had a match with a long enough stick, I would have lit those snowmen myself. hahaha

Feeling better now, though! I hope you are, too.


Oh gosh, between your post above about the hand warmers and this one, I'd say you are due for some really lovely days. I love your little snowmen, espcially the one that is tipping his hat. He certainly has brightened my day!

Love your little chickadee post too!


Oh gosh, between this post, and the one up above about the hand warmers catching fire, I'd say that you are due for some really lovely days. I love your snowmen, espcially the one tipping his hat. He's certainly put a smile on my face!

P.S. I love your litte chickadee post too. So glad that all turned out well for him.
