Yes, I know this is my 3rd post of the day. I just haven't said anything in a few days... and there were a few things I wanted to share (marshmallows) (critters) (advice from Twin).

I called Twin to get advice on TimmyJ. Ok, so I wanted a shoulder to whine, bitch and moan on about it. She instead took a stick and beat me about the head and shoulders with it. The truth can be a bitter realization, but in our family we've never been known to beat around the bush on things. We just tell ya. And you can deal with it. Why lie to you, when the truth is that much more entertaining??

I was whining about having a 39 year old brother-in-law living with me. He gets child support garnished from his job. So even working 32 hrs a week (with a one hour round trip walk to get there) he's bringing take-home $300 every two weeks.  That's not enough to support a person on their own on.

Here's some questions I have to ask myself:
Is this the battle I want to stake my life on?

What is his role in my life?
What season is he at in his life?
Is it going to change?
How can I deal with issues the way they are now?

I can fix me but I can't fix him.
It's all about Realistic Expectations.
I CAN FIX ME BUT I CAN'T FIX HIM.

Even though I'm not going to like it, I have to keep my mouth shut.
It's difficult.

TODAY I'M GONNA CHOOSE TO NOT BITCH AT TIMMY EVEN THOUGH I WANT TO RUN HIM OVER WITH MY CAR.

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
