Yesterday Butch tells me "Why do you have to b*tch all the time? It's EVERY DAY AT LEAST ONCE A DAY!!"

Today he got the answer - "It's VENTING not b*tching. It's what girls do."

I have four girls that I can vent to.
1) TWIN. Who lives 9 TIME ZONES AWAY. She was the one I could call up 24x7 when I had a bad day. And now I can't.
2) Mogie. Heart Mogie. But she has 4 kids and a fiance and two exhubbys and a lot of drama on her plate already. I call her quite a bit. But I like to give her a break. She lives on the East Coast - which is three time zones away.
3) Roofie. Little Sister. She lives two (three?) time zones away. She said I can call her whenever - but unlike Twin & Mogie she DOESN' pick up whenever I call. She has school and Seff-meister, and they keep pretty big. And since she doesn't have job or school at the moment than she likes to nap.
 4) Mommy. I love my mommy, but 89% of the time she doesn't get it. She was raised in a different time period, and some things she just doesn't understand.
I work as a landlord. So I can't become friends with my tenants. I can chat with them when I'm out and about, but the who's and what's-it's I'm chatting about has to be limited because I like to keep my job and loose lips would make me unemployed.

So anyway I am pissed off and bawling and yelling at him. "I'M NOT B*TCHING. I'M VENTING. I HAVE NO FRIENDS THAT LIVE HERE AND THE FOUR I WOULD VENT TO AREN'T ALWAYS AVAILABLE WHEN I NEED THEM. YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE MY BEST FRIEND. AND WE NOW HAVE FOUR KIDS LIVING WITH US. I'VE NEVER RAISED TEENS BEFORE SO IT'S A NEW EXPERIENCE FOR ME. WITH FOUR KIDS OUR 'ALONE TIME' IS NOW PRACTICALLY NON-EXISTENCE. SO EXCUSE ME IF I NEED TO UNLOAD/VENT/ BOUNCE FEELINGS OFF SOMEONE AND THAT SOMEONE IS YOU! IT'S NOT MEANT TO SEEM LIKE B*TCHING!!"

Oh I understand. I really really do. 9 years of marriage and now 9 hrs from my TWIN and my neatest friends. And I'm stuck in a one room hotel for almost a month with mominlaw who I'd almost as silent as him. She is also NOT the same

    RANTINGS
    FROM

    CORNER.....

    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)
