i"ve tried coming up with blog ideas since we've moved.  Titles like "Be Careful What You Wish For" and "How To Survive the Teen Years of Mommyhood" or "Setting Boundaries with your Besties" and "How to Get the Doctor to believe it's NOT PMS!".... and than the school shooting hit.  And I felt like griping about my life is truly selfish knowing how horrific other people have it.  Their babies went to school and NEVER came home :(  Than I began reflecting on how that's not ALL of it.  (My brain is always running 100 mph)Twin works with people that have suffered mind blowing tragedies that make a broken bone seem TAME.  Daddy is a Paramedic and has hauled bodies that have died in ways that he will never forget. And here I am wanting to moan about how mouthy my 13 year old (still is) or how adjusting to this move has had many ups and many more downs (mainly out of MASSIVE EXHAUSTION) but how nothing is more fun than living at The Parentals House out of your UHaul for a week while trying to adjust to a new site/computer system/management co.  And how once insurance hits I REALLY need to see a doctor about leveling out my mood swings.
Wed Xav came home from 4th grade with rumors that someone at the HS (there's a 3 block stretch that's the HS in the middle and K-2 grade school on one side and 3-5th grade school on the other) was coming to school on Fri to do a shootout we got a little leary.  Especially hearing how other towns have had people arrested for weapon related issues at other schools, since this tragedy happened.  Yesterday he comes in the office SCHOOLS' CLOSED TOMORROW BECAUSE OF THE SHOOTING RUMORS...

I got 2 fliers from the school AND 2 phone calls stressing this...
Austin than told me that there were rumors about the same at his middle school too. "police have investigated these rumors and found no credible threats" quotes from the local news channel... "the rumors create a signifcant distraction to our schools.."...

So the holiday break starts today instead of tomorrow...As long as the Mayan calendar isn't right, or an asteroid doesn't hit the earth,
or the sun doesn't explode today... (and I have the song from Elf when she's singing in the shower and he's sitting on the counter singing with her stuck in my head...)

A two-year-old is kind of like having a blender, but you don't have a top for it.

    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)

    I would like your thoughts, help, comments, feedback. I am not a robot!

    No matter how serious life gets, you still gotta have that one person you can be completely stupid with
