The Teenager Question Of The Year

Saturday, June 14, 2008

Every once in a while, my teenagers will amaze me with just pure stupidity.... last night, when one of my dear teenagers asked me why i was so tired and only getting 4 hours sleep???? ok... let's figure this out.... i worked 16 hour days... that left me with 8 more.... substract 1 hour drive time.... now substract 1 hour cooking and cleaning and making breakfast, lunch and dinner for myself at work...subtract the 1 hour a day it takes to get ready for said job...like shower...getting dressed, the hair... brush teeth... that left me with 5 hours.... to which the teenager asks... so you could of got 5 hours sleep... huh??? sooo why didn't i think of that... lol..ok... i realize that teenagers are sooo much different from adults... they probably could just fall asleep on a moments notice...i of coruse...cannot... so maybe i should should just set up a bed at work and save the drive time....they only have a microwave...so that saves even more time not cooking...heck...i could take a quick nap as the meal is cooking even... forget about getting ready...who needs a shower?? or even brushing their teeth or their hair?? yea... that will give me some more time to sleep... and think of it...after a couple days...i'll look and smell so bad..that they will probably send me home...lol....

the next teenager question was...mom...why are you so cranky? cranky... Cranky...CRANKY... ok...let's see here... we've done the math on why i can only get 4 hours sleep a night for the past week... now let's move on to the other area's...my job on good days, is stressful... most of the time, a good stress....just enough to keep the heart pumping and get the adreline going... but this week was not one of those good stressors... we were all working long hours...we were all cranky just from the sheer lack of sleep and the stress related to said job....(by the way, my kids have been to work with me before and know the stress it entails) so then i come home, and i have 3 wonderful teenagers that have done nothing but cook for themselves and ate it... oh...and watched tv.... and i think they have done their own laundry... cause i'm seeing a puddle of tide in the middle of the floor...of course, that came with a question from the son of why i had not cleaned it up emoticon gee...i'll get right on that... as soon as i can see straight enough to see how big the puddle really is... hello kids!!!! you are on summer break...so no school... only 1 of the 3 has a job...and it's part time... 4 hours 3-4 days a week... none of them drive...so no requirements to do any errands like grocery shopping, going to the post office or anything like that... there are presently 3 full trash bags needing takin out... that i have filled when "i" have cleaned this week... i'm tellin ya...it looks like a robber and a tornado went through here and forgot to take anything.... and let's not forget the calls i get from said teenagers asking if they can do this, if they can do that, and when can i come get them so they can do it.... and sibling 1 through 3 is irritating the other 2 to no end and can't i make them stop??? and let's not forget the night DD2 got into fight with her b/f and woke me up yelling at him..gee...i don't know why i am soooo cranky..... i'm thinking.... maybe i should ground myself....to my room.... in fact... take away all my phone priveledges...oh and the car priveledges... yea...i think that is exactly what needs to be done to teach me a lesson...tehe....

see...i guess i just needed these questions of life to figure it all out... unfortunately... at work, we have already discussed the options of just bringing our bed stuff with us so we could just catch naps in between crisis's...and decided..that would not be a good idea after all... cause the first time Mr Temper woke me up with one of his tantrums would be the last time he ever threw a tantrum...this kitty doesn't think first upon waking up...lol... and somehow, i don't think he is smart enough to bring me a cup of coffee before throwing his tantrum...unlike my teenagers who are that smart... at least...in that regard... as for the grounding...i would only punish myself by being cooped up in this mess of a home with the teenagers that have brought such thought provoking questions...lol...so... on to the next solution... run away to a paradise inland maybe???

    Sweet Sweet Playful Kitty,
Get out the claws.....I also had a rule....if you ask to go anywhere or do anything before the household chores are done.....the answer is "NO" period, No starts over no changes....If she came home and started cleaning her room I knew a question was going to come shortly. The answer after the cleaning was not always Yes either. If I picked up close off the floor of her room, they were mine for 30 days. She went shopping one Saturday and bought a cute top. She came home, tried it on and threw it on the floor.....It was mine for a month.....sadly the weather and season changed before her 30 days were up....She did not get to wear it till the next springs.... Lessons are so hard to learn....but it's good for them. I always remember that mama birds push their babies out of the nest when the time comes....Life for humans takes a bit more preparation.....So prepare them for adult hood. I would tell my DD who was 16 years at the time. I only have 2 years to teach you everything I know. At 18 the law considers you an adult. So you better know how to act like one by then...I don't envy you and your job raising children and working those hours. I wish I was there I'd line them out fou you..... Bless you. emoticon Get som rest!

    Oh, Kitty! Wow...you so need some time to yourself!
I have a DS who will be 17 in 1 month and a DD who will be 15 in Oct and they each have 2-3 assigned loads of laundry a week and 3 nights of dinner to cook assigned to them. DS has a job as a life guard and must pack his own lunches and get the bus to take him to work. They each have an assigned bathroom they are supposed to clean once a week too and are to keep their rooms clean. Their idea of clean and mine are far different but I remind them that if their chores are done they will have nothing for me to fuss about and not to even ask for special privileges if they haven't done what is required of them.
We also have the rule that there is NEVER an acceptable reason for clothing of any sort to be on the floor...if it is dirty, the hamper is right outside their bedrooms on the way to the bathroom and if it is clean put it away where it belongs.
Do they do a perfect job? Not a chance...they don't even do a good job most of the time but luckily they both stay mostly in their own little hidey holes they call bedrooms and don't too much mess up the rest of the house.
Cleaning up after themselves and doing laundry and cooking meals are life skill they MUST learn to survive once they leave our house...I am doing them no favors by doing it all for them. Told my DS I was turning him into THE most sought after sort of bachelor and some one would snatch him up for sure. Told him some day you may even have to teach your future wife to cook and clean.
Anyway...remember YOU are the parent/adult in their lives and they have a lot of free time with school out...so as long as what you are asking takes less than the 6 hours or so they spent IN school not to mention homework time, they have NOTHING to complain about.
Maybe they should all go get full time jobs and hand over the pay checks so you can hire a house keeper/cook?
Hang in their and keep posting...if nothing else reading about your life makes me feel so much better about mine, and I thanks you for that!
emoticon emoticon emoticon This too shall pass...
By the way...my kids' friends think we are the meanest parents on earth, but they are also impressed that my kids can actually do all the stuff they do too...go figure!

    I think taking away and throwing away their stuff is good.

I had a boyfriend once who used to gather all his kids stuff that was laying around and put it in the center of the living room floor and anounce, "in 10 minutes, everything in this pile is going in the garbage." Then he'd go to the bathroom. When he came out, there was usually nothing left in the middle of the floor. If there was, he threw it away.

A Playfullkitty Update

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Well...things are still crazy...been putting in 10 hour days at work... and today and tomorrow is split shifts...so most likely it will be more than 10 hours... my eye is still bothering me...though i can't threaten to rub it on anyone anymore...i've been on meds long enough now not to be contagious... the fact that my allergies are at an all time high isn't helping the pink eye at all...uhg... and now a migrane to top it all... i have been resting though... taking benedryl at night and naps during the day... which is why i'm not posting much... to busy sleeping...and as much as kitties normally love naps...i'm just going stir crazy...this kitty is too hyper to lay around that much...lol... oh well...if this is what it takes to get better, i'll do it...darn it...

thank you all for your love and understanding...each comment brings a smile to my face knowing that all around the world, someone is thinking of me...as i think of each of you...hugs to all.

    Kitty - I hear ya. I've been out for 3 days and have felt like I'm neglecting my SP duties. Sometimes you just have stuff going on that you have to take care of first. I completely understand that. I look forward to the next "Kitty wants to know" when you get back in the game. Until then, take care of yourself, get to feeling better, and have a fabulous weekend!!!

I Just Want & Need Love & Understanding

Monday, June 09, 2008

Ok..for those of you who come to read for the laughter..this one ain't it... for those that come for the light bulb moments...again..this ain't it... this is a whiney day blog...just...cause i need to get it out...and yea...i want some love and understanding...

i get up this morning... and before stepping one foot on the ground...my eyes are swollen and icky...feeling like there was sand in them... and...i feel something icky... i'm wondering...did i pee myself emoticon so i stumble to the bathroom...uhg...i look awful... then i notice something else... i did not pee myself...darn it... really..i would of preferred that....lol.... no... it's my TOM....ggggrrrr...this ever 2-3 week thing is getting on my nerves... and some kind of clue would be nice...so i clean up... put one of those gel eye masks on my eyes... there is no way around it...it's a no make up day... so i go to do my hair...but it's already so hot..no use...and do i really feel like it anyways??? NO.....my nose is running....and already getting sore from trying to catch it.... lol.... soooo.... i drive to work...that probably was not the best idea i could come up with..i can barely see for crying out loud... but i take it slow and steady...there is no way i can call off.... uhg..so at work...it was definately a crazy busy day... the first thing the other girl asks when she gets in is "do you have pink eye" pink eye??? i couldn't think of that before i come infect everyone??? so out comes the alcohol to disinfect the keyboard, copier and phone along with my desk....go wash my hands and purell them... then my daughter calls... yelling.... she blew a fuse and it's all my fault for not telling her she can't use the george forman and the microwave at the same time...huh??? i was just trying to make money to keep a roof over her head and silly me forgot to mention not to use the 2 together...gee...with working, and cleaning and parties for them to organize and shop for and family get togethers... how could i forget such a thing... so i call my brother to go flip the breaker...except he's tired and hot...and he gets really cranky when it's too hot...so again...i get yelled at.... i told him to forget it...i would leave work and do it myself...the boss gets mad cause i'm leaving...but...i'm not..i knew my brother would do it...he was just cranky and i was the one that called needing something, thus for, him letting off some steam in my ear... by now though..the other girl is going off cause she can't do it all herself and i just can't leave...in fact..i need to stay later.... ok..for one...i wasn't leaving....for another...here...let me rub my eye on you...gggrrrrr....so i get home...the teenagers are definately out of school... this time...a robber didn't stop by the house to just mess up...but a darn tornado..and like the misterious robber...it didn't take anything with it.... so i figure out what teenagers are doing for dinner...one is going out with b/f and the other 2 are demaning food... hhhmmm....here...let me rub my eye agains you all.... so i pop in a turkey roast...and i take the one to work and then go grocery shopping..... having DD2 handle everything so i don't infect anything.... and home we come...it's now time to take some benedril for the allergies, midol for the TOM, and eye antibiotic for the pink eye... oh... and finish dinner...by then...i think i'm going to bed...right where i should of stayed this morning....

sorry guys..i need the night off...i didn't sleep well last night...oh...i did forget to mention that part..i am also just a tad bit cranky...lol... anyways... i'm beat... allergies and no sleep is kicking my butt... and to be honest.... i really can't see all that great anyways...i'm almost afraid to do a spell check on this...lol...and i posting tonight would just be pushing any limits i might still have...

hugs to each of you...and i promise...i like you guys..i won't rub my eye against ya emoticon

    Awww poor dear. I think you may need to start being demanding yourself. Here is a list of demands you should make.
1. No more working sick
2. All teenagers must learn to flip breakers for themselves
3. All teenagers must take at least one night a week to fix the family meal
4. Teenagers should be capable of getting up by themselves and fixing their own breakfast (and yours too)
5. The next time someone complains about you working with Pink eye, you go home.

You need a revolution! You feel like things are unfair because they ARE unfair.

The best solution for pink eye is rest and wet compresses with paper towel that are thrown away between applications. I hope you get some rest today. Driving while blind is bad form. Take care. I can see why you needed to whine!

My Year In Review

Sunday, June 08, 2008

It's been a year since i stepped into the halls of SP....wow....has it really been that long? when i joined, i'll be honest...i did not see me making contact with others....especially to the extent i have and am... i was just here to lose weight...never did i think i would grow while i shrank.... the losing weight process has been slow thus far...but that's ok...cause i am gaining in other area's that are just as important...and i am still losing weight...so...what have i gained since joining SP...well...

i've gained movement...last year, a shower was my aerobic excercise...now...wow... i can actually do a 30 minute aerobics class...i can walk down the street.... without being dragged non the less...lol...in fact, i have even gone as far to be the one to suggest it a couple times... i also now fit in some excercise each day... even on my worse days, i get something in...whether some strength training or a some dancing while i clean... the fact is...i move each day now...

i've gained the love of water...hey..it can happen... i would go days, last year, without 1 cup of water...heck..weeks...now... i'm not only getting an 8 minimum...but now more sometimes...

i've gained a taste for real food and not salt... this one came as a big shock to me just last week in fact...wow... my taste buds are actually catching on...lol...

i gained a love for fruits and veggies...last year..i could go days without eating any... now i am actually starting to crave them...

i've gained a love for myself...when i joined...i wanted to find myself again... i will be honest...what i found...isn't a person i have ever been...i am the improved version... i am unique and wonderful...but in a good way... that might sound conceited..but honestly...i truly love myself more than i ever had...

i gained leadership...over me!!! as many of you know, i co-lead 6 teams... a couple very hyper active teams....lol... though this, i learned to practice what i preached....and that doesn't just mean the challenges i posted.... but the love i showed for them...i had to show to myself... to include the way i talked to me... it is easy for me to come to your page and tell you how great you are doing...or it's ok to have a bad day, to just pick yourself up, learn from it, and forgive yourself...because i truly believe what i tell you...i trully love and care for each of you...but...it wasn't easy for me to tell myself that....because i didn't believe in me... i've had some leadership training... though i am far from leadership material...but i have learned to use this on myself... for example...a good leader doesn't yell or scream, they sit down with the person and discuss the problem at hand...so...why was i yelling at myself...a good leader doesn't call a person names...so why was i calling myself names..... a good leader will can see the problem, but also sandwich that problem with at least one positive...why wasn't i doing this for myself?? yep...this year...i gained leadership over ME!!!

i gained soooo many friends...people who really do care about me... these are the ones that have read to this point, will say to themselves "will she ever shut up" and then laugh cause i wrote that and they did read this far to see it...lol....

This year...my goals are to up my activity...i want to be able to work out for 45 minutes straight..though 60 would be nice also...

i will keep up on my water...8 minimum...and try to push it to 12...

i'm good about getting at least 1 fruit and 1 veggie each day...this year, i'm working on getting more of each into my daily diet...

i am also going to continue loving myself...finding that me time each day... loving myself as much as i love my family and each of you....so..uh...don't panic if you see me posting love notes to myself...lol... i'll try to keep my flirting with myself to a minimum emoticon

Thank you to everyone that has made my first year the best year of my life. a huge step towards the best me possible.

    Dear Kitty, you are absolutely amazing. For some reason, I did not realize that you had 6 teams. I knew about 2. You have helped me so much over the last 9 months. You keep me laughing, and you are helping me through the difficult time that I am going through right now. You really are such a good friend to me. I miss you when you are not around on weekends, but I do know that just because you are not on threads, that you are still thinking of us and rooting us on. ( I am not complaining that you are not around, because I know that you are taking some much needed Kitty time, and that is great, and I know that you really, really need it!)

You have come such a long way in a year! Keep up the great work for many years to come, you will acheive what you came to this site to do.

Thanks for the love!
Love ya!

This weekend has been busy...to say the least...lol...and a learning experience...so thursday night i stay up late to make some homemade spa recipes....and though i only got 4 hours sleep that night...i was soooo ready come friday...so yep...at 4am, i am up and getting ready for work and packing the car for Friday nights Mother and daughter pamper night... then to work...but i realized i forgot 1 vital ingredient for the night...the bathing suit...uhg...so after work, i run home to get that...lesson one...make a list and actually look at it while packing...lol...so then off to mom's to pack up her van and away we go...we go to hotel first to get the stuff in the room, turn on air condition and then to dinner... we wanted steak...but wow... the smallest one was 9 oz..and that was for a cheapo...the smallest good steak was 12 oz...at one time...yea...i could of ate that...but i know i can't now a days...and no place to store it for another meal...so mom and i decide to split it... along with potato and then we each got a salad and roll...we still could not finish it all...wohoo for us!!! after dinner, we wanted to stop at the drug store for last minute things...the drug store was only a short walk across the street..so i suggest we walk over... my mom loves to walk... i did NOT inherit this gene...lol... i will willingly do any other excercise but that... so yea...this suprised my mom... lol...so after that we go back to the hotel... we get ice and get the priveledge to ride up the elevator with 2 very handsome and wow..well built marine men.... i learned my mom is still know what handsome and well built men are...lol.... so we get our swim suits on and hit the pool...we got in a good 30 minutes of water aerobics...wohoo!!! it felt good... i learned i really love this.... so we hit the hot tub...aaaawwwww....and then the sauna...or would of..had it been working...we learned that just cause they say they have a sauna, means you should also ask if it is a working sauna... lol.... so we go up to the room to really get this pampering on the way... so i get out the hair mask stuff i had make...uh....next lesson of the day....when you make homemade treatments with mayo in it...it's not a good idea to keep it in the car when the weather outside is 95...yuck that stuff smelled...so in the trash it went... could you see those headlines..."Mom and daughter died of bocholism of the brain after applying bad mayo mixture to hair" lol....

it was a wonderful night...and only ventured slightly off eating plan.... ok... so the chocolate was really medicable...and the skittles...well... they were our fruit...really..they are fruit flavored after all...so...it does count....right?? mom thought so...lol....

so comes today, saturday...we are pampered silly and feeling good... we go to her house for my nieces birthday party...gather the children, and hit the mall... the kids went to the inflatables room for the party, and mom and i decided to walk...yes..i said walk...lol...off our fruit...uh...skittles binge from the night before...i got each of my nieces and my daughters each a pair of really cute earrings... each pair different and fitting to them.... then it's time for pizza...mom being the good girl stopped and got herself a salad... she pays for it...except she says she paid with a 20 and the cashier gave her change for a 10.... mom swore she didn't even have a 10... 10 minutes later, she realizes that yes..she did have a 10 and she did in fact pay for her salad with it...lesson learned...sometimes it's best just to walk away and let her figure these things out on her own...saves us both being embarrassed...lol...

we had a wonderful weekend...and am almost ready for the coming week...almost...lol.... but i did have to stop and share with my friends my exciting weekend and to let you all know that i miss you all.
