Mondays Are Hell

Monday, May 10, 2010

Thanks to my good  friend over at Join The Gossip. I am enjoying a bottle of great wine she picked up for me while spending a weekend in Paso Robles.

Its been a long time since I have been able to unwind like this. So I am enjoying every minute of it.

What do you do to unwind from a hectic day?

What My Mom Means To Me

Sunday, May 9, 2010

Today is the day to show your mom just how much she means to you.

I hope everyone has a wonderful, relaxing day. My mom is one of my best friends. She has been there for me my entire life. Even though I might not  like or agree with what she has to offer, in the end she always ends up right!

I love you mom! Happy Mothers day!

Teenagers! What The Hell Is Wrong With Them?

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Finally Half way through the week.  I thought I would join the fun with the girls over at Blue Monkey Butt and post a What The Hell Wednesday. Here is a conversation with my son.

What happened to that cute little boy that was so affectionate????? Yes I am talking about my 15 year old son. When he was younger he was just the cutest kid ever, he would look at me and say "Mom, your my beeeeesssst Friend right"? I of course with my heart melting would say yes I'm your Beeeeeesssst Friend!!!! We use to sit on the couch and watch TV  actually laugh together.

I signed him up for drivers ed a few weeks ago. This past Saturday he finished his last class and is now ready to take his permit test.

Me: Oh I made an appointment for you to take your permit test.

Andrew: (Cutting in before I am even finished) You did when?

Me: May 26th its the last day of school.


Me: Yah sorry I tried every other DMV and all the appointments are after you come back from you dads, we have to go to Palm Springs. (For those of you who don't know its an hour from me)

Andrew: I really doubt that is the only appointment

Me: Excuse me if you keep up your attitude I will cancel it all together and you will just wait until August.

Andrew: WOW! MOM!!!!

I wanted to kill him at this point WHAT THE HELL! and had to just hang the phone up. I mean seriously how can he be so ungrateful? Later that night I explained to him the DMV nightmare, however he thinks I am just making up a story so I don't have to take him. WHAT THE HELL!!!!!
