It happened again!

The shit hit the fan.  I lost it!  My kids . . . . .

They can't do anything!
They are so fricken disobedient right now I just wanna. . . . . .

Why can't they just do as they are told without questioning and begging and pleading?

Over an hour ago, I asked everyone to do their chores.  DD7 has to fill and empty the dw.  She came up once for her coloring pages and I told her no.  When she was done she could color.  Well, somehow she got passed me with them.  And when I went downstairs the dw was empty but it was not being filled.  She was coloring.  I believe I let it slide once and figured she was caught so she'd keep at the chore.  Well, no such luck.  I hung THREE LOADS OF LAUNDRY!  Then I headed down to start on supper - lasagna.

What do I find??? SHE'S COLORING AGAIN!!!!!  SHE'S DONE NOTHING ON THE DISHWASHER!!!!!!  At first I didn't get upset.  I told her she was being disobedient to me and disobedient to God.  But my angry started building and building.  I started remembering all the infractions, all the complaints, all the outright disobedience from the day.  I remembered doing things for them - like taking them to a play day I didn't wanna go to.

Then I found their ant jars in the house!  I had specifically stated ALL ANTS STAY ON THE DECK OR OUTSIDE!  I sent DD7 away with hers.  IT TOOK HER FOREVER TO COME BACK!  When she did come inside again she went to her room to do something else rather than return to the dw chore!!!!!!!  I LOST IT!!!!!  ABSOLUTELY LOST IT!

I started throwing dishes out of the dishwasher, on to the floor and into the sink!  I started screaming and shouting at the top of my lungs at my five children.  And in the midst of my tirade my 3yob decides to COLOR ALL OVER THE KITCHEN FLOOR!!!!!!!!!  CAN HE NOT SEE HOW MAD MOMMY IS ALREADY!!?!?!?!?!??!

Dishes continue to fly while DD5 and DS3 get a wet cloth to clean up the boys' mess.  I loaded the dw in less than 5 minutes and had it running.

I expect a lot of my children.  I don't expect them to load the dw in under 5 minutes, but I expect it to take LESS THAN A FRICKEN HOUR!

At one point we expected first time obedience.  You are asked, you say yes, mom and then you do as you were asked.  I don't even notice anymore when they say no or just ignore my request.  THERE NEEDS TO BE SOME CHANGES!!!!!!

Not feeling like a very good mom right now.  DD8 said she wanted to move away from me and I agreed; I didn't wanna be close to me either.  I think I've cooled down some now; off to see if supper is burning on the stove.

Until next time,

Lovely Lioness, more lioness than lovely.

Kids Fighting

Boy does it get old! I have 6 kids so, there are disagreements of course! It gets so so old playing referee! My second and third sons love to pick on the oldest girl (younger) and make an attempt to bully, insane! They try to gang up on her and she is just so sweet! (Slightly annoying mind you, but sweet.) She has the heart the size of Alaska. I feel so bad for her. Sometimes she just asks me, "why don't they like me?" Breaks your heart!

aha moment!!

Why are people so judgemental?

People need to learn that you cannot judge someone until you have walked in their shoes! Why can't people just respect when you are tired and irritated and even though it sounds like you are bitching every time you see them that maybe- just maybe there are things in your life you are trying to sort out, get your mind and sanity back together and get back on track?

Doesn't everyone have their "off" kind of days?

On the other hand, there are those people who have judged you and you cannot do anything but judge them back. The more you learn that they have said/done the more it pisses you off.

Why can't people understand that in this world there are more than one way to get from point A to point B? The road may be right for one, not for the other, and could be a possibility for others too. Just because you have had it this way or that way does not set in stone for everyone.

Just get over things people. If something is said or done or written just get over it, over look it or hit the ignore or fucking delete button! If it's something you can live with and overlook so be it.

Getting off the soapbox now... GRRR

Kitty kitty

The kittens are six weeks old today. I dropped the first one off tonight to the new owner. I asked the woman if she could show me how to tell apart the girls from the boys. Dummy me couldn't figure it out! She showed me the difference. Cool! On the way home I asked the kids to "bring me all of the other kittens as soon as we get home, I want to sex them." Oh soooo not right!

Welcome to Our Wacky World!

Are you ready for a WILD ride?

What's this all about anyway?

Who would name their blog with such a name as this????

Well, we would. There are a bunch of us. See all our names on the side? See that they are pseudo-names? Yeah, we don't want you to know who we really are in real life. But trust me.

We are moms. We are wives. We are friends. We are in numerous relationships.

We needed a safe place to vent, to say those things that we can't say to the faces of those we love or those we dislike.

We have strong opinions. And we want to share them. We don't want a lot of flack from those we KNOW who think their opinions are more important than OURS! We've been told to "be nice" on Facebook. We "hold back" on our own blogs for fear of hurting feelings. We don't want our parents to read what we really feel and think.

We wanna talk about sex, or the lack thereof. We need to talk about PoOp and puke. There are other feminine manners we would love to spout off about but can't in the "public" world of the internet. So here, where no one knows who we are, we can say WHATEVER WE WANT! An open slate. Whatever floats our boats.

Will we use language? Probably a little - see the title of the blog???

Will we "bag on others"? Maybe.

So, in the next little while you will meet the authors. I hope each will introduce herself, and give you some vague details. And you'll get to know us a little more each time you see a post.

Please bear with us as we find the theme / design that we like and work out the kinks and such things.

Until next time,

Lovely Lioness
