Just venting...

I have to do a little yelling, and unfortunately my family has taken the brunt of my bad mood thus far.

One of my biggest pet peeves in the world is when people say they will be somewhere and then don't show up. The lady that was to come meet Chloe never called, never came. Doggone-it! Mark wanted to go somewhere today as a family and I said no because they were supposed to come over. And they didn't! I turned down family time for some people who didn't have the courtesy to make an excuse for not being here! Not to mention the afore mentioned dog made a mess on my bedroom floor while I was bleaching down the boys bedroom, and then Nathan turned around and peed all over the bathroom floor, not even close to the toilet, on purpose! Ack! So I have been in a really bad mood since about 3:00, and my poor kids have been yelled at a lot. Luckily Mark is very easygoing and doesn't take the yelling personally. It just ticks me off, people take a little interest in her, but when they find out she needs work they drop off the radar. Or don't show up. I am sure there was a perfectly good reason, but that doesn't help me any, because it is too late in the day to do anything together out of the house.

Thanks for letting me vent. Mark is letting the kids ride their bikes to the park, so the house will be somewhat quiet and maybe I can calm down. I didn't even ask him too, he just knows me really well, and when I get this grouchy and yell-y he takes the kids elsewhere and lets me simmer down a bit. What a nice guy!

That is SO annoying! I have had so many times when I have been giving something on Freecycle and people just don't show up--I mean, HELLO it's FREE!

At least you know who NOT to give the dog too! And I sure hope that you got some time to cool down....what a bummer!

Wow, you have just been having a real rough couple of days! I really hope you get to have some better days in the very near future. Church tomorrow should help - it's always good to feel the Spirit and get a bit of spiritual strength to take on the next week.

Sorry about your rough day! Poor Chloe is so close to being in a home, it must be hard to have her *almost* shuffled around. On the other hand, I was guilty of the no-show thing just last week. But I was able to get a message to the lady shortly after our appointment, and we left on good terms.

Steve and I both get really annoyed with people when they don't return calls or show up when they're supposed to. It's really disrespectful. I know that sometimes things happen, but you can always call to let someone know that you can't follow through! I hope you're able to find someone good to take Chloe :)

Mark took the kids out to the garage to do "bike stuff". The stuff didn't work, but they were out there for a good 1/2 hour, so I got a little break. Then the kids took off to the park, and I had to chase them down, I enjoyed the walk. I hung out at a friends house for a bit on the way home, and ended up making pizza for dinner. The kids finally crashed, and we are just hanging out relaxing. I do feel much better....
