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!
