Mostly, because I am a tired mommy and I think I things to rant about then forget. There are all kinds of things, but lets talk about the reason for the season - Christmas - and all its associated work. And how much I can't accomplish. Because Thanksgiving was late. What have I made you ask? NOTHING. OK, I made some carmel corn for some of the teachers (like the gymnastics and swimming and karate and all the specials the kids get at school. Not the main teachers.) and I added a 10$ gift card. Is that enough? That is part of the problem. You want to appreciate everyone, but crap, I am going broke. I was going to make all these ornaments. Hardy fucking har. I made one myself and Beavis made snowman ornaments for her teachers (instead of popcorn. The school wont let them have fun things to eat at their parties, so no fun things to eat for the teachers. For their Christmas , I mean Holiday party they had cuties (clementines), fruit snacks and apple juice. I jug for 25 thirsty kids. I hate apple juice, it is just junk, don't bill it as healthy you know. Anyway, I was concerned it wasn't enough, (and it wasn't) but the PTO woman assured me the cups were small and they could get water from the fountain. WOW, isn't that a great way to celebrate? Hey, I can easily get into the ranting swing of things YEAH!
OK, you know what I hate, bloggers that think they are cute with these words: anywho, whilst, bestie, cray cray, prezzie, brekkie. Know what else? Sponsored posts. Especially the ones where you think you are reading some heartfelt story and it ends up an ad for Visa. And in my other life, I read craft and sewing and art blogs and I hate bad ideas. Yeah, I know, maybe someone thinks they are not bad ideas, or bad patterns or just plain ugly clothes. But they are. I am here to tell you I have seen some horribly ugly stuff. And how do those women do it all? I know this is a popular cry out there. You an plainly tell I am not the best blogger. I don't mind doing it, espeically this blog because there are no photos or links, it is basically me bitching in stream of consciousness, but it is not more importannt than sleeping or watching a show with my husband at night or taking a bath togethe. Or spending time with my girls (which, despite m lack of blogging, I don't think I do enough of). Do these crafty women have super nappers (that is a another rant, my saintly husbnad is the only napper in this house) or do they stay up all night? I have snacks to make, laundry to do, books to read out loud, chocolate to buy and eat and Elf to move around, dogs to feed (remind me to rant on how dumb I am that I switched out dog to expensive raw food then went and got another dog. Doubled my food costs to 100$ a week. Yeah, this Ranting Mommy is a knucklehead.) and checking accounts to balance. And my Christmas cards? Well, some went out last week but I ran out of stamps and need more to send the rest.
One more unrelated rant. We have no groceries. I mean, no eggs, no greens, no GF crispy chicken and no whipping cream for hot chocolate. No brow sugar, no apples, no cucumbers, no broccoli. It is the 23rd and I have to go to the market. I am an idiot. Now, if I hadn't spent so much money earlier in December on stuff for us (sales get me every time and we need shoes and coats and clothes, right?) I wouyld take advantage of the Whole Foods personal shopper who just shops then brings it out to your car. How lovely right? Except since we have no food and a potential $500 bill, that is a 100$ charge for the personal shopping. Yeah, I still have a gift to buy. Remind me to rant about my lack of fiscal responsibility.......
Oh and about the bumfucks that live beind me and their cheap ass, ugly ice rink.
