1. One surefire way to cure the blues is to take a day off and spend it with your daughter, doing girly things. Took her out of school for it. That way, no needy little brother. Just her and me. I plan on do this every month from now on! Oh, and he gets his day every day. He's two. :)
2. I have committed a cinematic offense- twice. I have watched the last 30 minutes of two films before I saw the beginning. The films- Fight Club and Sixth Sense. It was an accident, really it was! I had no idea what these films were, they were just playing in a room I happened to be in! I claim innocence! Mr. Hall still gives me crap about it, especially when we are disagreeing on something. If we come to a standstill, he plays that fight club/sixth sense card. Like it's a character flaw that negates my arguments.
3. The long arm of Daddy law is now Mommy's arm too. Mr. Hall is here on weekends* so the discipline is firmly on my shoulders during the week. Any skill I did not have in terms of time outs, taking away beloved toys and counting ONE TWO THREE , is now a super skill. They don't get a way with nothing nowadays.
4. The kids are doing well, no change in behavior or temperament since the move. For this I am eternally grateful.
*The Tribe Called Hall is currently relocating to my home town. Mr. Hall is staying behind, getting the house ready for sale/working. He comes up on weekends. Me and the wee ones live full time with my parents for now. But I am very tired of this arrangement, tired and getting pissy (Hey Pissy!), we need to move out!!!! Only I can do so much, only so much I have control over. So, grrr! FIGHT FIGHT!!
That being said, I am pretty pissed off. I need to sell the house, move out of this one and move in to a new one. This will take time and DAMMIT! I am all worked up and angry. I'm itching for a fight!
SO YOU! YOU PINK FLOYD FAN!! IT'S ON!!
I wrote this in response to Earl's Post on AC/DC.
There is one CLASSIC ROCK station here, in my home town, where I have moved back to recently. And I swear to god, they are playing the same CLASSIC ROCK as they were when I left 20 years ago. In fact, I SHIT YOU NOT-the djs are still the same.
FOR FUCK SAKE
That means they are still playing the same music as 20 years ago that was created 10 years before that. Can we not evolve people!?
But then again, lately, I've been ACTUALLY LISTENING TO some of it.
and hot damn with the AC/DC and the LED ZEPPELIN. Hot stuff! Who knew?
Pink floyd though, meh. Still don't get what the fuss is. I've seen the Wall. I am deep enough to get the subtext. But really, I think Pink Floyd is lame.
I mean, yeah, I get it, oppressive school, domineering mom, drugs rock and roll and piss off because you are in a fish bowl covering the same old ground year after year.
Stereophonic bullshit if you ask me.
Pink Floyd can kiss my ass.
Let's thrown down!!
have a good weekend ;)
The comments are hot on this one!
GO NOW! READ THE COMMENTS BY EARL!!
Then you too shall be moved!
take care again :)
