    I know I've not been around to talk for a while, things have been spinning out of control with difficult child 1 and 3. difficult child 2 is my best buddy along with the Weeble (the baby's nickname).

    difficult child 3 has been melting down at school twice a week - screaming, yelling, refusing to do her work - a real witch.

    difficult child 1 was "Student of the Month", has been behaving at school, popular with his teachers and the deans - and a miserable "choose the expletive" at home. Explosive, defiant and disrespectful.

    You know, a real joy!

    husband (aka "AH") was pulling the usual drowning himself in video games and finally started "stepping up" (to a degree) when it comes to the chaos and bedlam that is mine.

    I'm flat broke, there's no way I can find a job because of the issues with school and home, and I don't like anyone (except difficult child 2 and Weebles).

    I want to quit smoking on the 5th, lose weight and get my "flabdomen" trimmed down (I have what is called a "panus" - I thought the technical term was flabdomen - lol!). This apparently is a result of being born with a double-hernia and 4 kids and will only go away with surgery. I've always had it, but now that I had the Weeble, it's got a mind of its own. Painting a beautiful picture of myself aren't I?

    Anyway - I wanted to pop on and say "hey!" and that I miss you all. I'm hoping to be getting on a little more frequently - we have 2 science fairs and a report to do on "Ancient Mesopotamia". Now catch me if I'm wrong here - isn't "Ancient Mesopotamia" a redundancy? Didn't that culture die out centuries ago? Why not just say "Mesopotamia"? But I digress...

    I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday! I miss all of you more than you can guess...

    ((((((((((((Beth))))))))))))))) I have missed you girl. I'm sorry to hear about difficult children 1 and 3. Hopefully with the end of the holidays everyone can get back to a routine. Our kids sure do much better with predictability and routines.

    I need to work on my flabdomen too! I love that term.

    We too have a science fair coming up. Something about the solar system. Anyway it's so great to "see" you. Hugs!

    And yes, I thought the same thing when Matt was studying

    Okay ....After reading TM's post about posting pictures and follwing rules like a good board member and cautious Auntie.

    Please PM me for my email so you can send me an updated picture of my little niece THERE and not HERE. ;)

    I shall then replace her picture in the onesie...:redface:
