In response to a confession. That is the thing, this particular family doesn't. They barely make it as is but put themselves in more debt to shower the children with gifts. Their son once asked if we were poor because our kids don't have rooms overflowing with toys like they do. Their rooms are wall to wall toys plus a play room jammed packed with toys that they never play with. The mom was complaining recently that they still have unopened toys from 2 Christmases ago but yet still continues to buy more and more.

In response to a confession. Wow, really? That's early compared to where I live. It's been 5-8 ever since I can remember. It definitely throws a wrench in dinnertime.

Just found out our Trick or Treat is 4-7PM instead of 1-4 PM. Great, just in time to mess up dinnertime.

In response to a confession. If they have the money to do so, then more power to them!

I have seen overboard Christmas, Easter and birthdays but I have just witnessed overboard Halloween. A friend of mine goes crazy on everything. Christmas she easily spends 2 grand on each child. Easter is a mini Christmas usually spending about $500 on each child. Birthdays they receive so many presents from the parents then plus the guests opening the presents takes over an hour with 75% of it being from the parents. Halloween this year they had 3 costumes each. Friday night they went to a trunk or treat that had a costume. Saturday morning another Halloween event was a different costume and then Saturday night trick or treating was another costume.

In response to a confession. Yes, it's big here, too. Dh happened to answer the phone when they called, and he switched. The regular electric company still distributes, the other company supplies the electric (or vice versa, I can't remember). Before the switch, the supply and distribution charges were roughly the same; after the switch they were the same for three months before the rate skyrocketed and we ended up with a nearly $600 bill. It didn't help that the meter was read incorrectly. I called and the new company gave me a $100 credit and lowered the rate BUT it may take up to two bill cycles for it to reflect. (The elec company also adjusted the bill.) Apparently you have to call every three months to lock in the lower rate. Who has time for that?!? I have to call on Nov 1st to switch it back.

I'd also like to add that my dog randomly bit me while I was sleeping, hard enough to break the skin. I don't know if DH rolled over on him or what, but between having a huge fight at work, being knocked over and smashing my face into a table, getting my boobs honked by a five year old, and being bitten by a dog while I was asleep, I'm glad tomorrow is Saturday. I plan to stay in bed.

The movie that scared me most as a kid was The Return to Oz, which was the sequel to the Wizard of Oz. The scene where Princess Mombi walks around with no head and all the heads in the cabinets screamed just freaked me out as a kid. But I watched Halloween and I thought it was fine. Didn't scare me at all.

Yesterday a kindergarten student knocked me over and my face got smashed into a table. I have a cut on the inside of my lip. I'm lucky my tooth didn't get. knocked out. Today a different kindergartner reached up and just honked my boobs like it was the most natural thing in the world. One of the aides got bitten. Raise your kids right, please. BTW, when I told the mom that her kid knocked me over, all she said was, "Okay." Really????? It's not okay!

I'm just here to let it out. I'm "friends" with someone with severe emotional disturbances. She is angry at the world and makes a turbulent life for her kids because she withdraws them from every activity after she's found something new to be angry about. I'm only friends with her because my daughter and her daughter are best friends. She is really sweet and kind toward her own kids and my kids. But the rest of her is just complaints, whining, blaming, anger and ugh.
