You previous posters must not live in a snow zone. There's no such thing as a 'set schedule' in the winter. You don't know until you watch the news in the morning whether there's school or not. Well, I don't because I have no smartphone. I guess there's a school closing app you can get that tells you sooner. Like 4am. Because 4am is a really good time to call and arrange a sitter for 7am. Amitrite?

I would be really, really mad if my kids' school ever did that (in previous post). Unpredictability is the hardest thing to deal with as a working mom, but so far the only sources of unpredictability have been the kids getting sick and my husband's schedule (this was quite enough I might say, if the school started adding to the list it might just put me over the edge).

I'm thankful I get to be a SAHM, especially for last minute things that are sprung me. DD's school decided TWO days was enough notice to tell us the is no school today. The calender says there is supposed to be school today, but tomorrow they're supposed be off. They switched it so that they have today off, but go tomorrow instead. I feel bad for parents who have to work and weren't given enough notice so they can make alternative plans. We're in a military town, a lot of us don't even know someone well enough yet to babysit and have no one to support so some people's options are to take off work or pay more in daycare cost than they'd get for working for the day.

This morning I discovered that my 7 year old will do anything you ask without complaint if you tell him Captain America would do it. Score.

Called out sick today. Have a sore throat and upset stomach and don't feel like covering for my lazy coworkers today.

I am an ungrateful wife and mother. I just wanted to be left alone for my birthday. First one since my mom died and so I just wanted to stay busy and not think. Instead hubby got me strawberry shortcake, which I had to slice up the strawberries and serve everyone. He got me a wire whisk cause he knew I needed one. Except I needed a plastic one to use in my pans.And he got me a coffee cup. Boy, thanks dear for a cup that in a week you will bitch at me for since we supposedly have too many anyways.Why is it for MY birthday I can't just be left alone. That would have been a much better present. If he had just treated it like a normal day I would have been fine.Yes, I am aware I sound like a spoiled brat. Yes I know I should be grateful he at least acknowledged it but spending the day with my head in a hole would have been much easier.

I should have known better than to get my hopes up. I'm not pregnant. My period just thought it'd be fun to be 4 days late this month :-(

ds will be 14 in june. he wants to get his lip pierced. i don't mind if he does. he has his ears pierced. dh wants to argue about it. he said he'll turn into a punk. really dh? as opposed to what? a pothead & alcoholic like you? my 23 yr old dd & 13 yr old ds know their dad is an addict. they also know i'm not and have decided smoking weed and drinking is not for them. i'm strict about good grades, them being good people, them loving God, and being clean & sober. so far so good. kiss my @ss dh!
