Isn't that what Ralph Kramden used to say to Alice, his wife on The Honeymooners? (BTW, I only know this show because my dad used to watch it when he was young and he would talk to me about it when I was younger. I have seen some reruns but I am definitely not old enough to have watched the show the first run).
Ok, now that we cleared that up.
Man though, this is how I felt yesterday however rather than saying it to others, I was thinking of going to the moon myself for a much needed break!
I so needed a time out yesterday and couldn't take one to save my life. Both Monday and Tuesday this week were rough. I think part of the reason yesterday was rough was because little beanpole did not get a nap so therefore he was a bit more cranky and pushing more buttons than he *normally* does. And it was so beautiful out here in the Pac NW, no rain, no wind, sunny and 50 which is like a tropical island for those of you that are still part of the Snowpocolypse and do you think he would want to play outside in our backyard, heck no! Instead he wanted to turn on the water in the kitchen sink, use the spray spout which subsequently got stuck and sprayed water all over! That was fun to clean up. It is actually pretty funny now that I think back on it but at the time, not so much.
And little Miss K, of course she is as cute as all get out, but now that she is mobile, I have to try and keep her as contained as possible which is not a very easy task. As it is I have gates up everywhere but even with gates blocking her from going room to room, she still has so much room to roam in the rooms we are in at the moment. And she is attempting (and succeeding at times) to get into everything. I have tried to put things up as much as possible, locks on cabinets, only kid friendly things within reach but she gravitates to the one thing, the one thing that is left out. The one thing left down this time (although kid friendly): her fruit puff snacks and needless to say they didn't stay in the container for too long once she found them. Dumped'em all over...and who is that I hear running into the family room? Beanpole......crunch, crunch, crunch...
I think I swept and vacuumed no less than 3 times yesterday. And that is a light sweeping and vacuum day.
Ohh and lets not forget the 12 year old tween who likes to push buttons too. In this case computer buttons, that he knows he is not suppose to be using at the moment. He got grounded from using the computer this past weekend for a little bit of an indiscretion but for some reason he only heard that he was grounded from Facebook when I know darn good and well I said the computer as a whole unless he had homework.
Funny how they only hear what they want to hear. It is that selective hearingitus again. Its become an epidemic. And he likes to push buttons on his stereo too which just gives me a headache. If I hear Katy Perry "Fireworks" one more time, I think you are going to have to check me into an asylum.
No really, it is that bad! He plays it over and over and over again.
Anywho, when all was said and done, I think we all crashed about 8, which is unusual on most days for me (not necessarily for the kids)...and then of course since I went to bed so early I was up at the butt crack of dawn this morning writing. I tend to get up around 430-5am normally but I got up this morning around 3am. Yikes!
And now I am beat! I need nap!
But the day is still young..still so much I need to accomplish.
Get me a caffeine drip, STAT!
