What did I do to deserve this?

Today both kids are on my blackest of black lists.

Mommy pulling her hair out in disgust!

I am not thrilled with either of them. Let's start out with Friday, shall we? On Friday my dearest daughter, the Girl, thought it would be a bitchin' idea to take my debit card and go charge some food at the local store. She claims she told me a week ago that she was going to do this. Um, she didn't. She thinks she's told me stuff but she has that conversation with herself, not with me. I would have said "No" pretty clearly.

Instead of feeling badly, she invites friends over to eat all my food!

Later that day, whilst the Girl was in school, I went looking for my card and couldn't find it. I had no clue as to what had happened to it, since I hadn't used it in about a week. So I canceled the card. Of course, the Girl comes home, I question her, and she's got the card. The card I just canceled. Bummer. You can't un-cancel a card. Once it's canceled, it's a goner. So I'm waiting on a new card that should arrive sometime this week. So not happy with the Girl.

They are going to help her build her new Ikea Wardrobe It will get her to pick stuff up off her floor. Hah!

Moving on to Saturday, the Boy had a friend over and they were having a grand old time chatting in the dining room. My french press was sitting on the table. The Boy is an inveterate fiddler and can't keep his hands off anything. Guess what happened? Yup, he dropped and broke my french press. Coffee grounds aside, this made a huge mess. He cleaned it up, but the upshot of the tale is, no debit card, no access to my money until Monday, and no coffee pot.

Not to be outdone, the Boy had two friends over, too. The other one was in hiding, but she exists.

Yeah, um..u know that concept that helping organize a place for everything..helps keep it off the floor in a teens room?..
Seems that all the piles of *crap* on the floor is part of her (and I quote) '' SYSTEM''

As one mother to another, I feel for you!! lol

And to top it all off, there's another storm moving into your area.
I've got to stop watching the Weather Channel so often.
