What I REALLY meant to say...

This post is a tribute to Chief and her Wednesday's that I really love but am too flaky to participate in. So check her out tomorrow and here I go...

To the "friends" that rag on me for having my 84 yr. old in congestive heart failure father in law move in with me next month, when I smiled and said "I know", what I really meant to say...

"SHUT THE HELL UP!!!" Don't tell me I have too much on my plate and can't handle it. I know that! Don't you think I know that?! It is your job as "friends" to listen to me complain and cry about it, but support me in it! I love this man and will do what I can for him even if that means having an extra 6 Diet Cokes and a Xanax everyday. Please support me and give me chocolate."

To Homer that won't buy me a new computer and I say "That's ok, I understand we don't have the money", what I really meant to say...

I want it!! I deserve it!!! I have 1 kid with a hole in his head that will not heal, and 2 psychos' living here not to mention your Dad is coming and I need something to get me through it!! Gimme, gimme, gimme! I know I sound like a selfish little brat but I don't care! I WANT IT!!!

To my favorite doc Peeps who wants to put WB in the hospital this week for a hole in his head and I said "OK", what I really meant to say...

"Oh come on! It's Mothers Day on Sunday! I would rather spend the day with criminals at home that nuns in the hospital!" (Actually, I did text him and told him that and he said OK) but I just wanted to vent anyway just because I feel sorry for myself.

And last but not least...to my children whenever I smile at them, what I really meant to say...
"For cryin' in a bucket pull your head out of your rear end and get your life together! Who is going to take care of your father when he is 84 years old? Don't worry about me because I don't want to live with you either! You can just take me out to the north 40, but your Dad? He's the GOOD parent and he deserves it!"

Well, I feel better, now I will go have a cookie, make aprons for Sherri and Dawn, pop an Excedrin and have another Diet Coke. Happy Mothers Day to all of you! And if you are not a mother I would say lucky you, but that would be insensitive.

Thanks for keeping it real. and don't feel tooooo bad about the diet coke... I'm on my second 44 ouncer of the day. I try to limit myself to 3 a day... but I may not make it today.

Oh my hell!!!!! Ya, you do have too much on your plate, but I know you can do it cuz I have the feeling you are a little bit crazy.
I LOVE YOU!!!!!
I wish I lived by you. I wouldn't be able to cure the kid with the head up the rear (got some of them myself and I ain't done a dang thing to fix them)
But I would laugh with you. Steal Xanax for you.
Babysit for you so you could get away for a weekend (seriously I would, I'm a nurse, nothing scares me...except spiders)
I would hug you to death.

I want your address STAT! I can't buy you a new computer but I can send chocolate.

Happy Mothers Day to you. (and personally I hate Mothers Day. I think it's an insensitive holiday and I've been begging my coworkers to let me work their shift so I have an excuse NOT to go to church, but they hate it as bad as me)

Garden of Egan said...

Also I gave you an award on my blog.

No Queen, tell us how u really feel. No really, don't hold back.

I think personally that you have earned the computer also! Just buy it! You can't take your "savings" with you when you die anyway--so spend others money and be happy! :)

I would totally let you complain to me, but only after you make chocolate chip cookies to me! No seriously, that is the only way, and fresh out of the oven!!!

Love ya!

Ditto on the computer - you totally need it, for gosh sakes, YOU DO DESERVE IT! And tell him I said so!

Ok, so I don't think I've ever said "gosh sakes" in my life - lol!

And I'm pretty sure coke and chocolate will can get you through most anything - I think we need to start a Queen Sanity Fund to keep you in endless supply!!

Kristina P. said...

I think you should do a new computer topless fundraiser. I will be the spokesperson.

Barbaloot said...

I hope you get that computer for Mother's Day. Clearly you do deserve it. And I vote you say what you really mean to say to your kids. Sounds like they need it. My brother's and I have already "passed my parents" to one of our other brothers to take care of when they're older:)

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I love it, way to go. Does this mean you won't be able to go to many games next fall. That is a huge bummer. Maybe you can take Garden up on her offer.

Melinda said...

It really would be nice to say some of those things sometime right? I need so much chocolate to get through stuff I'm wondering if I even eat anything else...nope not much of anything but chocolate and mountain dew.

Dawn said...

Here's to chocolate, diet Coke and Xanax!! Keep up the good works...and go get yourself a new computer.

Princess Danell said...

You know...they do make tiny little pills that make most of life bearable. My F-i-L calls them "I don't give a sh** " pills. I think you have become immune to the effects of Diet Coke and chocolate. Take it up a notch! If WB's doctors really care about him, they would give you a prescription. I would send you mine, but my husband wouldn't survive if I were in the pokey. Oh, and I'm with Tauna. Mother's Day suck!

Sandra said...

'What I really meant to say' is lost on me, because I usually say what I meant to say. So, as you can probably tell, I am alone in life. ; )

You so deserve the computer. Tell Homer I said so.

Sherri said...

You are amazing...I totally think you deserve the new computer...and another quilting retreat!

Missy said...

You too have the "wounded bird" syndrome! I just take on more and more. I cannot stop! Diet Coke and xanax will see you thru it all! LOL

Delena said...

yes, you did need my sister's coke machine. Yikes though it is too big to sneak into my car. I would love to go to Vegas again though. This weather is driving me nuts.
Take care and you are a good person with a full plate!

Amy Joy said...

How can I get away with doing this? I had some what I REALLY wanted to say moments this week. This was really funny.
Thinking of you.........good things that's what I really wanted to say

Tamber said...

Emma thought she saw you the other day and got really excited. I was sad for her...she loves you. I will be doing swim camps this year, all of them. Make sure and tell her to come say hi to me.

Garden of Egan said...

I'm missin' ya!!!!
Are you hanging in there OK?
If you aren't I wanna hear about it. I'm all ears.
Give me your address so I can send ya some chocolate!

Clair Stewart said...

Hey I haven't seen you in a while and was getting kinda worried. Then I read your blog and figured things are just the same in your insane world. School will be out in a week and then you'll really see insanity. Hang in there and keep up the blogging, it gives you stress relief and tickles me to death! Thanks
