Can you help me? I'm BENT!

Those of you who know me know that I am a pretty happy, optimistic person. The words bubbly, cute, silly and fun usually apply to me. But today I am totally pissy! Yes, I am! And I have created a list of:


1. Potty trained three-years-and-10-months old daughter suddenly thinks the use of the toilet is optional. This is not a random go-in-the-backyard kind of thing, but a 4 or 5 time a week needs-an-emergency-bath kind of thing. Eww.

2. My fridge smells bad. Real bad. (But on a positive note, I guarantee that above mentioned potty-impaired daughter had nothing to do with it)

3. Last night, I made an impassioned speech to my fellow commission members, being empowered, brilliant and 100% right, and no one changed their mind. Nope. No one. I was the lone wolf. And I think they think I'm shrill and witchy instead of brilliant. What is up with that?

4. My gas light has been on for two days, and direct deposit doesn't make it in until tomorrow. MUST...NOT...USE...CREDIT..CARD...HOLD ON!!!

5. Fake nails growing out -- make me look leperous.

6. 2006 may not really be the year of the moderates, and I fear that the ultra-conservatives will continue to rule and reign. I actually read a debate about whether public education should exist. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE, AND WHY ARE THEY BREATHING MY AIR?

7. My cute 7 year old, who has a rage thing going on (I secretly call him Mr Furious) displayed his anger control problem in front a new friend of mine, who may have gossip-like tendencies, who hung out on my lawn for an hour yesterday while I was supposed to be doing laundry, saying things like, "Wow, I had no idea he was so angry..."

8. I fear my laundry is breeding like rabbits, and it's starting to smell weird (see #1 and #7).

9. Just realized that I have had The Corpse Bride from the RedBox for approximately one hundred days. This may be the reason there is little money in the checking account.

10. Two-and-a-half words: Scout-O-Rama.

So, I am now actually feeling a little better, and may actually post a follow-up 'Reasons to be Happy' list in a few days. Thanks, blog that no one reads, for letting me vent.

Wow, if you would have put Scout-O-Rama first, you wouldn't have needed any other reason to be "all bent"! Brrrr...

Hee. As for your impassioned speech to you fellow commission members, which apparently fell on deaf, ultra-conservative ears... SPEAK it, sister! *chest thump to peace sign* Solidarity!

As for shrill and witchy, well, look how far Hilary's gone with thoe attributes! Oh, not quite the role model you were looking for? Well... huh. I'm out.

Hee. And lose the fake fingernails. Nothing is worth looking leperous. NOTHING, I say!

I totally agree about the Scout-O-Rama thing. Also, if you've had "Corpse Bride" that long, chances are you have some of those really annoying songs buzzing around in your head 24/7. THAT may have contributed to the problem as well. And another thing: thinking that no one reads your blog is a BIG mistake. I check it every day. And if there's nothing new, I just read the old stuff. I was getting really tired of playing that Chutes and Ladders game.

Other comments:
1. Lola wasn't potty-trained until about 3 yrs. 10 mos. I about went insane.

2. You should have had those people in the boutique last year give you a fridge freshener. For free. Mwahahaha! Now I only have to clean the thing out once or twice a year! See them this year.

3. Next time, take me to your meeting. I will stick by you. Because you are brilliant and 100% right.

4. Gas is expensive. I am feeling that as I drive to Salt Lake two to three times a week. Is there a reimbursement vehicle in place for PTA?

5. I meant to tell you last week that your nails looked very nice. Now, I'm not so sure.

6. Grrr.

7 & 8. The person you need is Nanny McPhee.

On the bright side, California is finally swinging to the middle. Or seems to be. We shall see.

Well, I'm a couple of weeks late with a comment, and I'm sure you're on to the happy list by now :o) but I got here only today and I have to agree with DaltonGirl that you are brilliant and 100% right. Just keep on saying it . . . and eventually they come around.(Remember that LAC meeting where I just had to point out that I'd been opposed to a certain bill from the start?!) Love you!

P.S. to DaltonGirl, make sure that that lame PTA treasurer is getting you the Request for Payment Forms for mileage reimbursements! :o)

Yup. Sometimes, I have over a hundred reasons to be "all bent." But when I feel like that, I do yoga. Very calming. you should try it somtime. :)
