Moments I want to remember...

I am going to loooose it and it isn't even my HOMEWORK

I am about to have a mid-life crisis, breakdown, something over homework. I can’t take it anymore, I am truly going crazy. The girls have been bringing home an obscene amount of homework every night for the last few weeks and I am losing my mind. First of all, I don’t ever remember having this much homework in my life, not even in high-school or maybe I just never did it, I don’t know. My kids have no time to play and relax, breathe and I can’t stand it. I am so frustrated, I mean, for the last two weeks we have been up until at least 10, but some nights until 11 and it CRAZY.

As you can tell I am really bothered by all this and there could be a couple things adding to my frustration;

#1 trying to quit smoking (I have had a few breakdowns, but I am still trying)
#2 no time for ME
#3 not having all the answers( the teachers send home worksheets with about 20 problems and nothing to find the answers, WTF…kids told me they are just suppose to know it, well how in the hell am I just suppose to check it????? This really fires me up!!!!!!!!!!)
#4 no 11 yr old should have a project due, a test to study for, 2 pages of social studies, three pages of math, two sheet of science, 1 page in English workbook and a packet of reading to do in ONE night, ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#5 I have to keep my composure and be supportive and pretend like this isn’t crazy so my daughters aren’t frustrated or asking questions, for them it just is and they don’t know different

So, this is my life go to work come home, review homework list, cook dinner, sit and relax for all of five minutes and start on assisting with homework for the next 3-4 hours, then tuck the kids in and get them ready for bed, everything put away and try to find a few minutes for myself before going to sleep and waking up to do it all over again. I mean I used to look forward to the weekends, but they are even sending homework packets of 50 pages home on Fridays too.

I think I am also irritated that 70% of the kids have a non-working parent in the home which if I was home at 330 instead of 530 it could make a big difference. I know I chose to have them on my own and I have dealt with this for all these years. I am so scared for next year will hold when they go to middle school. Please send me a sanity pill or something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HELP!!! (oh, Rich, no way in hell I can even take one class right now if things are going to continue like this!!!!! I am proud of you though regardless, good job, please drive down and HELP my kids!!!!)

So, I always wonder about this, but after last night I think mine is pretty good. I was getting ready to go to bed last night when I had a feeling, not a good one. So, I ran downstairs to go out and make sure my car was locked, it wasn’t. I also remembered my camcorder was in there and wanted to get that out. Early when I came home from the grocery store I couldn’t grab it cause of all the bags and thought, it’ll be fine, it’s been in there for a month, but something didn’t feel quite right last night. Well, what do you know this morning as I was racing out the door to my car, I noticed my door was open. I didn’t think anything of it, other than; I didn’t close it hard enough. I hopped in the car and went to plug up my phone and noticed the little compartment was open and everything dumped out and my charger was gone. So, now I am suspicious and I immediately get out of the car to search for my book of cds, waaaahhhhhhh, they are gone. ALL my freaking cds have been got, gone, bye-bye and I am so sad!!!!! Oh, they took my lighter too. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am really not happy. The good news is I got my camcorder out with Christmas morning tape in it out. HAAA HAAA, you didn’t get my camcorder or my memories F%$^er!!!!!!

Oh well, life goes on and I will buy new cds!!!! I am happy, blessed and my kids and I are healthy!!!!!!!!!!
