Would you like some cheese with your whine ma'am?

I am in a whiny mood, so please pardon my rantings and ravings today.

Would you like to know how many times I have had to wipe a snotty nose today? What do you mean no? Come on, join in the fun. I have three children with runny, snotty noses. I have spent the majority of my day trying to wipe up the snot. Annie runs from me as soon as she sees the tissue. Izzie actually tries to blow her nose, but not into the tissue. Drew just fusses at me about not wanting to blow his nose. And when he does, we go thru 5 tissues. It's all truly disgusting. I have been wiping snotty noses for what seems like five months now. Every time they get better, it starts all over again.

The decibel level is my house at this very moment is much too high. I have had to remind Megan from the moment she got up this morning that we "don't yell in the house". Bet you can't guess what she's doing now? Come, guess. Yes, yelling. She has NO concept of a quiet inside voice, unless she is at school. I can verify that, as I volunteer in her classroom every other week. When she is there, she is polite, quiet, pays attention, respectful even. She is NOT that child at home. (Sidebar~I put the kids to work setting the table, and then banished them upstairs to play in their playroom. It's now eerily quiet up there. Wonder what they're plotting).

Oh, did I mention that it SNOWED AGAIN today? For crying out loud, I've had enough. I know I live in Maine, but the calendar reads Spring, and I am ready for Spring, damn it.

Ok, I've ranted enough. Thanks for reading. Send me love, will you?
