holy children from hell

So I was at my parents place yesterday, for my nephew's birthday. Good. LORD. Not only were the children annoying, but they were horribly behaved on top of it all. All 3 of them complaining about what they got as gifts. My youngest sister and I talked about it on the way home (thank god, she decided to come with me, her bf's dad was better than she had originally thought)....even she has decided my sister wouldn't know how to discipline her children if her life depended on it, and I think her husband has given up.

I'm not going to get into my thoughts on a little smack on the butt, but I think my sisters and I turned out pretty normal and we had a lovely healthy fear of our parents. Always the thought that if I did something I might get in trouble. I think my parents whacked me once and it was one smack on the butt. That's all it took/

But I had a good time with my youngest sister, mother and my dad's mother, I decorated my nephew's cake, made the dip, etc etc, we had a good yak, had some fun.

Then today's ice rink. Holy god. Managed to fall twice in the space of about 3 minutes, once on each hip, so I went into the house and got my Yaktraks and wore them everywhere (except note to self, they are NOT a good idea on tile).

Because I would like to look nice next week for the New Years party (dare I say I might actually manage to get a New Year's kiss for the first time in 8 years? naww...let's not jinx it...), I went out to shop. I got 2 tops and I can't decide which one I should wear. Sigh. One is extremely booblicious, variegated grey tank with a flowing bottom, beautiful silver accent straps....and then the other is a bit more restrained, black satin, lace accents, also booblicious, but no spaghetti straps, fitted...

I dunno. I'm going to have to put them on with the bra I plan to wear yadda yadda and go from there. Black pants, and either a hot pink or black pashmina and I'm good to go. Will attempt to wear my contacts...but the glasses always must accompany me, I get really dry eyes.

Other than that...I had lunch with a girlfriend at the local pub, and will now get myself some leftovers for dinner and curl up in my pjs on the couch with the dooogs. Yeah. Nice evening.

LOL! I couldn't agree with you more on the kids thing... it's like modern parents have no clue how to be leader of the pack, they let the little one run ragged and then act surprised when they grow up to be delinquents.

So happy I don't have any kids. SOOOO happy. Cuz I'd get given the evil eye for smacking them in public if they ever dared misbehave!

Tell them to watch Nanny 911, she's awesome :-)

Also in PJ's on the couch, Montreal ice can go fuck itself. Had tourtiere and veggies for dinner, gonna watch a movie tonight and try not to think of Monday and the office...

Ugh...you know my parents did NOTHING to us as kids but a look, one look from either of them and that was that, you stopped whatever you were doing wrong.

These kids? OMG. Duct tape.

Oh the ice. Yeah. Not much my friend.

And I'm not officing, I'm off til the 5th of Jan. I know I was ready to hang myself in between the holidays last year, so I figured I would keep myself from wanting to do that....

Keeping myself busy cleaning & editing photos I'm majorly behind on!

if you saw pics of my xmas you saw i was surrounded by a lot of kids. they are my cousin's kids but they are so well behaved. it's refreshing because i went to see fireworks with my friend D not too long ago and her 5 and 3 year olds were nightmares. she caved into their every whim and they were just the whiniest, brattiest kids ever. it was painful to be around them.

Good luck with the new year's kiss. Does it count if i kiss my kitty. damn, i have no plans and no invites. to top it off, it sounds like a bunch of people may be headed to mammoth for nye. Double whammy of sadness.

myself said...

yes, it counts if you kiss the kitty...who knows, my pets might be the only thing I kiss that night...

sigh.

8 years.................god I hope that's not the CASE!

However.

Is Mammoth way too expensive to manage?
