So I forgot to do the whines thread this morning, so that's my first whine for the day.

My second is that my DH has to work until 7 or 8 tonight--he leaves at 5:30, so that puts him home at 8 or 9... which doesn't give him much time home.

My kids' room is a freaking pig sty, despite my being after them to get it cleaned up. I'm about to just start throwing stuff away. It makes me angry that they never do what I ask/tell them to.

And I forgot to take something out for *&^%$# dinner!

OK... that is all...

I feel better now.

I have an idea for your daughters' room. Pick up everything that's not in the proper place and put it all in trash bags. They have to "earn" the things back by keeping the rest of what's left in their room nice and neat. They can get one item per day if they keep it all neat. If it's not neat, they get an item taken away again. If most of the stuff is clothes, they'll eventually get tired of wearing the same things over and over again and hopefully keep the room clean. And if the stuff is toys, they'll eventually want to play with them and hopefully keep the room clean. Also, it'd be a good time to pare down their belongings a bit if they need to be.

As for me, I don't have any whines. I've been waiting for this day just so I could do my Wednesday Woohoos! First, we finally got the A/C in the truck fixed so now we don't have to roast anymore. We had to turn it off the other day because we were cold-- it was awesome. Second, our child support drama with the ex-wife is over! Any back support that the court said he owed because he didn't pay through the court is now null and void. Since the lady at the court house said he technically has to pay $80 a week, we started paying that instead of the $60 we had been paying. That way there will never again be a question of back support. That black cloud that's been hanging over our heads is gone. Phew! Third, my sister is coming to visit in two weeks!! It turns out that DH has known since his b-day in March but she wanted it kept secret to surprise me. I haven't seen her since October 2005 and she obviously hasn't met Alisha yet. I can't wait!

Okay, so it was cold...I got over it.

So it was rainy..I got over it.

Last night/today it SNOWED!!! Luckily by the time I got home the rain has melted it. We're right on the freezing line. The next week is going to be a pain in the you know what!

It's April for goodness sake!!!
