Thursday Thirteen - It ain't happenin'!

***This is an announcement from the Christie is a Mommy Emergency System! This week's Thursday Thirteen has been interrupted by the appearance of three little monsters... two of which are home from school on Spring Break. Your regularly scheduled Thursday Thirteen will return next week when Christie can again think straight long enough to concoct an appropriate list of Thursday Thirteens.***

I tell you what, each year the girls get more rowdy. They have been wild-eyed demons this week. Thank goodness that the week is almost over and the big girls will be back to school on Monday. Unfortunately, there are only like 5 more weeks before school is out for summer. Looks like I'll have to throw them outside for the summer months in order to keep any shred of my sanity. LOL!

I haven't been able to write a single word in the two books that I'm working on. I can't think straight when they are all screaming, fighting, tattle-telling, begging for something, or arguing over the tv remote. Then, of course, you must throw in the fact that for some reason the older two must really enjoy hearing the yougest squeal at the top of her lungs. Therefore, they are always doing something to her in order to get that result numerous times throughtout the day.

Too bad it's only 10am... I could use a nice shot of liqour to make it through the rest of the day. Maybe it's time for me to utilize the lock on my bedroom door so that I can hide for a while. LOL!

I hope the rest of you are having a more enjoyable week. I'll be busy tomorrow getting the brakes changed on my van, buying this year's car tags, grocery shopping, and running errands; all with three bratty girls in tow. LOL! Please wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed that I don't end up sitting in a corner, hugging my knees, while rocking and chanting, "No more. Please, no more!" :-)


  1. Do what I do.....spike your coffee, lol! Irish Creme or Kahlua would work great....takes the edge off too....just not to many or you'll be slurring by noon.

    Hope it gets better for you, I remember those days, now I just have 1 left at home to drive me insane....and he does a wonderful job at it, too.

  2. I love you christie.

    Enforce your "supermom" powers.. lol

    :) Hang in there :) LOL


  3. I like Stephanie's solution - isn't it Winston Churchill who is frequently quoted regarding drinking when ever we feel like instead of by the clock???
    Tell those girls to be quiet - I need something to read at swim practice this summer!!!
    Waiting for my amex to get paid off so I can buy the new one!
    I am sure there will be an hysterical book down the road and the heroine will have three daughters...

  4. I'm there with you Christie! It seems every time I take the time to write all hell breaks loose over here.

    Do you have a laptop? Maybe you can head outside (if it's nice enough) and site in your yard for an hour (or however long your battery lasts.) Another thought is to kick them outside to a bit. Let them run off their energy while you have a little peace and quiet for a bit.

    If all else fails you can always wait until your husband comes home and either run away to an internet cafe, library, or with above mentioned laptop. You could also send your girls out on a "Special Night with Daddy" for a bit.

    Just some ideas of the top of my head. Honestly, I've never used any of them except for the kicking my kids outside, but depending on the weather and ground conditions it doesn't always work.

    Ok, that's all for now. I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone with dealing with a case of the crazies.

    (Sorry, I didn't mean for this to be quite so long. *blush*)

    Take care!
