Why I need a vacation

My son got his exams back. While I don't need to put him on the vocational track, he's not about to get tapped for Valedictorian.

I cooked short ribs of beef to have for dinner tonight.

I did six loads of laundry.

I planned my daughter's birthday party.

I cleaned the kitchen, right down to the turtle enclosure.

I spent about 100 minutes on the treadmill.

I ordered stuff for my daughter's birthday.

She's turning 13 tomorrow.


  1. Dude! Happy birthday to the Poppette! I will be the mother of two teens later this year, too. God help me. Is there a support group? And does it feature an open bar?

  2. Turtle enclosure? You deserve drugs.

  3. I love Miss Poppette, ya know.
    Happy day to you both!
    To all four of you!
