I'm so tired that I HAVE TO SHOUT

So here's the news:

My kids each had a friend over last night AND EVERYONE SURVIVED.

Last night a storm knocked a huge branch off a tree in the back yard AND IT MISSED THE NEWLY INSTALLED AIR CONDITIONER BY A MERE SIX INCHES, YET NOTHING WAS DESTROYED.

Today when I was taking the kids home, I couldn't get out of my driveway because some asshole had parked a van across the end of it, blocking my access to the street. I left my car in park and headed over to the van to investigate. Surely the asshole who parked his van there left the keys nearby? And then the van's owner came running up with the keys, and told me I could move his truck. I told him, unh unh, nope, it was his truck and he should move it. And that in case he didn't understand these niceties, preventing someone from driving out of her driveway was not considered the done thing. And he and I exchanged a few sentences that were quite strongly worded, AND YET I DID NOT KILL HIM.


  1. You are a model of civilized restraint.

  2. That was some storm, wasn't it?

  3. He lived? You're losing your edge.

  4. Well, I'm glad you showed some restraint and didn't kill the asshole, because I'm pretty sure you're not allowed to blog from prison.

  5. You should have. No jury would convict you.

  6. Ohhh, I sooo understand....I live in the inner city and have the only drive way for blocks and blocks and I live 3 doors from a church and school. I get sooo pissed!!! Not to mention the number of neighbors...all of them...who use it for their turn around. I really love it when I have to wait in line to enter it while others abuse it. That being said, I am very glad to have off street parking.

  7. You're a baddass and you love it.
