don't even get me started with the taxi driver thing! lol I have a 12 and 11 year old that always seem to make plans with their friends (who each live on opposite ends of town) at exactly the same times.

this year was teaching them a bit of self-sufficiency - riding bikes to Aikido class, actually walking (imagine that!) to places they need to get to.
so thats lightened the load a bit.

when did that 'parent taxi service' happen anway? the only time my parents would give me a ride was if I needed to visit the emergency room. lol

Cool Stormdragon. The away time left your typing skills all over the place, you must have had a great time. Still under the influence?

Sharon, tell you what, come over to Canada during our cold months and enjoy -40 Celcius (-40 F). Then when it is -10 Celcius (14 F) we think it is warm and wear T-Shirts. Oh and that temperature, that is without wind chill. Wind chill make it even more colder.




Dereck, ny typing skills were crap to begin with, people complain about them to me all the time when they see how I just hunt and peck with two fingers. The cruise only made them worse. Yes, I'm under the influence of anger and frustration that girls today are only interested in guys who are like another girlfriend, not a real man, in the words of my hero R Lee Ermey.

Remember, just sit back and it will happen on its own. You try to hard and you will get fustrated. It is like playing video games and you get stuck on a level. The harder you try the more you screw up and even cannot go as far as you did previous. Then when you are relaxed and come back at it you some how get it done and feel great. The same thing with finding a girl. IT WILL HAPPEN and usually when you are not looking for it. Good things sometimes take time and are worth waiting for.

Brian,

Totally relate to the working single parent thing - between working and taking care of my gang I am permanently exhausted. My eldest two are 17 and almost 16 but they still need as much attention as they did when they were toddlers (probably because they are guys ). My baby is almost 12 now and needs a full time taxi driver to take her to all her different sports (footbal, rugby, rounder, cricket, netball, basketball and athletice) as well as her blossoming social life.

Luckily I am one of those people that don't need a whole lot of sleep, but it is tough sometimes.

Whew. I was having a rough day then,wow. I'm working through it,but it is hard. Do you have any idea how expensive childcare is??!!! Especially for 2-4yr olds!! Yikes! It's $100 a week each easily at some places. I make too much to get any help,but not enough to be able to afford it. My poor kids think the babysitter is their family!!

Don't even get me started on gas prices!!

I can not stand pompous, racist, hypocritical, self promoting, stalking, trying to cheat on their wife, expelling people for no reason, two-faced, belt factory running, 10th dan liars.

Other than that, I'm cool.

Scottie

I totally agree! One week after I finally stop looking and decide to just get on with my life and I find the girl of my dreams. We're dating now and she's sooooo much more interesting and fun to be around than anyone I've ever met before.

I am not terribly fond of getting a sales call on a Saturday morning at 8:00 AM when it is the only day of the week I can possibly sleep in.
