Kids, Dads, Revisions, and A to Z

This week's Saturday wrap up is late because I didn't want to post my original. It was LONG and ventful (yes, ventful :p). So, I decided I wasn't posting a post like that. I cut it back, got rid of a some of the venting and here ya go...

REVISIONS! I think that word should be classified as a swear word. I will just leave it at that because if I don't the post will be way too long.

KIDS! My three and five year old were packed full of back talk, attitude, and overall "I will do what I want and there's nothing you say or do that will stop me." It was a stressful week as I tried to get them to check their attitudes and clean up after themselves. It didn't get all the way better, but they're not being as rotten.

DADS! I say "Dads" but really only one dad pissed me off this week, my kids'. He called Monday and cut them off. Said he's done with all of us. Yep-isn't he father of the year? Oh yeah. That's okay though, I hate it for my kids, but we will get through it together. It's going to hurt my oldest more, she is an EXTREME daddy's girl. Oh well, people do stupid things, and that's stupid on his part, but I learned long ago that I cannot change him.

A TO Z! Yes, to wrap up this Saturday, like I did last Saturday, I want to talk about the A to Z Challenge. It's such a positive way to conclude my grumpy post. The challenge is creeping up slowly, but it's coming. I have my poems lined up for every Tuesday and Friday(though they will be poems I wrote a while back, it's just easier that way.) I have my April 1st post written and scheduled. I have my Monday and Wednesday To Do posts planned out for each letter of those days (Yes, we will still be working on the To Dos' it's just the non writer to do) I have some prospects for my Thursday TAG! (Those letters are not so easy) I got my line up almost completely ready to go. Next week I'm going to work on getting posts written and scheduled. NOW-don't you think it's time for you to go sign up? I know some of my readers are already signed up-YAY-but if you haven't you should. It's going to be so fun! Go to the A to Z Challenge site to sign up.

I will tell you, I'm going to mention the challenge for the remaining Saturdays in March. Sorry for anyone who already signed up, I know you don't need to hear about it every week. I just want to make sure anyone who doesn't know about it-or knows but hasn't signed up-goes to sign up. I will try to add a link to something fun about the challenge, like this one: Jeremy over at his blog Geeky Tendencies has a fun list-HERE.

So that's this week all wrapped up, Happy Saturday! :)

I feel bad for your kids as well. Sorry you have to deal with that.
Glad you're so excited about the Challenge though!

Alex-Thanks. I am excited and I figure I don't mean to whine in my week wrap ups so I like to make sure I add something positive.

Jeremy-No problem, it was a fun list :)

Lee-Lol, my 3 year old's middle name is Lee :) And yes kids are definitely both.
Thanks for linking!
