Frustration abounds when......

~One is expecting something and it doesn't happen.

~One is trying to build a train track with one's three year old and one simply cannot find the pieces one needs to do as one wants.

~One has a hankering for something and the cupboards are empty, yielding anything other than what one is looking for.

~One's son packs himself to go away to a friends, packing extra in case of wretched weather that would keep him from getting home, and then neglects to bring said extras home thereby leaving a large gap in his wardrobe causing his mother to double time on the laundry so that although he is wearing the same clothes over again at least they are clean.

~One gets the house all back in order again after the festivities of the season and no-one pays any heed and simply dumps their things willy nilly here and there.

I guess that's enough rant for today, and now I feel better and will head back to train tracking with Sam who couldn't care less whether or not the track is set up as mommy wants it. He's just glad to be having fun!!!

Poor Sam couldn't handle anymore fun, flopped upside down on the sofa and went to sleep.......

Venting does help, doesn't it?!?! Hope you have a great day!

Oh... I can relate to ALL of those!! My son got a train track set for Christmas..... I however, still haven't put away all our Christmas stuff... so Kudos to you for at least being on the ball!

Venting certainly helps. Blogging is so theraputic.
I think it is safe to say that in most homes it goes un-noticed at Christmastime or not.
You are doing a good job keeping it all together. It's good to vent every once in a while otherwise you explode and make a mess or keep it in and slowly die.
Love ya!

Why cant we do that? Get tired of playing train and flop down to take a nap! Hope you feel better now.

My house looks like it has gone to the animals! Unless Mr BAV is willing to roll up his sleaves and help, this house is gonna stay this way till I move out due to lack of room to breath!

YOu my friend are better then I!

Mr Man looks so cute sleeping.

Ahhh, cute little Sam.

I know what throwing junk around all willy nilly is like. I live with three junk throwers.

Hey Bav.... we can have cleaning parties... I'll help clean your house if you help clean mine!! Move here to the westcoast Alison and the offer is open to you too!!

Connie and Rob said...

Oh he is just the cutest. I will come over and play and billed the train track and then you can do your work.

I guess you probably would like it the other way around...
