Joining the World of Missing Persons

Okay, I call Uncle! Uncle! Uncle! UNCLE!

Four and a half days down, fourteen and a half to go.

I think the children are taking over and are trying to kill me.

have you seen that malcom in the middle where... that fad dude thinks his helper monkey is actually trying to kill him? and he's right?

oh, um... totally not the same situation, i'm sure.

Mary said...

You can't let them win! If you do, word will spread and we'll all be going down.

kristi said...

Of course they're trying to take over. But you will prevail, because you are older and wiser (and bigger)! Just make sure the swords stay in jail.

Hang in there, honey!

Chickenbells said...

It's time to get some chocolate and lock yourself somewhere safe...after they're asleep...sleep...sleep...

Angelina said...

You must prevail. It's on your shoulders now, to give us all hope, to help us believe that they aren't planning to put us all on giant spits to roast us in a Lord Of The Flies type of frenzy.

If I had any valium I would send it your way via airmail.

It's why I won't have 3 children. Because when the ankle biters outnumber the adults, there's always trouble. I mean, just look at piranha...

Road trip. You should drive down to Mississippi and I'll take the boys to the beach with us while you take a nap. The beach always wears my little Lily out like nothing else. I hose her off and she sleeps for days. Meanwhile, I have been watching Nip Tuck on Netflix, you have to see it.

Do you have someone who can come and babysit? Maybe a lunch with a friend or something, that always helps me when the hubby is away.

Angela said...

Ya poor woman! I feel for you.

nuttnbunny said...

Maybe you could just leave them at the thrift store for a couple hours :-)

(I'm trying to make your comment moderation worth the while) ;-)

Kristy said...

Just give in you know it's easier and more fun!

Rachel said...

I know exactly how you feel! For some reason when my husband is gone my children become possessed! This makes no sense considering I am the disciplinarian.

Heidijayhawk said...

stay strong sister! do i need to come over there and rescue you?! with margaritas?

lera said...

Hang in there!

(Hey, Joe's home!)

LLA said...

Just keep swimming!

(you're on the home stretch now!)

amy h said...

Aw -- well, just a few more days to halfway, right? :) Hang in there.

vintagechica said...

He, he...Lord have I been there before. Be strong sister, be strong. But I know what you mean...sometimes I think my boys are conspiring against me. Can 5 year olds do that?

cheryl said...

Ahhh, let them take over! What's the worst that could happen?

uh, ya. Never mind.

Too bad we don't live closer - my DH travels a lot too, but not for the marathon trips yor hubby does.

Now that would suck ass.

Repeat after me:

I AM BIGGER THAN THEM. I AM STRONGER THAN THEM. I AM MEANER THAN THEM.

And then lock them in the basement, with a bowl of water and and throw down a few slices of gluten free bread a couple of times a day.

Have you finished the ouzo already?

paper. string. cloth said...

Ha Ha HA! Paris Hilton! Chocolate! Lord of The Flies! Lock them in the Basement! Margaritas! I love the solutions we all give you for a fortnight home with the kids......!
Jeepers love, you're outnumbered...... Better hope youre trolly nightmare doesn't read your comments or we'll all be fucked, especially if the way we fix our problems is to get drunk on something and leave our kids at the thrift store......
Oh Lord, I'm weeping I'm laughing so hard....
hang in there.......

gwendomama said...

the temptation to leave an anon comment is really killing me. because i am awesome like that.
than you for continuing to say fuck. so my kids won't be the only screwed by my nasty potty mouth parenting.

Keri said...

Hope you're hanging in there!!!! Have a warm bath - or a cocktail! lol

Strikkelise said...

Bribe them, I say.

Love your thrift finds, esp. the dish!
