I love cut & paste

Catherine wrote me an email, and asked me how my foot was doing.

My reply,

"A little better, swollen, but not quite blue and black anymore. We're in the transition to light green and yellow blech...hehehehe

I'm actually feeling pretty sad today. Kaz is still gone to camp and I miss him so much I'm practically hysterical. I'm beginning to really resent seeing these women at my school whooping it up because their kids are gone, and they are "free". I keep wanting to smack them and say, "Hey, 3 of my kids get to visit nature 24/7, they're buried in the ground. How would you like to be THAT free, bitch?"

But I can't say that out loud...hmm, maybe I WILL blog about it."

So I did.


  1. Oh, I'm sorry you are missing Kaz so much. It really is odd when your child is gone. I always feel that emptiness too, even when they are just gone for an overnight.

    But, on the flip side, are you enjoying your solo time with Mac? I know that we always notice how different it is at home with whichever son is still home. It's usually kind of fun to have more one on one time with that child. Maybe you could plan a special outing just the two of you to help pass the time and have some fun (and then Mac can rub it in to Kaz what a great time he had while he was gone- that's what usually happens at our house!)

  2. Owwww - your poor foot and the quieter house. So I understand logically that kids can drive parents crazy, but I'm much more sensitive to your point of view on the question.

  3. Handy feature, that.

    Sorry about the rainbow on your extremities. Sorry about missing Kaz. Monkey is going to be heading to my parents' for a while, and I am not looking forward to that, even as I emphasize with them missing her.

    Good luck making it through.

  4. yaknow...I've alienated enough neighbours to figure out by now that trauma plus dark humor equals uhh alienated neighours...and general aquaintances that don't evolve into anything more than that.

  5. Well, if you did tell the other women that, at least you wouldn't have to worry about them talking about how "free" they are in front of you. In fact, I bet they'd give you a v-e-r--y wide berth.

    I know you wouldn't actually say it. But it would almost be worth it just to see the looks on their faces. bwah hah hah

  6. Ah...and that is reason I have not yet had an overnight without my DS yet. ;) I am not ready to spend a night without him. So, there are two of us in the world!

    I hate it when other women sit there and are grateful their children are off somewhere... A friend of ours talks that way about our Godson, and it makes my stomach turn every time.

  7. Geez, the bottle, the yeast, the ridiculousness?

    I love your sense of humor about things though - we would get along famously.

    Snark on.

  8. He will be home before you know it.

  9. I'm reading your post and I'm obviously in denial, thinking that my boys are so *far* away from going to sleep away camp. I don't even want to think about how much that I will miss them.

  10. Just gulfs apart. I wonder if I'll ever be able to relate to the average parent.


  11. I'm give those women at your school a virtual smack upside the head, too. Why is it those who don't appreciate children have 'em?

  12. People tell me that all the time when my daughter is at her dad's. "Isn't it nice to have the weekend to yourself?"....NO, I hate it! Why don't they understand that it totally sucks to be without your child? I hate it when they don't appreciate parenthood themselves and think everyone else has the same views. It is just sad when so many are too busy to slow down and enjoy being with their children! I am in total agreement with you!
