VGNO.....Happy Mothers Day?!?!

OK, so, you girls ( and guys) who have teenageers can appreciate this week of mine- and for the record- Im not getting mom of the year either!! I have a 16 year old son, a 14 year old daughter , an 11 year old son and a 10 year old son.

I need a vacation.

Have you ever felt like your kids are pecking you to death like a herd of chickens? I think Mothers Day is going to be rough around here. We have so much to do, and not enough hands- ( if you can even imagine that ) to do it all!! I really would like a few things to change for mothers day- like I want the dirty clothes fairy to pick up the clothes on the floor- next to the hamper! And I want a dishwasher- oh wait- I have one! ME!!!! lol Id also like for my flowerbed to be weed free, and my carpet to be stain free and my bedroom to be laundy basket free.......Im not asking for much, but when your day is sooo long you want to strangle your oldest child with the hair of your need a VGNO!! ALthough I think a real girls night out would be better in this case!

My friend called me today and offered to go in halves for a spa weekend- we'd have to pay with credit and we wouldnt have enough $$ to eat, but we could go...I told her we could do that at home, so whats the difference? she said the "pecking" She shares in my theory about being pecked to death.

This has been such an adventure, being a mom. I never know what to expect. Like today, interim report day....I was given Mothers Day Cards first- Im thinking to soften the blow of some not-so-impressive grades?!?! So, I recieved them graciously, then asked for the reports- I was right! Although there are improvements to be made, they wern't too bad. And credit to the two who gave me the gifts first....:)

I do have a scrumptious crock pot chocolate cake to share! Instead of re posting it, I will provide a link to it....

It is the PERFECT way to WIND DOWN after a LONG week....and only takes a few minutes to prep......and goes great with Icecream or just plain.

And after I get my CHOCOLATE PERFECTION started- Im going to be a REBEL MOM and color my hair and paint my nails purple..........

And maybe I will put chocolate syrup in my cereal this weekend too.


  1. You should go back and post to just your blog, too. You are fun and entertaining!

    Happy VGNO!

    Happy Mother's Day!

    Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Happy Mother's Day! I TOTALLY get the pecking, and I have ONLY one, but she can peck with the best of them all on her own! I guess whether one or ten, us Mom's all struggle with the same stuff! In a way it makes me feel better to know I'm not alone!

    Happy VGNO!

  3. Mmm, chocolate syrup in cereal? That sounds pretty darn delicious!!! Happy VGNO and happy Mother's Day!
