In light of all your recent lists of things you're thankful for I have come up with a list of my own. Now don't get me wrong, I am thankful for a lot of things, just right now I feel this list is needed to help balance the universe ;)
Since Canadian Thanksgiving is over I am free to write this list of things I am certainly NOT thankful for.... all forms. Least favorite is the kind that needs some kind of wiping up from yours truly.

Hungry kids...why can't they live off one meal a day like me??

Arts and crafts. They're messy and time consuming. The thought of them brings on such intense guilt because I should encourage them more in my house.

People who love doing crafts with their kids.

Dogs who shed.

Vacuum sales men on thanksgiving day just hours before guest arrive. At least he left crying....

Laundry...I wish it would DIE!!!

Empty water cooler so so thirsty....send help....

My sister hoarding my only niece in Montreal...even on her 1st birthday!

People who don't realize I own the road. MOVE!!!!!!!!!!!

Clean laundry that needs to be hung can die too....


My stupid forgetful stupid memory! I literally forget every other thing I need to do. can die along with laundry.

The child who draws on the cupboard beside the toilet paper roll in poo.

The child who uses a toothbrush covered in toothpaste to clean the mirror.

Lego and all it's painful corners

Socks with out matches. From now on you will be burned immediately.

Vasectomies and their power to dash a person's hopes and dreams.



Glitter glue.



scissors and their ability to cut baby hair :(

Unidentified puddles in the house.

Feeling sorry for myself.

Hope you're all having a great evening in thankful land riding unicorns and eating chocolate covered rainbows!!!

PS. Don't send in the clowns, I'll be fine ;)
This too shall pass......

((((Jennifer)))) I am really worried about you girl. I k now this too shall pass, it always does, but sommetimes we just need to get it all out. I had to make a decision a few weeks ago that I had to change things, or I was not going to be able to function, so I made a list of things that I enjoy, and I am doing them. Woho wares if the kids have clean laundry LOL. Do something for you.

(((Hugs))) but I have to say that I loved your list and can relate to a lot of it...especially the poo one but in my case it was for the baby who decide to fill his diaper and then some and it proceeded to collect in the leg of his outfit and run down to his toes. Eww! And I don't even want to talk about laundry...which reminds me that I have a bunch hanging on the line right now that I need to get in. Grr.
