"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Today has sucked...

Marty woke up early (like oh dark thirty early) and, instead of staying in bed, he got up. Then, once the rest of us got up, he fell back asleep. We got absolutely NOTHING productive done school wise. Guess that means extra school tomorrow and some Saturday morning. And, since he was to tired to get his ass back out of bed when I tried to get him up, he will be going to bed early tonight and for the next couple of nights. I warned him about that when he wasn't getting up but I bet he thinks I'll give in on that.

Gabe is mostly better but is cranky as hell.

Because Marty was half asleep or cranky, he thought he needed to tell Gabe what he could or couldn't do which, of course, pissed Gabe off.

I had to clean the nasty assed fish bowls today because NO ONE except me evidently has the ability to clean or change their water despite it visibly needing to be done...and, in addition to cleaning the disgusting fishy smelling water, I had to dispose of two dead fish because they kicked the bucket from old age.

Joey is cranky and pissed that he has to go to the 6 o'clock Tae Kwon Do class because (cue the whiniest voice you can imagine) "I won't have any time to play after I do my homework and can't I go to the 8 o'clock class since tomorrow is an early release day." He was not at all happy when I reminded him that it was his choice to not go earlier in the week in favor of today's class and he had to go. He's whined, complained, copped an attitude, and then totally denied doing so. He's been near tears three times in the past half an hour. Can we say early bed time?

Marty had to be called home right after he went to his friend's house because he walked out without giving the dogs water (his weekly chore). I asked him what he thought the dogs were suppose to do and he replied "I don't know." I told him either he could come home and do it or, if I did it, there would be other consequences.

According to Joey and Marty, they never roll their eyes or raise their voices or do anything else wrong when they talk to me. I guess I may have to start recording our conversations.

Gabe also decided to be pissed off at me because I can't miraculously divine the last name and phone number of his friend from school that he wants to invite over. Somehow, promising him I will get a note to his friend's mom tomorrow isn't sufficient.

When we got home from picking up Joey from school, I was waiting to pull into our driveway as Gabe and Joey wheeled garbage and recycling cans up the driveway. An asshat who couldn't see or didn't care that I was waiting for the kids pulled up behind me and yelled rude shit out his window. ARRRRGH

And, to add to the annoyance factor, the stupid credit union's computer system is down and I can't access our account to see if the insurance money is in there yet.

Today has been a royal pain in my ass.

Sorry you had a sucky day. Hope today's better.

I think I might have to give up the twitter. I can't keep up with the tweets and the blogs. :-(
