Will it work???

I read this over at Mid-Century Moms and I think I am going to give it a shot, cause up until now I have been doing everything this says not to and...I am losing my mind one small peice at a time.....

1. Feign deafness.  This bothers your teen when she is trying to ask for something.  And believe me, the only time she'll talk to you is when she is trying to ask for something.
2. Agree with everything she says.  "Yes, dear, I am horrible."  "No, dear, I don't understand."  For the love of God, do not try to reason with said teen.  Therein lies madness.
3. Do not attempt to engage your teen in lighthearted chat.  The withering glare you will receive would make Medusa seem friendly.
4. Try not to hang out with friends whose teens seem to be perfect.  It's too painful.
5. If your teen continues to act particularly unpleasant, leave his/her name and number at the local military recruiter's office.  Remember, absence makes the heart grow fonder. 

Wish me luck, updates soon...

Things that I am Thankful for....

I recently came across a blog of someone I haven't seen in years and she had her Thanksgiving post up already. I have decided since so many wonderful things have happened lately that I would follow suit.
  • Our new house passed the inspection and everything is progressing beautifully.
  • THE PUPPY (self explanatory)
  • My children are healthy and happy and unconditionally wonderful all around.
  • I have a husband that I love and puts up with ALL my nonsense(so he must love me...right?)
  • I have a JOB ( not easy to come by these days if you don't already have one.)
  • I enjoy (mostly) the people I work with, which is good since I have to spend a lot of time with them...)
  • The weather here in Tucson is FANTASTIC right now.
  • Our friends D&A (for now, I will have to come up with nicknames for them soon) had us over for dinner Sat. night and we realized the new house is less than 10 minutes from theirs. we currently live almost 1/2 hour from them and can't wait to see them more often.
  • Wordless Wed...... THE PUPPY

XX.....see you soon!
