      Just back from the vet. My big dog has ear infections 😦

    Look on the bright side Ags, least its not a UTI. With those they pee all over the house. Oh and belated thanks for last weeks boobage. It was a rough week, my boy turned 13 and the oddsmakers say his probability of reaching 14 is similar to winning on a slot machine due to his newly adopted “tude.” I’m thinking he’ll continue to believe his shit don’t stink right up to the moment I rub his face in it. Ah kids… can’t kill them and society won’t even let you beat them anymore……

      You can beat them as long as the blinds are down, buddy 😉

    The best part about having an adult child still living at home?

    She picks up lunch for you on the way home from buying groceries to make the evening’s dinner.

      I’m happy if mine clean the kitchen after dinner 😀

    Troy, it’s been a few years, but this is how the conversation usually went at the TiFW household when the girls used to get ‘tudes:

    Me: You’d better stop now, or the beatings will commence.

    Kid: I’ll call CPS on you!

    Me: Oh, please do! Just think, you will get taken away from the home you grew up in and placed in a strange new house which probably won’t be as nice as this one.

    You’ll be forced to eat whatever your new family decides to cook for you, you’ll have to go to a different school – because I’m sure they won’t live in the same neighborhood – and you’ll get to share a room with lots of other kids whose parents REALLY beat them.

    Of course, you may not get to be in the same place as your sisters, so there’s that. And there is no telling where they will place Rebecca – probably some institution somewhere….

    Meanwhile, they’ll arrest me and throw me in jail, where I’ll get three meals a day, a roof over my head, and free healthcare – all at no cost to me. I won’t have to take care of you kids any more, and I’ll get to watch TV all day long

    Hey, this is sounding better and better all the time – let me dial that number for you!

    Surprisingly, the TiFW kiddos never did call CPS on me…… 😛

    If I was feeling particularly peckish, I’d throw in a bit about how Daddy would lose his security clearance if Mommy was in the hoosegow, and then they wouldn’t be able to afford any more nice things.

    The foster family sure as heck wouldn’t be springing for a cell phone plan or car insurance, much less a car, and Daddy would be paying such exorbitant court costs, there wouldn’t be anything left over for those luxuries, even if they were allowed to stay with him.

    And Daddy would probably decide after a while that keeping a wife with a record was limiting his job prospects, so he’d toss me out on my ass and get a nice NEW wife who didn’t have as many miles on her.

    Maybe they’d even be able to share clothes with her – since they’d be close in age, I assured them that their tastes would be similar……

    *takes a bow*

    Thank you, thank you.

    Remind me sometime to tell you what my response was when DD#1 – at the tender age of 15 (aka, “Didn’t have a driver’s license yet”) – uttered these now infamous words when I told her that I couldn’t drop everything right that instant to take her to meet her friends at the mall:

    “If you had a REAL life, you’d understand!”

    Let’s just say that my response to that was SO epic that it lives on in family lore to this day (DD#1 is about to turn 26).

    Not only that, DD#1 made sure to tell DD#2 and #3 to “Never make the mistake that I did”, and then recounted the whole horrifying (to her) conversation in lurid detail.

    I may have been holding in some repressed anger at the “real life” that I was not being allowed to experience, thanks to my children.

    I may have told said daughter that I thought that I might just go out and GET myself a “real life”, but she could be sure that it was going to be at the expense of her ever having any chance at a “real life”, ‘cuz I was gonna be using the car to take myself out on the town.

    I may even have mentioned something about she and her sisters fending for themselves when it came to food, clothing, school supplies, transportation, and doctor’s visits, ‘cuz I wasn’t gonna be around much – due to me having a “real life”.

    I’m not really sure what I said – heat of the moment and all that, you understand – but I was never accused of not having a “real life” after that…… 😛

    The reason old men take Viagra, Cialis, etc. is not because they’re impotent, it’s because old women are ugly.
