This time of year can be how shall I say it … frustrating to say the least. Just a little bit. An itsy bitsy small part of being a pain in the lower back side regions. It’s the time of the year. Really. People are shopping for the perfect present either on line or in malls/stores. Days are short in hours but our lists seem to grow further and further and there is *never* enough time in the day. Children are still in school with recitals, homework and projects due at the last minute. At work, end of the year projects and closures for 2013 are in process. And moms – well they deserve a special medal on top of it all. They juggle the schedule, work, shop and still come home to make sure everyone eats right.
So bottom line, it can be a total frustrating time of the year.
So instead of steaming up like a train whistle, here’s your chance to get it out of your system. Let it flow and let it go as mom says. Here’s your moment – do you have something that is bugging you, getting on your last nerve, stressing you out? Let it out. Post away. I’m hear for you and will listen. Get it off your chest. My mommy volunteered to go first. 🙂
“Hi, my name is June. I’m Bacon’s mom and I have stress. Admission is the first step and I’m here with it. You know what perturbs me? Let me tell you.
First off – I’ve been looking at a Mickey Mouse purse on line (go figure, right). I took the chance of waiting to see if the price would go down. It did. And so did all of the stock 😦
Second off – I’m sure others can relate to this one. Drive thrus – is that enough said? LOL I *hate* it when you go through a drive thru, order a drink and they give you two pieces of ice – so frustrating. What’s more frustrating? Getting to work with that nice refreshing cool coke only to realize in your first sip that the CO2 is out or something and it is .A.W.F.U.L.”
So go my friends – let it out. I’m here for you to listen.

We’d have to say bureaucracy! At any time of the year 😉
12/18/2013 at 12:07 pm
That is so true! Let it out my friend. Off the lips and stress free. XOXO – Bacon
12/18/2013 at 1:38 pm
Moan over! Thanks for that release 😉
12/18/2013 at 1:53 pm
Anytime my friend – anytime. XOXO – Bacon
12/18/2013 at 12:15 pm
aaaah I know this price-poker-thingy :o) By now I won not one time. When the price was down ist was always out of stock! I want things what are brand new for the sale price :o)
12/18/2013 at 12:31 pm
Exactly! You can only imagine how mom was very upset. I do believe she said a few choice words under her breath. She didn’t get one of her ‘prized’ Mickey Mouse catches. She is not happy. We are all treading lightly here at the Hotel Thompson today. XOXO – Bacon

It would be great if the holidays were about down time and rest- that is the natural cycle of winter.
12/18/2013 at 12:56 pm
I hear you my friend and I concur. All of this hustle and bustle just wears me out watching it on television. XOXO – Bacon
12/18/2013 at 1:38 pm
Well miss June aka bacon’s mom since I live two hours from Disneyworld, send me a pic of the purse and I can prolly find one like it at downtown Disney when I got next.. :). I have no real complaints at the moment. Sending lots of love and purrs from my family to everyone at the hotel Thompson.
12/18/2013 at 1:55 pm
Snorts – You are so lucky my friend to live so close to mom’s fantasy world. It wasn’t a really expensive purse. She’s been lusting after it on the Disney site for sometime but now it’s gone completely- vanished- never to be seen again. Mom has two flaws I would say. Her compassion for the mouse with four fingers and purses. She has enough of both – well that’s what me and dad keeping telling her – snorts. You are so sweet to offer. I will most definitely keep this in mind for future pursuits though 🙂 You might have created a monster – XOXO – Bacon
12/18/2013 at 2:00 pm
Well I figured it’s the least I could do. I love going to Downtown Disney and looking at the shops and *whispers* I love the free samples at the Ghirardelli Shop..plus there’s a $20 and under gift store that has clearance items and I love getting the $5 mystery bags. Since it’s a hop & a skip for me it would be a great excuse to poke around the stores and look for a purse or if she needs a stuffed animal companion. 🙂
12/18/2013 at 2:32 pm
oh my… mommy definitely needs to come down for a visit so you two can get in trouble together – snorts. Oh the fun ya’ll would have! XOXO – Bacon
12/18/2013 at 3:53 pm
Ooo.. can she bring Albert with her? I think that would be a lot of fun.
12/18/2013 at 3:54 pm
Yes it would and yes she should! I could see you two bopping around in him having fun. I would be so jealous! I’ll have her call/hook up with you the next time she travels south. XOXO – Bacon
12/18/2013 at 2:43 pm
Haha. Totally agree! Had my share of this frustration two weeks ago when school was finishing. Glad it’s all over. Now, I can enjoy the holidays. 🙂
12/18/2013 at 2:45 pm
YAY! Way to go – now sit back and enjoy the season my friend. XOXO – Bacon
12/18/2013 at 3:07 pm
Loved your post.. its actually very true… we need to throw out the frustration… for me its the worst place driving 😦
12/18/2013 at 3:08 pm
Thank you 🙂 Driving – snorts. That’s another one of mom’s pitfalls. She drives a Smart car – snorts. Yeah, she loves the big rigs passing by her like its a race. XOXO – Bacon
12/18/2013 at 3:23 pm
We are not happy we have to work Xmas eve why is this not a bank holiday lol
12/18/2013 at 3:24 pm
That is so totally true. Mommy can relate to that. She used to work in banking. You don’t get many holidays off 😦 But I’ll be here for you my friend. XOXO – Bacon
12/18/2013 at 4:16 pm
Mummy’s stress was her 3 hour journey home. Mine was having to wait for her so I could have my dinner:-(
12/18/2013 at 4:20 pm
oh no. Does she work that far away or is it the holiday traffic? Bless her heart. Yeah, I get in the same boat with my dinner. We’re not good with time change are we? XOXO- Bacon
12/18/2013 at 5:01 pm
Her journey is usually just over an hour, but there were problems on her trainline tonight. And daddy is working late today so was bad timing
12/18/2013 at 5:06 pm
aaww poor Misaki. I do understand how you feel. Meal times are important to me as well. Hopefully this is just a one time thing. I know here the Christmas traffic has been horrendous for my mom. You take care – hopefully she’ll give you extra treats and love 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

Not having any family or friends at this time of year and having to watch endless happy christmas movies all about what I don’t have !
12/18/2013 at 7:27 pm
Oohh no. I’m sorry my friend. We are all family here for you. Always 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
12/18/2013 at 7:24 pm
I am totally grateful I do not have small children at home, just my guineia piggy kids and my sweet Ali girl.
Christmas time is so much less stressful and I am staying away from Walmart til after Christmas.
12/18/2013 at 7:37 pm
Aaww. Mom/dad tried the Wally World side show last weekend. OMP (oh my pig!). It drove mommy bonkers. XOXO – Bacon
12/18/2013 at 10:03 pm
There are snow themes everywhere here and “I am dreaming of a white Christmas” playing everywhere. Not only does it not snow here, it is actually over 100 degrees here! LOL! Merry Christmas from good old aussieland!!! 🙂
12/19/2013 at 7:43 am
Snorts. That is funny. We kind of feel the same about the white Christmas song. We don’t get snow here either. It’s very rare. But never say never. Didn’t Egypt just get snow after 112 years? PLOL. Never lose the faith. XOXO – Bacon
12/19/2013 at 10:10 am
June–what a sunny name you have!!! PS, if you need some ice, we got lots around here these days *sigh*. PPS, I wouldn’t actually eat any, tho. PPPS, maybe it’s better to just tell those drive-thru folks you’d like a cup of ice with a drink on the side! 🙂
12/19/2013 at 11:14 am
Snorts. I tell mommy all of the time not to eat ice that’s yellow – snorts. She is full of sunshine… I can say that even if she is my sweet mom 🙂 Drive thrus are the vain of her existence these days. She better get it out of her system because come Jan 1 the New Year Resolutions kick in. Please pray for me. Double snorts. XOXO – Bacon
12/19/2013 at 11:39 am
Sending prayers toot sweet!!!
12/19/2013 at 3:46 pm
Polar bears and penguins… that gets my nuts in an uproar! They are on opposite ends of the earth, and should not appear together in any Christmas themed stuff!!!!
12/19/2013 at 3:52 pm
O.M.P. (oh my pig!) I can’t breathe. I’m laughing so hard I almost peed on myself. I won’t be able to look at a Christmas card again with those two on them without thinking of your “nuts in an uproar” snorts. XOXO – Bacon

I feel stressed and anxious ALL the time so Christmas is no different! Actually life is rolling along well right now, no complaints. But could I come back here and whine when I do have something to whine about like my comment section on my blog going missing.. 😯
12/19/2013 at 9:11 pm
Yes ma’am. You can come here any time to vent. Remember I got your back 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
12/19/2013 at 7:55 pm
Daughter toke my shopping yesterday and people were nice but; the drivers were terrible. Two different people ran stop signs and one turned right in front of us at green light. Was safer in the store. There I feel better now. LOL.
12/19/2013 at 9:13 pm
I understand completely. There are some days lately that mom just wants to blink her eyes and be home out of traffic. Vent on my friend. I’m always here. XOXO – Bacon

12/22/2013 at 5:12 pm
It was. The holidays can get so hectic. It’s time for mommy to take off work for a while. One more day and she can. XOXO – Bacon
