Okay Let’s Take a Minute –

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.

BEWARE

Houston, we may have a problem. Do you remember reading the other day about daddy prepping the turkey for mommy? Well she came home from the worky place and saw it that night. She did laugh at his shall we say creativity. But, she told him that in return he would have to survive Black Friday.

I know Fridays. I live for them every week. Fridays mean that mommy will be home for the next couple of days. Fridays mean I get to stay up late and watch television with mom and dad. Fridays sometimes even mean popcorn while watching b-rated movies on the Sy-Fy channel.

But, I’ve never heard of this Black Friday. It has to be bad. I say this for a couple of reasons. First, when mommy told daddy he would have to “survive” this day, daddy stopped laughing. Heck, for a minute I thought he was going to cry. He kept saying, “But, but, but”. Mommy didn’t listen to him. Second of all, you know something is bad when mommy laughs like the wicked witch from the east. Ooh shivers just hearing that in my head.

So this Black Friday thing, what can it be? Is it dark as black outside all day and it’s a Friday this Black Friday? Is it a plague or disease? Did someone not pay the light bill? Is it the end of days? Should I start stock piling my piggy chow in my bedroom? I’ll admit that this little piggy was scared.

I did what I do best. I squealed, ran to my bedroom and slammed my door. I then immediately started doing some research on my laptop.

ODP (oh dear piggies). It’s worse than what I thought! Did you know that the day after Thanksgiving in the USA, they call it Black Friday? Here’s the scary part. People get up voluntarily at 0400 hours to camp outside of stores to go shopping!. Thud – piggy down! 0400 hours is like way before even Old McDonald gets up at the farm. It’s before the birds start chirping. It’s before they even make the doughnuts at the Krispy Kreme. Heck, it’s before *I* even stir in my toddler bed. That’s early!

Mommy is going to make daddy go shopping with her on Black Friday at 0400 hours. Two words mom. How uncivilized. I can’t believe mom is going to get up before the break of dawn. But friends, don’t feel too sorry for daddy. I saw him the garage laughing and getting “ready” for Black Friday. He was pulling out his old pads from his football days. I think I even saw him with a hockey stick and a helmet. Oohh mommy – who is punishing who now? Snorts.
