 Isn't that frustrating? 

But, at least they are staying on top of it! 

Quoting Amy127:

Not too much to complain about. Just a little annoyed with my sons school and having to re evaluate his IEP AGAIN.

Right now, not much to vent about.

I have a 12 year old daughter who continues to roll her eyes or look straight through me with the daggers or when you tell her to do something she thinks it is supposed to be done on her time.  Then she thinks she is so slick when she lies about the most stupid stuff.  Its like she has forgot the meaning of telling the truth and telling a lie.  And when she wants something she expects you to jump right then and do it but when you ask her to do something it is like the world has came to an end.  Then when you remind her of what you asked her to do she looks at you like you are crazy.  Then when I say the word "NO" oh how the world will end then. 


OK Done with my vent.  Dang that felt good.  banging head into wall

Ok, I'm gonna do this and here's my vent:

I had to apply for food stamps and it's been a month and I still haven't gotten my card OR approval letter. I call once a week to find out the status, and after waiting on hold for 30-45 minutes!!!! they finally come on and say they have no idea what's taking so long, just wait a few more days. Sorry, but my family is hungry and I cannot afford to buy all this food! Along with that is the medicaid. We all need medical attention and I particularly need mental health before I lose my mind. I need to get a diagnosis and some meds so I can get stabilized and deal with my life right now!

Ugh...........I feel better though, thanks. :)

Not much to vent about right now.  I had an awesome weekend and a pretty good Monday.  I'm broke but at least I'm happy and DS and I have everything we need for the week.  Things could be much worse.
