Today is Get it Off Your Chest!

Sometimes it feels great to just let it all out! Today, make coupons that are each good for one, 10-minute session of venting and then pass them out to friends or family members in your support system.

The recipient of the coupon need only agree to listen for 10-minutes. They may not complain, roll their eyes, offer advice or share their own vent in return. They simply must listen.

(After you make your coupons, be sure to cash one in and enjoy a good vent!)

Why do I get these phone calls all out of area?   Don't they  understand that if i don't pick up the phone they can always leave a message.  NO?  Then stop calling me, I don't  know you.

Hello fellow single mommies!
I would like to be able to see an actual professional for my ADHD so I can at least talk about my struggles. I have no insurance. I would also like to get badly needed dental work done! I also need to be able to go back to the chiropractor, but again, no insurance!
Oh, and inside my left heel is killing me with pain and burning, which is most likely plantar facitis, but who can afford great shoes or insoles when I'm just trying to figure out a freakin way to buy the $100 calculator my advanced but ADHD daughter needs for her algebra class!

My biggest vent is while I love that both of my kids are busy with after school activities as a single mom of a preteen and a teenager its impossible to be at two places at one time.  And when I am able to time it right and do it all by the end of the day I am so tired of driving my car!  I understand road rage...but I now have a bag of candy corn in my car - seems to be helping :)

The thing thats bothers me is that even though my son's father signed over his rights and I'm a descent enough mom to let him see his son he still stands him up and expects me to forgive him. I receive no support from him and I let him know everything with our child and he still takes advantage of me. It's good to have a sister who will be there for me whenever I need her but def. need to stand my ground!

We've actually had a god day! My only major complaint is that  my son is still SERIOUSLY fighting potty training. I'm starting to worry since he turned 3 in August & we need to accomplish this so he can go to pre-school frown mini

I'm late for my sons speech AGAIN!! My mom just doesn't get how embarrassing it is and 15 mins late of a 45 min appt is a lot of time! It's not like I'm just taking him to do something he wants, it's something he needs! I appreciate her taking us since a cab would be 30 dollars but it's still frustrating grr :'( it's one of those days
