    Thanks For Nothing Orkin!

    The Orkin man came today, says I've got Teenagers, but he couldn't do anything about them.  So much for that pest control.  Lol! I don't actually have the children, they are my mother's, but they live with me and I suffer too damnit!

    I Am Annoyed With My Teenager

    I am so frustrated. He left for Study Abroad in Mexico about three weeks and will return in three more weeks. Just before he left, without telling me, he bought travelers checks. And immediately did not know where they are. I learned this on the morning he left. So ... being the...

    I Love My Teens Even Though They Drive Me Crazy!

    Why are teenagers so full of drama. I am not just talking about girls either. I have teen boys and I think they have some kind of pact that says that if one of them is in a good mood, the other has to be cranky and complaining about EVERYTHING. Ugh...I love them to pieces but...

    Two Great Girls

    My eldest will be off to college in September, and I'm going to miss her so much. At least I have another one (age 15) to focus on. Then what? More cats, I guess!

    Almost A Grandpa...

    I have 8 kids, with twins on the way. 3 of them are teenagers. My son Bentley is 15 and has always been the "good one." He rarely ever got into trouble and he is usually just a happy, goofy kid. The last few months he'd been acting a little weird. He seemed quieter and moodier...
