In The Depths of Mindless Drivel

You know how sometimes everyone gets on your nerves and you don't want to hear even the sweetest voices of your own offspring? And then the neighborhood produces the most annoying of all annoying children, possibly in the whole world? And that child decides that you are his favorite new person, attaches himself to you, and talks your friggin' ear off?

That is where I am right now.

Ugh!

The school year can not start soon enough (although I doubt that will make this stray child go away!)!!!!!

I feel for you. I've been there, done that, and bought the tee shirt! Hang in there, summer doesn't last forever!

Rachel said...

I hear you. I was there last week. I would whisper under my breath because I just wanted everyone off my back. HUGS!!

Rebecca said...

I've had kids like that in my life before. And I've BEEN a kid like that, too, I'm sure. Sigh...

I almost said "Better you than me!" but that would have been incredibly, INCREDIBLY rude.

I'm bummed that I didn't get a chance to get in touch with you while we were in Cali. Have you stepped outside in the last week? Holy crap!

That's too bad. That's always the way it is, though.

You need to find something really sticky and hard to chew to give him... keep his mouth busy. LOL!

I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes you just get to that point in life, not to sound to blah blah blahy, or whatever. But, how did you get that signature at the end of your posts?

Ellie said...

Ellie said...

Ellie said...

Thanks soo much! It totally helped. But just to get this straight.. I have to insert the signature EVERY SINGLE TIME I do another post?

Perhaps if you sat down with the child and really listened to him a moment he would be satisfied.
Generally when people want to talk your ears off they don't really feel listened to.

Love yourself well,

Tell me about it! I send her outside and that buys me a few minutes peace.

Is it sad that I don't even have kids but feel the same way about my husband when he talks today?

Ahem...
