<p>This is a whine/vent.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Last year my son went to school.  He wanted to do an engineering program that is offered at a local high school.  Plus there is a scholorship opportunity for him.  So we let him go.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My oldest daughter decided she want to go to school. So we let her.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today is the first day of Thanksgiving break.  My dh is off also.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So know I have 3 people to mess up my and my youngest routine.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My dh and I ;) slept in....that was fun.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But the two oldest kid cannot be quite and not disturb the youngest.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My youngest dd is tired and cranky. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My oldest dd is horrid.  She told me to shut up, while I try to fix the computer that had disconnected the internet. I had asked her questions trying to figure out what was going on.  My dh told her to get her food and take it into her room to eat.  She came out.  I reminded her to take her bowl in the kitchen.  She screamed at me not to yell at her (I wasn't).  My dh told her I wasn't yelling, get the bowl and glass into the kitchen sink, give him her mp3 player, and go lay down until she lost her attitude.  Once she finds the respectful attitude, she will find her mp3 player and when she gets the computer back.  All in less than two hours.   </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My dh is now sitting in his chair pouting and cranky because the kids are just rotten today.  All he want was a nice family weekend.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm tired.  Even though I slept in ;) My daily routine is off.  I had to wait to make coffee because someone else was blocking the coffee maker cooking.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh, I forgot to mention, my ds thought it would be funny to toss mini-boxes of cereal at his sisters "to catch" what he thought they should eat for breakfast.  It was received with screams and whines. </p>

<p>Wow, maybe everybody needs to get out of the house! I'd be tempted to give the older two money for a movie and the car keys and boot them out the door. The youngest child, DH and I would then spend the afternoon cleaning and baking.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hope things get better!</p>

<p>It is raining so bad.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My dh bought my son an online computer game.  DS is lost in that game.  His behavior did improve and he did laundry.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We had the girls lay down.  My youngest took a nap.  She is nice now. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My oldest daughter is taking a drive with her dad .....this isn't a good thing.  She won't knock her crap off and being mean to everyone.  <img alt="crap.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/crap.gif"></p>

<p>I send my ds to his room when he gets an attitude.He is just 8,but his mood can affect others.Shoot,anyone crabby can spread it to others like a virus.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have told everyone that the home is a haven from the outside stress. If you come into the home with an attitude take it into your room until you can be nice. I simply will not tolerate it.Stress hurts the body. When I get crabby I even go to my bedroom. Just not fair to make others unhappy.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I would talk to everyone and ask  them to go to their rooms when they can not be nice.</p>
