Where did THAT come from??

My men, both small and large, have an issue…putting movies back in their boxes.  It has been the source of much aggravation.  Every single time I go to look for movie, it becomes an hour long search because movies are either : a) not in a box, or b) not in the correct box.  Really, it takes the same amount of time to put the movie in the correct box as the wrong one!!  Lol.

  I’m not a yelling parent, I really only scream if I can’t get thru to them, or their life is at risk.  A few months ago, I spent literally 4 hrs putting about 180 movies back into their correct homes…without assistance.  At this point, both spawn swore that it would NEVER happen again, or they would sacrifice valuable things to me.  My spawn are almost 11 and 13… Old enough to handle this and follow thru.

Well, they all fell short. On Xmas eve we wanted to watch a movie, I was asked to find it, and same old sh*t.  Movies were all helter skelter.  To say I was pissed off is the understatment of the Millenium.    I flipped Out!! 

During the flip out, I discovered a ton of missing movies and boxes.  I asked both boys to search their messy rooms.  Spawn #1 found 1.  Spawn #2, who is an incredible slob, insisted he had none. NONE.

Today while I was assisting Spawn 2 clean his pit of a room, I found 23 movies and boxes.  TWENTY THREE that weren’t in there :). Funny that I found movies that didn’t exist :). Amazing what you can find if you just keep things tidy.

    Amy, I’m so sorry! That makes my three surgeries of last year seem like nothing. All I lost was a kneecap, but I learned to walk without that.

    I hope this surgery does it. I will pray for you, to all the gods.

    And how in the world did you get that many movies? I would have flipped out,too. You are human!

    Thinking of you, Lucy
