    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Just what I need~ a little quiet! Our boy who has mandatory biweekly visits, has one coming up tomorrow, and he has been a terror to be around! (sorry to Complain) He was yelling all night, tried to hit Zak (not so bright going after a black belt) and just being an overall pain inthe tush!

    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Jeanne, Speaking of Pain inthe Tush, how is it going w/ Emerald Lady? ;)

    Poor thing – those visits really do throw him. Too bad the social worker can’t see that. (or is this the sw who doesn’t know aything about autism?)

    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    No, but this is the agency that is still trying to reunite him….even though clearly not what the family wants.

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    In reference to Emerald Lady – I’ve completed about about 20 inches – sent it along with Larry today and……
    drum roll, please….
    She absolutely loves it!!!
    Her phone call made my day – I jumped up and down in my classroom. Luckily I was alone.
    I’ll post photos over the weekend. “Just” the MOP with wrapped loops on either end, connected with hand made chain. (3 sets of double jump rings)

    Hasn’t the family canceled meetings at the last minute. What a shame.

    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Yay!!!!!!!! So glad she finally came to her senses & recognized the Genius of your design! :D Can’t wait to see it!

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    I was nervous because my final design was slightly different from the sample she originally ok’d. I didn’t want to put any more effort in till she saw it.

    Faithful Chick aka Faith says:

    Gorgeous pick Lorrie, I need a holiday too but fortunately, I can count down because I’ll leave on April 4 to Vietnam :-D

  15. Frida
    Frida says:

    HOhh Holiday!
    Great Pick and I hope it has calmed down at home Lorrie!

  16. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Thank You Chickies~! Sometimes, I just get so frustrated! Last night, I even found myself feeling sorry for me. I thought, Geeze; these kids don’t appreciate all I do for them. They are so lucky to have me…. (course they don’t- they are still kids) Still feeling bad this morning! Dan was so naughty last night, it started the other kids going badly.
    Then I jump on here, and everyone is ready to Vacation with me. Just what I need!!!!

  17. Frida
    Frida says:

    Lorrie! Your feelings are totally ok to have! We can’t just sit and be happy al the time with a smile on our faces… Bout feeling sorry for yourself, I don’t I have got a real grip on what “feeling sorry for one self is” i have a clue and what I read you are not in my cathegory of “feeling sorry for yourself” Would be glad if someone clarify what they think feeling sorry for themself is? ! Hugs

    Frida says:

    One thing is if one blame everything on others…

  19. KittyMom Linda
    KittyMom Linda says:

    Lorrie, it’s ok to take a vacation from life – even if it’s only in our minds. You do such a wonderful job with your family – I think you are entitled to chill once in a while. Have lunch outside again today, it’s supposed to be another winner.

  20. KittyMom Linda
    KittyMom Linda says:

    Oh, by the way, the pick is softly delicious.

  21. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Frida, I was feeling like it was what was being done to me, and kind of lost track that dan was acting out because of his own frustration! I was tired, and cranky, and forgot to account for his feelings. That is why I think I was feeling sorry for myself. It wasn’t really about me at all!

    See, this is why I am so Lucky! What would I ever do without my Chickies!

  22. CAS
    CAS says:

    Lorrie … you need a “calgon, take me away” moment at the very least, or there’s a car commerical on now where the mom, in a spa robe, is out sitting in the family van having “me” time, and the husband is keeping the kids away. :D Take a moment, take a deep breath, visualize a calm place, and know that you are deeply, deeply loved. Hugs!

    Frida, “feeling sorry for oneself” is when a person feels sad/unhappy/bad about their own life or an event in their life, but realizes at the same time that there are others who are in worse situations. It’s a feeling of pity for oneself out of proportion with the event/situation. I hope this helps.

  23. KittyMom Linda
    KittyMom Linda says:

    Yeah, about the Emerald Lady, I thought maybe we were into summer hiatus from new episodes. Haven’t heard much. Hate to go into reruns but I just reread all the old comments – I needed a chuckle. Not that I enjoyed your pain, just loved all the comments. Anyway, yippee, she liked it – today anyway. Hurry and give it to her when done and then tell her you are on a break from custom designs for a few days.

  24. KittyMom Linda
    KittyMom Linda says:

    I LOVE that car commercial – some van but I don’t remember the make. Soo cool.

  25. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Thanks, Christine! :D

    Linda, Lunch outside sounds like an Awesome idea…. think I will do that!

    KPJEWELS says:

    Lovely pick, Lorrie. What you need is at least a half hour of “ME” time. Best to try and get it in before the kids get home from school. Maybe you’ll be refreshed enough to deal with today. Sorry about all your frustrations. Many, many HUGS. I will keep you in my prayers.

    Mary - Sweet Chick says:

    Ditto all the fantastic encouragement and advice from all the chicks! I hope you take a little time for yourself very soon Lorrie! ;-)

    And this pick! Looks like a vacation to me! It’s gorgeous and I love it!! :-D

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Lorrie, I’m sorry you were so stressed, but glad it helped you create this fab pick! Hope today is going better for you and your family, especially sweet Dan! :D
    Chicky hugs to you, dear friend!!!

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Lorrie, I hope today was better than yesterday. Bless your heart, don’t feel guilty for being human! You take on so much, and with a smile on your face, that you are an inspiration to me and many others. I also hope that the visit was as uneventful as possible. Give yourself and the kids a hug from me!

  30. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Oh, Lorrie, I SO sympathize with you!! I find myself getting very frustrated with my kids, too, and also sometimes think they are out to get me. LOL Alicia is the 8-year-old-I know it all and I’ll do it my way-diva, Adrian is a crazy-hyper rambunctiously-defiant 5-year-old boy, and Antonio is just starting his (very loud) terrible two’s. What fun. LOL I give you so much credit for being able to take care of all the kids that you do. Don’t be hard on yourself, all moms deserve a little room to b*tch. We’re only human. :P
