I hate Wisconsin

Just to let you know, I hate Wisconsin. I hate snow, I hate cold, I hate winter, I hate tornadoes. And I'm crabby today, in case there was any question.

I NEED to bake today. And wouldn't you know it my windshield wipers are frozen to the windshield. Like, let the defrost run for 30 minutes and still can't pull them off frozen. So I can't go to the grocery store to get the things needed which means I'll have to wait until Craig gets home which means I'll be up til 2 am wrapping caramels.

Hailey is at community service today. Teen court threw the damn book at her. Literally what it boiled down to is she was charged with harassment for calling S a whore. They asked completely ludicrous questions that didn't have any relevence to anything. They were scripted questions I'm told. Nice. I certainly hope S's punishment fit her crime. We were suppose to have a meeting with them on Friday which got rescheduled to Monday. As if I have nothing better to do than rearrange my schedule for all this stupid crap.

But Hailey, being the mature, responsible child I love has agreed to follow the sanctions she received and is serving part of her 20 hours of community service today. God love her.

My migraines continue although they seem to be back to "normal" in that I'm just getting the aura and not the headache. It's happening really frequently though which is concerning. I see the doctor the first week in January to figure out what the heck is going on with me.

Almost done with Christmas shopping. Almost.

Did you hear Michelle Duggar gave birth to her 18th child via only her THIRD c-section? Good lord that woman has a uterus of steel.

Nate's really learning to talk now and is showing big intrest in potty training! What? NONE of my kids show interest in potty training before at 3. No complaints from the mommy dept that's for sure. He sure is growing up.

I HATE the cold, too. It is nothing like Wisconsin, though; I am pretty sure I would die if I had to spend a winter in any of the colder states. That is lame about the community service, but I guess it always does good and builds character (if you are looking on the bright side). I really wish Peanut would take more interest in potty training. He is only almost two, but it would be nice to get away from diapers for a while.
Merry Christmas!

Wow I just found this post and I hate Wisconsin too. As a native Californian I don't belong here. It's too cold, too backwards, too boring. Did you know that it is ILLEGAL TO SWEAR HERE? ADULTERY IS A FELONY? I'm not saying I like to swear or that I would commit adultery (yuck) but a felony? And drunk drivers are given the right to drive around and get arrested 1,000 times before they're thrown in jail for a long time? Backward hick state.

Everything that sucks about the state of WI is intensified by living in Milwaukee. I hate it. The taxes, the crime, the weather. It's May 25th and too cold to plant flowers because of the wind coming off the dirty, smelly, bacteria ridden lake. I'm stuck here for another few years. And as for the state - STOP teaching people how to suck off the system for a living!!!!! I'm sick of paying for people to watch there own damn kids! I'm sick of drug dealers using WI loopholes to scam the system for even more money! 5th, 6th, 7th DUI's ?!?!?!? Off with their heads!
