I have decided to run away

After much thought, I have decided I am going to run away.

I have not yet decided on a destination, or have I decided how I am going to live once I get there...I am only packing a fresh pair of underwear, chapstick, and a bottle of vodka..(and I don't even drink)

My kids have drove me crazy, the house, the job,the kids, the dog, the kids,and everything else you can think of..Oh yes and the kids..

My son has told me he is tired of doing all the work around here.(he stated this after he got mad and threw one of his toys on the ground and I told him to pick it up)..The 2 older ones are always fighting, or just itentionally getting on eachothers nerves...

Some days I feel I have had it...Some days I think I really need to get a full time job and let someone else deal with it all day....

At least it is cooler today. It is about 75 now compare to 100 yesterday..

I will let you no where I end up once I decide where I am going...I am thinking Bangkok or Katmandu...Haven't made up my mind yet..Depends on which one os farther away and closest to the sun...

I wonder if I am the only mother who wants to run away...Maybe I need to start a support group for myself..And call it.."You cant run away your my mother"............Any takers????

I better go..My son apparently has not ate all day and is on his way to deaths door...The dramatics on this kid are very amazing..He would give any leading man a run for his money....He can cry in cue, have a fit at the littlest thing, run and hide when asked to do any work, throw himself to the ground in a huddle like you were running in a bomb shelter when you scold him....Very imperssive..I need to get the kid some head shots..And a good agent:)

Hope all you moms out there are fairing better...
(I think my son must be getting ready to go thru puberty..He is 8 and half..Very emotional, cranky, moody, and annoying)....Any moms with young boys..Please let me know what you think?..He seems a little young to me...But I don't know for sure...I may need to commit myself if it gets much worse.

My Mom and I always always joke that we aren't the suicidal type - we're the running away type. I think EVERY mother feels this way sometime and it was really fun reading your post today. (I know - not fun for you. LOL.)

I have a son who is going to be 7 yo next month and he hasn't gotten more and more into talking back to me. He is also always instigating fights with his little 3 1/2 yr old brother.

Probably won't help your sanity, but I do understand!

I don't have boys, nor do I have any children over the age of 5 months, but I'm sure I'll be right there with you in a few years!!

Oh....I'm assuming you've been watching our soap...would they just get the whole Marlena/Roman thing over with for crying out loud!! Oh, and whatever with the whole Belle/Phillip/Shawn thing. Ugh...LOL.

i wanted to run away many a times with my 2 kids.....they fought a lot.....house work was a sin.....one even told me she wasn't doing a lick of work until she hit 18..because after that she'd have to do it all on her own.......thaat went for working too...but she would babysit durring the summer..i can laugh at it all now....mother's revenge is so sweet

I had abit of a break down this weekend too.. its the fact that everyone is here all the time and gah.. the mess never stops.. never ending some thing to pick up or wash or put away or scrub of cook or pick up or fold or bath or pack or etc... Now ya see our old men go to work and get time off. Days to sit around. Come hom and put their feet up. What do we get? To pray the kids go to bed on time so we can take a bath!

We love them and wouldn't trade it but the never ending maid/mom machines needs breaks too. We need a union!

Hang in there! Your boy may be an academy award winner someday and say, "I owe it all to my mom!"

you have to be kidding me????? You think you are the only mother who wants to run away???? I went to my sister's house last night because my cousins were there and I refused to hold the baby the whole night. I have had him for a total of 5 months, he's a saint and I STILL have visions of moving by myself to the caribbean. And you don't drink?? How the hell do you make it through the day?
