I dont want to sound horrible BUT .....

This is a reoccurring problem at the nunde household and I don't know if I am awful for saying out loud or am I saying what other people want to say but cant? My kids really give me the I$#@ when they have too much spare time and hang around home all day where I work...

I have been trying to make bags all week. I brought in my machine because of the heat so I am set up in the lounge and although the weather cooled down I just don't feel like returning to the shed. 2 days my daughter gets home from school at 12pm and one day she has off...... I love her more than sausages but I will go mental if I have to endure another day of her lounging around in my workspace watching the massive TV that costs more than my wages to run. I hate TV when I am working. I get too distracted. And of course with a teenager sitting in the same room I get distracted with the overwhelming urge to catch up on nagging, lecturing and general mothering that I feel she is missing out on because at night when I have finished work, she is at her boyfriends....... You with me so far. I am truly at "that age" arn't I? Intolerant, grouchy and possibly senile.

Anyhow. I have been desperately trying to sew bags for this Saturday. Grocery totes that I have called Slim nundes because they re thinner versions of my Fat nundes. Plus my number 1 son is returning home next week to do some serious lounging no doubt.......
I adore my kids and this is one of the downsides to working from home. I found them all far less distracting as toddlers and accomplished far more. I am now also in the process of moving my fabric out of my sons room...... a wise person (Elsie) did tell me that I might want to hold off on filling his room up because they do come back....
Just in case my awesome most brilliant kids do ever see this, I love you all more than a truck load of Tim Tams. Mummy is just blogging about you...oops sorry <3

And so that is yet another look into the world of working from home.

Buggar... sounds like you need a hug and a cup of tea!
Yes we all have those times when things don't go according to our plans and it's very frustrating.
I have my little fellow home from preschool today unwell and he has spent a big part of his day just whinging.
Living with teenagers is very consuming and I agree that some aspects are far more demanding than with little ones.
Hope you get what you want to do done in time for the weekend.

Best wishes Ribbon :-)

Thanks heaps Ribbon. I probably should have mentioned that I am on a diet and I am probably coming accross as cranky. Im not cranky really, Im just crazy from lack of junk food. I must be going through withdrawals lol :)

You're allowed to be cranky... drink plenty of water as it should help with the sugar withdrawals... or maybe one little piece of chocolate to get you through :-)

best wishes Ribbon

Oooooh I love that crazy from lack of junk food excuse!! I am going to use it!!
And don’t feel bad, we are all just humans so with all of the curtness of our children yes they do can drive us mad.
Stay sane =D

Please, please, please don't tell me they were less distracting as toddlers! I will have no hope!!!

Nah, I get the same if mine are lounging around and I'm belting about cleaning, washing . . I just end up yelling at them to 'do something' it doesn't really matter what as long as they're working as hard as me! I'm dieting too but relented last night and had chardonnay for tea! Damn!

Levin (and Emily) March 26, 2009 at 10:40 PM  

i know exactly what you mean. i also hate it when the lounge around whilst you wash and clean and cook and then they say....'are you busy at the moment'..... ARGHHHHHH
but like you, i love them dearly and i know that one day i will miss their lounging around and their company - so we must breathe :)
