    Had days like that myself. Hope things turn around ASAP :-)

  • Lisa August 20, 2007, 3:09 pm

    Great post. I need those signs:)

  • Hannah August 20, 2007, 3:10 pm

    Ugh, sorry you’re having a bad day! Those signs are pretty cool though, I need to get me some!

  • OMSH August 20, 2007, 3:10 pm

    Kim, not entering the contest, but wanted to say I could stand a few of those signs to put outside my bedroom door from time to time. :)

  • Divrchk August 20, 2007, 3:18 pm

    I hope that your day gets better!

  • Joa August 20, 2007, 3:36 pm

    Excellent le panneau!

    goodness…that does say it all!

  • Priya August 20, 2007, 3:53 pm

  • Amanda Brown August 20, 2007, 3:58 pm

    I got here via Dutch Blitz and wow, you’ve got lots going on in this little corner of the blogosphere! Meeting Jen, a bazillion contests to orchestrate, wow. Cool stuff, all of it!

  • Crabmommy August 20, 2007, 4:07 pm

    MK! Hmm. The Crabmommy does not adore a sign that does not invite her to bitch, whine, moan and otherwise grump. As you well know, this is my sole reason for breathing.

    But mostly I am posting just to send you my regards as your good friend in the blogosphere. You are far too generous, lassie. I hope this largesse comes back to you tenfold. I am sure if not in this life but then in the next you will find yourself amid a sea of freebies. May a bounty of children’s footwear and stripey socks be upon you now and forevermore!

    Oh and people, if you visit MY blog in August I may give away another bottle of Momspit…

  • glittersmama August 20, 2007, 4:23 pm

    They should make that bottom sign into buttons that I could wear to work. If I was still working.

  • Andrea August 20, 2007, 4:37 pm

    Awww…yeah, well, hopefully things are lookin’ brighter tomorrow morning!!

  • Teresa August 20, 2007, 4:42 pm

    Funny signs! Hope your day is looking better……or just keep thinking of tomorrow :)

  • Beth August 20, 2007, 5:00 pm

    Interesting sign! Where did you find it?

  • Christina August 20, 2007, 5:04 pm

    Time for a vacation!:)

  • lace August 20, 2007, 5:11 pm

    I think it is the weather. The 3 year old had a meltdown because her grandma would not play hide and seek with her because she was making lunch. Then the light was to bright and she scratched her eyebrow. My Goodness.

    I have also been in a blueish mood today. I have not wanted anybody to talk to me. I just want to sit at this computer all day.

  • serina August 20, 2007, 5:16 pm

    Funny signs. =)

  • Alexia August 20, 2007, 5:19 pm

    Love the sign! Need the sign! (although I think my momma would have a heart attack if she seen that posted *haha*).

    Mondays are always days for me too.

  • Deb August 20, 2007, 5:35 pm

    The sign wouldn’t work for me – my complainers are my kids and they can’t read!

  • Deb on the Rocks August 20, 2007, 6:01 pm

    The sign on my door says “If you are whining, there better be blood, or there WILL be blood.” It works!

  • Michelle August 20, 2007, 6:10 pm

    I could use one of those at work!!

  • Ness August 20, 2007, 6:12 pm

    Looks like she is having fun.

  • Laura August 20, 2007, 6:37 pm

  • PamW August 20, 2007, 8:05 pm

    Now that the day is almost over I hope it’s gotten better, and of course I hope tomorrow is a much beter day.

  • Joi August 20, 2007, 8:05 pm

    “Momma said there’ll be days like this.. There’ll be days like this my momma said”… Sounds better when you are singing it!

    Hope your days get better

  • Heather August 20, 2007, 8:19 pm

  • PamW August 21, 2007, 10:25 am

  • Lucy August 21, 2007, 11:43 am

    I am so excited to read about Hayley’s trip!

  • Diane August 21, 2007, 11:50 am

    I would like to know how did you get started blogging? It seems like it would be a good hobby, but time exhaustive.

  • Jenn Walker August 21, 2007, 12:26 pm

    Difficult people tend to enter our lives all at once don’t they?

    Deep breaths!

  • Mr.Mommyknows August 21, 2007, 1:48 pm

    Seriously if you are a bitcher or a complainer they won’t even let you in the camp site…

    I wish I could put a sign up like this at my work, maybe i’ll give it a try and see how it works.

    Mr. Mommyknows

  • Naomi August 21, 2007, 2:55 pm

    I could probably deal with bitching or complaining for one night, but that’s about it…

  • Deanne S. August 21, 2007, 3:39 pm
