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

Lisa · August 20, 2007 at 3:09 pm

Great post. I need those signs:)

Hannah · August 20, 2007 at 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 at 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 at 3:18 pm

I hope that your day gets better!

Joa · August 20, 2007 at 3:36 pm

Excellent le panneau!

corey · August 20, 2007 at 3:53 pm

goodness…that does say it all!

Priya · August 20, 2007 at 3:53 pm

Blue Mondays dont worry there definitely will come a Friday cheer up , heres a smiley for u :)

Amanda Brown · August 20, 2007 at 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 at 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 at 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 at 4:37 pm

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

Teresa · August 20, 2007 at 4:42 pm

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

Beth · August 20, 2007 at 5:00 pm

Interesting sign! Where did you find it?

Christina · August 20, 2007 at 5:04 pm

Time for a vacation!:)

lace · August 20, 2007 at 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 at 5:16 pm

Funny signs. =)

Alexia · August 20, 2007 at 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 at 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 at 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 at 6:10 pm

I could use one of those at work!!

Ness · August 20, 2007 at 6:12 pm

Looks like she is having fun.

Laura · August 20, 2007 at 6:37 pm

:D at the sign.

Cherylyn · August 20, 2007 at 7:08 pm

Have a great evening, hope it turns around soon!

Michelle · August 20, 2007 at 7:22 pm

Uh oh, hope tomorrow comes quickly for you, and everyone you meet on Tuesday has a much better disposition!

Diane · August 20, 2007 at 7:42 pm

I was having one of those days until I won!!! Yeah!! thanks for bringing some fun into my otherwise ho hum world!!

PamW · August 20, 2007 at 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 at 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 at 8:19 pm

I hope tomorrow is a better day!

nikkapotamus · August 20, 2007 at 8:22 pm

It looks like your daughter is having a great time in Brazil. What a lucky girl! I hope your day gets better!

Damselfly · August 20, 2007 at 8:27 pm

I love how the sign has both a smiley face and a frowny face@

Angella · August 20, 2007 at 8:55 pm

I need to get one of those, along with one that says:

Hope you have a better day tomorrow!

PamW · August 21, 2007 at 10:25 am

You should get some signs like that to sell on the baby marketplace under “for mom”. lol.

Lucy · August 21, 2007 at 11:43 am

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

Diane · August 21, 2007 at 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 at 12:26 pm

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

Deep breaths!

Carey · August 21, 2007 at 12:31 pm

Glad to hear your daughter is doing well.

Karyne · August 21, 2007 at 1:10 pm

Hope you have a better day today! I like your daughter’s blog!

carol · August 21, 2007 at 1:32 pm

I hope you are having a better day.

Mr.Mommyknows · August 21, 2007 at 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 at 2:55 pm

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

Deanne S. · August 21, 2007 at 3:39 pm

you should sell those signs on your website!!

Paige · August 21, 2007 at 5:09 pm

Love the sign. I have one that says “Be nice or Go away.”

Cathy · August 21, 2007 at 9:05 pm

Catherine · August 22, 2007 at 10:02 am

Great sign, I need one at my house for the teenager.

Diane · August 22, 2007 at 11:59 am

Hope things have turned around for you!!

MICHELLE · August 22, 2007 at 12:22 pm


PamW · August 22, 2007 at 12:23 pm
