:( Sad & grumpy, Down in the dumpies :(

My little sister, Nicole, used to sing a song:


It's alright to cry. Crying gets the sad out of you. It's alright to cry. It might make you feel better. Sad & grumpy, down in the dumpies. Hoppy, happy, sloppy, sappy. Change & change & change.


It's getting to the point where I feel like I'm walking around with tears covering my eyes. You know how you sometimes feel like your eyeballs are having to suck back tears so you don't look like a "big bawl baby"? That's me. I miss my kids. I want them home. They've been gone 4 weeks and the last 4 days I haven't been able to get a hold of them. They have a cell phone- but voicemail is picking up on the 1st ring. That leads me to believe it's turned off. I've called their cell twice, and left a message at the house twice. I've also sent 3 text messages. Nada. The whole reason we sent the cell phone with them was because it was always so hard to get a hold of them. I'd leave message after message after message that they would say they were never given. Why? Why does this happen? How hard is it to say "Your mom called. You need to call her back"? I have never withheld phone messages from the kids from anyone. Why do I get this treatment? I'd like to say "Payback is a bi-otch!" but I'm not like that. So, instead I'll award "him" and "her" a Tad award. And I know just where they can stick put it...

Hugs to you Tori! I would want to reach out and strangle those guys! I hope you get to talk to your kidlets soon! Love you.

So sorry, Sister! Mom and Dad said the kids were over there earlier in the week when I talked to them. That would be so stressful and frustrating. Do you want me to open a can? Just give me their number.

Amanda said...

Oh Tori, I'm crying for you. That is so mean and nasty to do to you. How dare they keep them from their mommy and you from them! I say send your sister over there with the can of....

They shouldn't take their phone. That's just ridiculous. I'm so sorry. If you really want me to, I'll drive the four hours and kick 'em for ya! Why is it that men who cheat on their wives want to in turn blame it on you and then cause you hell for the rest of your life?! One day there will be retribution, you hang in there!

Lauren said...

Grrrr! I am so mad right now! They so deserve a Butthead award...I just invented it for them!

Here is me giving you a hug:

txmommy said...

Suzanne said...

That's just hurtful and wrong. I'm so sorry... Your kids will be so happy to see you when they return home. Then your heart will be full again! :)

utmommy said...

So sorry. Hang in there!

CHEL said...

What a bummer... so sorry! The kids will be so excited to get home!!

Chrissy said...

I am so sorry! I can't even imagine how sad you must be feeling. I plan to keep you my thoughts and pray that they will get the messages and call soon!

Dana said...

That stinks that you can't get a hold of them, but if the cell service is Cingular, I will say that we have been having a real hard time with service because of all the rain. I went for 2 days while I was in Austin not being able to get in touch with my husband. Straight to VM every time. Hope you get in touch with them soon and if you need me to {cough, cough} go take care of someone, just let me know; I'm only an hour away!

In this modern age of technology with texting, e-mails, phones, there's really no reason to not allow some sort of contact with the very woman whose loins these kids sprung from. Don't they assume that you're interested in what the kids are up to? Bunch of heathens.

See ~ I'm not the only one who gets pissed when someone else has my kid & doesn't answer the phone or return calls. That's SO not cool! Especially when you've given the kids their own phone. What if there were an emergency?! I'm w/your sis ~ you know I'll track 'em down if you need me to.

That SUCKS! I am so sorry. I would be crying my eyes out if I wasn't able to make contact with my babies either. I hope you can chat with them soon. Hugs to you, my friend.
