Where is the F**King Remote????

Yesterday had it's ups and downs.  Actually yesterDAY was awesome because T had to take C1 to an appointment and she brought the kids by the job to see me.  That made my day.

YesterNIGHT (i made it up) SUCKED.  Well kind of.  The kids were excited when I got home, C1 used some of his Bday money and got himself a new Wii game.  Toy Story3. 

Fast forward to bed time.  A little after 10 pm and the kids are in bed and I am looking for the tv remote.  Now let me explain that I am (here we go again) anal about certain things.  And keeping track of the remotes and keeping them in the correct rooms is something that drives me nuts.  The kids like to take them and switch them and I hide them and then I forget where I hide them.  The whole remote things just fucks with my head.  But that is me and I am just like that.

So I am looking for the remote last night.  I am looking all over.  Everywhere. In our room first.  Can't find it.  In drawers, nope!  Under bed?  Nope.  In bathroom, cloth diaper bin, did I hide it, in closet,  all of these NOPE!!!  T is telling me to just get the one out of the living room, but that won't work for me, it will changes channels but wont work the volume.  C3 who wont go to sleep, is helping me, checking every place that I already looked.  She is being positive and I am pissed at this point.

Living room, couch, loveseat, tv area, kitchen, kids rooms, kids bathroom, I even take my happy ass downstairs to look.  I am still red faced at this time and T can't believe that I am walking in circles looking for a remote.  I look in places that I have looked in 3 times over.

At this point I am shaking mad and want to punch something and curse so loudly and throw my 5 yr old temper tantrum.  But I dont.  Thats a victory in itself that I didnt flip out.

I finally break down after over 30 minutes and go get the other remote, turn the tv up to a decent level to watch Sportscenter at and get some lotion to rub on my arms, back, and chest.  That gives me an idea, but I don't go there. I am frustrated, but not that frustrated.
So I just lay in bed watch the rest of Sportscenter and then go to sleep.

So that brings me to this morning.  I get up early so I can go to the bank and I got an idea????

What is the one thing that can always make me feel better about myself when I am having these foul, mean, mixed up emotion over something so stupid (like a remote)???

Make fun of myself.  I am a clown, always have been, always will be......maybe
(gotta grow up sometime)

So here it is, my debut video featuring my new hit single


Followed by my cover of
this Disney Classic

Ok, so there you have it.

Now, today and tomorrow are going to drive me nuts.  I am so ready to go.
Tonight I have some simple goals in mind.
1. Help around the house to make it easier on T until we leave.
2. I need her to shave my back, while I man groom the rest of me.
3. (Based on facts)  I need to have a Pants Off Dance Off, because out of all the years we have taken this Disney trip we have only done the Pants Off Dance Off on the trip 1 time.  That was 2 years ago, when we conceived C4.  And since the ol boy is shooting blanks, I feel we either may or may not have a Pants Off Dance Off again in Disney.

HaKuna Matata people

Hakuna Matata! You are such a hoot!

And hey, at least you know how to work that remote. We got a flat screen TV a few years ago, my boys have their X-Box hooked up, DVD/VHS player, and then there's the remote that came with the TV. I have no idea which remote goes to what. I can turn the thing on, work the volume when I find the right remote, but don't ask me to change a channel.

Have a blast at Disney with the family!

I'm just like with you the remote...we have like 5 different ones that each have their own little job and it pisses me off when I can't find any of them. I even bought Tim a remote holder for Christmas which is NEXT to the tv but he can never be bothered to put them back!

Love your remote song...don't be surprised if you see it on YouTube one of these days!

I'm so envious you're going to WDW....have a blast!!!

Lol! My husband pretty much flips out each time we misplace the remote. My daughter doesn't seem to mind his "outbursts" because she has been intentionally hiding the remote in places we'd never suspect.

just the thought of looking for the remote makes me FURIOUS!!!! And with me, its not just the remote, it could be ANYTHING! Walking in circles, looking in the same places you've already looked, thinking, "Maybe its here and I just didn't see it!" So frustrating. I lived alone for much of my adult life, and am still having issues dealing with the fact that even if I leave something out of place, I KNOW WHERE I LEFT it and could come back at anytime and get it. These days, that's not so. Sometimes even a glass of tea can disappear! She's just trying to keep it clean, but damn! There was still TEA IN THAT GLASS! So I'll be walking around thinking "Was I even drinking tea, because if I was, I'm sure it was right around this its not here...maybe I've finally lost it!
In any case, I can't see these videos here at the office, but I'll be seeing them when I get home, lest you can attach 'em to an email...
