that reorganizing Mama's kitchen cabinets without Mama's active participation will ALWAYS make Mama see red.....

........without sounding like a PMSing bitch?

I was not successful in avoiding that tone. 

Yeah, I know it's currently not well organized, but damn it, it's MY mess, and I know where everything is.  And if Dad crams stuff in the wrong place and messes up my order, at least the both of us know where things are at, which is the biggest reason why it's a mess.  And I DO NOT feel like being Martha Stewart today.  And I don't care if it's not pretty.  I just don't want to deal with it NOW.

This is not the right day to push my buttons.

LOL, I just thought that was a given!

*hug* I'm sorry you're having such a grinchy day. It happens to the best of us, I guess...

It does seem to happen from time to time...especially when people mess with my stuff...LOL.

Can I just let you know how much I love your tags?
Aug. 31st, 2009 11:43 pm (UTC)
You may indeed! LOL.
Sep. 1st, 2009 12:02 am (UTC)
Well then...
*clears throat*

Your tags make me happy in a bleak, ARG-type (similar to yours!) day. ^_^

Errrr... It happens, people do not understand that -even with the best intentions- it's better not to do it.

:Pats head: Tomorrow, maybe, you'll be able to enjoy it!

Luckily I stopped it before it had gotten too far...LOL.

" Tomorrow, maybe, you'll be able to enjoy it!" More likely, tomorrow you'll be able to explain to the well-meaning one WHY he shouldn't have done it without punctuating anything with a skillet.
Bottom line, it's not his kitchen and it's not his stuff, so he should keep his damn hands OFF!

Exactly my feeling!

Ooooohhh...there's no excuse for that. That catches the death penalty in this house. And I can't imagine what it must have taken for you to keep the rage at a minimum.

Don't worry, lady. Nobody wants to be Martha Stewart. It comes with a level of bitchiness that I'm not sure anyone could handle.

*refrains from pushing buttons*

He means well. And I was already feeling bitchy, but I was able to not make it totally a scene. Sigh.

I'd much better be some compulsive writer like Georges Sand, who I believe, was said to have wrote the final chapter of one book, then immediately began her next book. Ah, to be that compulsive...LOL.

*blinks* Your son reorganized your kitchen? The only thing my boys do in the kitchen is stand with the refrigerator door open while asking, "What do we have to eat?"

But, I know the feeling. I have a wonderful, well-meaning mother AND a wonderful, well-meaning mother-in-law, and they both like to "help" me that way. So, I just grin and bear it and slowly start putting things back where they belong after they leave, muttering to myself the whole time. My favorite knife has been MIA for over a month now ...

You're nicer than me...I just see red....LOL.
Sep. 1st, 2009 03:43 am (UTC)
Hehheh! Nope. I'm not nicer at all--in fact, the problem with the way I try to handle it is that Mason ends up being the one who has to listen to me fuss and complain when I can't find things. So, he'd probably rather I let it out at the actual offenders. But I'd rather they "help" me by reorganizing the kitchen instead of my papers, books, or closets. Then I would have to go ballistic.

Whoaaaa! That is not cool at all! I don't blame you for being upset. No matter how noble the gesture, he has to first realize that it's YOUR kitchen!

That's like when my mom would come into my room and throw my stuff out in the name of 'tidying up'. She tried that again one time when I gave her the keys to my apartment so she could feed my cat while I was away, and I flipped my shit.
Sep. 1st, 2009 02:42 am (UTC)
Yeah, I bet you did. I can hear that!
Sep. 1st, 2009 01:40 am (UTC)
Oh, do I soooooo sympathise!!!!!!!

I had ONE HELLOVA TIME(!!!!) getting my kids to leave my kitchen alone!!!!!!

Even if it was a mess (so they said....grrrrr!!!!!) I...and Serge, have always been able to find anything and everything that we need. Everything has always been 'orgainised' in our own very special way!

Old saying....'If it ain't broken then don't fix it!' That goes for my kitchen, too!

Hope that you made your son understand that...even if you appreciated his help, that you like things just fine the way that they are.

Ahhhh, young-un's. Gotta love 'em. They are only tryin' to help, after all.

He did mean well, but I think I made it clear that he has to work with me, and catch me when I wanna do it.
Sep. 1st, 2009 03:36 am (UTC)
That is really the only way to go with our offspring. They mean well, but almost always don't stop to think about the way that we work and the way that we want our things to be organised.

I know that they mean well, but could they at least ask our opinion???

Sep. 1st, 2009 03:19 am (UTC)

Sorry, I empathize entirely too well.

Bighugs. And Scotch. Scotch makes everything better. Or at least fuzzier.
Sep. 1st, 2009 03:44 am (UTC)
Aww, he was trying to do something nice for you...and completely failed!
Sep. 2nd, 2009 05:28 am (UTC)
*hugs* my husband, when we were first married tried to help me out by throwing away some of my stuff. he knows never to do that again.

at least it hasn't been taken away by the garbage men-- you can find it all and put it back where it's supposed to be.

i wouldn't be able to NOT sound like a PMSing bitch.

kudos to the kid for wanting to help-- i'm usually dragged out of my comfy home to mate my daughter and son in law's socks-- far be it for either of my kids to even think of offering to help me out.
