    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I feel like I've been getting peeved a lot lately, but I ran into something yesterday that I just have to get out. I stopped at Target on my way home from work and there was a girl there with her parents. I would put her at around 12 years old. I'm not the best judge of age, but she definitely looked older than my 10 year old. This child was throwing a whining, begging, fit that I could hear SEVERAL aisles away (literally). As she walked by me at one point with her father she was hanging on his arm and doing this fake, hyperventilating, crying thing that was so obnoxious I wanted to walk up to her and tell her to knock it the heck off!! I would not have tolerated that from my children at ANY age and I could not believe her parents were putting up with it at all, much less in a public place!! GAH!!!

    That's awful. Makes you wonder how she behaves at home if that is public behavior.

    Sounds like the brats in the pool at my complex -- which brings me to my good (?) news: we're moving into an apartment in a (much) quieter section of our complex. The bad news? Moving. After having been in the same place for 12 years. Management used to enforce the "quiet clause" of the rental agreement, but no more. Oh well -- good motivation for getting rid of a lot of stuff we no longer use.
    But geez -- if you don't know how to discipline kids, don't effin' have 'em!

    I'm not going to comment because I had a difficult child. She was difficult from birth. The others didn't turn out like her, so it's at least part personality.
    My house closed yesterday and I spent the first night with my friend. I brought the dog in to my classroom today because it's just teachers' last day cleaning things out. I didn't want to leave him alone in a strange place. I'm going to look at a cottage for rent on a lake today. It is small, but has a fireplace.
    Count your blessings!

    That sounds like it could be wonderful. I hope it turns out to be just as good as it sounds!!

    I guess I won't be getting a new neighbor then. I'm sure it's a relief to you to close the deal.
