      Taylor is driving me crazy with all of this driving around.
      I already wait in the pickup line for 45 minutes everyday, and now she has me driving her back and forth for all of these other things.
      She went out Saturday and Sunday, then I had to drive her to get her hair done Tuesday, and then again, drive her to get her nails done Wednesday….the wait time between those two things was 6 hours!
      I know she wants to go to the football game for Friday and out bowling Saturday…. and tonight (still Thursday for me) she was talking about me taking her to the JV away football game.
      I finally freaked the hell out on her and kinda lost my cool about doing all of this driving and sitting and waiting. She didn’t think the away game was that far away…cause it’s only like 20-25 minutes, but then I explained that I have to do that 4 times…drop her off, come home, go pick her up, then come home…that’s almost 2 hours driving so she can go to a football game.
      And like I said, I already sit outside the school everyday for 45 minutes and I’ve already spent 6 hours waiting for her at the salon this week.
      I need a break!
      I told her that her and her friends need to get with the other parents so we can share some of this driving…she’s always volunteering me to drive her friends around…which I have never had a problem with, but like I said, enough is enough. I need time for myself, too.

      My parents never drove me around d this much and I would have never asked them to.

      I hate the fact that I yelled at her, and I did apologize, but, man, I am tired and not looking forward to filling up my gas tank AGAIN.

      Sorry for the rant…I am in a foul mood LOL

      How are y’all doing?

      Oh yeah thats way to much driving around especially during the week. She needs to limit it to like 1-2 things max a week and she should do extra chores to help pay for gas.

      Luckily I dont have to wait in school lines. The high school is one street behind me so Ally walks  and Jennys school is a 7 minute walk down the street and around the corner. If its raining I drive to the end of the street and walk in that way. The junior high is a bit further. I used to park at the church across the street and Ally would walk to my jeep .I still had to deal with traffic but I was home in under 7 minutes .

      @xfilesgirl75 yeah, I see other parents parking in different spots and the kids hoofing it to the cars…I think I’ll try to coordinate something like that with her.
      Have a good night 🙂

      Oh my goodness Michelle, that is an awful lot of running around for you to do. I don’t blame you one bit. I think you’re being exceptionally nice. Enough is enough. It’s no wonder you lost your cool.
