back on the homefront

~E and I made it back today about 5pm. Excited? NOPE.

~Dad revealed that he really didn't want to stay 'til Monday in order to (1) avoid traffic on Memorial Day and (2) avoid the drama/chaos @ my sister's house, of which there is ALWAYS plenty. I find it entertaining actually. So all that to say, we are home.

~I had briefly hoped that just maybe some miracle would happen and the shelves that Milo jumped on and thereby caused to come out of the wall in E's room 2 weeks ago would now be re-hung. Good thing I have LOW expectations. O was apparently WAY too busy watching 4 episodes of Band of Brothers (whatever the hell that is) and getting take-out for dinner. Must be nice. I can't remember watching 4 episodes of anything in one sitting.

~Upon arrival today O notifies me that (1) there is nothing in the house to eat (his regular exaggeration) and (2) he didn't go grocery shopping. When I offer to go shopping BY MYSELF, he says "can't we all go?"....WTF? Didn't E just spend 4 hours in the car and would much rather just play outside? And wouldn't I LOVE to have 1 hour to myself? Yes and Yes. Do I get my way? No. Never. Of Course Not. So all 3 of us go to stupid wallyworld and guess what....who do you think did ALL the work? Yep, that would be me. O spent his time playing/running around the store with E (so he didn't have to ride in the cart). Well, what in the heck would have been the difference if they would have stayed home? This is one of MANY reasons why I will go insane WELL before my time.

~I currently have NO plans for tomorrow. O mentioned that he has a couple hours of work to do so I guess it's just E and I. Maybe we'll lay in bed all day...yeah cuz a 15 month old would really want to do that, right?

~And THANK YOU to all of you who voted, even those of you who voted "who cares". Looks like I'll be waiting another gazillion years for that camera.

~Happy Memorial Day!

Sounds like O needs to get off his duff and do something to help!

I believe O needs a week of no dinners/grocery/laundry on your end.

I am sorry things have been so tough for you lately :(

I voted to get it, too! Looks like you could use a little pick-me-up.

So... he sat there & was willing to starve rather than go to the store & shop while you were gone? ::shaking my head::
