Wish I was there . .
My passport is ready and I can be packed in minutes.

31 July 2006

When PH leaves . . .

  1. We eat hot dogs, pizza, and scrambled eggs for dinner (not at the same time).
  2. Everyone takes an afternoon nap including me.
  3. Finger painting occurs daily.
  4. I allow Hew to run around with no pants on, thus forcing him to use the potty.
  5. I clean various bodily fluids and certain solids off the floor as a result of #5.
  6. Dora and Arthur are now a daily requirement (if you don't know Dora and Arthur, don't ask - you don't want to know).
  7. When PH calls, I spend much of the phone call giving the phone the finger as I listen to him talk about how he went to dinner in a restaurant with his brothers and they actually had a few drinks (yes, I know this was after his Grandma's funeral, but I'm still here and he is in NY by himself - yes, I'm being bitchy).
  8. I yell "Stop fighting!!!!!!!!!!" 1,368 times a day.
  9. Using the sprinkler outside counts as bathing.
  10. I wonder in amazement why more single parents are not institutionalized and I understand why certain animal species eat their young.

Thanks for the correction - should read #4. It is funny - just not right now :)

Just found you, and I must say, I go far off the beaten path when hubby is gone also.
And, I love to travel also but can't seem to find the time to leave this hemisphere.... *sigh*
SO, jealous.

Hi Sunshine! Glad you came to visit. Having kids certainly cuts into the traveling, doesn't it?

Ha ha! I thought I was reading my own words for a minute!

You mean the sprinkler outside only counts for a bath when someone's gone?? Damn, I've been doing it all wrong...
