So, it was a snow day here…who would have guessed that after 70,000 inches of snow we would have a snow day. The new twist was that school was called the night before, so I with that knowledge, drank wine last night (planning we would not be in a rush today…)
Okay, back to my “rant”…. After a day filled with non stop complaining: I’m hungry (as I clear breakfast dishes), can we watch a movie (not that one), can we get dressed ( normally the beg to stay in jammies-but, not today), can we go outside (only to have the front doorbell ring with kid 1-cold, wanting to pee-as I send the last child out the backdoor). I get the kids to bed.
I sit down in favorite chair, grab my computer and start to think of what I will make for valentines cards…all the while with my husband sitting next to me on the couch…nice, right? Calm? Some might even say bonding.
My husband gets up and disappears, leaving NOVA (PBS) on. A) we never watch this and B) I had on a show of my own when he came in, grabbed the remote and switched it to NOVA. Time goes by…no return. I finally get up and hear the TV on upstairs? Turn off everything downstairs, close up the computer – all the while confused on being ditched. I then realize I can not turn off the TV since I can’t find the remote so I actually have to WALK up to the TV to turn it off. The torture.
I head upstairs and ask- I thought we were hanging out? Him: Yeah, I got bored of that show, and as it turns out there is nothing else on. Me: Well, why did you leave me with it on?” Him: I couldn’t figure out what I did with the remote, so I couldn’t turn the channel or turn the TV off.
I so should have had wine tonight.
I will tomorrow night…
