This morning’s scene at my house:
Time: 7:30 am.
What I am doing: sorting laundry, frying bacon, washing blueberries, loading the dishwasher, saving some of Husband’s work data to a floppy for him to take to the Tulsa office (2nd time I have done this, the first floppy became damaged when left out in the sun for several hours),….. answering the phone, chasing Toddler Terror down who has ran outside onto the front porch with a can of air-freshner while he is wearing nothing but a t-shirt and a pull-up that looks suspiciously full of pee.
What husband is doing: laying on the couch hypnotized by Sponge Bob.
As I race thru the living room to catch Toddler Terror before he sprays the air freshner into his eye, I give hubby my best narrow eyed, pissed off look. He just so happens to catch it and says all innocently “what?” I wrestle Toddler Terror back indoors, confiscate the spray can, and march him off to his bedroom to get dressed, all while making a detour to the kitchen to turn the bacon and hang up the phone. As I am walking down the hallway to the bedroom, I hear a faint “but, I love you” from hubby who still hasnt budged his ass from the couch. Okay, maybe I am being bitchy because those who know my husband personally know he is not lazy, far from it, he is the kind of guy who is always doing something, usually outside, he isint much on laying around and lounging. Maybe that is the reason I resent it when he does seldomly camp out on the couch. But, I am doing all those things at once for a reason, I want to get outdoors and something done before another round of thunder storms and rain rolls in. Oh yeah, my saturday is shaping up just fine…..the liquer store opens at 10 am. “domus dulcis domus” (home sweet home)
