Holy crap there never seems to be a break!
This morning we're getting ready for Ireland, packing the kiddo's bags for the weekend and trying to just get things done.
First thing, Colin broke the washer. This thing has been rigged like crazy because my husband REFUSES to buy a new washing machine. Don't ask me...I have no clue.
So this morning, the stupid door broke completely...so what does he do? He goes to the hardware store and gets one of those straps that you crank tight...and he wraps that around the washer and tells me it's fixed. And he has the stupidest smile on his face...like he just won a contest. Like this is....fun. Meanwhile, I'm stomping around, fuming because the things I want to say I probably shouldn't say.
You know what I mean? It's like trying to plug a leak in the Hoover Dam with just my lips. It's that hard for me to not say something vicious.
I love him, but damn he's cheap.
And he knows it...and he'll laugh his butt off when he reads this. Either that or he'll be shamed into buying me a new washing machine. I'm hoping for the latter. :0)
Noodle's got a cold, and then i got an email this morning from Dell saying that my order has been canceled because they couldn't get payment verification from my credit card. Come on!!
I almost wanted to say to the Dell guy, "There is money in there. We have a very high limit and there is PA-lenty of room. Wanna know how I know that? Because I married the cheapest man alive and he won't even buy me a new washer. That's how I know our credit card works, buddy."
Hi, my name's Jan and I have full conversations out loud with people I haven't really spoken to. If they're very lucky, my children will ask me who I'm talking to and I will say, "Mommy's just singing, baby."
In spite of all the insanity, we're very excited about this weekend!! I feel so bad, though, that Norah has a cold. But I just spoke with Jenny and her little guy has a cold, too, so it's ok. One cold negates another. That's how it works with kids.
So I need to finish packing....and I'm hoping I can get the strap on the washer open so I can put Bear in the dryer. Jenny probably won't let me leave the country if the Noodle doesn't have the Bear.
So, until Tuesday! Gotta run! Ciao! :0)
