|This woman is cheerful|
in comparison to SB.
This past Friday, Husband decided, in the morning, he would work from home. Awesome. Now, I am glad that he has a job where usually a phone and a computer is all he needs to work from home and that he has the luxury of doing that pretty much at his own discretion. But here's the thing, you can't just stay home and act like you belong here when you don't. Yes, it's his house too. Whatever. Go to work. Or, at the very least, don't wake up until everyone has gone.
|Awesome for some|
horrible for others.
Okay, so now children are gone. I go to get my coffee and head up to the computer before I have to get dressed and head out. What's this? Someone is in my way at the coffee maker. And in front of the fridge. And blocking the door out of the kitchen. I was not aware that the "work" Husband was planning to do at home was to interrupt my quiet, peaceful morning routine.
|Can you believe I |
actually found such
a perfect picture?
I have my coffee (no thanks to Husband) and am at the computer checking e-mail and Facebook, seeing if I have any comments on here at DTC, playing a few games...what's that I hear? Loudly. Obscure "classic" country music. One bad song after another. How many songs that I don't like could possibly be on his iPod and doesn't he have like 50 sets of headphones? And how can he do his work with the music that loud?
Please let me clarify. It's not that I do not love and adore Husband. He is all sorts of excellent. We do not have these issues on the weekend. My issue is weekday only stay-at-home-without-warning covert attacks. I am not mentally prepared to re-focus my energy on someone who is either under or over-caffeinated (depending on the time of morning) and who gets some sort of perverse pleasure from purposely vexing me.
Thankfully, I was able to recover and the rest of the weekend was fun and ran as it should with people being in or out of the house when they were supposed to be. Boy won his tennis match Friday. Yay. Girl's basketball team lost their playoff game, but it was a great game. The score was 32-29. A little bit yucky was the outdoor soccer tournament all day Saturday. No thank you winter-like cold temperatures in spring. The upside to the tournament was that it was in Delaware, so afterwards we got to visit with 4 of our favorite people.
1. It is important to be resilient in the face of adversity. My sunny outlook and belief that things would turn around kept anyone from needing medical attention.
2. If your significant other thinks their good looks and charm keeps them from seeming annoying, despite their behavior, disavow them of that notion ASAP.
3. If you are going to a soccer tournament, pee before you get there or you will have to use a port-a-potty.
