Today I am outrageously grateful that KJ and I didn't have anyone sitting next to us on the plane ride home! I don't know if I've ever felt so deeply grateful. I could change her diaper without getting up, and later she slept on the empty seat. Heaven!
Today I'm Grateful For... - Page 6
Gosh, I haven't looked at the actual board of conversations in forever! I didn't know there were other threads started. *I'm a dummy*
Today, I'm grateful for an attentive, loving husband, a roof over our heads, our children and having a healthy outlet for the stress that they sometimes cause me. LOL
A roof over your head + rhubarb patch= being able to die happy
I LOVE making rhubarb preserves, rhubarb cake, rhubarb pie. I haven't had any of that in a LONG TIME.
Ooo... interesting! ;) glad everyone is okay!
I am thankful for my hubby's growing online business because it helped us buy a beautiful new computer desk and a new bookshelf, and Eli's toybox. The old ones were in terrible condition and I feared that if Eli pushed at the bookshelf one more time, the thing would collapse. Without the extra money trickling in, we would never have been able to afford the new furniture!
I had to work at 7am. The bug man came over at 9am to spray... He was still sleeping even though I reminded him the bug guy would be coming.
Well, 10am the bug guy calls me and says he can't wait anymore. I apologize immensely and tell him I understand. Strike one.
1030a, still no word from DH. I start freaking out because there's no way Conner is still sleeping.
I leave work to come home to Conner playing in our bedroom while DH sleeps. Strike two.
Conner's been up since 9am says DH. He hasn't been fed and had a shitty diaper. Strike three.
I fed him, changed him, played with him a bit, then had to go back to work. DH tells me to lay him down for a nap and if he doesn't sleep, he'll get him. Conner wasn't tired. I felt so unbelievably bad for him. I kissed Conner, apologized for his dad failing, then left while crying. I wanted to call in so bad. Strike four.
DH texts me on his way to work and lets me know he hit a raccoon on his way home the night before and it cracked his front bumper on his 5 month old car. Strike five.
Then he tells me he had to take the debit card to get gas because he spent the cash I'd given him the day before already... It was $60 and it was FOR GAS. Strike six.
I was just super over him yesterday. If you guys saw my status about missing Conner, it was totally for my DH. It took a lot not to tag him in it.
To hell with being grateful for a gun-safe! I mighta broke it open! I'm so sorry! :( He'll get better. You guys are still young. My DH used to be like that. I couldn't leave ANYWHERE without the kids until he was up and dressed. It made for me being late to appointments, work, etc. Not fun! If you haven't talked to him about it yet, you need to, so you don't have that "shoot him" resentment on your plate anymore. Cuz I SWEAR, it'll eat at you. Hugs, mama! I would've been crying too.
