Being a mom to lots of kids and a wife sometimes leaves a woman running in circles.
Now that most of the kiddos are out on their own I am noticing things still happening that I used to just think happened because we were all tripping over each other.
Here’s the tip of the iceberg:
1. Why can’t I have an uninterrupted phone conversation? I am here, awake all damned day and half the night and nobody in this house wants/needs to talk to me until the phone rings!
2. Can I use the bathroom ALONE…. PLEASE? Don’t talk to me from the other side of the door or from the bedroom. Just give me 3 minutes alone in the Loo and for Pete’s sake don’t let the frigging cats in!
3. There are plenty of chores to be done around the house… why do people wait until I am doing something in a room to begin a chore? I sit down to watch the news ~ time to vacuum! Trying to prep dinner ~ must be time to put away dishes and load the washer! Trying to read ~ trance/techno music mixing session!
4. I did not set my alarm for a reason… I don’t HAVE to be up early! If you’re going to be up early BE QUIET! Do not get the dog riled up and please keep the tv on low volume!
5. Sit down to write a little bloggy something and I get ~ have you seen my _insert thing-a-ma-jig_? Can you help me look for it? Do I look like google?????
Is it just me that this happens to?
Is it a mom thing?
Is it a wife thing?
I need wine!
Where did the corkscrew go?
Where’s my wine straw?
Everyone takes off like F-16’s leaving me to search alone!
I gotta pee….. come on kitties, let’s go to the bathroom.
