Nag, Nag ...Brag
That's me. The one on the left. Yep, the truth finally comes out. And you all thought you knew me so well, as that sweet, little ol' southern girl. I feel I can be honest here; I am going through MENopause, I am PMSing, I have the crud, and I had a sudden attack of my "mystery illness" today, and had to stay in bed till time for the bus to bring Stephen home. We all know how dear Stephen is to my heart, so I pour all of my frustrations out on the other guy. The one on the right up there. (my husband) Most of the time, I really am that sweet southern girl. But there's a few days out of the month that I am, let's say, a little hard to live with. (ie) Tues. night: I hate evenings after Stephen is in bed. That's when I get really busy. I have to pick up through the house, finish laundry, pick out his school clothes, pack lunch- you get the picture. I have these cravings when I am pmsing, like you wouldn't believe! I wanted popcorn with (real) butter. So, I microwaved some while I packed Stephen's lunch. After doing a few other chores, I finally was able to get my popcorn, go to bed and watch "Everybody loves Raymond" the only tv time that I have! Well, when I turned around, my hubby was sitting on the edge of the bed, eating my popcorn, watching the speed channel! That is about the time that photo up there was shot. Mm, hm. Over a stinkin' bowl of popcorn and the tv. I was so sick last night, I didnt do a thing, I went to bed after journaling ;P This morning when I got up, hubby had made my coffee, with my fave mug ready, had Stephen's clothes picked out, backpack ready to go, lunch packed, and Stephen's meds and b'fast ready. When I turned the tv on, he had already put it on Stephen's fave channel! Could he have been more thoughtful? But my question is this, why do I have to turn into that chic in the picture up there to get all those favors? Can anyone answer that?
