I bet you thought this was going to be one of those sappy my husband is the greatest..and sometimes he is..but not today! I love my husband very much but today, today ....I need to remind myself why I love him.
Remember I have three grown adults living in my home, two dogs, a new puppy and an old man. I left for work at 9am and at 3pm the house was the same mess I had walked out on. No dishes done, no pick up, no vacuum, no nothing. I had the 'talk' with them and they looked at me like I was crazy.
Tonight we are having hamburgers which I put together yesterday. (I also made breakfast yesterday, cut up fresh fruit, made two roasts, mashed potatoes, corn, and put away enough homemade food for two more meals as well as making hamburgers for today and cooking two lbs of ground beef for the future).
I asked my husband to finish the dishes that I had started, he didn't, he did light the grill, I grilled the hamburgers, I fixed the old mans plate, I put his tray together, I fixed my own hamburger and was thinking about another one when I realized that my husband had made himself two double cheeseburgers using 4 hamburgers. The kids had already made themselves two and that left old man and me out in the cold. My kind, loving husband offered to take one of the ketchup smothered hamburgers off (I hate ketchup)for me and of course I declined.
Ok, I know I am venting, I know I have it good, I know I have a family who cares, food to eat and so on....but come on people...I can't get a break here.
Come tell me the on your nerve family moments. It doesn't mean you don't love your family it means you are all normal and frustrated with everyday life.
