Not sure how this happened...but me and Bio are home and the rest of the family is enjoying a nice drive and early dinner out on a beautiful Sunday.
I think it went something like this:
"Hey what should we do today? Let's do one of the things on Paraguay's Must See list! How about Venice?"
"Ummm I have homework."
"Ok, well how long do you think it will take?"
"I don't know??!!"
"Can you guesstimate?"
"Arrggg about three hours I guess..timate" -- Whoa no need to mock me.
"Ok then if you start now, you can be done by 1:00. We can go then. Walk around, sight see, shop and have a light dinner."
"Why not Precious Lovely Creation of mine?" probably not verbatim
"Because if I am gonna do homework TODAY, I want to spend the whole day doing it and get stuff done for later in the week." My my my, what a go getter
"Well that is really great honey, but could you do three hours now and some when we get home?"
"No Maamm I can't"
"We should have done a family day yesterday and we DIDN'T. Today is Sunday" Yeah, so??
"So you don't want to try to go somewhere today because we didn't go on Saturday?"
...I am trying to recall yesterday, which seems likes months ago. What did we do? Was she bored all day and begging for rides that I refused? Did she want to do something with us and we said no? What didn't I do yesterday that has her punishing me today? hhhmm? I did read for a while....solo. I did nap for a while...solo...
OH YEAH... she went out to lunch with Paraguay and her BFF to her favorite fast food and then to the mall. Then she babysat..which she loves cause she loves to make money (that's my girl). WTF???
Well I am really confused now and to make matters worse the hub says lets go to Santa Barbara. I tell him we just did that a few weeks ago, but he is suddenly completely deaf... funny, NOT. So the entire clan..well not Adorable 13 or Paraguay..ok just Hub, Bio and me..ok just me and Bio.. are all pissed off and in separate rooms.
Next I hear the shower going. Then hub walks by dressed and smelling good and says "Let's Go"
"To Santa Barbara"....(Really???? No really?)
"We just went to Santa Barbara and I think it is a little late in the day for that trip." (Guess he can't hear me now either, cause no response...ARG!!!)
This pisses me off more but ok guess I will get ready to go...ARG.
Get in the shower, come out and they are gone. Yep left. I ask Bio if this is for real (cause I do spend a fair amount of time in the Twilight Zone)..Yep gone.
"Oh Mommy, I will call them and they will come back..They just left."
"NO DON'T...I DON'T WANT TO GO NOW!!!"
"So, just because they misunderstood you and left you are not gonna go?"
"They should have asked me again if I wanted to go" (They should have begged and pleaded with me, but I know that is completely unreasonable..in theory)
So off they went. I am sure they are having a blast. Bio is doing her homework and she seems fine about it and she will most likely get the entire weeks work done....She's happy!!
Me I am NOT so happy and the foot I shot myself in hurts along with my pride. Thank God it is wine time....
