 So I got up at 8:00 this morning after not going to bed until 1am. Read my paper, ran the dryer and washer. Unloaed the DW, reloaded it, ran another load of laundry. Went to Church.
Came home, moved laundry around, folded laundry. Told CJ and Garrett to eat lunch and get ready for respective practices. Took CJ to his.... had to call John to let him knwo what time to get CJ, had to call again to have someone get Garrett soccer socks (why listen to Mom?).
John took down the Christmas lights, and started removing one of 6 tree stumps in our backyard.
I took Garrett to practice. Ran to B&N to get a bookmark for an exhange, then sat for over an hour at practice. Came home... NOTHING more was done. The DW is still hooked up. Someone took clean wet clothes out of teh bathtub and put them on the floor (my dryer will not take a full load from my washer, so my bathtub is my holding area). I had to move that around.
Apparently I need to decide on dinner and dessert for his dad and SO. While John sits watching TV....
I know he only gets 3 real days off of work, but where is my Day off???? He slept over an hour later than I Did and only woke up b/c Alex was banging on the big kids door screaming "Garrett let me in?"

 shh... I am close enough where I could stop Tuesday when I go to buy Mother's Day cards at Hallmark :)
I bought 2 total... one at k-Mart a serious one (it has a nice poem on it), and then a fun one at B&N.

 

Nope, John hasn't done crud to lend me a hand today! PITA, I just cooked dinner, and made cookies (thankfully I had frozen dough, for our dessert tonight with his Dad and SO)

My DH hasn't had a day off in awhile...he's been going nonstop the past couple weeks. Open to close almost every day, inventory, fundraiser book/bake/hotdog sales, VIP visits, etc. Doesn't look like he's taking much time off this week either until the weekend (he is salary...doesn't matter if he works 40hrs or 80...gets paid the same thing every week). He is exhausted...hasn't been much help when he is home either...

SO tries to pull that with me...that Sunday is his day off why does he have to do anything?  I told him he could either help and get some nookie or I could do it all by myself and he'd be SOL.  So he helped...and I fell asleep before he got rewarded.  LOL.

 lol... I think that is my mistake... I end up just going for the nookie whenever he's home.....
