Last night feel asleep early, I do mean early. My husband and I had a rather rough day with a sick daughter and two grandkids that needed babysitting.
Now this is just a little sample of what the past few days have been like. Yes, they have been a bit hectic. While writing this just got a text from the sick daughter and I have a feeling that things may take another turn for the hectic once again.
Another text so yep, another turn.
Anyway, I hope I can continue this now.
I had literally passed out on the couch, no drinking involved, just tired as hell.
Now imagine you are in this deep sleep from pure exhaustion and suddenly you are awakened by the most gosh awful crash, rumble, thud that ends with the house shaking and your husband going oomph and you open your eyes to your hubby trying to crawl his way back up to his feet, no, there was no drinking there either.
“What the crap just happened?” I didn’t ask if he was OK, my bad, I just wanted to know how my usually very coordinated hubby nearly brought the house down.
“Nothing, go back to sleep.” He responded.
“Go back to sleep: after you nearly shook the house off it’s foundation.” I couldn’t imagine him thinking me sleeping after that was possible.
“The house didn’t shake, OK, maybe it did. Thanks for letting me know that I’m fat and my large ass nearly brought the house down.” My shock at this alone would have kept me up the rest of the night if it weren’t for the fact that he was suffering from humiliation from his close encounter with the floor.
“You’re certainly not fat and your ass still looks great so how about telling me how it happened?” OK, I admit my sympathy wasn’t very high at this point, but remember, I had just been awaked by my couch jumping across the floor.
“I tripped, OK. I was putting on my shoes and somehow managed to get tripped up by them.” You could tell he wasn’t happy.
Now there might have been another reason why I wasn’t particularly sympathetic to his misadventure. A few months ago I was going through the house and I managed to trip over something of his he had left on the floor, no I don’t remember what it was, and I not only tripped but went flying across a room and landed head first onto the top of my desk. I’m quite certain the house shook then as well but at the moment that happened, I didn’t give a crap. Also, we had a couple of quest at the time and they were standing next to my desk looking at something and it was a small wonder I didn’t take them out like a couple of bowling pins. So, sympathy be damn you ass, that was payback for what happened to me because of you, so suck it up.
Yesterday I got to spend the day with my youngest granddaughter. Mia turned three last month and is going on 300. Yes, I said three hundred. This child has a very old soul as they put it. I’ve never been really sure what they mean by that, but I know what I think it means.
Already she is a very opinionated individual who will let you know really quick how the cow ate the cabbage as my mother used to put it. This becomes much funnier when this three-year-old has the vocabulary of a child over twice her age.
For the most part she is an extremely well-behaved little girl when she is with me, but she does have her moments. When she decides to dig in her heels about something, the fight is on and I suggest you don’t take bets that she is going to lose when she does this. She can be quite tenacious when she gets like this. Yesterday she pulled one of those moments with me, but I know I’m bigger and a hell of a lot more stubborn, so it was a short contest. I won. Outside of this one moment the day was awesome. She was a total delight.
The fun started however in the early afternoon when I told her she could get the hose out in the front yard and pay in the water. I know have a fairly large mud flat where earlier in the day there had been a nice patch of green grass. Oh well, it will grow back. Below is a link to a video on YouTube showing a little of how that happened, and I was fortunate enough to catch one of those moment when a kid does something that makes you lose it. I mean funny. So, I hope you watch the video and enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the moment and the whole day with this awesome and very funny little girl.
