My daughter Liz, my son Eric
Now I remember why I have a journal...it's a safe place to share...vent...bitch... My family thinks blogs are stupid so they will never read this....ever...so here goes My husband's brother is here...he is running from whatever demons real or imagined from his latest home...he's going to their sister house in Michigan...he can't leave until Wednesday. Right now he's downstairs with the TV blaring...my husband will not say no to him, me? I am not afraid, I already told brother that nothing would be different in Michigan because he'd still be there, he is the problem. I told my husband I did not want this situation with him working and his brother here, but here he is... I went to a wedding yesterday, friends of my stepsons. I had been in the sun all day at the pool with the grand kids, I was burnt...I had fun at the wedding, knew many people. Only bitch yesterday was that Jacob threw a fit and screamed his head off when he had to go with his mom. He wanted my stepson, but my stepson went to a party...shame, that kid loves his daddy.
Tonight I chose to not take time off from Mrs. H's to go to a wedding that my son Eric was the best man. I love the groom, I used to come home to find him sleeping on my couch. Innocent childhood stuff. I misread the wedding invitation and got to the party right after they had served the food. The dress I wanted to wear was not right according to my daughter and husband...winter they said. I was so pissed I grabbed the dress I wear out of the dirty clothes pile, sprayed it with perfume and left. I did put it on first! My daughter was mad that we were late and smarted off I was so ticked that I got up from the table to leave. But did not as I was not ruining my evening for no one. The evening ended up being wonderful. My son thanked me ... he and the groom were happy I was there, they didn't mind my dress or me being late. Mrs H was a pain tonight, complaining about her help, wanting me to take sides. I used the complaining as a way to get out early. I made them talk to each other and then left.
My husband is working right now, calling me & complaining about everything...always complaining rarely acting ... I was miffed he had taken two days off of work to hang out with his old classmates, but refuses to take time off for my stuff...
But now I just remembered ... "this too shall pass"
I am tired , it's late and I get to referee Mrs H and her help tomorrow @ 8 am
My son Eric and I...this dress has seen 4 weddings but I like it
