I broke down and sent Starling back to school on Wednesday. It was just too hard on me having her home all day, although she was a lil’ angle the entire time and hardly bothered me for a second. Merlin would have been asking a million questions but Starling quietly went and found educational shows on the television. As a matter of fact, she now has me recording something called General Hospital (maybe she will be a doctor someday!) and My Strange Addiction for her every day! It was still pretty cold out when she went back on Wednesday, but my lil’ rebel wanted to “look pretty” so she wore a lovely spring dress. Her old nag of a teacher called me to tell me that Starling HAD to go outside so she needed appropriate outdoor clothing in the winter, blah, blah, blah. I gave her a piece of my mind and now Starling will be allowed to go and sit in the office and read if she chooses not to dress for outdoor play.
Röbert was out of town and missed all of the snow fun. He had the nerve to complain to me about his business trip. He said the planes were all delayed, it was all pretty boring, and he spent a lot of time in hotel conference rooms and visited some kind of plant or something. I have no idea, I was so furious that I couldn’t even hear him. I am sure that all of us stay at home moms would love a few days of pampering at the Holiday Inn Express in Duluth, and he needs to just pipe down!
I am so tired, right down to my core, that I will have Röbert take care of dinner for the kiddos and I will pamper myself with some spa treatments and a Lifetime extravaganza in my bedroom tonight. I think my good friend Joe Merlot might stop by too!
