This week is spring break for Merlin and Staring so we are all home together, making wonderful memories. I had thought we would be going someplace warm this week, but Röbert insists we can’t afford it. I don’t understand why he is being so cheap. I am sure we could afford a lovely little inn in Florida or something. He gets to go on trips all of the time. Right now he is in Macon, Georgia for 3 days, and that is fine, but the rest of us are just stuck here at home.
I got the kids up early this morning so we could make some cleaning memories, LOL. You would be absolutely amazed at what a child as young as Hummus can do. He scurries around under things scrubbing the floors like a lil’ machine. “Rub harder!” I tell him, and he does, with a giant smile. The cleaning liquid I have him using smells so strongly that I don’t like to use it, but the chemicals don’t seem to bother him at all, except for a lil’ rash around his eyes later in the day.
The older two, on the other hand, are acting a lil’ too good for cleaning up after themselves. Merlin claimed he was scared cleaning the gutters. You know given half a chance he would be scrambling all over the roof for fun like a lil’ mountain goat, but the minute I send him up there he is all, “Boo Hoo, it is too high. The roof is steep! Wah.” I had to stand in the yard until he was done because every time I went inside to talk on the phone he would start crying again. He was acting like a real baby.
I gave Starling some clothes to put away but the next thing I knew she was chatting on her phone with her friends. Girls! What can you do?
After lunch Starling went over to play with a new girl in her class. I have to say that I like Amber’s mother Cari a lot. She also loves to work out and volunteer at the children’s school. I think we might co-chair the end of year party and show these dopes how a party should be. Merlin went to play with those drippy twins. Every time I see Margie, their mom, I wonder if we are even the same species. She is so dumpy.
Then, since Hummus had fallen asleep in the car I did a lil’ shopping and bought myself a cup of tea to bring home and relax with. The first cup they gave me was wrong but I paid for it anyway and decided to bring it over to Ty’s, since it is the exact kind he always orders. He was so pleased to see me!
I am about to put the kids to bed and spend another evening as a lonely, single mom.
ETA: I just found Röbert’s old computer up in the attic in a locked trunk under a pile of tarps. It is last year’s model and he just got the new one last weekend and it is hardly used so I thought I could let one of the kids use it for schoolwork but I can’t figure out the password. I have tried “MyHotWife”, “ILoveMyWife”, “LahLeeisHot”, “Password”, “”HappilyMarried”, “MountainMan”, “ILoveLahLee” and “VeryHappilyMarried” and none of them work. Any ideas?
