Camping without Mom
Andrew had the week off. It has been the only time off he has had in a long time. And he wanted to go camping. So he checked out some spots on the web and then called and reserved one. I was in one of my famous moods so I threw a huge fit about how much work it is for me to pack and get ready. Being an educated man he decided to pack everything and get all that we need ready and loaded by himself while I watched my DVR recordings of Oprah and American Idol. That way I couldnt possibly be upset right? So then I had a HISSY FIT over the fact that he went to the store and got everything ready without me. If you were to ask my family though they might say --hissy fit-- is a massive understatement. But thats just too bad cause I am the blogger here so I get to tell the story from my perspective. Any way I refused to go thinking my husband would sweep me up in his arms and lay me down on my bed, give me a foot massage then paint my toe nails an adorable pink and I could forgive him. Being an accountant he choose not to loose the $30 on the reservation and went ahead and took the kids without me. Please note as well that none of the kids choose to side with me and stay home standing up to the injustice that I had to endure.
Bottom line---they had a miserable time without me as the pictures will show and the camping spot was a complete dive. In the end I win every time and don't you ever ever forget it!
