January Blahs

I have a serious case of the January Blahs.

James went night time ice fishing on a weeknight during tax season in a snow storm while he is sick with a cold. He doesn't see my reasoning that it might not be a good idea. If he comes home dead I'm gonna be pissed.

Our playgroup at the church was interrupted today by a group of five men who wanted to play basketball. There were 17 of us there (including kids). They were basically like, "Oh sorry that we didnt reserve the building, and usually we're here on a different day, but we don't really care that you are already here with all of your kids and all of your things and this is the first time today that you have had a moment of peace where your kids haven't been throwing tantrums at the Target/ wiping their noses on the couch/ spilling an entire box of Apple Cinnamon Cheerios on the kitchen floor that you just mopped, but we're here now and so you need to go home, get barefoot, and make dinner for your husbands." (At least that's the way I took it.) I was NOT going to leave. We were going to be there until 5:00. But then all the other moms started packing up their kids. WHY? I think women are too nice. To a fault. It was wrong for them to ask us to leave, and it was wrong for us to be so willing to do it.

I got a notice in the mail that Sparky's license is about to expire. GUESS WHAT DAVIS COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES? Sparky is dead. Thanks for the reminder.

Today on Facebook I read the following 'words': Adorbs and Presh. Apparently these are short for adorable and precious. It makes me want to throw up a little bit.

I think that's about it.

Haha, I love this Marianne... I totally would have stayed there @ playgroup with you. Until 5! Amen to what Caprene said.

Melody said...

I love this. You are so freakin' awesome! And I totally would have told them tough beans, brethren, why don't you go home and cook dinner for your wives?

Adorbs...? Don't get me started.

Love you. SO much!

I love it, Marianne! Thanks for the good laugh. :)
Oh and no offense to James;), but I heard night time ice fishing mentioned on the news a week or two back and thought to myself, "Who DOES that?". Well, now I know. Apparently James does. Haha. :) I don't get it, but more power to him!:):)

Too funny! Next time we will tell those men that we are happy to leave but the kids are staying :)

I love you Marianne! You are so real, I just love it. I agree 100% that you guys should have stayed, some men are pigs like that. And presh/adorbs makes me want to vomit too. The best part about this post is how you can say how it is and what you think and not be offensive... I think things like this all the time but it doesn't come out in a funny but true way. I just sound like a B.
