My son woke up and laid on the couch.
I was at the dining room table within view of him reading the paper and drinking my coffee.
He asked me to cuddle.
I got up and went to the couch, with a big smile on my face, and proceeded to hug/snuggle with him for a few minutes. That makes it all worth while.
Yesterday I went out to the 3 local drugstores to try what I had read regarding deals on the Internet. I came home empty handed, its just as well, my in-laws were here and my mother-in-law would only have taken my inventory. “Did you need that?”
“Just because it was on sale are you going to use 5 of them?” “Where are you going to put all of that, as is I can”t open your cupboards for fear of being hit on the head”
As I have said before Everybody Loves Raymond was not just a TV show, it is my story! Don’t open the cupboards for goodness sakes, if you need something ask, don’t complain! She actually was very good and we had a lovely day, they brought my niece who is my son’s age and they get along great. Probably because she has 2 older siblings and she lets my spoiled son get his way. Good for her, she can handle him very well and Uncle Me gives her what all Uncles should have for their nieces and nephews – LOADS of candy (do I still need to add, bought at half price?)
We all dine together at the half price lunch at the local Japanese/sushi joint which both of our parents thoroughly enjoy. Its like the bar where every one knows my name (the old days), in this case every where they sell food they know me!
Today we had a meet and greet with my sons new teacher (not really new, just returned from maternity leave). Boy is she going to have all of us working! Upper and lower case letters have to be correct already! He couldn’t finish the huge book she gave him for homework and he was totally into the subject matter, Snakes! He’s such a boy!
I barely made it to the gym to stretch and gossip, no time for the workout. My spouse had received a shirt from his dad that his dad received from XMAS and couldn’t use. My spouse failed to advise me that he was not going to wear it and there was a receipt in it. A RECEIPT! ARE YOU CRAZY! IN MID JANUARY! I may lose value for the return, how could you not tell me! I was wondering why this wrapped item in a shopping bag was on his dresser for a week.
I showed him. I returned the shirt and got full value and it was EXPENSIVE from SAKS. EXPENSIVE! I do not know why the clerk let me put the credit on my AMEX but no questions needed to be asked – that’s a freebie from my higher power, usually the store wants to make sure you spend the money in their store. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth!
Thats how I afforded the gorgous Emporio Armani t-shirt on sale at Armani, even though it doesn’t fit. DOESN’T FIT YET I mean.
