I Got Nothin'

I really don't have anything to talk about today. Hubby left last night and will be gone until Wednesday night so it's just me and the boys. Last night we had sandwiches for supper and tonight I'm thinking cereal or hot dogs. Hell, I may even take them to McDonald's. I'm super mom, I know. Plus I scrubbed my kitchen yesterday from top to bottom and with hubby gone I'm guaranteed it to stay clean at least until he gets back.

Things are going pretty slow around here. I was so bored last night after A1 and A2 went to sleep that I hung up everything that was piled up in my closet. You know the stuff I'm talking about...all the clothes I've been trying on as I work out to see if it fits yet. It was a pretty big pile and I had to steal hangers from hubby's side. I'll have to remember to pick some up the next time I go out so he doesn't realize it. He cleaned out his side of the closet over the weekend and had a bunch of hangers to spare. He said he wanted to hang up all his short sleeved shirts since I don't get his stuff out of the dryer while it's hot and it's all wrinkled. **Insert eye roll here**

What the hell is he thinking? Does he really think that I go in there and deliberately leave his stuff in there to get wrinkled? Does he really think I like to hear him bitch and moan about it every time he gets a shirt out of the drawer? Nope. Don't. Think. So. He just has so many that when I fold them and put them up, I may be guilty of cramming too many in a drawer at once, but where else am I going to put them? We have three dressers in our bedroom and they are all full of his shirts. Not to mention the ones that are already hanging up.

Moving on. A1 and I tried to watch a movie last night. It took us about two and a half hours to get through an hour and a half long movie. A2 can be quite demanding at times. He spent most of the night barking at the two of us or climbing on top of A1 and bouncing on him. We watched Just My Luck with Lindsey Lohan. Stupid. It was one of those where they tried too hard to make it funny. They could have cut out about half of their antics and it would have been better. After I cleaned out my closet I watched Legends of the Fall. It had been a while since I'd seen it. I picked it because at the time I was thinking it was the other Brad Pitt movie about him and his brothers, A River Runs Through It, but watched anyway. I'll tell you, I wouldn't kick that man out of bed for eating crackers. I was missing hub-a-dub so it took me until at least 3 to fall asleep.

Funny story. My parents both have iPods now and are addicted. My dad calls me for advice and I love it. My mom got hers over the weekend but by the time they called to tell me she already had over 100 songs on it. I swear they must lace those damn ear buds with crack or something so it can seep into your brain to get you hooked.

I have a question for you. Do you ever do something over and over again knowing that the end result is going to be the same and it's not very pleasant? I think the technical term for that is called insanity. So I guess I'm insane. Want to know why?

I'm sitting here with my right foot asleep and the left one is halfway there because every time I put my freaking shoes on I. Tie. Them. WAY. Too. Tight! I'm sure there is some deep seeded root as to why I do that. Maybe in my past life I didn't have shoes or someone stole them from me. Who knows.

A2 surprised me this morning. I was in the bedroom getting some socks out of my drawer when he came in there wagging the insert to his potty chair. He sat it down at my feet and started pulling at the front of his pants. I dropped the socks, yanked his britches down, undid his DRY diaper and held it up to him. He used it and then clapped his hands. Woo Hoo! That's the first time he's ever initiated using it like that. Way to go A2!!

I'm off to pull him in the wagon. It's good exercise and I can stick one ear bud in and listen to my iAppendage while we walk. I think I'm going to listen to the .38 Special I just got the other day. Hold on Loosely and Caught Up in You. After that I'll listen to Cher. She motivates me to take faster steps.

Have a good Tuesday. Can't wait til tonight when the "idulls" sing songs of the Bee Gees. I'm rooting for Blake.

I know exactly why you tie your shoes too tight. The uh Queen B (you know who) tied your shoes so freakin' tight you'd have marks on your feet! Well she did mine a few times so I'm assuming she did yours too. I'll never forget my Mom seeing that after spending the night with you. Anyway since then my shoes have to fit somewhat tight to feel right. Does that make sense? Prolly not. I ruined a few pairs of Eastlands back in the day because of that too.

Oh oh and something else I picked up while spending the night at your house was if my scalp doesn't almost bleed (slightly dramatized) when I wash my hair it's not clean! Strange what sticks with ya.

If you get bored again call me. I'm up till about 3am every night and bored too.
