The Week At Home

Yes, I'm going to need something to get through the week. Stamina. Prayer. Valium. Something.

Sweetie is bored. When he is bored, it costs money.

Yesterday, it was take the kids to the zoo, and out for lunch, and then to a movie for the evening.

Heaven only knows what he will want to do to occupy his time today.

When he is not occupied, he is a chatterbox. That's fine when we are sitting and just spending time together. It is difficult to deal with when I have to get a lot done and need to concentrate. He wants me to sit and "take a load off." Then he wonders why dinner is late.

If he ever retires and is home full time ... well, I'm not going to borrow trouble. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
