I HAVE WRITTEN SOMETHING JERKY HERE. DO NOT READ IF YOU'RE RELATED TO MY HUSBAND OR ARE GOING TO SPEAK TO ANYONE RELATED TO MY HUSBAND. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED, I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY HARD FEELINGS THAT COULD ARISE FROM YOU READING THIS. THE ABOVE MENTIONED PEOPLE ARE NOT WELCOME AT THIS BLOG. PERIOD.
This post is mostly for me, I'm sure none of you would find this interesting, but because this is my journal, I figured I should write this in here, so I can look back and remember...
I was really bitter this year that I totally got ripped off for my birthday. One grandmother sent me clothes that were a bajillion sizes too big, and the other grandmother didn't send me ANYTHING. This is the first time that they did this. This was the year I could have really used the money.
ANYWAY, two months late, I got a package from my other grandmother with my birthday money in it. AWESOME. It was a little late, and it didn't come in the month when I had THREE mortgage payments, but it did, eventually come. And it paid for the shopping spree I had just gone on when I bought a bunch of things for our new poodle.
The other thing is:
Armondo's dad basically phoned to appoligize to me for being a jerk in the past to me. He told me that I was an awesome mother and an awesome wife and he really enjoyed watching our family interact. That was pretty cool. When he was visiting, he had also said that Armondo and I were probably the only parents these days that are doing things right. (Referring to bed times, feeding schedules etc.) And he basically told me we were better parents than Armondo's older sister and her husband. And not to toot my own horn or anything, but WE TOTALLY ARE better parents. Ok, that was a little rude. But... sometimes the truth hurts. And now, my kids are going to be meth dealers and hers are going to be straight A students. Just because I said that.
Oh, and nothing makes me randier than my husband being all "Handy-man". Usually, I'm the one who does the fix-it things, or instructs how to do the fix-it things, but lately, he's just been so HOT being all handy! (I only know stuff 'cause I work in a hardware store, and have off and on for over 5 years.)
