Clarification.

WARNING WARNING WARNING.

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.)

Yay for late birthday presents! Why on earth did you have three mortgage payments in one month? Sound awful!

And congratulations on the good parentnig award - inlaws can be so difficult to deal with that every grain of praise is valuable. And your kids won't be meth dealers. Maybe just starving artists... *giggle*

Mr. Fabulous said...

It's the same in my house mostly, except I can't fix a thing so Mrs. Fab has to settle for thinking it's HOT when I phone a repairman.

Hmm..on second thought, it might not be the same thing at all...

Melora said...

Sorry about the birthday neglect, but I'm glad she eventually remembered.

What a nice compliment from your father-in-law! Too bad it followed some not nice behavior, but I guess he has seen the error of his ways and recognized your superior qualities!

Manly competence is definitely sexy in my books, but Ed usually prefers to call in the experts.

Cordially,
Melora

Erin~We pay our mortgage every two weeks, so sometimes (twice a year) we end up paying it three times in a month. Well, maybe the meth dealer thing isn't so bad-at least they'd have money!

Mr.Fab~Not the same thing at ALL.. make sure she's not home alone with them ;)

Melora~It would probably be better at times if we called in the experts.. but we have fun learning!

debambam said...

woohoo for late pressies, they are always just a bonus then cos you've given up hey!! LMAO at getting randy over hubby doing the fix it thing. You think I can explain to babe that i get turned on when he does the dishes WITHOUT me asking??
Sorry for slackness lately, blog explains it all :)

andrea said...

See, I don't get to do this sort of thing as my blog isn't anonymous - ish. Happy Mothers Day.

Tricia said...

Ungrateful. (had to say it, 'cause that post kinda bugged me. I read it before the warning went up. Your grandma's are old. Therefore they may forget or have bad taste. They weren't doing it to be assholes.) I can understand being hurt when your forgotten though, and I'm glad she remembered in the end and you got a nice late surprise.

Happy Mothers Day - won't be long 'till you get funky home made prez from your babe.

CeCe said...

Debambam~Yeah, unexpected house cleaning or fix it jobs are HOT! My man is all about that!

Andrea~Yeah, well it's STILL getting me in trouble!

Tricia~I AM grateful! Ha ha, that's why I wrote that bit in the post! And my grandmas are old, but they're not dotty. And I took it personally this year. I can admit that. I mean, I didn't even get a phone call from Grandma C. BUT IT'S ALL GOOD NOW!

Belinda said...

Of course, you always have those meth-dealing straight-A students who totally throw off the statistics...

Erin said...

Ahh, I see. We thought about doing that, too, but we haven't gotten around to it yet. *sigh*

CeCe said...

Belinda~Something to look forward to, I guess!

Erin~You've been meaning to change your mortgage schedule? Or deal meth?
