Just when I thought it’s September and everything will slow down. Yea right!! Bailey has football every Saturday morning and Jason will be starting his football season here in a couple weeks. As if softball and football weren’t enough, now Jason has joined a Monday night bowling league with the softball guys. Don’t get me wrong, I like going out and seeing my friends but I’m pooped!! This summer was too much for me, mentally, physically, emotionally. I feel like I have aged by 10 years just over the summer.
Saturday night we went to a friends surprise birthday party. I haven’t seen her in 2 years!! I had a good time, had 2 drinks and left. It’s just not in me anymore. I regretted even having the 2 drinks and have come to the realization that I am DONE!!! I just felt gross. Anyways, that’s not what this post is about really.
So lets get to the point of this post. Jason has this “friend”, I say “friend” because I’m not a big fan of his. Jason graduated with him and they haven’t seen each other in years. Well his parents live in our town and he is now staying with them. He’s always trying to get us to go out and is ALWAYS trying to get Jason to do something. Jason works hard and likes to spend his weekends at home with is family, as do I.
So Thursday night this “friend” says to us, “why don’t you come over and we’ll have a bonfire and maybe go on a boat ride tomorrow night? Or you can just be lazy and stay home.” UMMMM….EXCUSE ME???!!! Who has a job? Not you. Who has a million things to do in one day? Not you!!! I don’t call us lazy. I call us a family who likes to spend time at home enjoying each others company. And every time Jason and I don’t agree on something…anything, he says “STOP FIGHTING!!” That’s not called fighting, it’s called having a conversation!!! So annoying!! And every time I say anything remotely argumentative he makes that hand gesture like I’m talking too much or talking nonsense.
I would be a happy little camper if he’d just go away. I can honestly say I now know why he is no longer married!!! He’s just a rude person. Jason and I do not like when people just stop by announced. Sometimes….fine, but always….not okay!! He’s so bad that he came to our house on Saturday and we were at Walmart. My brother made the mistake of telling him we were at Walmart. He came and found us!!! Can you believe that?? I couldn’t!! I was so irritated by the time we left that store you could probably see the smoke coming from my ears!! Not 10 minutes after we get home, the phone rings. Yup it’s him, we did not answer that phone. Why should I have to hide out in my house?? Or screen my calls. And now we have to duck and hide when we’re out in public?? I used to love the fact that we lived in a small town and knew everybody but I’m seriously rethinking all that. Makes me want to move out in the middle of nowhere land so we can just live our lives peacefully!! Does anyone else have this problem or am I just a selfish, lazy b**ch??
