Back by popular demand….another installment of nothingness from yours truly!
The weekend went by fast as always. I welcomed the end of this weekend though. It started out great, a nice Friday evening with some friends and cards. Then Jason and I cuddled up for some TV for the rest of the night. Saturday morning, I slept in WAY to late! As much as I am thankful for the boys allowing me to sleep in, it was TOO much sleep. I woke up feeling I wasted half the day and I had a nagging headache. And to top that off, I was out of creamer and I’m tellin’ ya right now, milk is not a suitable substitute!
Jason has monthly inventory and usually does it on Sundays but he’s been able to get it done on Saturdays. This means I get to go! 🙂 As I am getting ready, Jason tells me, “dress nice.” What are you saying man, I don’t dress nice normally?!” What he meant was, don’t wear your usually lounge pants! FINE!!! Whatever you say Mr.Boss man. Don’t want to embarrass you!
*Totally kidding Jason if you’re reading this.
While Jason was working on his inventory I took Bailey to get his hair cut. First off, let me just say a hair cut in Buffalo (where we live) is SO different from a hair cut in the cities! It was fun! The salon was upbeat, the hair dressers were anything but ordinary! Plus Bailey got probably the best hair cut he’s ever had!
We finally get home late that night and settle in. The phone rings at about 11pm. As it’s ringing I’m thinking who the heck is calling this late? And why? No one calls that late, unless something happened. And indeed something had happened. A friend, an old team-mate of Jason’s had died in a snow mobile accident earlier that day. That kinda set the tone for our Sunday. Quiet, and somber. I don’t want to get into any details about it, really I just want people to know the dangers of these machines if not used with the up-most respect of what they are capable of.
Okay, no more sad talk…..can we talk manners here for a second? Or maybe respect is a better word. I am a nanny. I do love my job and I love all the kids I have had over the years. The parents have been another story. This next statement is for my present parents…With all due respect, when you come to get your kids, do NOT sit in my drive way for 20 minutes talking on your phone! Not only have I had your kid for 10 hours already but they know you are sitting out there. I want to be off the clock and they want to go home. What is so dang important every day that you have to sit in my drive way on your phone? Can’t it wait? Don’t you want to see your kid? Come on, BALANCE, work and kids, there is a balance you can find. I can give you some tips! Thanks (and please help with the potty training please)
(btw, I only say she is on the phone with work because that is what she says.)
Okay, that’s enough of me babblin’ what about you?
Ohhh one more thing…what’s this juking I keep hearing about? Is this some new dance move the kids are doing? I may have to force myself to watch the news tonight to find out!
