I'm trying to keep my business, my triplets, and my waistline under control. I excel at one of those, fail at another one of those, and one is a work in progress. Which is which is day dependant.

Life Lesons #2

Should you find yourself single parenting for the week, while DH fritters and floats away his time in another state (read: he's at a conference, and we all know what that means. Namely, he'll come home with loads of receipts for dinners out plus oh yeah honey, here's a free pen I got for you), that would NOT be a good time to :

  • Tell the kids it's pizza for dinner every night
  • Followed by ice cream
  • Quit one's job entirely
  • Forget to lock the front door
  • Get yet more parking tickets
  • Call your BF in the US for a very, very, very looooong chat at premium rates
  • Decide to cut your hair (he's seen the go faster stripe and approves, but best I don't push my luck)
  • Decide to clear out all the crap on his side of the bedroom, in a no-holds-barred approach
  • Forget (not bother) to pay the cleaner
  • Forget (not bother) to pay said parking tickets
  • Leave the dishes to pile up in the sink
  • Not touch a single load of laundry
  • Stay up until all hours watching crap TV just because you can (and he's not here to look hang dog when you flick past episode number 1,346,788 of Star Trek because "I've not SEEN this one!")
...now I'm not saying I WILL do any of these. Nor am I saying I WON'T do any of these. I'm just saying he's been gone for about 6 hours and we've already had pizza for dinner.

It's going to be an interesting week.

Although not for an entire week, I am parenting by myself, tonight.

We had pizza for dinner followed by ice cream. I've contemplated quitting my job - infact I'm contemplating it more, RIGHT now. The front door isn't locked. I haven't done any laundry today, nor have I washed any dishes. I would call my BF, but with the time difference - it's already 1 AM. I'm getting ready to log off so I can go watch some crap TV.

Although, I might fish through my health and beauty supplies to see if I can round up some red hair coloring. A stripe might be nice.

Have a fun week & good luck with clearing out the bedroom!

LOL Jen - see? It's all therapeutic, isn't it? I figure I've earned the right to do all these things. :) (Not to mention tonight's earned activity is a copy of the recent People magazine, a pint of cookies and cream ice cream which I didn't tell the kids about, and my pajamas.)

...and you need to change your pic to include your gorgeous boy. :) (yes, in all your free time...)
