“We need to get the kids snowsuits!”, said Kevin. This statement, in itself ,wouldn’t have been so bad had it not come at 6:30 in the morning, when I had still been sleeping. In NY, we got our first snow storm already this week and when Kevin woke up that morning this was his first thought. I, however, was still sleeping peacefully while I could.
But not Kevin, he got up early to shower and then clean up his car and outside our home, too from the snow to go to work. Ok, I should be feeling bad that he was already up, but in all fairness, my day is usually long enough and was trying to catch up on my sleep before my two beasts got up for the day, because once that happens my day is usually not quiet again until bedtime.This says it all about sleep and my day..
So here was my reaction, “Are you kidding me, it is 6:30 in the morning and I was sound asleep and you woke me to tell me this amazing piece of news!”
Well of course then I got told this lovely nugget in return, “You are so not a morning person!”
“Seriously, Kevin I am tired and could care less about snow suits,” I qualified my bad mood now.
“Well, when they go out in the snow to play they will need something to keep them warm and dry,” Kevin responded.
“Kevin, who is taking them out to play at 6:30 in the snow?”, I now spoke louder.
“We know it won’t be you, because you hate the snow and cold weather, too,” he told me as if this was news to me.
“You are damn right, because if I had my way I would live somewhere that I never saw a drop of snow again and that it didn’t drop below 50 degrees again,” I said quite indignantly.
“Oh you are just no fun and don’t you want to experience the snow through your kids for the first time?”, he asked me.
“I tell you what. You take the day off and show them fun in the snow, because I am rolling back over now and pulling the cover back over my head for another half hour!”, I now said grumpily.
Kevin with this just laughed and went into the bathroom then. Instead of going back to bed, because I was now awake I went into the living room and went on the computer to start my morning. I wasn’t even on the computer for 5 minutes when this e-mail came through:Here is the now infamous e-mail:
He was apparently on his iPad while he was using the toilet (got to love men and their bathroom habits) and started searching out snow suits. I kid you not, I saw the color red when this e-mail popped up. Seriously, now it was just principle. I am tired and awake, because he couldn’t just be quiet and ignore the OCD in his head. Now, he is e-mailing me on this too.
To be honest, I truly don’t like the cold weather and snow, but I do know they will need these outfits if the weather, this weather is any indication, but I guess at this stage it is just the point that I had to be awoken to this news and then annoyed for the remainder of my morning about it.
In the end, he annoyed my poor mother-in-law with this earth shattering news, who is still without power. God bless her, she was at Target anyways and called me to say that they had snow suits there in my girls sizes, she would pick them up and drop them off to me later that day.
All day I have been repeating, “I love my husband, I love my Husband” over and over again, because if I don’t I may end up murdering him from the over-exhaustion. Yes, though I truly do love him, but sometimes he reminds me that I love his mother more!!
You know what I have heard all the horror stories about in-laws, but will be honest and say right here my mother-in-law is a saint and an angel on earth. No joking, she was the one to have put up with her son for so long and never complains about helping out when he comes up with another one of his brilliant ideas.
So for all it is worth, I will vent about a lot on my blog, but the one thing I pretty much guarantee you won’t hear me complain about is Kevin’s mother, because she truly is a gift from god even when her son is driving me mad (which yes he does quite often and well). Thanks mom for being just you and keeping me sane.
On a side note, am I the only one who hates the cold and snow? Seriously I was not made for this type of weather. Hit me up and let me know I am not alone on this one.
