I love all of my followers and appreciate all of your comments. I try to read you all each day. However, at work, we have dinosaur computers that don't like when I open some of your blogs. Some make my 'puter crash. When I get home at night, I try to get caught up with as many of you as I can. Please understand sometimes that is nearly impossible, since all of you rock!
For my new followers I just don't want anyone to think I am the type of person to post and post and never comment. For my faithfuls, I appreciate your understanding and just know I try!
Last Friday was garbage/recycle day. No one remembered. So first thing Friday morning, I had to take the garbage out becuae the teens had already left for school.
Last night, wen I came home from work, The Boy was outside with his dad and his buddies. I said "Please take the garbage down before you forget>" I get the rolling eyes, they "why did you just ask me to cut of my head" look, and the "OMG you drive me crazy with your never-ending mom nagging" sigh "I won't forget" He proceeds to sit down. I asked him "What are you doing now?" "MOM, I'm not going to forget!", he spews. Hubby tells him, don't forget the can by the shop. "Yes sir" At 9:30 last night, do you think the garbage has been taken down? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I came in the house stupidly expecting something different from my " 'I'm 18 I'm an adult' daughter" It is her job to take out the recycling... Heavy sigh "I will" again... as of 9:30, the recycling is still not down.. I have not said another word to either one. At 10:30 The Boy sat down to play a video game. Still.. I said nothing and went to bed
So this morning, at 6am, on a day they don't have school, it's 30 something degrees outside and here I am taking
great pleasure in waking them up so they can do what I asked them to do last night. (You didn't REALLY think I was going to do it 2 weeks in a row did you?) BWAH HA HA HA HA Give me attitude and "I won't forget" and "I will" again. Let me remind you this is the same boy who can't remember things within a 30 minute time frame. This is the same girl who I wrote so eloquently about.
Do you think I was just making an innocent weather observation when I was telling you both just how cold it would be this morning? You did? You should know me better than that by now... but since you can't follow directions, or take a hint....
maybe next time you'll do it WHEN I ask won't you?
**When I wrote this last night.. I just KNEW they wouldn't do it. The Boy surprised me though and about midnight, he took out the garbage(dammit ruined most of my fun) ... the girl... did not.. so I still got to follow through with 1/2 of my wicked, evil, nasty plan... she didn't even bitch about it.. amazing
