So the girls have less than 2 weeks left of school. I'm having mixed emotions. Yesterday Marissa came out of school saying how they have no more spelling tests & no more homework. On one hand I'm freakin' estatic that I don't have to fight with her to get her homework done. Yet on the other hand I'm thinking--they stopped giving out homework this early?? Is it me or do I just not remember how it was when I was in elementary school? I think the whole "not having to fight over homework" beats it all. Can I just say.....WOO-HOO!!!
I'm looking forward to the days of staying up late & not having to be "on-time" in the mornings...sorta like when I was in school myself!! It'll be nice to have the girls home...or will it? LOL!! Yesterday was a treat without that homework looming over our heads. The girls were behaved & dare I say?---quiet! Today was sort of the same & it was NICE!
On another note.....Tonight Joe took us out to eat at Fuddrucker's. The girls have been dying to go & Joe, of course, caved. I was driving & we were talking about the day when all of a sudden I see something in the road & he tells me to watch out. It was a bunny. And I was too late. I ran the poor thing over. I seriously think this is the first time that I've ever done that & I was sickened. He, of course, critizes me, and mocks me & terrorizes me the whole ride there. On the way home he starts up again. Just like a little 5 year old boy would.
I had basically forgotton about it for the time being when he sees me blogging. This is our conversation.....
Joe -What are you doing?
Me - Blogging.
J- About what?
Me - Marissa & school...not having homework....
J - Do you blog about when you get mad?
M- Yep I have it labeled under "venting".
J - So you blog about everything on there?
M- Yeah, why not? It's like a journal.
J - Everything???? (said with a devilish smile on his face)
the lightbulb goes on & I realize what he means
M - You're horrible!! Thanks for reminding me...I'll add that in too...you know to confess my sins.
And to think at this time 9 years ago I was getting ready to marry the man......
