Blah,Blah, Blah. What a Pain in the Butt.

Look at me, I'm so bad. I'm supposed to be concocting some kind of culinary creation for dinner, but I'm not - I'm on the computer. Tee-hee. Screw them. If they want to eat, the least they can do is come home. Everyone keeps calling me and asking, "What's for dinner?" Well . . .I don't see anyone here except the dogs, so I haven't really thought about it. Jake and Heather are at the mall, Nick and Jennifer went to go see one of Jennifer's friends in Liberty,MO, and Roy got called out on a service call. So why the hell should I be bothered about dinner? When, and if, they come home, then, I'll figure out what to do. That seems fair, right? O'course, by then, I'll probably just run and get take out. Ha-ha.

I don't know why they want to annoy me with such stupid shit anyway. I've been busy. Roy, my hubby, has done nothing but complain about our lumpy old bed since . . . um, well, for about the last 6 years, I guess. So I told him, If you don't like the damn bed, why do you spend so much time there? Seems like a completely logical query to me, right? But he doesn't have an answer for anything that sensical. (that's a new word, like it?) Any way, he just keeps whining, so, I said, "For pity sake, just get a new bed ! I'm tired of your bitching." Of course, I know that he'll complain about the new one too - that's just the way he is. Anyway, he found one this weekend. He's supposed to bring it home Monday night and set it up. The only thing is, this one is a King size bed, which is bigger than our Queen size that we have now. So I've been out this weekend shopping for new bed linens. I didn't really find anything that I was excited about, but since I don't have a lot of time to play around, I got a cheap set to hold us over until I find something that I like. I guess we'll give our old bed to Heather, and store her day bed until Nick moves out. (then, it will go back into the family room) I'll probably have to find different linens for Heather too, then eventually, new linens for the day bed. *Sigh* What a pain in the butt!

Well, I just found out that my oldest daughter is on her way over to drop off my grandson, Christian. So Jake will be hanging out with him this evening. Nick and Jennifer should be here soon, with their friend. And Roy just called to say that he's on his way home too. No doubt that Heather will want Alexis to spend the night again. So now, I'll have to feed ten or more people ! Do they really expect me to just "whip something up" for 10+ people on 15 minutes notice? Sheesh. Last night, I went to get KFC, and as I carried it into the house, half the neighborhood just followed me inside. Good thing I got the BIG bucket - by the time it was all said and done, I fed 9 people last night. I'm a total sucker for stray kids and stray dogs. If things keep up like this, I'm going to have to get Bono to organize a concert event to raise money for my "Feed the Neighborhood" cause.

Okay, enough jacking around, I have to get off my butt and do . . . something.

Later,
Susan

I have to get off my butt and do something too...just not sure what that something is yet :)

Oh, sometimes I resent having to feed my family as well...can't they just be happy with a bowl of cereal??
But then other days I love doing the homestyle bake up and serve up thing too. I guess it just depends on our mood, and what moody little people we are eh!!

Have a lovely night and hope you think of something!
love me x

Wow! I get stessed out feeding 4 - although my kids are very cool about my cooking. They once told their dad (a trained chef) that his pizza wasn't cooked properly 'cos it wasn't black round the edges like it should be' Umm perhaps that's too much info? Hope you have a great night!

Kate: Oh, I do like to do the big dinner thing sometimes, but seems like everytime that I feel like doing it, they either aren't hungry because, they've been eating junk all day, or they all have plans that they forgot to tell me about !

Willow: I ended up throwing together a salad, and picking up three $5.00 pizza's from Lil' Ceasar's, with bread sticks, and hot wings. They're easy to please ;) I gave them a stack of paper plates so, it all took about 5 minutes to serve, and 5 minutes to clean up - that made me happy too.
