You all know the drill. It’s Friday, time to loose your tongue and shame the devil. Simply click the purple haired woman up there waving at ya and then write your own post to link up with Dazee.
I am in desperate need of a date night with hubby. No kids, house to ourselves. I wouldn’t even mind if we had some adult company over for a little bit. Sit by the firepit and just have a good time. Maybe a few adult beverages. I am sure you are going to say but Angel didn’t ya’ll just get out by the firepit last weekend with some family. I would answer you yes, yes we did. But our children were home. One would think since our children were older they would be less of a style cramper. Yeah you would think that. I mean shoot they can entertain themselves. Old enough to use a stove, open a fridge, take a shower alone. All the stuff that we look forward to. Yet amazingly when their father and I get some ‘alone’ time or even time with other adults they suddenly cannot live without being at our side.
The same kids who 10 minutes before we headed to the back door were no where in sight in the house. Occupied in their rooms or on computers, not to be bothered by us with simple tasks. You know like ‘turn that down’ ,’put your dishes in the sink and not on the floor’, ‘for crying out loud if you are NOT in the room why do you need to leave the light on?’. Those conversations are filtered right through their heads with the magic of selective hearing.
Cries of ‘dinners ready’ are met with comments of “I am not hungry”.
But let us be ready to head outside, or to our bedroom, or even the bathroom to take a hot bubble bath together. Suddenly we exist again. They will fight with one another, to get one of us to come break it up. They will come running through the house as if someone else is about to bleed to death, to ask where the toaster is. The same place it has ALWAYS been, only 2 choices, on the shelf where whomever used it last did not put it away, OR put away in the tall BLACK CABINET with the other small appliances. Apparently, this is not the case, it is no where to be found. The TV isn’t working, the phone is ringing, So and so won’t let this one finish his level before taking over the game. The same game they didn’t want to play 2 minutes ago, when we were still sitting inside, not acting like we were going to have some adult time together.
Duct tape, and rope that is what I need.
Or the invisibility cloak from Harry Potter. Shoot yeah!!! That would be awesome.
So tonight we are going to try once again to have some adult time. With other adults. By the fire pit. Some will bring their own kids, the others probably won’t. Hopefully, they will all stay inside, not to look for us on the lawn. Because I would have to then send them to their rooms. Till the weekend was over. Just sayin’
Mom, wife, sister, daughter. I am covering them all. Lover of words and the power they have on the minds of those who read them. This is my place to spin my tales if you will. To bring you my reader right to my front porch swing with me. To share a laugh, a cry or to just sit quietly and be grateful for the beauty that is my hillside in Kentucky. Look around, don't be afraid. Check out the fridge for some home cooked leftovers, the bookshelf for some amazing books, and the photo albums for a glimpse at my life, my loves and my other passion, photography.
