My husband and my brother wanted to go bowling last night. Normally, it’s a Saturday night and weekends are for family. But, Erik (Otion Store Manager) and the hubby really wanted to spend some guy time. But, we had a living room full of gifts to be wrapped, cooking for 9 to do, and a thorough house cleaning to perform before my Mother showed up.
Our conversation went like this:
Me: (sigh) “Honey, tomorrow won’t be enough time to cook the food, wrap the presents and clean our house. It’s a mess!”
Me: (grudingly) “Well, you do have a point. And, I do have a book club book to read.”
Me: “Okay, go out. Have fun. Be home by 11 so we can get a good night’s sleep at least?”
