This post could get lengthy, but I'm going to restrain myself. Some Moms from the neighborhood spontaneously decided to get together at a local place to let the kids play and enjoy each other's company this morning. I was excited about going until I looked out the window and realized Dadda monkey took my car, which has the car seats in it. Why he did that, I'm not completely sure. He's been taking his car regularly so it's a bit of a mystery. I tried to call him, but his coworkers said he wasn't there at the moment. This is the second Mommy get together I've missed in a month for whatever reason. I hope there's another one soon so I don't look as flaky as I feel right now.
Just earlier this week, I asked him to go to the store to pick something up for me. We had talked about going out later to do some shopping, but we needed this one item right away. I didn't want to pack the kids up for such a short errand so I asked him to go by himself. I guess I should have known better, but he was taking forever to get back and then I learned why. He decided that he didn't want to have to go out later and so he picked up the rest of the items on our shopping list (at least the ones he could remember). On one hand I can consider it thoughtful that he tried to pick up the other stuff we needed, but on the other hand he threw off all my plans. For example, we were going to get ground beef at Costco (and while there get some other items) so that we could freeze what we didn't need right away. It seems more economical to me to do it that way, but he went ahead and picked some up at the local grocery store. Now we still need to go to Costco to pick other things up so I argue he didn't save us any time. According to his male logic, he did save us time for that day. I don't think I'll ever understand his reasoning on these matters aside from the normal 'anything to keep me from shopping'. I guess it's fair since I have a 'anything to keep me from watching you play video games' mentality.
