I should be sleeping

January 4, 2009 · 4 comments

But I’m so used to staying up late that I can’t do it. It’s not that I’m not tired (I am) or that I don’t have to get up early (I do), it’s just that I don’t wanna (and apparently I am 10).

We are leaving in 3 days for Florida and I am excited. I need this vacation. I have a ton of stuff to do to be sure the house is ready for my mom to come stay with the boys; you know, dreadfully important things like restocking tp and writing instructions for the coffee maker and tv, plus trying to pull some kind of dog whisperer thing on daisy to get her to behave while we are gone.

Which brings me to a very important subject: my mom is a total dogist – she has something against black labs…my brother’s and mine. It’s sad, but my mom is a doggie racist. She of course denies it, pulling out the ever popular “some of my best friends are black labs!” but we know the truth. She claims, once called out on it, that she loves labs of all colors, but we see the way she flinches when daisy jumps on her or when milo licks her. We SEE. She tried to say she’s simply wary of our dogs, given that daisy likes to jump and is a 60+ pound puppy, and that her ONLY issue with milo is that he broke her finger, but we see through her crazy lies. She is a dogist.* {I am so ashamed}

Anyway, so my mother, the dogist, is coming to stay while we are gone. I dare say that she is truly more concerned with my over-loving, rambunctious pup than she is about spending 5 days with my boys. I just hope she recovers by the time we are ready to go somewhere again next year!

3 days seems like a long time, but really, once you take the list, add cleaning, laundry, writing blog posts, eating, sleeping and parenting in, I pretty much have about 14 minutes and 27 seconds to get everything done.

Doesn’t matter though because in 3 days? I’ll be packing my bags to go to FLA for 3 full days, 2 partial (travel) days and 4 nights of adult time. (during which we will likely bask in the glow of uninterrupted sleep).

Speaking of sleep….

*my brother and I are having way too much fun teasing my mom about not liking our dogs. Hehe.

I too am a doggie racist…lol…a black lab killed my cat and my dog was also mauled by one in the past. 🙁

Does she cross the street if she sees a black lab walking towards her?

So. How uncomfortable would it be if I popped out of your suitcase once you got to sunny Florida? I’m looking out my living room window and all I can see is snow and ice. My toes have been cold for days. Being a stowaway destined for Florida sounds pretty good right about now.

Uninterrupted sleep. Seems mythical to me. I bet the only time I am ever again going to have a night of uninterrupted sleep is when I’m dead. 😛

Hope you had a great time in FL. Oh and I am incredibly jealous! It’s stinkin cold here…nee, it’s FREEZING and we’re in the midst of yet another blizzard.
