On Friday morning, Valentine’s Day, my husband woke me up fifteen minutes prior to the alarm going off. And it wasn’t a nice gentle wake-up either. It was a “hey, get up” type of wake-up. I was confused
but opened my eyes anyway. “I had a bad dream about you and I’m still pissed! You didn’t do anything majorly wrong but someone was coming on to you on the phone and you wouldn’t hang up. Why didn’t you just hang up?!”
I was stunned. I was just sleeping, minding my own business (I think) and still managed to get myself in trouble. He was really mad for a
while and called me ‘bad girl’ all morning. This was my Valentine’s Day wake-up for crying out loud! Instead opening my eyes to flower petals scattered all over the bed, candles, a box of chocolates and a giant teddy bear, I awoke to anger. I was scolded for things I do in dreams for crying out loud.
I don’t usually do bad things in my husband’s dreams but when I do I make sure I really piss him off on Valentine’s Day!
Mom of the Year
We woke the kids up early and gave them some Valentine’s gifts/treats before TJ headed to work. The kids were impressed with what they got but they were not happy with me at all. “Who makes their kids dentist appointments on Valentine’s Day Mom?! Who does that?!! You give us
chocolate that we can’t eat until later. What’s the point?! Are you going to take us to the doctor for shots on Christmas?!”
I don’t usually schedule dentist appointments for my kids on special days but when I do I make sure I give them lots of chocolate they can’t eat prior to the appointment!
I probably go to the post office three or four times a year and today was one of those days. Except there was one problem with me going today, it’s a holiday and the post office is closed!
I don’t usually go to the post office, but when I do I make sure it’s a holiday and the place is locked up tight!
After the post office I picked up a few things at Kroger. The parking lot was jam packed. After loading the groceries I got in and started my car. A message flashed across the digital display, “Tire Learning Exercise.” And then the horn began honking at random intervals. I slid down as
far as I could in my seat because people were looking at me. I couldn’t make it stop. I bought the car new seven years ago and it’s never done a “Tire Learning Exercise.” What the hell is that anyway?
My car doesn’t usually do a Tire Learning Exercise but when it does it makes sure it’s in a full Kroger parking lot!
See, my life is a constant joke!
