My Darlings. Sigh....

Well, one night, as it turns out, is one too many when it comes to freezing their asses off on the Mississippi River.... all the menfolk arrived home a day earlier than expected. I had a lovely evening lined up for Saturday: going to see W. at the Sundance Fancy-Pants Cinema with an old friend who I haven't seen in forever and then cocktails and dinner (if we were lucky enough to get a table) at my favorite Italian restaurant. The movie started at 4:20. I got a call from DH (dear husband) around 3 telling me the boat was out of the water and that he and the boys would be arriving home around 6:30- would I arrange to have Pizza Hut waiting for them when they arrived? All innocent and pleased with himself for coming home early. !?!?! No, no, no, I whimpered in my head.... This cannot be happening- Pizza Hut instead of Lombo's? So, I called him back and said that I hoped he would understand if I passed on the pizza fest at home with him and three starving children fresh off a three-hour drive.... and then texted him the number of the nearest Pizza Hut. Phew!

I ended up having the best night out with my friend, Sue, whom I hadn't seen in ages, much less gotten to spend some QT with. She liked W. more than I did, but we both rabidly hate Bush, so she was the perfect person to go see the movie with. We are both liberals married to Republicans, so we share a like burden in life. ;-) It is tough to not be able to talk politics in your own home!

I had great plans to go out and take some photos on Sunday to post, but well, the chaos was back and it never materialized. I was, in fact, a very mean mommy today. Fed up to HERE with my argumentative eldest son! I swear he is being sent to boarding school-- our entire family awaits the day!
