And it just kept going from there.
And today he has a TON on his hunney-do list. Now, before you get too sappy about, "Oh, the poor FF. He didn't sleep all night long. Give him a break. Oh, the poor, poor man." Realize that this is indeed something that could have been done, oh I don't know, in JULY when he was playing firefighter at the race track with my dad, leaving me to unpack our house, with 4 children in the mix. So yeah, pity won't be coming from me!!!
Tomorrow, my oldest is turning 13. I will have a teenager in the house from now until January of 2028. NOW the pity party may commence. And to celebrate this joyous milestone, we are inviting a few other newly and nearly teen-aged boys over for a sleep over - tomorrow.
Now, FF calls our house, oh so affectionately, The Ice Shanty. He says it is no larger than those lovely little fishing shanties that inevitably get swept away on Lake Winnebago every spring. BUT, there are 5 bedrooms (mind you one serves as a dining room) and it is a bath and a half. So, it is not really THAT tiny. (Although, I could use a bigger bedroom...)
However, there is some underutilized space in our house that was supposed to be organized, oh I don't know, in AUGUST, but instead...nevermind. I digress.
|Not ours, but very similar - |
sans the paddles or puck. :)
Oh yeah, and he has a relative that was breathing down my neck about where my FF's location...he wants a toilet installed, like six months ago. He has to do that today, too. Poor little, Fireman.
The weekend is almost upon us. I can hardly wait! In fact, I woke up this morning thinking it WAS Friday. I think I am just trying to skip that talk I have to give our whole staff after school today. For someone who talks for a living, I HATE talking in front of adults. Anyway, check up on your muppets and let them know you love them - even when they are driving to the drink of insanity. Kiss your FFs and be a supportive force as they work to complete their hunney-do lists. Friday is indeed on its way! Happy Thursday!
