Snow Day

It's snowing today. Really snowing. Like horizontal snow, thunder and lightening. We even lost power for a few minutes. And since we live in the South, when it snows, you stay indoors because nobody can drive when it snows. The hubs is not happy about this, since he had planned to go into the office today to get ready for a major meeting on Tuesday. So, he's been sulking around the house being grumpy all morning. He keeps complaining that he has soooo much work to do.
The baby took a 3 1/2 hour nap this morning and hubby used that time to get some work done take a nap. Then when our son woke up and while I was trying to cook the lunch that he requested (breakfast potatoes, homemade applesauce, omelettes, and biscuits) he allowed the kids to run rampant because he was trying to 'work'. Literally, the kids are running all over the place, calling my name every few seconds while I'm in the kitchen trying to chop, season, stir and fry multiple dishes and he is sitting on the sofa reading a treatise. It took me forever to finish cooking and I kind of messed up the meal because I had to feed the baby lunch and occupy my four year old while I was cooking. The hubs kept reading. I even took the kids outside to play for a few minutes WHILE I was still cooking because I didn't want them to miss the opportunity to play outside in the snow. The Hubs wouldn't even get the kids dressed so that I could take them outside. He just kept reading.
Finally lunch was finished and it was time for our daughter to take her nap and lo and behold the baby was sleepy again, too. So I take the kids upstairs, get them ready for nap and put them to sleep. All this time the hubby just sat on the sofa reading. I plopped down on the sofa and said, "Finally, a moment's peace." He gave me a sympathetic smile. I was going to watch TV, but I didn't want to disturb his reading, so I started surfing the net. Now here is the you know that within ten minutes I hear The Hubs SNORING!!!!! Can you believe this ish?
Both kids are down and you take a nap, but you couldn't tear yourself from your oh-so-important work for thirty minutes while I was losing my mind?
Must be nice!!!!


  1. Oh, this sounds familiar! Don't they see us rushing around and going crazy? I would SOOOO love to just sit on the couch sometime while someone else did everything, but unfortunately we don't seem to have that luxury!

    I don't know about you, but I get so resentful at dinnertime when I'm tired, but still cooking and everyone else is relaxing.

    I feel your pain!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. Ohhhhh need a break my SITsta!! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog! Now go get some truffles and take a hot bath when the kids are in bed!!!

  3. Holy crap. I had a big long comment and the verification code thingie messed up.

    Well how about I understand & sympathize. Although I would have "accidently" woke him up...Heeeheee!

  4. OMG
    You are a good woman...better than me. I would have called my hubby to task because its just unfair to have you do everything. I hope you got some time 4 urself...

  5. Well, I hope you get days where you can nap too. As long as the slacking is fair it all works out.

    I know I'm a few days late - but I think we got hit with the same storm.

    Hope everything has calmed down.
