Ok, I have to say I am not in the greatest mood....First I did ALL of the christmas shopping....I got EVERY present for my 3 kids and gifts for my husband. Then I wrapped all these gifts...THEN I hid all these gifts....Then I got to put all gifts out. As usual, husband was TIRED! He did after all, get up later than I did, did everything I did yesterday (except he didn't make cookies and fudge, he sat there watching tv) and fell asleep watching the xmas movies we were watching (oh last day he went to work was Friday). After I tagged all the presents and shoved them under the tree and filled all the stockings I finally go to bed after midnight (I know not that late compared to others). There he is SNORING....I finally fall asleep at about 1am.
At about 6am I hear some quiet talking (my kids are 8, 13 and 17yrs old)...My husband gets out of bed at 615 am. I decide I am going to stay in bed. WE have NEVER gotten out of bed this early on Xmas years past. My kids are allowed to go through thier stockings-and honestly the older 2 already know what they are getting, they made lists and know they always get exactly what is on the lists....My husband gets out of the shower and starts talking to the cats. Never does this any other day. Oh might I mention my husband knows what he is getting for xmas too ("Lost" dolls, oopps I mean action figures). At 715 after I have fallen back asleep, my son is outside my door saying "MOM" and the rule in my house is your not allowed to wake me up. This isn't their first rodeo!
I lay there...just pissed. I already know what I am getting...How? Because my husband can't be bothered to try and get me something, I have to tell him EXACTLY what to get me (I just told him to get me a gap gift card) because he claims he doesn't know...or my favorite "I dont' have time" yet he has time to buy Lost cards on ebay and find binders to hold them AND look up stuff on the internet about it and other things that interest him. I managed to find the stupid dolls he wanted on ebay along with a Lost shirt. And when do you think he wanted to buy this Gap gift card? When we were ALL out shopping TOGETHER last weekend. here is what I heard "Well when am I supposed to get it?" IIIII got to look it up on the internet to tell him that:
A. You can buy them at Gap.com
B. YES It is free shipping (would hate to spend an extra couple of bucks for shipping!)
Do you think he could turn the coffee pot on? Nope, it was ready to go, just waiting for the timer to go off (7:20) to turn on. Throw the cinnamon buns in the oven? Nope, that would require removing them from the freezer turning on the oven and putting them in it!
Is this how Santa feels? He does all the work and no one does squat for him? I guess he does get all those cookies and letters...I didn't get cookies, except for the ones I made of course! And I did get to WRITE a letter from Santa....
I guess I should be used to this by now. Why do I think this will ever change?
Ok rant is over, I have to go start on Xmas dinner, it won't make itself! And I think I hear grumbling about batteries, I guess I need to find some.
