Even though I’m not having much fun now, I know that once I’ve made it to the other side this crap will go away. At least most of it – please Lord?!
Today is our 23rd wedding anniversary and my man gave me what he gave me last year (a card) – minus the card. Sigh. He should be living in fear (there are 18 reasons now), but he is too clueless to be afraid, and that really pisses me off! (19th reason).
Perhaps he’s not afraid, because he leaves Weds. to spend a week up at our new place working on his shop (a.k.a. Man Cave). He will have a whole week without his menopausal woman and I bet he is looking forward to it, the brat! (20th reason). He forgets that I will also have a week without supervision. A week that I can get rid of crap he will never use, but won’t toss out. A week to weed out ridiculous clothing. Oh yes, and a week to go shopping for my anniversary present. 😉
