my so called life....

I'm just going to tell you right now......that i was only gone for 2 nights.........
just 2.
not 3 or 4......
nope....
just 2.
I had a feeling that the dishwasher would probably still hold all the clean dishes......
I knew that the laundry would not be folded....
I knew that the toilets would not be flushed....
i just knew......
you can call it a women's intuition.....
or just call me supermom.....
i did not berate my husband when he picked me up at the airport on Sunday ...that the boys
still had on the same clothes from Friday.....
nope....
i did not.....
because he only had ONE thing he needed to do.....
Bryan only had one thing that needed to be done.......

to pick up his son from school by 5:30 on Friday.

OK, time for another trip...Girls trip to SoCal - I think your hubs may need more *practice* flying solo with the kids.

What do you say?

typical, no surprise, your lucky they were both healthy and still breathing when you got back. Oh, if the house is still standing and the kids breathing, I always think Im Lucky! hehehehe, that is cute!jamie

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

Yeah, I think your hubby needs more practice. You should go away more often so he gets better at this being alone (with only two kids!), being without you.

Lori said...

so apparently you should leave him a longer list next time so he can at least get one thing checked off it! I agree with the above, he needs more practice....

Martha said...

What a riot...well not for your son....but I love the "Please bring cash within 48 hours"...like "severe" consequences will happen...such as imprisonment or something with the BOLD green lettering...how funny! I better not speak too soon as I think this happens to parents at least once in their life...and someday I may be the culprit since it happened to me when I was younger...well without the note at that time to my parents...maybe I should have came up with a note like this, and I could have pocketed the $10 from my parents just for being late....just kidding:)

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your barn boys post!!!! Beautiful pictures!

You know I could almost feel like my hubby would get the same note. I have class at night so once a week when my mom cannot pick them up I have him do it, well he needs to be there by 6 pm and when it was his turn he would be there exactly at 6 pm. They need more practice. Good luck.

Jeanneoli said...

I would have loved to be there when you saw this!!!

paige said...

i'm with jeanne.....do tell

Jeannine said...

Is the note from a day care? I'm sort of fascinated that a school has a late pick up charge!

When I was in nursery school, there was a girl whose mother always came to get her late. I only knew this because my mother would chat outside with my best friend's mom while we played and after everyone had gone, that girl's mother would come to get her kid. Years later, my mother told me that the girl's mom was an aspiring golfer and would lose track of time while playing. Perhaps if there was a fee for picking her kid up late, that mother would have remembered and gotten there on time. Poor kid.

Anyway, welcome home!

hilarious.... :)

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Ouch! I will be leaving for 3 days this week...Im afraid!

Tracey said...

hysterical...you were shocked, right?!

:) T

Lou Cinda said...

Well, you would think, I mean you would just think, that given the circumstances of a man home alone with children, that they would have cut him a little "slack"!

I'm just sayin'

Wow, your school does'nt mess around. I'm trying hard not to laugh cause I TOTALLY know what your saying, but the visual in my head.....

Pretty Little World said...

I could leave giant size post-it notes all over the house with the "one thing" I ask my fiance to do, and it would still never get done, lol!

Allegra said...

husband brains just don't function the way wife brains do! christan has repeatedly told me, "why are you thinking about ALL of this ALL the time." Well, dear, because if I didn't call you at 5:15 to tell you what time it was, you'd still be at the office. (last night)
Poor men.

Brenna LaPray said...

That is too funny!

PamperingBeki said...

Holy cow!! They charge you when you're late picking up your kids?! I've never heard of such a thing.

CRAZY!

And my husband would've done the exact same.

goddessof4 said...

So funny!!! Before I homeschooled this happened to me!!!! Mt two kids would be waiting in the office!!! Then when one of my sons went to a new school they had early release on every Wed. and I totally forgot!!!!! The school called me an hour later and I had to pay the after care fee!!! LOL!!! My son begged me to enroll him in the after care program because all his friends were their and they had snacks and played games!!!! Sara

Jackie said...

So funny! My husband always forgets when to pick up the kids when I'm not there - now I just call at 2 and ask if he's on his way to the school...he never is (luckily there are no late charges - just and angry call from Sharon, our school secretary).

Laura said...

LOOOOOOOOOOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

he must be related to my husband....

Jen R. said...

That's why we are in charge!

Kacey said...

Oh no!

Sadie Olive said...

Men! Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em! :o)

mandiegirl said...

Oh my. I put a DVD in my hubby's car last night- I knew that he'd leave it at home if I didn't- to return. Guess what was still in the car this morning?!? Oy!

Farmgirl Paints said...

Uh-oh! He's in big trouble. Why are men so bad about stuff like that?? It's really a mystery to me.

RACHELLE said...

ha ha ha , that's about right isn't it! i'm not laughing at you, but with you! It's just good to know that my husband is just a man like every other man and not just an incompetant all alone! xoxo shell

Tara said...

That is why I call my husband so much, just to remind him of EVERYTHING!

Jamie said...

ha, ha!

Julie said...

That would be my husband too. lol.

Was The Time Traveler's Wife good? I've seen the commercials for it. I may have to add it to my to read list. :)

Olive Rue said...

Hi Kasey. Just wanted to say thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. I'm off to look around your blog now. Have a great day!

Eva Gallant said...

Don't you love that they can't seem to figure out things for themselves?

NicNacManiac said...

That is just too freakin funny!! Gotta love em!!

Marci @ All Things Wonderful said...

Too Funny!

Suzanne : : S.HOPtalk said...

Hee hee...my friend takes her 3 children WITH her each summer and stays with her parents out of state. Her hubby visits for a week, but otherwise, is a bachelor back at home for 3+ weeks. Last year when she returned home...after a month...the clean dishes that were in the dishwasher when she left, were STILL there!

mimi charmante said...

I'm not sure, but I would guess that you can hear me laughing out loud from there...
I am leaving sunday for a WEEK - and you can only imagine what I will be returning to...

Leah C said...

Why is it that we women are such great multitaskers and men are not? But wait...he only had one thing he had to do. Tsk, tsk:)
Maybe next time he'll get it right!

LuLu said...

I know this is what I would happen at our house to! It's always funny when it happens to someone else though! :)

Vana said...

I love it:)

Rue said...

I said out loud "They charge you money when you're late to pick up your kid?!" and Rich said "yep."

I had no idea, but how odd that he does... hmmmm...

xoxo,
rue

Alicia said...

Hilarious!! My buddy came home to find her last coffee mug still in the sink with the spoon & her hubby tried to reason that even though 14 days (!!!) had gone by at least there were no other dishes...turns out he ate at his moms or went out with the kids.

paula said...

oh no, too funny.

TAMMY said...

I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND MEN! URGH! HOW CAN THEY RUN FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES? CAN I TELL YOU THAT MY FRIENDS HUSBAND (A SURGEON, OKAY) WENT OUT FOR DINNER AND REALIZED HE FORGOT HIS SHOES WHEN HE GOT OUT OF THE CAR! WE SHALL SURVIVE!
