And, why is it that the price always spikes just before I need to fill up??
I feel like I'm playing the lottery every time I put gas in my car.
Ok, so that's my beef for the day.
On to Working Mom Wednesday.
Topic of the Week: Honest Confessions About Motherhood.
How ironic this is the topic for today! I'm languishing in an evening of guilt right now.
Sometimes I just want to be all by myself in the quiet.
No kids bickering.
No dog licking.
No cat meowing.
No oven timer beeping.
No one complaining about the mean girl at her lunch table.
No answering homework questions.
No one telling me about how dumb his clients can be.
No one calling to ask for my year-end charitable contribution.
All I want is the sound of the clock on the wall ticking.
Yet, it's been a full day for everyone. And sometimes they just want to share what went on. I'm like that sometimes, too.
But not today.
I have nothing to share. And I'm really not in the mood to share anyone else's stuff, too.
After a "quick" (that's relative, isn't it?) through Walmart after work with the girls... which, by the way, if you believe in the concept of a personal hell, I would say that's it: Shopping in Walmart with two kids--the only thing that would make it worse would be if it's Saturday... but I digress... now I am mentally fried.
So, I just want everyone to leave me alone and let me be a vegetable--a quiet vegetable--for just a little while. And I shouldn't have to wait until 10 PM to get it, either!!
