Semantics  
 So while I've been battling the virus from hell with the boys, Nolan has been out of town.  I'm not complaining,  I wouldn't have done anything differently, anyway.  However, he said he would be back "early Sunday morning" to get on the road for Denver.  I got up early to make sure everything was set for the housesitter, and finished getting everything packed (all the while achy and feverish) and he is still not home.

It's not early, and in an hour, it will not be morning.

I love my husband.  But time is fluid for him.  He's never on time, and refuses to wear a watch.  Say's "I'm not bound by man's time."

 Ironically, he's at a men's retreat.  I hope he comes back all filled up and it spills out onto me.  I could use a little, you know?

I'm out of everything.  Ibuprofen, tylenol, cough syrup, milk, and swiffer pads.  And fabric softener.  The purple kind.

Yes, swiffer pads are a necessity.  I have a dog, and I'm trying to sell the house.

Okay.  Done griping.  Have a lovely Sunday, all. 

UPDATE:  We didn't go.  Thank GOD.  I feel awful.

You poor thing! Men... at times like this, I honestly feel like stringing them up by their you-know-what's and leaving them like that for a bit. Not for too long though, just long enough for them to think of how bad they messed up. But, then that's just me... the psycho bitch. :)

Hope the boys get well soon!

PS: sorry, but I happen to be one of those oddballs who has never worn a watch - ever.

People who do the fluid time thing drive me bonkers. I'm a 'if I say I'll be there at 7, I'll be there at 7 (or usually 6:45)' kind of girl. Oh, and parties that are supposed to start at 8 and when you get there at 8 no one is there but the hostess? That shit drives me crazy.

I went to church this morning with my dad. I know what you mean about getting fed that way. I hadn't gone in awhile, didn't really FEEL like going this morning, but went and was very glad in the end.

To cheer you up, I am using my new wicked cool Snape icon. I love Snape ALMOST as much as I love Draco.

Hopefully you feel better!

I never wear a watch, but I always carry my phone around, so that's kinda a watch. I usually try to be on time. But you're right. It is annoying.

Carrie, get to feeling better! It's never fun being sick, especially when you still have kids to look after (I was a counselor this past summer).

Also, did you ever mention why you were going to Denver? If you did, I must have missed that post.

*hugs you tight* Thank goodness you didn't go! There's nothing worse than traveling when you're under the weather.

Why is it that it's all right for them to be not bound by man's time, but if we keep them waiting for five minutes...? *pats*

Oh good. A road trip is not for the sick. Hope you feel better! And that Nolan buys you all the lovely medicine-y things you need. :) Will be praying.

1. You didn't go? Man. I've been offline all day! I thought you were road tripping it! I'm so glad you didn't go, though. It's an awful time of year to be driving long distances, especially with you all being ill.

2. I wish I lived closer. I could at least grocery shop for you. :)
