Not my baby.
I never realized just how much we need and depend on electricity.
But I do now.
Last night at around 5 o'clock...I see Sean wheeling the grill from the outside patio to the carport...like fast....like he was on a mission.
Then I heard the lightening, the thunder...and it was BAD.
So we had our grilled porkchops, red chunk tatoes (shout out to Gabby), and fresh corn surrounded by candles.
It makes you think how much time is spent doing your own thing.
I mean I like to think of my family as CLOSE. we are tight nit. But when those candles are burning, and there is no internet, no spongebob, no playstation, no light to scrapbook, no light to clean up incessantly like i do, it shows you how much time you do spend doing other things.
It was fun for awhile.
Then it got HOT.
And sean wouldn't quit making "back in the olden days" comments.
He had to use the bathroom, so he took a candle with him...and i hear him cussing.
He's like "I spilled wax everywhere."
Then it was "I bet kids were constantly getting in trouble for that back in the olden days. Margaret!! George!! Who spilled the wax?!"
Then it was "Damn, what did people do? I guess they went to sleep. Its no wonder they were up at the crack of dawn. Get up kids! You are burning daylight!...So THATS where the phrase burning daylight came from"...
enough sean. enough.
Bing was clueless..he was RUNNING as fast as his chunky legs could carry him toward whoever had the candle or the flashlight.
So then Sean says..."Let's play a game. Let's use our imaginations."
So then Jude the comedian says "Well let's pretend the lights are on"...What a smart ass..and its all our faults i realize this.
So it was all fun and games and laughing about STUPID stuff until Sean called and realized that we wouldn't get lights until 9 AM...
so then it we started packing a bag to go to his mom's.
I packed Sean's jeans instead of mine.
Jude was packing monster trucks and DVDs instead of jammies and clothes.
Bing was still clueless.
I didn't mind leaving...
Sean's momma has the biggest TV you've ever seen in your life.
Tried to finish Sin City for the 3rd time (you fool, you damn fool...YEESH)
A gazillion dollar flat iron - that i might have to "borrow"
The best collection of perfumes EVER. ( i chose Kenneth Cole today)
Coconut Lime shower gel.
A Mississippi mud pie that i took a few "nibbles" out of.
I laughed at her because she has THREE scales. THREE.
She said I'm hoping one will be nice.
Jude and Bing were little sticky tree frogs last night.
All up on my jock dude.
I'm like I'm ON A COUCH for the love of God...GO!!
So then they were woke up at 4 flipping AM eating ding dongs and watching KimPossible.
They don't have jobs. Why should they have any concept of time.
So sean woke up...then we laughed at Disney cartoons. Because we were
So that was my weekend how was yours?
Oh yeah...and a very DEAR friend of mine is in the hospital contracting as I type...so hopefully little Zoe or little Cooper will be here soon.
Not my baby.
