It’s hot as hell. I’m cranky. And I’m going to have a good old bitch-fest now. You’ve been warned. If you don’t want to read it, click away now.

The Bug’s birthday party is tomorrow. I have so much to do to get ready for it. And what is TCBIM doing to help with the whole getting ready thing? Playing in a three day golf tournament. Started this morning. Nice, huh? I am furious. He only told me about the tournament on Tuesday. TUESDAY.

So, today and tomorrow, I will be:

  • Getting the doohickeys that go into the weed whacker because TCBIM never seems to have time to go to Home Depot (I know, what kind of man doesn’t have time for that?) and pick them up.
  • Whack said weeds.
  • Mow front and back yard.
  • Put away the eighty-gajillion plastic toys that are in the back yard
  • Clean out pool.
  • Get propane for grill.
  • Buy food for party.
  • Wash kitchen and dining room floors.
  • Clean bathroom.
  • Clean living room.
  • Make potato salad.
  • Buy beer/wine for party.
  • Do all this while wrangling a 2-3/4 year-old and a one year-old.

It’s hot. Did I mention that? It’s, like, 95 degrees hot. And humid. And I’m a delicate, fragile flower who does not do well in this hothouse environment.

I need to go away for a weekend. Just leave and let TCBIM deal with the kids and the house. I know if I do that, I’ll come home to a pig sty, though. It’s almost not worth it to leave.

    I luuuuv you…Okay, I know that doesn’t help get any of your errands done, but it used to bring a smile to my friends back home, so I’m hoping it’ll work with you too.And yes, I know I’m annoyingly perky. It’s part of my charm.(Deleted earlier comment due to grammatical error.)

    A swift hard kick to the balls should set him straight.

    See, things that are why I’m not married. I’d have killed him and buried him the backyard.If I was closer I’d come down and help…If its any consolation it hit 106F here in lovely Canada – the new tropical destination – today

    If that were me I would ring all the guests and tell them I’d decided to hold the party in a nearby park, thus avoiding any housework at all.

    Skip the floor thing. Seriously. Unless you have to mop up TCBYM’s remains.
