I Need a Raise

I so need a raise. Today was just one of those days. Our builders do a 30 day and 11 months walk through where they come in and fix things we might have not noticed in our final inspection. Today they came in and fixed a few things starting at 8:30. In addition to that, they brought in a few people to put in a radon mitigation system. They worked on that thing for 3 hours. Drilling holes in the basement up through the garage. It was chaos! They broke our baby gate, kept going to the restroom and staying in there for 10 minutes, running up and down the stairs, slamming doors. Steve came home for lunch and noticed I had out a 2-liter of Big Red. Big Red isn't an everyday thing around here. You go 50 miles out of Louisville and people think you are talking about the gum, you know that stuff can't be good for you. I told him I was saving it, you know for a day when I had random guys in the house, stinking up the bathroom, breaking stuff and wearing Borat t-shirts. Yes, I was saving it.
In addition to this madness Cooper didn't nap again. I had no shame on putting on Word World and telling him that he cannot talk until it goes off. In the meantime I "rest my eyes" on the couch. I came to a horrible realization today. I may not get another nap for 17 years. Yes... I need a raise!!!

I cracked up at the fact they were "wearing Borat shirts" ha ha ha!! There's noooo shame in resting while your kids watches some t.v.!! At least not in my world ;)

I sleep while Sam plays on the computer or watches TV or plays Wii. I don't think it's a big deal as long as you can trust them!! Sleep away girl!!

WOW, you did have a bad day! I'm sorry, but I did laugh about the Big Red 2 liter... :)
I agree...stay at home moms are overworked & underpaid!
