Yesterday

Monday was a rough day for both of us. I was lacking sleep which made my attitude worse. Ryan had a bad afternoon at the clinic. We were both pissy. But Tuesday was better. I had 1 1/2 hours at home alone to get a few things accomplished. My spare bedroom is clean, the nursery is clean and stacked with boxes of clothes from Scott. Ryan came home tired and unmotivated but I was okay with that since Tuesday is his one night to veg in front of the TV. Mom showed up around 7pm and we visited while Scott entertained everyone.
Ryan's 8pm show wasn't on so I mentioned that it would be a good time for him to help me clean. yeah, didn't happen! I asked him to bathe Scott but I ended up taking the kiddo upstairs and starting the bath. WHen Ryan came up, he stood in the bathroom for a minute (long enough for me to nag him about cleaning it before company arrives) and then headed to Scott's room to build him a log house. Not sure why he did that rather than bathe the kid. So, instead, here I am, fat momma, bending over bathing my kid and being ticked that my husband was "playing" rather than bathing his kid. I put Scott to bed, we prayed with him and then Ryan headed to bed as I went back downstairs. I spent a half hour cleaning before I sat on the couch to read for a while. It was nice, quiet and I was all by myself. Even though I was steaming mad that I didn't have help, I understood that hubby has been working hard and needed some rest. It felt so good to have my living room picked up, dishes put away and the dining room picked up.
The rest of the week will be busy. I really think there's something going on tonight but can't remember it. Tomorrow night is anniversary and we start dog sitting for the weekend. Friday night we have graduation parties to go to. Saturday morning we will honor out fallen soldiers by placing memorial flags and pray for those serving. Saturday afternoon we pick up K at the airport and hang out with her for the rest of the weekend. Of course, we'll drag her to a few more graduation parties, etc. I'm excited for a long weekend with a clean house :)
