It’s kinda funny . . or kinda sad, depending on how you look at it. When Vince is home and I’m cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner and never getting to watch what I want to watch on TV, I sometimes look forward to a few days alone. But almost as soon as he leaves, I miss him and miss our routine and heck, I don’t even like to watch TV so I don’t care that I never get the remote. But really. . how many times can you watch that Pawn Shop show and Pickers? And he loves House Hunters and I get so frustrated with young couples on a budget who think they cannot buy a house unless the kitchen has granite countertops and stainless appliances! And then he watches Holmes Inspections and now I’m so scared to buy a house that I might just live in a tent!
Sunday morning Vince moved off with everything he thought he needed and now he’s officially living in Texas. As much as I was looking forward to no cooking, I missed him and all day I was sad that he was gone. I couldn’t find the batteries for the weed eaters. He had cleaned in the garage and I had no idea where they were. He called and told me where he had put them so that was solved. Then we had a little toilet incident and Vince told me how to fix it but when I said “What does a wrench look like exactly?”, he decided he’d better call Jerry and have him come fix my toilet.
Yesterday the dandelions were taunting me. Vince assured me the grass would not need to be cut til the end of the week but now, not only am I in control of the TV remote, I’m also in control of the key to the lawn mower! When we lived in KY, I flipped (and ruined) the lawn mower so Vince has not let me cut the grass since then, even though the yard here is perfectly flat. Even though the grass didn’t need to be cut, the dandelions did so I got the mower out and cut the grass. The edging is done, the grass is cut!
Chad is leaving in a few minutes to go fishing and then he works tonight. Today I get a haircut and unless something comes up that I’m not expecting, I should have the rest of the day to myself to sew or knit or sleep or read!
