She Said: Purification Days 7 & 8: “Woman Overboard!!”
First of all, is that a pic of a MAN, or a WOMAN, on that scale?
Secondly, I just LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this. After going over like 2 things I need hubs to pick up at store on way home from work tonight, he says: “And, just so you know, I AM G>E>T>T>I>N>G R>E>A>L P>E>A>N>U>T B>U>T>T>E>R>, too”. So, I rattle off (bark) major incongruencies in what is FOUND in “real” peanut butter, vs. what SHOULD be in Peanut Butter (which, as you would think, would be TWO items: “Peanuts. Salt.”), right?
Thirdly (and I got just SOOO much joy and THRILL out of this one! What a parenting and spousal G L O R I O U S moment. Hubs tried to prove a point and it spit at him in the face):
Hubs (after I proved my point above) rattled off AGAIN, “This is ridiculous. Peanut Butter is a staple product for kids. ALL KIDS. Always has, always will be. And, that stuff was disgusting when I had to stir it yesterday”.
Then he says, “Kids, what did you think of the peanut butter sandwich you had yesterday for lunch?“
Everyone replies (without ANY coaching from me [not to say I wouldn't have gotten my claws in them and paid them JUST TO SAY they loved it, HAD I had notice]…): “We liked it; why?”
G L O R I O U S moment for HER, last night.
Fourthly, no worries about me cleaning out my purses and handbags. Did you not get the memo that I’m doing that this weekend — it’ll only take about 8 hours each day (being serious) — you’re fine watching the kids all weekend while I do that, the Master Closet, and the Master Bedroom, right?
Lastly, YES – you will be leaving the house for good if you complain one more freakin’ time about the grocery bill from eating healthy or DEMAND that I still feed the kids certain things rummaging through garbage dumpsters to find the food you’ve been drooling over.
