Le Sigh.

Tonight I was supposed to be out on the town with the Husband type dude. The In-laws promised to take the kids so we could catch a movie. I explained (multiple times) that I wasn't going to drive into the city twice and that we had some things to pick up before the stores closed - so they had to take the kids in the early afternoon.

One O'clock comes and goes. Finally they call, but !surprise! they want a nap first.

I guess the concept of stores closing early on a Sunday during a Holiday Weekend is unknown to them.

We said fuck it, dressed the boys and did our shopping. Then ignored the phone. Or would have ignored it, had it rung.

I know I am not explaining this well, but that's OK. As long as you get the general idea that I am pissed the fuck off, It's been explained well enough.

We rented Zodiac instead. It exceeded expectations.

The end.

Pee Ess: Trisha? Flip? have those that freaking babies baby already, you are killing me!

Trish had a baby girl VIA C-section. And *giggle* today is labor day! *snort* Both mom and baby are fine! Go send congratulations their way!

I would leave a comment, but I have no voice. So, you wouldn't be able to hear it.

(See, that made lots of sense, huh?)

Sorry about the date night. I hate when they give you a yes that means no... it's easier just to hear the no the first time.

Whoohooo on the baby!

I would be pissed off, too. Except that is something that my own mother would do and not something my inlaws would do. That's okay, they irritate me in other ways.
