Dog owners! Thank you so much for your advice! Seems most of you are in my camp and agree that owning a dog is too much work. I am validated. I showed Kenny your opinions/advice for some back-up support. His response? “It was your decision to have a third kid. You got your boy, so now Ellie and I get a dog.”
Yes, it was my decision that we needed one more child. And yes, it is my decision that we don’t need a dog. 13 years of marriage and he still hasn’t figured out that it’s all about me and my needs.
Ok. Moving on. While the kids have their summer to-do list, I have a list of my own. Just a few minor areas in my house that need to be straightened up a bit. So a few days ago, Kenny went to find Little Mermaid for the girls and Tinkerbell was in its case… and so he searched high and low to find the Tinkerbell case only to discover Barbie and the Three Musketeers in its case… and he had a minor FIT because “nobody puts movies back in the right case around here!” It was then that I decided to move DVD organization to the top of my list.
And finally, the end result! A drawer full of DVD’s for the kiddos that are not only all in their proper cases, but are also in alphabetical order! With room to spare! And all of this will last about a nano second! But at least it’s done! And for one weekend Kenny can find DVD’s with incredible ease! And I’m clearly excited! Because I’m ending every sentence with an exclamation mark! So I’ll stop that now.
But I am happy about having a check mark next to this little project on my list.
**And let me go on record as saying that while Kole may not actually be the best DVD organizer out there, he sure beats having a puppy. And at the end of the day, I think his daddy would have to agree. :)
