I'm quite adept at being worthless. Especially if my husband is out of town. If he is gone, and I'm home with the girls, I immediately become worthless.
I'm fairly okay with that.
This weekend I was unable to be as unproductive as I'd like for the simple reason that my children needed new shoes for softball (which I'm so excited about I can't hardly stand it) and Popcorn had the audacity to grow out of her school shoes...
And I had to take Bookworm to her basketball game...
And clearly, my life is just so DIFFICULT.
Anyhoo, my nephew was in town the last two days for a state wrestling tournament. He had asked me to try and meet up with him. He is 17, and has all of the responsibilities of a 17 year old...
Trying to get the details of when/where to meet, or if it was even possible to plan ahead was next to impossible. Of course, it ended up that we couldn't meet because he was busy with matches except the time frame we were at Bookworm's basketball game. I told the girls that our plans for meeting Kris were cancelled.
They took it pretty well considering we had eaten early so Bookworm would not get sick in her game, so they were being quite the little complainers about having to wait to eat anyway.
Bookworm asked if he had a job.
"No, I don't think so."
"Well, he better get one if he wants girls to find him attractive. Girls want guys to have money!"
And being the wonderful example I am, I died laughing...
And then texted Kris the tip that Bookworm had for him.
He LOL'd and said that he did too.
Me: You find guys with money attractive too?
Kris: LOL NO! I seriously need a job.
Me: Good, because I was about to post a facebook prayer intervention with you tagged in the subject line.
And the reality is I'd probably do that, all in the name of being a
If course he DID block his status updates from my view.
