Weekend Mom Uniform and Short Stories

Mar 15, 2014

Its Saturday. The sun is shining. We got 9 inches of snow last night. Spring is coming I can feel it, or maybe I am getting a fever and that is why I am having hot flashes. I don't know but snow people, the snow just won't stop falling. I will stop talking you to death with my weather soap opera...

On to some short stories. Pierce and I are like one person I tell ya, he definitely takes more after me than Chris. Which can be very scary at times, but more often than not it is hilarious. One of his favorite phrases right now is "uhhh come on man". He says it all.the.time. It can be frustrating when directed at us, but at other people its funny. For example the other day we were at Starbucks because mama needed her fix, and sure enough we are standing behind two women who "had never been here before"!!!!!! What? Do you live under a rock? So they went back and forth about the menu..."so a small is a tall? how many ounces is that? hmmmm...I don't want anything too too strong. what do you recommend?" I mean that is what google is for, or the starbucks app, sort this kind of stuff out in the car. Pierce felt the same way as he blurted out "uhhh come on man". I had to laugh because he said it in his most discreet two year old voice, which is quite similar to his outside voice. The kids got timing what can I say? Thankfully another employee recognized us and mouthed "white mocha?" I nodded yes. VIP status right there, or a sign of addiction but they tired to make me go to rehab I said no..no..no. 
Yesterday Chris had the day off, I never know why he has a day off unless it is a holiday that is already printed on my calendar, but I don't question these things. So we hit up the usual hot spot turf time for a bit, grabbed some lunch, and headed to pick up the husbands car. You see if you read this post you know that I had to make an executive decision on some new rims and tires for his car while he was away. Wellllll he didn't too much approve of my rim selection so we went to get some new ones. When we showed up a nice older gentleman explained that my husbands car is a pain in the ass and requires custom this and custom and that and it will cost us our unborn child (currently not pregnant) so you see the dilemma. This is when Chris' recruiting background comes in handy because he outsold the sales man, and what do you know four new rims and custom fittings for not much more than the originals. While I was standing there waiting for Chris to sign the paperwork and making small talk with this man he decided we were at a point in our short lived relationship that he could just take out his teeth in the middle of the convo. Yep, you read that right, popped those suckers right out. I almost threw up the lunch we just had. WHO DOES THAT? Clearly he is in need of some super poligrip! If only Pierce had said "uhhh come on man". 
These boys could not have been more excited about the amount of snow fall we got last night. They immediately wanted to suit up and get outside. I not so much, so I sent Chris to party it up with the rest of the neighbors out synchronizing their snow plows. I swear it is like a hit to a mans ego to hear someone else start up their snow plow before another. Like what what he is already out there? oh sh** where are my snow pants? That is the difference between men and women. I sat on the couch and said... you think the neighbor kid wants to make ten bucks to shovel the driveway? 

And now after a day of dressing and undressing and dressing and undressing children of their snow apparel I am thrilled to be getting some much deserved pizza and a fingers crossed a little vino, and fingers and toes crossed a movie. Luck should be on my side with st. patricks day right around the corner, just call it luck of the italians!

  2. Which Starbucks is yours? And I'm sooo with you on shoveling the driveway--I see the snow as a way to develop the neighborhood teens' business skills.

  3. Bahahaha! I remember that first trip to Starbucks... When I was like 14. It can be intimidating for a first time though..
    I can't believe it's still freaking snowing. W.T.F.?! Drink up momma & enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. Apparently you just scream: kick back, relax, and take out our teeth. I couldn't agree with you more about the plow situation. I would be banned if I paid a neighbor to shovel. Banned I tell you!

  7. Blake is the same way about our driveway. A snow blower is one of the first things he bought when we moved to AK... in April. I'm glad we were away when the 9" fell. It probably would've pushed me over the edge. I need spring to get here ASAP.

    You look great!
