Why is it when you think your kids are old enough to fend for themselves they seem to need more?
At 14 & 25 I’m thinking less should be the new more… My life long motto has always been: the more you ask—the less you get.
I know I’ve probably said it a dozen times or more I seriously can’t wait for them both to go back to school and life can go back to semi normal… well, kind of… My hubs has just announced he might be going to New Zealand to work—as our construction company is looking at some jobs over there… It won’t really change much especially when he s normally working away from home in Australia. I guess there will be both pros and cons if this happens…
Con—We’ll hardly see him, as he will stay for a month at a time (but we have been through that before).
Pro—He won’t be home to be a TV remote control hog (this is something he is really bad at).
Con—He won’t be home to do the yard work (I hate mowing).
Pro—The yard work will get done in half the time (hubs has a tendency to get side-tracked halfway through a job and start something new).
Con—I’ll get stuck running all the errands (let’s face it I should be pretty used to this one by now).
Pro—The grocery bill will drop dramatically (And I’ll get to cook things that don’t involve meat and mashed potatoes).
On that note I will away as I have a ton of work to get through before the family get home from work etc... I'll chat again tomorrow and hopefully I'll have something a little more interesting to talk about than my family life.
