Years ago, Mama and BSDE were visiting and we were trying to decide what to cook on the grill that night. It had been a LONG day and I really just wanted something simple. Hubs suggested he grill some burgers on the grill. I didn’t want a cheeseburger for some reason ( one of my favorite foods). After hearing all three of them go on and on about grilling cheeseburgers, I looked at them and said
“FINE, we will have damn cheeseburgers”. 20 years later, we all still call them DAMN cheeseburgers. Even sitting in a restaurant, ordering one. Some funny looks from servers over the years, especially when we get an attack of the giggles………… (maybe you had to be there for it to be funny?)
To say that Hubs and I have been stressed is an understatement. Same with Mama and Best Step-Dad Ever……..We’re fussing at each constantly. We don’t normally do that.
As I am helping Mama pack up her Florida house, Best Step-Dad Ever comes and and asks:
BSDE: What are you doing? Why are you doing it that way?
Me: Packing your shoes in this box because it’s the only one left. You do know you own more shoes than I do, right?
BSDE: Why? No one has more shoes than you do.
Me: Because you don’t want to leave them here? You want to take them with you? You do too have more shoes than me. You have more shoes than Hubs has t-shirts.
BSDE: But what will I wear? No I don’t.
Me: The shoes you have on now? Yes you do. You have this many shoes in your GA house also. I know, I’ve seen them in the closet.
BSDE: No I DON”T . You are one bossy girl, you know that right?
Me: Yes, yes I do, but I am your second favorite bossy girl in the whole wide world.
For the first time in a week, I see a slight glimmer of a smile in his eyes. So I drop the shoes, walk over and give him a hug. He laughed when I pulled away and said, This bossy girl loves you and your 1,000 pair of shoes.
Worth every minute of the stress to see him laugh.
Me: Are you really packing all 200 of these damn t-shirts?
Hubs: I got rid of some
Me: You got rid of 6
Flash forward two weeks and guess what? Bestie walked in the door and handed Hubs a late birthday present. Care to guess what it was? Yep, a t-shirt………..
Ok y’all I am out of here. So many funny things the last month, but as I sit here and type, all I can think of is, I HAVE TO PACK.
After you’ve checked out the madness that is my house, follow the links below and buzz around their homes and check out their craziness…………
