So What I Took The Day Off!

Today was my day off. 

I didn't clean...well just the dishes. 

 What is it with guys and dishes?  Do they think they clean themselves and jump back up into the cabinet?

Do the think their hands will shrink or fall off if they are exposed to warm water?

Let's not even go there with the clothes!

Okay I feel better now...

And then Mr. Derrick brings over some greens and Rick tells me to cook them for dinner...Not asks me mind you TELLS ME....

Whatever....

I spent the morning reading and taking pictures on the deck.

I spent the afternoon in the new room which I turned into my own sound studio.  The acostics are great now!  I brought in my small tv and made a shelf for it using two bricks and a couple of boards.

Brought out the karaoke machine and microphone which wasn't an easy thing to do with the heavy equipment and going through the scaffle I should have took a picture of it but...I didn't and I am not doing this again!

 I sang my heart out...a few of my guts too.

 

Neighbors got a free concert.  I hope they appreciated it.

Kinda like Woodstock without the drugs.

Then Rick  came home and asked me when I was going to wash dishes.

And you know the rest of the story.

Except here is the best part!!!!!

Instead I came in and watched SURVIVOR!!!

 

So what do I say about that? GOI   get over it!

I am going to save this.  I might be back to put in some graphics but I don't want to lose the entry.

I missed the concert too...........  Dang It.
I'll bet it was really cool.
No disrespect to your husband.
But there is nothing wrong with a man doing dishes, doing laundry, cooking, etc.
I do it all the time.
Im old fashioned it someways.
But when it comes to taking care of the house and the kids............
To me, thats what both parents do....
