This Past Month I Did Some Shit

Wifey got back yesterday after 5 days of being by her family’s side to put her cousin to rest. The next day her phone lit-up with a jobby job offer that seemed too good to be true. Five days a week – 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. – the same time the kids are in school so no childcare required. At least not till summer time.

Her paycheck won’t be “extra money” by any stretch. But I still can’t help but think of how I’m going to use the money to get my half-sleeve tattoo finished, or to get the roof replaced, or to dangle in front of my kids’ faces only to quickly snap it away as they reach for it, or to….wait…what honey?!!….yes dear…. Ummm…or to pay bills.

This past month seems to have been about change. The wifey of course experiencing the largest. Me having my daily routine thrown off for a couple weeks – which as any Type-A person knows, is like having your security blanky burned right before your eyes. A change in my waist size from not being able to work out for many days. And, now a new routine with the wife going back to work. On the horizon – hopefully one more large change….

This past month I got a massive dose of stay-at-home mommy life…make that, single stay at home mommy life. We laughed, we all cried, at times I was tied up and beaten with various stuffed animals, occasionally I was proud, yesterday I repeated myself 379 times, on Monday my daughter took a massive poop while the boy tried to wait patiently cause he had to pee, Sunday we bought a cap gun and a Lil Pet Shop birdie, Tuesday I scooped 4 days worth of cat shit, Friday my son said “daddy….you’re a weird man.”

This past month I truly loved spending the time I did with the little bastards and enjoyed experiencing the parts of their days that I miss when I’m at work. But I was glad to get back to my somewhat normal day-to-day life. With enough time, alcohol, and therapy…I’ll forget how challenging it is and look forward to doing it again.

This past month was the first full month of my blog and I gotta say I’m kind of digging it. Who the fuck knows where it’ll go…but it’s definitely providing me with a killer outlet for my ramblings…..

LOL, and to think that I stay home with a 1 1/2 year old EVERY day while being pregnant with my 2nd child. At least there is some1 in the male population who can now somewhat understand.

Ok, this is IT. I've been following you on Tweet-Tweet. Now I'm in major like with your blog. Keep this up Buster and I'll put you on my "blog roll" and 1 of my faithful readers (I only have 3) might start reading you too.

Congrats on the 1on1 time with the kids. GREAT on Wifey getting a job--if she hates it have her call me, I need a job BAD.

OK, I love the above comment "My blog wants to be your blog when it grows up." Gratefulkim, I'm going to have to visit your blog just b/c of that comment! Anyway, congrats on the first month! The blog is excellent and I am so glad I found it! I have surprised myself by keeping mine up for 5 months now! Hope your wife is doing well and congrats to her on the new job! And I seriously need to stop with the exclamation points...that and the word amazing are way overused by me. (I think I used "excellent" on purpose b/c I am trying to avoid "amazing").
