Why you gotta be so determined?

Derek decided today that he was going to take the Oriental rug outside and shake it out because it is downright nasty. Today. You know. The day it was 96 degrees. The mosquitos are swarming like the cicadas last year except not so loud but oh so more annoying and painful.

K: Let's do it on Thursday, when the high will be 79.
D: fine, I'll do it myself.

Baby, baby, baby. So off he goes, knowing that my whiny self will follow.

But I brought a broom. I figured I could clean the rug Jane Austin style. Beat the crap out of it. As Derek held it.

That'll teach him to just poke, poke, poke until he gets his way.

I'm Christina--I would have been watching from a big window, with the kids, while they yelled for Daddy, and I would have yelled out to him--Hurry up, already! :)

What I meant to say--I'm WITH Christina on this one.

Sheesh! :)

MB--so you are saying it doesn't get better?

Oops. What I meant to say was that it was more tortuous for him to have me whining in his ear the whole time.
