The Five of Us, Spring 2014

Aaargh!

I want a Coke. We have none. I want a Toaster Struedel. We had some. Until 2 hours ago when Aaron fed the last one to Pea. I want chocolate. All we have is chocolate chips. Oh. No, we don't. Aaron ate them all. ALL OF THEM! I wanted wine with dinner. Aaron drank it all. UUUUUURRRRRRGH!!!

"So, Aaron, how are you going to satisfy me now that you've spoiled all my plans?"

"Ummm... I could make you some toast and jam. And, we do have some of the struedel frosting left. That's kinda like a Toaster Struedel, right?"

"GROSS!!! No, it's not the same." Sigh.

"Oh, yeah, you're so deprived, you poor thing."

Hmmm. Yeah, so I just posted this afternoon about my precious little girl who was so malnourished the first time I "saw" her and mere hours later I'm in a funk because I can't satisfy my cravings. Pretty pitiful. So, thanks, Honey, for the attitude adjustment. Can we go to WalMart tomorrow?

Talk To Me

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at xawilsons@hotmail.com. Much obliged, I'm sure.
