My problems are not anything significant. I planned on stopping by circuit city after work which should have taken 5 minutes (not much left). The 3 year old has to pee (so he says), so I have to take him in and drag him through the mall to the restroom. 5 feet from the restroom door and he doesn’t have to pee any more. I have to let him ride the ride in the mall (I know there is going to be a disaster if I don’t the way he is acting). He wants to ride the escalator (calls it an elevator though). He wants to run around and play. I wind up slinging him over my shoulder and carrying him through the mall and out, kicking and screaming the whole way. I dump him on the wife and say I’ll be back in a minute. I come out 2 minutes later and shes gone (I find out later she took him home to pee instead of finding a restroom there, and he doesn’t pee at home either). So by the time she gets back, my 5 minute circuit city trip has taken an hour. Fyi he spends the next hour screaming that he has to go to the store to pee (just a ploy to go to the store and play).
So I get home, lock myself in the bedroom and spend the next 30 minutes getting a shredded half page of last weeks office max ad out of the scanner (the reason I didn’t finish posting last week). There has got to be a better way to get paper out of this scanner but I haven’t found it yet.
Its just little insignificant stuff like that but lately I have been plagued with little stuff like that. It doesn’t help that I tend to go overboard to the point of insanity with researching some tech purchases, and recently I have been trying to irresponsibly burn up my tax refund on tech purchases.
I probably bring it on myself, lol.
