That Takes Skills

To annoy me so quickly.

Hubs had been gone for over a week. He unexpectedly came home last night when I thought he'd be gone another week or so. YAY!

But, by 8am this morning, I wanted to kill him.

That takes some serious skills on his part.

The snoring, bed-hogging, and cover-hogging.

Not getting up with the boys this morning when he promised he'd let me sleep in.

Sending a message upstairs with Monkey that I should wait to make his breakfast so it's still warm for him.

Asking me why I didn't go to the store yesterday. Yeah, with the huge storm that we had all day long yesterday.

Being annoyed that he has to get up so I can run to the store for milk

Having some rah-rah take-over-the-world meeting this morning that he needs to take his laptop to.

Did I mention leaving my desktop at my brother's house, 600+ miles away?

Oh and being irritated at me for not being psychic and knowing he was out of shaving cream. This from the same guy who took my toothbrush, face soap, and deodorant with him on his trip last week. And who put my hair dryer, flat iron,and brush so far back in storage that it will take a two day mission to be able to dig them out.

Then there's the dirty clothes on my clean floor and dirty dishes on the counter.

I'm glad he's here, really.

I just wish he hadn't brought all his annoying habits with him.

Isn't it amazing that we can love someone and want to kill them all at the same time! Good luck!

My hubby has been away all week too.....

I am ready to deal with the annoyances at this point. I miss him taking the boys to school early in the morning....

You need to hurry up and get back to full-on blogging. With that said, thank God for smartphones!

Oh yeah! I completely understand this. Hubs works so much overtime that I hardly see him until he gets a weekend off. Then I'm ready to kill him.

You know my husband gets mad about shaving cream too? How am I supposed to know?

OMG!!! I'm so glad I'm not the only one. My husband travels a lot for work. And while I'm always ready for him to come home; I'm also always ready for him to leave. When he's gone we manage just fine, no one gets sick or hit by a car, homework gets done, the kids get fed, we all get some sleep. So why is that when he gets back he wants to tell me what I'm doing wrong? How does he think we manage when he's not here? What a goober!

LOL Sorry, but you sound like my kind of girl! Isn't it amazing how you can miss them so much and then be so truly annoyed 5 minutes later! Best of luck!

Hubs actually travels quite a bit for work and it's the same every time. I'll miss him while he's gone and think about how much easier everything would be if he were here...and then he gets here and I just want him to go away again.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who feels like that!
