In which i didn’t miss her


This is just a short post  because very frankly, I have a lot to do and even as you read this I’m driving across the country and most probably in agony or brain-dead.  Or possibly brain-dead AND in agony.  Nonetheless, I thought this was funny so I’m sharing it with you.


Is it long?  NO!  But it is what it is.  So do you guys remember that when Andie comes home from break that her fish, Hercules and Gilgamesh, live in my office? Don’t remember? Why don’t you remember?  Well, anyways they do.  I kind of like them there because I talk to them sometimes when I’m working on my blog (well, actually I never WORK on my blog…I mean, I write up posts but I really wouldn’t call that working on my blog) or doing paperwork (something else I avoid like the plague. Wow, I almost spelled that plaque … something else I try to avoid.)


So I’ll get to my point.  Herc and Gil have been hanging with me for a month but Andie went back to school on Monday and of course, her fish went with her.  After she finished carrying everything out to the car she came in and kissed us and left and Kevin and I had a conversation:


Kevin:   So, are you sad?

Me:        Yeah, I’m really going to miss those fish.

Kevin:   I meant about Andie leaving

Me:       OH!


and then we cracked up because it’s just another example of how I’m the worst mom ever.  I figured I’d see Andie but I’m really going to miss those fish.  After all, they were quite helpful in writing posts!!

    Ahaha! I bet the fish come back. I had one that lived a decade one time.

    Don’t worry, I think this is quite common! My mom always misses my dog more than me. And she’ll call to ask when she gets to see the dog next. She doesn’t really care that I’ll be there, too. :)
