This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
Can I just say to all you people out there that the stuff I write about doesn’t necessarily ever happen on the day it’s posted. Things get posted at 12:00 AM EST and by the time you read them the best case scenario is that they happened the day before. I’m saying that because sometimes in the comments section people ask me about the “timing” of the post.
That’s because I tend to write in batches and I go with the flow of my moods. When I’m in a good mood and stuff happens, I write a bunch of posts but if I’m in a shit mood then I probably won’t write anything.
Right now, I’m in a pretty good mood although Andie keeps being mean to me; normally I wouldn’t say that but since she hates this blog and never reads it she’ll probably never know. Speaking of Andie, I planned a small trip with her yesterday. I feel like I’ve neglected my other two kids with all this Keely stuff, not that I really had a choice.
However, Andie has a couple of interviews in New York and Boston so I decided we would make a trip of it. We’re heading up Tuesday to New York and she has an interview on Wednesday. We are going to see ONCE on Wednesday night and then on Thursday we’re taking the train up to Boston.
Friday is another interview and then we’re coming home. I figured it would be a fun bonding opportunity and we could have a little mother-daughter time. Of course, that’s before she informed me “you never know what you’re talking about” which, of course, is the stress talking but still, it’s kind of mean.
However that’s what you get with that kid. I was telling somebody about it and the woman said “remember the Mickey Mouse ice cream cone?” which is hilarious as it’s sort of the yardstick by which all tantrums in the world are judged.
You know the story right? It was right after Daniel was born and Andie was 2 ½ years old and she and Keely were with Kevin up at the pool. They both got treats and Andie got a Mickey Mouse Popsicle and Kevin asked if he could have a bite. Andie said “yes” and Kevin bit the ear off.
Andie screamed and screamed and screamed and you would have thought that he had bit her ear off, not Mickey’s ear off, but no the kid has a serious temper. She’s 22 now and I really can’t say that she’s changed much. If you piss her off you now get a huge rant instead of crying but still, it’s quite a reaction.
So yeah, she’s stressed and basically she takes it out on me. I ignore it for the most part and occasionally I hang up on her but it does take its toll. Having girls is like walking on eggshells at times. Hopefully it’ll all be worth it in the long run but sometimes I wonder what compelled me to have kids.
I’m pretty sure that we were quite happy just as a couple. Who remembers now? It was so long ago.
Well, this wasn’t the post I originally set out to write but you know what? This is obviously what’s on my mind. After all, I’m now an empty nester and I’m trying to figure it all out. Well, I will be eventually at least. Hope you guys are well.
