OMG I just discovered Ginger Ale today. I mean, I didn't think it would be any different than a regular pop/soda, but it tastes sooooo good.
I love ginger ale!! Yummy and helps with tummy troubles
My DH is leaving tomorrow morning to go to a camping/festival thing 4 hours away. He is soooo clueless on camping/packing himself. I brought out all the camping stuff and he picked through it and didn't take anything. I was like, how are you going to eat/cook/etc all weekend if you don't have dishes, pots, pans, or somewhere to wash them after?? He totally doesn't get it. He's probably just going to eat chili out of a can cold.
He hasn't even packed yet, and he has to pack up everything, finish his laundry, pack the car, and all this before he leaves at 7:30 AM... and he's still awake, playing on his phone. And he spent 3 hours playing video games tonight instead of preparing.
He hasn't even gone to the grocery store yet for food! No food planning done whatsoever either!
Ug. I'm having a horrible day.
That post I posted a while back about DH's family members staying with us reared it's head again yesterday. They had said no they weren't coming up here and then all of the sudden "We'lll be there next week", including his brother whom I don't want to come.
I told DH that his brother in no way can stay with us due to the many times I've seen him abuse animals. I don't trust him around my dog and I don't want him to be around my dog when I'm not there. DH wasn't happy about this, but agreed. However, I do understand where DH is coming from, how does he explain to his family that his dad can come (which I'm not as thrilled about, but at least he's quiet and clean), but not his brother? Or does he tell them both that neither can come now? Does he tell the truth or come up with a lie to get them off our back?
I guess I don't get it as my family is not "family oriented". They would never ask me to do anything and I never rely on them for anything either. It's just how it is. I can't imagine what it's like for DH as his family is closer and it's expected that if they asked for help, he has to give it.
Maybe he can recommend and shop around for a local motel that does extended stays. Just explain that with the baby coming you guys will be doing work on the house and getting the nursery ready and want them to be able to relax so having their own space would be better. But maybe invite them for family dinners?
Well, he's coming. After much crying on both my side and DH's side (yes he cried). Family is very important to him. But I made him agree that he will manage his brother under ALL circumstances and there are rules to follow. His brother is to go no where near my dog. If my dog is sleeping on the couch, he is not go to bother him on the couch, etc etc. They pushed it back again too, so it won't be until at least the end of July.
