Mr. Mom

I feel like Mr. Mom. I am at home today. Did my clothes wash. I need more than one pair of pants. Hey, the old ones started ripping and have not been replaced yet.. Put the kids wash away. Put the dishes on. Started cooking my stuff. I cooked 1 box pasta, 1 box rice, Chicken with Red and Green Peppers and Onion, Ground turkey (we shall call these meatballs), .. then in the middle the kids wanted food. Obviously I asked them before I started if they wanted lunch... no, not hungry dad. So I have like pots and pans running and coooking them two different things.. yeah, spoiled kids.. hate what each other likes..

So I end up with meals for the week which include:

1 - Wheat Pasta with Ground Turkey, frozen Veggies, and Sauce from the Jar
2 - Chicken with Red and Green peppers and onions with whole grain rice and frozen veggies
3 - A bag of spinach salad plus onions, green and red peppers and frozen veggies if needed.. plus whatever other stuff from the fridge I can throw in..

..this all should last me for a week. Josie said do not freeze the pasta or rice if I am going to eat them this week.. so I took them out. Only the chicken and turkey *cough*meatballs*cough* are in the freezer.

I then cleaned up everything. blah.

I shall be working the night shift all week as the kids are out of school and I did not want to pay the babysitters double. It's the 3 to when I am too tired to continue shift for the week plus maybe some weekend... I think I will be out on Tuesday and Wednesday/Thursday my mom is coming down so I can work normal... then at the end of the week I am going to figure out a good way to get fucking money on BCP poker.. because with soft games like the VeryJosie every day I waste is -EV.

I also decided to try out mediation. I have demanded that she remove the papers she filed and if she does that I will try and work this out with less lawyer bomb more mediation... I am not sure it will work but killing each other in court only makes rich lawyer... If she does not remove the papers from court and file something we both agree on with the mediator then I am done trying. Peace.

Dude, went to Sam's Club yesterday with Tootsie and saw a whole big table of denim jeans - sturdy looking, both raw and pre-washed, for about 17 bucks each. Not bad given that Levi's 501's are $64 apiece! Bought two pair for my rapidly slimming ass. I think you can get them at Wal-Mart, if you can stomach the experience.

You'll make some lucky guy a hell of a wife someday!

Okay okay, you actually may have inspired me to bring better food to work. Saturday I roasted a boneless pork loin and made rissoto to go with it. I made enough for four days of leftovers.

Since I was unlucky enough to have to work today, lunch number one was excellent.

Did you ever get a gmail account?

The meals sound like a great improvement over what you had been eating. I imagine you'll need to slide in the occasional Coke to keep you sane.

I currently have a "pants issue" right now because of my weight loss. I was able to find some Lee jeans pretty easily for only about $25 each. Some other discounts got them for me even cheaper. The cost for Levi's is ridiculous. Now I just have to make some time to get some casual pants for work.

Good luck with your legal situation. I hope this can all be worked out and you will start enjoying life a little more.

$17 Wal-Mart jeans? You think that's a FASHION statement? It's a pair of pants that are sturdy and will last for years - fashion be damned.

Geez woman, get a grip! What are we gonna say that would lead him down the wrong path with jeans: "Look for the ones with four legs, make sure they don't go any lower than the tops of your ankles ..."

I'm with the guys on this.

Fashioned be damned.

If you care about fashion, find the cutest wal-mart worker you can and ask her "Which of these jeans that you carry make my ass look better?"

In the end they are all basically made out of the same material and have the same purpose.

pretty sure we all go shopping about once in 5 years...and only sooner if weight loss or weight gain happens fast. Or...you could keep your old stuff like me and fit back into it when you go back to the gym for the first time on 8 years...like I did recently. I blame Lightbulb's heart attack for that...
