I sit in front of the school, waiting for LittleBrother(10) to get out (in an hour!), under the burning hot sun. Yay. I don't run the car and the air conditioner because I'm trying to not waste gas. Instead, I'll sit here and get hot and delirious. I like hallucinating. Fun fun. The dude parked behind me got out of his corvette and is shining its wheels while he waits in line. Part of me wants to get out and shine my wheels too now. Except my wheels aren't shiny. I wish they were though.
I had a nice exwife rant ready to go but I erased it. Maybe I'll save up all of the things that she does that pisses me off and just write about them once a month or so. (but I'll use this post to purge myself) It aggravates me that Sweety wants me to help the boys with their school work and whatnot but he won't say anything to the COAEW in regards to it. Such as homework being done incorrectly when they are at her house. You have no idea how this crawls all over me. He says if he says anything to her that she will be totally irrational and it won't solve the problem of the homework being done wrong. I did warn Sweety last night that I will probably go apeshit on her some time this school year so he needs to start mentally preparing for it. Maybe I could blackmail some shiny wheels out of him in exchange for my silence. I don't think I will be able to bite my tongue though.
BigBrother(12) has an orthodontist appointment today. His braces should be off in the Spring and he is so ready for that. Oh, another thing - the COAEW doesn't make sure he brushes and flosses his teeth at her house. I realize that a 12 fucking year old should have the wherewithall to floss his own damn teeth without being instructed. But dammit, if you know your kid isn't doing it without a gentle reminder - remind him! It's always nice to get him after he's been there for 4 days and a forest is sprouting along his braces. I guess since she's not paying for braces or insurance she doesn't feel the need to bother with these things. I think we should start shocking him when his teeth aren't properly cleaned. With a cattle prod.
Guess what? We have no Little League baseball game this weekend! Yay! I go to the games and am all supportive and stuff but sitting in the sun for 2 or so hours while kids whack around a ball is really the last place on the planet that I like being.
My car has a sun roof but I rarely use it. I'm afraid of flipping over in an accident and having my head scrubbed off. Or a tree limb coming in through it and smashing my head. I'd hate to die in a crash because something got to me through the sun roof. I will crack it open if I have fast food so the car doesn't smell like a french fry. There is a nice air freshener under the seat that keeps everything in the car smelling like a urinal cake. I like it.
Do you ever leave candles burning when you leave the house? I do and it bothers Sweety. This is something that I've always done. I'll stick the candle some place where there is nothing near to flutter into the flame and then leave it. I've never heard of a candle just spontaneously combusting and burning a house down. I think it needs some food for the fire.
