Take mine for instance...when I talk about cameras, photography, macro lenses, the latest gossip, my freaky love of ugly chairs and whiny comments about why can't we take cool vacations like normal people...his eyes glaze oever and although he may be looking at me...he sure ain't listenin' to me.
I know the look..because sometimes when he starts talking about so and so's car, homemade mac and cheese, Paula Dean and smoked turkey's...I sometimes find myself "Uh-Huh-ing" him too, as I'm mentally thinking of pretty close up's of tropical flowers taken with a macro lens that I don't own but I do dream about nightly.
About three days ago I happened to pass by a yard sale and quickly glanced upon the most beautiful chair I had ever seen.
Since I was on my way to karate class with the two boys, running late as usual, and knew I didn't have a dollar in my pocket, I didn't even stop and get my hopes up of being the new owner of that chair.
Two days ago, in an attempt to make conversation while we drove Bear to Orlando, I may have mentioned it to Karl....as we drove down the turnpike and due to Yahoo's not so very accurate directions, got off at the wrong exit, and ended up in mass construstion heading towards Daytona.
I actually thought he wasn't even listening because he was so darn busy blurting out some not so nice things about Yahoo's crappy maps.
It wasn't pretty.
Yesterday he took off to get some milk, juice and other assorted groceries, 30 minutes later he pulled in the driveway and beeped our wimpy family mini van horn..which sounds exactly like "The Road Runner"..no joke.
Anywhos...Kody goes running out thinking he maybe needs some man help getting the groceries in and that's when Kody says "Mom...Daddy really needs your help".
So...I roll my eyes, get off
And I have to give credit where credit is due..
That chair had a $25.00 price tag on it...and he walked away with it for $5.00!!!!!
Don't ya just love a bargain!!
And just when you think they don't listen. :0)
OK...gotta run, the young uns are here and they are wanting 100% of my undivided attention right now.
Have a great day everyone..I'll try to get back on later.
