This house has been evenly divided between the males and females for a long while. Before that the males ruled but they weren't very old when things evened out. Now with both the boys moved out and settled in at college, I am pleased to say that GIRLS RULE, FINALLY! Ha ha.
Oh my, do they rule. With Jim working all the time and me home for this semester they talked us into homeschooling them. So it is girl time all the time. Sometimes I revel in it and we bake and sew together, play board games and really enjoy each other's company; after the school work is finished of course. Other times I want to hide from my teen and preteen daughters, go back to bed, pull the covers up over my head and make them and the world go away. I must admit the latter of the two doesn't happen nearly as often as the first scenario and my waist can prove it.
We have great plans for this time while the girls are in power. I realize they will be grown and gone in the blink of an eye and this time is precious.
Poor Jim doesn't stand a chance with the three of us when we have a like mind about going out for dinner or him bringing something home for us. He has always spoiled us and now I have to mediate for him sometimes to keep those little darlings from driving him to distraction with their requests. LOL
I do have to admit we spoil him back as much as he spoils us. I think the man would starve if we didn't pack his lunch for him and we make his favorites as much as possible. He hardly lifts a finger around the house anymore because he is working and we are here to do it. I spoke about the possibility of getting a job today and Jim was asking me questions. Alicia chimed in quickly "It's okay dad I can pack your lunch as good as mom." He wasn't worried about his lunch but it was cute that she was.
Well, I'm off to bed to get up tomorrow and be teacher, housekeeper, beautician, nurse, dog walker, cook, writer, sales person, wife and mom. Wow those are a lot of hats no wonder I have a sore neck LOL
