Exhausted Parents

Friday night my boys left to go hang out with my in-laws all weekend. I was not very happy about that. My wife started dancing around a little right after the door closed and I went to the bedroom. She came in and said I know what will make you happy and I said don’t touch me Lol That’s how bs I felt the whole thing was. We decided to go out for a nice quiet dinner at my favorite place and I was getting texts from Brandi at that point. Letting me know they made it. She sent me photos of the boys’ nursery over there. Another photo of their supper. And one more of them in the bath. Then she got them to bed and texted me the time she put them down. I know they are fine. I had already knew I was being ridiculous. I just don’t like being away from them. Big giant sigh.

By Saturday morning and lots and lots of sex later I was feeling more relaxed. Funny how that works. Saturday my wife and I went to 4 things around the City we have wanted to go check out together. It’s one of those things where you hear about it then you say to each other Oh Yeah we need to go check that out. But never do. She picked 2 places. I picked 2 places and we had very nice meals out all day and night. By Saturday night we were too tired to go hang out with any friends. I told her we could go out, she said okay but neither one of us got up off of the couch Lol She said she wanted to sleep in so we would go to the later Church. I was fine with that too. And by Sunday at 4:07pm my boys were back home. I was VERY READY to see them. They did have fun. I got to see a lot of photos of them and a few videos. My mother in law said she would like to do that again sometime and I said maybe next year and didn’t laugh but everyone else did. I was serious. She’s not taking them away again. My wife nudged me and I said nothing. I know it’s healthy and I know it’s good, but no. They are my boys and I decide. I didn’t like it. I didn’t enjoy my weekend I had fun hanging out with my wife and all of the sex of course but I was constantly thinking about them. It’s one of those instinctual things that I can’t explain to anybody. I just knew it felt wrong. My boys were fine. They came back happy, laughing, and full of presents and new clothes. Very sweet of my wife’s family, but no Lol I want my boys with me. I can’t help it. I’m not ready to let them go even for 1 weekend. I did compromise and tell her later on that on my overseas trips they can watch the boys if they want to but don’t tell me about it and she just laughed and said deal. We had a very long talk about it at the family meeting on Sunday night and I told all of the ladies that I just am not ready for that kind of stuff. I won’t even let the part-time nannies take them back to their apartment all weekend. The only reason I let this happen was peer pressure and hoping to give my boys something that I can’t offer them, grandparents. It’s not something I can articulate very well but I’m not ready. That’s when the girls finally understood this was pretty hard for me. I didn’t feel comfortable and I didn’t like it. They thought I was being overly dramatic at first until my wife said you really didn’t have a good weekend, did you? I said no. I thought about my boys 98% of the time. She said okay.

So now I think they understand and we don’t have to go through that again anytime soon. Enough of that.

So here’s the other thing going on with us. My wife is pretty sure she wants to move to Finland. At first I thought it was a huge joke but she said no. The more she researches it the better. And tonight with the news of the explosion in London she says we need to stay out of Paris. She thinks it might be too dangerous. I’m torn. I mean Finland, really? It’s in discussion and we have plenty of time, but Finland?

What else? Everyone is doing great. My boys are happy, healthy, really getting big. I’m able to have full conversations with them now and they do answer with a few words. Sometimes it makes sense. Sometimes not. They look exactly alike. We do have different haircuts on them but I guess everyone this weekend kept saying how they completely look-alike and you can’t really tell who is who. Yeah, that’s what identical twins means Lol

This week I have a few trips out-of-town but I will be home in time for supper. I just have to get up earlier which is no big deal. In fact I need to get off of this and go back my backpack for tomorrow’s trip.

Hey, Dallas, Texas! I will be there in the morning. I’m going to be meeting up with my very hard to reach friend Jackie Overton. We are going to have lunch together and share notes on some things. I love it when the trolls continue to claim I am her, she is me. We are one. Lol Come on ya’ll. Get a F-bomb brain already. You can’t stand being wrong. I understand your need to pick on somebody because your own life is shit, but move on already. No one cares anymore. And leave my friends alone. You go way over the line every single day and it’s not okay. Do I really have to get Lindsay back around to get all of your accounts locked and suspended again? I can do that. It’s very easy for her to do. Other can you people just get a life already and leave me alone?

Nah, I already know that answer. I will call Lindsay tonight Lol

Have a great work week! I hope everyone enjoys the weather this week. See you tomorrow, Dallas!
