Hubby just called three times while I was outside. Three times in a row. Then my cell phone. Twice in a row.

Between the hours of 1 and 4 pm, the same naptime hours that have been clearly established in this house for three and a half years.


He wanted me to check lotto numbers from August 26's Mega Millions 77 million dollar jackpot.

Now I have a one year old that has had a 45 minute nap and was awoken by a constant phone ring. She won't go back to sleep. We have dinner plans in Austin. Where she will ultimately have a total meltdown due to lack of quality nap time.

All for what?

So Hubby could find out that he does have to stay at work the rest of the day. We won't be buying a 2,ooo acre ranch in South Texas. We won't be buying that 5,000 square foot house on 10 acres in Double Horn. And I won't be driving a mack daddy Escalade anytime soon.

He better be glad he's handsome and pays my bills.

He might be getting a frosty reception at the door this evening if he were my husband. And much more quality time with his one year old this evening at dinner. Yes, the quality time is definitely in order. ;)

Sorry you didn't win the Mega Millions. If you do though, can you buy me something??
