Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting

So, Aaron finally got home yesterday afternoon. The first thing I said to him was, "You're taking me out to dinner."

We went to Outback Steakhouse, where they have a gluten-free menu.

Dinner was a fiasco and took over two hours. Every 15 minutes, Aaron kept reminding me, "I really hate this. You realize I hate this, don't you?" After an hour and a half of his reminders -- and an hour and a half of the children screaming -- I stopped laughing.

They do not know how to make gluten-free rice. And they were completely incompetent at making Darwin a dairy-free steak.

They did comp our dinner but I didn't get a brownie. Damn it.


Our washer and dryer are scheduled to be delivered tomorrow between 3 and 7 p.m. Yeah, we'll see if Aaron's still in town for it.


Apparently, Darwin is under the impression that my name is not "Mommy." He keeps calling me Money.


Both boys are running fevers after having motrin an hour ago. Nice.

Ahhhh, crappy day. You know what I just decided- and I'm sure you've never thought of this- Aaron needs a different job.

P.S. You know we spend the rest of the day singing the songs you're titles come from.

Yuck city! I can't believe it took you an hour and a half to stop laughing. I'd been sour as soon as we got there. Hope your babies are feeling better soon and that your hubby can perhaps stay in town for the day.
good luck with the washer deliver.
