New and Improved Halloween photos. Well, only a couple of them. But I did promise!
On Halloween when Rob came home, I was already there, having had a half day off to pick up Mittens at the vet's and go to the doctor. He comes in and he starts chuckling. "What's so funny?" I glowered, frowning...and as I frowned I could feel that watch cap on my brow and realized I was still in costume and he hadn't seen it yet that day. :)
I'm feeling conflicted. I guess that's a new agey term for the blues :) I want to have my boys stay with me the week of Christmas, but I have no vacation days left. I emailed Dave and Laura and asked. Laura wrote back that she didn't think it was a good idea for them to be left unsupervised...basically telling me no.
Part of me is really pissed off...after all, Chris is 15 and Phil is going on 12...they're plenty old enough now to leave alone (unlike when Dave and Laura would leave the boys unattended when they were much younger...but oh! did I say that??) with some basic instructions. It's not like I'm going away for the week; I have to go to work and will be out of the house till 5:30PM. As far as I know, the boys will be unsupervised over at their own house for those days anyhow. The other teeny part of me agrees that I'd rather they not be left alone...but I know they would be whether at my home or theirs.
It's times like this that I really wish I hadn't decided that boys belong with their father. My boys really belong with their mother... I don't know how involved their dad is in their lives; their stepmom sure is, though ;)
