Dear Angel,

I'M SORRY... that you drove 12 hrs to come home and there was chorizzo and eggs waiting for you at 8 am when you arrived.

I'M SORRY... that we (the kids and I) let you sleep, so that you can be well rested from that drive, in order to spend valuable time with your family.

I'M SORRY... that we went to Best Buy to look at car stereos because that is what you said you wanted for your truck (even though you ran off a list of maintanance issues that need to be addressed on your truck).

I'M SORRY... that when we realized the price of the stereos (plus Sirius Satellite the installation charge) that I immediately knew it was better to wait until we get paid on THURSDAY and FRIDAY before we decided to purchase this bundle.

I'M SORRY... that I know what our priorities are and listed them OUT LOUD to you (which include such petty things like...the remainder of the kids school supplies, their school uniforms, gas, food, rent and utilities).

I'M SORRY... that you got a shitty attitude toward me because you couldn't get what you wanted RIGHT THEN AND THERE!

I'M SORRY... that you drove like a maniac on the highway with the kids in the truck and didn't give a shit because you were throwing a man-sized tantrum.

I'M SORRY... that I asked you to leave me at home, by myself, because I didn't want to go with you to your uncle's house right after that so that you can BBQ and drink and be merry with everyone else besides me because you didn't get what you wanted.

I'M SORRY... that I'm upset because I can't give you what you want until Thursday or Friday.

I'M SORRY... that I am sitting at home alone and you don't give a shit.

I'M SORRY... that I was being SOOO selfish today.

Can you please forgive me?

Sheesh... YOU DECIDED to be responsible and he has a fit! MEN!
You are a good woman.

Mom Taxi Julie said...

I'm sorry for you.

~Sheila~ said...

insane mama:
Yes, that is usually what happens when it comes to dealing with men.

mom taxi julie:
Thank you, it was not a good night for me.

AFRo said...

Mother Fucker. Sorry. But, it's totally appropriate here.

~Sheila~ said...

Your words are very appropriate. I was muttering them ALL night about him because I don't like to really do the whole "out-loud" name calling. I prefer if he doesn't call me names out loud also cause if he does, he sleeps at someone else's house.

Cyn said...

Aww what a shitface. He's not my cousin this weekend. Well I need to call Rikki for the details we discussed earlier.

Moe Wanchuk said...

Hey...waiting til thursday or friday would give me something to look forward to.

Diva Ma said...

Tell him to stop being a baby! You didn't say he couldn't have the darn thing! Sheesh! Can the kids get their darn uniforms before you get something fun fun? What an ass!

~Sheila~ said...


No matter what, he's still your cousin. He will be better. He has no choice.

Moe Wanchuk:
Yeah I know, but some people aren't seeing it like that.

Diva ma:
He's over it now. And he feels pretty guilty (and stupid) because he caused so much unnecessary drama that night.

Shelby said...

Aww love. It happens like this sometimes, eh? Hugs for you.

The men are sometimes the biggest babies, aren't they/
