~ Like Glue ~

I was looking forward to tonight.  I love Fridays.  They are so full of the anticipation of the freedom of the weekend.  And by freedom, I mean sleeping in.

It was slated to be an awesome family night, too.  They are so hard to come by with everyone’s busy schedule.  I figured we’d all enjoy a nice family meal, then sit down and enjoy a movie in the family room on the saggy couch together.  Then maybe have some ice cream and play a card game, and then a late bed time.

I put home-made chili in the crockpot this morning.  I made a sweetcorn cake for the side dish this afternoon.  I bought a movie we haven’t watched before.  It was all coming together.

Then Gwen’s afternoon playdate extended past dinner and became a sleepover.

And Garrick declared he didn’t want to watch the new movie; instead he wanted to watch How To Train Your Dragon for the 12th time this week.

And Troy announced he was going to his friend Rob’s house to try the new beer they just finished brewing and aging.

This family, I swear!  They’ve got me sniffing myself to see if its me they are avoiding.  Why couldn’t I have a bunch of introverts in my clan?  Dag-gum extroverts are such a pain in the petootie.

I don’t know where they get it.
