"W" Is For Wasted Time

Over dinner Ken normally asks me, "What did you do today?" I silently get over the fact that he hasn't noticed all the floors are vacuumed, the furniture is polished, there aren't any fingerprints on the TV or glass or mirrors, the kitchen floor has been swept, Swiffered, and mopped... The hamper is empty, all our clothes are folded and put away, the dishwasher is empty and there is ne'er a spoon left in the sink. I bite my tongue as I think that all the beds are made up with clean sheets, the bathrooms smell like bleach and they are sparkling (all that pee that I KNOW is not mine is wiped off the floor), the fridge has been cleared out of all the moldy leftovers, and all food smudges have been washed from the exterior. I slowly blink as I hold back my anger from Kenmo not noticing the windows have been washed inside and out, the couch cushions have been vacuumed, all picture frames and baseboards are dusted. This place is a temple! The bills have been sorted and paid, dessert is in the oven, I've picked up a movie for later, and I did up my hair. He must of thought I was say dreaming (and not fuming) because he asks again, "Hun, What did you do today?" I smile and say, "Just played with Kole and wasted time." Because we all know I didn't do all that crap I said. I'm pregnant after all.

Sad thing is, you described almost every day I live, with the addition that I'm at work for 9 hours every day. Also, I'm not pregnant.

I like that you call him "Kenmo" because I call her "J-Mo." But, then again, her name is Jennifer Morris...
Still!
