Iron fist in velvet glove beats the gnashing and snarling of a mad dog. Oh, I mean when I suggested to hubby that he go on a dog walk with his nephew alone, he snarled that he had already made arrangement to go with a friend and why should he change his plans, blah, blah, blah. He seems to think that my covert proddings are enabling. I just think it’s better than being frustrated. At the heart of it all, he loves his nephew deeply and though he may be disappointed in him from time to time, he is a good kid and it’s a freaking miracle he’s not completely screwed up. DH just missed having him to himself. I left him all snarly and pissed and as I’m leaving for work, nephew is trailing behind him with the dog. Mmmm, seems like my way won out. Shades of what my future is going to be.
In-laws (plus their dog) arrive today, it’s going to be a full house. Luckily, I’m working again tonight but I gotta come home sometime. Pray for me. Nam myo ho renge kyo. Two final words…. pinot grigio.
