today was a great sunday. i needed it. i deep cleaned the whole entire house yesterday. why you ask? well, the other day i told sean that on friday, after work, i was going to come home and do the dishes. our house was a disaster. we have had something going on every night this week, and there were spaghetti dishes crowding the entire sink. pretty sure that a noodle winked at me the other night.
just so you all know, i made the spaghetti that sean had started but then he mysteriously had to leave to "help out some people in the ward" (i don't buy it. this is how he has to get me to cook) then i did not eat any of it because i wasn't hungry. and to prove a point.. but mostly just because i wasn't hungry.
anyway, back to the dishes. i kind of felt like he should do them. but then i remembered that he is in school and i am just a pathetic lazy butt, so i told him i would. however, when i came home from work on friday, they were already done. sean looked at me and smiled when i noticed.
"you punk!! i told you that i had dibs on them!" i said.
"but chloe, i didn't do them! i promise!"
"oh yeah right sean. the dishes just magically did themselves. we don't live at hogwarts you liar. not that you would even know what that is because you are too cool to watch harry potter. you break my heart."
"my mom came over and did them."
the room got incredibly silent. thunder clouds boomed in the background.
"excuse me? you let your mom in our disgusting, messy house? you had your mom do OUR dishes? you let her see the rest of the house like this? i mean i know it's no secret that i am not very good at cleaning and being domestical,(yes i made that up i think) but still? did you just come home and let her in, and just watch her do them??"
sean mumbles, "she used her key."
i didn't even know she had a copy. which for the record i have no problem with.. i just felt bad because she works so hard and he actually let her come do the dishes. i am very grateful that she did. i love you vicki! you are amazing. however, sean didn't seem to get why it might be a little bit embarrassing for me. i wanted him to do the dishes. its like the movie the break up. "i want you to want to do the dishes!"
not that sean really should have done the dishes. sigh. i should have. i should have done them 3 days ago. but i just wanted sean to want to want to do them...
because really i just didn't want to.. and to prove a point. probably.
