It was after all. Mrs. Ps idea for me to take a week of vacation.. She muttered something about being so behind in so much of her spring work.. she needed me to stay home.. watch the zoo.. and just in general take a break from our daily routine.. I was skeptical at first.. knowing Mrs. P.. but she DID mention it would be nice to be able to go out and eat together a few times..
THAT was a low blow. to bring food into the equation. I have few weaknesses.. and you all know what they are.. but food.. ranks even better than a trip to Vegas with GL Butterfly in my book..

And so.. I did start a week's vacation.. at home.. I looked forward to sleeping in late.. drinking coffee till noon.. watching all the ESPN I could .. and now and then letting the dogs out to play maybe.. All while I schemed on which tex mex restaurant we would go to for dinner.. Ah.. what a life.. no work at all for a week....

Day one went fine.. I got up at noon or a couple of hours later.. who after all is looking at the clock.. I am on vacation. watched sports while I drank my coffee till dinnertime.. Didn't see much of Mrs P.. she was way too busy to interfere with my vacation.. Life was as it should be..

Day two.. Slept in a bit.. after all.. don't have a thing to do.. a care in the world.. and I knew Mrs. P would be cleaning house and doing her usual yardwork, paying bills, making appointments. having the oil changed and so on.. Good thing for me.. Mrs. P does it all.. there is absolutely no limit to the amount of work I can dump on .. er.. she will take on..

All of sudden.. with no warning at all.. Mrs. P opens the door to the man cave.. Just proof she knows no boundaries .. Frankly right then and there I shoulda closed the door in her face.. which explains why her face it so flat for those who did not already know.. but for some reason.. I thought she was going to volunteer to cook my breakfast or lunch or at least brunch..

And then she opened her mouth..

'' I need you to take me to the lumberyard '' said Mrs. P..

Now I ask you.. does that sound like anything to do with food at all ?. sigh..

'' I don't want to go... '' I said.. bravely. .OBVIOUSLY I had not enough coffee yet or my brain would have been working better..

And then IT HAPPENED.. While I had expected only the usual flare of her infamous nostrils.. the worst thing happened..

Mrs. P eyes went wide open.. and I knew what that meant.. It meant she had an idea.. and I knew what that meant.. it meant it was going to cost me big bucks..

After she had that PINK palace build a couple of stories back. I thought I was safe again from further influence from HGTV.. In fact even had Mrs. P watching Food network instead.. but obviously her first love was not the same as I..

One could have hoped Mrs P only needed a new lawnmower or some more nails to fix all the things around the house.. but.... nope.. I would not be so lucky..

Sensing my hesitation. Mrs. P hits below the belt..

''On the way home we can stop and have dinner ''

So I dressed for the lumberyard.. But that was not good enough for Mrs P.. who then began to quote from Mufffets Dress thread..
OMG.. I knew then to just change clothes..

And of course even that would not satisfy Mrs. P.. who insisted we stop for a haircut for me .. in her words..'' If we are going to be eating out TOGETHER.. You have to have a haircut..''
REALLY ? I saw no thread on haircuts.. where does she get this info from..
But who cares.. as long as I get to pick the restaurant..

So .. I asked.. apparently not having learned anything in all the years I have been married to Mrs P..


What are we getting from the lumberyard. ?''

'' Lumber '' she replied..

Now in all fairness I ask you ladies.. .'' Is that a lame answer or not.. cuz Mrs. P claims it was a lame question ''

Now keep in mind.. I am the offended innocent party in all of Mrs. Ps adventures.. you all know that. goes without sayin....

And so .. When Mrs. P explained to me she simply could not stand watching me sit in front of the TV for an entire week.. sleeping in till noon and watching Leave it to Beaver shows into the night.. I think she was being a bit judgmental.. After all .. this was my vacation..
And so when Mrs P.. said she was not going to stay inside the house with me with the weather being so gorgeous outside.. and when she said that watching me watch TV was not her cup of tea. I think she was being so unreasonable.. I am sure you ladies see my point here.. Bless your hearts..

Whoa, Mr. P. Food ranks better than a trip to Vegas with me? If memory serves, we enjoyed a lot of food on our Vegas trips. (as well as other things).

I must say that I am enjoying our phone calls while Mrs. P is keeping herself busy--all that yard work and building stuff, or whatever it is that she is doing. Good job---keep her busy.

Maybe I can fly in and see you. What do you think?

That's Gl = for Gloria, not G. I.

Now I know KNOW KNOW better than to ask too many questions of Mrs. P.. less I become too deeply involved in her ventures.. But I had to ask.. just HAD to ask.. as she grabbed a flat bed cart from the parking lot. For those who don't know.. a flat bed cart means big time work.. otherwise you can use the regular read or orange ones to put a simple can of paint in..
I was wanting after all just to go eat as quickly as possible.. seeing I looked so good in my new haircut..
'
'' What are we needing ? OMG.. Shut me up.. close my door.. what was I thinking ?

Did I REALLY say WE ?
