My sis and bro-in law have been living in our wonderful and cozy basement for a few weeks. their house was not ready to move in to and they needed some temporary lodging. "cheeto and sassy" (my kids call them) are super easy to have around. they come in and out with little noise, it is fun for me because my sister is around and we get to hang out. cheeto is awesome and the kids think he is freakin' SUPERMAN. they attack him with hugs and love, and sword swats. they chunk toys at him.... which he catches and chunks back at them. he wrestles with them which is as great as SIX FlAGS without any lines! once, they even helped us clean the house. that was good. they are pretty easy house guests...and if i did not miss walking around the house in my birthday suit so much i would say they could stay forever. well, that was UNTIL they were STOLEN outright by my mother. and now there is a small battle for the "hosting" position.
SEE, they had to leave for the weekend to make room for my in-laws. we waved goodbye to them for THREE NIGHTS and sent them over to my parent's house. SEE Y'ALL IN THREE NIGHTS. well.....they have disappeared. into the abyss of my mother and her "BREAKFAST MEALS"...and her "LAUNDRY SERVICE" and her "WHAT DO Y'ALL WANT FOR DINNER BECAUSE I AM GOING TO THE STORE AND YOU CAN JUST TELL ME AND I WILL BUY IT AND COOK IT UP ALL NICE AND YUM YUM FOR THE BOTH OF YOU!!!"
Mother, i know you are reading this and you are SHAMELESSSSSSSSSSS!
my sister actually told me that there were more perks over there and they were going to stay over there for a while. OUCH. that stings a bit and if i have to make a breakfast burrito or two i will to get them back.
the battle is ON....MOTHER!
right now our basement still houses ALL of their hanging clothes and if they think that they can just LEAVE them here and come and go as they please to change out clothes WELL......they can't because i am going to WEAR YOUR CLOTHES, SASSY! OH YEA, I said it! OH YES I Di-id. So, come home to the place that was THERE FOR YOU from the beginning of the construction and destruction of your house. we are here. missing you. come back to the stomping over your head, the early morning wake-up calls, the late night wine and theological discussions. the PRECIOUS discussions with butter about star wars and all of the characters. the admiration of an 8 year old that thinks her aunt is miley cyrus herself. AND let us not forget the constant entertainment by a delusional 4 year old that is SURE he IS the one and only SPIDERMAN.
Cheeto and Sassy, we give you THREE MORE DAYS (on your "vacation")to come to your senses and return before we change the locks.
