Why is it the weekend days never last as long as the work days? Where did today go?

I thought I was helping hubby today.

The driveway needed to be resealed.

I swept it then blew it off.

We have a very long drive way as well as a turn around.

He was working sooooo hard.

I said to myself .. self .. you can do that too.

So I grabbed a 2nd bucket of sealer and started spreading it around.

I stopped when I heard him say something I really can't repeat here.

I was so into what I was doing and how I was "helping" that I didn't realize I had trapped him in the driveway.

There he stood completely surrounded by fresh, wet, stinky and sticky driveway sealer

All is well though, he just walked through my handywork and told me next time I should just sit there and look pretty while he does the work !

It's a thought. It seems sitting is causing the problem. When I am up and doing things its all but gone. Thanks.

Everytime I try to help my son when he is doing something for me, he just says, "You're helping again!" My clue to go sit down and stay out of his way.

I end up taking a nap every Saturday for 3 or so hours, my time off from work and I feel like I should be up enjoying something!

Well, the bed did feel very good. My Dr said I was very low on vitamin B12 so I'm sure I am tired!
