We're back! Yesterday consisted of laundry, unpacking, laundry, attempting to feed the boyz with the meager contents of our cupboards and fridge, laundry, yawning, and laundry. (With some de-toxing thrown in there for good measure.)
Today should be much more relaxed, as I'm JUST ABOUT DONE WITH THE DAMN LAUNDRY.
So first thing this morning, Hubby ventured out to the store, as I don't think it would be legal to continue to feed my children nothing but hot dogs, stale bagels and sour(ish) milk, as I did yesterday.
Don't judge. There was laundry to be done.
Anyway, on the list I provided for him, was The Item Dreaded By Every Man ("TIDBEM" for short)...
I knew this would cause him some consternation, so I made sure I was specific - Tampax Super Tampons.
Easy enough, right?
About 20 minutes after he left, the phone rang.
Just as I suspected, TIDBEM Trouble.
"Hey, I'm standing in the aisle here. Didja want super long?"
Which immediately caused me to ponder when they started making tampons in LENGTH sizes. Kinda weird.
"Yeah, they have that kind or Always brand."
And then I realized he was looking at MAXI-PADS, not tampons.
So with a little guidance from me, as I STAYED ON THE PHONE and talked him down the aisle to the proper product, he managed to find that elusive blue and green box of tampons. But just as I was getting ready to hang up the phone, I heard,
"Wait! So didja want 40 or 58?"
JUST BUY ME A DARN BOX OF TAMPONS, DUDE.
