Couch Potato

I was fussing at Zach yesterday for not bringing his spelling folder home to study for a test today and he told me, "Nanaw, you just don't understand about school stuff, you get to stay here and lay on the couch all day."

He's very lucky to still be walking upright.

My first Thursday chore was to install the newest version of Norton Internet Security. Since I have this blasted dial up, I order the disc for the install every year and Norton is not Brenda friendly because it doesn't come with enough instructions for those of us who NEED plenty of instruction. It's also a slight aggravation when I have to look all over the house for my rarely used reading glasses in order to read the teeny, tiny print that I'm sure they hire a teeny, tiny fairy with a teeny, tiny pen to write for them. Then the rebate thingy was written by the fairy's pet ant.

Chore #2 was to complete 2 Ark State amended returns for a client. It's a chore for me because to do this stuff I have to take my thoughts back to 2005 when I have problems making them go back to what was going on last week. They're all ready to put in the mail now though, thank goodness.

Chore #3 was to REdo a sales tax report that was lost by the good ole US Postal Service for another client.

Today I would lay around on the couch all day except that I need to do the chores that I didn't do yesterday due to those other chores I had to do. Maybe I'll remember to turn on Fox television network so I can catch one of those court TV programs. Have ya'll seen one of those? I don't know how those judges keep their cool cause I'd be rolling in the floor laughing at some of those folks. They should be on the comedy channel.

OK, so for whatever reason blogger wasn't updating your page when I visited. I just hit refresh for the hell of it and imagine my surprise when I saw a whole bunch of posts! So if you've been wondering why I haven't commented, that's why. Jeesh!

I love when people think that just because you stay home you must be lounging around doing nothing.

Kids don't always get it. It's a surprise that this soon after summer vacation he thinks you're a couch potato.

Hasn't he been watching?

Brenda said...

I hope you're feeling better soon Miz Tammy.

Sometimes this internet business does some weird stuff Miz AP.

And I couldn't get a chance to have a lay down on the couch all summer if I'd have wanted to Miz Cassie, he was here and Nanaws don't get naps around him. Ha. He was just angry because he couldn't stay at home with me.

Whoooeee! They learn early how to push buttons, don't they? I hope PawPaw wasn't around to hear that and encourage him with a chuckle, which is what the PaPa in this house would have done.

Sounds like little Zach is already thinking and talkin like a man! That's funny (oh, sorry no it wasn't)! :)

PEA said...

LOL don't you love what kids can come out with??? I've had a couple of relaxing days, had to slow down, couldn't even think straight anymore!! I don't think I'd have the energy to keep up with a little one anymore...maybe i'll feel differently once i get my own grandkids! lol

Zach reminds me of my older brother. One day he came home from school and asked my mother what it was like going out west in the covered wagons. He is still walking upright too.

You're lucky the teeny tiny fairy's pet ant's flea didn't write the stuff.

Ha.

I hope you have a good weekend.

Ut oh, BUSTED, Nanaw! ;)

Those reading glasses can be very mischievous!

Then the rebate thingy was written by the fairy's pet ant.

That cracked me up (almost as much as Zach's comments).
