And the Oscar goes to….
I made a movie as a presentation at work. In fact, it was fun. Project management is fine as a way to pay the bills, but let’s face it… The creative is where my heart is at. It got rave reviews at work so figured maybe I could have an outlet creating a movie at home.
After an absolutely crap weekend that saw the Squeeze and I barely on speaking terms, we caught up for lunch yesterday and had a “where to” discussion. It was the same debate as usual however this time he did at listen when I said the ‘repeat’ arguments over the same things are not an environment in which I actually want to live.
I was tidying this blog the other day when I noticed that continue to moan and argue about the exact same things that I moaned about years ago! Nothing changes. It is the same with the kid. I don’t want to have to explain to a kid every single day/week that he is there, that the toilet button needs pressing. I don’t want to have the same argument each week about using a teaspoon for anything other than spooning or stirring. It is not an eating utensil.
The Squeeze nodded and said ‘well why don’t you make a list? Document all the things that you say you can’t live with and I’ll discuss them with him.” Although I have no hope of the kid actually listening to them all, I thought maybe a list was the way to go.
When I got home, I thought hmmm stuff the list. I’ll make a movie and call it “A Clean Freak’s Idea of Hell”.
I started filming last night and it annoyed the Hell out of them. I didn’t argue about anything, I just went and grabbed my ipad and then began filming!
