Trying to have a positive day

My mood isn't much better. I'm trying to make myself be happy though.

I think my main problem today is Scott. My lovely husband. His knee is all swollen. Yes, this is the knee that he just had surgery on this past fall. It is about 3 times the size it should be and he doesn't want to call the doctor. He is sure that it's because he has a cold and the cold is starting to settle in that knee because it was recently operated on. I'm not buying it.

I told him fine, don't call the doctor and when you end up having that knee replaced now instead of 10 years from now I wouldn't be sending him flowers while he is in the hospital. That'll teach him won't it? Ha I laugh at myself.

Anyways, on to better and more humorous things. Like Harley.

Harley's personality has emerged. And it is just like his fathers. He is stubborn, obstinate, funny, and will do anything to make us laugh. His opinions are definite and if he doesn't like something he will let you know. I found him climbing onto the kitchen counter the other day and when I asked him what he was doing he sat down and smiled innocently at me and said Cookie Please?

He loves pushing the kitchen chairs around so he can climb up onto or into something to get what he is after. I've found the kitchen chair in his sister's room, in the laundry area, and our bathroom. I'm tempted to bolt down our chairs.

He has also found the joy of birthday cake. He knows he has cake left and he is trying to refuse to eat any other food but his CAKE. Or rather, the frosting on his cake, the actual cake part he won't touch. He runs around the house yelling for cake. He's drinking his milk and juice though so I'm not going to worry too much. Oh, he'll eat spinach. But that's about it right now.

Now I should probably go do some work. My next course finally showed up so I must get to studying.

Cake anyone?

I third it that he should go to the doctor but he's a man. Yes I am being sexist about it. Stubborn stubborn man!

I'm working towards business management. I started out working with marketing but I changed my mind. I'm doing it all through my company so I don't have to pay for it, unless I fail, and I can do it all online!
