and then I stormed out

ACTUAL STATEMENT TO HUSBAND: Everyone in this house is going to live a lot longer if you let me go run the errands. By myself. NOW.

ACTUAL REPLY FROM HUSBAND: (as he fights off quarreling children and deals with 100 lb puppy who wants to sprong on everything) Really? But why?

And of course if you actually try to explain it takes more time then if you were just allowed to carry on your business! Arrrgh!!

Storming out,occasionally. without explanation,is an important component of the Keeping Your Sanity While Raising Children Program. Glad to see you're keeping yourself on track!

I'm with Christy, you should have had a suitcase for the errands!
