my husband works shifts and on the current shift he gets 1 day off a week and this being spring break week, we made plans to take our son to the zoo. (hes never been to a zoo and hes all sorts of excited!) i bought snacks to take with us and i think i'm going to pack a picnic lunch for us too. well somehow my brother found out and wants to join us along with his daughter. its not that i dont like their company, it just seems that me and my family never get to go and do anything by ourselves because someone ALWAYS ends up tagging along. not to mention, im going to have his daughter over the weekend and im taking them to the movies and the circus, so its not like shes going to be missing out on any fun. (not to mention i took her to the park yesterday. AND my mother wonders why i didn't offer to baby sit my nieice for her today so she could go to the dr...... but thats another rant all together) how can i explain to my brother that for once, we'd like to get away by ourselves??
