The Ten Things I Wish My Hubby Could Understand

There are things that my hubby does that drive me bonkers, and the things I wish he would take the time to learn. We are in to deep to call it quits, I have devoted my life to being at his beck and call cause he needs me to do so. Sometimes he needs a ride, sometimes he needs someone to listen, and I do it all to no avail. These are the things he should be doing for me but doesn’t.

1. If I send you a link to an article I think would benefit the both of us, you should take the time to read it. Even if it doesn’t interest you, because its important to me. If you don’t read it and I ask you about it the least you could do is lie, instead of telling me, it didn’t interest you, or that you didn’t want to. It makes me feel important that my opinion matters. 

 

2. Get OFF YOUR DAMN PHONE. When your gone for weeks and come home, I want some time too, I don’t want to watch you play games on your phone all day. 

 

3. If you’re trying to talk to me when I’m reading don’t assume I’m not listening, I’m not you, and I can read and carry a conversation at the same time, just like I can cook and talk on the phone at the same time. 

 

4. If I ask you to do something, just do it, like NOW, not 3 weeks from now. 

 

5. I don’t want to have to beg for sex. If you’re gone for two weeks that means I’m deprived, when I want something I want it right then, it’s not always about you. Even though you make it about you to make me feel bad. If we can’t come to a compromise, it will end badly. 

 

6. IM NOT YOUR MAID. I don’t want to wake up one morning and find all your dirty clothes laying all over the house because your to lazy to put them in the laundry room, next time I’m going to throw them in the garbage. I have enough on my plate as it is. 

 

7. I don’t want to watch action movies every day. When I pick a movie I want to watch the least you could do is watch it with me instead of telling me your bored. 

 

8. Stop thinking about what you want. There comes a time in a relationship that were supposed to share our life goals and work towards them, not just your goals, again it will end badly. 

 

9. I want to sleep in, some days I need an extra hour but when you refuse to get up, it makes me angry. I do just as much as you do, so make it equal.

10. Don’t start bugging me for things first thing in the morning. If I haven’t had my coffee yet, then I’m not going to know where your things are, and I’m not going to answer twenty questions either. I’m going to yell at you, so just be warned.

 

 

 

 


Getting there

Sorry about my hiatus. We haven’t had Internet in a while so I haven’t been able to post as there is no spell Check on my phone. So I will be back Thursday or Friday. We’re having a heck tick week over here.
Oh yea sorry about the mistakes cause there probably is some I will fix it when I can use my computer


Who Needs Them?

It’s been a while since I have written anything, first it started out my laptop was in the shop cause it was doing something weird. Didn’t have it for about a week, so that kind of screwed me, my phone doesn’t have very good spell check.

 

So I got my laptop back and decided I would try to put something together, I didn’t have any ideas or motivation. I pondered for a few days, and then I got this excruciating pain in my mouth, that affected every aspect of my life. It was crippling I couldn’t think straight, nothing helped, I ended up at the dentist, which I hate for the fact that I keep giving them money and things just keep getting worse. Anyways off to the dentist I went, and after twenty minutes of torture, he finally decided to tell me that I would need a…. double root canal and two crowns, so I asked the only question I could, what’s this going to cost me?

 

He assured me he had no idea; I went home to ponder my options, double root canal or double extractions. This was all while I waited for them to phone me to let me know what it would cost. I waited and I waited, finally I phoned and asked why they hadn’t called, I was pretty sure it was a time sensitive issue. When they finally gave me the estimate for the root canal I almost had a heart attack, she said to me on the phone “option 1 will cost you about 5000”, her tone of voice was like it was the most normal thing in the world. Well my second option will cost me about 85 dollars mind you I will be down two more teeth on one side, where I already had two pulled, but being a mom and paying bills, I don’t have an extra 5000 to dish out for two teeth. I’m not sure who would, that’s crazy in my mind, and the tooth they wanted it for I have had filled five times over and the fillings just fall out anyways.

 

I go to the dentist in the morning so that he can remove them and maybe I can get back to some semblance of life. People wonder why I despise the dentist, well this is why, you pay them a bunch of money over and over and then there is always more money they ask you for. It will never end I could have no teeth and I still need to pay them to allow me to have teeth, it’s a cruel world.

Who needs teeth anyways, I may be down four all on one side but I still have a bunch more in there.

 

 


Check The Toy Box?

This morning I was going through my sons toy box, trying to find some missing toys. Well I never did find the missing toys I did find a few other things.

I found my laptop mouse, three old cell phones, my missing cord for my Kobo, three forks (no wonder I had none). Twelve missing soothers ( kept buying more cause they kept disappearing). Three books, two cups, four spoons, and a box of Cheerios that went missing.

Your probably thinking how can you not notice those things missing. I knew they were missing but Rueben is a master of hiding places, he also has enough toys to fill three toy boxes so he put them in there and covered them with toys, and when I put the rest of the toys away I didn’t notice. Until he started unloading his toy box and I decided to help find some missing toys. Well looks like he’s going to need to find a new hiding place cause I’m on to him.

Also need to watch his toy box more carefully.


Broken Promises

I know that I never talked about my new years resolutions. This is what I promised my self I would do this year.

1.Get in shape

2. Keep my house cleaner

3. Be better at this stay at home mom thing

4. Start my ideas for my book

5.Spend more time playing with my son

These were my five promises, that i have already broken. Im not getting into shape, even though I said I would. I got a kinnect for my Xbox and then went out and got fitness evolved 2012, it basically turns my living room into a home gym. I was doing great the first week, I was following the program, I ended up loosing seven pounds. then the last 2 weeks nothing, I havent been finding time to even turn it on to try. I ended up gaining ten pounds, so now I weigh more than when I started. Really need to try to get back to that one.

I wanted to become the perfect stay at home mom, which also means keeping my house super clean all the time, which means dishes are done, laundry is done, and everything else is spotless. Instead its more like the same as it was before, dishes at least made it to the sink. pile of clean laundry that has yet to be folded in two weeks. I have a pile of laundry that still needs to be done. So much for that one.

I also wanted to get started on ideas for the book I want to write. I always knew I was going to write one. Instead I started a blog, that has seven posts I wont even read over cause Im sure I wont like them. I went out and got a book on how to get ideas for writing a book. ironic isn’t it? I havent had one good idea that could turn into a novel. Maybe this one will come to me later.

Lastly, I wanted to spend more time playing with my son, but instead its more like I try to play with him, he gets frustrated and throws a tantrum because he wants to do it himself. I just leave him to his own devices now, until he decides he can play nicely. He did however say a word, it was “duck”. Now when i ask him what he wants, he says duck for everything. At least its a step in the right direction.

There are my resolutions, and I barely even tried to fill them. Their just broken promises now. Oh well better luck next year.


Overrun By Toys

There are all kinds of toys everywhere, just not any kind of toys either. They have lights, they sing, they make animal noises, they move by themselves and they making annoying sounds. Their every where on my stairs, counter tops, in corners, all over the living room floor, in the cupboards, behind the TV, on the kitchen table and even in the bath tub. You need to remove the toys just to have a shower.

These toys are like little bombs, you accidentally bump one and they all start going off, then your slammed by the sounds of ABC’s, 123’s, the meowing, barking, mooing, and the vroom vroom of a car all at once, talk about sensory overload. Why do these little people need so many toys? All the toys that you can buy make noise, there is no such thing as a quiet toy, and they are also known as developmental.

It’s not just the toys that have taken over my house, it is also blocks, mega blocks, Lego blocks, you name it. These are the real nuisances as they fit easily into corners, and in your shoes. They have sharp edges when you step on them, or when you’re trying to get to bed silently and u accidentally kick one of these blocks into the noisy toys then your just begging for baby to wake up crying.

Lately I haven’t bothered to pick up these toys, when I pick them up and put them away they end up right back where they were in the middle of the floor, and so this is day in day out. My life has been over run by these annoying little toys.

There’s nothing like climbing into bed to find your sons books artfully placed under the pillows or his hot wheels placed at the foot of your bed.

I suppose this is the life of a stay at home mom, your house gets over run, I’m just waiting for the day when the toys come alive to get their revenge.


Sweet Words

So as Hubby and I were lying in bed, we got to talk since we only had one day together and it seemed to go by so fast. Here’s how the conversation went

Me: Your going back to work tomorrow

Hubby: Yeah and?

Me: Your supposed to be serenading me with your sweet words

Hubby: Oreo cookies

Candy canes

(Thinking)     PLUM SAUCE
