My husband and I have been together forÂ a long timeÂ (sixteen years in August)Â and have become very comfortable with each other, to the point where we find ourselves finishing each others sentences.
Okay - go ahead and puke, now - I'll wait.
Don't get me wrong - it's not all sunshine and rainbows - we have our moments.Â But, luckily, those are far and few in between...his job...the kids...my job...the kids...yardwork...the kids...housework...the kids...well, you get what I'm saying.
There's very little chance for us to give each other a dirty look, let alone get down and dirty.
So, we do the next best thing - text messaging.
Me: (w/pic) You can come home, now.
Him: What's in it for me...
Me: (w/pic) Me...
Him: Which you?
Me:Â (w/pic - censored) BOTH!
Him:Â On my way!
Me:Â Starting dinner...
No - not the dirtiest of conversations, is it? - not much happening, here.Â But, for us - it's foreplay...in nineteen words, or less!
[silence, followed by the sound of crickets]
Um...you like my new glasses?
That's what I would have written, yesterday - but, it was the last day of school and the kids were wired, and I was tired...and they all started going to bed around 10...and well...you know.
So, here's today's REAL post:
Summer Vacation - Day 1
4:30 a.m. - Woke up (stupid birds!)
5:00 a.m. - Quickly, walked dog.
6:30 a.m. - Woke up (stupid bladder!)
7:00 a.m. - Startled awake...then reminded by hubs, "Relax...no school...remember!?!"
7:20 a.m. - Reminded hubs, "Come home early...it's been awhile...you know!?!"
7:21 a.m. - Hubs says, "You're going out...Pampered Chef...remember!?!"
7:22 a.m. - Remind hubs, "Maybe tomorrow night?"
8:10 a.m. - Turned toward hubs, snuggled close and kissed him...BLEH!...GAH! (stupid dog!)
Okay...so, I needed a cuddle...the hubs left earlier than usual...and I thought the dog was...well...anyway...it's day one (half gone, already)Â of summer vacationÂ and the kids and I have enjoyed a very...slow...morning.
And we swam, some more.
10:00 a.m. -Â eating their second breakfast (my first).
10:05 a.m. - They're done and already asking, "What are we going to do, next!?!"
10:10 a.m. - Kicked at laundry pile, popped in "Wallace and Grommit" and sat some more.
10:40 a.m. - Back to kitchen (stupid Wallace and Grommit)
11:00 a.m. - Put bread in the oven, lit the tea pot and sat some more.
11:15 a.m. - Sitting, sipping, breathing.
Nope, nothing much happening here.
[throws arms into the air and twirls around the kitchen]
God, I love summer vacation...so far, anyway - I think I'llÂ go...you know...hang with the kids (stupid breasts)Â and sit some more - have a great weekend, everyone!
