Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

Wednesday Mind Wanderings


Am I totally rockin' those fake sunglasses thingies
they give you after your eyes are dilated, or what?
__________________________

From this morning:

Boy is much perkier today. He actually wanted to put something in his stomach today, which is a big improvement. What he wanted was soy ice cream at 6:30 in the morning, but what the hey . . . at least he wanted to eat. I figured it would be okay just this once. Please don't tell the mommy police . . .

My mother is going to set foot in my house today. Third time in 2007! No wait . . . 4th. A minor miracle in itself. She lives 45 minutes away, but to hear her tell it she's practically a continent away. I have an ophthalmologist appointment today, so she's coming to watch the kids. She's not happy about it and will bitch about my imperfect housekeeping, but at least she's coming.

You have to understand my mom, who would never leave her house if she had the choice. She prefers that people come to her. When I lived in the same town, she still only set foot in my house maybe 10 times a year, not even once a month. Before I bought a house it was even less. When I went away to college, she came to campus 3 times in 4 years - and one of those was graduation. She never, ever saw where I lived in those 4 years. She'd pull up outside the buildings, but never got out of the car until graduation day. When I lived in Detroit (3 years), she visited twice - and one of those was for graduation. But she drives by herself to Iowa every year to visit her cousins, surviving aunts, and other assorted relatives. My sister and I know where we fall in the hierarchy.

I couldn't figure out why my nipples were so sore this morning. Walking around thinking "This is just weird. Kind of a good sore, but weird." Then I remembered, duh, PiC made me pinch and twist the heck out of them last night in a surprise, extended sexy IM session. Just when I think I'm bored of him and that he's reached the limit of his "freakiness," he surprises me by taking things a little further. I ::heart:: PiC today.

I had just wrapped up a chat with another friend and was headed to bed when PiC popped up on my screen. We haven't had a good IM session (more than hi, miss you, bye) in a long while. The stars apparently aligned, because both our families were in bed so we each had some time and some privacy. I won't get into much detail, but damn, I needed that. A bit of (tame) conversation:
(10:58:54 PM) PiC: I am such a perv
(10:59:22 PM) Bunny: No, not at all. Well, ok yes, but in a good way

Why can't my husband answer a simple yes/no question quickly? It just pisses me off sometimes. The other night, I was changing the bedding on my bed as Spousehole helped Boy clean up in the bathtub (Boy had thrown up all over my bed and himself). Standing at the linen closet, since I'm there anyway I asked "Honey, would you like a washcloth?" 15 seconds, silence. 30 seconds, nothing. 60 seconds, still nada. I sigh annoyedly (is that word?), close the linen closet door and return to my bedroom with the clean linens. Finally, I hear "Yeah Hon, that would helpful." He does that all the time. Like it takes a great deal of thought before he can answer a simple question. Others that have drawn this same extended silence before answering: "Do you have my car keys?" "Would you like some iced tea with dinner?" "I'm getting ice cream. Want some?" After waiting a bit, I usually just walk away. Then he gets huffy because I walked away before he could answer. It's like he's a computer that needs defragging or something. Can't access the needed information quickly.

I need a new pet. Someone to baby. My kids and my cats are sick of my babytalk and cooing. My daughter puts her finger on my lips and says "hush" when I babytalk her. The cats roll their eyes (I'm not kidding. They are the masters of the disdainful look. At 12, 9, and 9, they've heard it all and are no longer amused.) I really miss my dog. Perhaps a dog would be good. Or another rabbit. Dog would be better for the kids, they'd be too rough with a rabbit. And they want a dog BAD. They've been angling for one for quite some time. Just have to convince Spousehole. :)

Glad the boy is getting better. I bet he is too. That's really weird about Spousehole and the question/answer thing. That would drive me crazy as well.

My Other's family used to live about 45 mins from us and never came to visit. We always went to see them. They visit us just as much now living out of state as they did when we lived down the highway.

Ok - I would not have reported you to the Mommy police for feeding your kid ice cream at 6:30 in the morning. But you went and ruined it by even OWNING any SOY ice cream. You can expect the call for your statement soon.

My hubs does the same thing - why is everything more complicated when you are dealing with a man?

Trueself said...

W does the same thing with questions, only with the added "Huh?" when first asked leading me to repeat the question still to get no answer until so long has passed that sometimes I don't even know what he's talking about by the time he answers because I've moved far beyond it by then.
How's that for a run on sentence? I'd go back and fix it, but I'm lazy. Sorry.

Good Wednesday afternoon Bunny,

Sorry that Boy still is not 100% back to feeling better. I will not alert the Mommy Police - they have more serious matters to deal with, like properly parenting Lindsay Lohan to keep her out of rehab...

Spousehole is strange. What can I say ? That would drive me mad, having to wait for an answer...

I.M. sex - yeah, sometimes it is a releif to come hard, come a lot, and come several times... Even if it does involve sore nipples the day afterwards :)

Vixen said...

You are *TOTALLY* rocking those glasses ;)

Well....yay for PiC and boo on Spousehole...that would very much annoy me to not be answered.

Glad to hear the boy is doing better.

HA! I win...lol I have been away from "home" for 19 years and my mother has visited me all of TWICE!! LOL Yes, twice! LOL Of course...it's probably best that way...hehe

I think that question ting is jsut a man thing. My husband does the same thing. I used to ask for at least some acknowledgment...but now....fuck it!! lol

Prettylyf said...

Glad to read boy is getting better and that your mum came down to babysit during your appointment.

All the adult in your life are transfixed with power and authority! That is why I figure my folks don't visit... they seem to want to be in charge and not be assholes at the same time. And, the only place they can do that is their house... if they come over the only way they can be in charge is if they're assholes.

I find it is getting easier with my father, because I have learned how to give him something to be right about, and that pretty much appeases his senses. My mother on the other hand...still no clue, but I am working on it.

And, nice shades C;)

You've solved a mystery. Someone quite rich once gave me a pair of those many years ago.

I didn't realise they must have got them free from the optometrist, I assumed they were high fashion.

I've worn them ever since. HHNT.

rob said...

PS they look better on you.

So what's keeping you from just showing up home with a dog?
