Just Another Night

First a little background...
Hubby wasn’t feeling well yesterday. He had woken up about 1am and hadn’t fell back asleep all day, so when I came home from work the plan was for him to fall asleep early so he could try and get some rest.

Around 7pm I turned on the air so he could have sound to drown out any noise we might make in the house and fresh air to keep him asleep, I kept Blue out of the room because she likes to sleep on top of his legs or right next to his legs for some reason.

I even stayed out of our room all night so he wouldn’t have to hear his wife typing away on instant messenger with Desert Rat, flipping through channels all night or snoring directly in his ear (yes I snore…and loud)

Sidenote: Apparently it worked because I just spoke to him and he said it was the best sleep he’s had in months, BOO. Separate bedrooms here we come.
Ok enough about my “bedroom issues”

So there I was last night, all alone.

While I tried to get comfortable in unfamiliar territory (the living room) it was kind of lonely. There was no Hubby to fight over bed space with, there wasn’t a comfy bed to sleep in, no huge TV with satellite to watch. I even left a man behind… (my laptop) so no Internet for me.

At first I didn’t know what to do with myself, I literally sat in the center of the couch wondering what to do to keep me occupied. The house was quiet. Cindyjo was out shopping with my Momma and Joshmo was in her room ignoring me or “studying” …whatever.

After a few minutes of silence, sitting around and staring, I did manage to come up with a few things to keep me busy…

I called my niece & nephew and had them tell me
how much they love and miss me.
I texted and harassed my oldest God-Son while he was trying to work.
I bothered the dogs, stole their jerky treats and toys
and forced them to play with me.
I "meowed" at the stray cats on the fence and had a full conversation
I played hopscotch in the kitchen
I tried different "lighting options" all around my house
I fooled around with my phone and sent pictures like this to my children:


Finally after what seemed like an eternity I was saved.

My girl came home! (no silly not Himbo, although we did hang out the other night and it was so fun…more to come on that tomorrow)

I held my Momma hostage in the living room and forced her to watch the last Season of Six Feet Under with me while I ate yummy pineapple & orange sorbet and cuddled with the doggies. Then I made Cindyjo paint my nails and rub out a knot in my shoulder!

I ended up passing out from my busy night with the TV blaring, Blue under my leg, and jerky treat in my hand (wait that sounds dirty)
Good Times!

You're much cooler than my mom, that's for sure. I would have never pretended to be studying in my room. Haha.

You're a sweet wife, making sure your husband had a nice, quiet comfy room to rest in!

"jerky treat in my hand" hilarious! :)

And that picture made me LOL!

SheBloggs said...

That sounded like good times for sure! And Six Feet Under was MY SHOW back when it was on. Why in the hell did they get rid of it! It had another 10 years!

Save some pineapple/orange sorbet for meeeeeee. <3

You are a much nice wife that I would ever be. I would have set booby traps to go off at staggered times through out the night. If I ever do get married, I think I will make an excellent divorcee.
I love that you spent most of the night annoying other people. Your my kinda gal honey.

Sounds like you had fun. Don't take the separate bedroom. Fighting over the covers is fun.

I was all alone last weekend and couldn't figure out what I was going to do for two days to keep myself occupied. Thank goodness for junk food and Lifetime movies.
