Truthful Tuesdays 

Good Morning Everyone

This week is off to a slow start. On the weekend I came down with the dreaded man cold! Sunday night it hit me.  I muddled through yesterday but basically just bounced from couch to couch while providing minimal care to my children before and after school. At one point Benny (7) read me a story while I convinced Jack(8) to tuck me in and cuddle me. I guess it’s not quite a man cold because I did still feed, clothe and provide education and transportation for them. Speaking  of men let’s pop back a day or two…..I have a story I’d like to share, as to why my husband is not in the picture.

I had to post the second because benny looks so cute! 

1. If you’re feeling prudish this is time to tune out

2.yes this story was husband approved to be told.

So it’s a Saturday night, the sun has set, the children have gone to bed. Husband needs to stay up until midnight for a work whatchamat thingamujig. So I think to myself hmmmmm….. what could we do for a couple hours…..whaaaattt coouuulllddd weee dooo? Well it just so happens I bought a new bra, it’s a sweet little white lace thing, soft so it won’t hurt my skin, I have hypersensitive skin, I know, sexy right?! So I put it on and I locate matching bottoms, also very pretty. For a twist I put on husbands giant fluffy soft navy bathrobe. This part is embarassing, but truthful. I stand in front of the mirror and practice  a couple times, just to see what I look like, which way to stand and make my tummy fat look less ‘tummy fat’. You’ve done it right?! Gosh I hope you’ve done it! I touch up a bit, I’m thinking I look pretty. I’ve lost 7.5 pounds! I must look pretty.  I walk downstairs, he’s at the computer in the kitchen, I wet my lips, and walk in.  I make a little small talk, and then, bravely 

Me: “what would you like to do this evening?”Slowly drop robe open in what I hope is sexy fashion. 

Him: “I don’t know whatch a movie” hmmmmm…..apparently not sexy, or even… noticeable, move closer. 

Me: maybe if I spell it out “I bought a new bra, it’s lacey” can I be more obvious?

Him: looks! He’s looking!!! “it’s nice.”looks away (now suspecting he’s a tool and doesn’t understand)

Me: there’s something wrong with him.  ” I bought a new bra and am wearing cute matching bottoms in our kitchen.” 

Him. “I know baby, it’s super nice. Good pick!” (He has brain damage, it’s all the jet fumes, they finally got him) 

Me: in my least sexy voice probably half shouting “I am almost naked in our kitchen flashing you and trying to hold in my fat in a sexy way” again try the ‘sexy pose’ which honestly probably just looks like small convulsion.  

Him ” you don’t have to do that baby, you’re beautiful!!…….What kind of movie are you thinking.”

And then I caught a man cold. Oh Karma, how did I smite you so? 

We have since had multiple conversations about what went wrong here. He says he was “tired” and I said I’m tired a lot too but I’ll sleep when I’m dead. There have been some payback incidents, of which a lady would never speak, and he must now practice the mantra ” I’m the gas, you’re the brakes!” Over and over and over…

How was your day? Anyone else want to share embarrassing incidents? I also walked around with toothpaste on my face for an hour this morning. I’m due some goodness right about now. 

Love K

    I feel like I’m reading about something that happened in my house. I swear this has happened to me almost word for word. You are not alone! And as a mom, and being tired, sometimes it’s just so hard to pull it all together and put it out there. I’ve stopped trying. 🙁 and I don’t like that.

      I don’t know if it’s that we should stop trying. I think during this phase of our lives maybe folding the laundry is more foreplay than actual foreplay. You should try again. How about a date night?

    I have a similar story where my husband was playing online poker (this was back in 2006) and I was feeling neglected and I got the “I’m in the middle of a tournament what do you expect me to do?”
    It was pretty cold in our house for a few days after that! 😉

    I better post this anonymously! Once, only like a year or two into our relationship (before we were married), I slipped him the tongue when we were kissing. He recoiled back in a mix or genuine shock, surprise, and disgust. Him – “What the hell are you doing??!” Me – “umm, French kiss? It’s a thing. That people do.” Him – “Oh yeah. I forgot. Huh, that’s weird.”

    He had actually forgotten that that was a thing to do. We certainly USED to kiss like that, but it had been a while. And when you think about it, I guess it is a weird and slightly gross thing to be socially acceptable. So yeah, my romantic life is spicy! Now, I only get that a few times a year, if he’s had Scotch and a cigar usually. But he makes up in other ways 😉
