One Chicago mom's attempt to keep an accurate log so her kids will have something helpful to show the therapists.
I'm with Joe....shows like that are cheaper to watch and don't give my wife of 31 blissful years ideas. She likes to watch those home shows that make installing a new bathroom easy. "Look honey, that's easy, you could do that." Sureeeee, no problem. I'll have it done in one weekend. Or tiling made easy.....she gazes at the TV....and I can tell what's she's thinking. "Yes, I'll just go to Menards, pick out some tile for the kitchen backsplash and just glue it up and it'll stay, no problem". Ask Joe for me when it's on again?MBF
Wait. Husbands can actually be asked to install and fix things???? Why didn't I get this memo??
My 9 year old daugter is obsessed with salt water crocodiles- too bad I live on the East Coast or we could have set them up on a crocodile documentary date.
Joe lets the kids watch these shows, too, and I just KNOW we're going to have a hard time getting them in the lake this summer! Thanks for reading & commenting!
Winter does this to me too. It's better living in NM because we don't have as many non sunny days. That is my favorite part about living here. I have less blah, life is so blah, I want to do something, but everything seems too hard kind of days.Also, crocodiles are scary. When we went to a reptile zoo in South Africa one sign said "We are not responsible for small children. They could be eaten." It wasn't a joke. One town we visited on the coast was fenced in. They had to bury the fence three feet deep otherwise the crocodiles would dig under it and come to town to eat people and their pets. Hippos are bad too. I was scared the entire time.
I am way too much of a 'fraidy cat to ever go somwhere with animals that can eat me. Call me a city girl, but an African Safari is not my cup of tea.
Gads! Where is Mr Snuffleupagus to stomp that stompee!?
Good eye, Andrea! Only you would call out that Stompee (and I'm not sure if it's supposed to be a croc, a lizard, or a dinosaur).
I have to tell you how much I loved this piece. The winter blahs are downright evil. So evil that they should probably be eaten by a crocodile, (I hear that they're into that sorta stuff). Anyway, God Bless the happy lamps in our life for sure! If mine ever gets over his man-cold, I very much look forward to breathing the same air as him again. It is crazy how they forget that were ladies though, right?...
Happy lamps are wonderful!Joe seems to forget that I'm a girl except during specific, er, evening activities. heh heh.
My refrigerator is warmer than it is outside, has a automatic happy light in it, and provides safety from crocodiles. It is the closest thing to Florida around here.SF
I'll be stopping by this afternoon, SF! Got Dove bars in there?
Love the line, "I sometimes wonder if Joe remembers I am a girl." Of course he does, he just wants to watch Crocodiles eating lions, Crocodiles eating boats and Crocodiles eating crocodiles, with his girl.And that end paragraph was so so lovely. :)
Secret here, even living in a warm state, we still get the winter blues; but take heart, each day the sun stays out a bit longer; spring is just around the corner!! What is it with men and nature shows like this? I'm sure hubby would probably be interested in a similar show with crocs :)betty
Joe's taste in television programming baffles me. I just want to watch Glee and Smash like normal theatre-loving geeks everywhere.
Just this past weekend I was telling my husband how I was in a "funk" and he reminded me that I get this way every winter. Looks like neither of us were made for the cold. Oh, and my husband would totally be watching the crocodile show, too!
These men. They do understand us, even as we question their taste in television programming.
I think you just need some exercise!
