How to Piss Me Off
Mood:  irritated
Topic: Wedded Bliss

I just sat down after putting one child down for a nap and the other child down for 'quiet time', anxious to enjoy the episode of '24' that my trusty Tivo recorded for me last night. Only to find out that my husband, whose name henceforth is SHITHEAD, cancelled the recording so that he could record some piece of crap (read: soft core porn) Cinemax movie. I am PISSED.

I think a second Tivo unit ALL MY OWN is in order. I mean, someone has to pay for this tragedy!

Hi, We're Your New Neighbors - The Forrest Gumps
Mood:  energetic
Topic: Wedded Bliss
Almost 3 years ago, I bought Mike a ping pong table for his birthday. It was an awesome, inspired gift and he LOVED it. Don't you just love it when you think of THE perfect gift for someone? Isn't that the best feeling? That excitement you feel waiting to give it to them and knowing you've really hit a home run in the gift department - that's awesome.

So it was with the ping pong table. Unfortunately there was the little logistical problem of having NO DAMN PLACE TO PUT THE THING. So it sat in the garage of our former house, unassembled and gathering dust. Fast forward to our fabulous new home with its GINORMOUS covered patio. The ping pong table finally found a home.

Since the minute that thing was assembled, we have been ping pong playing FREAKS. We play every evening. And if something happens that prevents us from playing, we talk about how much we miss it and how soon we can play again. You could say we're a teensy bit obsessed with the ping pong.

And y'all? I am GOOD. Really! And the best thing is, Mike and I are very evenly matched. I can and do beat him almost as often as he beats me. And the coolest thing? You can't even believe how much closer this has made us. We've bonded over ping pong in a way that 10+ years of togetherness hadn't achieved before. Certainly our attempts to play golf together hadn't fostered this kind of camaraderie - possibly because if you ranked our respective golf skills, he would be somewhere near "DAMN GOOD" and I would be closer to "SUCKS ASS AND HAS A BAD ATTITUDE".

A few nights ago, as we enjoyed our "between games wine/cocktail", Mike said, "Our neighbors must think Forrest Gump moved in here". Except Forrest probably wouldn't keep yelling at his kids to QUIT THROWING ROCKS! and to LEAVE THAT DOG ALONE!

A note to my husband
Mood:  d'oh
Topic: Wedded Bliss
Dear Mike,

Those night-time diapers I mentioned last night to the left of the changing table? Those were in the big package marked "Huggies Overnights". The thing I found on Nicklaus this morning? A swim diaper. FYI - swim diapers don't actually absorb anything - they're made so that the liquid (ideally from a pool or a lake or the ocean) passes through them without making them all bulky and water-logged...for swimming purposes.

On the plus side, I think Nicklaus learned to do the breast-stroke in the giant pool of urine that was his crib.

Love and kisses,
Cathy
