I Married the Perfect Man for Me

Published by on

It’s Saturday, 6 p.m. I am at my desk, still in my pjs and terry robe (old awful one that I should throw away). Mostly I am reading blogs, doing an itsy-bitsy amount of work (wrote a cloth diapering glossary that was supposed to be done in 2000).

My husband comes home from work (about 35 hours of overtime this week and he is really tired) and hollers, “hello”. FRICK … I am filled with guilt – I haven’t even brushed my teeth! YUCK. I have wasted an entire day (the kids are gone to grandmas – thank you mom). I run upstairs, “I haven’t been down there ALL day!” I say and he smiles. “Honest, I spent most of the afternoon in bed” (this is true, I did). He laughs hard and I chuckle.

AHHH … what a great life!

Oh I so get this! There are so manyt times when everything is in shambles, and I’m just sitting here on this computer looking for something much more interesting to do…and then my husband walks in the door. I usually have a few seconds to quickly snap close the laptop and pretend like I’ve been cleaning.

Say, how did you create your own masthead with the picture. It looks awesome!

Undomestic, I am happy I am not the only one!

I actually had a friend (Heather) of http://www.ohmystinkinheck.com make the blog for me. But, you just have to find out what the header image size is for you blog template and then create a file the same size and save it as the same name and then upload to your blog.

Blogger is a bit different and I find not as easy to use as other blog software.

My dear Mommyknows,
It’s your pal Crabmommy here. I like this post. As you know, I too spend a lot of time in robes at computers even while offspring is elsewhere and hubby working hard to bring home my apple-smoked bacon. Guilt ravages me…but like you I have a great husband who is perhaps so neglected he doens’t know how else life could be. I had a good chuckle on your mention of “that” moment when one snaps shut computer and pretends to be cleaning. Ha! How well I know that charade!

Hey Crabmommy,

Glad you came by … and glad to know I not the only lazy sod lying about neglecting husband and offspring.
