My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

The husband woke me this morning at 5am. Usually, the conversation goes something like this...

WxMan: "Hey, Babe?? Honey?? You up??"

Me: "Nnnnnmmmmf??"

WxMan: "Hey - sorry to wake you, but could you take a look at something?"

Me: "Seriously?? Uh... I guess..." ::opens one eye - tries to focus::

WxMan: ::turning on light:: "Does this shirt go with these pants??"

Me: ::wincing away from the light:: "Dude, it's a blue shirt and khaki pants..."

WxMan: "Yeah - do they go together??"

Me: "It's a blue shirt and khaki pants - of course it goes..." ::closes eye::

WxMan: "Are you sure?? I mean..."

Me: "YES. It goes. And believe me, at 5am nobody cares except for your loving and patient wife. You have 90% of the population beat already just by having clothes ON. You look fine..."

WxMan: "Okay, thanks." ::turns off light (thank God):: Love ya."

Me: "Nnnnnmmmmf"


Fast forward to this morning...

WxMan: ::quietly:: Hey Babe?? Happy Valentine's Day - I got you a card... Love you. See you tonight."

Me: "MMmmmm??? Oh! Love you too. Have a good day."


Here's hoping your Valentine's day is off to a good start as well... Gotta love it.

Don't send a lame Valentine's Day eCard. Try JibJab Sendables!

Maybe we should take some lessons! You think?
