Husband on Strike!!!
It's just amazing the ridiculous things that people will do, I mean honestly, who has time for this? Doesn't he have a job or something else to worry about?
If I had to go on strike for everything that my hubby did that I didn't like....oh well, let's just say I would forever be on STRIKE!!!
Me: Honey take out the trash please!
Hubby: Ummm, just a minute!
30 minutes later........1 hour later........next morning.....
Me: Uhh you forgot to take out the trash!
Hubby: Well I can't read your mind can I?
LOL See??? That right there would be grounds for a strike. If only I wasn't afraid of heights and climbing up to the roof.
So apparently his main reason for the strike is the fact that there is no intimacy......LOL
Ok so now the WHOLE world knows that they are not being intimate, is that something I really want everyone knowing? Friends and family etc? What happened to the whole "marriage is sacred" thing, aren't these some of the things you don't go around publicizing? I just don't get it, either I'm old fashioned or just not NORMAL!!!!
But anyway, you go on over and read the story and then let me know what you make of it.
I am on my second cup of coffee and let's just say that there's going to be plenty more to follow today. I think I got about 1 hour sleep last night, if you count all the interruptions during that time.
Nicholas was up and restless all night long, this usually means he's getting sick. Oh boy, better get ready for it!!!
It's hard enough not feeling well but then when you don't get to sleep either, it all just makes it 100 x worse.
I sat up last night and watched "Walk the Line". I'm NOT a Johnny Cash and June Carter fan, BUT being that Reese Witherspoon is my favorite actress, I couldn't let this one pass by. I have to say that I really enjoyed the movie, I learnt a lot about Johnny Cash which I honestly did not know before. Maybe I was just "country music ignorant"?
Watch the movie if you get a chance, it's actually really good!!!
I'm supposed to be taking it easy today because I'm not feeling 100%, I really feel that I'm coming down with something, and this weather constantly changing is not helping.
But being that it's payday, it means paying bills, getting groceries, running to the bank, etc etc etc. You know what I mean!!!
Anyway, it's friday and that means another "Remember When???". So here it goes:
I have so many stories and so many funny memories, so it's hard at times to pick one. But this one is engraved in our minds and we still laugh about it to this day.
So imagine, it's 1980 or around there. We are living in Portugal in Povoa de Santa Iria.
It's New Years Eve and for some reason there is this belief or whatever it is......that when the clock strikes midnight, you should take a bowl of water and throw the water out of the window for good luck.
Yes it's ridiculous and I have no idea where that came from. My dad gets a bowl and fills it with water and walks over to the window. He sets it on the shelf next to it, and walks away towards the table that is filled with food. See, we're Portuguese and any occasion is an excuse to eat and eat and eat some more.
Anyway, we have a great time and it's now a few minutes to midnight, dad gets up and walks over to the window. We're all just standing there watching him, and I have to say at the time I was like 7 or 8 years old so I'm wondering what the heck is going on.
We start the countdown and dad is getting excited to throw the water out......we get down to the last second and he reaches over and grabs the bowl and dumps it. Nothing wrong right????
WRONG...in his rush to dump the water out he reached over and grabbed a bowl of oranges LOL
So there you have it, another crazy story!!! I'm sure I'll have more next friday :)
