A cut above

Hubs + pocket knife + work = trip to the doc + stiches

I can already tell he's gonna milk it for all it's worth!

I know you're curious

Most of the blogs I read are written by some very fabulous mama's. Oh yes, I'm talking about you, and you, and you. At our age, and being married as long as we have, Jay and I get a lot of questions about what we do with our time since we don't have kids. It's like everyone thinks we should have these crazy, exciting lives.

It always makes me laugh when Mama Hen and I talk and she asks what we're going to do over the weekend. My usual answer is pretty much nothing and then she goes into this long deal about how we don't have kids and she just can't believe we don't go out and do stuff. Of course, when I ask her what she thinks we should be doing, she can't come up with anything. That's when I say EXACTLY.

So in case any of you wonder what you'd most likely be doing if you didn't have kids - this is a typical Friday night (except we don't normally take a picture). I get home from work and immediately put on my pajamas. And yes, they're flannel and plaid. Then I get the contacts out and the glasses on. My next order of business is to wait for Hubs to call and tell me he's on his way so we can talk about what he's gonna pick up and bring home for supper. Once he's home, we eat, watch TV or a movie and then I head off to bed to read.

And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Twice as "SNICE"

It's hard to believe, but I'm on my second snow/ice (aka SNICE) day. I went to bed Sunday night in Alabama but it appears I've woken up the past two mornings up North! Of course it only appears that way. All I have to do is turn on the TV and see all-day coverage of how we're in a "state of emergency" when we have a couple of inches of snow and I know I'm right where I'm supposed to be.

And if there was even a smidgen of doubt left after that, I just needed to keep the TV on or check Facebook and check out the 1,893,548 times I heard or read War Eagle or Roll Ducks Roll. Don't get me wrong. I'm proud of our Auburn Tigers and their National Championship win. I even sported some Auburn sweatpants yesterday (a gift from a friend for Christmas).

(That gasp you just heard was my Mama.) I'm just not a football fan. I can only devote so much brain power and excitement to sports and my beloved Yankees got it all.

So, it's another day at home. Hubs went on into work. I think the excitement of driving his work truck with chains on the tires was just too much. I'm choosing to believe that over the possibility that he didn't want to hang out with me for one more day. Surely it's not because I made him watch Steel Magnolias, hmmm?

I'm gonna get in the kitchen in a few minutes and see what I can cook good for supper the rest of the week with things I already have in the freezer and/or pantry. It's a challenge from Leanna over at Thoughts and Whatnots. Who knows? This might be my year for cooking!
