A month? A whole freakin' month? What the ___? Seriously. I can't believe it.

Okay, okay, on some level I can as I am just worn out, and after spending all day working on the computer, coming home and doing more computer work doesn't exactly appeal. And the Hub can have issues with me spending any time doing anything that he feels pulls my attention away from him ~~ computer, iPhone, reading, TV (unless he also wants to watch the same thing). Of course, if he wants to do these things and ignore me, then it's ok. Anyway, to keep the peace, I tend to keep away from those activities.

But I didn't mean to do it for a whole month.


Intimacy around here, of any sort, has been pretty hit-or-miss around here lately, with it mostly being "miss" (I would definitely prefer more "hits", especially of the spanking kind). Between his travel, general stresses and kid issues, just very hard to find the energy, even if there is the desire.

We don't do "sexting" but here's a recent text:

DH: I just landed safely
Me: Ok. Fish are fed, house is locked, everyone's in bed
DH: I know we did not have sex before I left feel free to use your toy or you probably using it right now
Me: Not in the mood

In retrospective, my response should have been a little nicer, maybe including a "thank you for thinking of my needs" sort of thing... But it was late and PMS tends to shut down the niceness center of my brain.


Our trip out to LA was really good, but definitely deserves a post of it's own. Just need to add that to the list


Work is work. Still in the old facility. At some point I'm sure they'll ask me to start coming into corp, but not yet. I've been told they've figured out which cubicle will be mine, but it's not ready for me yet. Really not looking forward to the changes.

Kids head back to school in less than a month. Still have to get the registration done for the oldest 2. Yeah, more expenses.

OC gets her braces off next month. MC gets assessed in November, so we'll have at least a few months when we won't have to make the trek to the orthodontist.

YC lost a tooth today.


The good summer TV shows have started (or are about to):

  • Eureka
  • Torchwood
  • Dr. Who
  • Monk
  • Psych
Primeval is about to end, darn. But Syfy has added a new show, Warehouse 13, that's looking pretty good. And Being Human, a new show, is about to start on BBC America.

MC and I tend to like the same shows, so we watch and then discuss.

Better Off Ted is a funny show on the regular networks. Even got DH to watch it. Well written, witty. I much prefer witty to slapstick and toilet humor.


Just finished reading "Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince." I was only halfway through when we went to see the movie. Can I just state that I was very disappointed in the movie. I understand having to leave bits out when you're translating a 600 page book for the screen, but to completely create, out of the blue, entire scenes? Really? This was necessary? I think not. Made it very difficult to watch the movie; not able to suspend disbelief until I got past the point I'd read. It was an okay movie, but so different from the book. I hope they do better with Deathly Hallows (which I am reading now).

Going to read "The Time Traveler's Wife" next, then decide if I want to see the movie. The trailers look good, but you never know.

Really want to see "The Ugly Truth". Was planning to go, by myself, this weekend. DH was supposed to still be traveling, so I could get away with it, but now he's coming home on Friday. And I honestly can't see him being willing to go see this with me. A) Not generally his type of movie; B) Gerard Butler is in it. DH has issues with me thinking Gerard Butler is attractive. He is, and I'm not the only person in the world who thinks so. And why it bothers DH so much, I don't know. It doesn't seem to bother him if I comment that I think someone else is attractive, just Gerard Butler. *sigh* And they say women are complex. So don't know when, or even if, I'll get out to see it.


So there's a wee bit of an update. Nothing exciting, but that's just the way it is right now.

This sounds familiar.
My wife has had "The Time Travlers Wife" for over a year, and has now decided to read it before deciding on going to the movie. If you can't get hubby to go to the Ugly Truth, call us up. You could tag along with the wife and I. I know its on her list for sure.

You haven't read the "Twilight" series of books have you? My wife is obsessed with that Sparkly Vampire. Her and my daughter are hooked. I need to warn DH before you start this series.......

Hi Alfro,
I've probably had the book for at least that long, too, and just haven't gotten around to reading it.
*So many books, so little time*
Thanks for the offer to tag along. If I still lived in the Northwest I might've taken you up on it. :)

Surprisingly, I haven't read any of the Twilight books nor seen the first movie. My older kids have read the books (I think most of my extended family has, including my mom). But I think I'd be comparing them in my mind to Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series of books ~~ very adult, full of vampires, were creatures, magic and such. Not sure I want to go read about teen vampires and werewolves. I may break down and do it one day, however. Never say never, especially when it comes to books :D

Thank you for visiting AND commenting. Both are very appreciated.

I found 'The Time Travellers Wife' to be a very very interesting concept and extremely well written. I hope you enjoy it and will be interested, if you go, in your view of how it translates on film.

Glad to see you're back. Dante talked me into blogging again too.

Ivan said...

New spanking blog.

Robin said...

Hi Mr. C,
Well, it's a month later and I still haven't gotten around to reading it. It's in my bag, goes everywhere with me...
I'll get to it and let you know what I think.

Robin said...

Hi Spanky,
I missed your blog and am so very glad that you are back. Also glad that Dante talked you into a public blog ~~ easier to follow :)

Robin said...

Thanks for letting me know about the blog. I will check it out.
