Röbby’s Coming Home Tonight!

I am so excited to see my handsome hubby when he gets home from his camping trip with the guys.  I sure missed him while he was gone.  I hope he realizes that I don’t mind him going camping with his true friends.  He just sometimes chooses poorly when deciding who to spend time with.

I have such a busy day planned.  I will be going to the store to buy some delicious meatloaf and mashed potatoes along with their roasted veggie side dish.  I just love the ready made counter at the supermarket.  It makes my homemade meals so much easier. I will still have to work, work, work in the kitchen to heat it up in the microwave and put it on plates.

Of course I also need to exercise, and I have no idea when I will even have time to change out of my running clothes!  I am that busy!

Luckily this outfit is very comfy. Maybe I can just slip on some heels to dress it up a bit.

I know Röbert will want to see the kids right away, but they will be all over town playing with different friends.  I hope I can even remember where they are.  Oh well, I am sure he will want to go get them and he will figure it out eventually.  And Stefan can stay here to help me set the table, since Merlin isn’t home.

I can’t wait to see Röbert!


A Reunion of Friends

Do you have people in your life who just exhaust you?  I am not talking about the ones who are a little bit annoying, or the ones who just don’t know better.  I am talking about people who are sure they are better than you and lord it over you every single minute, even though you know that they are not better than you at all?  Those people?  Let me tell you about my weekend.

Stefan, Röbby’s best friend since forever, was in town last week for a meeting with some investors.  I am not really clear about what he does for a living, but it is entrepreneurialish and he makes a lot of money. He had to stay in a downtown hotel during the week and then moved over to one of our guest rooms on Friday.  Of course his wife, Kathy had to make a big effing deal about how important she is at work (adjunct faculty at a community college) and couldn’t make it until Saturday morning.  Who cares?  She is a pill.

Stefan is completely delightful and we had so much fun Friday night with some burgers on the grill and a little trip down memory lane with Röbby.  I had Röb’s mother send over some funny photos of the boys growing up and we just laughed and laughed.  I also found some videos that they had made as teenagers.  They thought they were going to join the cast of Jackass apparently.  I left them downstairs with those and a case of IPAs and went upstairs and watched chick flicks.  I don’t think Röbby made it up before 3 AM, but they had such fun.

Also, did I mention? Kinda hot.

It is amazing how damaging an unhappy woman can be to a happy get together…

Kathy showed up on Saturday morning in total “look at me” mode.  Oh look at the special and expensive hostess gift I bought you!  Aren’t I special, watching football with the men instead of hanging out with the other gal in the house?  Look how much I know about everything!

By dinner time I was DONE.  I had spent a lot of time picking up the side dishes from the catererers and it was not easy to get the Merlin to fold the napkins the way I wanted him to.  Hostessing, especially hostessing a someone like Kathy, is exhausting.  They were planning to  go and meet a couple of people from the PhD program she and Röb had been in together after dinner and I felt a lil’ my grain coming on.  Then I heard her outside (helping the guys cook the steaks, of course) asking Röbby if he had been in touch with Claire.

Rude bitch. Yes, that is what she wore to go out. "Look how much more casual I can be!"

What the heck?!  Röbert is happily married with a beautiful home and a beautiful wife and a beautiful daughter and two sons!  He even has a dog!  He is NOT thinking about his dreary old girlfriend.  I am sure Kathy talks to her all of the time and has to listen to her pining away for the “one who got away”, but that is not Röb’s problemo. Was Claire going to be in the group they were meeting later?  That I wanted to see.

Good bye my grain!  I ran upstairs and threw on some skinny jeans and a cute top I had in my closet and came down to join them.

You should have seen Röbert's and Stefan's faces when I came back down. You should also have seen Kathy's LOL. Game, set, match community college instructor!

The rest of the night was pretty dull until I got their fat friend Brad to do a few too many shots and twerk with Krystyn, who was at the bar with some of her friends.  Brad’s wife is also a real sourpuss, by the way.  Claire was not there after all (at some kind of dig thing in Spain or something) but I had forgotten how popular I was with the other guys in the PhD program.

I think Kathy was hoping Röbert would regret dropping out and taking a job in software sales to get married, but obviously he has a wonderful life.  I wonder why she is so bitter?





A Hairy Situation

I know I haven’t been posting much about Röbert lately.  Well, I have been very busy with the kiddos and my friends with all of the summertime activities and just hangin’ out.

There is another reason though.  Röbert has been looking a bit scruffy lately, and you all know that he is usually an extremely dapper and tidy guy.  I bought him a straw hat a few weeks ago and it inspired him to change up his look a bit, and it took a while for it to stop looking scruffy.  I think he looks amazing, but he always has looked pretty great to me.  He says he will keep the new look through our vacation and then decide.  What do you think?  Hot or Not?

Taaa Daaa!

Taaa Daaa!

Little Things

I feel like i can be honest with all of you here.  You know me pretty well now, and you know that I am married to the hottest, kindest, smartest and most faithful man in the world.  But ladies, do little things about your boys start to bug you every now and then?  Nothing big like he has gross breath or gets caught embezzling or anything, just tiny quirks that get on your nerves.  Lately, a couple of things about Röbert have been driving me nutty!

These shorts.  I mean jorts.  Hideous.  He is a cute guy.  Why Röbert, why?

I almost died the first time I saw him wearing these!

Likewise this shirt thing.  I have no idea where he bought it, but ladies, if you see him out in public in it could you please recoil in horror until he gets the idea?

Who designed this monstrosity?

Finally, his mother has been trying to foist off his favorite chair on us.  Röbert loves to watch sports in it when he is at her house and now she wants it disgracing mine.  I hope he realizes that we will not be watching sports over here!  We only watch high-minded PBS and BBC shows in my home!

Next he's be carting home her lampshade too.

I have just been feeling testy with him lately and I can’t put my finger on why.

Ladies, what little things make you all bothered with your big boys?
