So, I Have A Story For You....

You may have noticed that I haven't been blogging that much lately. You know I am always complaining about being busy. The funny thing is, I don't feel like I get any of the stuff I want to do done. My days are spent cleaning a house that NEVER looks clean, folding the same blankets 12 times a day, doing laundry, cooking and chasing kids. Doesn't sound that fun does it? Well, it isn't that bad. Anyhoo....here is the real reason I haven't been blogging. My schedule has been messed up. Here is why..... Jake started working out in the mornings. That in itself doesn't really effect me too much. He gets up at 5:30ish (A.M.) and goes to the gym. He works out for 45 minutes or so and then comes come to take a shower. He has been meeting some guys from work at the gym to work out with. After a few days of this Jake comes home and he says, "Do you know what so-n-so (a workout buddy's wife) does for so-n-so (the workout guy)? At this point I am waiting just to hear just how wonderful this other man's wife is....and my husband ADDS this: I think it is sooo sweet!" What???? Jake has really NEVER called anything sweet for as long as I've know him! So I am continue to wait to hear what he has to say for himself. He goes on and tells me that his friend's wife gets out of bed and makes him a breakfast while he is at the gym. So when he gets home he can eat her wonderful breakfast!!! Can you believe it? I am outraged. He was trying to manipulate ME. I keep hearing over and over...."I think it is sweet". Now what can I do? I've made him breakfast the last two mornings. He still hasn't told me I am sweet but oh well. Either way, I used to blog in the mornings. That has always been my time to get up and do my thing. Jake has always liked cereal. He eats a lot of it. And he is worried about his health (weight, cholesterol, etc....) and most breakfast food is so unhealthy (pancakes!!! yikes, fried eggs, bacon, sausage, butter.....my heart is hurting just thinking about it). I thought I was doing him a favor by NOT making him breakfast. I thought that was sweet of me. But apparently I was wrong. So, that is my story. If I don't blog enough blame that other guys wife for being so sweet.

BTW....just a little disclaimer - I happen to like the other guy's wife and she is very nice and probably very sweet (I don't know her that well). So, no harm is meant towards her by this blog entry.

Tell Jake that a bowl of cereal is just fine. You can make him a big breakfast on Saturdays. It might be healthier and I enjoy reading your blog.

I really like pancakes, fried eggs and bacon all with butter for breakfast what's so wrong with that?

Don't get any ideas Tim, It isn't going to happen.

I am with Stephanie. Saturday is the only possibility for hot breakfast in this house. Unless of course we have it for dinner :)

And just a thought...when was the last time Jake made you breakfast? You are carrying his third child and chasing after the first two. Just curious

I wasn't trying to get her to make me breakfast. I thought it was a nice thing. I'm happy with with my Cheerios

Well I was actually thinking the same thing. I would love anything you make me and to be honest I don't need anything. I just love unique homemade pieces. But if I would have to choose I would have to say maybe a vase? or a nice bowl? But I haven't had much time to think about it either. And your very welcome, I know that selling that first piece is the hardest and I love you so it means even more to me, plus I couldn't let anyone else take that home... :)
