Notes from a wife...

Marriage is all about trials and tribulations.
This is what i've learned.
1. When the hubby asked me to tivo the world series he didn't mean the poker world series.


2. When travelling by air...always pack your bag to bring on the plane...because hubby will never pay to have it checked through.


3.If in fact he has to pay to have your bag checked because the size is to big for carry-on, then know that shopping while on vacation is out.


4. If you indeed cooked a lovely meal and dessert, which the hubby just loved...then know...that in fact he does know that you can cook...and will want you to do this on a regular basis.


5.If you carry your camera around everywhere with you...then beware that hubby will think that you are taking photo's of the kids just for blogging purposes and not for the family photo album.


6. If this happens....then by all means ...go and buy a photo album and spend your time filling it up.










7. When hubby asks you what you did today...don't say "nothing".



8. Don't have your Anthro shopping bags laying around if you told your hubby that you weren't feeling well and needed a day to relax.



9. never tell your hubby that your period is really late even though he's had the clippity clip.

10. It is okay to end an argument by saying....Well...i guess i'll just go to Paris with my friends instead...
and you stay home with the kids.

11. When the hubby says " the gym called today and they are wondering why you haven't been in".......
he didn't mean literally....so don't really call them back......take it as a note...that it really is time to
head back to the gym.

Kasey, Kasey, Kasey... I do not like to get up in the morning at all, especially as early as I am this morning.... however, if it is for nothing else then to see your riot of a post then YES, I will get up early because your blog post & humor is WORTHY of doing so. I hope your Tuesday is full of laughter and joy.

PamperingBeki said...

Adorable!

Did you know you have a crazy ability to be the first commenter on every blog on the internets?

I can't tell you how many times I go to leave a comment on a random blog and see "Kasey" as the very first commenter. You have talent, girl.

Flower Patch Farmgirl said...

Do you ever feel like if more people could see the humor in marriage there wouldn't be so many divorce court tv shows?

I figure if we can find just one thing to laugh about every day, we'll be alright.

Tonia Hobbs said...

I had to laugh at these! I can so relate!

Sunshine said...

Primitiques 'n Poetry said...

Great stuff. My best friend in 5th grade told me all about #7. She told me to at least say I was reading a book. Never admit to doing nothing. Wasn't she wise for a 5th grader? ~Mindy

Rachel said...

Thank you Kasey, I needed that! My husband and I have been in a rut lately...well, our relationship is in a rut....we're just trying to get out of it, so I appreciate your humor and, yes, I do believe it is all true!!!

Kristin said...

Ah ha ha. Especially love the bit about letting out the secret that you CAN cook. I made that mistake. Ah ha

The Flying Bee said...

so funny...LOVE #7.

Laura said...

yeah
love it all

can I add that when you go to a party WITH your kids, and hubby disappears while you keep the children from jumping in the pool because it is NOT a pool party and they dont know how to swim, and you spot hubby from across the room with a margarita in his hand and no drink for you...

oh
wait
I have no where to go with this...just needed to get this off my chest..ya know...as if THIS would ever happen to ME...(at a Halloween party...just sayin....)

foggogs said...

OK how did you get him to pose for a blog photo or was this under the photo album pretense? Enjoyed the post!

Tiffany said...

You are great, Kasey. Love this. So fun. You always put a smile on my face with your posts! Thank you.

Sarah said...

LOL!

Lynn said...

Your husband sounds so much like mine...I really have gotten the hang of cooking finally. Nothing cheers my sweet husband up like pot roast with all the trimmings...I haven't commented before but i enjoy your blog very much. I have three kids too and am always obsessing over similar issues. I went to anthro just to look at the firewood one day after you wrote about it but alas, they didn't have it in Seattle.
hey I love your music too! take care,
Lynn

Jerri said...

Kasey please tell me that #11 really did NOT happen because if sweet hubby said that to me, I'd go and eat another piece of Halloween candy just because I can! ha ha

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

Oh man... I hope he didn't really tell you the gym called. That's grounds for a smack bottom!
