I'm a romantic curmudgeon.

I had to laugh. Ms.D & I have an "office" upstairs with a desk and desktop PC for each of us, and she has her laptop downstairs. Any given lazy time (which is often) will find one of us on a PC and the other stretched out on the sofa watching Tv. There are usually pajamas or bathrobes involved.

We're not styling, but we're happy! I'm glad you guys are, too.

To be honest Anne, I'd already made the tacit assumption that Plosh was your husband. How wrong can I be?

Adrian: yes, he's my husband. We've been married for 6 years. He was just kidding around, along the lines of "if I had to do it all over again ..."

Dreadmouse: Sounds like you're household is much like mine. Lucky us.

Don't knock the hole-y flannel jammies. In some circumstances, they're sexier than the Victoria's Secret stuff.

And Plosh probably doesn't mind the spit. If the spit is from your own kids, you develop some type of an immunity to it.

Yeah, I'm immune spit up when it's on my wife.

"I'm a romantic curmudgeon."
Romantic curmudgeons are my favorite!


Of course we're married, silly.

You didn't think I'd inflict my slobby self on him all these years without the protection of a marriage license, eh?

about me

  • It is good to be the Empress
    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
