Idiotic Rambling From My Brain

I was reading my friend Heather's blog (You know Heather, of Heathersister fame) and she had a button for a quiz on Twilight. Now I don't think I would have ever read these books if it wasn't for these two sisters. They are so much like my sister and me, and they are COMPLETELY obsessed with anything Twilight, so I decided to give it a try.

Now I'm completely obsessed!!!! (But it never really takes much) I have read the first two and I am currently reading the 3rd. When I bought the 3rd book, I noticed that they had t-shirts at the bookstore. I got myself one, and squeezed my adult size body(read DD's) into a shirt made for a teenager. Let's just say that Edward and Bella's heads might be a little wider than they should be, but my friend, who always tells me the truth, said it looked good. (Thank GOD I've lost 23lbs. so far)

So, you can go ahead and thank them, but I'm not quite sure Matt will.

Since I was 1/2 way through the first book, I have been dogging him about being romantic. I miss the early days when you just couldn't wait to see each other. When every thought you had was about the other person. I miss the romance!

Here are some of the conversations that Matt and I have had over text or in person about this topic;

Me (over text): DAMN! Why can't you be a vampire??!!

Matt: All the times you tell me I suck, I thought I was! LOL!!

Me: But not in a good way!


Me (on the couch reading) : "You know, vampires don't have beards! " (I HATE Matt's beard)

Matt (on the computer) : "They don't? Why not?"

Me: "Because they're dead, they don't grow hair!"

Matt: "What if they had a beard when they were changed?"

Me: "They shaved it off as soon as they were vampires, because vampires are cool and beards aren't!"


So because I've been badgering him, he has acknowledged my need for romance. But there are three small problems.

1) He is working A LOT and doesn't know where to start.

2) We have two daughters who can suck the romance out of even Romeo and Juliet.

3) I truly think he is only humoring me because I am badgering him. (But that might actually be my own emotionally stunted views on relationships)

But the biggest problem is me. I always have the worst timing on my neediness. What is this poor man suppose to do? He works 12-16 hrs a day on a very physical job and he is exhausted when he gets home. He's also exhausted because of me, I require a lot of attention, I always have. I have exhausted my family and friends with my constant need for attention.

I love Matt very much, and I need to cut him some slack because I know that he's trying his best to appease his tyrant of a wife. (please don't hate Matt or feel bad for me, I do it to myself)

P.S. I honestly didn't think this post was going to turn out like this, I just started writing and this is what came out. I was originally going to post about the Twilight quiz I took and what character I turned out to be. (I put the results on my side bar) Now I have to think of a new title for this post!

Aww, shucks, I think I love you.

How did you put the book down long enough to write this? Did you feed your kids today?

Did you feel like your heart was breaking during New Moon?

Who are you going to the movie with on Friday? If you need to talk about it, email me Friday night.

When the trailer first came out, I watched it like 20 times a day (yes, sad, I know). I think the movie will be good. No, it will be great. We shall see. I will let you know.

I am going with Heather (of course) and my girl, Danielle, a friend of hers, some friends of Heather's, and a daughter of one of my lunch lady friends. Should be a fun night.

Before there was a Dr Phil on TV, there was this little old lady that gave advise to those couples that got so caught up in the day-to-day of life to take time to...enjoy the roses - you may remember Dr. Ruth.

Wifey - you may have rambled in this entry - but those ramblings were far from idiotic. You and Matt are very talented - and you are so very hard on yourself.

Beards are cool. Just ask my husband.

I haven't read these books.
I don't know if I want to do or not. Do I want to start telling people to shave off their beards and be a vampire? Do I want to be addicted to another series of great books? I'll think about it.
Very entertaining post!! xx

It's not in the nature of guys to remain romantic. Every so often they'll remember and do something really sweet and romantic, but for the most part - once they're comfortable in a relationship/marriage - they don't seem to think they need to bother. I think they take it for granted that because they're still with you then you must know they love you.

At least, that's how it seems to me... And I've heard the same sort of thing said by some other women too.
