Twilight Tuesday

On Wednesday last week, I had the kids for a sleep over because their parents both had to work, and they didn’t have school, again. Parent Teacher interviews I think.

So to keep them occupied I let them decorate the downstairs “fun” tree. All by themselves. That’s a huge step for me, being the control freak that I am. They actually did a pretty good job, and by the time it came to putting the fun ornaments on they were all into it.

I have lots of different fun ornaments ranging from Gingerbread Men to Coffee to Underwear. The kids favourites are the Simpsons ornaments and the Christmas Story leg lamp and talking crate.

This year for our yearly ornament I got the Twilight one from Hallmark. *insert squee* It has Edward and Bella, and while it doesn’t really look like them, you can still tell who it is.

All Austin kept saying was how he didn’t want to hang it himself because he hates Edward and thinks he’s ugly. While I admit the ornament isn’t very attractive, (he looks constipated and she looks Jewish) I still had to get it, just because of what it was. I wish there were a different Twilight themed one, like maybe the Cullen crest or a book or something. Really anything that doesn’t have Bella on it would be great.

But other than the real Edward, what could be better than having him hanging on your tree for Christmas?


It Needs to Be Fresh

I want to have an affair. With my husband.

Let’s face it, things can get a little, I guess you could say, predictable after this many years. I miss that feeling of something new, and exciting, and fresh, and unknown. We have a great relationship, don’t get me wrong, but comfortable, and stale, and predictable were never words I wanted to utter in the same sentence.

The thing is, how do you go about having an affair, with someone you live with and have been in a relationship with for over 14 years? Our date nights always end up the same, dinner out and a movie, or take out and a movie at home.

I want passion, and romance, and more passion! Surprise me, grab my hand and don’t let go, act like a horny teenager, kiss me like you mean it while we’re in public, no matter who’s watching.

So let’s try. Let’s try to keep it fresh, and exciting, and new. Let’s have an affair, with each other.

Twilight Tuesday

We. Are. Dorks. I freely admit it.

The other day, Twi-Whore and I were out shopping for stuff for her birthday party that I’m planning, when we went to Pier 1. We were browsing the dishes and things, when I peeked around a corner. Sitting against a shelf was a giant fork and spoon. I dragged her over and picked up the fork and yelled “Foooorrrrks!” She laughed, naturally, and I had said it was too bad that I didn’t have my camera.

Well guess who just so happened to throw her camera in her bag that morning? If you guessed Twi-Whore, you’d be right. So we stood there, in the middle of Pier 1, holding a giant fork, taking photos of ourselves.

I did mention that we’re dorks right?
