She Said: “Dear Diary”

December 13, 2009 by  

Picture 19Dear Diary –

My husband was a total boob yesterday. And, why — even though he NEVER seems to listen to me when I’m talking directly to him just 10 cm away  — does he hear me bitch*ing whispering about him to a friend, a whopping 10 feet away? Yep, got caught red handed. You know what, though? I really didn’t care.  Serves him right for being such a friggin meanie.

My annoyance with spouse began with his good ‘ole subtle jabs.  You know, the ones that consistently are spit out over like an 8 hour time span? In spouse’s own warped mind, spouse thinks that they are being non-confrontational by spacing said jabs out. And, when you don’t call ’em out on it (b/c you’re too focused on biting your damn tongue, repeating in your mind “let it go… let it go… let it go…”), spouse keeps schpewing them out.  Does spouse really think that each of those snide comments are not being registered? We’re just not ACKNOWLEDGING you; trying to be the bigger person.

“Oh, guess we’re gonna have to go to the grocery since there’s absolutely nothing besides water to drink in the house” (you try being a single working mom for 4 days; do you wanna go to the grocery store with 4 kids under 6? I don’t think so; you’ve been away!!). Or, the “Great kids, we’re gonna get our Xmas tree from a hardware store this year because that’s what mommy wants” (PS – Oh, love this story; it needs a home of its own on a future blog). Oh, and I love the “Well, since the laundry still hasn’t been put away, and the suitcases from our trip 2 weeks ago still haven’t been unpacked, I can’t find your underwear, boys”.

Then, I get the “stop being so defensive… I wasn’t aiming those at you… it’s all in your head“. Hmm… well, considering those aforementioned tasks all fall under my jurisdiction… is it really just all in my head?

It does, however, make me feel better that obnoxious jabs do not discriminate; they cross all races, religions, and genders. I know for a fact a handful of you have some stories we can all relate to. Schpew them out here!

(PS – Spell checker still can’t find ‘shpew’ or ‘shpewing’…; sorry in advance for the highly-probable misspelling).

  1. OMG! I was just yesterday seriously contemplating those online dating emails that randomly find their way into my spam box on a daily basis for this exact reason. I can dig “Latin Singles” in my area. I felt that the fact that 4 of them showed up yesterday had to be a sign.

    Mine thinks he’s being funny. Only, the only one laughing is him. As he sits there gaming, I’m rushing around dressing all three of the boys-who-think-mandatory-clothing-in-public-is-a-violation-of-their-civil-rights. And then. And THEN, when they show up he says something like, “Uh-oh, did you let Mommy comb your hair?” and, “Mommy LOVES those sweaters, doesn’t she?” Which is not that bad. Haha, I know, I suck at combing their hair, and they do always wear the same sweaters but that’s b/c the other ones are from your mom and they make them look like the 40 yr old virgin, midget edition.

    But it continues, all day. Something about “someone” (who is obviously me, since last time I checked the 1 year old, the 4 year old, and the 8 year old were still avoiding all household chores) not rinsing the dishes before they go in the washer. And, some slowly delivered instruction about how it’s important to “take your trash outta the car, because we don’t want it all dirty, guys, you have to help Mommy, remember”. Annoying!

    Latin singles are starting to look pretty dang good. That’s all I’m saying.

    Sorry for the long comment.

    Glad someone left a link to your blog on my blog. You should pay that person. Or, maybe you do. Either way, it worked.


  2. Oh yes! I.have.found.nirvana. On Sunday, the hubs had the nerve to tell me that he would stay home with the baby and I could go out and work to pay all the bills. grrrr. I’m still thinking of ways to get him for that comment. I offered to do a trial switch for a day (I go to his job and he stays home and does mine). He quickly backed down…I don’t think he even knows how to operate the laundry machine.

    Came by on reference from mommycares!
    …oh, and love your playlist!!!

    After 22 years of marriage my husband says, “I never would have wanted to stay home with the kids.” My husband also says that after the weekend home with me he likes to go work on Monday because I wear him out from all the work on the weekends (LOL). It is nice to be appreciated and he really and truly appreciates me, now he has other issues, like um. he has serious trouble spending money (LOL) wouldn’t want you to think he is perfect, only I am the perfect one in the relationship (LOL)


  4. Hey, Kat! Stopping by from SITS. Taking advantage of a quiet a.m. while Grandson is still asleep. Yay! We get him all day and he can play w/all his Xmas toys. I’m tellin’ you, Grandparenting is the best in whole world!

    btw, Hubster wants me to do a blog entitled “What I Can Do, Now That I’m 2”. I think I’ll start it as a once-a-week post on my main blog. But has some interesting potential, huh?

    Have a great New Year! Can’t wait to ‘work’ with you both.


  5. ahhh, its all in your head. priceless.
    Dropping by from Sits 😀

    Oh good, it’s rip on your DH day. Perfect because I just posted a post about the lousy job my DH did on my Christmas (again). Makes you crazy sometimes! Glad I’m not the only one.


  7. Crystal says:

    Wow, sounds like my life. lol. Stopping by from SITS.


  8. Funny my post today is about men and women saying things that really affect their partner! I would totally feel like you if my husband pointed out that there was nothing in the fridge!
