He Said: W X Y Zzzzzzz

January 13, 2010 by  

[This is in response to the SHE SAID post]

99 times out of 100, I’m the last one awake.  Bedtime process for the kids starts at 7:45, finally in bed and sleeping by 8:45, then, almost consistently, Kat is out on the couch by 9:30.  Not only is she asleep on the couch, but her smelly, clammy feet are always laying across my lap, with the occassional wiggle – her “subtle” way of saying “since we’re both right here and my feet are 3.5 inches from your face, you should really consider giving me a foot massage.”

Yes, I admit it – for the first time since the summer, I fell asleep on the couch.  I know – I can’t believe it either!  All eligible bachelors should line up outside our door – my gigantic mistake of falling asleep on the couch may be Kat’s tipping point and she finally walks out the door…

My theory is that The Other Half was ticked off that, for one night, she had to a) trudge upstairs to tuck everyone in, b) turn on the alarm system, c) get the dog in the house, and d) clean up any remaining dishes that were left in the kitchen before she hit the sack.  (Did I mention that this is done by THE MAN of the house the other 99 times out of 100?).

For the record, Mario Kart the Wii is fantastic.  (Spooner, I give the boys another week or so and they’ll be ready for prime time).  What else can keep a 1-year old, a 3-year old, a 5-year old and a 36-year old occupied for hours on end?  My $50 investment in this game has already paid dividends above and beyond the OTHER gift that wasn’t discussed – the laptop that came in Santa’s sack.

Sunday morning was definitely a struggle – it’s amazing how easily the mood can turn from jubilation (I crushed the boys on the Yoshii Falls race track) to a true battle of the sexes.  I will give credit where due however – I never expected Kat to say “let’s move on” at the beginning of the service.  I can find no better example of the necessary give-and-take of a relationship.

Oh, and by the way, this is the exact position she was in last night as I was finishing the post at 9:30 pm (no joke).  She looked SO comfortable there…hopefully I didn’t wake her up playing the Wii!!
