KISS the BABY
I think one of the things that make my marriage to T such a success is the "Opposites Attract" law. While we are so alike in so many ways, we are so different in many ways also. One I will point out today is that I am a "WANTER" and T is a "NEEDER". Now me being a WANTER is easy to understand...I want shit. T being a NEEDER is not to be confused with being NEEDY. She is not NEEDY but she knows the difference between WANTS and NEEDS. Thats one reason why it is good for me to have her by my side.
See I want......
What a nice lazy weekend.
Some of us were a bit under the weather this weekend.
Tried to deal with stupid computer and printer and wireless problems all weekend. All because I cant find a f-ing disk that installs the printer to the new laptop. I looked everywhere and it is no where.
Had the kids playing out in the water for a little bit.
T beat me at a game of basketball and so did C1. And for the record I dont let them beat me, I hate losing. And T wouldnt even give me a rematch.
Our garden looks like shit. Millions of bugs, millipedes everywhere even on our basement. Our two compost bins...They suck ass. Not breaking down at all, so I think I am going to dump them and burn that shit.
I took C2 out Saturday morning to run some errands with me. Some one on one time. Try to connect with him a little and give him some attention.
T and I went against our original judgement and let the kids play Indiana Jones Lego on the Wii yesterday for a little bit and it feels good to know that we made the right choice to let them play and when they ask if they can have it we can tell them not at this time because of the violence in the game. It had guns and we dont do the guns thing. Not in legos, not in the pool, NO GUNS!!!
T cooked some awesome meals this weekend. Her famous crock pot chicken tacos, a awesome omelet, chicken taco quesadilla. So good.
T and I started watching the Harry Potter Movie. We started at number 1 and have watched some of it. We cant decide if we like it yet. May have to finish it and check another out.
See, lazy weekend. We didnt do a whole lot but we had a great weekend.
Maybe the NFL owners and players will get their heads out of their ass' today and end the lockout.
Kiss the Baby
It seems like we packed so much into the short weekend. Usually we are either trying to just take a weekend to relax or we are going to try and pack as much into a weekend as we can.
Friday night C3 and C4 did the baby wearing thing. C3 wore her bunny rabbit and C4 wore Buzz Lightyear. Then the C's had a pull out sofa sleepover. They love having those and watching movies. I took to the bedroom to watch The Lincoln Lawyer while T played on her phone. I loved that movie.
Saturday we woke up and the kids were on auto hyper control and they were bouncing off the walls. We took them to the park and let them play for a while. Looked like it was going to rain but never did. When we got back from the park to relax for a bit and C3 and I decided to get in on the PLANKING game.
Better late than never. I was a little blocked today on what I was going to write about but then just like a child smacking you in the balls with a bat, it hit me, woke me up and here it is. Didn't hurt like the bat though.
So last week I was talking shit on twitter about a fm radio show that I had never even listened to. A friend of ours was talking about the show and I was dogging it out. Then just out of the blue the shows main man, the host hit me up on twitter and wondered what the deal was.
This is where it got good and funny. I told the guy (on twitter) that I was dogging his fm radio show that I had never listened to and that was all. Well a little bit of time passed and he came back and told me he couldn't give me shit about a blog he had never read either. (Meaning my blog!)
That was classic. An awesome comeback. At that very point I had to start following this guy on twitter. I mean this is a big local fm radio guy here in Atlanta. I don't listen to regular radio, I love the satellite radio. I had never even given the guy a chance. But since he checked out the blog, I owed it to him to listen to the show. So I listened to the show and hit him up told him, I checked it out and he said they were on vacation. Damn it! F-ing re runs.
So I gave it a listen again starting yesterday. And as I was listening I noticed something. This radio show is alot like a blog. They are covering topics and having discussions with callers and each other and they agree and disagree. No arguing, that was different. I read alot of blogs, parenting blogs, family blogs, things that teach and help parents and covers areas dealing with things about children and trust me I don't agree with everything I read and everyone doesn't agree with what I write.
As I was listening to the show yesterday and today, I was getting aggravated just like I do when I read a blog I don't agree with. I wanted to call in and give my two cents worth but didn't. He covered the Atlanta Schools cheating scandal. Today they were talking about kids in restaurants. This guys show is basically a live radio blog. That is how I see it. A live radio blog, that discusses topics and he has his millions of listeners just like I have my millions of readers. Well ok, almost 200 readers but its the same. People listen to his show for him, or the other guy, or either of the two ladies. People read my blog for me, mostly to hear about T or the 4 C's.
But the reason most of the people check out his show and blogs are one in the same. They get personal enjoyment and they feel that connection with everyone. You start to learn about the radio hosts and the people that the blog is about. They have regular callers and I have regular readers.
So to you Bert, I can honestly say that I never in a million years thought I would be listening to your show. Seriously, NEVER. I always talked shit about your show and never even listened. And then in my own taste and style you hit me with a smart ass comeback and that won me over. So now that the satellite radio going back to my buddy, I guess I have to make my hour drive to work somewhat crazy, and listen to the regular radio. So I will be listening to you and don't know if I will ever call in or not but I'm sure I will probably curse some people out just like I have the past two mornings.
If you have a minute check out "The Bert Show" on 99.7 (Q100) and follow him on Twitter @BertShowBert
