I'm thinking of filing for divorce....

...sure, I've been all deep and thoughtful in the days leading up to Christmas trying to impress you all with my tear-provoking prose.

But this morning I just gotta be real for a few minutes.

Hope you don't mind if I vent here.

And really, what are bloddies (blog buddies) for?

So here's the conversation.

It's not gonna be pretty, though, and I'm sorry to subject you to this on Christmas morning (oh yea, Merry Christmas, BTW, but sorry this is all about me, me, me at the moment)

Ready?

Take a deep breath.

Steve: Quit wiggling, go back to sleep.
Me: I can't.
Steve: Seriously, Jenny, it is only like 4:30 am
Me: Sorrrrrry.
Steve: Merry Christmas now go back to sleep.
Me: I can't.
Steve: Well I can't sleep if you're so wiggly. Really, you are like a little kid.
Me: Well, maybe we should just get up then.
Steve: I need to sleep a little longer.
Me: Well, maybe I'll just go out and watch Martha for awhile.
Steve: No, you're gonna poke around at your presents.
(We had a fifty dollar limit for each other this year and our goal was to buy the most amount of presents for that money...we do weird stuff like that usually)
Me: Well, there is a big pile.
Steve: Jenny! Go back to sleep.
Me: Well, I can't. I'm getting up.
Steve: OK, but no shaking presents.
Me: Oh?
Steve: And no touching presents.
Me: Oh?
Steve: And no poking presents.
Me: Oh.
Steve: And no opening your stocking stuffer box until I get up.
Me: (silence)
Steve: You were going to open that without me weren't you?
Me: (silence)
Steve: Jenny?
Me: Ssssshhh....I'm trying to go back to sleep.
Steve: sigggggggghhhhhh

What do you think? It is now 6:49 am and he is still not up.

I'm gonna have to go "accidentally-on-purpose" slam the bedroom door or something.

It won't be my fault if I trip over the dog or my slippers.

Right?

That would be OK, right?

Cuz, seriously.

I am not getting any younger here.

Sigh.

Funny! My 2 year old woke up at 9:00 AM!

Brenda said...

So sweet! It was just hubby and I yesterday and he was not in any hurry to open presents. He got up made coffee, made breakfast cannot remember exactly what else and I finally said in exasperation can we at least look in our stockings. Wanted to make sure I got a years worth of gum that I always get. lol. I had not bought any for the whole month and I had chewed my very last piece two days before. Really we had a very nice day together. I decided it was ok we had all the kids and grandkids the Sunday before.

Jana said...

I laughed out loud and my Mother in Law looked at me crazy...now she is laughing...we all know Jenny around here! I hope you got everything you wanted within the $50 dollar budget! your too dang cute for your own good!

LOVE this post!! I am exactly the same way. Ever since I was a little girl and even now I can't sleep on Christmas Eve. It's the longest night of the year. I LOVE that adults can still be this way. :)
