Cords, plugs and modems...oh my...

So I was beginning to think David was really watching what he was saying/doing so as not to make it on to the blog...

and then last night occurred.

We have been having some Internet issues (I think it's due to the world's worst laptop EVER: Dell), so he went upstairs to mess around with the modem and figure it out.

After about 20 minutes and no joyful "It works!" coming from him, I went upstairs to see what was going on.

He was down on his hands and knees, under the table, with all the computer wires.

Exasperated, tells me, "It's just not working. We probably need a new modem or something." (or a new computer, hint, hint)

Okay, I say. Lemme see.

I crawled under the table too.

And immediately noticed what was wrong.

The modem was not plugged in.

At all.

I point this out to him.

"But I followed the cord from the modem and it was plugged in."

Okay. What cord did you follow again?

He grabs the one he followed, from the "modem" and was all proud of himself that it was in fact, plugged in.

And I must be wrong.

He had been following the cord from the portable DVD player on the table, not the modem.

The DVD player is pink, says "Sony DVD" on it, and has a stack of DVDs next to it.

But yet it's the modem.

Cool Cat

I woke up this morning and went into the spare bedroom...we had spent Saturday night in OKC, and I didn't unpack hardly a thing, just left it all pretty much on the floor in the other bedroom. And Tatumbell has found a new bed due to my laziness.

Yep, that's a cooler. Good kitty. :)

I just realized (again) the other day how lucky I really am.

Regardless of the stupid shit he sometimes says and does, I married a pretty amazing man.

And here's some evidence of this:

1. I have class on Tuesdays and after being at work all day and going to class for three hours, the absolute last thing I want to do when I come home is clean up the dirty dishes still in the sink from Sunday, empty the clean dishes from the dishwasher and then refill it with all those dirty ones in the sink. I was not looking forward to this chore. And it didn't matter cause it was done when I got home.

2. I have not cleaned out the litter box. In probably a year and a half now.

3. When I sit down on the couch, if he's already watching something on the t.v., he hands me the remote for me to choose what we watch instead. (I rarely do though...I don't mind his "Man vs. Food" or "Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations" shows he watches).

4. He makes the bed every single day.

5. If you didn't already know, David is an OU fan (actually graduated from OU, so he's not one of THOSE fans...), yet he wears orange to every single home OSU game with me.

6. Just for fun we have already chosen baby names, one for each gender. And then realized they were our NASCAR drivers' names...(Elliot and Kasey).

7. He thinks I'm a better cook than his mother...(shhh, don't tell Connie that!)

8. He knows that Allie and Tatumbell actually run our household, not us.

9. He loved that my friends' kids called him "Uncle David", but now that he's really going to be an uncle, he's ecstatic, and doesn't mind that I keep buying the new babies stuff...

10. I get random text messages reminding me how much he loves me.

A collective awwwww here would be appreciated :)

Trash Days

Our trash is picked up on Tuesdays and Fridays.

It's become David's job to put the trash out, unless it's raining or something the night before, then I'll do it the morning of instead.

Last night, David went to the library to study. When he came home around 9:30, he was all bent out of shape because "the neighbor must have left his trash cans out since Tuesday cause they were still out there. SO irresponsible and tacky of him."

Last night was Thursday.

The trash was being picked up the next morning.

He didn't miss a beat though when I pointed this out to him.

"I'm just giving you stuff for your blog, ya know."

Den is DONE!

The furniture maze I had to put up with...

Big ol' crack and bump had to be patched up with concrete.

After waiting three weeks, the tile is finally being put in!

With the new 4 1/4 baseboards.

Tatumbell coming in the room to check out the floors that no longer have his pee smell!

With the furniture back in!
