Happy Sunday TKW Family! How are you? Wait hold that thought, I need to put some fuzzy socks and sweatpants on! Tis a bit brisk this Sunday morning here in the ‘Burgh. We actually were discussing this last night as we were watching the ending of The Sopranos. I actually had to have Mr. Fantabulous stop the show so I could go grab my uber soft ‘n fuzzy blanket. Now let me tell you a minute about this hot pink zebra striped blanket that is only big enough for a single person. Well wait, I just did… I mean the blanket is a single person blanket – a snugglin’ blanket HOWEVER my darling husband has taken a fancy to it as it’s uber soft. I mean ridiculously soft! So as I curled up next to him under my blanket let’s just say the war began. I’m talking about the “Blanket Tug War”.
Initially it started off with my curling up next to him all snuggled up under my blanket then a few minutes later I felt his foot sneak underneath. Next came just the hand which lead to the forearm and half of his body. Now I was okay with this UNTIL he inhaled SUPER he-man like and as he did he shifted and proceeded to shift WITH my blanket in his hands. Houston we have a problem! My feet were no longer covered nor was my right hip/thigh. This was no good as I was freezing. So I nonchalantly pulled the blanket, MY BLANKET, back onto my entire body however I found that I was met with resistance. The blanket now had become taut between us and I was getting major stink eye from him. Now to be polite I got up, grabbed another throw blanket. I ripped my blanket off of him and covered him up with the other one while I proceeded to cocoon myself in MY blanket.
This, apparently, was the line in the sand and I not only crossed it but I jumped up and down on the line. Off went his blanket and in seconds mine was ripped off of me and that big moose wrapped himself up in it all burrito-style. I sat there mouth agape while he laid there all smug (and toasty warm). I tried to grab it back but he had some vice grip lock on it and it wasn’t budging. Now mind you, during all of this not a single word was spoken though evil death glares were shooting out like flaming arrows. So me, being me (insert wicked grin) grabbed the other blanket, snuggled up and gently ran my nails through his hair. See that gets him every time! It’s kinda like when you rub a dog’s ears and they go nuts. Play with his hair and he’s yours. But see I just did a single run through and pulled my hand away. As I did he gave me the biggest pity look and started to nudge me to do it again. Instead I just laid there twirling my hair which again, is just cruel to him as HE should be the recipient of all hair tickles. He’d grab my hand and put it on his head only to have me pull it away and go back to mine. I know.. I’m pure evil but damn it, that was my blanket! LOL
Finally he let out a huge frustrated sigh, ripped the blanket off of me and gave me back mine grumbling away. I just chuckled, snuggled up closer so I could get it to cover as much of him as I could while still covering me. And yes I went back to tickling his hair. It’s funny because as it was all said and done I caught a glimpse of him out of the corner of my eye only to see him beaming from ear to ear in contentment.
Speaking of the Sopranos, as I said we finally finished the series. I really don’t care for how they ended it. There are cliffhangers sure but this one was just way too vague for me. I’m also watching True Blood. I read the books and LOVED them but had never seen the show. Well it wasn’t until a few weeks ago did I realize that with my Amazon Prime that I can stream free movies and shows! So yeah… free True Blood!
Oh so you should see our grounds now! See this summer has been extremely rough for us. Mandatory OT for me then Mr. Fantabulous having a double umbilical surgery only to once he finally was healed my contracting osteomyelitis our grounds have suffered severely. So the past week my honey and a good friend of ours (who’s also the rhythm guitarist in the band) have been busting their butts doing the grass, trees, weed whacking, etc. I think just weed whacking alone took them 8 hours. But not my yard looks presentable…. just in time for snow!
Today for me is a lazy day. I have this chill to the bone so I’ve been sipping on this new tea I found. Chocolate Chai! This is amazing!
On the health front I go see my doctor this week and I think he’s finally taking out that PICC line which means the quarantine will be lifted and I can go back to work. More importantly I can workout! You have no idea how much I miss working out.
Also you may have noticed some new links on the side and bottom of the website for Sur La Table, Flirty Aprons and Ball Canning Jars. These are companies that I personally use and love their products they produce! With the holidays only a few months away, why not start your shopping early?
Well it’s time for me to go make some more tea to warm up these bones (and curl up under MY blanket). Have a fantabulous week!
