PAPARAZZI BY PROXY, and my first week as a SAHM

My husband is a 'paparazzi in denial' which makes me his 'paparazzi by proxy'.  Ever since he bought me the camera he has been dragging me outdoors, sometimes at ungodly hours, to see a photo-op.  He points things out as we're whizzing by on the freeway at 75 miles, and then fusses when I miss the shot.  Last night Rocky, who spends way too much time watching the Food Network with us... set up a plate of sashime (raw fish... yummy!) and paid special attention to the 'presentation'.  she had the fish slices spiraling out from the center of the plate in a very eye-appealing fashion.  I complemented her on the 'presentation', then grabbed a piece of fish, dunked it into the wasabi and soysauce and popped it into my mouth.  Dickidoo gasped in disbelief.

Dickidoo:  'Aren't you going to take a picture of it?'

Boobidoo (thats me):  'No, I'm going to eat it!'

Dickidoo (giving me that look of his that he usually uses on the kids when he is questioning their intelligence) : 'She spent a lot of time on that to make it perfect'

Boobidoo:  'And it is perfectly delicious' 

Dickidoo (gives me that Dickidoo eye-roll that he saves just for me!)

I just got off the phone with him.  I think he spends his day thinking of things for me to do with my newly found free time.  Today's assignment, look for all of our tax papers, and get the information together for submitting our hunting applications.... those are both all day projects.  You know what... maybe dragging my butt out into the cold isn't such a bad idea afterall.

Gotta love the guy though, he warmed up Big Red for me this morning, and even scraped off the windshield, which was nice since he stole my extended windshield scraper for the Hemi and left me with a teenie tiny car scraper... Hmmmmm.... okay, never mind...  I have to say though its been nice actually seeing him.  He's on a brief break from college, his classes start back up next week, but for the past week we've been able to sit down together as a family at the dinner table the way it should be.  You know, I could really get used to this... this 'being a mom and a wife' thing.  One thing's for sure, there's no time to be bored, so for all those folks who predicted that I would go nuts with boredom (myself included!)... that is a non-issue!  It ain't gonna happen!  Not in this lifetime!  Not in this household! 

What is even greater... all the coffee I can drink... anytime I want it!  I love my Bunn-Omatic!
