What to Do? What to Do?

I’m sitting at home and it’s **gasp** QUIET!  Kinda hard to believe with a full house, but it really is!  Baby B is sleeping, Miss-Y is at a sleepover and Hubs is on a “man-date”.  He wanted to go see that LA Battle or Battle of LA or LA2013 or something like that.  You know, the one where the numbers turn into letters…I think.  I had ZERO interest.

Hubs is a die-hard sci-fi guy, and I’m…not.  All that alien and fantasy stuff is so unrealistic to me and I literally fall asleep every time he tries to get me to watch.  (Although if you ask him, the romantic comedies I like to watch are completely unrealistic to him – and I’ll admit, the chances of a hot, wealthy businessman/politician/etc. falling for a common worker bee a la Jennifer Lopez in Maid in Manhattan are probably slim to none but, whatever, I still like to watch.)

He was surprised to find out that I had never watched some of his fave sci-fi flicks: Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings.  I’ve have seen exactly NONE of them.  But really, surprised?  I mean, come on!  Flying saucers, aliens, and robots just do nothing for me.  So, he’s on his man-date.  Thank goodness my BFF’s hubby is into those movies too…wouldn’t want him sitting in the theater all by his lonesome…

So – alone I sit.  Alone to do my blog stalking uninterrupted.  Alone to write.  Alone to…

Damn, baby just woke up.

So much for my “alone” time.  Didn’t really think that was gonna last, did ya?

  25. Hi! You sound like me. My hubs and kids will refer to a movie that’s now “classic” (at least in my house… like Lord of the Rings or Iron Man) and I’m all like… I never saw it. They are stunned that I’ve only ever seen parts of the first Matrix and none of the others and we own them. (Can you tell all my kids are boys?)

    My hubs is away on a work-related trip for a few days and I’m kinda enjoying the quietness. I have kids that need to be shuttled around but otherwise, I’m getting to do what I want to do. I’m saving tonight for catching up on my blog.

  26. returning the follow!

  27. Thanks for the giggle! I’m so glad my littlest is out of that stage, but I remember it ‘fondly’! (and secretly miss it, but don’t say that out loud!)

  28. Well, it was a nice dream while it lasted, right? 😉

    I am getting all of my blogging in tonight. Most nights are quiet here but weekends usually involve grand kids. Tomorrow we will have 2 boys. They are so cute and always want to help Pop-Pop work. These 2 are 7 and 8 so they may require the occasional computer assistance or food fill up other than that…good age.
    I am a new visitor and follower that just stumbled on over.

  31. Oh, those alone moments are so rare. Thanks for linking up on Friendsday. I’m following you now.

  32. LOL so funny! Silence is golden. I have a sleeping baby and hubby wasn’t feeling well so he went to sleep ealy too. I’ve never enjoyed the quiet as I do now. Thanks for following Mommy Time Out
