I just wanted to do a quick post today to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates it, and let you know the blog will be quiet for the next couple days as I'll be spending time with family. And reading. Probably mostly reading ;-)
There may be a little football watching mixed in there at some point as the hubs is in a fantasy football league with all the men on my side of the family and is currently winning, much to the chagrin of my dad and brother. They are somewhat less than amused. I just laugh at their antics and then return to reading. This is how conversations with the hubs often go when we're both absorbed in our separate entertainments:
Hubs: Dammit! I can't believe I didn't play that running back! Also, this new point system your brother's worked out for our league this year is ridiculous. The guy I have on the bench has 60 points.
Me: Uh huh.
Hubs: 60 POINTS JENNY AND I DIDN'T PLAY HIM!
Me: That's a tragedy.
Hubs: It is. I'm going to lose this week.
Me: Mm hm.
Hubs: Are you even listening?
Hubs: Have you heard anything I just said?
Me: Absolutely. I hear and absorb everything you say. You are my world.
Me: Want me to tell you about the book I'm reading?
Me: This book, it's made of win. Want me to tell you why?
Hubs: Uh huh.
Hubs: Mm hm. I'm so pissed I didn't play him. Now I only have my defense left against the four guys your dad's got going tonight and tomorrow.
Me: I would leave you for Jericho Barrons and/or Noah Shaw and/or Kaidan Rowe if they were real. Just saying.
Hubs: What's that?
Me: Sucks you're losing.
Hubs: I know!
Me: I'm going to go back to reading now.
Hubs: Uh huh.
Ah, enlightened conversations, how I love you so:)
