Fly On The Wall In October

     Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group blog postings, hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, seven bloggers are once again inviting you into their homes for a sneak peek at what goes on behind their closed doors.

     The fly buzzing around my house this past month saw several birthday celebrations and a whole bucketful of love. I feel so blessed to have all of my children living nearby. I see them every weekend, and sometimes during the week. How cool is that? I am also blessed to be married to my best friend, who never fails to make me laugh no matter what curves life throws me. These are the best years of my life, and I look forward to many more birthdays with this crazy family of mine.

     Here are some snippets of conversation shared with my hubs this past month:


"We ate too much bean dip at the party. I'm pretty certain we'll be farting in bed all night."
"Well, don't be surprised if we wake up to find our sheets on the ceiling."

"How was your birthday trip to St. Augustine? What did you guys do?"
"Fat. We got fat."

"Why do you need another purse? You already own a gazillion of them."
"I need different colors and sizes to match my outfits."
"Then men should be able buy dozens of wallets for every occasion. A church wallet, a fine dining wallet.....a velcro one for sporting events, a casino wallet with lots of pockets, and a date night wallet with a condom holder...."
"Okay, you made your point. But I'm still buying the damn purse."

"I'm tired of food having so many calories. From now on, I'm eating off your plate because your calories don't count."

ME TO HUBS: "It's time for me to teach you how to twerk."
HUBS: (dressed in underwear and socks) "Are you making me do this because I may or may not have had too many glasses of wine tonight?"
ME: "No, I'm asking you to do it because I need to be entertained."
HUBS: (grabbing bedrail in an attempt to hold his balance while he moves his butt back and forth) "Is this the right way?"
ME: (gasping for air because I can't stop laughing) "It's right if you're trying to imitate a manatee during a mating ritual."
HUBS: "Glad I could amuse you, but I think I just threw my back out...."

"Geez, it's October and its still 87 degrees out. This heat makes it harder than normal for me to be fat."

"You know you're old when you have to pack a knee brace, arch support pads, and extra pain relievers for a trip."

"How's the diet going?"
"Great! I had three egg whites for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and chicken for dinner."
"Good for you---but why can't I find my six leftover chicken wings that were in the fridge?"
"I didn't say what kind of or how MUCH chicken I ate, did I?"

"Did you know that you walk like a penguin when you wake up at 3:00am to go to the bathroom?"
"Yep. I'm doing my best imitation of a Weeble wobbler because they don't fall down."

"Let's buy our Halloween candy now before the store runs out of the good stuff."
"You're not fooling anyone with that excuse. Those mini chocolate bars are for your personal stash. If I buy the treats now, there will be nothing left to pass out on Halloween except for candy corn and gum."
"After 33 years of marriage, you know me too well. Time to trade you in for a newer model..."

  1. Have I mentioned I love your family?! I love most that you are so happy together!
    A sense of humour. It makes the world go round. Or spin out of control!

  2. I definitely need video of those twerking lessons!
    Hope you had a great birthday.

  3. Your last comment reminds me how one of my friends/mentors has always introduced his (in EVERYONE's opinion) his better half...
    Let me introduce you to my first wife, Anni

    1. Hopefully I'm the better half in our marriage, ha-ha!

  4. Of course the woman is the better half. Men couldn't make it without us. We had several birthdays this month as well. Your trip sounded fabulous (followed you on facebook)

  5. Aw, you guys are so cute and funny! Happy birthday, Marcia! Was it yours or one of the kids? Both my kids are this month, too. It's hard being fat in this weather---LOL!! Have a great weekend.

    1. It was my birthday, my son's fiance's, and my daughter's boyfriend's birthday. Busy month!!

  6. I had to stop buying the good Halloween candy because I was eating it all. I love the "your calories don't count!" My husband's calories don't seem to count. He's been the same weight forever. Sort of annoying, but also kind of great!

    1. For sure---my hubs looks great--never gains much weight. Me, on the other hand.....

  7. Oh my god, that was SO funny!! I laughed so much & so loudly, my son asked me what was so funny. I am a menopausal mom, too, thanks to a hysterectomy a couple of years ago, and I don't get to have nearly the number of fun conversations you have. I better stick around and see how you do it. ;)

    1. My door is always open---come hang out here a bit and you will see how crazy this family is, ha-ha!

  8. Fun conversations. You and your hubby sound a lot like me and Mrs. C.

    1. Probably because we have both been married for quite some time. :)

  9. Thanks for making me laugh so hard. My hubby isn't happy until he's said something to make me laugh in the morning. Then he knows I'm turning human.

    1. Agreed--I need laughter every morning to start my day off right.

  10. Your family is so much fun! I love this stage in our lives because we become friends. We're not taking care of them, they're not taking care of us. At no other time are we more equals than now. I'm enjoying it immensely as you are!

  11. Haha... I am glad you got the purse but I do love your hubby's idea of all the different types of wallets a man might need... especially the one for date night that had a place for a condom... lol

    I totally agree with not buying Halloween candy early... it won't make it to the kids... it would make it to my hips... haha

    1. Oh you and me both, girl. I love me some mini Snickers Bars.....
