Youngbloods4ever has just recently admitted to having a reading addiction that HAS to be just as bad as mine...which is WHY I we/I love her. She is a wife and mom to four kids. Her writing style is honest and witty. You can also find her at her own blog YoungBloods4ever.
I grew up in a very "gaming" household. Sunday nights we busted out the cards, board game, you name it. We sat down for hours of competitive fun.
Hubby, on the other hand, did not. He grew up creating his own fun, hiding from his insane older siblings and hanging with friends.
I didn't think this would be a source of contention within our marriage. But believe it or not, it has been. When Sunday night rolls around I still get a twitch in my hands for a good game of Hands and Feet or Scum. I'd love to hear the word "PIT" screamed in my house once in a while. I wouldn't mind getting a Life with my kids. Sitting on Baltic with crap doesn't sound like a bad idea this week.
Sorry for the poor sound quality. It's youtube's fault, not mine. But I love his physical comedy, so I had to add this!
I was thinking about the Toilet issue and what really bothers me. Games kept coming to mind. I know I have to be reasonable about this. I know that hubby really loves to just hang and watch movies.
The major issue is that during movies I believe in the "no talkie" rule. Unless, of course, it is me that is talking. In which case I am totally allowed to talk whenever! So, how do we converse when all we do is watch movies? How do we really spend that alone time with each other when there is a third party? (the tv, duh!)
I love the interaction, competitiveness (within reason) and the fun that can be had during a great game session.
I'll be over at Bejeweled Blitz if you are interested. Since hubby isn't I have to "cheat on him" and turn to my computer for my fix. (Minds out of the gutters, PLEASE! My fix is with GAMES. Did you read anything I said?)
