New Sloganizer

Hey everyone - what do you think of my new slogan? Got this idea from Cyli and I thought it was neat. It changes every 30 seconds to a new Deerledge slogan. Fun!

Something happened tonight that gave me pause. We were at our weekly chinese pig-out place and sitting at our favorite booth. Hannah sits on my side of the booth so I always give my purse to Gary to put on the seat beside him... otherwise Hannah ends up dropping food into it, kicking it on the floor or sitting on it. What was that? Your kids would never do that? Well, lucky you. My child can not sit still longer than 5 minutes. Anyhoo.... My nose started running so I asked Gary to open the side of my purse and pass me my little pack of tissues. He does so but also passes me this envelope that I have a couple gift cards in. "Oh put that back." I say, "that's my secret stuff!" He shrugs and puts it back and continues to eat. "What the holy hell is going on here?" I think to myself, blowing my nose. "That shit would NEVER fly with me. There is no way he could say to me, 'That's my secret stuff' without me flipping out and demanding to know exactly what it was. Is nothing sacred for him?" When the mail comes and if he sorts it first, I find everything that is addressed to me in a neat, unopened pile. Whereas if I sort it... I guess I think it's a free-for-all and rip open anything addressed to our house. I must be the nosiest person alive. My poor husband can't even open his own mail. I'm breaking the law and I don't even care.

Don't get all in a tithy over this Sheri. I do the same thing. I absolutely hate it when either Kristen or Tim open the mail before I do. I don't open mail addressed to my daughter, unless it's a thing from one of her magazines or something, But I HAVE to open all mail addressed to Tim. I think it's because we are the women of the house and we need to be on top of EVERYTHING in order to feel like we are keeping control and order in the house. I also tell them all that my bedstand and my purse are completely off limits, especially this time of year. Take a breath and rest easy dear friend...you are so not alone! Luvs!

oh, I sooooo don't want to know what Jeff's secret stuff is OR what his mail might say... The man ain't right.

oh Sheri I know what you mean. I can't handle anybody looking at the mail, touching the mail, or anything before i do. Not that i have anything to hind it is just one of those pet peeves i have. As for secret stuff Dan would have politly opened it right up and found out exactly what was so secret. He's just that way..

Sue said...

I'm with you on this one! Ej wouldn't have opened the envelope either, he probably would think it was kotex or something scary like that! Hey, do you guys want to do a craft while you're here?

The only thing I ever opened of my H's was his credit card bill -- which was often full-o-surprizes. But my only reason for doing so was that I pay the bills. Everything else, I put in a neat little pile on his computer keyboard.

I don't really know if I should contribute on the matter. After all if not for the "free-for-all"... (but had to do it secretely, otherwise would be dead long ago :( )

Heather said...

I go back and forth - depends on what the mail looks like as to whether its one to be opened by me :)

Chicka said...

LOL! Same thing here. Only TFB would never even go in my purse to begin with because there might be "girly" things in there (even if it's not that time of the month).

And me - yeah, rip it all open. I'm entitled.
