Another "Matt story" and a tag

Tuesday I couldn't get Matt out of the bed to save my soul. Finally around 1:00 pm he rolls out.

"What's for breakfast?"


"What's for breakfast, Mom."

"Son, it's 1:00 in the afternoon, are you crazy ... I'm NOT cooking you any breakfast. If you want breakfast, you're going to have to cook it yourself."

"But Mommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..."

"Ok, what do you want?"

"I want bacon, scrambled eggs, gravy and homemade biscuts."

"Ok, while I cook you something to eat, go clean your pit sty of a room and while you're at it strip those sheets off your bed, they need washing."

I sling the skillet and mixing bowl out of the cabinet and proceed to whip up a homemade breakfast. I get everything fixed ready for my hungry boy to eat, go to his room to see the progess ....

HE'S BACK IN THE BED WATCHING T.V. Had not made the first effort to pick anything up in the "pig sty" and the bed isn't stripped yet ... I was absolutely furious.


"Mom, I'll clean it, I promise."

I'm thinking to myself, yeah right. I'll be the one to pick up those funky socks, those nasty jeans and those smelly sweaty shirts.

"If you don't get this room picked up TODAY, I'm going to ground you till you leave."

"Mom, I love you" all the while pinching my cheeks so hard that he left a red mark.

Well, I'll give you three guesses who cleaned the room and stripped the bed and the first two don't count.

The rest of the day not much exciting happened. We spent some time in the pool. Matt left around 6:00 pm going to a friends house. I cooked a litle supper, I worked in my yard a little, jumped back in the pool, watched a little TV myself that night.. can you say BORING...

Now ... TAG, I'M IT!!!

I was tagged by my fellow schmoozer Toni for an 8 things about you and your hubby meme. Like Toni and her hubs, we are not an 'exciting couple, nor are we a 'power couple'. But we are a couple who loves one another and will go that extra mile when need be. Sometime... no alot of the time ... one is giving more than the 50/50 share. But that's what makes our relationship work.

1.) We are an interracial couple. We met at work. He is part of the management team. I never thought our relationship would be anymore than a working relationship. Here it is 3 years later and we are still together.

2.) We are not married, however may as well be. Live in the same house, share the same money, etc. Only difference is we don't have a piece of paper. Right now this really isn't that important.

3.) He is the choir director at church. He has the most beautiful voice. I can't carry a tune in a 10 gallon bucket with a handle on it.

4.) He tore down the brick wall I had around my heart after I went through a rough and messy divorce. I swore I would NEVER be involved with another man. I was ever so wrong there.

5.) He is NOT picky at all. I could cook the same meal at supper for a week and he would eat it and not say nothing.

6.) We don't argue. We have disagreements and they are always worked out before we go to sleep at night.

7.) He has the most beautiful green eyes you will ever see.

8.) He can clean the house and do the laundry so much better than me.

See, I told you... not very exciting at all. Heck, we've been know to go to bed on Friday night at 6:30, eat supper in bed, curl up and watch TV ... seriously, Kaitlin has even been known to crawl up there with us.

So I guess now it's my turn to tag some one with this meme... let me see, who shall I pick???? Ummmm...

eeny, meeny, miney, mo.... Oh here we go...

Sandee from COMEDY PLUS cause I just lurves her and I get to tag her first

Turn from TURNBABY because she is my fellow hoochie momma

Kyra from THE 108 because she will make this meme soooooo very interesting

I won't punish anyone else with this meme... ;-)

Boys will be boys hon - but you'll wish he was around to pinch your cheeks soon enough.

OOPS - sorry, didn't mean to make you cry....

Hey Dixie...
Funny, my older boy (his name is also Matt) wasn't much on cleaning his room either. In fact I think it got cleaned for the first time, the day he left town for bigger and better things, lol.

'He can clean the house and do the laundry so much better than me.' - where can I find me one of these?

Take care;

I'm on it!


Blogger Comedy + said ... (7/11/2007 1:55 PM) : 

Oh I just love the Matt stories. He is the typical teen. Your breakfast sure sounded good though. I would have cleaned up my room for that...

Okay on the meme. Linda over at Are We There Yet? tagged me too. I'll have it up today. I love you too. :)


Blogger Turnbaby said ... (7/11/2007 3:04 PM) : 

LOL on the tag--

and the one you missed is he is one FINE LOOKING MAN!!

and a very lucky one to have you Sugarbaby



Blogger Linda said ... (7/11/2007 5:57 PM) : 

I guarantee you that Matt will learn to not only strip a bed but make one as well as keep everything in neat order once the Marines get their hands on him! Guaranteed!


Blogger Meribah said ... (7/11/2007 6:07 PM) : 

Nothing wrong with interracial couples. After all, no matter what colour your skin is, we're all human. And who cares if you're not exciting so long as your happy? Hugs! :)


Blogger Travis said ... (7/11/2007 8:17 PM) : 

In just a short while that boy will be up at 4am and have done a full day's training by 1300, including cleaning his area and making that bed.

No more worries on that front for you darlin.


Blogger Travis said ... (7/11/2007 8:18 PM) : 

Oh - I agree with you that marriage just isn't necessary sometimes. If it's the right thing for y'all, you'll get around to it.


Blogger Comedy + said ... (7/11/2007 8:46 PM) : 

Post is up my friend. :)

About the pigsty of a room that houses a boy...I was glad when my son went to college but it took a major overhaul to clean his room. So he was gone for 4 years only to return for a mere couple weeks to completely demolish everything I had done. I tried! At least he cooks and does laundry though!
