Earth to Mister

Well, I'm still trying to find my way out of the debris left from unpacking from our trip. I have some great stories and some (for me) actually pretty good photos to share, but that will have to wait until my mind is less foggy. The Little Guy is going through a pretty rough bout of teething - on top of the aftermath of being stuck in a car for 3 days - and sleep here is scare. And I do mean scarce.

It seems that my husband has been a very busy little blogger while I've been away. He says that blogging is not for him, but I have to say that the prolific nature of his posts says otherwise. He posts more than I do! Of course, he was child-free for 7 days. I might be more chatty if I wasn't corralling kids all day. I'm just sayin'.

I feel obliged, however, to clear up some fun facts that he has shared:

Fun Fact #1 Yes, I do like to run, but I don't think I'm faster than Mr Earth. I AM faster than him. In fact, I am probably faster than him if I ran backwards, hopping on one leg and carrying the Little Guy (all 22.5 lbs of him). Up for the challenge, Mr Earth??

Fun Fact #2 I really, really do love all the blogger friends I've made. You made my disillusioned self believe again that community and support in the Mother 'Hood can exist. For that, I will be eternally grateful.

Fun Fact #3 Okay, YES, I do have an unhealthy obsession with sweets. Mr Earth knows better than to make me choose between him and chocolate. He doesn't like his odds...

Fun Fact #4 Aw shucks, Mr Earth is too kind. He is the true talent of the family. I wish I had half his natural comedic timing and creativity. People ask me to tell them a joke, and I'm like "Uhhh..." (I'm really fun at parties, btw. Great conversationalist.)

Fun Fact #5 I do NOT "glom" on to the wrong part of the story! I simply inject commentary to illustrate the fact that I am paying attention to his recitation. (Instead of thinking about shapes and colours, for example.) The real problem here is the Mr Earth doesn't like to be interrupted.

Fun Fact #6 "Man-tidy" is more like "Not-tidy".

Fun Fact #7 Mr Earth got a stellar amount of really important chores done while I was away, and I am truly impressed. Who knew a toilet could be so sexy? More importantly, he did an DJ Lance Rock AWESOME job of blog-sitting. Doncha think? Two thumbs up. Great holiday fun.

I was with Metro today, and we both agreed he was lovely. And funny.

Glom. I love that word.

he was a good blog sitter - it's fun to get a different perspective from inside the same home. I think my husband would laugh his @ss off if I invited him to blogsit on my blog, and you can believe me, it would not happen.

He was definitely a good blog sitter! It was neat getting to know a little about the Mr.

I think you two must have great fun together.

I think you must have picked up on his comedic timing, 'cause you're one funny sleep deprived momma.

Loved the sitter, love the blogger more and looking forward to doing a little more reading this term (I hope!)...if full time school and nearly full time work don't get in the way. The shouldn't, should they?

I'll miss his whimsy but I am also so very happy to have you back. I hope you at least blew a kiss as you were driving by.

Your husband was wildly amusing - I'm now trying to make MY husband guest post. And I'm glad you're back.

Yes, Mr. Earth was a great blog sitter. Except he made me jealous with all his nap-taking...

:)

"inject commentary to illustrate the fact that I am paying attention to his recitation"

That's so what I do, too--and it's always confused with interrupting.
