I Didn't Do This and Award Time!

So P told me I could post the pic I took of him in the, really he did. I am not sure why he had the change of heart. Maybe because of the mileage he is getting for it in the joke category.

I have to tell you, I am not so amused by it. I have stopped counting the number of people that have jokingly told me that I needed to "take it easy on him" and "tell your wife to stop hitting you. " Being in a prior abusive relationship makes you a little prickly on this subject. I am trying to take it with a grain of salt but I am not happy about it. I am also glad that he wasn't hurt worse although it looked much worse than this the next day. Lots more color. He really could have done some serious harm to his vision...

If you can't see the vacuum, how are you supposed to use it. Trust me, he's already pulled a few "I can't go out in public like this." crap to keep from running errands. Oh, but he can go to Coldstone for ice cream. Umm Hmm. Ok. So don't feel too bad for him.


I SO love some awarding in my life. In particular I love this one because it suggests (rather accurately) that I am a bad ass. This is true although I am not sure that I have written a post that accurately pinpoints it. So, thanks to My2Boys I am happy to pass this on to:

1. Candid Carrie: If you don't already know she kicks ass, you need to visit.
2. BHJ at The Wind in My Vagina: His mission to out the pedophile at the community pool is heroic and his jam sessions with son just rock
3. La Dolce Vida: Because she is so creative and keeps coming up with new stuff for her jewelry
4. A French Fatum: You guys don't know her as I do but you should and she is just the best. She kicks ass all the time through thick and thin.
5. Hullabaloo at Hullabrouhaha: For the dress she wore to a wedding recently. She is the most rockin-est Scotterish gal ever!

Ok all, now you need to pass this wonderful award on to your kick ass faves! Enjoy!

Wow, that looks amazing... and sore. Wow!
I get you on the domestic violence references. I don't make them because I've lived through it also. I know people feel lighthearted when they joke about it, but dang....

Candid Carrie said...

Holy Crap that has gotta hurt! Alright, enough about him. Shall we talk about me now? Not yet, alright.

Sure looks like it would hurt and the insenstive remarks about taking it easy on him, some idiots that don't know what to say like to hear themselves talk.

My turn. So I Kick Ass, huh? Not yet? What? You think I kicked P's ass?

Come on squaw-go-sun, that's not funny. Your readers think I kicked P's ass. Not that I couldn't have but then he budged in line at Coldstone. He took the free sample that was supposed to be mine. That's right, he started it.

No, don't ask him about it.

Please don't ask him. You want me to leave now? Fine, I'm going.

Maybe I should forward this picture to my friend's husband (and father to their two young girls) who has decided at 32 to buy a motorcycle. Sigh.

What don't you know that ice cream makes everything feel better? It a must on my when I'm sick list.

This is what happens to me ANY time someone in the family gets hurt.

First they survive.

Next, I spend the next forever years re-living the incident in my mind and it's always worse in my brain reinactment than it was in real life.

Like right now I am remembering Wen falling face first on the pointy rocks and Wy splitting his head open on the coffee table.


I hope he heals up quick and can get back to his vacuuming soon.

He totally deserved the Coldstone. Seriously.

P.S. Keep forgetting to tell you--I have "Clue" memorized, too. It's one of my all-time faves. I adore Tim Curry. A-D-O-R-E.

Geez, what in the world happened to your husband? (I've been out of town for a week and am WAAAY out of the loop.) It sure looks painful, and I'm sure he's milking it, too ;) I know I would.

Sue said...

Poor P, too bad he didn't keep his bad ass beard to go with the look. Hope you are doing ok, guys being hurt can really be babies.

Ouch! And hey, i think you have pulled a lot of people up on the 'go easy on your husband' line. I am glad P is okay and taking selected errands only!
