I AM funny. To my husband.

One of my favorite things every Friday night is waiting for Matt to come home, putting Addison to bed and then watching movies. (which used to include wine)I say movies, but that is a secret wish of mine, once the clock strikes ten, we are in bed. So that usually means ONE movie, and that can sometimes be a strech.

So our movie of choice last night was "Couples Retreat". Cute, but not so humorous. Anyway, during these types of movies I like to shout out what I think are funny little attempts at comedy. "OH MY GOD, did you see those shorts? Could they BE any shorter! Good Lord Lady!" (Usually these comedic bits are aimed at making fun of another..I know, I must have low self-esteem) Now this one-liner may not be so funny to YOU or anyone else in the room ..BUT I looked over and realized that my husband is laughing out loud at ME. Not at the movie at ME. He loves it! He always has. I realized then that it's true love. The man does comedy for a living and yet he still comes home and finds ME funny.

Everyone always asks, "Is he funny at home? Does he still make you laugh?"

Yep..he makes me laugh, smile, and giggle every single day. He is my best friend, my rock, my private comedian and I guess he finds me pretty funny too! I guess we were meant to be.

What's in your head?

I love to plan. Wether it's weekends, vacations, holidays or just dinner, planning the occasion is my favorite part.

I have been planning and planning, thinking and planning since being put on bedrest. I have our weeks, weekends and nights planned until 2015. I even have us riding happily in our new RV in 2017, kids, mom and dad all smiles, ready for the start of a fantastic weekend. I have such fond memories of camping with my cousins when I was younger. Riding our bikes, swimming in Atwood Lake, the scarecrow making contest over labor day. I now have the thought firmly implanted in my head that our family should do the same.

"Hey, what do you think about getting an RV one day and camping when the kids are older? " I ask Matt non-chalantly over the weekend.

"What? I can't think past dinner!" He says, obviously amazed I would even broach the subject.

That got me thinking, the man's head is so full, what is it so full of? If he isnt thinking about what he needs to do for the day, week, or what we are going to eat for dinner, then what is he thinking about?

It was then that I figured it out, Matt's brain is 93.8% full of sports. I realized that sports center is on in the background all day, sports talk is on in the car all day. He works out to podcasts about sports for the love of pete. He reads every sports magazine ever written, weekly, monthly, you name it. He goes online and researches teams and players and gets the latest stats. He is on 3 fantasy football teams. Oh and get this, he can see a baseball game from 1972 on TV and tell me what play is going to happen next. Now that is impressive.

So there you have it, my brain is full of multitasking, he can hyper-focus on sports. Whatever works, as long as he's happy. :)
