Trouble with a capital T : )

I love Writer's Workshop SO so much!
Do you want to try it?
Click on the pretty teacher!

So let me tell you how Big, Bad Gary got in trouble this week!
I know every woman will completely undertand this!
I found this old ID card from my first job.
I was only 22 then.
So any way, it was on the kitchen table.
Gary picked it up.
He was going ON AND ON about how good I looked then.
I would also like to clarify that this was the ONLY time
ever in my entire life when I was not COMPLETELY fat.
(and it was only because I starved myself-
and exercised like a banshee)
So anyway, I said, "That is from a long time ago
Put it away please."
And he said "Will you ever look like that again?
I like that."
Oh. My. GOSH!
No Gary, I will never look like that again.
Unless you can let me QUIT working
so I can excersize like a banshee again.
And unless I QUIT EATING for good.
No, you are stuck with this.
I could go on and on forever about this,
but I will let it just go at that : )

And, here is a picture of Little Kaish.
The love of my life.
He is always in trouble for something.
I can't think about anything he did recently
but that is probably because I am still
SEETHING about Gary.
Ay yi yi!

The real topic I wanted to write about today was
Do you want a baby.
I told Gary I was going to do an essay on that
last night when we were laying in bed.
And he said, "Is there anyone alive that
doesn't know that Becky?"
Whatever : )
Go check out the writers!
They are an interesting bunch!

P.S. I do not know what a banshee is.
And I have no idea how they exercize : )

but i love your ice cream photo :)

Grandma J said...

I didn't know what a banshee was either, and I use it all the time!

So I looked it up..

"Gaelic folklore, a spirit of a woman who appears, wailing, to signal that somebody in the household is going to die."

So is there going to be a baby soon?

The Emery's said...

He must have gotten hit in the head with a hammer or something??

I'd take him to the ER straight away.

April said...

My hubby knows if he ever said anything like that, his next move should be to duck!
Loved the ice cream pic!

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Alright a new baby!

Julie said...

you are perfect just they way God made you!!!

bearer of three said...

Men never think before they i wonder how there brain works

Kristin said...

Geez! All I have to say is that there are much more important things to worry about than excercising and not eating. Perhaps eating everything in sight and of course loving on our beautiful children. All else - over rated! lol!

Mandy, Dustin and Thomas said...

MEN....he deserves to clean the bathrooms for a month for that one. Are you planning on having a baby?!!!!!

P.S. You are a very beautiful women!!!!!!

mimi said...

I could not take my eyes off of that York Pepperming Patty box-yum.

I think you know by now that I think you are beautiful..just the way you are! My husband will say I look fine. Not in the "fine" meaning "hot"....fine meaning just boring fine! I hate that word.

Kaishon is so awesome! And baby?

Life with Kaishon said...

I want a baby. So much it borders on ridiculous. I think we might have to wait another year. Gary just isn't ready. Although, it is hard to understand how he can not be ready at the AGE OF 37 but anyway....we'll see!

Cortney said...

That Gary! Definitely in trouble! I heart Kaish!

Marilyn said...

MEN!!!~~~enough said~~~

I bet you get a good Mother's Day gift.

In fact, I would take advantage of that mess up all the way through next Mother's Day.

Don't you love it when they mess up?

Sally's World said...

why do men NEVER learn...weight comments...youth comments...totally off limits...bloody stupid...the other day i was going out to a salsa thing, i mentioned i might wear a dress i love, an oriental type thingie...and his wisdom....said "does it still fit you?" I would have buried him under the patio...but that would have been my babysitter gone!!!

Joy said...

Men I swear. Luckily mine has been with me since I was 16 so he has seen me thru all the changes and knows he has his OH so cute kids to thank for all my um shall we say unperfectness:)

Love the ice cream pic

Pam D said...

Hmm. I'm thinking that, if Gary says something like that again, there will NEVER be another baby because he will no longer have the necessary parts to help create it! heh. I love the pic of Kaishon, and oh, can I empathize on having one who is always in trouble. It does get better, and you appreciate it SO much when it finally does. There is hope...

jennykate77 said...

Ooohhh, Gary! You cruisin' for a bruisin'. Why do guys say things like that? Wait don't answer that. I already know the answer. The pic of Kaish is cute! You're cracking me up saying that you're sure he's been in trouble for something, but you just can't remember what...that's Isaiah. Poor boy. He just can't help getting in a little trouble every day.

Hope you're having a wonderful week!

Mandy, Dustin and Thomas said...

I loved your comment about “poking holes in the condoms” you are so hilarious. I seriously almost peed my pants from laughter!!! Too bad we don’t live close to each other, I would love hanging out!!! You are truly one of those “friends” that would be amazing to have in my life!!!! Maybe one day we will meet! Love ya girl!!!

Mandy, Dustin and Thomas said...

BABY BABY BABY....HA! I'm your cheering section.

newlyweds said...

Oh My, MEN!! What the hell. Anyway I just read previous commenter about the banshee, thats kind of funny, because I totally use that word also.

Rhonda said...

Oh, they are SHITS aren't they??? My hubby has done some pretty dumb-ass stuff too, over the years. Does he think that I can't see what I look like now? And remember what I used to look like before I married him and gave him children and ..... You know what I'm sayin'....

Daphine said...

Oh girl! That Gary is one BRAVE guy! WOW! Tell him that you have some strong faithful women on your side to help kick his bootie. LOL!

Cute picture of Kaishon!

And I take it that Gary is not ready for another b-a-b-y?

Busy Bee Suz said...

Kaish is so cute...I love some chocolate ice cream too.
Find an old picture of Gary, when he was thin and had hair.
Get even. :)
You can also tell him that when you were that thin you would not date him anyway!!! :) Evil, I know.

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

man - my husband would totally say something like that! he asked me last week if I wanted to learn how to use his bowflex for my stomach! WTH? I am only about 10 (well more like 15 pounds today) over weight - BUT he is like 40 pounds!

theArthurClan said...

You should be received a very, very, VERY nice Mother's Day gift now. He is in the dog house big time! Yikes!

smiles4u said...

I know how much you want another baby and I know it must be so hard to wait. I know all about husbands saying things they shouldn't. I swear they open their mouths and think after they speak. Men!!!! Cute picture!

April said...

Ok...let me just say that I think Gary should pack his bags now and head straight for the doghouse! Love the picture of Kaishon!

Cole said...

Great picture of Kaishon! I swear, that once puberty hits...the brain of men shifts to below the belt!!

big hair envy said...

Don't let that comment get to you. Men are delusional when it comes to their appearance. They see themselves as perpetual teenagers with six pack abs.......they see us as the old broads they married!!! Bwahahaha!

I need to go get an ice cream cone...

Pumpkin Delight said...

Oh, yah, totally in trouble!!

I am confused, what is Writer's Workshop? I love to do it at school, but what is it in the blogworld?

Dirtbikes and Divas said...

Gary!!!!! You should have told him you would look like that again when you are looking for your next husband!! :) Kaish with the ice cream, melts my heart!!!

Trudy said...

Oh boy...sounds like some big trouble for Gary! I find it usually works best to just shake my head and walk away since they usually don't know what they did wrong anyway.

Good luck on the'll get there!

HappyWifeHappyLife said...

Hello my darling! First of all, I am not mad at you!!! I just have ZERO free time now that I'm back at work full time and have a MISERABLE commute into Atlanta (1 hr+ each way).... so I don't get to read my favorite blogs hardly at ALL anymore. PLEASE don't take it personally!! I still LOVE YOU!!

Now, as far as Gary, I think you should SMACK him (hard!) in the side of his head for being such a dumb bunny and saying such a STUPID thing!! (Especially so close to Mother's Day!!)

At the VERY least, he owes you an amazing Mothers Day for making such a stupid thoughtless comment.

Men sometimes say stupid things.

I will tell you something. When I met my husband (when I was 17), I weighed 103. When I was 9 mos. pregnant, I weighed 183. He has never mentioned my weight. And if he ever did, I would smack the CRAP out of him!! Seriously!!

OK, now when you're done being mad at him, snuggle up to him and CONCEIVE THAT BABY!!! (That's why we keep those men-folks around after all, right?!) :)

Love you, girl!

Alicia said...


Gotta love 'em!! :)

Femin Susan said...

love the ice cream photo.

Muthering Heights said...

Ummm, he is lucky that was all you said to him!!

Kelsey said...

That story was hilarious! I don't think men will ever learn. ;)

Oh and that ice cream looked amazing. Ha!

Michelle said...

Oh my husband had better not EVER say something like that to me. I think he knows better than that though. I hope. Bad, Gary!

Banteringblonde said...

lol! A banshee is actually a spirit or ghost that screams or wails which would make sense because if you exercise like a banshee it probably makes you feel like screaming or wailing... hmmm! ;)

oh and naughty naughty man!

Liz said...

Too funny!

Mental P Mama said...

Wait. He was in bed with you after that chat? I would have thought the sofa would be too good. After all, how would there be any room for him in there with all the fat?? gah. What a knucklehead!

Nurse Nancy said...

That sounds like something my husband would say too......they really don't mean it....I think they are genetically wired to say the wrong thing.

As far as the baby thing goes, don't think about it too much. It will happen when the time is right.

mamamia said...

oh my goodness! He is in BIG trouble! I think you should sick the banshee on him!

4 Lettre Words said...

Great story! gotta love'em b/c no one else will! :o)

That pic with ice cream is great!!

Stu Pidasso said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, glad you enjoyed the poem. Gary has not given in to reality yet. That's okay. We love you girls for who you are to us, not how you look (but we love that you look good when you work at it). Find an old pic of him an ask the same thing. And a banshee is a ealic/celtic faerie, that has a loud scream. I've used it in a poem to my son. Look for "Trainride Tankas" if you want to read it.

Cheers and God bless!

H.K. said...

So, did Gary sleep on the sofa? Because I would totally tell my husband to sleep on the sofa and then I would feel sorry for him and tell him he can sleep on bed with no blankets! (LOL!)

I love the ice cream shot, you can Kaishon he LOVES ice cream!

Seini Photography said...

Is Gary and my husband related???? Ice cream yummy! Beckah, if you ever need help or have questions about photoshop let me know. I'd love to help you out in whatever way that I can. I'm not an expert but am continually learning about it. Thanks for stopping by!

Angel said...

Ypu have my sympathies, I was asked once how much I weigh so that my fiancee could compare how much he is now, vs me, and vs me in the past, I was VERY angry about that one.

Kristen@nosmallthing said...

Yow. Did he duck when you threw the pan at him? :)

I hope you get your baby...sometime soon.

Happy happy mother's day!

drewmark19 said...

I'm so understanding where you're coming from. My husband has a bikini picture of me hanging on his desk (he works from home) know, from forever ago when I had the perfect little bod. My sister saw it and couldn't understand why I didn't want to kill him. It just cracks me up that he is pining for when I was thin when the boy has put on as much weight (if not more) as I have. Hmmm...I don't remember him ever being pregnant! :)

Guess that's better than him looking at other woman. Kind of hard to be jealous of your younger self. :)

Becky said...

My husband would be in the dog house for weeks if he said that to me!! Your beautiful just the way you are!!!
