Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Hubsterisms~ Part 1

Maybe it's just mine. For some reason my Hubster says things that I know straight up need to be translated. He swears he means what he says but...nope. Here are a few of the things he frequently says...and what they really mean.

I need to run to the office (on a weekend). I should be back in an hour. Hour and a half tops.
what he really means
Don't expect to see me for a minimum of 3 hours. It will really be more like 4.

Do you really think that looks good? (talking about daughter's hair)
what he really means
I think that looks like crap and really wish you'd do something else to her hair. I'd do it but I have no idea how.

I'll get up with the kids if you want to sleep in tomorrow.
what he really means
I don't mind moving my sleeping down to the couch. The kids may still come get you for juice or breakfast (since I'll be sleeping) but you can stay in bed.

This is all meant to be in fun. Hubster knows all these translations to be true, though he'll deny it. He's very concerned with image and always looking his best. I don't have that problem. I can go to the grocery store in my yoga pants, no make-up, with my hair messily pulled back. I like to have fun with Puddin' Pops hair. We're growing out her bangs and I often put a scrunchy right on the top of her head. Hubster hates it. I admit, I do get pleasure doing this. He's the worrier who would obtain mechanical breakdown insurance on everything we owned. I'm a go-with-flow kind of girl. Sometimes quite opposites, we make it work.

What are some of your other halfs 'isms? You know you've (they've) got some.


  1. Your Hubster and I must have went to the same school according to Shirley.

  2. My hubby is a bit of workaholic so I relate to the multiple hours.

    I tend to be the one that doesn't go places without being properly dressed, while he thinks blue jeans work in all occasions. But, that's probably because he wears a suit to work almost everyday, tie etc. Jeans to me are for working in the garden and mowing the yard. For the first time every, I bought some nice jeans for going out. Not really used to dressing up in jeans; but seems I'm out numbered. I don't own a pair of work out pants...but then I don't work out so quess I don't need them. Or maybe I need to work out. lol


  3. Joe~ Tell Shirley I'm sorry:)

    Sandy~ Really? I guess it's good that you like to "get ready" to go out. I just would have never guessed that with your lack of the shopping gene:) Just goes to show what little I know.

  4. Its all in the mind. I get worried about stuff too, you just have to tell yourself theres nothing you can do, and just crush the thoughts you have. This might not work for you, but what I do is imagine I'm taking the thing thats bothering me, that thought, and stuffing it into a box or a safe, locking it, and putting it far away in the back of my mind. Try things like meditation as well, you just need to condition yourself not to think about things too much. If you believe in God, you could try praying about it and then just letting it go.


Thanks for stopping by. Let me know you were here.
