Last night Chris and I watched twelve (12) episodes of The Office from last season. I had forgotten how funny Chris finds that show. He laughs so hard. He loves the Narddog. And man, I sure do love to watch my husband laugh. It is one of my favoritest things in the world.

The nice thing about entwining on the couch and watching twelve (12) episodes of something in a row is that if it's generally good, then you don't notice the weak eps as much. Some were a little too cheesy and not enough absurd, but you almost don't even notice if you're not paying attention. And I'm a consumer, not a critic, so I shouldn't be TRYING to pick up on that stuff. So I won't.


Last year I complained bitterly about the cold. Bitterly. Most specifically about the cold in my house. Chris can deal with it being a lot colder than I can, and hoo boy did I have problems with that last year. This year it's not so bad. Maybe I'm just in a better mood? I don't know why I would be. But I come home and it's cold in the house, and who cares? I just make a fire. We haven't turned on our heat yet, and I don't know when we will. We're all wood-powered, baby. It's nice.

What I need, though, is a TV in the den. So that I never have to leave that room.


Last night Chris confided that he had never slept overnight in our bed by himself. (Er, the implication was that he never had anyone else accompany him, either.) It's only happened a handful of times in the past year, but I guess he's always fallen asleep on the couch (as he does almost every night anyway), and never gets up and moves back to our bedroom. He says it's too cold and lonely in there without me. I think he thought I would think that was cute/sweet, and it sort of is, but I am a big fan of being comfortable, so I always sleep in the bed when I'm alone. It warms up eventually. And has sheets.

Watching someone else laugh IS one of the best things.

How cold is it over there? I turned on the heat for the first time a couple days ago. But today it's like sixty.

Man, the bed gets MORE comfortable when nobody else is in it!!

Good solid entry.

It hasn't gotten too too cold yet . . . but there's frost on the grass sometimes in the mornings. Highs in the fifties, lows in the thirties? Something like that. It was actually below 60 in the house the other day when I got home. I fixed it.

We like snuggling! With other dudes we'd always end up on opposite sides of the bed, but Chris and I are such good sleepers that we fall asleep spoonin', and wake up that way too. We have a full bed in the master bedroom, and a queen in the guest bedroom, because we have no need for all that room.

The cold is the awful
Oh, the cold has just started...and maybe you're still warmed inside by honeymooning.

Chris sleeping on the couch when he's alone makes me think that's a guy thing. Do dudes really like/use sheets? I mean, unless a woman insists?

Re: The cold is the awful
I dislike attributing particular things to men or to women, actually . . . are you saying you think most dudes would like to sleep on a bare mattress? I'd have to disagree with that.

Re: The cold is the awful
Oh, I was just trying to stir things up. Most of the single guys I know/have known prefer to sleep without a top sheet (but they do have a bottom sheet). For them, it tends to get kicked down to the end of the bed anyway. Anyway, my sample size is too small to be definitive.
