Live Blogging From The Guest Bed



I just sat down on the bed, next to my half-asleep husband. He smiled and opened his arms to hug me....until he noticed the laptop in my hands.

"Baby, stop. You want to nap with me."

"I know, I do. But I need to write a blog post."

"No! Just put the laptop down, Helena."

"Dude, I haven't blogged since before Christmas....No, since before we left for Christmas!"

"Good. Come live in the real world. Where there is sleep. And napping."

"Kurt, I just need to...ooomph!"

He hooked me with one arm, and pulled me backwards towards the pillows. I reached frantically for the laptop.

"No. Come nap."

He dragged me away, but as I tumbled backwards, I managed to keep a hold on the keyboard.

"Wait!"

"The laptop is not invited! This is not a threesome!"

"I need to blog Kurt! Don't make me choose!"

...and that's where we are right now. We are all tangled up on the bed, and I am typing with two fingers.

Best.Nap.Ever.

I'm in awe of how you managed to avoid typos amid the struggle. Guys try to drag me away from the keyboard while I write. They get black eyes.

I take my writing seriously. bitches! (Still manage a typo per post with my full attention to it, though...)

Helena said...

My two fingers are very dexterous. Also, it was a very slow process. I have to time my keystrokes to his snores.

Don't make me choose!

It's like Sophie's Choice.

Only more relevant to modern society.

Renegades said...

Wow a threesome post and so close to after Christmas. :0

Kimberly said...

Naps are overrated. Just ask my toddler ;)

YOu should try blogging from your phone. It's smaller, less noticeable, easier to sneak along with you.

But it does have a tendency to get lost in the sheets

Babes Mami said...

Hilarious! Don't make me choose!! Silly husband!

Gosfam said...

I always choose blogging over napping. However, I am unable to nap with my hubby anymore due to children :) Take advantage of it girl and blog fast--lol!!

ha, I kind of chose napping over blogging during my lunch break today...did I mention I was at my desk in my office? Yeah, I could use a longer nap...

Untypically Jia said...

Mmmm.... nap sounds good. Course I got three hours of sleep last night (non consecutive).

Jen said...

You need to get your hubby a lap top of his very own. Then you can both blog/compute from bed together. Its awesome.

Smart Ass Sara said...

Matt knows he'd probably lose. Mostly because he farts, drools, and snores all while sleeping. And about 75% of it happens on me or my face. So there really isn't a choice.

I think that's the best post-holiday blog post I've read so far! He just doesn't know how much we need your humor right now...

The screen on my laptop broke, and my husband is putting off getting it fixed because he likes naps too :( They just don't understand.

Shell said...

My laptop is my boyfriend. Who usually wins over the husband.

I'm so glad that you're back! Even if you do only have two fingers ;)

Kristy said...

Success! You have blogged! Isn't it funny how compelling the need is?!

JeanHasBeenShopping said...

You are so cute! I hope you enjoyed that nap.

Amanda said...

I'm with Shell here, my laptop is totally my boyfriend and my boyfriend WINS over my husband!

Hehe, so cute. My husband does that to me sometimes too. "Step away from the laptop/ipad/blackberry and come join me in the real world." You two sound adorable.

Stopping by from Sits!

Mushy, and I like it. I like that with all the stress going on of daily life, you still hang on to each other.

I love that.
