The One with the Free Porn

Both my boys love Metallica’s song, Sad But True. Neither my husband or myself are huge fans of Metallica but Rob does have their CD and I do enjoy a few of their songs for running (uh, when I run-like, it’s been awhile). It just so happened that Rob had this song on a few times when he picked the boys up and next thing I know Gavin is requesting it every single time he’s in the car. He is in the car with me twice a day for about 30 minutes and during that time we listen to the following on repeat and always in this order: Sad But True, Bellas Finals: Price Tag/Don’t You (Forget About Me)/Give Me Everything/Just The Way You Are/party in the U.S.A/Turn The Beat Around, and Another One Bites the Dust. That middle song is from Pitch Perfect so it’s a mashup, that’s why the long title. I love this time with him even though it’s only 7:30 a.m. and he needs it the loudest it can go. But I love that he knows the words and that he just randomly shouts out the correct word during Another One Bites the Dust but not at the correct time. I also love that his favorite part to the mashup is “Hands up!” And our hands go up, as they should. I love him.

I love my husband for a lot of reasons but the other day he said something that made my heart swoon. We were watching a show together and in the show this mom leaves her daughter for a week to go on a trip she had won from a radio show. As the mom is hugging her daughter goodbye Rob says, “I could never leave our kids for a week. They would grow so much and I don’t want to miss that.” I died a little because although we’ve never discussed it, I feel the exact same way. I certainly don’t mean to sound like if you DO go on vacation for a week away from your kids that you are a bad parent. I already get homesick easily so it’s not a surprise that I would feel this way. Rob has always talked about what we would do with our kids on vacations and is not a go lay on the beach type of vacationer but to hear his reason why…just made me happy. I learned later that once he left his cat for 4 days to go plan in a hockey tournament…when he left the cat was more of a kitten and when he returned the cat was enormous and all grown up. This has always stuck with him. I was surprised by all of this cat story because he’s allergic to cats. I also love him for being allergic to cats because I don’ like cats so when our kids want a cat, we can say, “Daddy is allergic to cats.” End. Of. Story.

Last night in my finance class my professor was lecturing on the financial timeline. This included the economic downturn for businesses in Europe after WW2. One of those businesses was Toblerone Chocolates. I KNOW THAT! I know that because it’s on the Friends episode, “The One with the Free Porn.” I didn’t know that the chocolate business had a struggling time but I did know it was European and see? I am smart. I remember stuff. And! TV is not too terribly awful. When I was a child my dad nicknamed me, The Walking TV Guide. I used to like to read the TV Guide and I also like to watch a lot of TV and now….well now I still love TV but it’s not a huge priority to me over say…reading a book or going outside. My kids also love TV and I fear Gavin may have inherited my amazing addiction to it but he also chooses outside over TV so for now, I’m not too worried. I would actually rather get rid of TV altogether and only watch shows through Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Instant Video but I’m in a house with 3 boys and sports are kind of important. I don’t think we could do it. But every time I scroll through the guide and there’s nothing on AGAIN and I’m paying a bill almost as much as my car payment, I want to scream! I’m paying the same price for something that can get me to Florida and back as I am for something that can only show me a picture of Florida. Hmmm.
