I'll be the first to admit that I've been feeling uninspired lately and haven't been in the mood to write about anything. I think I just had a case of the "lazies" and I'm pretty sure I caught it from my husband. He's been on leave for the last few weeks and since I haven't started working yet and we're still getting settled in, we don't have a lot spending money to go out and do much. Consequently, I have felt like pulling my hair out some days and realize how much I need to start working. Sitting at home every day is definitely not for me...don't get me wrong, I enjoy sleeping in and having the luxury of spending my time how I please, but you can only sit inside your house for so long without going stir crazy.
Today started off bumpy and I'll admit I was more than a tad annoyed with my husband...you see he's been cheating on me....thats right, but not with another woman. Oh no....its much worse than that...he's been cheating with his xbox! Since the day he bought that darn contraption he has been GLUED to the TV and I think he even left an indent in our new couch cushion. Its that bad people....I had to go so far as to bribe him with food and threaten him that I would beat him with my flip flops in order to get him to turn off the game. (Does that make me a bad wife? lol) It was all I could come up with because unfortunately being "nice" and begging and pleading was getting me nowhere. I guess sometimes you just have to be the bad guy, or in my case the "beyotch."
This leads me to wonder, what is it about video games and men in their teens and 20's that gets them so addicted to these stupid games? What makes me more mad than having to deal with this, is that there are so many other women who say their husbands/bfs do the exact same thing as my husband. It wouldn't be so bad if he only played for a bit and did so quietly, but its all the shooting, the blaring tv, and the cussing and yelling at his buddies that he's playing online with that I really can't stand. Not to mention sitting around watching my husband play video games ALL DAY, is not my idea of a good time. I understand he just came home last month and he deserves time to relax, but this is getting ridiculous.
Today we had a talk about it and we finally set some ground rules about the xbox. So hopefully from now on things will be better and I won't want to smack my husband upside the head every time I see him playing a video game. He has promised to only play for two hours max and to try and be more quite when he does. We'll see how long it lasts, but I will say this....If things don't get better quick and stay that way, I have a feeling that his new "Halo Reach" game will be disappearing into oblivion. ;) I'm very serious about this....No more Mrs. Nice Guy!
