Poker Night... guys Night IN

Tonight, hubby was invited to a Guys Night In to play poker... yes, my anti-social hubby was to go to a Poker Night.  I think I kinda forced him to go b/c I knew if it was up to him, he'd have stayed home, watched TV and gone to bed.  But, I forced it on him and now it's almost midnight and he isn't home yet. Hmmmmmmm..... wonder if he's having a good time.  LOL

This is a very odd thing that happens in this house.  Hubby is always the 'one' at home and I'm always the one going out and hanging with friends.  I'm glad he's gone out and is being social.  He does need it and if I had to push him out the door than so be it.  My hubby is a homebody, you know??  He's very content to stay here and catch up on his 'deer' shows and sports and stuff.  I'm not.  I like to hang out with people and chew the shit with my 'women' friends.  We used to be pretty social people when we were dating and newly married.

Having a house and kids makes the funds for 'socializing' pretty slim.  So, generally, I am the one to head out of the house at night and hang out with friends.  I enjoy company and these days I tend to need to GET OUT of this house.  Most days I feel like the walls are closing in around me and graciously accept the invites to get out, you know??  Every room in this house is so cluttered and messy it's driving me crazy!!  Thank goodness I'm not sleeping in my bedroom b/c I don't think I could handle the clutter up there even while I'm sleeping!!  The playroom is a constant upkeep (thanks Franny Girl and the rest of them) but I can generally keep my living room pretty clean.  I have this need to pick up everything around me before I go to sleep.  Well, except for tonight b/c Franny was asleep when I got home and I just didn't have the extra energy.  And so, I will most likely not sleep well knowing there are toys on the floor and there is a basket of unfolded clean clothes on the other couch, but I guess that's ok.  Ugh, I think I have a load of laundry in the washer from yesterday... One of these days my washer/dryer will be on the same floor and that might not happen as often.  But, alas, I have come to accept the fact that some loads of laundry will have to be re-washed several times before they make it to the dryer:)  ha ha

Tomorrow, we clean!!  I hope:)  We have CCD in the morning and Kyra has rehearsal 'til 1:30... but after that we are free and clear.  I was going to try and get to BJ's and Walmart (our family portrait is in) but I'm not sure that's going to happen.  Wonder what hubby is going to do in the morning as far as hunting.  His last words to me before he left- I'm not going to stay late so I'll see you soon.    ha ha ha   Guess he's having too much fun!!  I hear our neighbor is kicking some serious ass but I guess I'll hear all about it later!!

I think the next step is Girls Poker Night!  ha ha

OK- here's a good hubby thing for today- He did do the dishes this morning:)  thanks!!
