Recently Overheard in the Krieger-Jackson Household ...

Backstory: the new computer came with two alien stickers exactly the right size to cover the Dell logos on our laptops.

Me: Oh, you put your little alien head on!

Him: Yes, I did that earlier today.

Me: checks laptop You didn't do mine, though.

Him: I thought you would want to do that yourself.

Me: Well, that's tricky

Him: How so?

Me: If you'd put it on for me, I would have been mad at you because I wanted to do it myself. Since you didn't put it on for me, now I am mad at you for not doing it.

Him: ::sigh:: I'm never going to be able to win, am I?

Me: Not a chance.

Life's a beach. Scrapbook it.

  2. They do the same to us sometimes! Poor Mr. Lifeguard! You should make him feel better by telling him he is not alone - all husbands have it rough!

  3. That is funny! I would be mad if Brian put it on instead of waiting for me. Poor Mr. Lifeguard!

  4. hello! i just discovered your youtube scrapbooking videos today! i LOVE them!! i'm 24wks pregnant and on mandatory bedrest at a hospital til i deliver. i LOVE LOVE to scrapbook but never went beyond 8x8 or 12x12. i discovered your step by step mini albums series and have been watching them and wish i could be on bedrest at home so i can be in my scrapbook room! i'm extremely inspired by your mini albums! you make it look so simple to put together and in the end...it looks like a masterpiece! wish i could run home and put one together now. :)

  5. Hahaha - this sounds as if someone were listening in on conversations between my husband and me - at least I don't feel so bad now :D Your husband sousnds like he knows you pretty well and I am fortunate that I am married to someone who understands me as well. That is not always a good thing for me, though. ~:(

  6. Yes, all husbands have it tough! But wives don't always have it so easy, either. At least I am honest about his chances & he knows the drill pretty well by now ~ LOL! :D Although, Lois is right ~ it's not always a good thing when your husbands know you.

    Purpledaisy, thank you so much for your kind comments about my YouTube videos! I just wanted to let you know that I also have a live UStream show three times a week that you might find entertaining while you are in the hospital. Times are in the "Watch me live!" box on the right sidebar. There's also recorded videos there, too.

    ~Kathryn :D
