Travel Planning

Hi everyone! We are back with another comic, having now recovered from our recent trip to Taiwan.

While I love exploring new places with Mr. P, I absolutely hate the lead-up to the trip because Mr. P is pretty useless. While I spend weeks researching and carefully planning everything, he does nothing. If I assign him one task, he still manages to screw it up.

In the 15 years we’ve been together, the single most angriest moment I’ve had with him was during our honeymoon to Paris. I had taken care of every step except transportation from airport to hotel, which I asked Mr. P to take care of. In his incomplete research, he concluded the best way to get to our hotel was through the subway system. A bad idea considering this was our first time in the country, we didn’t even have the correct currency yet, and it was late at night.

So instead of an easy breezy shuttle ride that would have cost less, we went through a 3 hour ordeal trying to get to our hotel, after a 10+ hour flight. …Continue reading

Save the Mayo

Mr. P never helps me put away the groceries unless I specifically request him to. It’s frustrating to be trying to put away a week’s worth of produce and he’s literally just sitting there playing his phone games and doesn’t think to offer to help.

Apparently though, if a food product he loves is involved, he’ll actually make the effort. The man loves his mayonnaise. Sometimes I make us tuna fish salad, and he drowns his salad in the mayonnaise.

I hope everyone is having a great week. I’m excited the weekend is almost here!

Always CC the Wife

And we’re back! Sorry for the delay. Mr. P has been quite the sickling lately. Since the start of 2015, he’s gotten sick three times. The latest two occurred back to back. First, he got a cold around the middle of March, but he couldn’t seem to kick it completely for more than 2 weeks. Then we were finally able to enjoy a few blissful days of back to normal healthy days, when he got sick yet again. And this time was the worst. He got a nasty stomach virus and took me down with him. Usually a stomach virus clears up in about 3-5 days, but this particular one lasted more than a week.

But now we’re finally better and I’ve gotten extremely strict on Mr. P’s eating habits. Before, he used to point to the fact that he never got sick, so why should he listen to me about healthy eating. Now he can’t say that anymore and I think getting sick so much this year has scared him too. He’s finally eating fruit everyday, taking walks with me, and I’ve been making him chicken soup from scratch every day to boost up his immune system.

Now about this comic. Seriously, I don’t know why people tell stuff to Mr. P. It never reaches me unless you tell me too. And it’s not as if he is Mr. Responsible. He won’t RSVP, he’s not the one arranging gifts for important milestone parties we can’t attend, etc. And of course, I’m the one who gets an earful later when we’ve missed some big event that I wasn’t even aware of! Most of my male married friends have a good system of cc’ing their wives on emails if it involves get together plans. Mr. P never does that with me. I’m pretty sure I’d go nuts if I were to find out now how much Mr. P has accidentally forgotten to tell me over the years.

High School Reunion

Recently my close group of high school friends got together for a weekend. We rented a house and everything. Not everyone could make it, but there were a lot of us and it was nice to be able to spend an extended amount of time with everyone. It’s so much harder now that we live in different cities, have families, etc.

One thing I couldn’t help observing is how old we’ve all gotten. When we used to hang out, I had a midnight curfew so I always had to break up the party early. During this recent weekend together, nearly half the group was asleep before 11, with only a few of us still awake to hang out after, and even then, we didn’t make it to midnight. Happy weekend everyone!

Out of Control at Disneyworld

One constant running argument Mr. P and I have is how he will behave when I’m not around. I always worry when we’re going to be apart for several days and he gets angry that “I don’t trust him.” What I’ve been trying to get him to understand is that I’m not talking about fidelity, I’m more concerned with him acting like a kid who is left home alone for the weekend.

Really, you should see what he eats when I’m gone for a couple of days…

I recently signed up to attend a conference that conveniently took place at Disneyworld. …Continue reading

Are You Going to Wear That?

Happy Friday everyone! We’re back with another comic. It’s been really busy around here. We just returned from a trip to Orlando and are slowly recovering from all that walking.

The other day Mr. P mistook my going out clothes as my sweats/sleeping clothes. This comment coming from a guy who often goes out in free t-shirts and jackets with holes in the elbow area. I am the one that has to do an “outfit check” with him when we are going somewhere nice because otherwise he might be wearing ripped jeans and sneakers. So I found it a little ironic that he was judging my wardrobe. Especially since we were just going out to get some pizza! …Continue reading

Grocery List

So this is what happens when you send Mr. P to the grocery store unsupervised. While I am grateful that he is willing to go at all, I never know what he is going to come home with. Also, he really doesn’t have a sense of urgency. The whole point of asking him was that I needed something quick. Instead, I waited over an hour while he explored the supermarket like it was a foreign land. …Continue reading

Dance Central

Over Christmas, Mr. P got the new Xbox. We finally opened it recently. After hours of him playing his other games, he suggested we get some cardio in with the Dance Central game. Well after one song, he was wheezing on the floor, gasping for breath, and acting like he was in a lot of pain. It was only one song…and on the easiest level.

I’m also not sure how he missed almost all the moves… …Continue reading

Tricolor Mashed Cauliflower

This is a simple and tasty Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower dish featuring three colorful layers of cauliflower.

Sorry it’s been a little quiet here lately. It’s been an extremely busy start to the year and there hasn’t been time to get another comic done. So instead, I’m sharing a recipe featuring our current food obsession: cauliflower. I recently discovered how well cauliflower works as a substitute for potatoes. So far I’ve successfully made mashed cauliflower, cauliflower tots, and cauliflower buffalo wings. I’ve even made cauliflower pizza dough! …Continue reading
