Getting Organized


Confused about our upcoming joint-family trip, I called our friend to confirm the dates.


"What nights are we going to the beach again?" I asked him.

He told me, then asked,


"Why? What's going on? You guys can still go, right?"


"Yes, yes, we can still go, of course. K and I are just sitting here at our desks with our blackberries and our calendars doing a little family planning... you know, getting ready to HAVE SEX."

Encapsulated in a split second, I saw the complete performance of a one act play on K's face.

First, I saw his total shock, then his mortified embarrassment and, finally, a shrug of acceptance and resignation.

He married a shameless clown with no boundaries.

What can he do?

Meanwhile our friend, knowing the two of us and our propensity to be overly organized, control freaks roared with laughter.


"That WOULD be foreplay in YOUR house!" he laughed.

Oh... oh... oh... you. are. so. ORGANIZED, BAY-BEEEEEEEEEEE! YES!

So if the hubby was to, say clean the house with the park ranger costume on, the kids better not be home?

That's funny. My husband is the same way. He loves it when I'm making out a list.

So "the big O" has more then one meaning in your house? Hysterical!

With everything that goes on there, putting it on the calendar seems like a good idea.

Amy said...

Sometimes, I see that look on my husbands face. Fun to watch then re-realize how nutty we are!

I'm sorry - I can't think of anything witty to say - these comments are as funny as the post!

Little Nut Tree said...

funny - we were just saying yesterday evening that we needed a hubba hubba calendar :)

Gingers Mom said...

That's hot. I think being organized would make me randy too. Which probably explains alot as I look around at the squalor that we are living in and our recent lack of matress jumping. :)

slackermommy said...

The best sexcations are the most organized.

TEOM said...

Whaaat? I don't get it. Is there anything sexier than organizing?

Sayre said...

Once you've organized yourself a spare minute, come visit my blog. I have a little present for you, my oldest bloggy friend.

flutter said...

all your calendar talk got me going.

Deb said...

LOL... I fear that's probably what constitutes foreplay in our house, too. That and the line, "Wanna fool around?"

Cassey said...

Oh, I can hardly breathe! Too funny.

Velveteen Mind Megan said...

Beach? Are you coming to Gulfport to wade in the sludge?

I know beaches. I will find you.

(...tired of stalking Bossy because it takes too much gas, I am now going to stalk you. 'kay? Fab.)

THE MOM BOMB said...

Can Blackberries be used as sex toys?

Oh, I am so sick.

Above Average Joe said...

Do your sex toys include day planners and label makers?

Grim Reality Girl said...

When my kids were babies I explained to Hubby that changing dirty diapers counted as foreplay... Perhaps I need to clue him in on organization as foreplay.... yes, Yes! YES!

the mama bird diaries said...

you are a funny mummy. Cute post.

Scout's Honor said...

What a perfect way to get your husband. Actaully, i'm the prude and my husband would be the one to say stuf flike that to embarass me.

As for the PDAs, my husband constantly sends me appointment and emails--even when I am nary 3 feet away. I'll tell him something and he'll ask me to send it in an email so he doesn't forget. Gah! Mybe if he listened int he first place...

urban-urchin said...

OMG- William just made me pee my pants a little....

Kyla said...

Wendy said...

since I am married to a non-planning unorganized wing-it kind of guy, the virgo in me is totally turned on by this!

Redneck Mommy said...

Damn, I wanna live with you guys.

My husband is the King of Disorganization.

Bugger. I keep telling him the Big O begins with him getting organized, he keeps waggling his eyebrows and ignoring me.
