this is going smushy sappy lovey dovey. Fair warning.

don't forget to enter.  everyone and anyone.
I've been battling this terrible cold/sinus infection this week.  And it's all in my face.  Literally.  Like, my teeth and cheeks and sinuses.  My sinuses feel like they're bleeding and I haven't been able to smell or taste now for going on four days.

That was too much information, I know.  It's like the person at funerals who takes pictures of the body, then shows them at her next book club.  Like, we sympathize, but will pass on the empathy.  Sorry about that.

So basically, I've been knocked off my feet by this cold.  I've been sleeping wonky hours with wonky dreams and I've been a good for nothing.

It's Mr Incredible's birthday and I've been a useless crank.  With no gifts to bear.  And I'm asking him to pick up his own champagne and cheesecake tonight or else we'll be eating frozen fat free cool whip with chocolate sauce.  Again.

Since I don't have a wrapped present (skiing?) and I'm too lazy to find my passport (I lost my driver's license a LONG time ago.  I've been buying booze with my passport.  But THAT picture will be for another day.)  I'll do bullet points.  Since I never quite surpassed third grade language arts that taught putting thoughts in paragraph.  Ehhhh, we all have our fortes.  And misgivings, no?

Mr Incredible:
I know I give you a hard time, nettle, tease, irk, pick on et cetera et cetera ET CET.ERA. on this blog.  Honestly, on one day of each year I will admit to you that it is probably PROBABLY me projecting my own inadequacies on you.  Yes, that's right.  I'm most like the annoying one with a bad sense of humor and maybe even a little bit of a nag.

But we're not here to focus on THAT.

Friends, if you need a lesson in love, learn in from Incredible himself.  Somehow every virtue comes alarmingly (<-- shoot I did again.) natural to him.  So men, take notes.  Women, get green.

  • He always leaves the last bite of anything that I like for me.  That's a biggie, guys.
  • If I ask for a washcloth (then get annoyed because he's taking SO LONG) he always brings it warm/hot
  • He lets me make decisions.  For a million different reasons that is love.  (I'm very indecisive)
  • He supports any decision I make, even if it's a bad one and he knows it
  • He tells me I'm not fat every time I ask, approximately three times a day.
  • Even when I'm pregnant and 200 pounds he tells me I'm beautiful (at that point I don't ask if I'm fat anymore)
  • He's got outrageously awesome work ethic.  Something unbeknownst to me.
  • He's a spectacular dad.  He built that playground for the girls with his own two hands (see below)
  • He never yells are rarely fights with me.  (even though who doesn't love drama?)
  • He likes argyle sweaters.
  • There's a million more things, but my last brain cell came out when I blew my nose.
sorry, again that was gross.

  15. lovely, to the nth degree. could he share some of that handiness with the husband? that playset is awesome.

    the husband could also use some coaxing into argyle. it's been 10 years--he still won't do it.

  16. Awww, the smushy is good too! Any guy that can build a playground from scratch is obviously Incredible! Happy birthday to your hubs :)

    P.S. measurements and weight in tomorrow...what did I just have to eat? Thai with the fat noodles, awesome

  17. Awww, you do good sap when you are sick. Mr. Incredible is lucky to have you.

    Sinus infections are the worst. I always end up with those bitches.

  18. wait. when is this water to yogurt transformation supposed to happen!? and can i borrow him?! i need manly things done around the house.... like chopping and removing the tree that fell during the last snowstorm... fixing the front door so it doesn't get stuck anymore.... figuring out my damned wireless. reaching the top shelf. I'll only need him til Orlando gets back.


    Apartment in Shambles.

  19. Happy birthday to Mr.Incredible! :)

  20. Happy belated Birthday Mr. I!

  21. Happy Birthday, Mr. Incredible! the last bite thing IS a big deal. It's one of the sweetest things someone could do for me!

    I hope you're feeling better...Sinus stuff is no fun.

  22. Aww this is so sweet! I love the cool whip with chocolate! I have SO done this to my hubby, and he sweetly smiles and says he loves
