my thoughts on motherhood, kids, books and stuff

Instant Messaging In 12 Sq Feet of Space

Is it sad or does it just say a lot about our interests that Brett and I sit in the same room most nights, about five feet apart, on our own computers and INSTANT MESSAGE!  We face opposite walls so we can’t see each other without turning around.  Brett usually has his headphones on so he can listen to his classic rock and I have something or other playing on my speakers. 

"Wanna watch Lost?"

"Sure, give me 5 to finish blog"


"will you grab me a cfdc (caffeine free diet coke) if you go out to the garage?"

"If you check on the kids when you are done"


Seriously.  We are nerds.  Our poor kids.

    That is great! I would like to say that Brett made me a nerd after I married him, but then I have to remind myself that we met at COMDEX in Vegas. It doesn’t get any nerdier than that.

    see, you are a nerd in your own right. i like to refer to myself as a geek by association! =)

    It’s true! I can now feel good about it. I have come to terms with it and decided being a nerd isn’t all bad.
