Happy Mothers Day to me!

OK, this is going to be one of those stories that just makes you shake your head and say "Amen, sister!"
Maybe, or maybe you will be one of those people with the "Perfect" husband.
Just let me know at the end, will you, I'd like to know if I should go ahead and start looking now.
Anyway, last night, while it was raining and storming, I decided to go to Bible study like I do most Wednesday nights.
Mr. Wonderful hadn't been home from work for very long when I said I was leaving so we didn't really get to talk that much to each other before I left.

Bible study was great by the way, we are finishing up the Purpose Driven Life, which is what I was going to talk about until this came up.

OK, let me set the scene here. I have been asking for a Kitchenaid Mixer for a while now, (that means for at least 6 months.) So when we were out shopping for new dishes for my kitchen, (I've had the same set for a long time, they were chipped, etc.) I saw a refurbished Kitchenaid mixer.
It was $189. I know that isn't cheap, but again, I have wanted one for a LONG time. So, in the store, I told Mr. Wonderful, get me one of those for Mothers Day.
I even picked out the color I wanted. Black, or Grey, in case you were wondering.
So, that's it, the other day he says "Do you really want a mixer for Mothers Day?"
Me: Yes! (Notice the exclamation, that means I really want it.)

So last night I get in from Bible study, begin to fix my plate for supper, and Mr. Wonderful looks at me and says, "Can we wait on the mixer?"

Did you hear that?

I think I stood there for a minute shocked, and ticked off, then I said, "Sure."

Sure, I mean it's only Mothers Day!

Well, after that, I am sure because he knew what a stupid thing he just did, he wanted to do a little arguing. I mean as long as he's just told me I'm not getting what I want let's just see how mad he can make me, right?
So, he gets mad, (like it's my fault), and says "I'll just go buy 10 of them tomorrow!"
Then he proceeds to rant and rave about all he does!
He cooks! Well, that's because he likes to cook.
The kids don't talk to me! They are teenagers. Listen to you!
He can't do everything! Welcome to my world!!!!!!

Meanwhile, I am thinking, what are we waiting for? Is there some BIG thing coming up that I don't know about? I'm not aware of any big thing going on, but sometimes, he has a tendency to plan things that I may not find out about until a later date.

Also, keep in mind, if there is something HE wants, he pretty much gets it.

We usually discuss purchases. We began doing this after a purchase he made without discussing it with me.
You're going to love this, guess what his purchase was that he just had to have!

Ready? Flowmasters.

For anyone who isn't familiar with Flowmasters, they are mufflers! That's right people, and not just any muffler.
$700 mufflers!
Because on a truck, you really, really need those. To be cool!!!
And he is so cool!

So after that fiasco, you can bet he didn't do anything like that again.

OK, so I have been thinking about it, stewing over it really, and deciding, what should I do?

Should I go and get it myself if he doesn't get it, or just let it go.
I am thinking about getting it, and any freaking thing else I want!!!

Leave it to a man to ruin a perfectly fine evening. I mean I was trying to be as nice as possible, remember I just got home from church.
Believe me, I could have put up just as good a fight as he did. But I was trying to be a christian about it.

Quit laughing!!!!

So what would you do?


  1. Monday morning, after Mother's Day, you leave work and go get you that mixer. Go home, take it out of the box, sit it on your counter and have the best Mother's Day ever.

    And then when Father's Day comes.....................................

  2. holy cow.that's hard.i would probably wait till after mother's day just in case he's pulling your chain.but then, i'd start saving.just taking $50-$75 out of the checking accout and putting it in an envelope.then, next month, you can go get your mixer.OR, just don't buy groceries for a week or two.use what you have in the pantry.we do that some weeks and save a lot of money.then use the money in your grocery envelope to buy the mixer....


    ironic ;)

    i have a not-so-mr.wonderful some days too. but i guess mine puts up with a definitely-not-mrs.wonderful some days.

  3. I would definitely be getting me that mixer! What in the world is he thinking! I could give you some more advice but maybe the blog page isn't the place for it, if you know what I mean.
