It's 12:43am Do You Know Where Your Chocolate Chip Cookies Are?

*Disclaimer* This is not me at my best and I DO see how wrong my behavior is. I may even get in trouble from my husband for posting this, but here it is ~ me in all my lovingchristianwifeness in the middle of the night.
Here's the backstory... I had shared my chocolate chip cookies with my husband some time back and asked only that he leave me 4 for just that time that I would need them. Just before that time came, he ate them.
The following is an excerpt from the IM conversation I just had with HisGirl
S4J: sadly
S4J: so sadly
S4J: I am still awake
HisGirl: so sadly?
HisGirl: I am so sorry
S4J: I did the wrong thing
S4J: again
S4J: partially out of spite
S4J: again
HisGirl: oh no
HisGirl: not spite
S4J: I found something chocolate-ey
HisGirl: you did?
S4J: and mocha-ey
HisGirl: ick
S4J: and I knew it would be caffeine-ey
S4J: and I drank it anyway
S4J: because I was mad
S4J: and desperate
HisGirl: man.
S4J: I'm so pleasant to be around.
S4J: and, somehow, I managed to let hubby know that all of these things were his fault
HisGirl: oh good
S4J: yes
HisGirl: bet he feels all warm and full of love
S4J: he actually said, "Isn't that loaded with caffeine?"(or something to that effect)
HisGirl: uh oh
S4J: me = yes! BUT IT'S THE ONLY CHOCOLATE I COULD FIND IN THE ENTIRE HOUSE SINCE YOU TOOK MY ONLY OTHER OPTION
S4J: and then he actually said
HisGirl: why did he eat ALL FOUR
S4J: (I'm sayin)
S4J: "Did you just use that mochachocolatemilk to swallow a sleeping pill?"
HisGirl: hahahahahahaaha
HisGirl: lmbo
S4J: "Why did you take a sleeping pill??"
HisGirl: rotfl
S4J: me = WELL GEE, HONEY, LOVE OF MY LIFE, MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE YOU MAKE ME FEEL LIKE TOTAL TOE-LINT BECAUSE I STAY UP LATER THAN YOU
HisGirl: oh no
HisGirl: this is not going well
S4J: me = YOU WANT ME TO GO TO SLEEP WHEN YOU GO TO SLEEP AND IF I DON'T YOU COMPLAIN
S4J: me = YOU WANT ME TO BE NICE AND YOU EAT MY LAST PIECE OF WHATEVER I AM SAVING AND YOU DO NOT REPLACE IT
HisGirl: oh dear.
S4J: AND THEN YOU BADGER ME WHEN I TRY TO FIND A REPLACEMENT FOR MYSELF
HisGirl: oh dear
S4J: so, of course, what is my only respite?
HisGirl: is it wrong that you are making me laugh?
S4J: I be stupid and spiteful
S4J: and now, who is suffering?
HisGirl: you.
S4J: not the man
S4J: he is asleep
S4J: with a full belly of chocolate chips
HisGirl: oh no
S4J: maybe tomorrow's post will be a copy/paste of THIS im conversation
HisGirl: haha

I am tired. I am going to try again to go to sleep so I can get up in 5 hours to go to church and be holy in front of the whole congregation.

somehow, I think the person who does not come off well here is me...

haha.

oh sis, I love that you notice when you behave badly, and fix it. you are growing, and doing well... and I really admire the amazing person God is growing into... even after little diversions such as the moment that foreverforth shall be known as the "great chocolate chip kerfuffle of 2008"

About the time you were writing this, I was finishing up sniffling back the tears as I ended the day (very early morning) badly with my oldest. I'm *trying* to make our last few days together the best and very memorable. It was after midnight. I needed sleep to face 100 6th graders today. And he had the Olympics up very loudly. So I yelled from my room to turn it down. He slammed down the laptop lid (don't mess with my 'puter!!) and his bedroom door, too. So I went down there to give a lesson in respect for others in the house, thinking it would transfer to how he'd treat those in the college dorm. Live and learn though, eh.

Anyway. There's something very right about not feeding Gremlins after midnight. It does strange things to us. I mean, them.

Chocolate is a food group. That was free.

I hate when that happens! Both when all the cookies are gone and when I get all grumpy at hubby. :)

p.s. I have an award for you over at my place.

As Dr. Phil would say..."So how did that work for you?" :)

Oh, S4J...I so feel you. I do.

I've been known to go on the hunt for just that right fix...I have.

hang in there, babe.

This is hilarious in the sense that my son and I just had a similar incident that ended in him having shiny-big-sad-puppy-eyes at me.

Sammie wanted a cookie, so I said we'd all have some because chocolate chip cookies was a GREAT idea. I grabbed the package out of the cabinet and immediately knew something was wrong. Upon peeling back the convenient easy-to-open-for-cookie-emergencies top and found two cookies and a chocolate chip inside.

Mind you I had just bought these cookies.
For me.
AND had bought him his OWN cookies.
Which he has only eaten one PACK of, in addition to my entire container of cookies.

Oh well, that's what the emergency chocolate stash is for, right? I suggest you always have backup. Get some Ziploc baggies and hide some cookies in your tampon box or something. HAHA!

Love you!
See you tomorrow morning!
YAY! :D

Don't stress over it. This is where women frickin' wear me out. Say you're sorry, seek forgiveness, and get on down that road. Lord knows your hubby did, like, two seconds after it happened, most likely. :)

BTW, you need to check out the photography at this site:

She makes even a glass of iced tea look like a work of art. How'd she do that?!?

Sounds like a hormone-laden moment to me...So glad you have a friend/sis like His Girl to share such moments. Lord knows hubby would not understand the agony. I do...but Hubby wouldn't!!! Blessings! Hope you feel better tomorrow!!!
