    I got up early this morning and had to wait for a meeting with a sponsor. So I am setting here on the computer waiting for the time to go so I could get back home and pack up for a trip to get some bait. I have been planning a trip to get some skipjack for a week now. Needless to say I have been pretty anxious and am in need of bait.
    When out of the blue, I her a voice coming from the bedroom that says, (and I quote) " We need to get the rest of the Christmas shopping done!!!"
    WHAT?????:angry:
    I thought we were done with all of that!!!!
    (Apperently I was wrong)
    So now I sit here wondering if I am gonna ever get to go and get bait. I am still going to meet with the sponsor this morning but, other plans have gone down the tubes and, will be put off till tommorow:angry:!!!!

    Welcome to my world JW. It seems like anytime I need to get something done that I need to do, work on boat as of late. My wife finds something that needs to be done right this minute. Even if it has been needing done for six months. I mean if it has been needing fixin for six months it can wait for a little longer, can't it? :smile2: Of course I have my list of honey do's that I continue to try and whittle that list down but she keeps adding to it faster than I can get them done.:smile2: It seems like everyday for the past two weeks every time I say I am going to work on my boat, her reply is why don't you do this, why don't you do that, or we need to go do this or that.:angry::smile2:

    I feel for you brother. You better go do what she wants or she might not give you your Christmas present. LOL:smile2:

    Thanks
    David

    JW, I've been trying to find the time for over 2 months now to get over to Cumb. City for some skips. Let's see why I haven't; I work nights, keep my kids ( 3 yr. old twins ) during the day, wife works a day job, kids have been sick on and off since Halloween, and of course, the dreadful Christmas shopping to do. As Forrest Gump says, "that's all I've got to say about that"!

    JW you gotta let your woman know who is the boss :smile2:, my wife knows I hate to shop so she really doesnt ask. Sometimes when going out and we dont have the kids we may go but I cant remember anytime she has stated that "we" have some last minute shopping to do.

    Dont need a Doctor to tell me I'm nuts.:roll_eyes:
    I went shopping yesterday. It was a mad house. I'm not even going to commit on people/drivers. After fighting more traffic that I could image, looking for a parking place at mall, I finally went inside. I manage to walk through one store , turned around and had to leave. NO way. :crazy:

    I got home , it was dark, clear night had to find a way to relax. later I started me a little fire and sit outside to the wee hours of the night watching Fedex planes ( Santa ) going back and forth in the sky.:roll_eyes::smile2:

    I can't wait till I can take a walk in the woods or just sit on the bank alone. :big_smile:
    Wish I still had my boat so I could go out and sit in middle of lake.:0a22:
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    My wife just told me we got to go one last time for food and stocking stuffers. :eek:oooh:
    I'm glad I still got plenty of checks left cause the cash is gone. :wink:

    JW,
    Just thought of some ammunition for you to use. Let your wife read the above post and then ask her if she wants you to go with her.:roll_eyes: This post may be the very reason I was not invited on the shopping trip yesterday. My loving wife left me at home to get a few things done.:big_smile:

    Thanks and Merry Christmas,
    David

    Shame on you JW for not knowin what was goin on with the big holiday. LOL!


    As far as crowds go. The proper diet and some skillfully placed "BUTT BOMBS" opens paths to where ever ya need to go in a store. LOL!

    My wife and I have made a deal of sorts. I don't bother her to come fishing/hunting/tool & material shopping with me, and she extends the same courtesy to me regarding other shopping. I get my plans changed due to the kids' schedule every so often, but overall she's pretty understanding of my fishing addiction. Also, Eric is probably one of the only kids in the church choir to regularly get home at 8AM after sleeping in the boat, take a shower, an be in church looking presentable by 9. :wink:

    JW, tell your wife that that's what Internet is for. A little late now for Christmas, but given good lead time, you can get all the shopping done without fighting the crowds.

    You can get that Humminbird Side Scan right from the comfort of your easy chair...you might not look so cross next year, bro! :wink:

    JW, this is no one's fault but yours.
    I cant believe you dont do all of the Christmas shopping by yourself like THE MAN should do.
    Atleast you'll have comfort in knowing that there wont be any of these scheduling conflicts.:smile2:

    I learned a long time go the key to staying married.
    My wife does the Christmas shopping she'll spend 3 grand and I dont get nothing. Nada.
    I do it, I'll spend 800, call it a fine Christmas and I'll even have me a new toy.

    Groceries. She goes, she spends 200 dollars on not a full cart.
    I go I spend 200 bucks on 2 full carts. Of course I dont buy that giant pickle jar full of pickled pigs feet either.:big_smile:

    I spent exactly 1 hour in the mall. Spent half of my $$$ and time last minute buying the stuff my ex was supposed to get for my sons wrestling tournament.

    After that I was mad and broke, so Matt spent Saturday night and Sunday night Christmas shopping.:smile2: (I was not allowed to go :wink:)

    I think he done a fine job. He even grocery shopped. This hasn't turned out so bad after all. I can now continue to be a GRINCH, and he gets to be santa. Guess he needs to change his avatar.:smile2:
