Scene: Our bedroom. 11pm. Husband is in bed lying in the dark. I walk into the room. Placing one knee on my side of the bed, I lean over to where he's lying and kiss him on the cheek.

Me: Goodnight, babe.

(Huband shifts towards me with an obvious interest in "cuddling" and gives me another kiss. I let him kiss me and then pull back, moving off the bed.)

Him: I thought you were coming to bed??

Me: No, I was just coming to say goodnight to you.

Him (annoyed): Well, where are you going?

Me: I'm just gonna get on the Internet for a little while.

Him: The Internet?? It's 11pm!

Me : I know. I'm not going to be that long. I just want to read a few blogs.

Him: *sighing*

Me: I'll just be a little while. I swear. (*lying through teeth*)

(Me: heading out of the room...)

Him: Junkie.


Well, I've said it before. Blogging IS a lot like doing drugs. So, um, anyone wanna do a line with me?

I have to sneak all my internet time in when Hubs isn't home. Luckily he is gone alot. Yeah for me. Next time you might want to skip the good night kiss.

Yeah... I know the feeling...
My husband does not even know that I have a blog... want to keep it totally my secret...
It does sound a bit like a coke habit...oooowwwww

LOL! I'm a blogging junkie too! I'm so addicted to reading other people's blogs and commenting that I'm often up until 3am doing it - and then I can't figure out why I'm so tired all of the time... It works out good for me that Jake works nights 6 days a week...

Blogger Jodi said...

UMMMM yeah. I have this problem too. Just yesterday I was reading blogs before work and my husband says, "Jodi, it's 7:30, don't you think you better get ready?" I'm like yeah, yeah, yeah, as I wave him off with my hand. Hubby says to youngest son, "you see mommy over there hunched over that computer? That's called Mommy's C-O-C-A-I-N-E. And it's BAD. And it'll probably maime and disfigure her." I was like HMMMFPHFFF. Leave me ALONE! I do NOT have a problem, okay maybe I do, but it makes me happy, so LEAVE ME ALONE! :)

Good ammunition here for me - my hubby thinks my addiction is out of control because I'm up past 11:30 (never mind that he's spending the same time play-testing Versus - and don't ask what that is, because I really don't know).

I'm a junkie too. Whenever I'm trying to do some serious work on the computer I have to disconnect my internet connection.

Manic Mom: what sex life? he he

Dawn, Jenny, Baby and Mom: ok, i'm cutting up the coke and handing you a straw

Les: true, the goodnight kiss is a bit of a tease!

Pendullum: i've heard a lot of people keep their blogs secret from their hubbies. I'm somewhere in the middle. Hubby knows I have a blog, but I have not given him the web address as he has threatened to leave me trollish comments.

Undercover Angel: 3am?! OK I don't feel so bad anymore. LOL :)

Jodi: LMAO. I can totally relate. I almost missed a hair appointment yesterday b/c I was blogging and left the house late.

Bubandpie: Uh, so what IS Versus?? :)

Metromama: Good tip! I am going to have to start unplugging my modem.

I'm, erm, *crack*ing up over your post.

sorry. I'm extra-punny when I'm stressed out.

I'm stressed out because I haven't purchased a father's day gift yet -- not even a *card* -- because of the blogoine.

that's bad.

yeah. my hubby diesn't get it either. but seeing as we are the only married couple and th eonly couple with a baby under 1 (or baby in general) and I stay home with said Nut, well, the blogs make me remember that I am not alone with joys and owes.

hand me the straw, i'm a junkie. LOL

I think it is just starting for me. I only read about 8 blogs right now. I am getting hooked I can feel it.

My husband and I work opposite shifts to avoid daycare for our 3 children and so my computer time is endless.

I work in the ER and it is slow right now so I am doing my bloggin. How fun is this to get paid to do it ladies?

Oh man. Sounds like me, except I'm backing out of the room, slowly, slowly... "I can't sleep, honey, I'm going to go lie down in the basement." And then it's all over.

Every time my husband sees me reading blogs he says "hitting the pipe again, babe?" To make it up to him I spent an hour and 1/2 trying to figure out how to make a banner for his blog. I don't think he feels very appreciative.

I have been in a treatment center the last few weeks for my blogaddiction...just now easing back into it =) Why not start an online blog chapter called Bloggers Anon?? Then when our significan others complain, we can honestly say we're going to a "meeting"

Blogger carrie said...

I think someone transplanted our brains. My husband will be so relieved that he's not the only one this happens to.

They should start a support group themselves, Wives Lost in the Fine Art of Blogging, or something!! Too funny!

hehe I never give up sex for blogging, however I do get up early to read in peace!

Blogger Mommy off the Record said...

Rose and Chelle, yeah, I gave up sex for blogging. My priorities go something like:

1. Eating (chocolate)
2. Blogging
3. Sleeping
4. Sex

Sometimes, 2 and 3 are switched, but that's pretty much it. LOL

Hello-my name is Tracie and I am addicted to blogs. My husband tried to do an intervention, but I just threw myself over the computer and screamed "NO NO--don't smash in my moniter with that sledge hammer anything but that. I promise to come to bed after 76 straight hours in front of the computer-really I do--no this time I mean it....just one more okay honey?"

Oh, my house is a wreck, my husband is needy, the laundry needs to be done and I blame it all on the stinkin internet!
If I could just tear myself away from it, I could get a lot done!

I totally love your blog. You have a great sense of humor. As a mommy sometimes you just HAVE to stay up late and get some time alone. I don't know how old your son is but he sounds little. And when you have little ones sometimes the choice between "cuddling" and blogging is a very easy one. See ya around!
