The 'Burbs

For the past 3 days I have had a cold. It's really wiped me out and Hubby has been complaining because he has had to fend for himself...:( So we were a little on the outs with each other, but by last night he was ready to make up.




The only thing I ask for, when I'm sick, is that I get the same care and love that I give to others in my house, when they are sick. Is that too much to ask for I wonder? So as the day went on yesterday, I pouted because, well no one was giving me the special treatment I thought I deserved. It was just everything as usual. But then I guess the little light bulb went off in Hubby's head, and he became very solicitous. "What can I get for you Babe" "Are you alright, Sweetie" That kind of thing.


He even went out to get KFC, because I wasn't up to fixin' supper, and comes home with this huge cup of .....you got it...... ICE!! Just like I like it....(those of you who read my earlier post, know how I love ICE)






But then he made a fatal mistake, as far as he was concerned, he asked me what I wanted to watch on TV. I had recorded on the DVR, this great movie that I just LOVE....I think it's hilarious!! The Burbs Starring Tom Hanks, Have you seen it? It's an older movie, about these guys who all live on this street, and well they spy on their neighbors!! It's one of those funny comedies I can over and over, much to Hubby's despair! Lol!



It's a really cute movie and if you are ever in seach of something to watch at Blockbuster and can't find anything recent, take home The Burbs, and kick back with a bag of buttered popcorn and a big glasses of ICE cold Diet Coke, maybe a box of raisinettes! (another one of my secret favorite things) and enjoy the movie.



Oh and don't feel too sorry for poor Hubby, I did lay on the couch with my box of Kleenex and watch the entire Bulls-Celtics game 7. So I guess he can't really complain too much that I made him watch The Burbs.



Remember that today is God Answer's Prayers Sunday I need to get a button made up. Please leave me any prayer request that you have and I will pray for it everyday this week.


Have a great week,
