To the Moon – But Remove Your Underwear!

This weekend was reserved for last minute Christmas shopping.

A family outing.

Not a tradition through. This is only our second Christmas as parents, we’re still building tradition; finding our way.

And I would never make shopping with my family part of a tradition.

I’m not unstable.

Shopping with the man that I have chosen to spend the rest of my life with causes me severe anxiety, frustration, and dangerous thoughts.

Towards him, not me.

I get irritated with his tiny bladder, cigarette breaks, ADHD I need a leash because everything shiny catches my eye and I can’t stay with the group behaviour.

I lost him more times than I care to remember.

I seriously lost him between the parking lot and the entrance to the mall.

Shopping with a man who never gets mad or shows any sign of frustration, and combats my anxiety and belligerence with comedy, can be exhausting.

But it can also be great blog fodder.

And what kind of person would I be if I didn’t share him with all of you?

…. So here you go… the day with Brian,

“We’re headed right to the moon hun!” – on the way to the mall.

“I’m not wearing underwear.” – Attempting to get me off of my phone.

“The only way to fist pump is as if no one is watching!” – While we were fist pumping to the music. WHAT? Like you don’t.

“Hun, when we’re old are we going to wear matching hats?” – After we passed an elderly couple wearing matching hats. And? Obviously!

“I do remember farting a couple times before I woke up this morning.” – Sometimes I am in awe of his intelligence.

“I think I should join a choir. Just for the holidays, you know? It would be good for the community!” – Always looking out for his fellow man.

Shopping is never just shopping with Brian! Before we even get to our destination we’ve gone to the moon without underwear on, danced the whole way with gas pains AND contemplated our a career change plus a new outfit.


When it‘s put that way, spending the day with Hyper Hypo Boy doesn‘t seem so bad.

At least I get a free trip to the moon without underwear on.

      anytime. But given how long your trip will be to get here you might want to stay a bit longer

    It sounds like shopping with him is worse than shopping with a toddler!

    I hate shopping with my Husband. Though he hates shopping with me as well. He has actually called me a Nazi because my OCD kicks in and I have to have everything perfect. 🙂 I’m glad to see that your hubs did in deed make it out alive. 🙂

    Don’t worry about losing him in the mall. Just pin a note on him with your cell number and sooner or later someone will return him. I do like the matching hat thing…Maybe Santa will bring you one like his and Peanuts. 🙂

    I hope he was the one paying for all the shopping to at least make the trip worth it. 😉

    Aw, you two are adorable together! Hugs to you both. And what’s not to love about going to the moon and back without underwear on??? :))

    I must say that shopping with a spouse has never been my favorite thing to do. Oh the glare that always came when it all came down to signing the credit card receipt… LOL

      He doesn’t have control of our finances. IF he did we would have no money.
      BUT he does think he can find a better bargain than me.
      The man is out of his mind!

    Yesterday I shouted to my husband “What brand of depends do you use”
    Know how crowded the store was?
    Know how red his face got?
    Then he said that I was embarrassing him.
    Won’t be the first or last time I hear that.
    Farts are always funny.

      OMG! I am laughing so hard!
      Cause I’m storing that in my embarrassment bank to use on Brian the next time we’re out at the WHALLmart.
      This might just replace my pushing him into displays.

    My husband hates crowds and turns on his iPod when I make him go shopping.

    Would be fun to have a clown along for the trip!

      Brian is the one singing when we’re shopping.
