Once you get the rug rats…er children to bed..the evening stretches out before you.
It is yours.
Is it time for a luxurious bath without said Hubby wanting to join you?
A chance to put on your terrifying hardening mask that after all these years you would still rather he not see?
Perhaps wax some of those bits and pieces in privacy?
Maybe you want to get caught up on all that girly TV?
Or watch that chic flick and bawl your eyes and Enjoy.Every.Tear.
You know that stash of chocolate you have hidden. Time to break it out because tonight you don’t have to share!
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of giving the Hubby the golden pass for a night out with the boys. He now thinks without a shadow of a doubt that YOU are the coolest wife ever and the next time you want ANYTHING and I mean anything…it’s yours baby.
“Mmmm I have had my eye on a little something.” You whisper.
“Yours!” The Hopeful Hubby declares!
You hold the power baby:)
When the now Drunken Hubby arrives home, all sloppy and lovey. He tells you how much he adores you. How you are the most beautiful, sexiest, coolest wife in the world.
You tell him to shush and go to sleep.
The glorious snoring begins.
No matter how hard you try you can not stop a man from snoring who has had one too many. Trust me…I have tried them all. I have not yet figured out How to Out Smart a Snorer.
Eventually you stomp and grab that pillow. Head down the hall for peace and quiet.
The next morning as he suffers, head in hands, moaning as you offer to cook him some runny eggs, you can relish in the fact that you are still the coolest, most beautiful wife ever.
You can also enjoy the promises he made in the previous nights stupor!
Today shelves will be hung. Furniture will be re-arranged, and we are going to look for a new dining room table!
Ha! See. There are many hidden benefits to the nights when a Hubby goes drinking.
