Aaannnnnnddddddd Candyland has had enough of it (that's right)

So, my carptun has me by the BLEEP, and the offspring is sick, so today, I let the hubs take over. My comments are in red...because candy canes are half red...I guess.

The hubs is writing this post under the pressure of a gun to the head from Candyland. Seriously...if you could see the look on her face...its like a gun.  Really.  Apparently Candyland doesn't heed to the word can't because when I said that I can't just write a blog post she seemed to think that was bull-poo and continued the gun-like stare in my direction.
Continuing gun stare...you can't do anything about it.

So the hubs did what he always does when Candyland passes down a command...took to browsing the internet.  I mean, I like to guest-post and all, but the hubs requires some pre-planning.  I like to have something to blog about...I guess.  And then, like a bullet from the gods, it hit me. Snowboarding.
And here we go...*eye roll*

It's my favorite thing to do in the history of things no comment (insert innuendo HERE). You see, the hubs has been at a snowboarding retirement party since the little bun hit the oven. But now, the offspring has her own snowboard and IT IS ON!!!Do people still say that phrase or just the ones who also say BRING IT?  The hubs lives snowboarding.  I talk about it.  I dream about it.  I think about it.  I wish for it.  Aaannnnnnddddddd Candyland has had enough of it.
You can say that again.

Aaannnnnnddddddd Candyland has had enough of it.
Gee, thanks.

It posses me like a demon. The worst part of it is, here in Ohio, we wont be able to snowboard until Christmas if we're lucky.  Soooooo, all I can do is talk about snow, where its snowing, how much snow its snowing somewhere else, what snowboard gear I want for Christmas, what la nina means for snow forecasts, what the offspring needs to complete her snowboard get-up, and about snowboard camp.  Yes, I said snowboard camp.
Cheese and rice stop saying the word SNOW.

I like to text Candyland things like, Timberline got 50" in 72 hours.  Meadows is opening Saturday.  She responds with something fun like, we don't live there so it doesn't matter.  True my dear, but our Oregon trip is hopefully around the corner.  And our potential move is hopefully in the works.  God's country awaits and a real snowboard season is waiting.  Along with powder days and bluebird skies.  Bring on the snow.
Please, snow, so I don't have to hear about it as much...


Till next time, the hubs is out.
Candyland, too.
P.S. You can now order J2W tees from the simplified form HERE. Contest has been extended to Dec. 23rd so I can raise more for the families in Ghana. MOREMOREMORE. For Thanksgiving this year, help me, help them. Click HERE.

Candyland, I hope your carpal lets go of you soon!

Great post, hubs. I too love snowboarding! I haven't been for awhile, living in London and all, but back in Canada, I used to go quite often. I understand the possession!

Shannon said...

Sorry to hear about your hands. Quite lame. But at least the hubs came to the rescue. I can relate to the obsessive snow talk, but not the snowboarding (gasp!). I'm old school - I like mah skis! =)

Have a good day, Candy-brood.

ha ha to the hubs blink twice if you think you are in any form of danger.
Candy is the brace working out for you? and where they able to tell you what caused the carptun? mine was not writing by the way

Susan Fields said...

Hubs, you sound a lot like my hubs, except he obsesses over skiing. His dream is to move to Colorado. For now, we just spend our spring breaks there.

Get better soon, Candyland!

Shain Brown said...

Way to show that resilient never surrender candy-ness.I hope this thing gets better for you. Have a great Thanksgiving with the family unit.

Kelly said...

Good luck with the carpel, Candace. Not a good thing if you are a blogger and writer!
Do you snowboard too?
Or do you tell hubs, "sNOw Way!"?
May it snow lots and lots(after your travels for New Meds) in late December for the hubs (as long as it misses Illinois on the way)!

Angela Felsted said...

Wow, your hubby is way nice to type this post for you! And it was a pretty entertaining read too.

Kelly Breakey said...

I still say "it is on" as well as the other, "bring it" so I guess now I am officially uncool.

Cool!

Gobble Gobble Gobble. Which is turkey speak for "what of it" which I also still say.

In case you wanted to know.

hi mr erik! (and miss candace to)
snowboarding is sooooo cool! i didnt ever do it but i love watching it for sure. you gotta be pretty balanced on that board or for sure youre gonna go flying off. i like all those neat tricks you could do. i didnt know you guy were gonna do a move to where theres more snow. that caught me on a surprise. for you miss candyland im hoping your wrist gets better fast. i hope you got that brace and its helping. maybe you could need to get that program where you talk and it just puts it right in the computer for you.
...hugs from lenny

I almost had my hubs comment instead of me because I'm feeling particularly snarky today :)

Colene Murphy said...

Such a bummer. I really hope you feel better soon.
And I really enjoy your hubs+you posts. They're always funny. And without you in this one, I donno if I could have taken all the snow talk...demon white filth of freezing insanity...

Nicole Zoltack said...

lol I don't think I could convince my hubby to guest blog for me. Or if he did, it would probably be something sports related.

Bekah said...

hahaha! this is my hubs and dirtbikes

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Girl, my hubby would just let me shoot him before he would write a blog post for me. Way cool! You two are just the cutest!

Ben Spendlove said...

Dude, I get to leave work early because there's a blizzard rolling in from the general direction of Oregon. Awesome. Hope it's as good (meaning severe) as the weather service says.

Matthew Rush said...

Man you guys need to move to Oregon STAT! Once you do it WILL BE ON!

Vicki Rocho said...

Have you checked in with the doc about the carptun? I think there's a shot you can get to alleviate the worst of it.

And for your guest hosting other half: Snow is a four letter word. I would gladly ship you ever flake that lands in my yard this winter...

Creepy Query Girl said...

Ugh, I wish my dh would guest post sometimes. But he wouldn't be able to blog about something normal like snowboarding. I'd almost be afraid to see what he came up with since he's really into conspiracy theory right now..*sigh*
