Happy Birthday Scott

Yesterday was my wonderful husband’s 32nd birthday.

And my gift to him?

Besides this:

And this:

I was unplugged. From 5:30 p.m. Friday until 7 a.m. Sunday.

Except there was one flaw in my plan of wifely AWESOMENESS. On Friday night, Scott was post-call. And asleep by 9 p.m.. I haven’t gone to bed at 9 p.m. since before Obama became president. (And that might have just been a Bush-years depression.)

So I was unplugged mostly on Saturday.


Or for like 90% of his birthday weekend. Otherwise, I’m just a pretty good wife who loves my husband very much.

And managed to make his entire birthday post about me.

So maybe I AM THE BEST WIFE EVER {in my mind}

Alex Iwashyna

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. hmmm just realised that your kid can only watch 30 min TV but you are plugged in most of the time. hows a 30 min a week computer challenge sound?

    (just kidding, jelous cause I can’t do the TV challenge)

    Happy b.day to hubby

  2. So funny- my Scott get’s backpacks for his birthday, too. Last year, a Kelty backpack to carry Hayden in (which he promptly outgrew). This year, a Northface backpack to take to work.

  3. Happy belated Birthday to Alex’s husband! And my husband covets your gift. Guess I might just have to be as generous as you when his big say comes around … =>
