Of all people to completely overlook a prime innuendo, “Me Time” Mondays was ripe for the picking. So back to “Man Time” it is. Obviously this has nothing to do with being exclusive to men, it just happens to be phonetically pleasing. If anyone is offended, please remember the URL you typed to get here.

Look, there’s only so many things I can write about that I used to enjoy doing before this website. I’m guessing our readership has some amazingly interesting hobbies that fellow members would enjoy hearing about. If you have an interesting hobby let me know, we want to share your story.
Special Mother’s Day Edition
First, a shout out to the two most special ladies that I’ve had the privilege to be a part of my life.
Mrs. Tats really wasn’t sure what she wanted, so she wrote herself a Rain Check. I picked her up a nice planted orchid and bottle of her favorite whiskey, Jameson Black Barrel, until she decides on a belated gift. We had a nice relaxing morning and then packed up the kiddos and headed to the in-laws for lunch.
After that we headed back to the house to relax before getting back to the work week. We like to keep things simple.
For Mothers Day my wife wanted a day to not have to be a mother. Not in some ‘Casey Anthony’ kind of way, but in that I assumed all responsibilities — diapers, food, games, entertainment, more diapers, more food … you get the point.
So the boys and I had eggs for breakfast, watched more Boss Baby than I’m happy to admit, and made general chaos in the playroom while she sipped green tea and watched some kind of chick flick/rom-com brouhaha.
Last year my parents had a pool installed at their house, which they just had opened recently. My mom was complaining about the cleaning pole she had, so my gift to her was a new cleaning pole for the pool.
Then we went to the Mother’s Day brunch buffet at the Hereford House in Independence, that was actually in the hotel conference room. As you might imagine, it was one of the highest quality buffets I’ve ever had.
Then we talked about her finances for some reason, and I discovered that she had 10 fewer years left on her mortgage than she thought, so I’m sure that was a good Mother’s Day gift.
On Sunday, myself, Mrs. Sporting, and our son headed over to a friend’s house where we had homemade tacos and margaritas with them and their kids (sorry kids, no margaritas for you). The wive’s did an exchanging of gifts but overall it was just nice to see them again since it’s been a while since we have hung out.
For gifts, I ended up going with two local businesses that my wife frequents: her favorite hair salon and a tiny little flower shop. Look, I’m an idiot when it comes to flowers – sure, I know what most of them are but if given the opportunity to design my own bouquet, well it’s probably best that we don’t. Thankfully, the two ladies inside The Flower Hut were super helpful and put together a bouquet that the wife really loved in a matter of minutes. Finally, the weather ended up being really nice for a change so the three of us just played outside in the sun and shared quite a few laughs – nothing beats that. Happy Mother’s Day!
I started my day by going to get my wife coffee and flowers with my daughter. She gets all the credit for the gifts of course because she’s way cuter than me. I love my wife so much that I decided to make her some blueberry waffles, eggs, and bacon. Yeah that’s right, I am a good house husband, you’d be lucky to have me. But the real man part of Mother’s day was our trip to the Renaissance Faire. What’s more manly than turkey legs, beer, swords, and jousting? I mean it’s only Omaha so it wasn’t the biggest one I’ve ever been to, but still we had fun pushing the baby around and making fun of all the people dressed up, especially the furry’s. If you aren’t familiar with the term look it up. My wife and I make fun of everyone so it’s not a big deal. The best way to celebrate Mother’s Day! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!
