The Other Woman.

Hubby is having an affair. She lives in Atlanta, and has a lot to offer, she even has an exotic name, IKEA. I'm not really the jealous type, in fact, I kind of like her too. We met once about 2 years ago. We spent all day together and yet, I walked away feeling like I could have spent so much more time with her. I guess Hubby felt the same way. I think he has been on-line with her since then, but recently he's been visiting in person. 3 times in the last month or so. My only complaint with his new girlfriend is that she demands he bring my car when he comes to visit. She likes the extra cargo space... go figure. But this leaves me stranded. 3 car seats won't fit in his car, so here I sit, left to wonder what he will be bringing back for us this time. It's always something good. Bookcases and storage bins for the playroom, dressers and lamps for the twins, a fun play tent for the Munchkin. All gifts meant to ease the guilt he feels over his transgressions. I don't know if it works for him, but it makes me feel better.. It's more than what I bring him when I visit my boyfriend, Gap.

So there it is, our dirty laundry. The sorted tales of our open relationship. I know we aren't the only ones that live this progressive lifestyle, but not a lot of people will talk about it openly. I hope this post will inspire you to be more "open." Who knows what you might get out of the deal!

Perhaps one day, YOU'LL need to begin an affair of your own with IKEA. She's quite the heartbreaker though, I hear.

How far is that from you guys? Two or three hours? It's funny. Houston & Philly had the first two & I have been maybe twice ever.

I have also had an affair with IKEA. When I was pregnant in fact. I'm not necessarily proud of it, and the ho left me practically penniless, but she'd tempt me back with kitchen gadgets and yummy Swedish meatballs.

I witnessed it! I was there and saw the whole thing! He sat in chairs, evaluated her shelving, and examined her lighting. The most horrible part is that he took my Hubby too!!!! (I just followed along to spy...)

You guys are so funny and I have no idea what (who) you are refering to.
Much love, Your Aunt

I have never had an affair with IKEA, I think I should give it a try!

Oh my, I am so naive. If you all have had run-ins with IKEA, then I'm sure either I or Hubby have.
I don't know, do you think that's why I, Princess Motormouth, got a new vehicle the week of FATHER'S DAY?

Oh I covet IKEA. It makes that dreaded in-law trip great! I just want to spend all day there and never make it to the in-laws! Add in a case of 2 1/2 buck chuck and well Atlanta traffic just does not seem so bad!

I am guessing there is no chance that we are getting an IKEA here in the Ham anytime in my lifetime though... Such a shame.
