I'm being kicked off my computer (technically the 2nd one of my hubby's) around 7:30 or so because my husband wants to play Star Craft 2 with his sister from another mother (A friend of ours who lives in Alberta) online.

I shouldn't complain too much (except I LIKE to kvetch it's fun!) because I knew he was learning to design video games and he does like to play them. But seriously our friend and him have a 'date to play a game' He gets upset if something happens during an Xbox live game! Bloody hell!

So does anyone else have this problem?

As I said we have 2 computers. I just hate having to use his because along with the smaller screen (the old one blew up!) I have to change over Facebook and youtube from his accounts to mine.

To be fair to my husband he does take care of Lilli and Abby as much as I do. He even gets up at night with Lilli. Plus he's in school for 3D animation and game design so at times he does have to play a video game to do research (I'm serious!) And he doesn't play video games as much has he plays farmville and cityville.

I just wish he could keep dates with me as well as he does with our friend. I fell asleep on the couch with the baby last night waiting for him to finish (he started about 8:15)

Thankfully we have two computers but his is in the games room where as I keep mine in the lunge so occasionally he will take mine to check his e mails ot read the news or check football results. It is mine though and once I remind him of this he usually gives it back.
My son is the one who spends more time on the x box than hubby now - occasionally they will get right into a game though - two player - and end up spending the whole weekend playing it together. This does piss me off because he has three other children that would like his attention - as would I?

Nope. My husband and I both game, but if it comes to me needing the computer or our family life needing him, he bails on the game.
