how's married life…

Comments 7 by Rebecca Bollwitt
…We get asked that a lot and well folks – it ain’t perfect by any means. If it were we’d have to kick our own asses just to generate some sort of excitement.

Don’t get me wrong, I think we’re doing pretty okay. We have little idiosyncrasies can annoy the crap out of each other, we have our time apart, we have our seperate likes/dislikes etc. and we are not one single blob of a marrital unit. But man, (sappy moment, Laura, avert your eyes) there’s no one else we’d rather be going through all of this with.

Yesterday we happenned to have a great day to ourselves. With no real agenda it started off with a wicked home cooked breakfast, followed by a trip to the beach, Pirates of the Caribbean and ice cream right before bed time. Today included a trip to the Fort (see my Metblog post for more details) then an afternoon at home watching the Cubs.

Staying at home & watching MST3K, being beach bums, loving hockey (even in the off season), watching baseball, getting out n’ about in the city AND the valley. This is our married life.

    Watching the Cubs last night was not a good way to end the weekend, but as loyal fans, we watched it to the end. Too bad, so sad………

    I like that word “idiosyncrasies.” John always called them “discussions.”

    those kinds of times are when you really know that your relationship is for real. my boyfriend and i aren’t married, but after 6 years together we still have a blast when we hang out and have no plans…

    You going to work doesn’t count as time apart…. Amazingly enough I didn’t gag when I read your blog, though the picture made my stomache heave a little.

    To those who don’t know me: I’m the unofficial observer in their marriage. The gooiness is neverending. They’re like an American Express commercial (or is it MasterCard?): They don’t leave home without it.

    We play it up for you Laura :p Not my fault you took a stupid 1230-830pm shift and now we can never do dinner together again (sniff sniff)

    maybe I took the shift on purpose so I wouldn’t have to be privy to all your antics that should stay in the privacy of your own home?! I think the once-a-week occasional dinners is all my stomache can handle 😉
