In my Timehop today there was a picture of a writing challenge that I obviously took a picture of and was thinking that perhaps I would try and do it and then didn’t. Blogging is kind of like housework sometimes…I am easily distracted and get off course.
It’s going to be a challenge just finding the time to sit down everyday and write about each thing on the list…but I am going to give it a whirl.
The first day is…Your Current Relationship, if single, discuss how single life is.
Well I am not single so let me share the
boring juicy details of my current relationship, which is marriage.
The King of the house and I met back in 2008. He found his winning prize…yours truly…on yahoo personals. I was living the single life with no kids and no responsibilities …well unless you count work and bills as part of those.
I have to admit that I was a little intimidated by him upon meeting him in person for the first time. But a couple beers later and I was like *here’s my number…stop staring at my boobs…and call me if you want to hang out again.* He was blowing up my phone with text messages 10 minutes later even though he will never admit it. You know guys and how smooth they think they are.
It wasn’t long before we were attached at the hip *grins* if you know what I mean. And over the course of the next 3 years we would add three more children to the two he had when we got together.
Let’s fast forward to current day.
We will be celebrating our 8 year wedding anniversary on May 20th. It’s really hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that I have been in a relationship for that long. My previous relationships never made it past 5 years. It had actually become a joke between my friends and I. It was like a 5 year “you’re fucking out of here” curse.
Luckily there were never any children involved.
Now I’m not saying that we haven’t had some close calls of calling it quits but I really just don’t think there are any other people that could put up with either one of us. We are both stubborn headed, I’m a little crazy, he’s a bit of an asshole, but somehow together we manage not to
murder terminate slaughter butcher massacre snuff dispose of kill each other. I mean those thoughts never even cross my mind. **picks up her halo and places it gently back over her devil horn**
But like I have written before “marriage takes work” and “doesn’t run on auto pilot“. You have to be able to laugh together, take time for one another(
or sometimes away from each other), and you have to learn to pick your battles…may I suggest only picking the ones you know you can win…just saying.
My husband and I have decided divorce isn’t an option unless we just grow to literally hate one another or I stab him in the leg with a fork. Whichever comes first. Otherwise, we are lifers!
