Writing Challenge Day 1

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**

marriage relationship humor

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!

Momsterslink ~ Jan 5, 2017

Happy New Year everyone!!!  I really hope everyone enjoyed their holidays…I know I did.

I have decided that at this time I will not be running #momsterslink.  I would like to just get back to the basics of enjoying blogging and working on my photography and design projects.  I find that when I run the linky I spend most of my blogging time only dealing with the linky and not enough time to write or do other stuff.

As my littles are getting older and aren’t so little anymore, their lives and mine are becoming busier and busier.  And I found myself really burnt out at the end of last year.  I have lots of stuff to blog about.

I want to thank all of those who took the time to link up with me each and every week and the ones who came from time to time.  I will still enjoy reading your blogs…just on my own time and probably through the many other linkys that exist.

So for now I say farewell to the hostessing in linky land but I am looking forward to where I plan to take my blog next.

Ta Ta For Now,

Momsterslink ~ October 13, 2016

Hello my fellow linkers….I am sad to say that there will be no #momsterslink today. **makes sad face**

I have had a lot going on and blogging is going to have to be put on hold for the moment.

I hope to return at sometime next week.

Thanks for your understanding and a huge THANK YOU to Heather over at Shank You Very Much for hostessing for me last week!

Until We Meet Again,
