I'm ok with the Random

*That new med made me nauseous last week. Everything was gross. Food was gross. Trees were gross. The sun was gross. Rain, also gross. Watching tv, gross. The vultures outside, gross. The car, gross. Even Peanut was gross. But this week is better. Peanut is off the gross list. Actually he has a doctor appointment today and I'll be feeling sorry for him because of the invasive things they'll be doing to his derrière. But he doesn't want me to talk about that.

*A lot of people made fun of me in high school for taking French not Spanish. "When the hell are you ever gonna need that? People here speak Spanish, dumbass!" They said. Well jackasses, if you read here, and I know a few of you are, I use it all the damn time and none of ya'll even remember one friggin Spanish word. So sit down!

*Sometimes my husband will do something and I'll think to myself, I have the best damn husband on Earth. Like lately he's been turning on the heating pad my Grandma bought me and putting it on my side of the bed under the blankets. He knows how sensitive I am to temperatures now. So when I go to bed, my side of the bed is warm. It's these little things that keep me from screaming at him when he splashes water all over the sink and 'forgets' to clean it up.

*Speaking of sinks, we have separate bathrooms. This is the key to a healthy marriage, I am convinced of this. I use the master bath because it has a bigger closet. We don't use the master bedroom connected to the master bath because I hated the tiny window in that room when we moved in. So we sleep in the smaller room with the big eastern window and I trod, or I should say stagger every morning across the living room to my bathroom and closet to wash up and get dressed. And since I'm on the topic of closets and healthy marriages, I have to say that separate closets are also essential. At least, in my marriage they are. He can splash to his heart's content all over his bathroom and I don't have to look at it. And I can fill my closet with all kinds of shoes and be as disorganized as I like and we don't have to argue over closet space. We're closing in on our 11th anniversary(in March)so I think I may be onto something....

*And since I'm also on the topic of my upcoming anniversary, a snowbird lady I talk to sometimes who didn't know I was married said to me when I told her about my anniversary ,"Damn girl, you musta' been born married! Girls in the south still get married too damn young? You southerners, I swear!" I was 20, not 12. 20 is a bit young but still though there's a difference. And anyway, I'm not from the south. I just grew up here so I'm a southerner by preference. He's not my cousin for crying out loud. So I don't know what all the shock was about.

Now that was a fun read! The marriage part was classic! He's not your cousin. You're not 12.

Oh, that's funny! :)

I'd hug you, but I am pretty sure you'd think it was gross....

I love your blog. And you just might have the very best husband in the world. But not today. It's our 20th anniversary today, so Phil gets the nod.

And I was 19 when we got married. Just babies, we were.

I'm so glad you're feeling better!

I'm going to try convince Florian to build another bathroom.

I'm glad peanut is looking better again. I hope the rest of the list will also be coming on line soon.

Sounds like she was complimenting you for how young you look. I have to try not to get offended when people tell me I look like I'm 14, so I can understand your annoyance.

Also, I've heard separate finances also help with a healthy marriage.

We only have one bathroom (always have) which sucks, and we don't have a lot of "closets" per se...
so we turned a whole room into a closet.
Turns out that works too, marriage-wise.

I'm glad you're beginning to feel better. Your husband is a sweetheart, splashing water and all.

Happy anniversary to you both! Ours is tomorrow (25th) and there is nothing better than knowing you are with the right one. Separate bathrooms never hurts, either.

Oops, not 25th anniversary for us. January 25th.

Which day is yours?
