My husband is honest with me – for better or worse.  Sometimes he is honest with me when I would prefer that he lie a bit. For example:

All in all, I prefer his honesty.  I can rely upon it and I trust him.

#347: Dark Chocolate May 12, 2012

I love dark chocolate for two reasons:

  1. it’s delicious, complex, a little bitter, and not too sweet
  2. my husband doesn’t like it

No matter how long I leave it hanging around, I know he won’t eat it.  🙂

 

 

 

#319: Having a functional home April 14, 2012

My goal is to have a functional home.  In terms of cleanliness that means balance: clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy.  🙂  My husband and I work full-time and we don’t have a maid.  Between errands, chores, shopping, cooking, laundry, yard work, etc. it’s hard to get it all in.  Plus, we have been working out and we do need some down time.  So we try to have a sane and healthy approach which is do the best we can!  You can’t eat off the floor in our house but it’s not too bad!  🙂

# 315: Morning person April 10, 2012

I am the morning person of the couple.  Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.  Where did that come from?  It appears to be a reference to a squirrel but means alertly eager and full of energy and enthusiasm.  That is definitely me in the morning, but can last throughout the day.  My husband is not a morning person, nor would I describe him as full of enthusiasm – not in the morning, and not really during the rest of the day.  I might call my husband a pessimist but he would say he’s a realist.  I know I am an optimist but my husband would call me Pollyanna.  I guess we are back to opposites attract.

#313: Opposites attract April 8, 2012

I play too many games.  My husband is grouchy.  To have harmony that means I need to play less and he needs to lighten up.  We are always moving towards the middle, towards peace, towards compatibility and balance.  Compromise is a beautiful thing.

#297: My Husband’s Fried Fish March 23, 2012

The other afternoon my husband called me at work and said, “How do you want me to cook the fish.”  We had thawed some fish. Of course, what I should have answered was “Bake it.”  Instead, I said, “You can fry it.”  And he did.  My husband makes the most awesome fried fish (and fried chicken and fried pork chops). You get the idea.  Anyway, the fish looked lovely frying in the pan in all that magnificent grease!  I just had to take a picture but I don’t think I did it justice.

I know, frying is not good.  But every once in a while…  🙂
