|1st "test" of married life: feed the cake nicely or stuff it|
Can I start by saying "I can't believe I missed the 7 yr itch!" without you thinking "That's a horrible thing to say!!" or "I can't believe she said that!" But seriously people, a decade has just gone by and I have no idea where it went...I mean I'm still mentally at least 26 - I might be younger...I don't feel like I'm old enough to have been married 10 yrs...I don't feel old enough to have a 2 1/2 yr old either! But wow...I guess I am on both counts. I guess it's flown by so quickly because, well hey - we have a lot of fun.
|That's right, I stuffed it and I would do the same today.|
Okay, and to be honest - Rusty has traveled for almost 1/2 of that time - which in turn means I've traveled for 1/2 the time, and when I say we've traveled I don't mean we've traveled together...nope he travels for work and I travel for fun. You see when you get married, you kinda designate things to each other...so I took it upon myself to designate the cooking, working, and worrying to Rusty, while I took on the cleaning, playing, child incubating/birthing, and more fun. It's kinda an even split when you think about it from my perspective...except for the child incubating/birthing - that's on a whole other level...
Speaking of the kid, this morning the monkey decided to jump out of his bed and come running out of his room to find me! That's right folks, today marks the day where he realized that he could release his "seat belt" in his car bed, "unlock and open the door", and get out of bed all on his own! It's only taken him 5 days to figure this out...you know what that means right? It means it might take him a little longer than some kids, but he'll get it...it also means his imagination is off the charts because for 5 days I had him convinced I could keep him in his bed!! Either that or my mind control is really strong with my 2 1/2 yr old! I knew at some point he'd "test" that out and discover that he could get out of bed without any help, I was just hoping I'd have a little more time. In addition to suddenly discovering this he continues to talk up a storm...for instance after we ate breakfast we heard a loud noise and the monkey told me all about what he thought it was and then he insisted he needed to go check it out and see...and it being morning, I was a little slow in grabbing the camera as he was explaining it, but I eventually got it together...
Then after we played, listened to music, did some laundry, and made some granola it was time to clean up his kitchen area. The other day we changed his room around - he now has a "big boy room", which he loves, but I decided we'd work through his kitchen area - not that we did much, but he did say "we need to organize mommy" so that's what we did! Once we got it picked up I decided that we'd make his huge box into something - because it's been used as a "toy box" which I can't stand because it looks horrible...so instead he now has this really cool train!
But back to us...Happy 1st Decade to us!! When we got married I told Rusty he was stuck with me for 50 yrs - so we've only got 4 more decades to go!! Or if that sounds too long, then we only have "2 score" to go (you're impressed I knew how many years "a score" was aren't you?!)...but no matter what - if the next 10 go as fast as the past 10 we're going to be creeping up on 50 in no time!
