Funny Reality

Thought I’d share some wife humor 🙂

Speaking of humor.. all relationships need it. I know mine does. Thankfully, my husband and I share a very similar sense of humor. We enjoy the same comedians, we both think that animals doing funny things, sports bloopers, and kids hitting their dad in the groin with baseball bats are hilarious (IT IS!!).

We could each come home in the worst mood, we had our own issues to deal with at work, we don’t want to talk about it over dinner, in fact, we don’t wanna talk to each other at all. The dishes get done in silence. We go to bed. One of us will start watching youtube videos. The other scootches over to see. We are still silent. Next thing you know, a cat dressed in a shark costume is sitting on a roomba with a baby duck. (If that doesn’t make you laugh…) Humor has saved the evening! We don’t rely on humor to keep our relationship strong or to fix anything. But it is for sure a help!

Being married now for 66 days (longest I’ve ever been married! 😉 woohoo! ), I am far from a professional when it comes to relationships and marriage. I’m a pre-rookie. I just made that up..  If I thought that I knew what arguments were, or what it means to compromise.. I was wrong. Married compromises and arguments, or as we call them, discussions, are soo different! You can’t just say “You’re wrong, I don’t want to be your wife anymore.” Being married is tough work! Not that I’m complaining, I absofrickenlutely love it! But It doesn’t get easier once you’re married! I wouldn’t say I’m learning that the hard way, I’m just learning it.

And on top of having to share a home with 2 smelly boys (one is 5 and the other is 27) I am non-stop researching Alameda, California for our upcoming move!! We leave in 23 days!! I’m looking for a place to live, a job, and activities for Dylan and I to get involved with so he can meet some kids before he starts kindergarten! I am doing all of this while working at my current job. Vacation anyone? Yes Please!

So once again, If you want to help me out with a job or rental home, I will be your best friend! 🙂

Best Mother’s Day gift?

Just alittle over 2 weeks away.. Mother’s Day is THE most important holiday. Right moms?! 😉

I always try to out-do my siblings with gifts for mom.. afterall, I am her favorite and give the best gifts, Right mom!?

I started my Mother’s Day shopping alittle early, gotta make sure I also out-do my last year’s gift. Cause Mom deserves better each year, cause just like wine, she gets better with time. (Im your favorite, right??)
