I frequently write about my relationship with my husband. I like to joke at his expense often. (Sorry honey) The truth is I know that I am no picnic. I am moody, cranky and many times I do not give him enough credit for all that he does around the house and with our daughter. I say to myself “Well, he knew what he was getting into when he married me.” Did he really though? You think that you are the same person that you were before you got married, but how true is that really?
Dating: Bought a new outfit, shaved my legs, did my nails, makeup and curled my hair before every date. I continued to primp until he rang the doorbell.
Married: Get home from work and throw my bra on the floor. Wash all the makeup off my face, throw my hair in a bun and change into something more comfortable. “Hey, how many days have I worn these sweats on the floor?” They smell clean. I think these have one more day left in them.
Dating: “Honey, can I get you a beer? Uh oh! I don’t have the beer that you like. I better go to the store. Let me chill this beer mug before I leave.”
Married: “You are closer to the kitchen than I am. Get your own beer.”
Dating: Excused myself to use the bathroom because I had to fart. Ran the water, flushed the toilet and sprayed air fresher to cover up the sound or any lingering smell.
Married: “The dog did it”
Dating: “Oh my god, you are so funny” (Giggling and flipping my hair.)
Married: “I’m sorry hon, did you say something?”
Dating: “Oh Yeah, I love football. The Pats are my favorite.”
Married: “The games on? Uuugggh! I will be in the bedroom watching “Once Upon A Time”
Dating: Gave him an erotic massage while wearing sexy lingerie.
Married: Unbutton the top button of my flannel pajamas and whisper “The baby’s asleep.”
