Today I have been cleaning and thinking...
Tomorrow will be 18 years since my first date with Hubby.
That is awe inspiring, and freaky.
Why? Because, as I sit here contemplating that fact, I am struck by several incongrous things. I know it has in fact been 18 complete years in my mind/brain/logic and yet it doesn't 'feel' like it can be true.
Just like the fact that as I sit here at 42 1/2 which I know for a fact I am, I do not 'feel' like I can possibly be that age!
Bizarre. Mind boggling.
Just some random thoughts for you today, as they roll about my head... lol
Marriage. That's another thing I have been thinking about. You really have no clue at all what you are getting into when you get married. Your brain is all full of those endorphins of 'new love' and oh boy, reality hits hard.
Marriage is work. It is a full time job in and of itself if you want to have a good, growing, prosperous, happy one.
And, it is hard.
No one really tells you how hard. It's kind of like the childbirth/labor thing. No one really tells you the hardcore truth about that either. LOL
There is one thing that makes my marriage easy on the 'hard days/weeks/months/years'.
And, it isn't that I 'love' my Hubby, because I have seen people who love each other have to be apart to be healthy and live.
No, love isn't quite enough, but it is a necessaryingredient.
The one thing is that we really ENJOY each other, are FRIENDS, and have FUN together.
That is what gets you through it all. Being able to laugh. Being able to really have fun and enjoying the time together. Really enjoying it. Not just getting through, doing what you have to do, but wanting to be with each other doing 'stuff'. Stupid stuff, life stuff. But, doing it together.
Yeah... like I said... just 'stuff' rolling around in my head today.
Okay... signing off. More things to clean, straighten and do. Looking forward to Hubby getting home from work. ;-)
Yep... and he loves me anyway!
